mmWave AWR – Tools & software

Development tools

AWR1243 Evaluation Module

The standard 20-pin headers enable it to connect to mmwave-devpack and capture raw data for RF performance evaluation.

AWR1443 Evaluation Module

Easy-to-use evaluation board for the AWR1443 automotive radar devices from TI, with direct connectivity to the TI MCU LaunchPad™ ecosystem.  The evaluation board contains everything needed to start developing on a low-power ARM®-R4F controller.

  • The board includes onboard emulation for programming and debugging, onboard buttons, and LEDs, for quick integration of a simple user interface.

AWR1642 Evaluation Module

Easy-to-use evaluation board for the AWR1642 automotive radar sensor, with direct connectivity to the microcontroller (MCU) LaunchPad™ Development Kit.

Real-Time Data-Capture Adapter

The DCA1000 provides real-time raw sensor data capture and streaming over ethernet from TI mmWave Sensor EVMs. 

DesignCore Automotive mmWave Radar Starter Kit

The starter kit accelerates development of radar-based vehicle control and safety features. Includes a low-power D3 Radar Module mounted on a baseboard. The baseboard provides easy interface to a PC or embedded platform for test and evaluation.

  • Application software and demo programs for common automotive radar applications included.

mmWave devpack

Debug add-on board that can be used with the mmWave EVMs to enable next-level device high-performance front end. The evaluation platform enables raw capture of ADC data from the front end and evaluation of RF performance and debug.

CB Cline Radar Sensor Module

The radar sensor modules from CB-Cline enable development of automotive radar applications. Based on Texas Instruments AWR mmWave sensor technology, these modules scale from high performance radar front-end with TDA3x processor board to standalone radar sensors.

Code Composer Studio™ (CCStudio) IDE

Code Composer Studio (CCS) is a complete, Eclipse-based integrated development environment (IDE) that supports all the entire Texas Instruments Embedded Processors portfolio, offering a consistent development experience.


mmWave SDK

The SDK is a software package consisting of device drivers, OS abstraction layer, libraries, firmware, APIs, utilities and demo examples. The examples depict both control and data processing aspects with a cloud based visualization tool.

Device firmware package

A device firmware package for TI mmWave sensor – AWR1243 providing seamless control, configuration, calibration and monitoring capabilities for the RF/analog and digital front-end subsystem. Enables the mmWave front-end to be capable of adapting itself to dynamic conditions such as temperature.

mmWave studio

mmWave studio is a visualization tool that controls and configures TI AWR1xxx platforms. The studio enables characterization and RF performance evaluation of AWR1xxx platforms.

  • The studio further facilitates raw data capture from the AWR1xxx platform, processes this data using Matlab and finally presents the processed data using a graphical user interface (GUI).
