mmWave IWR – Tools & software

Development tools

IWR6843 starter bundle


mmWave carrier platform enables flexible development on IWR devices with various antenna configurations.  Full debug, emulation, and prototyping is enabled directly through mmWave SDK and tools.  Starter bundle includes standard antenna with 120° x 30° field-of-view.


mmWave Carrier Card

mmWave carrier platform enables a single developments platform for different devices and antenna configurations through antenna plug-in modules.

Real-Time Data-Capture Adapter

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

IWR1443 Evaluation Module

Evaluation board for the single-chip IWR1443 mmWave sensor, 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. 

AoP

Antenna-on-Package plug-in modules enables rapid prototyping on IWR6843 with integrated antenna.  It is fully compatible with mmWave carrier platform, mmWave SDK and all tools.  

Software

mmWave SDK

Rapidly prototype customized application directly on the EVM with easy-to-use Software Development Kit (SDK). mmWaveSDK is a robust platform that includes TI RTOS with full peripheral drivers, APIs to configure the sensor, and libraries for the FFT HW accelerator and the DSP.

mmWave studio

mmWave Studio is a collection of web-based tools to enhance the evaluation of mmWave sensors. These easy-to-use tools provide capability to evaluate and prototype chirp designs and experiment with out-of-the-box demo.

Industrial mmWave toolbox

Industrial mmWave Toolbox is a collection of reference software labs, experiment data and chirp designs to accelerate development and rapid prototyping.  Each package provides source code, test methodology and instruction to replicate results.

mmWave Sensing Estimator

mmWave Sensing Estimator is the first step to designing a mmWave sensor-based system. This tool calculates chirp configuration of the RF front end based on simple system parameters such as maximum/minimum range, frame rate and maximum/minimum velocity.
