mmWave IWR – Tools & software

Development tools

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. 

IWR1642 Evaluation Module

IWR1642 EVM with direct connectivity to the microcontroller (MCU) LaunchPad™ Development Kit. The BoosterPack contains everything required to start developing software for on-chip C67x DSP core and low-power ARM® R4F controllers.

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

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.

DesignCore™ Industrial mmWave Sensor Starter Kit

The starter kit accelerates development of radar-based industrial navigation, sensing, and automation applications. Includes a low-power D3 mmWave Sensor Module with integrated antenna mounted on a baseboard

  • The baseboard provides easy interface to a PC or embedded platform for test and evaluation. It includes application software and demonstration programs for common industrial applications.

mmWave Demo Visualizer

The IWR1x EVMs ship with out of the box demo featuring proximity detection for objects up to 25 meters away. Multiple visualizations are available to evaluate and prototype with the sensor: scene visualization, range-velocity map, FFT of the RF signal, and more.


  • The demo is customizable through a number of system parameters like minimum/maximum range, range resolution and more, directly in the visualization GUI.

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.

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.
