AWR1642BOOST is an easy-to-use evaluation board for the AWR1642 automotive radar sensor, with direct connectivity to the microcontroller unit (MCU) LaunchPad™ development kit. The BoosterPack™ plug-in module contains everything required to start developing software for on-chip C67x DSP core and low-power ARM® Cortex™-R4F controllers, including onboard emulation for programming and debugging, as well as onboard buttons and LEDs for quick integration of a simple-user interface.

A 5-V, >2.5-A supply brick with a 2.1-mm barrel jack (center positive) is not included. TI recommends purchasing an external power supply that complies with applicable regional safety standards.

  • Onboard antenna enables field testing
  • XDS110-based JTAG with serial-port interface for flash programming
  • UART-to-USB interface for control, configuration, and data visualization
  • TI LaunchPad™ development-kit interface to seamlessly connect to TI MCUs
  • CAN connector enables direct interface to car units

What's Included

  • Micro USB cable (#3025010-03)
  • Mounting brackets with Bumpon™ (#36-625-ND, SJ-5012)
  • M3-size screws (#9027A146)
  • M3-size nuts (#90631A007 )
  • Jumpers (#3M9580-ND)
