Key Document


IWR6843ISK-ODS is an easy-to-use mmWave sensor evaluation kit with a short-range antenna with wide field of view (FoV) enabling direct connectivity to the mmWave sensors carrier card platform (MMWAVEICBOOST). It contains a 60-GHz mmwave radar transceiver and antenna etched on the Rogers board. The board enables access to point-cloud data through a USB interface, and raw analog-to-digital converter (ADC) data through a 60-pin high-speed connector.

This kit is supported by standard mmWave tools and software, including mmWave studio (MMWAVE-STUDIO) and the mmWave software development kit (MMWAVE-SDK). IWR6843ISK-ODS paired with MMWAVEICBOOST (sold separately) can interface with the MCU LaunchPad™ development kit ecosystem.

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