Key Document


AWR1243BOOST is an easy-to-use evaluation board for the AWR1243 high-performance mmWave front end. The evaluation platform enables raw capture of ADC data from the front end for RF performance evaluation.

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.

  • Onboard antenna to enable field testing
  • XDS110-based JTAG with serial port interface for flash programming
  • UART-to-USB interface for control, configuration, and data visualization
  • TI Launchpad interface to seamlessly connect to TI MCUs
  • Powers from a single 5-V supply

What's Included

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