Description

mmWave Studio is designed to characterize and evaluate TI mmWave sensors. mmWave sensors are configured and controlled from mmWave Studio by sending commands to the devices over SPI. Analog-to-digital converter (ADC) data is captured using the TSW1400EVM board, processed in MATLAB®, and results are displayed in the GUI.

mmWave Demo Visualizer and Sensing Estimator are web-based tools that enhance the evaluation of TI mmWave sensors. These easy-to-use tools provide capability to evaluate and prototype chirp designs and experiment with the the out-of-the-box demo. The tools are hosted directly on TI.com and enable interaction with the mmWave sensor evaluation modules. The tools can also be saved for offline use.

Features
  • mmWave Studio
    • Post-processing of ADC data and visualization of processed data
    • Board control (SOP change, reset control)
    • RS-232 connection and firmware download
    • Configures mmWave sensors using radar API commands
    • Interface to TSW1400EVM for raw ADC data capture
  • mmWave Sensing Estimator
    • Enables calculation of chirp parameters directly from scene information, such as max range, max velocity, range resolution, and more
    • Provides real-time feedback on out-of-bounds parameters
    • Enables saving and restoring of previously created chirps
  • mmWave Demo Visualizer
    • Enables real-time plotting of point cloud from output of mmWave software development kit (SDK) out-of-the-box demo
    • Fully configurable directly through GUI interface
    • Profiles tuned to common end-user scenarios, such as range, range resolution, velocity, and velocity resolution

mmWave Studio is free and does not require any royalties to TI.
