SWRS212B May 2017 – April 2018 IWR1642
Refer to the PDF data sheet for device specific package drawings
The IWR1642 device includes the entire Millimeter Wave blocks and analog baseband signal chain for two transmitters and four receivers, as well as a customer-programmable MCU and DSP. This device is applicable as a radar-on-a-chip in use-cases with modest requirements for memory, processing capacity and application code size. These could be cost-sensitive industrial radar sensing applications. Examples are:
In terms of scalability, the IWR1642 device could be paired with a low-end external MCU, to address more complex applications that might require additional memory for larger application software footprint and faster interfaces. The IWR1642 has an embedded DSP for signal processing, processing the radar signals for FFT, magnitude, detection and other applications.
