The Radar Hardware Accelerator (HWA) is an IP that enables off-loading the burden of certain frequently used computations in FMCW radar signal processing from the main processor. FMCW radar signal processing involves the use of FFT and Log-Magnitude computations to obtain a radar image across the range, velocity, and angle dimensions. Some of the frequently used functions in FMCW radar signal processing can be done within the radar hardware accelerator, while still retaining the flexibility of implementing other proprietary algorithms in the main processor. See the Radar Hardware Accelerator User's Guide for a functional description and features of this module and see the Technical Reference Manual for a complete list of register and memory map.
