The IWR6843 device includes the entire Millimeter Wave blocks and analog baseband signal chain for three 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 IWR6843 device could be paired with a low-end external MCU, to address more complex applications that might require additional memory for a larger application software footprint and faster interfaces. The IWR6843 has an embedded DSP for signal processing, processing the radar signals for FFT, magnitude, detection, and other applications.
