Abstract

The AM273x EVM is an Evaluation module designed to develop software and evaluate the AM273x Radar Controller and Processor SoC from Texas Instruments. The AM273x is a multicore SoC designed to provide an integrated control and processing platform for TI AWR mmWave radar front-end devices in both single-device and cascaded modes of operation. The signal interface between the AM273x EVM and the AWR2243BOOST mmWave Radar EVM uses the 60-pin Samtec high density connector.
