Description for the AWR1642BOOST-ODS
AWR1642BOOST-ODS is an easy-to-use 77GHz mmWave sensor evaluation board for the AWR1642 device with integrated DSP and MCU. The evaluation board comes with a patch-antenna structure that provides wide field of view (FOV) in both azimuth and elevation planes, and is suited for automotive applications where detection of objects is needed in near-range 3D space.
AWR1642BOOST-ODS contains everything required to start developing software for C67x DSP core and low-power Arm® Cortex® R4F processors and on-chip memory. The evaluation board includes onboard emulation for programming and debugging, as well as onboard buttons and LEDs for quick integration of a simple user interface.
This kit is supported by mmWave tools and software, including mmWave Studio (MMWAVE-STUDIO) and the mmWave software development kit (MMWAVE-SDK).
The standard 20-pin BoosterPack headers make the evaluation board compatible with a wide variety of MCU LaunchPad development kits and enable easy prototyping.
Additional boards may be used to enable additional functionality. For example, DCA1000EVM enables access to sensor’s raw data via LVDS interface.
A 5-V 2.5-A supply brick with a 2.1-mm barrel plug (center positive) is not included. TI recommends purchasing an external power supply that complies with applicable regional safety standards.
