mmwave level transmitter

IWR1443 mmWave radar sensor

Typical device performance
Application benefit
Output Raw ADC, range, angle Flexible interface to connect to existing systems
Tuning range 76-81 GHz Narrow beam to avoid clutter, smaller antenna and lenses
Range accuracy <1 mm* High accuracy range measurement for granular tank volume control
Chirp BW 4 GHz (5 GHz**) Measure closer to the tank floor and ceiling
Power output Up to 12dBm Detect in small and large tanks with the same platform
Power consumption <25 mJ/measurement*** 4-20mA two-wire interface capable
3 TX + cascading
Accurate surface mapping for solid level sensing

* High-accuracy range measurements require high-accuracy algorithm and accurate mounting
** 5GHz chirp bandwidth requires bandwidth stitching of 4GHz and 1GHz chirps
*** low power measurement require turning the device off between measurements, see TI Design for more information
