Description

Step 1: Buy this EVM (AWR1642BOOST)
Step 2: Download mmWave SDK
Step 3: Take the mmWave sensor device trainings
Step 4: Evaluate performance for short-range radar, vital-sign monitoring and vehicle-occupant detection applications

AWR1642BOOST is an easy-to-use evaluation board for the AWR1642 automotive radar sensor, with direct connectivity to the microcontroller unit (MCU) LaunchPad™ development kit. The BoosterPack™ plug-in module contains everything required to start developing software for on-chip C67x DSP core and low-power Arm® Cortex® R4F controllers, including onboard emulation for programming and debugging, as well as onboard buttons and LEDs for quick integration of a simple-user interface.

A 5-V, >2.5-A supply brick with a 2.1-mm barrel jack (center positive) is not included. TI recommends purchasing an external power supply that complies with applicable regional safety standards.

Features
  • Onboard antenna enables field testing
  • XDS110-based JTAG with serial-port interface for flash programming
  • UART-to-USB interface for control, configuration, and data visualization
  • TI LaunchPad™ development-kit interface to seamlessly connect to TI MCUs
  • CAN connector enables direct interface to car units
