Overview

The AWR2243 BoosterPack™ plug-in module is an easy-to-use evaluation board for the single-chip AWR2243 mmWave sensing device.

AWR2243BOOST contains everything required to start developing using the MMWAVE-STUDIO environment and the DCA1000 real-time data capture adapter.

The standard 20-pin BoosterPack plug-in module headers make the evaluation board compatible with a wide variety of MCU LaunchPad development kits and enable easy prototyping.

Features
  • Onboard antenna enables field testing
  • Standard interface for DCA1000 connectivity and MMWAVE-STUDIO for raw data capture
  • TI LaunchPad development-kit interface to seamlessly connect to TI MCUs

  • Micro USB cable (#3025010-03)
  • Mounting brackets with Bumpon™ (#36-625-ND, SJ61A1)
  • M3-size screws (#9027A146)
  • M3-size nuts (#90631A007 )
