Overview

The AWR2944 evaluation module (EVM) is an easy-to-use platform for evaluating the AWR2944 mmWave system-on-chip (SoC) radar sensor, which has direct connectivity to the DCA1000EVM (sold separately).

The AWR2944EVM kit contains everything required to start developing software for the on-chip C66x digital signal processor (DSP), Arm® Cortex®-R5F controller, and hardware accelerator (HWA 2.0).

Also included is onboard emulation for programming and debugging, as well as onboard buttons and LEDs for quick integration of a simple user interface.
