DCA1000EVM

Real-time data-capture adapter for radar sensing evaluation module

DCA1000EVM

Overview

The DCA1000 evaluation module (EVM) provides real-time data capture and streaming for two- and four-lane low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS) traffic from TI AWR and IWR radar sensor EVMs. The data can be streamed out via 1-Gbps Ethernet in real time to a PC running the MMWAVE-STUDIO tool for capture, visualization, and then can be passed to an application of choice for data processing and algorithm development.

  • Supports lab and mobile collection scenarios
  • Captures LVDS data from AWR/IWR radar sensors
  • Streams output in real time through 1-Gbps Ethernet
  • Controlled via onboard switches or GUI/library

  • DCA1000EVM
  • Warranty card (disclaimer sheet)
  • Ethernet cable
  • Standoffs
  • Samtec® coaxial micro ribbon cable (HQCD-030-02.00-SEU-TBR-1)
