Key Document


The IWR6843 antenna-on-package (AoP) evaluation module (EVM) is an easy-to-use mmWave sensor EVM with integrated, short-range, wide field-of-view (FoV) AoP technology, which enables direct connectivity to the mmWave sensors carrier card platform (MMWAVEICBOOST) and allows for stand-alone use.

IWR6843AOPEVM enables access to point-cloud data through a USB interface and raw analog-to-digital converter (ADC) data through a 60-pin high-speed connector.

This kit is supported by standard mmWave tools and software, including mmWave studio (MMWAVE-STUDIO) and the mmWave software development kit (MMWAVE-SDK). IWR6843AOPEVM with MMWAVEICBOOST can interface with the TI MCU LaunchPad™ ecosystem.

A 5-V 2.5-A supply brick with a 2.1-mm barrel plug (center positive), which is required for operation with MMWAVEICBOOST, is not included. TI recommends purchasing an external power supply that complies with applicable regional safety standards. This is not required for stand-alone operation.

Get started

Step 1: Buy this EVM (IWR6843AOPEVM)
Step 2: Get started with OOB application by connecting the EVM to mmWave Visualizer
Step 3: Download the MMWAVE-INDUSTRIAL-TOOLBOX-CLOUD and further evaluate additional mmWave examples and applications
Step 4: Download the MMWAVE-SDK and start developing your application code
