Overview

The mmWave software development kit (SDK) is a collection of software packages to enable application evaluation and development on TI mmWave sensors. This tool includes the MMWAVE-SDK and companion packages to support your design needs.

The MMWAVE-SDK is a unified software platform for the TI mmWave Sensing Portfolio, providing easy setup and fast out-of-the-box access to evaluation and development. All releases of the mmWave SDK scale between the full TI mmWave Sensing Portfolio, enabling seamless reuse and migration across devices. The mmWave SDK is the first foundational software package needed for customer application development and includes buidling blocks, demonstrations and examples.

The MMWAVE-SECDEV is a companion package to the MMWAVE-SDK for high-security (HS) devices. It contains tools to enable programming encryption keys and encrypt/authenticate program binaries.

The MMWAVE-INDUSTRIAL-TOOLBOX and the MMWAVE-AUTOMOTIVE-TOOLBOX are repositories of end equipment application demos using the EVM and a PC GUI. These applications are provided as open-source software examples and documentation that can be used to better understand application performance, or as a starting point for application development. Additional resources around antenna design, certification, and other elements of design with TI mmWave sensors may also be found here.

Demonstration applications for industrial include those tailored to people counting, robotics, traffic monitoring, gesture recognition, and more.

Demonstration applications for automotive include those tailored to front long range radar, ultra short range radar, in-cabin occupant sensing, and more.
