Description

The mmWave software development kit (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. Developing scalable sensing platform solutions has never been easier than with the mmWave SDK.

MMWAVE-SDK
This is the latest release of the mmWave SDK. Select this package for the latest features available for mmWave sensors. Updated features are documented in the release notes for each version.

MMWAVE-SDK-LTS
This is the latest release of the mmWave SDK long-term support (LTS). This package includes long-term supported features and only is supported by critical bug fixes. Updated features are documented in the release notes for each version.

Note that MMWAVE-SDK and MMWAVE-SDK-LTS may support different mmWave SoCs and/or SoC versions. Refer to the individual mmWave SDK download pages for more information on the silicon supported.

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

Features
  • Building blocks
    • Full driver availability
    • Layered approach to programming analog front end (AFE)
    • Catalog of mmWave algorithms optimized for C674x DSPs
  • Demonstrations and examples
    • TI RTOS-based demos
    • Out-of-box demo with easy configurability via TI cloud-based GUI
    • Representation of "point cloud" and benchmarking data from demo via GUI
