Description

mmWave SDK is a collection of software packages to enable application evaluation and development on TI mmWave sensors.

MMWAVE-SDK
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. mmWave SDK is the first foundational software package needed for customer application development and includes:

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
  • Profiles tuned to common end-user scenarios, such as range, range resolution, velocity, and velocity resolution

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.

MMWAVE-INDUSTRIAL-TOOLBOX and MMWAVE-AUTOMOTIVE-TOOLBOX
These 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.

MMWAVE-SDL
This is a companion package to MMWAVE-SDK for safety-capable mmWave Devices (SIL-2, ASIL-B). The Safety Diagnostic Library (SDL) provide low-level APIs implementing built-in device hardware diagnostics.

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
    • Profiles tuned to common end-user scenarios, such as range, range resolution, velocity, and velocity resolution
  • Tools
    • Host tools including pin mux and flashing utilities
    • Code Composer Studio™ IDE for RTOS development

The mmWave SDK is free and does not require any run-time royalties to TI.
