mmWave cascade imaging radar DSP evaluation module


Order now


The MMWCAS-DSP evaluation module (EVM) design provides a processing foundation for a cascaded imaging radar system. Cascade radar devices can support front, long-range radar (LRR), beamforming applications, as well as corner- and side-cascade radar and sensor fusion systems. This EVM design provides qualified developers the design materials to create a functioning software evaluation platform for developing and testing advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS).

MMWCAS-DSP-EVM aids in shortening the development time of a base platform supporting multiple automotive radar front end and antenna subsystems.

MMWCAS-DSP-EVM is supported by standard mmWave tools and software, including mmWave Studio (MMWAVE-STUDIO), as well as the processor SDK for TDAx ADAS SoCs (PROCESSOR-SDK-TDAX).

For proper evaluation of MMWCAS-DSP-EVM, one other board is required -  the mmWave cascaded imaging radar RF evaluation module (MMWCAS-RF-EVM) (sold separately).

  • High-performance TDA2x device with four radar processing SIMD accelerators (one EVE per AWRx)
