This reference design demonstrates the use of the AWR6843AOP, a 60-GHz single-chip mmWave sensor with integrated antenna. The sensor also has an integrated DSP, MCU, and a hardware accelerator for fast Fourier transform (FFT) processing.
The AWR6843AOP sensor can help developers address a wide range of in-cabin sensing applications, including use cases like detection of a child across two rows of a car, seatbelt warning, and intruder detection. The small form factor enables placement of the sensor in locations like overhead console around the rearview mirror, in the headliner, B/C pillars, and seats. It provides flexibility to Tier 1s and carmakers in planning end-use cases.
