mmWave diagnostic and monitoring reference design

TIDEP-01025

Design files

Overview

This reference design showcases the inbuilt autonomous monitoring functionality in mmWave radar sensors that enhances system efficiency by minimizing the processing load on the host. The design uses a safety diagnostic library (SDL) to run diagnostic tests on programmable digital cores, peripherals and memories. The reference design also configures and enables RF/analog monitor features of different hardware components. By assisting the user to implement their ASIL-B/SIL2-compliant products with various safety resources, this design lessens overall development time and time to market.

Features
  • Demonstrates usage of inbuilt diagnostic and monitor features of mmWave radar sensors to improve system performance and robustness
  • Use of multiple safety resources to build ASIL-B/SIL2 mmWave sensors across different devices and applications to make system implementation efficient
  • Based on proven evaluation module (EVM) hardware designs; enables quick time to market
