INTRODUCTION:

millimeter wave RADAR is an extremely valuable sensing technology ideal for detection of objects and providing information on range, velocity and angle of these objects. mmWave RADAR uses a contactless technology which operates in the spectrum between 30GHz and 300GHz.

Since the millimeter wave RADAR uses small wavelengths, it can provide sub-mm range accuracy and is able to penetrate materials such as plastic, drywall, clothing, and is impervious to environmental conditions like rain, fog, dust and snow. Mistral’s range of TI mmWave RADAR solutions are based on Texas Instruments family of mmWave Technology, aka, AWR mmWave sensors for automotive and IWR mmWave sensors for industrial, drones and medical applications.

OVERVIEW:

The Industrial (60GHz) mmWave RADAR on Module (RoM) with Antenna on PCB (AoPCB) from Mistral is an easy to use, compact, light-weight mmWave RADAR providing high functionality for Industrial applications. Based on Texas Instruments IWR6843 ultra high-resolution single chip FMCW RADAR sensor SoC, the TI mmWave RADAR on Module for Industrial applications is ideal for low power, self-calibrating, ultra-accurate RADAR systems in industrial environment.mmWave RADAR, mmWave RADAR Technology, mmWave Technology, TI mmWave RADAR, mmWave RADAR Modules

The Industrial RoM operates at frequency bands of 60-64GHz. The module is one of the most powerful in its category currently in market and comes with advanced features such as FMCW Transceiver, DSP for Advanced Signal Processing, Hardware Accelerator (for FFT, Filtering, and CFAR Processing), ARM R4F Microcontroller, Built-in Calibration and Self-Test (address safety, aging and temperature-based variations). The mmWave RADAR module includes starterware and sample applications for common Industrial RADAR usages.

The Standalone IWR6843 mmWave RADAR module comes with Tapered 3E PCB antenna to cater to different industrial applications. The mmWave RADAR Module supports flexible industrial interfaces like USB, CAN, UART and SPI and can be powered via USB or Header.

Complex signal processing runs within the Module and only the processed Point Cloud RADAR data (Object’s ID, Range, Angle and Velocity) is given out over serial/CAN interfaces. In addition, raw data output is made available via LVDS ports, for debugging and development purpose. The Raw ADC data capture can also be enabled by pairing with TI’s DCA1000EVM real-time data capture adapter via the 60-pin Samtec connector. The Industrial RoM (AoPCB) comes with SDK 3.01, along with object detection and counting sample applications.

The small footprint of the mmWave RADAR module ensure that customers can design custom enclosure to suit their application. Mistral can also build and provide custom IP6x compliant enclosures based on the customer requirements.
