Industrial mmWave RADAR – 60GHz AoP Module

The 60GHz Industrial mmWave RADAR on Module (RoM) with Antenna on Package (AoP) SoC from Mistral is a production ready, low cost, ultra-compact, light-weight and easy to use module catering to wide range of industrial applications.

OVERVIEW

Based on Texas Instruments IWR6843AoP, an ultra-high-resolution single chip FMCW RADAR sensor, the AoP RADAR on Module is ideal for low power, self-monitored, ultra-accurate RADAR systems in industrial environment.

The highlight of the module is the IWR6843AoP Chipset, which comes with Integrated Antenna on Package, reducing RF PCB design challenges, product cost and footprint drastically.

The AoP RADAR on Module operates at frequency bands of 60-64GHz. Currently, the module is one of the most powerful and highly integrated in Industrial RADAR market. The module 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 in a compact form factor (23 x 22 mm).

The module is powered via USB in standalone mode and delivers processed point cloud RADAR data (Object’s ID, Range, Angle and Velocity). The AoP RADAR on Module comes with SDK 2.1, along with object detection and people counting sample applications.

Mistral’s AoP RADAR Module comes with robust Mechanical enclosure which facilitates mounting to an end product. As the AoP RADAR on Module is built around IWR6843AoP from Texas Instrument, this assures long lifecycle and support. Mistral adds value by supplying pre-certified AoP RADAR on Modules which helps customer to accelerate time to market, reduces certification risks and seamless product integration.
