Single-chip radar for diverse proximity-sensing applications
The AWR1443 from Texas Instruments millimetre wave (mmWave) sensor is a highly integrated 76–81-GHz radar device that serves as a single-chip radar solution suitable for proximity-sensing automotive radar applications.
The AWR1443 device includes the entire mmWave radio frequency (RF) and analogue baseband signal chain for three transmitters and four receivers, as well as a customer programmable microcontroller (MCU) and hardware accelerator for radar signal processing.
Typical automotive applications include proximity-sensing applications such as door/trunk opener, ground clearance measurement and in-cabin applications. In this white paper, we will cover the device’s high-level architecture and features, and discuss various chirp configuration examples and potential applications.
