Mouser Now Shipping Texas Instruments AWR294x FMCW Radar Sensor for Automotive Applications

by gabi

Mouser Electronics, Inc., the industry’s leading New Product Introduction (NPI) distributor with the widest selection of semiconductors and electronic components™, is now shipping the AWR294x frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) radar sensor from Texas Instruments. The AWR294x is a single-chip mmWave sensor and FMCW transceiver (76 GHz to 81 GHz band) with radar data processing elements and peripherals ideal for low-power, self-monitored, ultra-accurate radar systems in automotive in-vehicle networking applications.

Texas Instruments AWR294x radar sensor, available from Mouser, features both TI’s low-power 45 nm radio frequency complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (RFCMOS) and a user-programmable Arm® Cortex®-R5F processor to streamline automotive interface and custom control applications in small form factor with minimal BOM. The AWR294x integrated phase-locked loop (PLL), mixer, voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO), and baseband analog to digital converter (ADC) with digital signal processing (DSP) subsystem (DSS) feature TI’s high-performance C66x DSP for radar signal processing that includes a radio processor subsystem (RSS), responsible for radar front-end control, configuration, and calibration.

The AWR294x hardware accelerator block (HWA 2.0) streamlines common radar processing, saving processing power and resources for custom applications and higher-level algorithms. Simple programming model changes can enable reconfiguration for implementing a multimode sensor. A hardware security module (HSM) with a programmable Arm Cortex-M4 core provides a secure zone of operation.

The AWR2944EVM radar sensor evaluation module is an easy-to-use platform for the demonstration and development of the AWR2944 radar sensor. The AWR2944EVM kit contains everything required to start developing software for the on-chip C66x digital signal processor (DSP), Arm Cortex-R5F controller, and hardware accelerator (HWA 2.0). Also included is onboard emulation for programming and debugging, as well as onboard buttons and LEDs for quick integration of a simple user interface.
