Mouser launches Texas Instruments IWR1843 mmWave sensor for industrial use

February 26, 2020 – Mouser Electronics, a distributor of Electronic components focused on introducing new products and offering extensive inventory, is now supplying the IWR1843 industrial radar sensor from Texas Instruments (TI). Built on TI’s low-power 45-nm RFCMOS process, the IWR1843 ultra-wideband TI millimeter-wave (mmWave) sensor offers an extremely small form factor and superior integration for building and factory automation, intelligent robotics, material handling, traffic monitoring Low-power, self-monitoring radar systems with ultra-high accuracy in industrial systems such as people detection/counting.

The TI IWR1843, available from Mouser, is an integrated single-chip frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) radar sensor that operates between the 76 and 81 GHz mmWave spectrum. Thanks to TI’s RFCMOS process, a monolithic system combining three transmit (TX) and four receive (RX) channels with built-in phase-locked loop (PLL) and analog-to-digital converter (ADC) is achieved. This sensor integrates a digital signal processor (DSP) subsystem based on TI’s high-performance C674x DSP for radar signal processing. The sensor also has a built-in self-test (BIST) processor subsystem responsible for radio configuration, control, and calibration, while an onboard user-programmable Arm Cortex-R4F processor performs object tracking and classification, AUTOSAR, and interface control .

Mouser will also supply the TI IWR1843 BoosterPack, an easy-to-use evaluation board that interfaces directly with TI’s LaunchPad development kit. The BoosterPack contains everything needed to develop suitable software for the on-chip C67x DSP core and low-power Arm Cortex-R4F controller, including on-board emulation for programming and debugging, as well as buttons and LEDs for quick integration and easy user integration interface.
