Texas Instruments IWR6x mmWave sensors for industrial radar systems

Friday, 28 August, 2020 | Supplied by: Mouser Electronics



The IWR6x mmWave sensors, from Texas Instruments (TI), allow engineers to integrate mmWave technology into a broad range of factory automation, radar, robotics and building automation designs.

The integrated single-chip frequency-modulated continuous-wave (FMCW) radar sensors are built on TI’s 45 nm RFCMOS process. They offer ultrahigh-resolution sensing and can detect objects, humans and subtle motions, including breathing and typing.

The 60–64 GHz sensors offer up to 4 GHz of ultrawide bandwidth, claimed to detect objects up to 16 times more accurately than 24 GHz narrowband solutions. The system incorporates a C674x DSP for advanced signal processing.

The sensors feature application-specific algorithms, scalable software and several reference designs, allowing developers to quickly begin creating high-performance sensor solutions. They are optimised for use in industrial settings, supporting key applications such as motion detection, robotics, people counting, vital sign monitoring and safety guarding. The sensors are also suitable for low-power, self-monitored industrial radar systems.
