mmWave Studio is designed to characterize and evaluate TI mmWave sensors. mmWave sensors are configured and controlled from mmWave Studio by sending commands to the devices over SPI. Analog-to-digital converter (ADC) data is captured using the DCA1000EVM board, processed in MATLAB®, and results are displayed in the GUI.
mmWave Studio is a collection of tools that enhance the evaluation of TI mmWave sensors. These easy-to-use tools provide capability to evaluate and prototype chirp designs and experiment with the the out-of-the-box demo. The tools are hosted directly on TI.com and enable interaction with the mmWave sensor evaluation modules. The tools can also be saved for offline use.
