Product Details

The EV-TINYRAD24G is a radar evaluation module that allows the implementation and testing of radar sensing applications in the 24 GHz industrial, scientific, and medical (ISM) band. The EV-TINYRAD24G uses frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) radio signals and an integrated antenna array in a multiple input multiple output (MIMO) radar scheme. The combined antennas, similar to digital beamforming (DBF), allow the TINYRAD module to detect the distance, speed, and angular position of multiple targets simultaneously. The raw analog-to-digital converter (ADC) data is forwarded by the onboard Blackfin® ADSP-BF706 digital signal processor (DSP) to the PC. The PC evaluation software, with an included graphical user interface (GUI), performs radar signal processing steps to yield radar point clouds that can be visualized as range doppler or range angle plots. The radar algorithms are also available as MATLAB and Python code and enable quick development of user defined, application specific code.
