Texas Instruments introduces millimeter wave (mmWave) single-chip complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) portfolio which includes five solutions across two families of 76 to 81 GHz sensors with a complete end-to-end development platform. The AWR1x and IWR1x sensor portfolio delivers up to three times more accurate sensing than current mmWave solutions on the market. The sensor modules combinatios sophisticated analog design techniques paired with digital signal processing enables designers to implement contactless sensing in their systems.

Designers can select the best processing power for their needs with a fully integrated CMOS single-chip harnessing a best-in-class digital signal processor (DSP) and microcontroller (MCU) or a single-chip with just an MCU or DSP. A broad portfolio of five devices allows developers to select the right solution for their design needs, all while reducing power consumption and board space by 50 percent. The AWR1x and IWR1x sensors can sense accurately through plastic, dry wall, clothing, glass and many other materials, and through environmental conditions such as lighting, rain, dust, fog or frost. With a few on developing, the mmWave software development kit includes sample algorithms and software libraries for RF designs through less than 20 simple application programming interfaces (APIs).
