mmWave Radar


mmWave Solution bridges Hardware & Software World together with Simplicity

Joybien Batman BM501 mmWave EVM Kit is a Texas Instruments (TI) IWR6843AOP ASIC based millimeter-wave (mmWave) Kit with Frequency-Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) radar technology capable of operation in the 60GHz to 64GHz band with up to 4 GHz continuous chirp, using 3 Transmission Antennas and 4 Receiving Antennas, for sensing target object’s range, velocity, and angle parameters.

Batman BM501 mmWave EVM Kit consists of an extremely light and compact mmWave Module (with approx. 1/3 of the size of the previous Batman series mmWave Module; along with low-power, self-monitored, ultra-accurate, and lighting condition independent versatilities), a Module Carrier Board that brings user experience and hardware integration flexibilities, and a Pi-Hat-Board for simple and direct connectivity to a Raspberry Pi or NVIDIA Jetson Nano computer; suitable for various applications including: Education, Engineering, Science, Industrial, Medical, and Business & Consumer.


Applications

  • Education’s Practical Radar Introduction
  • Engineering & Science’s Motion Detection, Displacement, etc.
  • Industrial sensor for Displacement & Safe Guard, Factory Automation, Robotics, etc.
  • Building Automation sensor for Occupancy Detection, Proximity & Position sensing, People Counting, People Density, Security and Surveillance,
