EVALKIT SiRad Easy®

Exchangeable Radar Front Ends

Our Radar Evaluation Board SiRad Easy® offers you a complete system for the evaluation of our radar front ends. Its functionality goes well beyond a simple test board. After connecting to a PC, the SiRad Easy® immediately provides you with a functional radar system with a large range of functions (hardware, firmware and PC software).

Hardware
The hardware consists of a carrier board with microprocessor, as well as a baseband board for receiving radar front ends. The standard scope of delivery of the EvalKit SiRad Easy® includes a 120 GHz and a 24 GHz front end and a lens for focusing, which can optionally be plugged onto the baseband board when using the 120 GHz front end.

Additional radar front ends are available on request. The power is supplied via USB, as well as the connection to a PC. Alternatively, the integrated WIFI module can be used for data transmission.

Software
In addition to the hardware, you will receive our web-based user interface for parameterization under Microsoft Windows® . The effects of your modifications on the object recognition are displayed immediately graphically. So you can change settings on the running system and track changes in real time.

Use with your own or third-party software is also possible. The EvalKits firmware provides the following data output modes: radar front end digitized raw data (I and Q channels), FFT data, object recognition detector, and a list of possible detected objects.

Features

  • Browser-based GUI
  • Programmable FMCW parameters
  • USB communication with PC or over WIFI
  • Embedded software for radar signal processing
  • Including target recognition
  • Small size of 100 x 70 x 30 mm³ (46 mm³ with lens)

Scope of Delivery

  • 1 x 120 GHz radar front end
  • 1 x 24 GHz radar front end
  • 1 x controller board
  • 1 x baseband board including WIFI module
  • 1 x lens for 120 GHz
  • Software installation package

EVALKIT SiRad MIMO 24 GHz

24 GHz Multi Input Multi Output Evaluation Board

Silicon Radars EvalKit for MIMO Radar will introduce you to 2D radar positioning, distance and speed measurement, as well as functions for real world testing. It features a complete design environment. Based on a fully embedded system you will get a plug and play MIMO radar after installing the included software package on your PC – an easy and cost-effective way to evaluate your ideas and reduce development time.

Hardware

The MIMO Radar Chip is placed on an interchangeable PCB, the front end board. Beyond the chip it includes the radar antennas. The front end board is controlled by the base band board which is also included. Here the data from the radar chip gets digitized. Underlying these two boards a processing board handles further DSP and the connection of the MIMO evaluation board to your PC. The power is supplied via USB, as well as the connection to a PC. Alternatively, the integrated WIFI module can be used for data transmission.
The current standard evaluation system contains a 24 GHz MIMO front end. Further frontends will be available in the future.

Software

The software provides the user with several ways to visualize and adjust the radar data using a standalone GUI. You can easily change system parameters and immediately see the results in the GUI. Another option is to make use of the comprehensive description of the communication protocol. This enables you to program your own DSP.

You may implement our free API used in the EvalKit in your products to output raw data using the same protocol as the EvalKit. For further Radar DSP in your product we provide open source libraries. For MIMO DSP software modules are available (please ask for terms of a license) or you can simply program your own DSP.

Features

  • Standalone GUI
  • Communication to PC via Ethernet
  • Embedded software for radar signal processing
  • Target recognition
  • Selectable bandwidth: 500 MHz – 3 GHz
  • Max. range resolution: 7.5 cm

Scope of delivery

1 x EvalKit including :

  • 24 GHz MIMO radar front end T2R4_024_020
  • baseband board
  • controller board with Ethernet
  • Software installation package
