It operates in the license-free 60 to 64GHz band and comes with an DSP, FFT accelerator and MCU on-chip and the component includes antenna-on-package. The package includes four transmitters and three receivers.

Users can use the sensor for a range of robotics, factory automation and building automation designs. The chip provides up 4GHz of data bandwidth. Typical applications include: people counting, motion detection, robotics, safety guards, vital sign monitoring, and more and the technology operates through materials such as glass, plastic and “dry-wall” or plasterboard.

TI also supplies application-specific algorithms, and multiple reference designs.

Pre-production IWR6843 devices will be available from November 12. The IWR6843 modular development platform is available for US $324.
