From vehicles to the factory, TI mmWave sensors create a smarter world

TI delivers the industry's first and only single-chip, CMOS millimeter-wave sensor in mass production

DALLAS, May 30, 2018 — (PRNewswire) —  One year after introducing the world's most precise millimeter wave (mmWave) single-chip, complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) sensor, Texas Instruments (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) announces the mass production of its highly integrated, ultra-wideband AWR1642 and IWR1642 mmWave sensors. These sensors support frequencies from 76 to 81 GHz and deliver three times more accurate sensing and the smallest footprint at a fraction of the power of competing sensor technologies. Thousands of customers are developing with TI's mmWave sensors to enable innovation in automotive and industrial applications, including vehicle occupancy detection, people counting in buildings, machine and human interaction and more.

TI mmWave sensors advance smarter vehicles
Engineers around the world are using TI mmWave radar sensors, which will first appear in vehicles on the road in late 2018, to enable new advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) applications, which include long-, short- and medium-range radar, that help make the car smarter and safer. Expanding outside of ADAS, engineers are using the automotive-qualified AWR1642 sensor to detect free space and obstacles near doors and trunks, occupancy detection inside the cabin, intruder alert and smarter automated parking.

In addition to providing the industry's only publicly available mass-produced single-chip CMOS sensor, TI also offers a common software development kit (SDK) and design resources to help speed development time. For example, the Vehicle Occupant Detection Reference Design provides a system-level overview and software examples for using the AWR1642 sensor to detect people inside a vehicle.

TI mmWave sensors transform industrial applications
Moving beyond automotive, engineers across a variety of industrial market sectors are rapidly innovating. With new applications for TI's mmWave technology emerging daily, customers are using the sensors to create smarter and more efficient cities, buildings and machines. With its small form factor and high resolution, the IWR1642 sensor is designed to enable a smarter world and is supported by design resources to help engineers quickly bring their smart systems to reality. For example:

Availability and pricing
The following mmWave sensors are available now for mass production through the TI store and authorized distributors:

  • AWR1642 is available for US$45.00 in 1,000-unit quantities
  • IWR1642 is available for US$19.99 in 1,000-unit quantities
