mmWave Training Series

The mmWave training series is designed for you to learn the fundamentals of FMCW technology and mmWave sensors, and start development quickly. TI's portfolio of mmWave sensors features the AWR automotive radar sensor family and the IWR industrial mmWave sensor family, which are intended to be used for detecting range, velocity and angle of objects.  Learn more about the silicon, tools, software and some of the applications for both mmWave families in the mmWave training series.
