Developer Kits


IMST offers Developer Kits for all three 24 GHz FMCW SENTIRETM Radar modules. The first one (DK-sR-1200e) comes with integrated patch antennas while the second module (DK-sR-1030e) is equipped with three coaxial connectors for external antennas. There are two receive channels/antennas with I/Q information and one transmit channel/antenna. The third module (DK-sR-14MPc) has 1 transmit and 4 receive channels and applies the Monopulse method. All modules can operate in Doppler or FMCW mode for measureing of distances, angles and velocity of targets. The little “e” at the end of the product name stands for Ethernet with Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) while “c” stands for CAN-bus.

Each Developer Kit comprises a radar module and the PC software SenToolTM with graphical user interface. The software allows parameter settings and visualization of measured radar data. Typical parameters are detection range, resolution, frequency bandwidth, output power, radar signal shape and duration.

IMST’s 24 GHz FMCW SENTIRETM Radar is a miniaturized, ultralight radar unit. This system compromises a manifold configurable RF fronted with digital signal processing and programmable interface. The controller allows flexible generation of radar signals and provides enough computation power to perform signal processing for target detection or even complex tracking algorithms. The radar digital interface allows the user to define all radar settings and to receive all measured data. These data can be calculated properties from single targets or complex time- or frequency domain curves for user-defined evaluations.

An expert mode allows the experienced user or researcher to test the radar sensor beyond the ISM band limitations by increasing the frequency bandwidth and the RF output power.
