The MR2001_RD is a reference design based on NXP’s MR2001 ('Spirit') chipset. This design builds a high-end 2D Radar transceiver with 6 receiving channels and a low phase noise transmitter. The frequency sweeps are generated using the CPU’s D / A-converter. The target information from the 6 receive antennas is digitized and the high speed digital signal processing performs range and doppler FFTs with an update rate of 10 measurements per second. The high frequency bandwidth allows good distance resolution. Target

This design allows the user to exchange the Antenna and also the use of own Signal Processing hardware. The radar is delivered with an example Matlab software and also the Radar firmware in C-code. With the graphical User Interface all Radar modes can be selected and targets are visualized in 2D Range-Doppler maps or a Range-Angle display.
