Usage of MMWAVEICBOOST With Starter Kit
The MMWAVEICBOOST board is required with the starter kit for the following use cases:
• PC connection will be enabled for communicating with mmWave front end chip
• Connecting to mmWave Studio (mmWave Studio is a tool that provides capability to configure the
MMWAVEICBOOST front end from the PC). This tool is available in the DFP package.
• The DCA1000 EVM allows users to capture the raw ADC data over the high-speed debug interface
and post process it in the PC.
• Getting DSP trace data through the MIPI 60-pin interface
• DMM interface can be used
2.4.1
PC Connection
Connectivity is provided through the micro USB connector over the onboard FTDI and XDS110 ICs. This
provides the following interfaces to the PC:
• XDS110 provides the default UART interface for application/user port and auxiliary data port
• FTDI Port A -> SPI interface for radar device control using mmWave Studio
• FTDI Port B-> I2C interface and host INTR signal
• FTDI Port C -> BSS Logger port (for internal debug only), NRST control, and Nerror signals
• FTDI Port D -> DSS Logger port, SOP line control signals, and GPIO signals
When the USB is connected for the first time to the PC, Windows® maybe not be able to recognize the
device. This is indicated in the device manager with yellow exclamation marks as shown in Figure 8.

install the devices:
Download the latest FTDI and XDS110 drivers available in the mmWave SDK package.
Right click on these devices.
Update the drivers by pointing to the location where the FTDI and XDS110 drivers were downloaded.
This must be done for all eight COM ports. When eight COM ports are installed, the device manager
recognizes these devices and indicates the COM port numbers, as shown in Figure 9.
Figure 9. COM Ports After the Driver Installation
2.4.2
Flashing the QSPI Flash for the Module Board
For the flashing, only one USB cable (XDS110 USB) needs to be connected to the PC. And, the Uniflash
utility needs to be used to flash the flashing purpose.
2.4.3
MMWAVEICBOOST and Starter Kit Connections for Standalone testing
A compatible starter kit can be stacked on top of the MMWAVEICBOOST board using the two 60-pin HD
connectors and 12 nuts, four washers and four M3 screws (for improving the thermal performance).
Connectors have a pin number marking shown in Figure 18 to prevent the misalignment of the pins or
reverse connection. Figure 10 shows the integration of MMWAVEICBOOST and starter kit. The starter kit
is powered by the 3.3 V supply. One micro USB cable to XDS110(J11) for running Out Of Box demo and
one micro USB cable to FTDI(J12) for initiating controls from mmWave Studio. Digital controls from the
MMWAVEICBOOST will be initiated after the FTDI and XDS110 ports are detected in the device manager
shown in Figure 9. The configuration of the MMWAVEICBOOST and starter kit are based on the analog
mux settings and mux controls that are received from dip switch (S1). To mux all the digital controls to
FTDI/XDS110 connector, the mux control switch positions should be set to ON/OFF as shown in Table 1.

Interfacing With DCA1000EVM
The high-speed LVDS data from the radar device can be captured using the DCA1000 EVM. For more
information about the DCA1000 EVM and ordering details, see the Real Time Data Capture Adapter and
the DCA1000EVM Data Capture Card User's Guide. mmWave studio tool is required for configuration. For
the installation of the tool, see the mmWave Studio User's Guide.pdf that is included in the DFP package.
2.5.1
mmWave Studio Interface
To control the radar device from mmWave Studio, both the starter kit and the MMWAVEICBOOST must
be powered and connected to the PC using the micro USB cable. The UART used to download the
firmware is accessed from the XDS110 device on the MMWAVEICBOOST. The SPI interface used to
control the radar device, SOP controls, and nRST control is performed from the FTDI chip on the
MMWAVEICBOOST. For details on the usage of mmWave Studio, see the Radar Studio User's Guide that
is part of the DFP package.
2.5.2
MMWAVEICBOOST and Starter Kit Configuration
The configuration of the MMWAVEICBOOST and starter kit are the same as mentioned in Section 2.4
except the analog mux settings and the mux controls will be received from 60-pin connector (J10) instead
of FTDI. To mux all the digital controls to 60-pin connector, the mux control switch positions should be set

Connectors
There are several types of connectors used in the MMWAVEICBOOST board, which are mentioned
below.
2.7.1
20-Pin Launchpad/ Booster Pack Connectors (J5, J6)
The MMWAVEICBOOST has the standard Launchpad connectors (J5 and J6) that enable it to be directly
connected to all TI MCU Launchpad's pinout as shown in Figure 17. While connecting the
MMWAVEICBOOST to other Launchpad’s, ensure the pin-1 orientation is correct by matching the 3V3
and 5-V signal marking on the boards. Figure 17 shows two 20-pin connectors.
Table 4 and Table 5 provides the connector pin information.

(1) Indicates that all the powers are stable in the standard LP/BP boards are stable, which enables/disables the power of FTDI and
XDS110 interfaces. A HIGH on the PGOOD signal (3.3 V) indicates the supply is stable. The I/Os of the front-end chip are not
safe to operate by the XDS110/FTDI before this I/O supply is stable to avoid leakage current into the I/Os.
(2) Controls the PMIC enable for starter kits. The MCU can use this to shut down the PMIC and xWR device during the periods it
does not use the xWR device and save power. The power up of the PMIC takes approximately 5 ms once the enable signal is
made high.
2.7.2
60-Pin High Density (HD) Connector(J4 and J17)
The 60-pin HD connector shown in Figure 18 provides the high-speed CSI/LVDS data, controls signals
(SPI, UART, I2C, NRST, NERR and SOPs) and JTAG debug signals from the starter kit. The Trace and
DMM interface lines are also available through this connectors.

IWR6843ISK Antenna
The IWR6843ISK includes onboard-etched long range antennas for the four receivers and three
transmitters. Figure 40 shows the PCB antennas.
Figure 40. PCB Antennas
Figure 41 through Figure 43 shows the antenna radiation pattern with regard to azimuth. Figure 44
through Figure 46 shows the antenna radiation pattern with regard to elevation for TX1, TX2 and TX3.
All of the measurements were done with a Tx and Rx combination together. Hence, for the -6dB beam
width, you need to see -12db (Tx (-6dB) + Rx(-6dB)) number.
