Radar ModulesSnow ScienceThe Future of Applied Sensing
If you are interested in running the Health Firmware, please follow the firmware update guide so you have the correct firmware on the unit. By default, they come with the MATLAB development firmware.
Once you have the correct firmware, the windows laptop should automatically recognize the device but if not follow the USB driver installation help.
Our SLMX4 radar modules don't work in a native bistatic radar configuration. Each module has a Tx/Rx antenna pair, in a monostatic fashion. However, they could be networked over WiFi and be set up monostatically around an area, to provide a pseudo-bistatic setup.
Furthermore, multiple X4 chips can be synced to provide a MIMO virtual array. We are currently testing prototypes to leverage this capability.
The only way to set up a true bistatic scenario is to separate the antennas with a long RF cable via our old Onza development kits, as the SLMX4 currently does not support connectorized antennas.
Radar Detection And Ranging
Radar was initially developed in the early 1900’s as a technique to measure distance, direction, and speed of objects by transmitting pulses of high-frequency electromagnetic waves. These electromagnetic waves reflect off the object and back to its source. The time it takes the electromagnetic wave to return to its source is translated into a distance to the object.
