Kit purchase includes software distribution and single-use licensing for TI Vision SDK and D3 Engineering advanced vision software framework. Starting at $549 USD.


Radar Starter Kit
High Performance 76-81GHz Radar
TI mmWave Radar

This benchtop Starter Kit allows for fast evaluation of D3 Radar Modules with Texas Instruments mmWave radar technology. Features include small form factor module mounted on a baseboard, easy interface to a PC or embedded platform for test and evaluation, application software, and demonstration programs for common automotive radar applications.


DesignCore® Development Kits

Based on the Texas Instruments TDAx line of automotive vision processors, this rugged, compact design supports multiple simultaneous vision sensors, radar sensors, and a host of peripherals including displays, CAN, USB, and Gigabit Ethernet.

All Rugged Vision Platform (RVP) Development Kits accept camera inputs using the FPD-Link III high-bandwidth serial camera interface.

Some RVP models include a Vision Acceleration Pac (EVE) that offloads the vision analytics functionality from the processor while also reducing the power footprint. The Vision Acceleration Pac (EVE) is optimized for vision processing with a 32-bit RISC core for efficient program execution and a vector coprocessor for specialized vision processing.
