Part Number: IWR1443
I just know mmWave from MVP forum today. It is pretty interesting.
I want to design a product for monitoring new born babies, to check if the baby is breathing normally while the parents are sleeping. One of the key feature of mmWave is very important for this application: the used frequency will penetrate clothing. So, I think IWR1443 should be suitable for this application.
But there is an important consideration: Is the emitted EM wave harmful to human body, especially new born baby? Does anyone know this?
Robert Chensimple is beautiful.

Hi Robert, The IEEE Standard C95.1-2005 specifies the safety levels with respect to human exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic fields from 3 kHz to 300 GHz. For the general public, the RMS power density limit in the 30–100 GHz range is 10 W/m2, or 1 mW/cm2. Please refer to the full IEEE standard as it specifies how to measure this power (averaging time...). You also need to account for the duty cycle of your mmWave sensor. The IWR1443 has a maximum power of 12 dBm (16 mW) for 1 TX antenna, which translates to 0.16 mW of average power at a duty cycle of 1%. Thanks, François.
