TDC7200EVM: Which one is better for LED(or laser) ToF sensing through air between TDC7200 and TDC7200EVM?

Part Number: TDC7200EVM
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: TIDA-01187, TDC7200, , TIDA-00663


 I am trying to implement Lidar system with fabricated emitter(LED or laser) and receiver(photodiode).

Because I am not a circuit guy, PCB design is pretty challenging to me; therefore, TIDA-01187 is somewhat hard to me.

So, here are two choices

1. using TDC7200, self-soldering and connecting with Arduino and my fabricated receiver and emitter on a breadboard.

2. using TDC7200EVM, connecting to MSP430, and wiring the SMA connector with my fabricated receiver and emitter on a breadboard.

Which one is more desirable for my project? If any other options extist, please let me know as well. Thank you very much.
