Here is the list of some commonly asked mmWave Studio related questions:
Q1. What is mmWave Studio and why do I need to use it for my mmWave Sensor development?
The mmWaveStudio GUI is designed to characterize and evaluate the TI Radar devices. The mmWave device is configured and controlled from the mmWaveStudio by sending commands to the device over SPI. ADC data is captured using DCA1000 EVM or the TSW1400 EVM board and the data is processed in Matlab and the results are displayed in the GUI.

Q2. What is difference b/w Studio 2.x to 3.x?
mmWave Studio 2.x supports all the first gen of mmWave Sensor (xWR1443/xWR1642/xwr1843/IWR684x) devices.

mmWave Studio 3.x is mainly for 2nd Gen of mmwave sensor (AWR2243) and for cascade setup.

Q3. What are the hardware I need with mmWave Studio?
As mmwave Studio configures mmwave sensor over SPI, so you need to connect mmwave sensor EVM with either DevPack or with DCA1000EVM. For IWR6843ISK it requires three boards connection IWR6843ISK + MMWAVEICBOOST + DCA1000EVM.
Q4. What are the precautions required while using mmWave Studio with mmWave Sensor device?
Q5. How to automate mmWave Studio or device configuration part?
mmWave Studio provide different features which can be used to automate the device configuration or integrate with existing automation infrastructure.
Q6. How can we use SensingEstimator with mmWave Studio?
mmWave Studio v2.1 onward version supports for JSON file format for device configuration. It can import or export the JSON file to GUI.
Sensing Estimator tool generates the JSON file which can be imported to mmWave Studio GUI.
Steps to follow
Q7. How to control mmWave Studio from Matlab?
To control mmWave Studio with Matlab: follow mmWave Studio user guide section named as "Controlling mmWaveStudio from Matlab"
Q8. FTDI driver refused to install or returning warning for expired certificate
Refer this theard- https://e2e.ti.com/support/sensors/f/1023/p/857683/3171986#3171986
Q9. How to process the old captured ADC data using mmWave Studio PostProc?
Refer this theard- https://e2e.ti.com/support/sensors/f/1023/p/831497/3075628#3075628
Q10. Matlab engine could not be started during mmWave Studio startup
Refer this theard- https://e2e.ti.com/support/sensors/f/1023/p/889303/3302757#3302757
Q11. Not getting Monitoring Report for AWR 2243 Cascade
Refer mmWave Studio user guide section named "monitoring", "Time Unit Config" and "async event report format"
Similar thread: https://e2e.ti.com/support/sensors/f/1023/p/897733/3321323#3321323
Q12. mmWave Studio throws run time exception (object reference not set to an instance of an object) at GUI launch.
Q13. How to configure and capture Continuous Wave mode (CW mode) with mmWave Studio using DCA1000?
Q14. DCA1000EVM Issue: Unable to read FTGA version
Refer to this thread- https://e2e.ti.com/support/sensors/f/1023/p/890357/3292095#3292095
Q15. Stream the raw ADC data to PC without storing to a file and process the data on the go
Current DCA1000EVM doesn't support just streaming but only saving to a file on PC. But there are ways to modify the existing application and tool to achieve this task.
DCA1000 control and capture tool source code are provided in the mmwave studio package which can be modified to just stream. And on the PC side customer needs to have an application to read these UDP packets over ethernet port and process the ADC data.
Q16. How to configure advanced frame configuration with mmWave Studio? Any more detail about this advanced feature?
Q17.Can I create my own DCA1000 tool to control it?
Refer this similar thread- https://e2e.ti.com/support/sensors/f/1023/p/857489/3189093#3189093
Q18. How to proceed further when there is a RadaraLinkDLL or an Object reference error?
Sometimes post the windows update in your PC, mmWaveStudio on opening indicates some RadarLinkDLL error/Object reference error.
