Part Number: AWR1843

Tool/software: Code Composer Studio

I want to create a new project in CCS for AWR1843 board. My main objective is to use HWA of AWR1843. I searched through many documents but could not get about creating a fresh project and also resource explorer don't have any demo project for AWR1843. Can anyone help me out with this or can tell me about any document through which I can get some guidance for creating a new project for AWR1843 board? Thanks in advance.

  • Hi,
    In SDK 3.1 mmw demo of AWR1843 use HWA and apart from that you can refer 'drivers\hwa\test' where it provides test application for different HWA features.

    And by default SDK provides makefile for project build, not CCS, you can refer MRR project in TI-Rex to get the CCS project and then migrate that for the different project as required.

    Hello Jitendra,

    Thank you for your reply. I found the MRR project in TI-Rex. However this is also a makefile project only. Can you guide me how can I make CCS project from it?

    "In SDK 3.1 mmw demo of AWR1843 use HWA and apart from that you can refer 'drivers\hwa\test' where it provides test application for different HWA features."

    I did not understand in this part what exactly you want to say. But I will tell you what I did. As per the code given in drivers of HWA, I created a CCS project and in main file I pasted the demo code given of HWA and tried to build but it is getting failed at linking stage of undefined reference symbol. As I am totally new to this automotive sensors of TI and CCS, needed some good reference to start of. Can you give some reference for this as well how to start with CCS project from sketch?

    Hi,

    The link I have provided above has the CCS project in it (src/mrr_dss.projectspec, mrr_mss.projectspec) which you need to import to CCS.

    First, you need to download Automotive Toolbox from TI-Rex.

    Unzip the downloaded file.

    Here are the steps to import to CCS

    - In CCS GUI:  select CCS Menu->Project->Import CCS project

    - Select search-directory

    - browse to MRR project path (C:\ti\mmwave_automotive_toolbox_2_4_7\labs\lab0007_medium_range_radar\src) and hit enter.

    - You should see MSS and DSS project of MRR listed in 'Discovered Projects'

    - Click finish, it will import to CCS workspace and will be listed under project explorer of CCS.

    Hope this will help you to work with CCS and MRR project.

    Now you have MRR CCS project ready, you can modify this project as per your need. To get the reference of HWA you can refer mmw demo (AWR1843) and drivers\hwa\test application. These are provided in makefile in SDK but with the above CCS project reference you can modify that CCS project (cloned version) to include the mmw demo or hwa-test application to CCS project.

    Regards,

    Jitendra
