Now here's a set of fancy booster packs! It's a fully integrated automotive radar.

Those rectangles on the right with wiggly traces to the IC are the radar antenna. RF magic!

The "CAUTION HOT SURFACE" warning label also promises excitement. Too bad they will cost $299 according to the press release.

Posting in the ARM sub-forum as the radar IC features an R4F ARM core. Though the booster packs probably work with beefier MSP430 LaunchPads too.

Edit: Here's the mmWave landing page. The AWR also has the non-automotive sibling IWR, including similar booster packs.
