RSP1_Eval Kit for
the RFbeam Doppler
Radar Signal Processor

The RSP1 Evaluation Kit from RFbeam Microwave is a fully operational movement sensor application using advanced signal processing. Using this kit can save both evaluation and development time as well as money. The RSP1 processor offers adaptive noise cancelling and automatic adaptation to different Doppler transceivers.

Key Features

  • Reference design for RFbeam RSP1 processor.
  • Advanced movement detection system.
  • High performance signal processing.
  • More detection range than traditional designs.
  • Less susceptibility to interference.
  • Supports most RFbeam transceivers.
  • Stand alone or host operated modes.
  • Analysing and software command tools included.
  • Saves development time and investment.

With the RSP1_eval the functionality can be influenced by manual settings as well as by more than 30 parameters and commands. The kit can be used as a stand-alone system or as a server of a host computer or microcontroller. Helpful software tools for configuration and signal visualisation are included.

Typical Applications
  • Reference design for own developments based on RSP1 processor.
  • Exploring FFT base Doppler signal processor.
  • Optimising choice of sensor type for different applications.
