Getting started



IGEP RADAR SENSOR ORION is a K-Band Radar Sensor Technology Demonstrators. It is designed for using World-Wide 24GHz ISM Band.

This boards is compatible with many Processor Boards to Control and Signal Processing.
Complete Option is compatible with IGEPv2, IGEP COM MODULE, BEAGLEBOARD and GUMSTIX OVERO.

The processor boards can carry the digital processing and implement the communication with the user system.

There is an included demo software with open source basic functions in order that users can easily build their own specific application. It is also included an easy way to configure and collect data from the radar.


Identify the different parts of the radar sensor ORION

It is very important you are able to identify the basic parts of the radar in order to avoid wrong set ups of measurement.

The next picture show which is the 24GHz transmitting antenna, the receiving antenna, the transmitter (TX) and the receiver (RX):

JL1 gives you access to the VCO signal

JD1 is the modulation signal

JD2 is the synchronism (you can use this signal to visualise the others on an oscilloscope)

JF1 is the IF signal

JC2 is the expansion connector for IGEPv2

JC4 and JC3 are the expansion connectors for IGEP COM MODULE

JP1 is the power connector
