Pasternack, a provider of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, unveils the new PEM11000-KIT and PEM11002-KIT radar demonstration kits covering the popular 2.4 GHz industrial, scientific, and medical (ISM) band with no special licensing required. These demonstration kits offer a convenient educational resource to study and experiment with microwave radar fundamental theory and principles making it ideal for classroom instruction and research and development projects.
Pasternack’s new radar demonstration kit is an innovative tool that can be used to study and learn about the principles of microwave radar object detection, motion detection, and determine the range of objects. Experimental radar operating modes can be selected for CW, FMSW, or Doppler. Output waveforms can be set for Single Tone, Frequency Ramp, or Sawtooth. This unique kit contains all digital and RF hardware that features a radar board that includes an integrated speaker and signal indicator to support both audio and visual feedback of received signal strength. A tunable signal filter is also included to allow for design and implementation of customised passive or active filtering.
The radar demonstration unit from Pasternack is command controlled via a downloadable graphical user interface (GUI) for Windows-based computers using the VISA protocol. The connection is made using a simple USB or Bluetooth connection. The PEM11002-KIT model comes complete with a radar board, antennas, cables, and accessories that include a mounting plate, tripod, and USB battery pack. The kit includes a detailed user guide and programming manual as well as a lesson guide.
