Hi 

I have a question about extracting radar data from my BGT24LTR11 shield and XMC4700 board 

What I want to do is visualize "Target Signal Strength" like how it is in the Radar GUI App on a small screen (e.g. raspberry pi screen - Google Search)

Is there a way I can program the XMC4700 board itself to present this data on the screen when I plug it in, or will I have to use another microcontroller with, for example, MATLAB installed to process then present this data on the screen?

Let me know if this is unclear! 🙂

Thanks

Hi @Taylor70

Please use the C code provided in the C:\IFX_D2GL-HW-SW_V1.0.0\Firmware_Software\Communication Library\ComLib_C_Interface (which can be obtained after installing Distance2GoL package from Infineon Developer Center). Build the D2GL_basics project and run the application d2gl_basics . The application provides the signal strength as an output along with other outputs. 

Please refer to the thread below for more information on modifying the code for your requirement.
