DecaWave's Precise Location and Communication Chip

DecaWave’s ScenSor Technology

DecaWave's ScenSor family of parts for the first time gives developers the ability to locate indoor tagged objects to a precision of 10 cm at a distance of up to 300 m in Line-of-Sight mode and 40 cm in Non-Line-of-Sight mode. DecaWave technology allows both accurate measurement of time and data communications to occur simultaneously, enabling applications across a wide range of vertical markets.
