DecaWave DWM1000 is an IEEE802.15.4-2011 UWB compliant wireless transceiver module based on DecaWave’s DW1000 IC.  DWM1000 enables the location of objects in real time location systems (RTLS) to a precision of 10 cm indoors, high data rate communications, up to 6.8 Mb/s, and has excellent communications range of up to 300 m thanks to coherent receiver techniques.

DecaWave Module DWM1000 is optimised for unrivalled indoor precision location and data communications for Real Time Location Systems (RTLS) and Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). It operates across a wide variety of markets, including ePOS and retail, automotive, agriculture, building control and automation, factory automation, healthcare, safety and security, warehousing and logistics and a range of others.
  • IEEE802.15.4-2011 UWB compliant Wireless Transceiver Module based on DecaWaves DW1000 IC
  • Locates objects to a precision of 10cm indoors, even while moving at up to 5m/s
  • High data rate communications Up to 6.8Mb/s achieved in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN)
  • Up to 290m communications range achieved due to coherent receiver techniques (mode dependant)
  • High tag densities supported by short packet durations, up to 11,000 in a 20m radius
  • Highly immune to multipath fading allowing reliable communications in high fading environments
  • Low power consumption allows operation from batteries for long periods (mode dependant)
  • Small physical size allows the implementation of highly cost-effective solutions in RTLS and WSN
  • Integrated antenna allows simple product implementation no RF design required

Key Benefits
  • Simplified design integration of DW1000 IC, antenna, power management and clock control
  • Precise location of tagged objects delivers enterprise efficiency gains and cost reductions
  • Long LOS and NLOS range reduces infrastructure required to deploy systems
  • Low power consumption reduces need to replace batteries and lowers system lifetime costs
  • Standards based solution (IEEE802.15.4-2011), eases proliferation
  • Cost-effective implementation of solutions due to low cost
The DecaWave DWM1000 is optimized for applications in real time location systems and wireless sensor networks across a variety of markets including agriculture, building control and automation, factory automation, healthcare, safety & security, warehousing & logistics and a range of others.
