DecaWave's DW1000 Single Chip IEEE802.15.4-2011 UWB Wireless Transceiver with 10 cm precision IC provides a new approach to Real Time Location and Indoor Positioning Systems, Location Based Services, Wireless Sensor Networks and the Internet of Things by providing accurate location awareness and communication.
  • A single chip, IEEE802.15.4-2011 UWB compliant, Wireless Transceiver based on Ultra Wideband techniques
  • Allows the location of objects in Real Time Location Systems (RTLS) to a precision of 10cm indoors, even while moving at up to 5m/s
  • Allows high data rate communications, up to 6.8Mb/s, in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN)
  • Excellent communications range of up to 290m thanks to coherent receiver techniques*
  • Short packet durations support high tag densities – up to 11,000 in a 20m radius
  • Highly immune to multipath fading – allows reliable communications in high fading environments
  • Low power consumption allows operation from batteries for long periods depending on mode
  • Very low silicon area allows the implementation of highly cost-effective solutions in RTLS and WSN
DW1000 ScenSor (Seek Control Execute Network Sense Obey Respond)
Key Benefits
  • Very precise location of tagged objects delivers enterprise efficiency gains and cost reductions
  • Long LOS and NLOS range reduces amount of infrastructure required to deploy systems
  • Long LOS and NLOS range reduces amount of infrastructure required to deploy systems
  • Low power consumption reduces the need to replace batteries and lowers system lifetime costs
  • Standards based solution (IEEE802.15.4-2011), eases proliferation
