6.5 GHz Ultra-Wideband (UWB) Transceiver Module with MCU and Motion Sensor

    Key Features

    • Location accuracy to within 20 cm
    • UWB channel 5 printed PCB antenna (6.5 GHz)
    • 6.8 Mbps data rate IEEE 802.15.4a UWB compliant
    • 3-axis accelerometer motion sensor
    • Optimized for low power sleep mode: < 15 uA
    • Supply voltage: 2.8 to 3.6 V
    • Certified to ETSI, FCC and ISED regulations

    Qorvo's DWM1001 module is based on the DW1000 ultra-wideband (UWB) transceiver IC, which is an IEEE 802.15.4a UWB implementation. It integrates UWB (Ch 5) and Bluetooth® antenna, all RF circuitry, Nordic Semiconductor nRF52832 and a motion sensor.

    Please see DWM1001-DEV for a development board that uses this module.
