Qorvo's DWM3000 module is based on the DW3110 ultra-wideband (UWB) transceiver IC. It is IEEE 802.15.4a and IEEE 802.15.4z BPRF mode compliant and allows location of objects to a precision of 10 cm. The module has worldwide UWB support through its operation on UWB channel 5 (6.5 GHz) and channel 9 (8 GHz).
The DWM3000 module is pin and size compatible with Qorvo's DWM1000. In addition, its channel 5 operation is compatible with DWM1000.
The DWM3000 module is interoperable with the Apple U1 chip (Beta Evaluation).
The DWM3000 is designed to be compliant to the FiRa™ PHY and MAC specifications enabling interoperability with other FiRa™ compliant devices.
