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. The module integrates the DW1000, antenna, balun, and crystal. This module is ideal for prototyping and low- to mid-volume applications as it reduces development time and, thereby, the need for an in-house RF expert.
DecaWave Module DWM1000 is optimized 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.
