November 2, 2020 – Mouser Electronics, an authorized global distributor of Electronic components focused on introducing new products, is pleased to announce that Mouser Electronics is now shipping Qorvo’s full line of Ultra Wideband (UWB) technology products (formerly Decawave) . Qorvo’s UWB portfolio utilizes advanced pulsed radio UWB technology to perform centimeter-accurate distance/position measurements, as well as provide low power, low power consumption for automotive, mobile, industrial and consumer Internet of Things (IoT) applications. Delayed secure data communication.
Qorvo is a renowned provider of innovative RF solutions that help connect the world. The company recently acquired Decawave, a provider of advanced UWB technology that specializes in UWB solutions for mobile, automotive and IoT applications. Decawave UWB products have successfully penetrated more than 40 vertical markets, including industrial automation, logistics, hospitals, automotive, home robotics, connected home and sports. Decawave merged into Qorvo to become the Ultra Wideband Business Unit (UWBU) of Qorvo Mobile Products.
The Qorvo UWB technology product line offered by Mouser includes the DW1000 radio IC and two modules featuring the DW1000 IC. The DW1000 UWB transceiver IC is the world’s first single-chip wireless transceiver based on UWB technology. The IC helps engineers develop cost-effective real-time location system (RTLS) solutions with indoor and outdoor positioning accuracy to within 10 cm, IEEE802.15.4-2011 compliant, and supports data rates up to 6.8 Mbps.
The DWM1000 module integrates the DW1000 IC, antenna, and power management and clock components, simplifying design integration with a variety of microcontrollers. The module supports time-of-flight (ToF) and time-difference-of-arrival (TDoA) positioning architectures for RTLS and wireless networking applications for applications such as agriculture, building control, factory automation, and healthcare.
Qorvo’s DWM1001 module combines the DW1000 IC, Nordic semiconductor nRF52832 system-on-chip (SoC), 3-axis accelerometer and integrated antenna to create a solution that minimizes RF and hardware design requirements. Mouser also offers the DWM1001-DEV for development, which contains the DWM1001 module, battery connector and charging circuitry, LEDs, buttons, Raspberry Pi-compatible connections, and a USB connector. In addition, the board also comes with a J-Link OB, which provides additional debugging and virtual COM port functionality.
