The Qorvo DWM3000 RF module, now available at Mouser, is IEEE 802.15.4a and IEEE 802.15.4z BPRF mode compliant and allows location of objects to a precision of 10cm.
Mouser Electronics Inc. is now stocking the new DWM3000 RF module from Qorvo. The highly integrated device integrates a DW3110 ultra-wideband (UWB) transceiver IC plus power management, ceramic UWB chip antenna, and crystal to simplify incorporation into designs such as asset tracking, logistics, navigation, and factory automation.
The Qorvo DWM3000 RF module is IEEE 802.15.4a and IEEE 802.15.4z BPRF mode compliant and allows location of objects to a precision of 10cm. The device supports data rates of 850kbps and 6.8Mbps, and provides worldwide UWB support with UWB channel 5 (6.5GHz) and channel 9 (8GHz). The module also supports time-of-flight (ToF) and time-difference-of-arrival (TDoA) location schemes, enabling high performance in navigation and tracking applications. The compact RF module is housed in a 24-pin, 23-by-13-by-2.9mm package and is pin and size compatible with Qorvo’s DWM1000 for UWB channel 5 operation.
The DWM3000 module can be easily integrated with a variety of microcontrollers, offering useful design flexibility. Hardware and software support material is available from Qorvo, simplifying design and development. Optimized for low power consumption and exceptional battery life, the DWM3000 RF module is ideal for healthcare, agriculture, and safety and security.
