DW1000 Radio IC

Decawave's DW1000 is the world's first single-chip wireless transceiver based on Ultra Wideband techniques. This chip enables you to develop cost-effective RTLS solutions with precise indoor and outdoor positioning to within 10 cm.

This chip provides a new approach to real-time location and indoor positioning systems, location-based services, wireless sensor networks and IoT by providing accurate location awareness and communication.

Based on IEEE802.15.4-2011, the DW1000 is also targeting Internet of Things (IoT) applications, thanks to up to 6.8 Mbps communication capability.

FAQ

Is the DW1000 RoHs Compliant?

Yes, the DW1000 meets RoHS 6 requirements as laid down by the 2011/65/EU RoHS2 Directive.

How can I minimize the carrier frequency offset between different DW1000 devices to improve receiver sensitivity?

Minimising the carrier frequency offset between different DW1000 devices improves receiver sensitivity.

 

The DW1000 allows trimming to reduce crystal initial frequency error.

 

For more details see the section on Crystal Oscillator in the DW1000 datasheet and for registers to use see chapter 8.1 IC Calibration – Crystal Oscillator Trim in the IC user manual.

 

DW1000 datasheet and DW1000 user manual can be downloaded from http://www.decawave.com/support

How can I configure the output power of the DW1000 transmitter?

In Software when using DWM1000, DW1000, the output power configuration and control can be altered by using register map register file 0x1E

 

The use of this register is in great detail explained in the IC user manual and Application note APS023 Transmit Power Calibration & Management

 

Both are available on http://www.decawave.com/support.

Is it possible to get quality diagnostics information from the DW1000?

For every received frame the DW1000 receiver provides a set of frame-related diagnostic information.

 

For more information on these diagnostics and other transmit / receive error information see the DW1000 Software API Guide and the DW1000 IC user manual Chapter 4, which describes diagnostic registers.
