EVK1000 Evaluation Kit

The EVK1000 is Decawave's Two-Way Ranging Evaluation Kit made of 2 EVB1000 evaluation boards, each incorporating the DW1000 IEEE802.15.4-2011 UWB-compliant wireless transceiver IC and STM32F105 ARM Cortex M3.

Kit Includes:

  • 2 boards with DW1000 chip, MCU and antennae
  • Two-way ranging software (source code)
  • PC application

What You Can Do With this Kit:

  • Evaluate range, accuracy, precision, multi-path/blocking immunity using TWR
  • Tweak RF parameters (channel, preamble, data rate)
  • Log channel impulse response data
  • Modify example software, re-flash the boards

FAQ

Is it possible to access the raw positioning data from EVB1000 (TREK1000 or EVK1000)

Both TREK1000 and EVK1000 applications output ranging and some debug information over the virtual COM port.

 

For more information see Decaranging Source Code Guide (EVK1000) and DecaRangeRTLS ARM Source Code Guide (TREK1000)

Can the USB port be used to program the ARM microprocessor on the EVB1000?

The EVB1000 does not support the reprogramming of the on board STM32F microcontroller via USB. The EVB1000 has a 20-pin JTAG header which should be used to do this.

Is it possible to output the distance measured by the EVB1000 via UART or SPI?

The EVB1000 has no physical UART interface. EVB1000 outputs the results of two-way ranging over the USB port and also to the LCD display. The on board STM32F microcontroller does have an UART peripheral. To enable UART functionality on the EVB1000, both software and hardware changes are required to use this peripheral and output data on it. Please contact DecaWave for details of how to do this.

 

Moreover the DW1000 SPI interface is accessible through the J6 connector. For further information see EVK1000 user manual for use of the external SPI. Also on board USBtoSPI application can be used to read/write data to DW1000. Please see the DecaRanging Source Code Guide on using USB VC protocol to write and read DW1000 SPI data.

For which channel is the EVK1000 calibrated?

EVK1000 boards are calibrated for the default use cases of channel 2 and 5 to have output powers of just below -41.3 dBm/MHz at the SMA connection point.
