DecaWave ScenSor

ScenSor is a family of semiconductor radio communications products. Our first product DW1000 is a complete, single chip CMOS Ultra-Wideband IC based on the IEEE 802.15.4-2011 standard, which can enable tagged objects to be located both indoors and out to within 10 cm.

The resulting silicon has a very wide range of applications for both Real Time Location Systems (RTLS) and Ultra Low Power Wireless Transceivers, including manufacturing, ePOS and retail, building automation, automotive, healthcare, lighting, security, transport, inventory, supply chain management and other industries.

Advantages of DecaWave’s ScenSor

Location Precision

Ranging precision of 10 cm vs. 3 – 5 m for Wi-Fi RTLS

Tag/Node density

Data Rate of 6.8 Mbps vs. 250 kbps for other IEEE802.15.4; 1 M for Wi-Fi RTLS

Tag/Node Battery Life

Very low power consumption

Infrastructure Cost

40 m Non Line Of Sight (through walls), and up to 300 m Line Of Sight, thus reducing infrastructure costs of deployment

Multipath Interference

Highly immune to multipath, no issue with operation in dynamic environment.

Tag/Node Cost

Competitively priced for affordable systems

Immunity to Interference

Spectral crowding – ScenSor uses regulatory and standard-accepted frequencies outside the crowded 2.4 GHz band (WiFi, Bluetooth, ZigBee)
