Ultra-wideband (UWB) is a short-range, wireless communication protocol that operates through radio waves, enables secure reliable ranging and precision sensing, creating a new dimension of spatial context for wireless devices.
Makerfabs ESP32 UWB module, which is based on IC DecaWave DW1000, has been greatly popular and liked by many Makers. And many customers ask us for the newest DW3000 version, after long-term comparison & testing, now it's available!~
Compares to the DWM1000, the DWM3000 has advantages as below:
1. Most important: Interoperable with Apple U1 chip, that makes it possible to work with the Apple system;
2. Fully aligned with FiRa™ PHY, MAC, and certification development, which makes it more suitable for further applications;
3. Much lower Power consumption, almost 1/3 of DWM1000;
4. Supports UWB channels 5 (6.5 GHz) and 9 (8 GHz), while DWM1000 does not support Channel 9;
Besides, with ESP32 WiFi connection, it can easily report its location to the remote receiver, so the receiver can monitor its latest location.
