Highly Integrated RF Devices
Qorvo DWM3000 RF Module
Mouser Electronics is now shipping Qorvo's new DWM3000 RF modules. This highly integrated device integrates the DW3110 ultra-wideband (UWB) transceiver IC along with power management, ceramic UWB patch antenna and crystal oscillator for easy integration into designs for asset tracking, logistics, navigation, factory automation, and more.
The Qorvo DWM3000 RF module supports IEEE 802.15.4a and IEEE 802.15.4z BPRF modes, with a target positioning accuracy of 10cm. The module supports data transfer rates of 850kbps and 6.8Mbps and provides global UWB support via UWB channel 5 (6.5 GHz) and channel 9 (8 GHz). The module also supports Time of Flight (ToF) and Time Difference of Arrival (TDoA) positioning architectures for high performance in navigation and tracking applications. Housed in a 24-pin 23mm × 13mm × 2.9mm package, this compact RF module is pin and size compatible with Qorvo's DWM1000 to support UWB channel 5 operation.
The DWM3000 module can be easily integrated with a variety of microcontrollers, increasing design flexibility. In addition, Qorvo provides hardware and software support to simplify design and development. Optimized for lower power consumption and longer battery life, the DWM3000 RF module is ideal for healthcare, agriculture, safety and security applications.
