INSIGHT SIP ISP3080 UWB-BLE miniature RF module provides state-of-the-art integration and miniaturization of RF technologies, using System in Package (SiP) technology. Device also benefits from firm’s SiP’s proprietary, industry-leading ‘antenna-in-package’ techniques. Device incorporates the latest generation of Ultra-Wideband (UWB) technology from Qorvo in the QM31100 UWB chip together with Nordic Semiconductor’s nRF52833 Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) device. The next generation UWB solution delivers improved power consumption compared with previous generations, and interoperability via conformance to the FiRa standard. This allows UWB connections both to other vendors’ FiRa compatible chipsets and UWB equipped mobile phones. Measuring 12 x 12 x 1.5mm, module is a fully integrated device, requiring only power to create a fully functioning UWB and BLE node, with both antennas integrated into the module. Ultra-low power can be achieved by using a combination of Bluetooth and the integrated accelerometer to switch on the UWB transceiver only when necessary.
