Ultra-Wideband (UWB)

Enter ultra-wide possibilities

NXP’s UWB technology brings secure ranging and precision sensing creating a new dimension of spatial context for wireless devices. Its ability to process contextual information such as the position of the UWB anchor, its movements, and distance to other devices with an unprecedented precision of a few centimeters, enables decision making and management of these devices to take place with high granularity.

UWB initially served as technology for high data rate communication and as such competed with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Having transformed from data transmission to a secure ranging technology, today’s UWB technology offers new opportunities that found driving applications in the IoT.
