NXP's NCJ29D5 is the first of a new generation of Ultra-Wideband (UWB) ICs designed specifically to meet the connectivity and safety needs of the global automotive industry. It enables a broad range of striking new use cases.
The UWB IC enables cars to know exactly where the users are. For the first time, smartphone-based car access offers the same level of convenience as state-of-the-art key fobs. Users can open and start cars, while leaving their phones in their pockets or bags, and enjoy secure remote parking via smartphone. Furthermore, the new UWB IC brings maximum level of protection against car theft through relay attacks.
