Use imec’s high-precision and low-power UWB positioning and tracking technology to design your next-generation IoT products.
In many IoT applications, it’s crucial that devices are spatially aware: we need to know their position and movement – in a two- or three-dimensional space.
Although several technologies are available for this, none beats ultra-wide band (UWB) when it comes to:
Ultra-wide band technology has been around for a long time. However, there is now a surge of interest in UWB because of its ideal match with advanced applications such as:
If you want to develop a product or service that relies on compact and ultra-low power UWB positioning and tracking, you’re welcome to build on imec’s ultra-wide band technology IP and support.
As a leading R&D hub in nano- and digital technology, imec has a track record of more than fifteen years in UWB technology. We participate in various UWB standardization bodies and industry consortia, such as the, IEEE, CCC, ETSI and FCC.
Imec builds its ultra-wide band technology on a standard CMOS platform. This results in UWB chips that can be cost-effectively mass-produced and which you can easily integrate with other chip components.
Additionally, our UWB impulse radio (IR) technology excels because of a power consumption that is ten times lower than the state of the art. Our UWB positioning and tracking algorithms achieve cm-accuracy in challenging environments.
Do you want to speed up the integration of advanced ultra-wide band technology in your product or service? Then imec is happy to support you in three ways:
Our ultra-wide band technology portfolio contains a wide range of hardware and software IP, such as:
