Webinar: the comeback of ultra-wideband

June 3, 2021 | Webinar on demand

How recent innovations inspire new use cases

Ultra-wideband technology has been around for decades. But while its accuracy was never in doubt, its cost-efficiency and especially power consumption left much to be desired.

Thanks to recent circuit and algorithm innovations, those issues are now resolved, enabling the wide adoption of ultra-wideband, also in small battery-powered devices.

Tune into this webinar to find out:

  • What’s the history of ultra-wideband, what are its use cases and why it’s making a comeback (Introduction on behalf of the FiRa Consortium)
  • What are the most recent technical achievements and breakthroughs in ultra-wideband.
  • Which advanced applications improved ultra-wideband will enable.
