UWB Chipset Market - Overview

Ultra Wideband (also known as UWB) is a low power digital wireless technology for transmitting large amounts of digital data over a wide spectrum of frequency bands typically spanning more than 500MHz with very low power for short distances. The low power requirements of UWB means increased battery life of sensors and tags leading to a reduction in overall operational costs. The major players have developed and are continuously developing various innovative and new-to-market flexible embedded UWB antennas designed for seamless integration on plastics and using highly flexible micro-coaxial cable mounting while achieving high performance where space is limited. The UWB chip is a small form factor Ultra Wideband (UWB) antenna with high efficiencies across the pulsed UWB communications operational bands. It is mounted to a PCB via standard SMT reflow process. It enables designers to use only one antenna that covers all common UWB commercial bands, namely bands, 1 through 10 simultaneously. Ultra wideband (UWB) technology once saw considerable use in notebook PCs, it’s seeing a sudden surge in popularity once again thanks to the recent proliferation of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies and solutions. Some of the of the important features of the UWB chipsets are high localization precision (decimeter-level), no interference with other radio communication systems, resistant to multipath signal propagation, resistant to noise and use of low power transceivers and  many more.

Position location & tracking- UWB chip antennas also find use in position location and Tracking applications such as locating patients in case of critical condition, hikers injured in remote areas, tracking cars, and managing a variety of goods in a big shopping mall. UWB chips offers better noise immunity and better accuracy to within a few cm compared to current localization technologies such as Assisted GPS for indoors, Wi-Fi and cellular which are at best able to offer meter level precision. Tethered Indoor positioning UWB systems that measure the angles of arrival of ultra-wideband (UWB) radio signals perform triangulation by using multiple sensors to communicate with a tag device.
