Unlike any other wireless technology, ultra wideband is a quick, secure, and low power radio protocol used to pinpoint a location.
A new type of impulse-radio ultra band (IR-UWB) radar called quadrature demodulation can increase the resolution of distance measurements.
The global impulse – radio ultra – wideband (IR – UWB) transmitter chip market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
A new impulse-radio ultra-wideband (IR-UWB) transmitter chip was introduced at the International Solid-State Circuits Conference by Imec, a global leader in nanoelectronics and digital technologies research and invention.
The new IR-UWB chip from imec has a surface area of just 0.155mm2 and is constructed in 28 nm CMOS. For in-body and short-range applications, it supports data transfer speeds up to 1.66Gb/s. Compared to what is achievable with the existing IEEE 802.15.4z standard, this is more than 50 times faster.
Despite being able to support extremely high bitrates, the transmitter only uses about 10 milliwatts of electricity (mW). And with an energy efficiency of 5.8 pJ/b, it outperforms Wi-Fi by at least an order of magnitude.
The leading supplier of automotive semiconductors in the world, NXP Semiconductors N.V., announced the addition of a new automotive UWB IC to its UWB product line. In comparison to other wireless technologies like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS, UWB offers superior real-time localization capabilities that are accurate, secure, and robust.
In order for cars to accurately locate their occupants, the technology is intended to provide spatial awareness to UWB-equipped vehicles, mobile phones, and other smart gadgets. For the first time, modern key fobs and smartphone-based car access offer the same level of convenience. Users can use their smartphones for secure remote parking when opening and starting their vehicles while leaving their phones in their pockets or bags. Additionally, the new UWB IC offers the highest level of defense against relay assaults used to steal cars.
