Evaluate UWB interoperability with Apple® and Android™ mobile devices

Product brief

The first evaluation kit offering UWB interoperability against Apple® and AndroidTM mobile devices.

Kick-start the design of your innovative applications by leveraging on the sample iOS and Android applications developed by MobileKnowledge and unleash UWB ability to create more precise, spatial-aware application experiences.

UWB technology is rapidly expanding into the IoT ecosystem.

Smartphones play a significant role in driving the adoption of UWB in the IoT ecosystem as they make the technology intuitive and accessible to a broad user base.

Get ahead of this trend and start evaluating how NXP's UWB TrimensionTM technology interacts with UWB-enabled Apple® and AndroidTM devices.

With the MK UWB Kit Mobile edition 2.0:

  • Experience how to establish a UWB ranging session between a UWB-enabled Apple® or AndroidTM smartphone and a UWB anchor or UWB tag based on NXP's TrimensionTM UWB IoT ICs
  • Leverage on the background operation mode for mobile devices to build hands-free interactions with nearby smart objects.
  • Obtain the MK UWB Connect application source code for Apple® or AndroidTM devices as well as the reference source code for SR150 UWB Anchor and SR040 UWB Tag software to interoperate against mobile devices.
  • Receive exclusive support from MobileKnowledge to accelerate the evaluation and development of UWB technology-based solutions.

UWB Tag SR040

Autonomous, battery-powered UWB device that features NXP's UWB chipset TrimensionTM SR040 and a BLE-enabled microcontroller, enabling all kinds of tracking and localization use cases.

MK UWB SR150 Anchor 3D

Flexible platform to develop customized UWB systems. Arduino-compatible expansion headers and features NXP's UWB chipset TrimensionTM SR150.

Supporting 3D positioning.

Reference Software

MK UWB Connect application

The MK UWB Connect application is available in Appstore and Play Store and is delivered as source code as part of the kit. These applications will be continuously maintained and improved by MobileKnowledge.

The iOS application implements the Nearby Interaction Protocol supporting background operation for hands-free spatial awareness experiences.

The Android application implements MobileKnowledge Out of Band protocol through Bluetooth LE for discovery and initialization of UWB ranging session through Android UWB Jetpack libraries.
