UWB Module

Compact UWB transceiver based on NXP’s UWB chipset TrimensionTM SR150 / TrimensionTM SR040. It supports multiple RF configurations with off-board components, allowing a flexible front-end design. It allows a quick integration of UWB capabilities into any design by using them as a component.

MK UWB Anchor SR150: MK UWB Shield 2

Flexible platform to develop customized UWB systems. As the central part of the UWB Kit, it is used as the interface between the UWB module and external devices. It can also be plugged to other development boards thanks to its Arduino-compatible expansion headers.

MK UWB Shield 2 gives support for secure ranging through SE051W.

Antenna Board

Besides the hardware components described, the MK UWB Kit SR150/SR040 also comes with a USB drive containing software and documentation resources.

Software materials

MK UWB SDK

The MK UWB SDK provides all the tools required to start developing UWB use cases for devices based on NXP TrimensionTM UWB chips. It contains several application examples and a ready-to-use MK UWB Library that allows you to focus on the development of the application logic instead of the low-level details of the hardware. It is delivered with out-of-the-box support for NXP QN9090 and Nordic nRF 52840 MCUs and can be easily ported to other platforms.

MK UWB Toolbox Android app

The MK UWB Toolbox Android application allows you to use a mobile phone to run the examples provided in the MK UWB SDK and visualize UWB ranging and AoA data.

MK UWB PC Shell app

The MK UWB PC Shell application allows you to use a Windows PC to run the examples provided in the MK UWB SDK and read UWB ranging and AoA data.

The MK UWB Library is a pre-compiled library that simplifies the development of UWB use cases for TrimensionTM SR040 and Trimension SR150 ICs. By importing the library in your project, you will have access to a simple, but powerful API to:

  • Initialize and deinitialize the UWB and BLE HW
  • Configure UWB ranging session parameters
  • Detect other UWB devices over BLE and start UWB sessions with those devices
  • Receive real-time distance and AoA notifications that can be handled by your application
  • Filter devices based on a whitelist or a blacklist
