Although UWB communication has raised attention in recent years, it is not a new technology, having been introduced in the early 20th century. However, lately UWB has gained importance, pushed by the association of several major mobile phone OEMs and technology providers to set a new standard based on UWB technology. The objective is to provide a seamless and secure user experience such as an enhancement of the NFC use case and its demonstrated benefit for consumer. The expectation to have UWB integrated into a large number of mobile phones also creates opportunities to accelerate the development of IOT solutions featuring other UWB benefits such as an indoor navigation system.
As an example of this accelerating take off, Apple included UWB in its iPhone 11 launch in Sep. 2019, Volkswagen introduced UWB on ID.3 and Golf models in Dec. 2019, and, more recently, Samsung announced its UWB powered Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.

Any additional support from MobileKnowledge in connection to the MK UWB Kit is not included in the price of the kit (ref. MK UWB Kit license agreement #6.2 and #6.3). Any required support shall be subject to a specific and separate agreement ref section “MK Services".
Autonomous, battery-powered UWB device that features NXP's UWB chipset Trimension SR1xxx and a BLE-enabled microcontroller, enabling all kinds of tracking and localization use cases.
Compact UWB transceiver based on NXP’s UWB chipset Trimension SR1xxx. 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 it as a component.
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.
UWB Antenna boards
UWB Module compatible PCBs which allow both the use of alternative UWB antennas and RF frontend, with an easy connection to the UWB Shield.
Two antenna boards are included in the UWB Kit:
- Antenna board + UWB Module: Ready-to-use solution that features two SMD antennas, enabling 2D AoA reading.
- Antenna board with RF connectors: Allows the use of alternative UWB antennas via its dedicated UFL connectors.
Besides the hardware components described, the UWB Kit also comes with a USB drive containing software and documentation resources.
The UWB Android SDK allows enabling and developing UWB applications for Android devices. It allows controlling the UWB Tag through BLE and emulate UWB function of a mobile when connected to the UWB development board.
The Device SDK is the software package that allows enabling and developing applications for devices integrating SR1xxx UWB modules. It is built on top of the NXP SW package and provide access to specific logic and commands to personalize the application.
Demonstrative FW and Android applications built on top of the Mobile and Device SDK
Full set of documents to help you experience the UWB technology using off-the-shelf demo applications included in the kit and use the development platform and libraries to create your own applications.
