Shenzhen, China -（Oct. 28, 2020）- Sunway Communication has joined the international, US headquartered organization FiRa™ Consortium. The organization was founded in August 2019 by HID Global, Bosch, NXP Semiconductors, and Samsung. Since then, several other industry leaders have further solidified the consortium through their memberships. It is the most authoritative organization in the UWB (Ultra-Wideband) industry, driving the industry by setting standards and certifications to ensure an interoperable UWB ecosystem. Organization contributions come from key stakeholders from chipset and device manufacturers to system integrators, service and technology providers, test tool developers, test labs, and academics.
UWB has found new relevance in its present form as a secure fine ranging technology. UWB technology can accurately achieve centimeter scale ranging and positioning. When Apple introduced the iPhone 11 in 2019 with its integrated UWB chip, attention turned to UWB with major vendors aggressively developing products supporting this future mainstream technology. Samsung also recently included UWB in its Galaxy Note20 Ultra and Galaxy Z Fold2 devices, enabling several new use cases.
Sunway Communication has conducted in-depth research in UWB, progressed into product development, and is now actively working with chip manufacturers to develop IoT modules with UWB function. Sunway Communication joining the FiRa Consortium represents not only a formalized industry collaboration, but also the encouragement of further UWB development of Sunway. As a member of FiRa, Sunway will work together with UWB upstream and downstream ecosystem partners to take full advantage of opportunities offered by this technology and leverage its unique advantages, hence further enhancing development speed of the industry.
