Stockholm, Sweden – (June 30, 2022) - Sunway Communication, a leading supplier of RF connectivity related, and other performance-critical components and modules, today announces that it expands its collaboration with NXP® Semiconductors in the area of UWB solutions for IoT. In past years, Sunway and NXP have co-operated with a primary focus on the China market. Now, the companies announce the global focus of their collaboration as Sunway supports customers worldwide for UWB implementations, through Sunway Sweden and US offices.
The SWM1000SR040 and SWM1000SR150 UWB modules are optimized for FiRa Consortium use cases and other IoT applications. While the SR040 module is suitable for coin cell battery-powered, low power IoT devices such as UWB trackers and tags, the SR150 module is designed for Real-Time Positioning Systems (RTLS) and seamless access control, as well as smart home devices. Providing relative positions in 3 dimensions with high accuracy through ToF and AoA measurements creates spatial awareness of people and objects. Moreover, the NXP TrimensionTM SR150 and SR040 are interoperable with the Apple U1 chipset (on firmware v.3.14.0), thus supporting all the recently announced Nearby Interaction features. Additionally, the development kit UWB EVK-2 allows developers to quick-start their design. A newly developed tag platform as well as standard UWB antennas for easy module connection add to the current product range.
With several major smartphone and automotive OEMs having already brought UWB to their flagship offerings, there is a high demand for solutions to accelerate developments for the IoT market. Sunway Communication, already well-known for its RF design and antenna competencies, leveraged this know-how to build best-in-class modules, resulting in ability to offer unrivaled Angle-of-Arrival performance. This provides great possibilities for developers in the IoT domain, making use cases such as item tracking, indoor positioning and access control a reality.
“We are very proud of the development with NXP, the products we have launched and the worldwide partner status we now enjoy”, said Robert Berg, Vice President of Sunway Communication. “Based on ongoing customer engagements, we know that we have a solution that offers excellent performance helping our customers to differentiate their products.”
Peter Pirc, Senior Marketing Manager for UWB Mobile & IoT Solutions, at NXP Semiconductors commented: “Sunway Communication’s modules and antennas have demonstrated excellent performance, helping to drive our Trimension portfolio into an increasing amount of new IoT applications and making them an excellent addition to our worldwide partner network. As FiRa Consortium members, NXP and Sunway Communication also unite in the vision to contribute to creation of a holistic, interoperable UWB ecosystem that allows for seamless user experiences.”
