The ISP3010 from Insight SiP is a UWB and BLE Combo Module with two integrated antennas and an MCU (microcontroller unit). The UWB part of this module is based on the DecaWave DW1000 single-chip UWB transceiver and the Bluetooth part is based on the nRF52832 Nordic Semiconductor 2.4 GHz wireless System on Chip. This module includes a 32-bit ARM Cortex™ M4 CPU, 512 KB flash memory, 64 kB RAM as well as analog and digital peripherals. It is also equipped with decoupling capacitors, 38.4 MHz crystals for UWB, 32 MHz and 32.768 kHz crystals for BLE, DC-DC converters, RF matching circuits, and two antennas in addition to the wireless Systems on Chip.
This Bluetooth v5.0 ready module is an ideal solution for IoT-based healthcare, sports, consumer and industrial applications that use precision, real-time location systems (RTLS). The ISP3010 is also well-suited for security bubble applications, access control, and indoor positioning. This combo module enables wireless communication with highly precise localization, accurate to within 10 cm over a range of up to 50 meters. For applications with ranges of upwards of 50 meters, the ISP3010 can be used in conjunction with external optimized UWB antennas with the same precision, depending on the antenna configuration.
The ISP3010 is available in a miniaturized LGA package that measures 14 x 14 x 1.5 mm. It features digital interfaces that allow it to be integrated into larger, highly complex positioning solutions.
