The DecaWave DW1000 IC provides a new approach to Real Time Location and Indoor Positioning Systems, Location Based Services, Wireless Sensor Networks and the Internet of Things by providing accurate location awareness and communication.

This series will share answers to some common DW1000 questions.


Is the DWM1000 RoHs Compliant?

Yes, the DWM1000 meets RoHS 6 requirements as laid down by the 2011/65/EU RoHS2 Directive.

Is the DWM1000 certified e.g. by FCC, CE, ETSI Compliant?

As there is no microprocessor on the DWM1000 module it cannot be certified as delivered by Decawave because its mode of operation is not defined. The mode of operation is decided only when a customer connects a microprocessor and programs the module as part of their end application.

What kind of test has DWM1000 been through during production?

As part of the DWM1000 production the crystal has been trimmed and its trim value is stored in the OTP. TX power and RX sensitivity are tested but not calibrated. Further information can be found in chapter 8 DW1000 Calibration of the DW1000 user manual
