The DecaWave Two-Way-Ranging (TWR) Real Time Location Systems (RTLS) IC Evaluation Kit enables users to evaluate the performance of DecaWave’s award winning DW1000 UWB IC in RTLS use cases based on various topologies.

Easy and quick to set-up, TREK1000 is the ideal solution to assess the unrivalled performance of Decawave's technology and to build a 'proof of concept' in hours.  It allows users to quickly evaluate DecaWave’s market-leading UWB technology in multiple real-time location systems (RTLS) use cases.


Based on the Two-Way Ranging scheme, TREK1000 allows the user to test 3 different topologies:

Tracking — using 3 anchors and 1 tag to cover applications use cases around asset tracking, logistics and factory automation. In this configuration, the user will be able to collect the 2D or 3D    position of the tag relative to the anchors position.

Geo-Fencing (also called 'Secure Bubble')—Based on 1 anchor and up to 3 tags, this configuration enables users to monitor if the tags are within certain pre-defined perimeters around the anchor – the bubble. This will allow users to evaluate use cases like personal safety (collision avoidance, security perimeter around machinery), child monitoring or ‘secure-my-valuables’ types of applications.

Need to test or configure a larger system?  No problem, the system can be extended by simply adding an EVK1000.Navigation—also using 3 anchors and 1 tag. Connected directly to the tag, the user will be able to walk around and visualize its current position, allowing to test human and robotics navigation scenarios.

The TWR RTLS IC Evaluation Kit* consists of 4 units, configurable as anchors or tags, PC application software and source code for RTLS result display and board software source code.

*Power supplies are not included.
