u-blox XPLR-AOA-1 Explorer Kit for Bluetooth Direction Finding Now at Mouser

22 SEPTEMBER 2021

Mouser Electronics, Inc., the authorized global distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components, is now stocking the XPLR-AOA-1 Explorer Kit from u-blox. The new kit makes it easy to evaluate the potential of Bluetooth® 5.1 direction finding and high-precision indoor positioning to enable applications such as access control, collision detection, smart appliances, and asset tracking.

The u-blox XPLR-AOA-1 Explorer Kit, available from Mouser Electronics, an antenna board with a u-blox NINA-B411 Bluetooth Low Energy module, transmitter tag with NINA-B406 Bluetooth Low Energy module, and u-connectLocate direction-finding software. The software runs directly on the NINA-B411 module’s embedded Nordic Semiconductor nRF52833 system-on-chip (SoC), calculating the angle-of-arrival (AoA) of the incoming signals with no additional processing required.

Engineers can create a full positioning system by combining several XPLR-AOA-1 kits and triangulating the directions from three or more antenna boards. Applications include detecting whether a person or an object is approaching a door, avoiding collisions between moving objects, and directing a camera at a moving tag.
