Mouser Electronics, Inc., the authorized global distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components, is now shipping the Type2BP ultra-wideband (UWB) module from Murata. The Type2BP UWB module is ideal for the wireless enablement of larger infrastructures including access control, indoor positioning anchors and payment terminals, as well as consumer products, such as televisions and gaming consoles.
The Murata Type2BP UWB module, available from Mouser Electronics, is ideal for the growing ecosystem of spatial context awareness in IoT devices while simplifying wireless development by minimizing the amount of RF expertise needed to wirelessly enable a wide range of applications. The Type2BP module is one of the smallest (6.6 mm × 5.8 mm × 1.2 mm) UWB module available on the market and is based on NXP Semiconductors’ SR150 UWB chipset, clock, filters and peripheral components. It features low current consumption and includes channels 5 and 9 support with enhanced and secure ranging along with various antenna support configurations (3D angle of arrival (AOA) or 2D AOA).
The Type2BP UWB module also features integrated physical layer (PHY) and medium access controller (MAC) functions designed to meet FiRa™ specifications, to ensure interoperability with a growing set of UWB devices.
The Murata Type2BP UWB module is supported by the UWB-Module-EVK evaluation kit, also available at Mouser. This kit consists of an integrated evaluation board featuring the Type2BP UWB module, the NXP QN9090 Bluetooth® Low Energy SoC (system on a chip) and a USB / JTAG interface. The kit is powered through a USB cable from a PC and includes an integrated onboard PCB pattern patch antenna, a power circuit, an SWD connector and a level shifter. This development kit is approved by Apple® for the purpose of evaluating UWB-enabled accessories that leverage Apple’s Nearby Interaction Framework for spatial location.
