Qorvo QM33120WDK1 Development Kit

Qorvo QM33120WDK1 Development Kit is a demonstration and prototyping platform for the low-power QM33110W and QM33120W Ultra-Wideband (UWB) Transceivers. The QM33120WDK1 can be used to evaluate the performance of these devices in Two Way Ranging (TWR), Time Difference Of Arrival (TDoA), and Angle of Arrival (AoA) systems and can be used to build an evaluation Real-Time Location System (RTLS). The Development Kit can also be used to enable the development of applications based on DW3110, DW3120, DW3210, and DW3220 UWB transceivers.

The Qorvo QM33120WDK1 Development Kit includes two Daughter Boards (AoA and non-AoA) mounted on two Nordic Semiconductor nRF52840-DK Development Boards. Application firmware development is facilitated by the features of the Nordic boards, such as an onboard J-Link debugger, USB, and BLUETOOTH® Low Energy interfaces. The Development Kit is designed to develop applications compatible with PHY and MAC FiRa specifications.
