ISP1510 Smart Ultra Wide Band + Bluetooth Low Energy Combo Module

UWB and  Bluetooth Low Energy 5 Ready / ANT+ NFC /with MCU and Two Antennas

This module integrates the DecaWave DW1000 chipset which is an Ultra Wide Band transceiver dedicated to indoor localization applications. This chipset needs an external processor to operate and Insight SiP decided to integrate the Nordic Semi nRF52 SoC. In addition to the powerful ARM Cortex M4 MCU, this chip also provides a BLE and NFC connectivity for wireless set up and control of the UWB chip.

ISP1510 also integrates all passives, crystals and DC/DC converters to optimize the power consumption. And last but not least, it integrates 2 antennas in the same package. This is a new and unique concept developed by Insight SiP within a SIP package. For BLE function, we keep using our usual PCB trace antenna design. For UWB function, the second antenna is printed directly on top of the molding. After the success of our first ISP091201 BLE Antenna-in-Package concept which inspired many of our competitors, Insight SIP is proud to be once again the market leader for Antenna-in-Package solutions!

Block Diagram

This module is based on DecaWave DW1000 single-chip UWB transceiver and nRF52832 Nordic Semiconductor 2.4GHz wireless System on Chip (SoC). It integrates a 32-bit ARM Cortex™ M4 CPU, flash memory as well as analog and digital peripherals. It can support:
- UWB communication compliant to IEEE802.15.4. ISP151001 UWB section can be used as stand-alone ranging module using a simple user interface controlled over the air by Bluetooth or by SPI.

Alternatively, it can be used in conjunction with an external microprocessor for more complex positioning algorithms, in which case all the processing is carried out externally to the module.
- BLE connectivity compliant to Bluetooth V4.2. ISP1510 BLE section can be used either in Peripheral or Central roles for BLE. Fully qualified BLE stacks for nRF52832 are implemented in the S132 SoftDevice which can be freely downloaded.
Despite the small size of 9.0 x 16.0 x 1.9 mm, the module integrates decoupling capacitors, 38.4 MHz crystal for UWB, 32 MHz and 32.768 kHz crystals for BLE, DC-DC converters, RF matching circuits and two antennas in addition to the wireless SoCs. Ultra-low power consumption and advanced power management enables battery lifetimes up to several years on a coin cell battery.
