Insight SiP launches ISP3080 miniature UWB-BLE combo module with integrated antennas
Sophia Antipolis, France, 20 September 2023 - Insight SiP, the supplier of advanced miniature RF modules, launches its ISP3080 UWB-BLE module. This device offers state of the art integration and miniaturization of RF technologies, using System in Package technology. The device also benefits from Insight SiP’s proprietary, industry-leading “Antenna-in-Package” techniques.
The module is a fully integrated device, requiring only power to create a fully functioning UWB and BLE node, with both antennas integrated into the module. Measuring only 12 x 12 x 1.5 mm, this is a unique solution on the market, in terms of both its miniature size and level of integration. Ultra low power can be achieved by using a combination of Bluetooth and the integrated accelerometer to switch on the UWB transceiver only when necessary.
Applications for the new device include secure entry, real-time location systems, ticketing and barrier control, and hands-free key solutions.
The device offers a wide range of peripherals allowing a comprehensive selection of digital and analogue connections, including UWB, SPI, UART, I2C, programmable general purpose I/Os and on-board analogue to digital converters.
Nick Wood, Sales and Marketing Director for Insight SiP said, “We are delighted to launch this module with the next generation of UWB technology. With the FiRa standard gaining wide acceptance and the implementation of UWB on mobile phones, we believe Ultra-Wideband has truly “come of age” and will become an increasingly prevalent technology.
