Description

DWUSB

The Ciholas DWUSB-SMA is a demonstration device for experimenting with Ultra-Wideband (UWB) Real Time Location Systems (RTLS). In the Ciholas UWB (CUWB) system, the DWUSB can act in multiple roles, such as reference anchor, mobile trackable tag, and UWB network interface. The DWUSB-KIT comes with a DWUSB-SMA unit, removable antenna, USB rechargeable battery, AC/DC wall power adapter, and a USB cable.

The DWUSB is intended to be used for UWB and RTLS research and development, and is not FCC certified.

Operation

Power and Communication

The DWUSB is designed with a USB Type-A connector for easy connection to typical USB power sources. The kit provides a battery pack as well as a USB power power brick that may be used to power the device.

The DWUSB may also be connected to a USB compatible hub for both communications and power.

Configuration

Details for setup and configuration of the CUWB RTLS system using DWUSB devices can be found in the User Manual. Also please visit the Documentation Site to learn about feature updates and upgrades.
