CoreHW SP16T AoX Switch

CoreHW SP16T AoX Switch

CoreHW RF Switch Optimized for Indoor Positioning

CoreHW SP16T is a chip product family supporting Bluetooth® Low Energy applications. CoreHW SP16T enables very high direction-finding accuracy needed especially for Bluetooth 5.1 Angle of Arrival (AoA) and Angle of Departure (AoD) indoor positioning feature.

CoreHW SP16T brings the pinpoint accuracy of GPS indoors. Using several beacons CoreHW SP16T enables direction finding also in 3D. Outdoors CoreHW SP16T complements existing location-finding technologies. Its key benefits include a small footprint with a clever design, making several previously needed components redundant.


  • Asset tracking
  • Access control and security services
  • Proximity advertising
  • Point of interest services
  • Accurate positioning and navigation systems
  • Aftermarket automotive applications


  • Very high location accuracy in real life conditions
  • Low device, system and installation cost
  • Very low energy consumption
  • Easy development of client applications – will be supported by all coming mobile devices
  • Suitable also for outdoor proximity positioning

Bluetooth 5.1 AoA/AoD Enabled by CoreHW RF Switch

A new direction-finding feature in Bluetooth 5.1 makes it possible for Bluetooth devices to determine the direction of a Bluetooth signal transmission with a high degree of accuracy using AoA/AoD methods.

CoreHW SP16T supports Bluetooth 5.1 AoA/AoD positioning application. It features 16 phase-matched antenna ports which can be used to drive single-ended or differential antennas. Absorptive and reflective antenna terminations are also available.

CoreHW offers custom antenna design service for various beacon enclosure shapes and sizes.
