AoA Demo Kit System: CHW1010-EVKN1-1.0

CHW1010-EVKN1-1.0 is a Bluetooth Angle-of-arrival (AoA) development kit system intended for indoor positioning system providers. This AoA Demo System based on the CoreHW SP16T AoA/AoD antenna switch provides a hardware environment for demonstration and testing of BT5.1 AoA functionality together with an integrated BLE chip.

The demo system is not developed for production usage and PC software does not support all features needed for mitigation of such as interference and multi-path reflections. The system can be used for laboratory tests and for initial testing in real use case scenarios.

It provides support to locator product development and development of final end-to-end RTLS solutions. The AoA demo system contains four CoreHW LOCN1 locators and two tags. CoreHW firmware is used in the tags and locators to enable AoA measurement. USB Interface is used to connect locators to Windows PC which has position engine software with user interface (GUI).
