AoA Evaluation Kit System


AoA Evaluation Kit: CHW1010-EVKN2-1.0

The CoreHW Angle-of-arrival (AoA) evaluation kit (CHW1010-EVKN2-1.0) based on the CoreHW SP16T AoA and AoD Antenna Switch provides a hardware and software environment for evaluation and testing of Real Time Location Systems‘ accuracy. The evaluation kit is not designed for production use cases.

The system can be used for laboratory tests and for initial testing in the real use case scenarios. It provides support to locator product development and development of final end-to-end RTLS solution.

The AoA evaluation kit contains four CoreHW Gen2 locators and two tags. CoreHW firmware is used in the tags and locators to enable AoA measurement. The system uses Ethernet interfaces to connect locators to Windows PC which has position engine software with user interface (GUI).
