AoA Evaluation Kit


AoA Evaluation Kit: CHW1010-EVKN5-1.0

CoreHW’s Gen3 AoA evaluation kit offers a hardware environment for demonstrating and testing the indoor positioning accuracy for Bluetooth® AoA technology. The Gen3 technology is designed to work reliably in challenging real-world environments with reflective multi-path conditions.

The AoA evaluation kit includes CoreHW Gen3 locators and tags, consisting of AoA antenna array boards and IPS Main Boards, controlled by CoreHW CHW1010 SP16T capable antenna switch. CoreHW firmware enables AoA measurements in the tags and locators, which can be connected to a Windows PC via Ethernet, Micro-USB, HW-UART, or SPI interfaces for position engine software with a user interface (GUI).

The kit is suitable for laboratory tests and initial testing in real-world use case scenarios, supporting locator product development and the development of end-to-end RTLS solutions.
