The In-Circuit radino32DW1000 combines an STM32L151 with the DW1000 UWB radio from Decawave in a small form-factor EMC-compliant module.
The DW1000 is a fully integrated single chip Ultra Wideband (UWB) low-power low-cost transceiver IC compliant to IEEE802.15.4-2011. It can be used in 2-way ranging or TDOA location systems to locate assets to a precision of 10 cm. It also supports data transfer at rates up to 6.8 Mbps.
The core of the radino32 DW1000 is the powerfull STM32L151 by STMicroelectronics, which with 32-bit ARM® Cortex®-M3 CPU, 32 kbyte RAM, 256 kbyte Flash and 8 kbyte EPROM provides enough resources for complex functionalities.
The radino32 DW1000 is part of the radino-series, which provides full-Arduino-compatible wireless communication devices in a small form factor. All radino Modules are pin-to-pin compatible.

The radino32 DW1000 is shipped programmed with the dw1000 advanced demo from our radino Library.
At dw1000_advanced_demo#First_steps_with_radino32_DW1000 there is a short tutorial how to activate measurements on freshly deliverd modules.

With our Arduino Library for radino the radino32 DW1000 becomes fully Arduino-compatible, which enables easy programming by using the Arduino IDE (http://www.arduino.cc/).
For the Arduino IDE Boards Manager follow URL is required:


Visit radino/radino32 software for more information about the Arduino IDE and installation.

For detailed information about our library for the Arduino IDE look at the radino Library documentation.

Common problems regarding radino modules and the Arduino system: Common problems

Windows will automatically install the wrong bootloader driver. Please follow the instructions for Windows 7 oder Windows 10.

If you don´t want to use the Ardunio IDE, you can flash an existing .bin file with stm32flash. For more informations see: Upload binary on radino32

Working with Arduino IDE

The Arduino IDE required follow includes for using the radino32 DW1000 (not for Arduino IDE 1.6.1 and radino_library v26 and less).

#include <SPI.h>
#include <DW1000Ranging.h>
#include <DW1000Device.h> 

For an own sketch at Arduino IDE 1.6.1 you should copy the dw1000_ranging_demo folder into the sketchbook folder as a new project.
