radinoL4 DW1000 radino32 DW1000 radinoL4 DW1000

The In-Circuit radinoL4 DW1000 combines an STM32L433 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 radinoL4 DW1000 is the powerfull STM32L433 by STMicroelectronics, which with 32-bit ARM® Cortex®-M4 CPU, 64 kbyte RAM and 256 kbyte Flash provides enough resources for complex functionalities.
The radinoL4 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 radinoL4 DW1000 and the radino32 DW1000 using the same PCB.

With our Arduino Library for radino the radinoL4 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. The radinoL4 need the same driver like radino32 but a different library (only available for Arduino Boards Manager).

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

Please notice, that the radinoL4 DW1000 is not yet compatible with the dw1000 advanced demo from our radino Library, but with the basic dw1000 ranging demo.

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.

A documentation for the DW1000 ranging demo is also available. Please use the demo from DW1000 USB-Stick for radinoL4 DW1000 on a radino USB Stick.
