DecaWave is a pioneering fabless semiconductor company which has developed a complete,
single chip CMOS ultra wideband IC based on the IEEE802.15.4a standard, and building a family of parts to work at rates 110kbps, 850kbps, 6.8Mbps and 27Mbps.
Founded in 2004 by recognised global experts in the field of ultra wideband technology and its applications, we are headquartered in Dublin Ireland and have offices in San Jose California, Toulouse France, and South Korea.
Our technology resolves the problem of electronically identifying the specific location of any object, person or thing in an indoor environment (through obstructions), at ultra low cost,
ultra low power with a required level of precision never achieved before. We have developed unique Ultra-Wideband (UWB) technology based on the IEEE802.15.4a standard, which allows the precision tracking, location, and communication between objects using ultra-low power, ultra-low cost wireless transceivers, thereby bringing the "Internet of Things" concept closer to realisation.
We are currently working with 1000+ firms, research centres and individuals across 33 different verticals - from sensor networks in aircraft engine test facilities through animal husbandry monitoring and tracking systems on farms, to patient monitoring and tracking systems in hospitals - to fully realise the potential of UWB technology using the IEEE802.15.4a standard.
Machine-to-machine (M2M) communications using wireless technology is enabling all kinds of applications. There are currently two broad areas of application in this M2M space to which our technology is particularly relevant, and where we are working with lead companies to bring product and modules to market. These are:
In addition, there are further areas of application where our technology brings clear advantages, and where we are also collaborating with lead companies, including:
Because we believe the opportunities inherent in IEEE802.15.4a to be so numerous, we are willing to share – under contract – critical core intellectual property with prospective suitably qualified and resourced partner firms wishing to develop further markets for this technology.
