Thanks to technology licensed by the DIT Antenna and High Frequency Research Centre with the help of DIT Hothouse, DecaWave was able to develop a customised antenna for its first miniature integrated circuit, launched successfully in 2013. DecaWave has since expanded its range of sensor chips to allow tagged objects to be located to precision levels of ten centimetres, in the case of indoor applications.
Dublin-based wireless chip design group, DecaWave, collaborated with DIT’s Antenna and High Frequency Research Centre (AHFR) to support its ScenSor chip (Single Chip Wireless Transceiver). The research team developed a fully customisable ultra wide band antenna and worked with DIT Hothouse in licensing the technology to DecaWave for use in its ScenSor chip.
