Samsung announces ultra-wideband chipset with centimeter precision for mobile and automotive devices – Samsung Global Newsroom
Introduced under the new brand “Exynos Connect”, the Exynos Connect U100 offers highly accurate distance measurement down to one digit in centimeters
Samsung Electronics, a world leader in advanced semiconductor technology, today announced its first ultra-wideband (UWB) chipset, the Exynos Connect U100. With single-digit centimeter accuracy, the new UWB solution is optimized for use in mobile, automotive and Internet of Things (IoT) devices, delivering accurate distance and location information.
Samsung also unveiled “Exynos Connect,” a new brand that consolidates its short-range wireless communication solutions, such as UWB, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, which are essential to facilitating an increasingly hyper-connected world.
“Our Exynos Connect U100 combines sophisticated telemetry and positioning capabilities with enhanced security to enable hyper-connectivity between people and everyday objects, powering a range of new positioning and tracking applications,” said Joonsuk Kim. , executive vice president of the connectivity development team. at Samsung Electronics. “Building on our technology leadership in communications technologies, we are committed to driving innovation in short-range communications solutions to transform the way we connect and interact with the world around us.”
UWB is a short-range wireless communication technology that operates over a wide frequency spectrum, enabling fast data transfers at low power. With its ability to capture highly accurate spatial and directional data, UWB is gaining popularity in various industries, including those dealing with remote payments, smart keys, smart homes, and smart factories.
Leveraging both Time of Arrival (ToA) and 3D Angle of Arrival (AoA) measurements, Samsung’s Exynos Connect U100 delivers single-digit centimeter and sub-five degree accuracy. This makes it particularly useful when tracking location in harsh indoor environments where GPS is unavailable, as well as for AR and VR applications that require accurate, real-time tracking of moving people.
The U100 integrates radio frequency (RF), baseband, embedded flash memory (eFlash) and power management IP into a single chip, making it ideal for use in compact devices.
With its power saving mode, the U100 can maximize the battery life of mobile and automotive solutions as well as IoT devices such as smart tracking beacons that run on batteries with power supply capability. limited. For reliable communication, the U100 is also equipped with an encrypted Timestamp Sequence (STS) function and a secure hardware encryption engine to prevent external hacking.
Samsung’s Exynos Connect U100 has been certified by the FiRa Consortium, an industry-led non-profit organization that certifies UWB products for compliance with interoperability standards.
The U100 is also compliant with the Car Connectivity Consortium (CCC) Digital Key Version 3.0, a standard designed to store, authenticate and exchange digital vehicle keys, allowing smartphones equipped with the U100 to securely communicate vehicle information. digital keys with vehicles.
