The installed base of connected devices is expected to reach over 66 billion by 2025, spanning across a number of verticals, including mobile devices, PCs, wearables, home entertainment, smart home, consumer electronics, automotive, smart building, smart city, industrial, and other IoT applications, according to ABI
Research. Enabling this tremendous growth are a range of different wireless connectivity technologies, each with their own specific strengths and weaknesses, which continue to evolve in better service new use cases, enhance performance within existing domains, or to help create unique end user experiences and services that will drive the market forward.
However, there is no one-size fits all technology, and each one has unique characteristics making them better suited to certain use cases, whether that be range, power consumption, throughput, security, or other metrics.
Ultra-Wideband (UWB) has recently re-emerged and evolved, thanks to its unique technical features and characteristics that set it apart from what is on the market today. These unique features allow it to take advantage of growing demands for secure ranging and localization within a variety of automotive, industrial, and IoT applications, enabling new user experiences that existing technologies have not been able to address effectively to date.
