Time of flight ranging

Which modules are ready (FCC and ETSI approved) and have time of flight ranging?

I'm not looking for dev kits, but rather a module that I can embed in a product.

Hi kc6ete,

Hi kc6ete,

Thanks for your question on our public BLE forums. Please checkout the SmartBond™ Wireless Ranging (WiRa) SDK solution – link is provided below:

https://www.dialog-semiconductor.com/products/connectivity/bluetooth-low-energy/products/smartbond-wireless-ranging-SDK

Our WiRa SDK enhances the DA1469x family of Bluetooth LE SoCs with new, highly accurate and reliable distance measurement capabilities.

Applications: Social Distancing, Asset tracking, Indoor Positioning, Smart locks, Authentication (eg. for Mobile Payments)

Additionally, a Social Distancing Tag (SDT) reference application based on WiRa SDK is also provided. It combines WiRa SDK with RSSI measurement, BLE communication, datalogging and other functionalities uploaded into a single application.

Thanks, PM_Dialog

I'm asking which modules, approved and ready to embed in a product, support this software.  I don't need the link to the SDK

Hi kc6ete,

Hi kc6ete,

The time of flight ranging functionality (which we refer to as WiRa) is only available on our DA1469x family of devices. An FCC/ETSI approved module for the DA14691 will be available within the next couple of months. Once it is launched it will appear on the modules section of our website:

That is unfortunate.  I am

That is unfortunate.  I am looking to design this into a system with about 50k opportunity annually, and my local rep told me that the modules were approved back in June.

I have the dev kits with ranging, and we've tested them in our application, and it performs well.

I can discuss more in private mail.
