CoreHW launches a highly accurate indoor positioning solution

February 20, 2019, anysilicon

CoreHW RABBIT (Rotating Antenna for Bluetooth Beacon and Internet of Things) solution is designed for Bluetooth 5.1, which has an unprecedented direction-finding feature. The new technology makes it possible for Bluetooth devices to determine the direction of a Bluetooth signal transmission and enables centimeter-level positioning accuracy.


CoreHW RABBIT is optimized specifically for Bluetooth 5.1 Angle of Arrival (AoA) and Angle of Departure (AoD) positioning application. This new, cost-effective solution by CoreHW is expected to disrupt the exponentially growing indoor positioning market.


The application areas include:

  • accurate indoor positioning (cm-level positioning accuracy)
  • asset tracking
  • location-based advertising
  • Point of Interest
  • navigation systems
  • aftermarket automotive applications


The components needed to take full advantage of Bluetooth AoA/AoD are a Bluetooth 5.1 capable transceiver, phase accurate switch and antenna array. The unique RF switch developed by CoreHW features 16 phase matched antenna ports, which can be used to drive single-ended or differential antennas.


As CoreHW’s goal is to be a one-stop partner for their customers, the company also provides custom antenna design service in addition to providing antenna reference designs and positioning algorithms.
