nanoLOC Transceiver; NLSG0501A
Radio Technology: Chirp

High Performance RF Transceiver Enabling Location Awareness

Highly Integrated Solution with Ranging
The nanoLOC TRX Transceiver is a highly integrated mixed signal chip utilizing Nanotron’s unique wireless communication technology CSS (Chirp Spread Spectrum).
With its unique ranging capability, nanoLOC can measure the link distance between two nodes. Thus, nanoLOC supports location-aware applications including Location Based
Services (LBS), enhanced RFID, as well as asset tracking (2D/3D RTLS). As ranging is performed during regular data communication, additional infrastructure, power, and/or
bandwidth is not required.

Improved Coexistence Performance
nanoLOC supports a freely adjustable center frequency with 3 non-overlapping frequency channels. This provides support for multiple physically independent networks and improved
coexistence performance with existing 2.4 GHz wireless technologies. Data rates are selectable from 2 Mbps to 125 kbps. Due to the chip’s unique chirp pulse, adjustment of the antenna is not critical. This significantly simplifies the system’s installation and maintenance (“pick and place”).
A sophisticated MAC controller with CSMA/CA and TDMA support is included, as is Forward Error Correction (FEC) and 128 bit hardware encryption. To minimize software and
microcontroller requirements, nanoLOC also provides scrambling, automatic address matching, and packet retransmission.

Applications
Logistics: Asset tracking / Active RFID
2D / 3D Real Time Location Systems (RTLS)
Industrial Monitoring and Control
Security / Government
Medical Applications

Minimal External Components Required
The nanoLOC TRX Transceiver can work with almost every microcontroller. It is designed so that only a minimal number of external components are required to build a fully
operational bi-directional wireless communication node, thus reducing the BOM to a minimum.

Superior Ranging with SDS-TWR
Nanotron's SDS-TWR algorithm (Symmetrical Double-Sided Two-Way Ranging) allows superior accuracy even with the use of low cost crystals for the oscillators. High frequency clocks are not required to achieve a resolution of less than a meter.
SDS-TWR enables low-cost and easy to install infrastructure RTLS – freeing you from the burden of expensive readers and time-synchronization cabling.

Flexible Development Tools
nanoLOC is fully supported with development and evaluation tools as well as drivers and demonstration software. Designers can quickly evaluate and develop custom location-
enabled and ranging wireless applications. Contact Nanotron Sales to order the nanoLOC RF Performance or Ranging Evaluation Kits, the nanoLOC Development Kit, and the nanoLOC nTRX Driver.
