What configuration is the other Decawave in?


I've been trying to read Decawave distance values into a microprocessor (Arduino, not Nucleo, but hey) and I was wondering what settings you had on your opposite Decawave. That is, assuming you are driving one Decawave with your code on a Nucleo board, what is the other Decawave doing? Is it battery powered? Also Nucleo powered? In Tag mode, or Anchor mode?

Thanks, Eric Schneider

This is the DW1000 driver and our self developed distance measurement application based on it. We do this as a semester thesis at ETH Zürich under the Automatic Control Laboratory … decawave, driver, dw1000, eth, Ranging, SPI, tranciever

both ends have the same Hardware: NUCLEO with DWM1000 connected. For us they are just USB-Powered with laptops for prototyping. if you lookup the main function, there's a flag set right at the start to specify if it's a beacon or anchor. But this is software only and has nothing to do with the DW1000 chips, they are configured exactly the same...

Hope it helped otherwise ask again :)
