Dwm1003 firmware on dwm1001

Hi, I have the PDoA kit for Decawave. I actually have two of them, and a MDEK1001 old kit as well.
My question is: can I flash the new dwm1003 firmware on any dwm1001? I tried and partially tested it using the PC executable… I saw that the dwm1002 detected the new “tag” node, but I’m not sure about if this is good or not since dwm1003 and dwm1001 are slightly different.

Let me know.

Hi Bettis,

The main differences between the DWM1001 and the DWM1003 are:

  • Power management (DCDC/LDOs)
  • IMU (inertial measurement unit) sensors

When using the DWM1003 firmware on the DWM1001 module, you can expect to have issues with the movement detection and the accelerometer.



I am trying to do the same thing as you described, using DWM1001 modules as PDoA Tag’s (DWM1003), but I couldn’t get the node to see the DWM1001. May I ask how did you manage to do it?
