PANS frequency/data rate selection

From what i have read the PANS firmware configures the DW1000 transciever to use 6.8Mbps data rate and 6.5 GHz frequency and it is not currently possible to change that configuration. Is this correct? Does anyone know if decawave plans to release binaries with other configurations or add functionality to the API that will support data rate and frequency selection?

Hi Flying cake,

Yes that’s correct he configuration for PANS is fixed. There is no plan to provide a PANS version with a different configuration.

Changing data rate implies that you cannot send as much information in the same time frame, so we would required to re-design the MAC (duration and number of slots). The overall system would have a different capacity,

Hope it helps,
Yves

Thank you, that answers my question.
