Programming DWM1001 as anchors

I have a custom board with DWM1001 fitted and connected to my host micro controller via UART.

There are a couple of questions I have:

  1. Can you set the node as Anchor with X, Y and Z location and ID like you do when you set up the DWM1001 dev kit (it uses Bluetooth app but I want to do same thing using the UART)

  2. Do the DWM1001 modules get supplied pre-loaded with same API firmware as the dev-kit and have “les” command etc?

Thanks in advance.


  1. Yes it is possible, please have a look at the dwm1001 firmware user guide. There a different was to do it over uart, the command to looks at is acas (uart shell).

  2. The DM1001 is now pre-loaded with the PANS firmware, but you can download it from the decawave website.

Hope it helps,
