UWB vs Bluetooth

What is UWB?

UWB stands for ultra-wideband, it is radio protocol, very fast secure, and low power. It is used to determine location with accuracy that no other wireless technology matches.

What is Bluetooth?

Bluetooth is a wireless technology that allows electronic devices to communicate with one another. It can be used to build a personal network with a range of 10 meters that operates in the 2.4 GHz unlicensed band.

UWB vs Bluetooth:

  • UWB stands for ultra-wideband, Bluetooth has no full form.
  • Bluetooth has 79 radio frequency channels, whereas UWB has 1 to 15 radio frequency channels.
  • Bluetooth uses the GFSK modulation technique, while the UWB uses BPSK and QPSK modulation techniques.
  • Bluetooth requires low bandwidth, while the UWB requires high bandwidth.
  • The radio signal range of Bluetooth & UWB is ten meters.
  • There is a maximum of 8 cell nodes in Bluetooth, while there is also maximum of 8 cell nodes in UWB.
  • Both of the frequency range supported in Bluetooth vary from 2.4GHz to 2.483 GHz.
