Ultra-wideband or UWB is a short-range wireless technology mostly used for tracking down the location of objects via smartphones. At the same time, it is a standard way of communication that enables you to send and receive data across short distances with ultimate speed.
The newly launched smartphones such as the iPhone 14 and 15 series, the Galaxy S23 lineup, and the Google Pixel Fold use ultra-wideband technology. One may find this tech as embedded chips within these devices. Thus, you may not require a separate tool for finding stuff.
How does the ultra-wideband work?
It is worth mentioning that, unlike other wireless standards such as Bluetooth, GPS, and more, UWB is quite different. It is a pulse-based mechanism that sends data in the time domain between a spectrum ranging from 3.1 to 10.6 GHz.
Due to this pulse-based mechanism, it is easy to calculate the time of transfer from the received data. It further states how long it takes the data transfer to go from one device to another. Moreover, UWB makes file sharing easier via Airdrop and Nearby-Share.
