Our core value proposition to Pinmicro customers is, how can we enhance business performance using location intelligence? UWB provides technology and accuracy capabilities that could never be imagined before. We are proud to be part of the UWB alliance and look forward to leverage the inherent benefit to create more savings and value for our customers.

Mr. Tiby Kuruvilla, Global CEO Pinmicro Japan

UWB has gained growing public attention over the past couple of years. Three of the top-ten smartphone vendors have all introduced UWB into their latest smartphones. UWB has also been rolled in PC, smart-home and smart-wearable products from top OEMs. It has also been widely adopted by the automotive industry as a way to prevent vehicle theft by offering enhanced protection against relay attacks. At the same time, many other technology companies are now deploying UWB for diverse applications such as secure payment solutions, AR/VR, high resolution COVID-19 contact tracing, medical, entertainment, and many other smart IoT services.

We are delighted to welcome Pinmicro to our membership and look forward to their involvement and valued contributions in the UWB Alliance organization

Tim Harrington, Chairman of the UWB Alliance
