NXP's Trimension™ Ultra-Wideband Technology Helps Samsung Users Easily Find Their Misplaced Belongings

NXP's UWB and Bluetooth® technologies work together to provide greater location accuracy for Samsung Galaxy SmartTag+

TAIPEI, Taiwan, June 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- COMPUTEX -- NXP Semiconductors announced that its Trimension Ultra-Wideband platform now offers fine ranging for new tagging use cases. UWB and Bluetooth® Low Energy solutions have been combined to deliver spatial awareness to the new Samsung Galaxy SmartTag+, providing an enhanced experience to the Samsung SmartThings Find service.

SmartThings Find is an innovative service within the SmartThings application, available on select Galaxy devices1 – including the Galaxy S21+ and S21 Ultra – featuring powerful detection capabilities that help users find the things that matter most, near or far. It can accurately locate Samsung Galaxy devices2 and any personal items – such as a backpack, wallet, or keys – with a Galaxy SmartTag attached through an intuitive tracking interface. And now, with the addition of Galaxy SmartTag+ utilizing Trimension UWB and Bluetooth® Low Energy, users can take advantage of augmented reality technology to visually guide them towards their missing item using their smartphone's camera3.

UWB makes users aware of the location of their personal items, giving them peace of mind. It brings us one step closer to a smart connected world where objects can communicate with each other to anticipate, automate, and enable new experiences.

"SmartThings Find is a simple and visual solution that will help you easily locate your favorite items. With the added advantage of using AR4 in conjunction with maps and sounds to guide you back to your devices with a Galaxy SmartTag+ attached, the SmartThings Find experience has become even more powerful: it makes people’s everyday lives easier, more convenient and safer," said Inkang Song, Vice President & Head of Technology Strategy Group, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics. "The key to our innovative offering on SmartTag+ is NXP's UWB fine ranging technology, which makes it possible to lock onto the position of an object with greater precision."

"NXP's Trimension technology helps deliver precision when it counts and enables new and future possibilities," said Rafael Sotomayor, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Connectivity and Security for NXP Semiconductors. "Precision combined with security is the foundation for a host of new use cases.
