The chip U1 of the iPhone 11 has been developed entirely by Apple

iFixit says that the chip Apple has a different design from the DW1000, but using the same standards and is compatible with third-party devices that use the chip from Decawave. A teardown of the Decawave chip and U1 of Apple by TechInsights confirms that Apple has developed its own technology.

The company shared the news in a post on the blog.

Apple has spent the last decade to become a chip maker. Now offer the series A, M, W, H, T, and S of processors and coprocessors on their devices. The processor wireless U1 is the latest addition, which appears in the new line of iPhone 11. Originally thought to be licensed by Decawave, the chip is in fact developed by Apple. In a statement, Decawave has told us that “Apple has designed the chip set that conforms to the standard 802.15.4 z, which will be interoperable with Decawave.” The technical TechInsights has disassembled the package Decawave has told us that their analysis shows that the chip U1 of the Apple is “completely different” compared to the DW1000.

The chip U1 uses a variant of Wi-Fi, but in a frequency range that is not used by many others.

Within the frequency spectrum of the UWB, can use huge channels 500 MHz. It is a huge jump from the Wi-Fi channels to 20 MHz, and bad channels to 2 MHz for Bluetooth. This helps dramatically with the bandwidth, speed and latency.

“Given that the bandwidth is so wide, you can practically eliminate the problems that has 2.4 GHz,” says Sanitate. The frequency spectrum of 2.4 GHz is overwhelmed by a multitude of different devices throughout the home, including devices with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and ZigBee, as well as cordless phones, alarms for cars and microwave ovens. The UWB uses frequency ranges that are higher that are not so overwhelmed. ‘There is really nothing in that space’, says Sanitate. “Some Wi-Fi use 5 GHz, but above 5 GHz there is really nothing.”

It is interesting to note that, although the Apple chips adhere to the standard of ultra-wideband (UWB), making it compatible with a chip similar in other devices, Apple does not seem to be a member of the Alliance UWB. The current members include iRobot, Hyundai, and Kia.

The chip U1 should be used to locate the tag Apple, a version not yet announced a tracker similar to Tile. However, the chip could do much more, including the enabling of blocks intelligent much more confident.
