BlueNRG-LPS enables real-time positioning with centimeter accuracy
The Bluetooth 5.3 core specification introduces Direction Finding features to enhance the performance of Bluetooth location service solutions. These features allow devices to determine the direction of a Bluetooth signal, enabling the development of powerful, low-cost, and real-time locating systems, with location accuracy down to tens of centimeters.

Looking for a low-cost Real-Time Location System (RTLS) solution? The Direction Finding feature of Bluetooth 5.1 is for you!
How to test & prototype with BlueNRG-LPS
Choose a development kit to start testing the features of the BlueNRG-LPS SoC
Evaluation platform based on the BlueNRG-LPS System-on-Chip.
This software package provides a Bluetooth® LE binary library with a complete set of APIs and related events callbacks to access the Bluetooth® LE functionality offered by the BlueNRG-LPS device. It contains a full set of demonstration applications allowing to target several Bluetooth LE scenarios using the BlueNRG-LPS device.
STSW-QUUPPA-ETAG: ST Quuppa tag emulation
The STSW-QUUPPA-ETAG evaluation software package allows building a Quuppa tag emulation device that features the location-tracking capability, multiple sensor data provisioning, and a framework for custom back-channel commands to be used through the Quuppa proprietary positioning system.
This package provides the GCC toolchain-based WiSE-Studio Eclipse IDE, supporting the BlueNRG-LPS and associated evaluation platforms. Available for free, and for Windows, Linux, MAC OS.
The STSW-BNRGUI software package consists of a graphical user interface (GUI) PC application that can be used to interact and evaluate the capabilities of the BlueNRG-LPS Bluetooth Low Energy System-on-Chip.
The STSW-BNRGFLASHER is a SW package containing a standalone PC utility, which allows the BlueNRG-LPS System-on-Chip device Flash to be read, mass erased, written and programmed. It supports BlueNRG-LPS Flash access through both UART and SWD interfaces using, respectively, the internal device UART bootloader and the standard SWD interface through HW SWD programming/debugging tools (CMSIS-DAP, ST-Link/V2, J-Link).
