Decawave DWM1001


The DWM1001 development board includes the DWM1001 module, battery connector and charging circuit, LEDs, buttons, Raspberry-Pi and USB connector. In addition, the board comes with J-Link OB adding debugging and Virtual COM Port capabilities.

See Decawave DWM1001-DEV website 3 for more information about the development board, Decawave DWM1001 website 2 about the board itself, and nRF52832 website 1 for the official reference on the IC itself.

Programming and Debugging

Applications for the decawave_dwm1001_dev board configuration can be built and flashed in the usual way (see Building an Application and Run an Application for more details); however, the standard debugging targets are not currently available.


Follow the instructions in the Nordic nRF5x Segger J-Link page to install and configure all the necessary software. Further information can be found in Flashing. Then build and flash applications as usual (see Building an Application and Run an Application for more details).

Here is an example for the Hello World application.

First, run your favorite terminal program to listen for output.

$ minicom -D <tty_device> -b 115200

Replace <tty_device> with the port where the board nRF52 DK can be found. For example, under Linux, /dev/ttyACM0.

Then build and flash the application in the usual way.
