nWP036 - Direction Finding

This white paper describes how to configure and enable the Bluetooth® Direction Finding features of nRF52 and nRF53 Series devices.

It is intended for developers and system integrators , and focuses on Angle of Arrival (AoA) implementation by providing instructions on how to get IQ samples. However, you can use the main principles in this white paper to create an Angle of Departure (AoD) system.

The configuration in this white paper only describes one part of the Direction Finding system. Stack and application software are required for this configuration to be Bluetooth compatible and certifiable.

Note: Nordic Semiconductor SoftDevices cannot be used with the Direction Finding system.
