Quuppa Ready SoCs

Quuppa System can track any device running with the Bluetooth 4.2 version onwards, as long as it sends radio packets structured according to the Quuppa Emulation Specification. This can be seen as an extension on the standard as iBeacon and Eddystone protocol has been used in Bluetooth beacons.

Albeit being radio agnostic, we have been working closely with some of the best-in-class semiconductor companies in order to optimize interoperability on specific System-on-Chips (SoC). This makes device makers’ life easier and go-to-market quicker. On this website we present several radio chips from our partner semiconductors that have implemented not just Quuppa Emulation Specification, but also the best practices Quuppa has developed over the past ten years.

QUUPPA-READY SOC - compliance requirements

Quuppa Direction Finding and Data Packets (UPLINK)
Quuppa Direction Finding (DF) Packets enable Quuppa Positioning Engine (QPE) to compute the accurate position for the transmitting device/tag. Whereas Data Packets provide developers with a channel to transmit sensor data from the device to the QPE and to have it accessible via QPE’s APIs. [Specification: Quuppa Tag Emulation using Bluetooth Wireless Technology]

Back Channel (DOWNLINK)
Back Channel enables developers to use QPE APIs to send data and commands to the device via Back Channel. Typically these are configuration changes, or functional commands such as blinking LED or vibrating devices to complement the use case. [Specification: Quuppa Tag Back Channel using Bluetooth Wireless Technology]

Proprietary Channels (2401, 2403, 2481)
Quuppa System can operate on the standard Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Channels, or on the Proprietary Channels (2401, 2403, 2481) on the 2,4GHz ISM band. Operating outside the standard BLE-channels makes the system more interference-tolerant, and hence enables accurate positioning in real-time in the highly congested environments like airports, shopping malls, exhibition centres and sport arenas. [Specification: Quuppa Proprietary Frequency Channels]

State Machine logic
State Machine Logic is the brain that controls how the device operates radio. The state machine has several important functions: first and foremost it listens to the accelerometer data to control device’s advertisement activity on one hand to save battery, and on the other hand to decrease unnecessary Bluetooth congestion in environments with tens of thousands of tags (e.g. warehouse). [Specification: Quuppa Tag Emulation Pro Profiles]

Technical Documentation 
Technical documentation shall provide developers with the basics of the Quuppa AoA-positioning logic and relevant use cases. It shall include developer resources like code, and samples, as well as instructions on how to compile the code by using the libraries / SDK.

Frequently Asked Questions

We are open to work with new semiconductors. Please, contact  to get started with the collaboration.

The links on this website lead to the technical documentation of each semiconductor. Also, we recommend reading our Tag Design Guidelines.

Quuppa sells its technology through its Solution and System Integrator Partners. These partners typically complement Quuppa through their end-user application, technology platform or professional services. Therefore we are not currently looking for distributors per se. If you still want to talk to us about the potential collaboration, please, leave us a contact form, and we will get back to you.

Please, submit us a contact form with as thorough information as possible. Once we have reviewed your submission, we will contact you for the next steps.
