Bluetooth and UWB used to send and receive data wirelessly using radio signals.
Following are the important differences between Bluetooth and UWB.
|1||Definition||Bluetooth has no full form.||UWB stands for Ultra-Wide Band.|
|2||Frequency||Bluetooth frequency ranges between 2.4 GHz to 2.483 GHz.||UWB frequency ranges also are between 2.4 GHz to 2.843 GHz.|
|3||RF Channel||Bluetooth has 79 RF Channels.||UWB has 1 to 15 RF Channels.|
|4||Modulation Technique||Bluetooth uses GFSK modulation technique.||UWB uses BPSK and QPSK modulation techniques.|
|5||Cell Nodes||Bluetooth has maximum 8 cell nodes.||UWB also has maximum 8 cell nodes.|
|6||Bandwidth||Bluetooth needs low bandwidth.||UWB needs high bandwidth.|
|7||IEEE||Bluetooth follows IEEE 802.15.1.||UWB follows IEEE 802.15.3a.|
