This thesis investigates the possible implementation and utilization of ultra-wideband (UWB) technology in a handheld device that serves as a sales system. The basic information of UWB technology based on theory is introduced, such as history, benefits and challenges, current standards, and the most common use cases. The general requirements and the planned use cases for UWB technology are presented to narrow the scope of the thesis. The thesis covers status of the current suppliers of UWB components and reasonings of the selection of a UWB chip and antennas for this thesis. Measurements are performed with the UWB chip, the UWB antennas and the entire UWB system implementation to verify that the requirements are met, and the technology works as designed. Based on theory and measurement results, it is demonstrated that both the implementation and utilization of UWB in the handheld device with the desired characteristics can be done.
