Module or SoC: What Makes Sense for Your Next Wi-Fi Product?

Many newcomers to IoT who are in the early phase of adding connectivity to their product, ask us about the tradeoff between using a system-on-a-chip (SoC) or a wireless module. SoCs are attractive because of their low cost, but have implications in terms of design complexity and regulatory approvals. Modules simplify the product design process, but can be more expensive.

In this webinar, we will:

  • Provide various frameworks that will help you decide what makes sense for your next IoT product
  • Review hidden costs that you might encounter for in-house module development such as RF design resources, antenna matching, regulatory approvals, and more
  • Provide breakeven analysis templates to enable financial analysis of building in-house vs. buying from a chip vendor or a third party
