  • De-risking IoT Wireless Design: Leveraging Certified Modules and Rapid Iteration
    Published February 2017
    Low-power IoT wireless design is challenging, because the very concept of where a connected product begins and ends gets stretched across hardware, firmware, local mesh and device operations in the cloud. Add in IoT's constraints around size, unit cost, mass distribution and power consumption, and it's clear that for a successful product, every aspect of the wireless design must be carefully considered and optimized. In this white paper, Rigado discusses two key strategies for IoT wireless design: leveraging pre-certified modules to reduce risk and time to market, and planning for continued iteration via remote updates.
