Sponsored by Silicon Labs

When adding wireless functionality, the two approaches generally available include using a system-on-a-chip (SoC) or a module. The SoC is lower cost, but comes with various unknowns of how to design it into a product. Using a module removes some of those unknowns but can drive the cost up. So what’s the easiest, most cost-effective way to add wireless? Here we’ll examine the various cost trade offs.
