Wi-Fi Module Reference Design

When you develop a connected product for the first time, you face many new challenges:

This is why we have developed the Wi-Fi module reference design: making fast and easy integration of connectivity in your product possible.

The Wi-Fi module reference design is not only hardware, it comes with:

  • Matching software that contains the embedded components from the CDP² platform
  • Technical product documentation (TPD) for design transfer to manufacturer
  • Factory tooling that allows for automated, secure production of modules for your particular product

How the Wi-Fi module design gets you to market faster

It is our aim to integrate the Wi-Fi chip as selected by CDP² with the CDP² software platform, the HSDP Philips cloud, and your product. The end-product is a not a simple Wi-Fi module, it is a connectivity node, ready for assembly in your product. It is not ‘just’ a bit of hardware as you can get from any supplier, it is a specific, customized connectivity node with your own specific firmware. Suitable for a secure connection to the back end, and with everything ready for assembly into your product. This saves you a lot of your own development time. The connectivity node comes with all documentation needed for market approval.

Technical blueprint for easy integration

Philips Innovation Services enables you to easily make your product connected with the Wi-Fi module reference design. This technical blueprint allows you to integrate your product with the:

  • Philips HealthSuite Digital Platform (HSDP)
  • CDP² software platform, including firmware
  • Wi-Fi chip selected by CDP²

Benefit directly from our experience with this developed, approbated, documented and extensively tested design.

Developed, approbated, documented and tested

With the Wi-Fi module reference design, complicated hardware design challenges like small pitch, antenna design, form factor are solved and firmware handling, security and testing are addressed:

  • The Wi-Fi module reference design is FCC, ETSI, SRRC and Wi-Fi Alliance certified
  • It is compliant with general safety, regulatory and security standards
  • It is backward compatible with previous Philips modules and upgradable for future extensions

Wi-Fi reference design in the Philips connectivity landscape

Philips Innovation Services & Wi-Fi reference design 

Our goal is to make it easy for Philips businesses to connect with the CDP² platform by: 1. delivering robust and secure connectivity solutions complementary to CDP² deliverables and 2. improving time to market, quality, cost of implementation and maintenance.

This is why we created the Wi-Fi module reference design. A technical blueprint to allow you to integrate your product with Philips HealthSuite Digital Platform (HSDP), CDP² software platform, and the CDP² selected Wi-Fi chip.

Connected Digital Platforms & Propositions (CDP²) 

The Wi-Fi module reference design is here to support CDP² connected propositions and to maximize the reuse of common components. The common architecture shortens development time, reduces cost, increases quality, speeds up time to market and accelerates your innovation.
