Wi-Fi module reference design
When you develop a connected product for the first time, you face many new challenges:
- How to connect to the Philips HealthSuite Digital Platform (HSDP)?
- How to integrate the relevant Connected Digital Platforms & Propositions (CDP²) platform components with your product?
- How to adhere to safety, security, and privacy requirements?
- And how to do all this in a cost effective way without slowing down time to market or sacrificing quality?
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
