There are several advantages of using a module over directly implementing a design at the chip level:
- Rigado's modules are pre-certified as a RF transmitter in many world regions. These include: USA (FCC), Canada (IC), European Union (CE), Japan (MIC), Australia (RCM), and New Zealand (RCM).
- Rigado's modules are tested and certified with the Bluetooth SIG. A Bluetooth SIG listing then only consists of a "declaration" that identifies the Rigado and Nordic Semiconductor IDs.
- Antenna design and selection, RF tuning and optimization
- Rigado has highly experienced RF engineers and the proper test equipment to optimize the RF design for each module and create PCB layout recommendations.
- Decrease development time
- Rigado has already invested the time required to provide the items above. You can "hit the ground running" and get an end product to market much faster.
