You Don't Need Mixed-Signal/RF Knowledge to Add A Radio onto A Chip

Due to the recent availabilty of pre-qualified, EDA agnostic, complete design kits (or hard macros), you don't need a team of RF engineers undertaking tedious physical integration to get radio onto a chip. These IoT sub-systems offer the quickest way forward for creating SoCs.

It's Possible to Get an IoT Endpoint Ready from Scratch in Just Three Months

With the help of pre-qualified IoT subsystems and open software platforms like mbed, it is possible to undertake rapid prototyping. An IoT endpoint can now be put together by three engineers in just three months! mbed has over 55 partners in its ecosystem, so it inherently ensures a high level of inter-operability for the design.
