Developing a New Wireless Hardware Product? – Here’s Your Most Important Decision
Article Technical Rating: 9 out of 10
When developing a new wireless product there is one decision that matters most. This decision not only affects technical specifications like transmission range, battery life, signal quality and product size, but it also dictates where you can even sell the product.
This priority one decision that you must make as early as possible is the selection of the carrier frequency. This is the frequency of the signal that is used to “carry” the data from one device to another. Granted an electrical engineer will be needed for this process, but any entrepreneur or startup developing a wireless product should also understand the process at a high level.
