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 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 HealthSuite Digital Platform (HSDP)
  • 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, 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 Engineering Solutions 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)
  • Software platform and firmware
  • Wi-Fi chip

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
