Modules & SoCs

Richardson RFPD provides a broad range of IoT wireless connectivity products, from low cost embedded modules to full-function gateway solutions designed to address diverse applications, such as public safety, oil and gas, utility, mobile data, transportation, medical, and the transaction processing markets.

IoT System on Chips (SoC) are complex devices that include processing, memory, and radios which work together to enable RF connectivity. IoT modules are design and size optimized embedded devices, containing one or more SoC, that provide wireless connectivity to a network. IoT modules may consist of one or more wireless protocols such as Cellular, LTE, 5G, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi. Companies can accelerate their time to market faster by using IoT modules and can future proof their designs with footprint compatible module families.
