Make or buy?

Sure you make a complete board with microcontroller and transceiver on it, so what are the overall benefits to use FlyportPRO?

A carrier board for FlyportPRO is normally very simple (only passive components) since the complexity is on our module.
You can offer your customers 3 models of your product and for you it's just one simple carrier board.
You have not the high stock cost of having 3 different products. You just keep in stock the carrier board and you buy the right FlyportPRO model according to your market needs.
Each model of FlyportPRO have the same micro onboard: porting of your code couldn't be easier.
FlyportPRO is reliable and already applied in hundreds of products.
FlyportPRO is CE certified: this will reduce a lot the certification of your product.

Let's go a little into details, what FlyportPRO provides you?
