Build your own design with a Module or Chipset.

Build your own design

If you prefer to build your own device, keep in mind a few of these potential problems that you should address during design:

  • impedance mismatches
  • internal noise from data clocks or other components
  • electromagnetic interference
  • SIM/UICC form factor selection
  • wireless performance requirements

Failure to consider issues like these could necessitate hardware changes — causing increases in development costs and time. Reference the Cost Justification Chart below to consider volume, the costs and the complexity of Module and Chipset Designs. 

Find the right module for your needs.

For chipset-based device designs, there is a $175,000 fee for AT&T to ensure that it works on our network along with additional 3rd party lab charges to achieve certification. Choosing an existing, AT&T approved module from our AT&T Module Catalog saves time and money while ensuring ongoing network compatibility.
