    Default Cheapest Wifi setup for embedded device

    One of my clients is looking for small boxes which are connected to Wireless in their own little Wireless network.

    I was initially looking at pic18f + microchip solution but recently this has caught my eye

    5 USD + 24 USD ( Core components )

    29USD with ARM 7 @ 44 Mhz ( SoC )

    Costing comes out almost equal , what do you guys think ... worth looking into a new chip ?

    seems good under 1500, but only concern is supply if your thing become hit or they discontinued it after your POC then you have to find a exact alternative.

    Yes after some thinking , i went with microchip ... they have been quite reliable and easy to source parts from.
