The BlueBird-CDMA is a fully integrated wireless modem, which means you can use it out-of-the-box to add CDMA & 1xRTT functionality to your application. You optimize the use of your resources and reduce the time-to-market because we have built in the functionality and benefits that applications require. No need to "re-invent the wheel" by developing manufacturer-specific interfaces and functions required with "base" modules.
