Chipsets: Understanding the Main Building Block in a Beacon
If you are a proximity solutions provider considering whether or not to create your own beacons, understanding the different chipsets you can use is essential. That being said, those wanting only to write an app that uses beacon APIs don’t really need to understand anything about the chipset inside the Bluetooth beacon. Therefore, this chapter is targeted at people who are selecting which type of beacon to deploy, or who want to convey to their colleagues the sense that they understand the beacosystem. For them, it will be a good idea to learn about the chipsets that are the engines driving this ecosystem.
