Hi Greg, the Murata module does not contain an embedded antenna and does not support 11n either. But you are right, it contains the CC3000, even though that makes the Murata module much more power hungry. The EFM32 is just awesome to work with!

This module is smaller http://www.murata-ws.com/datastore/media/wifi_vk_ds.pdf
It's also a complete embedded WiFi module, based on the new CC3000 SoC from TI (no 11n support though). That said, I'd much rather have an EFM32 to play with.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
