  • Depending on the quantities to be produced, modules make sense for small runs where the fixed cost of PCB design and debugging won't be amortized across a large quantity and the unit cost for building small quantities will be higher than using modules. When the quantities increase beyond a certain point, the fixed costs for development become less significant and the unit cost is the main factor determining cost. This would favor a custom PCB and good assembly house to build it.

  • I made a pcb adapter board for this that you can order from Oshpark with parts from Digikey.

  • Yes, the v2 of IridiumSBD works with Rockblock 9603. I've used and don't recommend using the older version of the library.

  • Here is a link to an adapter board I made that can be purchased for $2.95 from Oshpark.

    This is the 10-pin PicoBlade connector to use:

    Here is a 2 inch long 10-pin PicoBlade cable to tie the adapter board to the RockBlock 9603:

No public wish lists :(
