[Platform : BCM943362WCD4]

I would like to remove the FET for VDD_3V3_WIFI to reduce BOM costs.

In BCM943362WCD4_P200.pdf, the FET is described as Q1.

Is it okay to remove this?

Yes, it is ok to remove the FET and connect the WLAN power pins to 3V3 directly.

The FET is there so the MCU can cut power entirely to the WLAN to save power.
