Is possible buy only BCM43362 chip without host  stm32?

Now for test , in future for production.

I biuld very small accessories for homekit apple standard. Today i try localise in web distribution . No success.  In my project i need many IO  pin port . Now i test bcm943362wcd4eval and this eval is no eval for me. This board has no free port on pcb. I need connect:

relay,

led diodes,

power meter,

temperature control,

OLED display i2c controlled

external flash memory for data

switch on/off/configure

All modules as bcm943362wcd4 , murata sn8000 is to big.

, and more. My decision is build my version eval board for my project. where i buy bcm43362 chips without pcb ?? Mouser.com replay me - not offer this module.

SN8000 is the Radio Only version of 43362. We have this blog to get you some GPIO control on WCD4 board.

Re-purpose GPIO in Evaluation Board To Drive Motors

Inventek has some "radio only" modules too.

Hi,

Yes, each WiFi module with antenna have a different form factor and they may not work for your application, 

For BCM43362 SiP please contact your local Broadcom sales representative, Manufacturer's Representatives | Broadcom. If you like Wifi modules with and without antennas, please contact Broadcom WICED partners, Partners.

How about this one,

Communication Misc bcm43362 Parts - Avnet Express

But I think, if you use only BCM43362 chip, you also have to design own antenna and get own certification. And as seyhan mention, WiFi module with antenna have a different form factor. To design a efficient antenna, you need to have enough knowledge on antenna design.
