Hi, I'm developing an embedded system and must select integrated circuits (not modules) Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

In my initial research I found the CC2541 (bluetooth), but it has to be programmed and put a connector only for this in my product is not the best option, since I have little available space on the PCB.

Regarding Wi-Fi, I think about to use the ESP8266EX because the firmware update is possible via UART, I think about to use the host microcontroller for this.

My questions are:
1- They would have suggestions as to bluetooth?
2- What I suggested to the wi-fi is viable or have other alternatives?

Thank you in advance,
