    Disable WiFi by soldering resistor before U.Fl connector on Edison Compute Module

      My requirements are to physically disable the WiFi and Blu-tooth signals in a way that does not allow the signals to radiate from the board.  Removing the Broadcom 43340 chip is an option *if* that is an option that does not break the board other than WiFi/Blu-tooth.  My initial thoughts are to cut the traces just before the U.Fl connector on the compute module and solder in a 50ohm resistor of sufficient wattage to dissipate any possible signals before they reach the U.Fl or on board antenna. 

       

      Any thoughts on this?
