How to add Wi-Fi to NXP i.MX 6

Step by step instructions on how to enable Wi-Fi connectivity for your i.MX 6 Platform.


Silex Technology offers several options for SDIO single-band and dual-band wireless solutions ranging from an SDIO Card to SDIO Modules and SDIO Systems-in-Packages (SiPs), all based on the proven Qualcomm Atheros AR6003 chip technology.

SDIO Radio Card

The SX-SDCAN is mechanically designed in an SD card form factor as a complete, easy-to-use solution that adds wireless connectivity to products in the design evaluation phase.

  • SX-SDCAN: Dual-band 802.11a/b/g/n and Bluetooth SDIO combination card

SDIO radio Modules

These modules minimize RF design integration, reduce certification costs and future-proof designs by separating the radio from the device PCBA.

  • SX-SDMAN: Dual-band 802.11a/b/g/n and Bluetooth SDIO combination module
  • SX-SDMGN: Single-band 802.11b/g/n SDIO module

SDIO SiP (system-in-package)

These SiPs are ideal for high-volume, low-cost wireless LAN applications. Engineers can mount an SiP directly on the device PCBA, providing the smallest footprint possible for space-constrained devices.

  • SX-SDPAN: Dual-band 802.11a/b/g/n and Bluetooth SDIO combination SiP
  • SX-SDPGN: Single-band 802.11b/g/n SDIO SiP
