Silex Technology Releases its Latest Embedded Intelligent Wireless Module

The SX-582 is the next generation high-performance Serial/Ethernet to Wi-Fi embedded module that provides dual band 802.11n wireless connectivity

 Santa Ana, CA., January 31, 2017 – Silex Technology America, Inc., a global leader in wired and wireless networking solutions released the SX-582, a high-performance Serial/Ethernet to Wi-Fi embedded module, based on the Qualcomm Atheros AR6234 system in package (SiP) solution, that provides dual band 802.11n wireless connectivity for device manufacturers who want to add robust and secure Wi-Fi.

“Eliminating the need for the development of a wireless LAN driver and security supplicant is ideal for minimizing upfront engineering investment and reducing time to market,” said Babar Hashim, product marketing manager at Silex. “The SX-582’s modular certi­fications for North America, Europe and Japan also reduce certi­fication costs for OEMs.”

 The SX-582 features a 32-bit 454 MHz Freescale i.MX28 processor with an 802.11a/b/g/n radio, a complete TCP/IP network protocol stack, and an optimized QCA6004 wireless radio driver and security supplicant in a self-contained hardware package. A major advantage of the SX-582 is enterprise security, including WPA2 with 802.1x authentication, which enables it to be used on almost any customer’s network without compromising security. We have also added multi-client bridge support to the product as a standard feature.
