A Low Cost Hostless Wi-Fi Module for the Internet of Things

SX-ULPGN_module_image_-border.pngSilex Technology has released the SX-ULPGN, a new ultra-low-power Wi-Fi module for IoT.  The module's hostless option provides the lowest system cost for customers as an external MCU is not required for their system design.

Both the hardware and software of the SX-ULPGN is based on QCA4010 reference design from Qualcomm Atheros. It is ideal for embedded wireless products including smart homes & smart cities, factory automation, appliances, security, sensors, wearables, health, remote control, remote sensing, etc. The SX-ULPGN-EVK is now available from Arrow for evaluating the radio module.
