Add Ultra Low Power WiFi Using UART AT Command Set

Posted by Safi Khan on August 4, 2017

Silex has released a new version (12.2.x) of our UART AT Command Set for Qualcomm's Ultra Low Power WiFi IoT Soc QCA4010. Our new product is called SX-ULPGN-EVK-AT. The SX-ULPGN-EVK-AT is an evaluation kit for our SX-ULPGN module based on the QCA4010. 

Using our new SX-ULPGN-EVK-AT, customers can quickly evaluate our AT Command Set. They can add a serial-to-Wi-Fi converter for their existing MCU based designs without porting any host driver. SX-ULPGN can offload the host MCU by performing all of the Wi-Fi related tasks such as low power WiFi network stack, security, and authentication.
