Oct 5 2017  to   Nov 29 2017

Sponsored by Qualcomm Technologies, Silex and Arrow Electronics

Get hands-on experience with incorporating intelligent Wi-Fi in your designs using the latest low power WiFi technology from Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. This session will teach you the latest in using Wi-Fi for Hosted and Hostless IoT applications in embedded systems. Featured topics to include embedded security, root of trust, over-the-air updates, provisioning, and much more. Every participant in the labs will get an SX-ULPGN EVK-AT, and will include a step-by-step demonstration so you can learn how to build and deploy your own secure low-power IoT applications During the day, attendees will be able to do the following hands-on labs & demos:

  • Set up tools performing Over-the-Air updates (OTA)
  • Simplifying onboarding using Wi-Fi concurrency
  • Add Wi-Fi to your host MCU using AT commands
  • Converting an unsecured AP to a secured one
  • Setting up a secure socket layer

Add Ultra Low Power WiFi Using UART AT Command Set

Posted by Safi Khan on 2017-08-04 19:38:57

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.

Top Features:

JTAG OTA Programming Station and AP Modes
Open System WPA-PSK, WPA2-PSK None, WEP, TKIP, and AES(CCMP) Enrollee (PIN/PBC)
IPv4, IPv6, DNS, SNTP, HTTP SSL/TLS, DHCP, and WPS IEEE802.11 Power Save Mode
Suspend (Store Recall, Power Off Suspend(Sleep Wakeup, Host Deep Sleep) TCP/IP Offload
UDP Offload On-Boarding HTTP Server HTTP Client
DHCP Client and DHCP Server DNS Client and DNS Server Socket API for up to 4 UDP or TCP Client/Server Sockets
