Linux Evaluation for SX-SDMAC/SX-SDPAC with Roaming Support

Posted by Babar Hashim on 2017-09-28 00:10:26

 Our SX-SDCAC which is in a SD card form factor (using the SX-SDMAC) is designed to allow evaluation of our QCA9377 based radios (SX-SDMAC and SX-SDPAC)) with the NXP's i.MX 6 SoloX Sabre SD board. To go with the hardware we also provide an evaluation software to make the evaluation process easy for our customers. 

We have just released an update to our evaluation software.

Summary of Updates:

 We have updated to support Linux kernel version 4.1. The most important enhancement in this release is the addition of roaming support.  We in our internal testing had found that roaming was not working well in the QCA reference driver. Silex being a QCA partner has access to the radio firmware source code which enables us to fix bugs and in some cases even add features to the driver. Our reference driver now supports roaming with roam times under 150msec. 

The evaluation image includes the Silex reference radio driver (with roaming support), supplicant and tools to test the following:

  • Basic Wireless Functionality
  • Advanced Wi-Fi Security
  • Data Throughput
  • Soft Access Point Mode
  • DHCP Server and Client
