Not all wireless modules are created equal. So it becomes very important that one chooses a good evaluation kit to evaluate and test the radio characteristics of the module. As one of 15 Qualcomm Atheros Authorized Design Centers (ADC), Silex Technology is one of the few companies in the world that is enabled with radio source code access. This allows us to make tweaks and modifications for reliability and performance that is not available to most of our competitors. We have made included our optimized and robust QCA9377 reference driver as part of the evaluation image to allow customers experience how a "When it Absolutely Must Connect" Wi-Fi performs.
On Tuesday we released our latest embedded Wi-Fi module, the SX-SDMAC. The SX-SDMAC is a dual-band, single stream, 802.11a/b/g/n/ac plus Bluetooth “Smart Ready” module based on the latest Qualcomm Atheros QCA9377 System-on-Chip (SoC). It is the industry's first Wave 2 MU-MIMO IEEE 802.11ac SDIO Wi-Fi module fully certified for North America, Europe, and Japan in full production. It delivers enterprise-grade, dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi connectivity with link rates as high as 433Mbps. Click here to view the full press release.
The SX-SDMAC is designed for mission-critical applications including industrial automation, healthcare, environmental monitoring, factory automation and telematics. Highly regulated industries like medical sometimes require long product life cycles. Silex can address such customer needs by offering the option to continue manufacturing our products like the SX-SDMAC for extended periods of time in our own factory.
