Silex Technology America Introduces Third Generation SDIO Card for Low-Power Wi-FI Connectivity

Silex Technology, a global leader in wired and wireless networking solutions, today launched the SX-SDCAN SDIO card based on Qualcomm Atheros AR6003 WLAN technology. Unlike other radio modules, the SX-SDCAN is mechanically designed in an SD card form factor providing an upgrade path for existing Silex customers to take advantage of 802.11n Wi-Fi technology while offering new customers a vendor-independent form factor.

The SX-SDCAN supports 802.11a/b/g/n to leverage the 5GHz band for applications requiring relatively interference-free bandwidth. Added features including antenna diversity and Silex-provided software (driver and security supplicant) offer users the highest reliability and security. The Qualcomm Atheros AR6003 WLAN chipset has been designed to optimize power consumption with the smallest form factor making the SX-SDCAN ideal for low-power battery operated mobile devices such as medical devices, printers and other portable devices.

The SX-SDCAN SDIO card offers the highest product quality through design and production validation. RF-related design efforts and costs are reduced for SX-SDCAN customers because it has been tested to perform to IEEE standards. In addition, Silex Technology tests each module individually ensuring each of its products performs to the published specification. Lastly, the SX-SDCAN has FCC, CE and Telec modular certifications eliminating the need for re-testing intentional radio radiation for regulatory approval.

The SX-SDCAN samples are now available for evaluation. Silex Technology also provides an evaluation kit which includes a sample radio driver and tools to test basic wireless functionality, throughput and RF characteristics.
