Silex Technology, a global leader in wired and wireless networking solutions, today announced plug-and-play Wi-Fi connectivity solutions for Freescale Semiconductor i.MX 6 series processors. This technology combination which includes the Silex SX-SDCAN-2830BT was demonstrated at the Freescale Technology Forum June 18 -20, 2012 in San Antonio, Texas.

“Wi-Fi connectivity is a key feature for customers designing products based on our i.MX 6 series processors," said Rajeev Kumar, i.MX product line manager for Freescale Semiconductor. "Silex delivers outstanding technology engineered to help our i.MX 6 customers differentiate and win in competitive markets.”

“Silex is proud to be the Freescale recommended Wi-Fi solutions provider," said Keith Sugawara, vice president of Business Development at Silex Technology America. "Our radio hardware modules are ideal for mid-tier companies who seek to reduce RF design costs and improve time to market."

Silex is a Qualcomm Atheros Authorized Design Center (ADC) who provides secure and high-reliability wireless solutions for device manufacturers that want to add Wi-Fi connectivity to portable devices for medical, printer, weights and measures, and other applications.

The Silex SX-SDCAN-2830BT 802.11a/b/g/n SDIO card module is the Freescale recommended solution for Wi-Fi connectivity. Freescale's i.MX 6 development platforms integrate a reference driver to minimize the engineering time and effort required to productize solutions such as Silex’s Wi-Fi technology.

To provide developers the best connectivity and superior engineering support, Silex  offers a turnkey, one-vendor solution that includes:
  •     Driver software available with Freescale i.MX6 development systems
