Telecom Lead America: Silex Technology, a provider of
wired and wireless networking solutions, has unveiled the third-generation
SX-SDCAN SDIO card based on Qualcomm Atheros AR6003 WLAN technology.
The Qualcomm Atheros AR6003 WLAN chipset has been
designed to optimize power consumption with the smallest form factor, which the
company believes makes the SX-SDCAN ideal for low-power battery operated mobile
devices such as medical devices, printers and other portable devices.
The SX-SDCAN is mechanically designed in an SD
card form factor that provides an upgrade path for existing Silex customers to
take advantage of 802.11n Wi-Fi technology.
Furthermore, the company said that the
SX-SDCAN offers new customers a vendor-independent form factor, which is
unlikely in other radio modules.
The new radio module by Silex supports 802.11a/b/g/n to
use the 5GHz band for applications requiring relatively interference-free
The SX-SDCAN offers features such as antenna
diversity. Silex-provided software (driver and security supplicant) offer
users the highest reliability and security.
The company claims that the SX-SDCAN SDIO card offers the
highest product quality through design and production validation.
In addition, Silex Technology tests each module
individually ensuring each of its products performs to the published
specification. Also, the company said that the SX-SDCAN has FCC, CE and Telec
modular certifications that eliminate the need for re-testing intentional radio
radiation for regulatory approval.
The company said that its SX-SDCAN samples are now
available for evaluation.
