Silex Technology Named Freescale Proven Partner for Embedded Wi-Fi Technology
SANTA ANA, CA, Feb 19, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Silex Technology, a developer and OEM manufacturer of Wi-Fi
connectivity solutions today announced that it has been named a
Proven Partner in the Freescale Connect partner program. Silex
Technology is a proven manufacturer of Freescale-recommended Wi-Fi
connectivity technology for products based on the Freescale i.MX 6
series processor platform.
"Secure, reliable Wi-Fi connectivity is critical to many i.MX 6
customers," said P.Y. Ferrard, Freescale's vice president of sales
and marketing for Global Channel and Ecosystem Partners. "Freescale
customers can look forward to Silex Technology's exceptional
commitment to creating the best products possible with embedded Wi-Fi
Bringing Wireless Connectivity to Freescale i.MX 6 Series Customers
Silex Technology created the SX-SDCAN, a low-power 802.11a/b/g/n plus
Bluetooth 4.0 radio/baseband SDIO card module specifically for the
Freescale i.MX 6 series evaluation platform. The Freescale i.MX 6
series evaluation platform includes the Wi-Fi driver and security
supplicant for the SX-SDCAN. No engineering development is required
to get started with a wireless evaluation on the i.MX 6 series
"With the Silex SX-SDCAN, i.MX 6 series customers can add Wi-Fi
connectivity to their products and create more marketable devices,"
said Keith Sugawara, vice president of business development at Silex
America. "Silex Technology provides a turn-key, one-vendor solution
including pre- and post-integration support to help our customers get
to market quickly and troubleshoot post-sale field problems
Built on the field-proven Qualcomm Atheros AR6003 802.11a/b/g/n
radio, the SX-SDCAN is designed and validated to meet IEEE standards,
and has been modular certified to save regulatory costs for device
manufacturers. Using the SX-SDCAN for wireless connectivity
streamlines development process, getting products on the shelves
In addition to the SX-SDCAN, Silex Technology offers several options
for SDIO single-band and dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth solutions that
include SDIO modules and SDIO systems-in-packages (SiPs), all based
on the proven Qualcomm Atheros AR6003 chip technology:
-- SX-SDMAN and SX-SDMGN SDIO radio modules minimize RF design
integration, reduce certification costs, and future-proof designs by
separating the radio from the device PCBA.
-- SX-SDPAN and SX-SDPGN SDIO SiPs are ideal for high-volume, low-cost
wireless LAN applications. Engineers can mount an SiP directly on the
device PCBA, providing the smallest footprint possible for
Silex Technology has prior Freescale design experience with the
Freescale i.MX53 processors, and developed programmable, embedded
serial- or Ethernet-to-Wi-Fi modules based on the Freescale i.MX 28
processor. Freescale selects Proven Partners by invitation only for
their proven knowledge and experience to help Freescale customers
enable and implement total system solutions.
