New Silex SX-560 Enables Enterprise 802.11 Wireless Connectivity for Battery Operated Devices

Intelligent Wireless Module Combines Linux, Security, and Low Power


TUSTIN, Calif., May 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Silex Technology today announced the SX-560, an intelligent high-performance module designed for connecting devices that require low power consumption to 802.11a/b/g wireless local area networks (WLANs). It is ideal for mobile OEM applications that need WLAN connectivity with minimal power usage, such as battery-operated portable devices in the medical, industrial, weights and measures, and other industries.

Measuring just 1.35 x 1.95 inches (34.3 x 49.5 mm), the SX-560 features a powerful 32-bit 200MHz RISC processor with an 802.11a/b/g radio and a complete TCP/IP network protocol stack. One major advantage of the SX-560 is its enterprise security, including WPA2 with 802.1X authentication, which enables it to be used on almost any customer's network without any security compromises. Another key SX-560 advantage is a full-featured Linux operating system that allows OEMs to easily offload requirements such as protocol conversion or data filtering using standard C programming.

The SX-560 is designed to connect to a wide range of OEM devices without the need for special software drivers or interface hardware. It includes two serial ports that can each run at speeds up to 921.6Kbps. For additional flexibility, a 25MHz SPI port and a 12Mbps USB 1.1 port are also available.

"The SX-560 further strengthens our leadership position in enabling WLAN capabilities on OEM devices," said Keith Sugawara, General Manager of Silex Technology America. "With its powerful RISC processor and its Linux programmability, combined with its low power consumption, the SX-560 is the clear leader in the intelligent serial device server module market."

The SX-560 will be available next month through Silex distribution channels for $120 suggested resale price.
