Silex Technology uses the company’s Wi-Fi silicon to create easy-to-implement solutions for the broader NXP customer base.

History of Embedded Wireless Success. Silex Technology has a long history of providing embedded wireless technology for products deployed in some of the most complex and demanding enterprise environments. Our hardware, software and support minimize implementation variables and establish a single point for accountability.

Add NXP Recommended Wi-Fi


Superior Technology. The Silex Technology SX-SDCAN, a low-power SDIO form factor wireless radio module, was specifically designed for the NXP i.MX 6 evaluation platform. Built on the field-proven Qualcomm Atheros AR6003 802.11a/b/g/n radio, the SX-SDCAN is the only NXP-recommended wireless connectivity solution for i.MX 6.

Integrated Radio Software Support. Design engineers can easily implement the SX-SDCAN with NXP i.MX 6 evaluation platforms, which include the Wi-Fi driver and security supplicant software. No engineering development is required to get started with your wireless evaluation on the i.MX 6 platform.

Faster Time to Market. 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 your development process, getting your product on the shelves before your competitor's.

Implement Trusted Connectivity


Reliable Wi-Fi. The SX-SDCAN is individually power calibrated and 100% production tested to ensure reliable, high-performance, single-stream, 2.4GHz/5GHz dual-band Wi-Fi. As a low-power solution, SX-SDCAN is an ideal embedded wireless choice for battery-driven portable products including medical and industrial applications.

Secure Products. Wi-Fi security continues to be a concern as more devices add wireless connectivity. Silex Technology wireless solutions offer enterprise-level security with support for the most common encryption and EAP authentication methods, and have validated interoperability for the most common enterprise access points.

Full Pre-/Post-Integration Support. Silex Technology provides support assistance during the integration process to help our customers get to market, and will troubleshoot post-sale field problems. Silex Technology can also provide an enhanced driver/supplicant for a single-vendor wireless solution.

Silex Technology offers several options for SDIO single-band and dual-band wireless solutions ranging from an SDIO Card to SDIO Modules and SDIO Systems-in-Packages (SiPs), all based on the proven Qualcomm Atheros AR6003 chip technology.

SDIO Wireless Card. The SX-SDCAN is mechanically designed in an SD card form factor as a complete, easy-to-use solution that adds wireless connectivity to products in the design evaluation phase.

  • SX-SDCAN: Dual-band 802.11a/b/g/n and Bluetooth SDIO combination card
  • Looking for more resources? Check out the Silex Technology application note. Learn more in the White Paper.

SDIO Wireless Modules. These modules minimize RF design integration, reduce certification costs and future-proof designs by separating the radio from the device PCBA.

  • SX-SDMAN: Dual-band 802.11a/b/g/n and Bluetooth SDIO combination module
  • SX-SDMGN: Single-band 802.11b/g/n SDIO module

SDIO Wireless SiPs. These 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 space-constrained devices. SiPs are only available through silex technology america

  • SX-SDPAN: Dual-band 802.11a/b/g/n and Bluetooth SDIO combination SiP
  • SX-SDPGN: Single-band 802.11b/g/n SDIO SiP
