Munich, Germany – Silex Technology announced its new SX-10WAN 802.11n/a/b/g module for embedded wireless applications. This Mini PCI Type IIIA module supports the rapidly emerging 802.11n Draft 2.0 standard, which was designed for substantially improving the performance of wireless LAN (WLAN) networks. The 300 Mbit/s maximum date rate of 802.11n is five times as fast as the current 802.11a/g wireless LAN standards. The higher performance of the module combined with its quality of service (QOS) support enables the rapid transmission of high-resolution images, video, music and other high-volume data applications.

Based on the Atheros 9160/9106 chipset, the module is equipped with MIMO (multiple-input and multiple-output) 3X3 smart antenna technology to ensure high-speed and stable communications. It operates in both the 5GHz and 2.4GHz bands, and it supports 802.11a/b/g for compatibility with existing wireless LAN equipment. It can be used in almost any embedded application that requires high speed wireless LAN connectivity, including access points, medical devices, point of sale terminals, printers, and much more. It is certified for operation in the United States, Europe, and Japan.
