SILEX TECHNOLOGY ANNOUNCES FIRST WI-FI 6E SOLUTION FOR EMBEDDED MEDICAL AND INDUSTRIAL IOT DEVICES
SANTA ANA, Calif., Jan. 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Silex Technology, a global leader in wired and wireless networking solutions, announced the introduction and availability of its new wireless LAN module, SX-PCEAX, on January 6, 2022. The SX-PCEAX includes the latest Wi-Fi 6E standard to expand into the 6 GHz spectrum for unprecedented Wi-Fi communications performance, stability, and efficiency. Designed for improved communications in highly-congested environments, the new Wi-Fi 6E module delivers the critical reliability, efficiency, and performance needed to expand IoT devices in factories, warehouses, and medical facilities. Built on the latest Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 standards, the SC-PCEAX is available in three form factors - M.2, Mini PCI Express, and surface-mount - all of which will obtain module certification in Japan, North America, and Europe. The SX-PCEAX is available immediately for design evaluation and prototyping using NXP and Nvidia enablement platforms. Mass production and shipping will begin in March 2022.
Wi-Fi 6 Functionality with 6 GHz Performance
The Wi-Fi 6E standard moves Wi-Fi communications into the 6GHz spectrum where legacy devices operating in 2.4 and 5 GHz cannot negatively impact the network performance. Customers designing medical and industrial devices can now jump to Wi-Fi 6E for better performance, less crowded networks, and a longer lifecycle for their designs.
"It is common to find a mix of legacy clients operating on the Wi-Fi network, making the network sub-optimal. Legacy clients are inefficient, and the overhead needed to maintain backward compatibility contributes to further efficiency losses," said Mr. Pape, Master Specialist FO Wireless at Phoenix Contact. "Wi-Fi 6E does not only make the new products future-proof, but it also does away with the complexities of the past by limiting access to only Wi-Fi 6 and newer protocols in the 6 GHz band. Coupling the Wi-Fi 6 protocol with Wi-Fi 6E spectrum will allow Wi-Fi 6 abilities to shine in a greenfield installation."
