Enterprise 802.11n Connectivity for Battery Operated Devices

The SX-570/SX-580 high-performance intelligent modules are connecting portable devices that require low-power consumption to 802.11 wireless local area networks (WLANS). Eliminating the need for the development investment of the wireless LAN driver and security supplicant, it is ideal for OEM applications that need WLAN connectivity with minimal power usage, such as battery operated devices for medical, printer, weights and measures and other applications.

Measuring 1.18 x 2.16 inches (30 x 55 mm), the SX-570/SX-580 features a powerful 32-bit 454MHz Freescale i.MX28 processor with an 802.11a/b/g/n radio a complete TCP/IP network protocol stack and an optimised AR6003 wireless radio driver and security supplicant in a self-contained hardware package. One major advantage of the SX-570/SX580 is enterprise security, including WPA2 with 802.1x authentication, which enables it to be used on almost any customer’s network without security compromises. Another key SX-570/SX-580 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-570/SX-580 is designed to connect to a wide range of OEM devices without the need for special software drivers or interface hardware. It includes a serial port that can each run at speeds up to 3Mbps and supports Ethernet bridging.

Key Features

  • Based on Qualcomm Atheros AR6003. This game is changing chip technology enables the SX-570/SX-580 to provide breakthrough performance at the lowest cost.
  • Reduced power consumption. The SX-570/SX580 uses minimum amount of power during transmitting and receiving and its power management reduces power usage during periods of inactivity.
  • Serial or Ethernet to Wi-Fi. In addition to standard serial connectivity, the SX-570/SX-580 can be configured as a transparent bridge. This allows an Ethernet device to communicate wirelessly with no modifications required to your existing software.
  • Industry-leading enterprise security including WPA, WPA2,WEP plus 802.1x authentication. The SX-570/SX-580 features the most extensive wireless security in the industry, including 802.1x Extensible Authentication protocol (EAP) with all the major EAP types and WPA2, WPA2-PSK, WPA, WPA-PSK and WEP wireless security.
  • Linux operating system with user programmability. The SX-570/SX-580 uses Linux operating system and is designed to allow users to easily add new features. With a 454MHz processor and 16MB of RAM and 8MB of flash memory, the SX-570 /SX-580 has plenty of capacity to handle complex user applications.
