802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Serial Device Server / Ethernet Wi-Fi bridge
The SX-590-1402 is Silex’s latest FIPS 140-2 high-performance Serial/Ethernet to Wi-Fi module that provides connectivity for low-power portable devices to 802.11 wireless local area networks (WLANS).
The SX-590-1402 is Silex’s latest FIPS 140-2 high-performance Serial/Ethernet to Wi-Fi module that provides connectivity for low-power portable devices to 802.11 wireless local area networks (WLANS) allowing OEMs to take "FIPS Inside" approach for FIPS product development. Eliminating the need for the development of a wireless LAN driver and security supplicant, it is ideal for minimizing upfront engineering investment and reducing time to market. The module has modular certifications for North America, Europe and Japan, thus reducing certification costs.
The SX-590-1402 is a FIPS 140-2 cryptographic module. It adds Wi-Fi interface to products aiming for US governmental facilities and agencies.
In FIPS 140-2 mode, Wi-Fi connection is established only through FIPS 140-2 certified WLAN authentication and WLAN data encryption with WPA2-PSK (AES).
In addition, the end-to-end application security is established by TLS encryption. Firmware are securely stored in the device and secure boot protects the device from booting up with unauthorized firmware image.
SX-590-1402 uses a low power CPU, i.MX 6ULL, which reduces the over all system power consumption. It also supports additional power management features which help reduce power usage during periods of inactivity.
The SX-590-1402 support various network connectivity models.
Serial connection over Wireless/Wired LAN
Wi-Fi infrastructure mode
An embedded serial port can be accessed through Wi-Fi access point.
Wi-Fi Access Point mode
The SX-590-1402 adds accessibility to an embedded serial port as an access point.
Wired LAN mode
The SX-590-1402 supports 10Base-T / 100Base-T interface to access to an embedded serial port.
