Silex Teams up with Qualcomm at Embedded World

Embedded World

Silex Technology is teaming up with Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. to exhibit at Embedded World, a leading international fair for embedded systems held in Nuremberg, Germany, where almost 1000 exhibitors and more than 32,000 attendees gather annually from all parts of the world. As the authorized design center for Qualcomm Technologies, Silex Technology engineers will join Qualcomm experts at their booth to demonstrate the latest Wi-Fi technology and reference designs.

Among other technologies, Qualcomm will be showcasing their Tri-Mode module based on the Qualcomm® QCA4020 chip, which features Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Zigbee all packaged in the same chip. Silex will demonstrate premium Wi-Fi and Bluetooth modules for applications that require high concurrency by utilizing built-in sensors on the Qualcomm QCA4020 to drive interactive light shows.

With these new releases, customers can now bridge multiple radio technologies to each other, within a single SoC, making development simpler, quicker and lower cost. The compact form factor of the module enables the development of microGateways, providing full deployment of a Wi-Fi, BT and ZigBee network solution inside an enclosure smaller that an electrical plug.

In addition to reference designs from Qualcomm Technologies, several Silex Wi-Fi modules based on Qualcomm technology will be displayed at the booth, including:
