SX-582 - The Next Generation Embedded Intelligent Wireless Module

is a high-performance Serial/Ethernet to Wi-Fi embedded module, based on the Qualcomm Atheros AR6234 system in package (SiP) solution, that provides dual band 802.11n wireless connectivity for device manufacturers who want to add robust and secure Wi-Fi.

It features a 32-bit 454 MHz Freescale i.MX28 processor with an 802.11a/b/g/n radio, a complete TCP/IP network protocol stack, and an optimized QCA6004 wireless radio driver and security supplicant in a self-contained hardware package. A major advantage of the SX-582 is enterprise security, including WPA2 with 802.1x authentication, which enables it to be used on almost any customer’s network without compromising security. We have also added multi-client bridge support to the product as a standard feature.


This product is ideal for minimizing the upfront engineering investment and reducing time to market by eliminating the need for the development of a wireless LAN driver and security supplicant. Also the product has modular certifications for North America, Europe and Japan, thus also  reducing the  certi­fication costs for our OEM customers.
