When It Absolutely Must Connect

Ultra-Reliable Connectivity Solutions for Your Wireless Devices

Always-On Connectivity

As Wi-Fi-enabled devices are increasingly used in the medical, industrial, and automotive markets by companies such as GE Healthcare, Motorola, and General Motors, who need their solutions to work every single time. Today’s consumer-oriented technologies are not suitable for the always-on network demands of many critical enterprise environments. Thus, we have spent decades reshearcing and developing technology geared toward providing zero downtime as part of our “Absolutely Must Connect” approach.


Hardware

Solutions to Meet Your Connectivity Needs

Silex Technology has a wide range of solutions to address your specific needs, including embedded wireless serial/Ethernet to Wi-Fi radio modules, System-in-Package (SiP’s), wireless infrastructure, Ethernet to Wi-Fi bridges, Wi-Fi Access Points, Device Networking, USB to Wi-Fi device server, serial to Wi-Fi device servers, AV networking, interactive display networking, and digital signage connectivity.

Premier Quality

Most of the commonly available wireless modules are based on the radio vendor’s recommended reference design. At Silex Technology, we go beyond this limitation. With our profound understanding of Qualcomm Atheros radios and our own RF design know-how, we design our wireless modules to confirm to IEEE industry standards while maximizing peak performance levels within the legally allowed regulatory guideline. The end result is our value-added hardware that provides reliable connectivity and optimized performance.

Wireless Expertise

Although you might think that 802.11 performance is the same for all wireless modules, it turns out that this is not the case. There is a definite expertise required for designing wireless devices, so even products based on the same standard reference design using the same chip set can have different performance characteristics.

Software

Optimized Radio Driver

We start with the Qualcomm Atheros reference driver and goes through a process to test, evaluate, fix and enhance before releasing as a Silex Technology driver. We have internally established a DVT test plan that goes far beyond a simple AP-client connect test or range performance test but includes complex multi-parameter testing and AP roaming tests.

Enterprise Security

Our wireless solutions offer enterprise-level security with support for the most common encryption and EAP authentication methods, have validated interoperability with enterprise access points, and also offer Cisco CCXv4 ASD support.

Driver Development and Porting

We can help develop and port drivers to your custom platforms. Our wireless experts customize reliable network connectivity to your specific requirements and support you from design through deployment.

Manufacturing

State-of-the-Art Manufacturing

We are a one-stop shop with in-house manufacturing capabilities. With Silex Technology, you get a single vendor that provides hardware and software support from design through manufacturing. Our facility is ISO certified, producing high-quality hardware.

Process Control

One of the most important aspects of qualify manufacturing is the testing process. Silex Technology excels in this area with a unique internally developed test process. This process is used for product testing and calibration and is based on the ART (Atheros Radio Test) source code. Each radio module is tested and calibrated before delivery.

Adherence to the Highest Quality Standards

With relentless attention to quality, exclusive access to Qualcomm Atheros expertise, in-house manufacturing, and strategic partnerships with leading real-time operating system (RTOS) and semiconductor providers, we are the trusted leader in reliable connectivity solutions.
