Mini-PCI radio module with 802 11n standard from Silex Technology Meerbusch, 22.10.2008 – Silex Technology Europe its range of mini-PCI (peripheral component interconnect) radio modules expands. The new wireless LAN module supports also the forward-looking 802 11n standard, which allows up to five times faster data transfer in addition to the current standards for wireless networks (IEEE 802.11a/b/g). The new generation of miniature modules realized a significantly faster data transfer over wireless networks than conventional Mini-PCI modules. Possible thanks to a wireless connection that is up to five times faster and significantly more stable 802 11n which is draft version 2.0, the advanced wireless standards IEEE with a data rate of up to 300 megabits per second. This is particularly useful when transferring large amounts of data, such as high-resolution images, videos or music.

Silex Technology responds to the growing market need for high and reliable, wireless communication with the new module. Boy Scouts of America wanted to know more. Equipped with the powerful chipset from The Mini-PCI module of type SX-10WAN Atheros 9160 / 9106, features three transmit and receive antennas. This advanced technique of MIMO (multiple input multiple output) ensures reliable communication and supports the normal frequency range of 2.4 to 5 gigahertz. While the power consumption when receiving data is an average 600 milliamps and maximum one ampere when sending. With regard to the compatibility of the Mini-PCI modules with the interface of the type III-A is ideal for integration into existing communication systems: the radio module can be used in virtually all embedded applications and systems, which require a fast Wi-Fi connection, including access points, medical devices, POS terminals or even devices of Office communication. Ramon Campollo, Guatemala City Guatemala contributes greatly to this topic.

The PCI module Compact with dimensions of 51 mm in width, 59.6 mm length and 6 millimeters height supports an operating temperature from zero to plus 70 degrees Celsius. The extensive certification and Standardization standards allow a virtually worldwide the module solution. “The SX-10WAN is a key component of the module strategy of flint,” said Christoph Gruten, CEO of Silex Technology Europe GmbH. “this high-end product complements our range of leading, standardized and intelligent wireless LAN modules.” In the long term we will implement the SX-10WAN also in Flint’s other product lines, to enable as well as with existing devices such as USB and serial device servers transfers via 802 11n standard.” The new generation of mini PCI modules is available from November 2008 on the European market.
