SX-SDMGN Radio Module

802.11b/g/n SDIO Radio Module

The SX-SDMGN is an 802.11b/g/n radio/baseband SDIO Module designed specifically for low power embedded applications. The radio module design approach also saves cost as the SX-SDMGN provides FCC/MIC modular certification. 

Top Features:

  • Highest quality product (design and production validation)
  • FCC/MIC modular certification
  • Upgrade path for dual-band solutions


The Silex SX-SDMGN is a single-band 802.11b/g/n SDIO module that is based on the SX-SDPGN (Qualcomm Atheros AR6103). The SX-SDMGN brings 802.11n throughput, range and power efficiency to portable devices including patient monitors, printers, handheld terminals and more. The SX-SDMGN optimizes RF output performance from the SiP out through the antenna which significantly decreases any downstream RF related design integration. The radio module design approach also saves cost as the SX-SDMGN provides FCC/MIC modular certification.

Features and Benefits:

  • IEEE 802.11b/g/n conformity (2.4 GHz)
  • Single stream 1 x 1 SISO technology and 20 MHz bandwidth mode (throughput up to 72.2 Mbps)
  • Data rates of 1 - 54 Mbps for 802.11b/g and MCS0-7 for 802.11n
  • Supports IEEE802.11e and IEEE802.11i
  • Supports SDIO 2.0 as host IF of wireless LAN
  • Optionally supports Tx/Rx software selection diversity for wireless LAN mode
  • Supports TDMA/FDMA Bluetooth coexistence
  • Calibrated Tx Power per module
  • FCC/IC/MIC modular certification
  • Connector mount
