SX-SDPGN System-in-Package (SiP)

802.11b/g/n SDIO System-in-Package (SiP)

The SX-SDPGN is an 802.11b/g/n radio/baseband SDIO System-in-Package (SiP) designed specifically for low power embedded applications.

Top Features:

  • Lowest cost 802.11b/g/n implementation
  • Smallest footprint for space constrained devices
  • Very low power consumption for battery powered devices


The Silex SX-SDPGN (Qualcomm Atheros AR6103) is a third-generation Wireless LAN solution, featuring 802.11n for portable electronics devices. Based on the game-changing AR6003 Wireless LAN chip, the SX-SDPGN brings 802.11n throughput, range and power efficiency to portable devices including patient monitors, printers, handheld terminals and more.

The SX-SDPGN is a System-in-Package (SiP) designed to be mounted directly on the device PCBA. This design approach minimizes cost by eliminating extra materials (i.e. PCB and connectors) and labor associated with a radio module or card.

Features and Benefits:

  • IEEE 802.11b/g/n 2.4 GHz
  • Integrated CMOS Eā€‘cient Power Ampli­er (EPA™), LNA
  • Adaptive radio biasing for low-power or high-performance modes
  • Industry-leading receive sensitivity
  • No external EEPROM required for RF calibration
  • Integrated RISC processor
  • Support for industry standard QoS schemes (802.11e, WMM, WMM-PS)
  • Hardware accelerated security, including WAPI (China)
  • High RBOM integration enables design flexibility and lowest cost
  • Smallest foot print for space constrained devices
  • Direct antenna connection eliminates the need for complicated RF tuning and calibration
