SX-582 (1x1)

802.11a/b/g/n Embedded Intelligent Wireless Modules

The SX-582 is the next generation high-performance Serial/Ethernet to Wi-Fi embedded module that provides dual band 802.11n wireless connectivity for device manufacturers who want to add robust and secure Wi-Fi.

Top Features:

  • Based on Qualcomm Atheros AR6004
  • Reduced power consumption
  • Serial or Ethernet to Wi-Fi
  • Industry-leading enterprise security including WPA, WPA2, WEP plus 802.1x authentication
  • Wi-Fi Protected Setup


The SX-582 is the next generation high-performance Serial/Ethernet to Wi-Fi module that provides connectivity for low-power portable devices to 802.11 wireless local area networks (WLANS). Eliminating the need for the development of a wireless LAN driver and security supplicant, it is ideal for minimizing upfront engineering investment and reducing time
to market.

They are ideal for OEM applications that need WLAN connectivity with minimal power usage, such as battery-operated portable devices for medical, printer, weights and measures, and other applications.

Features and Benefits:

  • Based on Qualcomm Atheros AR6004. This new technology from Qualcomm enables the SX-582 to provide 802.11n Wi-Fi performance with shorter time to market.
  • Reduced Power Consumption. SX-582 minimizes power while transmitting and receiving data (approximately 300mA) while its power management features reduce power usage during periods of inactivity.
  • Serial or Ethernet to Wi-Fi. In addition to standard serial connectivity, the SX-582 can be configured as a transparent bridge. This allows an Ethernet device to communicate wirelessly with no modifications required to your existing software.
  • Industry-leading enterprise security including WPA, WPA2, WEP plus 802.1x authentication. The SX-582 features the most extensive wireless security in the industry, including 802.1x Extensible Authentication protocol (EAP) with all the major EAP types and WPA2, WPA2-PSK, WPA, WPA-PSK and WEP wireless security.
  • Linux operating system with user programmability. The SX-582 uses the Linux operating system and users can easily add new features. With a 454 MHz processor and 64MB of RAM and 8MB of ash memory, the SX-582 has plenty of capacity to handle complex user applications.
