Silex has a rich history of partnership with Canon. We have been providing Canon compatible document imaging connectivity solutions for decades to enhance the networking and wireless capabilities of Canon Printers, Multifunction Printers, and Scanners.
Today, we launched the ability for customers to be able to easily download our SX-Virtual Link SDK for Windows for free. This is very exciting as we have been offering this product to customers at a price, and now one of the barriers to proliferation of our technology has been removed. Now I am interested to see what kinds of applications our customers come up with for this technology.
Silex has had customers reporting a couple of issues with using and enabling of the WiFi interface on the Yocto Linux version 1.6 (Daisy) using Kernel version 3.10.17. We have helped some of our customers by providing work around to get the Wi-Fi interface up in the Yocto environment.
Selecting a Wi-Fi radio module that is right for your application can be a very long and tricky process as there are a number of Wi-Fi modules out in the market today. Not all wireless modules are created equal. So it becomes very important that one chooses a good evaluation kit and platform to evaluate and test the radio characteristics of the module.
I had a very productive two days at Qualcomm Atheros (QCA) headquarters last month in San Jose.
We were thrilled to be invited to this event as one of 12 Authorized Design Centers (ADCs) throughout the world. Highlights from the training included:
Authorized Design Center (ADC) Status and Special Training Opportunities
There have been a number of major changes since January 2011 when it was first announced that Qualcomm was going to acquire Atheros. The good news for Silex Technology (and other ADCs) is that Qualcomm recognizes that they need a strong channel of partners to address the growing demand for Wi-Fi technology. The email invitation for the first ADC training stated:
“As Qualcomm continues to evolve the way it addresses segments and customers, this program will be instrumental in our ability to win at all tiers of customers.”
