Designing with Freescale (DwF) seminar for embedded engineers was held today in Paris, France. These DwF seminars provide tailored live training to embedded engineers on a broad range of Freescale solutions. Among many other industry experts, Andew Ross from Silex Technology America had the opportunity to speak at this event about Wi-Fi technology and factors that device manufacturers should consider to integrate Wi-Fi for their Freescale i.MX 6 and i.MX7 platforms.
Wi-Fi is becoming ubiquitous, finding its way into all sorts of devices including those in consumer, industrial and automotive applications. Selecting a Wi-Fi radio module that is right for your application can be a very long and tricky process. Most processor platforms including Freescale’s i.MX6 and i.MX7 support multiple interface options to add either a SDIO or a PCIe radio module. Read More
The U.S. Level VI energy-efficiency regulation, aimed at energy savings in external power supplies, goes into force on February 10, 2016, and will impact all OEM’s selling into the U.S. market. The European Union (EU) also is expected to harmonize with the new efficiency standard.
Management software is an important piece of the equation when looking at networking equipment so you can efficiently configure your product. More importantly, once it is on the network, you’ll want to have a robust way to remotely monitor and manage all of your devices, especially if you have a lot of them. A good management software can allow the network administrator to easily manage a large fleet of devices on the network from one computer remotely. Last month, Silex launched our AMC Manager software for this purpose. Read More
Reaching certain locations with wired network connections can be difficult and expensive. Today, wireless can connect most devices with ease; however, many devices do not have a wireless connection. Ethernet to Wireless Bridge products can allow these devices to connect to wireless networks, but many of these products are designed for home or small business use, not for the enterprise. Read More
