SDK delivers Linux programming for connected embedded applications

As devices become more and more connected en route to the Internet of Things (IoT), adding connectivity to embedded builds is a must. In order to supply connectivity to Linux-based applications, Silex Technology released the SX-580-2700DM-SDK, a Software Development Kit (SDK) that incorporates dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless communications stacks in a complete Linux development environment. The Wireless LAN (WLAN) connectivity solution also includes WPA, WPA2, and WEP plus 802.1x authentication to ensure secure communications for sensitive embedded applications.

In addition to the Linux development environment, the SX-580-2700DM-SDK includes an SX-580-6900 evaluation board outfitted with RJ-45 Ethernet connector, three serial connectors, a USB connector, SPI and I2C interface, an I/O AC adapter, and a wireless LAN antenna. Silex Technology also provides a complete set of hardware and software reference designs to help add Wi-Fi connectivity to custom embedded applications.
