Silex Technology Launches High-Performance, Industrial-Grade Wi-Fi HaLow Module Powered by Morse Micro Technology

Silex SDIO/SPI Module Powered by Morse Micro MM6108 SoC Pushes the Boundaries of Wi-Fi HaLow Capabilities

SANTA ANA, and Irvine, Calif., February 27 , 2024Silex Technology America, Inc., a global provider of leading wireless networking solutions, in collaboration with Morse Micro, the leading Wi-Fi HaLow silicon vendor, today introduced a new industrial-grade Wi-Fi HaLow module developed for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The new SX-SDMAH module combines the robust features of Silex’s wireless modules, renowned for their small form factor, extended temperature range, and product longevity, with Morse Micro’s MM6108 Wi-Fi HaLow SoC, which maximizes wireless range, coverage area and power efficiency for IoT devices.

This strategic partnership capitalizes on Silex Technology’s legacy of more than 40 years in hardware and software connectivity and Morse Micro’s pioneering role in developing Wi-Fi CERTIFIED HaLow solutions. Silex also offers turnkey services and the extended support needed to make Wi-Fi HaLow integration fast and seamless.

The SX-SDMAH module is designed to deliver unparalleled connectivity performance, with extended long range (more than 3 kilometers), ultra-low power consumption, and compatibility with numerous IoT applications, from smart homes to industrial automation. Target applications include Wi-Fi HaLow access points, gateways, Ethernet wireless bridges, Wi-Fi extenders, IP cameras, 3D scanners, GNSS receiver, vehicle telemetry devices, and high-end sensors.

We’re proud to partner with Morse Micro to deliver next-generation Wi-Fi HaLow modules that will enable Wi-Fi CERTIFIED HaLow products for the growing global demand for long-range, low-power IoT connectivity,” said Satoru Kumashiro, senior product manager at Silex Technology America. “Morse Micro is advancing the Wi-Fi HaLow market with best-in-class Wi-Fi HaLow SoCs that can extend the wireless connectivity of IoT devices to three kilometers, well beyond the reach of conventional Wi-Fi.”

Silex is a pacesetter in wireless module solutions for the expanding IoT ecosystem, and we are delighted to partner with them in developing the new SX-SDMAH module,” said Phillip Kumin, SVP of Worldwide Sales and Business Development at Morse Micro. “Our collaboration will accelerate time-to-market and simplify the development process for a wide range of IoT products based on the Wi-Fi HaLow IEEE 802.11ah standard. Together, we’re building momentum for Wi-Fi HaLow as the long-range protocol for IoT connectivity.”

Silex SX-SDMAH Wi-Fi HaLow Module Features (US Version):

  • Sub-GHz 802.11ah Wi-Fi HaLow radio module operating in the 902-928 MHz bands for the United States and Canada, with superior penetration of physical barriers

  • Long-distance wireless connectivity with 3 km range and large network capacity

  • 1/2/4/8 MHz channel bandwidth support

  • Up to 32.5 Mbps PHY bit rate

  • Transmission power of +24 dBm

  • Access point and station mode

  • SDIO/SPI interface for Linux OS and SPI for FreeRTOS
