Silex Technology announces high-performance 802.11ah Wi-Fi HaLow SDIO module #IoT


Silex Technology, a global provider of wireless networking solutions, has announced the SX-SDMAH, an industrial-grade Wi-Fi HaLow SDIO module. Utilising Morse Micro’s MM6108 chipset, the SX-SDMAH maximises Wi-Fi HaLow’s long-range, high data throughput capabilities, allowing up to 8 MHz usage in approved countries. The addition of the SX-SDMAH to Silex’s Wi-Fi HaLow product portfolio provides customers with more flexibility in their embedded system design, ensuring interoperability among Wi-Fi HaLow devices.

“We are proud to be partnering with Silex Technology, an industry-leading Wi-Fi HaLow solution provider, who has integrated our cutting-edge silicon into their Wi-Fi HaLow ecosystem,” says Michael De Nil, co-founder and CEO of Morse Micro. “With the rapid expansion of IoT, the demand for reliable, long-range connectivity has become critical. With Silex’s expertise in Wi-Fi HaLow, we are confident this new partnership will bring more groundbreaking Wi-Fi HaLow solutions for the future.”

“Morse Micro is a fast-growing semiconductor company that is advancing the Wi-Fi HaLow market,” says Keith Sugawara, president and CEO of Silex Technology. “We’re proud to be partnering with them to deliver the SX-SDMAH and develop next-generation Wi-Fi HaLow solutions for the growing global demand for IoT.”

Product features

The SX-SDMAH is a sub-GHz 802.11ah Wi-Fi HaLow radio module. It includes the following feature set:

  • High-transmission power
  • SDIO 2.0 host interface for the Linux operating system
  • SPI host interface for RTOS
  • Industrial temperature raging of -40°C to 85°C
  • Surface mount small form-factor module: 17mm x 18mm x 2.65mm with integrated MHF-1 antenna connector

Silex Technology offers a Wi-Fi HaLow module lineup with the SX-SDMAH and Newracom’s NRC7292-based SX-NEWAH, which is suitable for a hostless embedded system. Silex supports customers through market enablement, ensuring interoperability between two major IC suppliers in the Wi-Fi HaLow market for reliable Wi-Fi HaLow deployment. Its global team of hardware and software engineers offers services that include embedded design consultation in Wi-Fi driver development, porting wireless drivers for various platforms, firmware expertise, driver optimisation to the radio module, and hardware design review for compliance.


The evaluation kit of the SX-SDMAH with Raspberry Pi 4 is available for evaluation in the United States and Canada. Contact to start a design evaluation.
