802.11ac PCI Express Wireless LAN Module
New PCIe Mini Card with 3x3 Architecture
The SX-PCEAC is an 802.11ac compliant single-band 3x3 PCIe Mini
Card. It is based on the the Qualcomm Atheros QCA9880 chipset,
designed to deliver wireless data rates of up to 1.3Gbps. The
SX-PCEAC supports 20/40/80MHz and 256-QAM to maximize
bandwidth efficiency.
Unlike the other similar solutions, the design, manufacturing, and
tuning processes are strictly controlled in-house at the Silex
state-of-the-art ISO9001 facility in Japan. Each card is individually
tested and inspected to ensure the industry’s highest quality
resulting greater performance and reliability.
Typical Applications:
SX-PCEAC card gives customers the ability to easily and reliably
support applications where this extra bandwidth is required, like
deploying HD video over Wi-Fi.
