The Bluegiga APx4 is a small form factor, low power System-on-Module, that includes the latest wireless connectivity standards: 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0. The APx4 is based on Freescale's i.MX28 processor family and runs an embedded Linux operating system based on the Yocto Project[TM]. In addition to integrating the 454MHz ARM9 processor, the wireless connectivity technologies and Linux operating system, the APx4 also includes with several built in applications, such as the 802.11 and Bluetooth 4.0 stacks, Continua v.1.5 compliant IEEE manager and many more. This combination provides an ideal platform for designing multi-radio wireless gateways that enables fast time-to-market and minimum R&D risks.

"Integrating Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Bluetooth Smart Ready technologies into a single platform is far from a trivial challenge - especially when these technologies need to seamlessly co-exist. This is exactly what the APx4 accomplishes in addition to providing an ARM9 based Linux platform that allows our customers to quickly and simply add their own applications into it", comments Mikko Savolainen, Bluegiga's VP of Product Management.

The Bluegiga APx4 software can be easily extended or tailored customizing the Linux operating system with applications. The motherboards for the APx4 can be easily extended to include almost anything from 3G modems to Ethernet and audio interfaces to and touch screen displays. The Bluegiga APx4 is an ideal product for applications requiring wireless or wired connectivity technologies and the processing power of the ARM9 processor, such as health and fitness gateways, building and home automation gateways, M2M, point-of-sale and industrial connectivity.

"We have seen the demand for wireless connectivity solutions clearly increasing. The APx4 wireless System-on-Module is directly designed to address these connectivity needs and provide a platform for rapid development of new innovative wireless gateways, says Tom Nordman, Bluegiga's VP of Sales and Marketing, adding that "Bluegiga is very excited to be able to leverage its long experience in wireless connectivity by expanding our product portfolio to include this type of new solutions."
