Motorola LA-5137 Wireless Networker CompactFlash Radio Card

The latest in Motorola's portfolio of client radio cards for embedded mobile applications, the LA-5137 Wireless Networker™ CompactFlash® Radio Card delivers 802.11a/b/g wireless connectivity to medical devices and other mission-critical equipment. It offers robust security in accordance with HIPAA and PCI standards, as well as low power consumption, efficient roaming and load-balancing to maximize device and network availability.

Backed by Motorola's OEM product development support, the LA-5137 is built on the same code base and worldwide radio chipset as the LA-5127 for ease of migration. Its software development kit for Linux and Windows CE can be customized and ported to proprietary operating systems.

Takes advantage of three radio bands when splitting network traffic to optimize security and availability features.

WPA/WPA2 and 802.1x (AES) compatible
Provides robust standards-based security for Linux and Windows applications.

Pre-emptive roaming
Optimized network availability, improved wireless link reliability and enhanced mobility.

Dynamic load balancing
Increased throughput in cluttered, real-world environments.

Power management
Extended operation time on-station between charges.

Limited modular worldwide regulatory approval backed by Motorola service/support
Potentially accelerates time-to-market, reducing product development time and cost.

Comprehensive software development kit
Provides the tools for customizing the LA-5127 for embedded mobile applications.

Design support and technical service
Enables custom solutions optimized for each OEM.

Hard MAC with on-card memory
Easily upgradeable with substantial memory for future features and functions.

Common code-base radio platform
Leverages end-product driver development and regulatory efforts; accelerates product migration path.
