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
[TM]and runs an embedded Linux operating system based on the Yocto Project . 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
multiradio 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.

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 .
