Laguna GW2380 Single Board Computer

Laguna GW2380 Single Board Computer

A miniature full featured embedded SBC with a footprint less than 5 square inches and power consumption below 3W

The Gateworks GW2380 Laguna single board computer is targeted for small form factor, low power embedded applications such as Man Portable Units (MPUs), Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) equipment, and remote sensor networks. The GW2380 uses a high performance ARM11 SoC coupled with a Mini-PCIe socket to provide support for a wide variety of current and next generation radio modules. These modules include 802.11abgn, 4G WiMax, and 3G CDMA/GSM cellular modems. Additional radio functionality can be provided using an onboard expansion connector which allows support for ZigBee® and Bluetooth® mezzanine modules. Other peripherals include a Gigabit Ethernet port and the Gateworks System Controller for providing embedded features such as real time clock with battery backup, voltage and temperature monitoring, digital I/O, configuration EEPROM, and programmable board shut-down and wakeup for remote sensor applications. The GW2380 also features a dedicated 10-pin AMR serial connector for support of utility meters based upon ANSI C12.18, C12.19, and C12.21 protocols. The -40°C to +85°C operating temperature range is ideally suited for harsh and severe outdoor environments. Optional features include a GPS Receiver for location services. An OpenWrt board support package is included for Linux operating systems.
