Laguna GW2383 Single Board Computer

Laguna GW2383 Single Board Computer

A miniature full featured embedded SBC with a footprint less than 5 square inches and 2.5W typical power consumption

(Not recommended for new design)

The GW2383 4th generation Laguna single board computer board targets small form factor, low power embedded applications such as Man Portable Units (MPUs), Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) equipment, and remote sensor networks.  The GW2383 is similar to the GW2380 except that it replaces the AMR meter interface connector with a Micro-B USB Device connector.  The GW2383 uses a high performance ARM11 SoC coupled with a high-power Mini-PCIe socket to provide support for a wide variety of current and next generation radio modules.  These modules include 802.11abgn, WiMAX radios, 3G CDMA/GSM Modems, and other PCI Express peripherals.  Additional radio functionality is provided through an onboard expansion connector which allows support for ZigBee® and Bluetooth® mezzanine modules.  Other peripherals include Gigabit Ethernet, USB 2.0 Device port, and 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 advanced power management with programmable board wakeup and shut-down for remote sensor applications.  The -40° 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.
