Laguna GW2387 Single Board Computer

Laguna GW2387 Single Board Computer

A low cost, small footprint, single board computer with Gigabit Ethernet, USB, and two high-power Mini-PCI radio sockets

The GW2387 is a member of the Gatewoks 4th generation Laguna family of single board computer targeted for a wide range of network applications such as embedded wireless, mesh repeaters, wireless point to multipoint bridges, WiMAX pico base stations, and 3G to WiFi routers and gateways. It features the Cavium® ECONA™ CNS3410 ARM11 SoC processor operating at 300MHz, 256Mbytes of DDRII-400 DRAM, and 16Mbytes of Flash. Also included are two high-power Type III Mini-PCI sockets capable of supporting any combination of 802.11abgn, WiMAX radios, and other Mini-PCI peripherals. An optional Mini-PCI adapter is available for 3G CDMA/GSM modem support. The board features a wide range DC input power supply which can source up to 24W to the Mini-PCI sockets for supporting the latest high power radios. The GW2387 also includes the Gateworks System Controller for providing embedded features such as real time clock, voltage and temperature monitoring, general purpose digital I/O, serial EEPROM, programmable front panel switch, tamper switch, GPS antenna open/short detection, and advanced power management with programmable board shut-down and wake-up for remote sensor applications. Power is applied through a dedicated connector or an Ethernet jack in either a passive PoE or 802.3at architecture. The board dimensions and mounting holes are fully compatible with the Avila GW2347 and GW2357. An OpenWrt board support package is included for Linux operating systems.
