Ventana GW5200 Single Board Computer

A high performance dual core SBC with two Mini-PCIe sockets, video and audio capabilities

The GW5200 is a member of the Gateworks 5th generation Ventana family of single board computers (SBCs) targeted for a wide range of indoor and outdoor applications. The GW5200 features the Freescale™ i.MX6 Dual Core ARM® Cortex™ -A9 SoC processor operating at 800MHz,  512Mbyte of DDR3-1066 DRAM, and 256Mbytes of System Flash. Peripherals include two Mini-PCIe sockets capable of supporting any combination of 802.11 abgn radios, 4G WiMAX radios, 3G CDMA/GSM cellular modems, and other PCI Express peripherals. A wide-range DC input power supply provides up to 30W of power to the Mini-PCIe sockets for supporting the latest high-power radios. The Gateworks System Controller provides embedded features such as real time clock, voltage and temperature monitor, management with programmable board shut-down and wake-up for remote sensor applications. Power is applied through a dedicated barrel jack connector or the Ethernet jack in a passive power over Ethernet or an optional 802.3af(1) compatible architecture. OpenWrt, Android, OpenEmbedded Linux and Windows Embedded Compact 7 (WEC7) board support packages are included.  For a lower cost alternative, the GW5220 only has PCIe signalling to one Mini-PCIe slot.
