Ventana GW5913 Single Board Computer

A miniature 35x100mm single board computer with Mini-PCIe, 802.3at GbE Ethernet, Nano-SIM and Peripheral I/O

The GW5913 is a member of the Gateworks 5th generation Ventana family of single board computers targeted for small embedded applications such as IoT Gateways, Man Portable Units (MPUs), Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) equipment, digital signage, and robotics. The GW5913 features the Freescale™ i.MX6 Dual Core ARM ® Cortex™-A9 SoC processor operating at 800MHz, 512Mbytes of DDR3-800 DRAM, and 256Mbytes of System Flash. A Mini-PCIe expansion socket with nanoSIM support can be used for 802.11abgn radios, 4G/3G/CATM1 cellular modems and other PCI Express peripherals. A 20 pin header supports Digital I/O, Analog Input, TTL Serial, I2C and USB 2.0. The Gateworks System Controller provides embedded features such as real time clock, voltage and temperature monitor, serial EEPROM, programmable pushbutton switch, and advanced power management with programmable board shut-down and wake-up for remote sensor applications. A wide-range DC input power supply provides up to 8W of power to the Mini-PCIe socket for supporting the latest high-power radios. Power is applied through a dedicated connector or an Ethernet jack in an active 802.3af/at Power over Ethernet architecture. OpenWrt and Ubuntu BSPs are supported.
