New Generation IoT Long-Range Sub-1 GHz Mini-PCIe Radio

The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly being adopted by nearly every industry in the world to allow control and monitoring of almost anything! Gateworks has released the second generation of the GW16122 IoT Radio for rugged and industrial applications. This next generation card features greatly improved output power through a 20dBm power amplifier, more storage space and a simplified design. Software from TI includes a TI 802.15.4 Stack, 6LoWPAN, Wi-SUN and KNX RF support. The GW16122 additionally features a 2.4 GHz RF output for Bluetooth 5 LE, Thread and Zigbee.  This Mini-PCIe radio card provides low-power and long-range radio communications.

Second Generation GW16122 Mini-PCIe IoT Radio:

  • Updated TI CC1352P Dual-Band Wireless Radio Transmitter/Receiver
  • Sub-1 GHz Radio (868MHz EU, 915 MHz US)
  • Improved +20dBm output power using high-power amplifier for longer distances
  • Increased flash storage from 128KB to 352KB
  • Increased SRAM from 20KB to 80KB
  • Simplified design with removal of large TI Tiva MCU
  • Reduced pricing
  • -121dBm Receive Sensitivity
  • Low Power
  • Minimal Interference – Narrow Bandwidth
  • IEEE 802.15.4e/g Standard for Star Networks
  • M-Bus, IEEE802.15.4g, Contiki 6LoWPAN, Wi-SUN, KNX RF
  • Analog, I2C and Digital I/O application connector
  • 2.4 GHz RF Output Supports Bluetooth 5 with LE, Thread and Zigbee
  • Enables Gateworks SBCs as an IoT Gateway / Collector
  • -40C to +85C Temperature Range

When compared to many other IoT technologies such as SigFox and Lora, this technology requires no monthly fees or consortium memberships. All the software is Open Source and the entire network is completely private with zero dependency on the coverage of third party networks. The  latest GW16122 will enable Gateworks SBCs to serve as an IoT Gateway for all embedded rugged and industrial applications!
