IoT Your Way with a Custom Gateway!
Gateworks Corporation is a leading supplier of made in the USA industrial grade ARM based SBCs that can be used to implement high performance IoT Gateway solutions. Many IoT applications require rugged, industrial temperature rated hardware which is where Gateworks SBCs excel. Gateworks SBC’s feature Mini-PCIe expansion slots which allow support of a variety of wireless standards such as Cellular (LTE/CATM1), WiFi, Bluetooth, SubGHz, Thread, WiSun, Zigbee LoRa, SigFox and Satellite. The Mini-PCIe slots provide customers with a flexible plug-n-play platform that can be tailored to meet their exact specifications. Gateworks SBCs also include GPIO, USB, CAN, RS232, RS485, SPI and I2C interfaces for connecting local sensors. Single, dual and 5-port Ethernet models are also available including SFP Fiber support.
All boards support an Open Source Linux OS (Ubuntu, OpenWrt) which provides the user with complete access and control of the data and allows the use of any of the large number of cloud providers such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Service (AWS). Many different methods can be used to connect to the cloud, including standard WiFi, Ethernet, Iridium Satellite and Cellular.
Gateworks can also provide customers with a “Special” configuration of our standard products. This “Special” program allows customers to create cost and feature optimized versions of our standard products. The special is assigned a unique, revision locked, part number so customers can be insured they receive the same exact configuration every time they order. Note there is a 100-piece minimum order quantity for special configuration models. Some of the items that can be configured under the “Specials” program are:
- Changing components such as DRAM size, Flash size, or CPU type/speed
- Removing components not used to lower the cost of the product
- Adding optional components designed into the product but not loaded on the standard version (ie. locking headers)
- Programming the customer firmware
For high volume applications, Gateworks can also design a full custom SBC to meet the customer exact needs. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to discuss your exact needs.
