Ordering Options

The expansion module adds seven Mini-PCIe sockets to any Ventana single board computer and specific Newport SBCs. Four of the sockets include both PCIe and USB 2.0 signaling and two include SIM sockets for GSM/CDMA modem support. A highly efficient, wide-input power supply supports high-power Mini-PCIe radios. Other members of the Ventana expansion module family are available with Legacy Mini-PCI sockets, GbE Ethernet ports, and GbE Fiber Ethernet ports. An ordering option is available for stacking multiple expansion modules on a single Ventana single board computer.
