The 5300 features the NXP™ i.MX6 Dual Core ARM® Cortex™ -A9 SoC processor operating at 800MHz,  1 Gbyte of DDR3-1066 DRAM, and 256  Mbytes of System Flash. Peripherals feature four high-power Mini-PCIe sockets capable of supporting any combination of 802.11abgn radios, 4G WiMAX radios, 3G CDMA/GSM cellular modems and other PCI Express peripherals. Mini-PCIe cards that can be used include the GW16126 LTE CATM1 Cellular card, GW16122 Sub-1GHz radio, GW16130 Iridium Satellite Modem or LoRA radio. Two Ethernet ports allow for wired connectivity, even in a WAN and LAN configuration. The analog composite/component video input and HDMI output extend the GW5300 into wireless video applications. The Gateworks System Controller provides embedded features such as real time clock, voltage and temperature monitor, serial EEPROM, programmable pushbutton switch, tamper switch, and advanced power management with programmable board shutdown and wake-up for remote sensor applications. 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. Power is applied through a dedicated barrel jack connector or the Ethernet jack in a selectable passive or 803.3af compatible Power over Ethernet architecture. OpenWrt, Android, OpenEmbedded Linux board support packages are included. The GW5300 SBC is made in the USA and features a rugged and industrial design suited for a wide variety of extreme applications.
