Ordering Options

The GW5400 features the NXP™ i.MX6 800MHz Quad Core ARM® Cortex™-A9 SoC Processor operating at 1GHz, 1Gbyte of DDR3-1066 DRAM, and 256Mbytes of System Flash. Six Mini-PCIe sockets support any combination of 802.11ac/b/g/n WiFi radios, 4G WiMAX radios, 3G CDMA/GSM cellular modems and other PCI Express peripherals including a GW16126 LTE CATM1 Cellular card, GW16122 Sub-1GHz radio, GW16130 Iridium Satellite Modem or LoRA radio. Two Ethernet ports provide wired connectivity for WAN, LAN or VPN options. Video output interfaces include HDMI, LVDS and analog. Video input interfaces include HDMI to 1080p60 and analog. Audio interfaces include analog input and output. The Gateworks System Controller provides embedded features such as real time clock, voltage and temperature monitor, serial EEPROM, fan control, programmable front panel switch, tamper 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 30W of power to the Mini-PCIe sockets for supporting the latest high-power radios. Power is applied through a dedicated barrel jack connector of the Ethernet jack in a selectable passive or 802.3af compatible Power over Ethernet architecture. OpenWrt, Android, OpenEmbedded Linux and Windows Embedded Compact 7 (WEC7) board support packages are included. The GW5400 is unique in that it has a total of six Mini-PCIe slots while retaining a compact size of 140 x 100mm to fit in rugged and industrial embedded applications. The GW5400 is made in the USA.
