Ordering Options

The GW5913 features the Freescale™ i.MX6 Dual Core ARM ® Cortex™-A9 SoC processor operating at 800MHz, 512Mbytes of DDR3-800 DRAM, and 256Mbytes of System Flash. A Mini-PCIe expansion socket with nano SIM support can be used for 802.11ac/b/g/n WiFi radios, 4G/3G/CATM1 cellular modems and other PCI Express peripherals, including a GW16122 Sub-1GHz radio, GW16126 LTE CATM1 Cellular card, GW16130 Iridium Satellite Modem or LoRA radio . A 20 pin header supports Digital I/O, Analog Input, TTL Serial, I2C and USB 2.0. A 20-pin development cable is available here. The Gigabit Ethernet port allows for high speed wired connectivity.  The Gateworks System Controller provides embedded features such as real time clock, voltage and temperature monitor, serial EEPROM, programmable pushbutton 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 8W of power to the Mini-PCIe socket for supporting the latest high-power radios. Power is applied through a dedicated connector or an Ethernet jack in an active 802.3af/at Power over Ethernet architecture. OpenWrt and Ubuntu BSPs are supported. The GW5913 is Made in the USA and features a rugged and industrial design that is suited for extreme and demanding environments.

Please Note for Development: 

  • Some software such as Ubuntu will not fit on the 256MB of NAND Flash. It is suggested to consider a GW16103 MicroSD Expansion Card or a GW5913-SP420 with 2GB of NAND flash
