The GW7100 is a member of the Gateworks 7th generation Venice family of single board computers targeted for rugged and industrial embedded applications. The GW7100 features the 64-bit NXP™ i.MX8M Mini or Plus Quad Core ARM® Cortex™-A53 SoC processor operating at 1.6GHz, 1GBytes of LPDDR4 DRAM, and 8GBytes of eMMC System Flash.

One Mini-PCIe expansion socket can be used for PCI Express peripherals such as 802.11ax/ac/b/g/n WiFi radios, 5G/4G/3G/CATM1 cellular modems. Peripheral headers support Digital I/O, Analog Input, UART/TTL Serial, I2C and SPI. A Nano SIM slot is standard. A 3-Axis accelerometer is standard. An optional GPS is available. A TPM 2.0 secure crypto-processor is optional for ensuring system security and integrity.

The Gateworks System Controller provides embedded features such as real time clock, voltage and temperature monitor, programmable pushbutton, and programmable board shut-down and wake-up for remote applications. A wide-range DC input power supply provides up to 15W of power. Power is applied through a dedicated header or an Ethernet port in passive Power over Ethernet (PoE) architecture.

Ubuntu Linux BSP is supported. OpenWrt, Yocto, Buildroot Optional
