The GW7400 is a member of the Gateworks 7th generation Venice family of single board computers targeted for rugged and industrial embedded applications. The GW7400 features the 64-bit NXP™ i.MX8M Plus Quad Core ARM® Cortex™-A53 SoC processor operating at 1.6GHz, 1GBytes of LPDDR4 DRAM, and 8GBytes of eMMC System Flash.

The i.MX8M Plus SoC features a Neural Processing Unit (NPU) operating at up to 2.3 TOPS, a Video Processing Unit (VPU) supporting up to 1080p60 encode/decode, a GC7000UL Graphics Processing Unit (GPU), and a Cadence® Tensilica® HiFi 4 DSP. Six total Gigabit Ethernet ports offer 1x WAN and 5x switched LAN wired connectivity. Three Mini-PCIe expansion sockets support PCIe 2.0 and USB 2.0 (3.0 optional) signaling and can be used for peripherals such as 802.11ax/ac/b/g/n WiFi radios.

An M.2 B-Key socket is also available with PCIe 2.0 and USB 3.0 for 5G/4G/3G/CATM1 cellular modems with support for dual Nano SIMs. A USB 3.0 Type-C port is standard. Peripheral headers support Digital I/O, Analog Input, RS232/RS485/TTL Serial, I2C and SPI. A combined MIPI-DSI/CSI header with I2S audio offers video input/output. A 3-axis accelerometer and CAN Bus are standard. An optional GPS and onboard Laird Sterling-LWB5+ 802.11a/b/g/n/ac WiFi / Bluetooth v5.2 module are 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 for the Mini-PCIe and M.2 sockets. Power is applied through a dedicated barrel jack or an Ethernet port in an active 802.3af/at or passive PoE architecture. Ubuntu Linux BSP is supported.
