Ordering Options

The GW6100 SBC features the Cavium OcetonTX™ Dual Core ARMv8 SoC processor operating at 800MHz, 1GByte of DDR4 DRAM, and 8GBytes of eMMC System Flash. A Mini-PCIe expansion socket supports 802.11abgn/ac wireless radios, LTE/4G/3G CDMA/GSM cellular modems, mSATA drives and other PCI Express peripherals.

Additional peripherals include a Gigabit Ethernet port and a USB Type-C™ port. The Gateworks System Controller provides embedded features such as real time clock, voltage and temperature monitor, fan control and monitor, serial EEPROM, and advanced power management with programmable board shut-down and wake-up for remote IoT sensor applications. A wide-range DC input power supply provides up to 8W to the Mini-PCIe socket for supporting the latest high-power wireless radios and up to 7.5W to the USB Type-C™ port for powering external devices. Input Power is applied through a dedicated connector or the Ethernet port in a Passive Power over Ethernet configuration. Both OpenWrt and Ubuntu Linux Board Support Packages are supported on the ARM Processor. The small size of the single-board computer allows it to operate in rugged and industrial applications with limited space.

This product is made in the USA making it suitable for military and other secure projects. An IoT Gateway can easily be created by mating the GW6100 SBC with a Mini-PCIe card such as the GW16126 LTE CATM1 Cellular card, GW16122 Sub-1GHz radio, GW16130 Iridium Satellite Modem or LoRA radio. Internet of things and edge routing systems are a perfect match for this miniature SBC that is only 35x100mm.
