The GW16146 is a low power, long range, 900MHz 802.11ah full size Mini-PCIe WiFi radio designed to provide Wi-Fi HaLow wireless communication utilizing Gateworks Single Board Computers. The 802.11ah radio is targeted towards Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The GW16146 features a Silex SX-NEWAH 802.11ah module that is powered by the NRC7292 System-on-Chip from Newracom. The radio operates in the 900MHz license-exempt band which allows it to penetrate buildings, walls and foliage much better than standard 2.4G/5G WiFi radios. Additionally, 802.11ah provides much greater range (1km+) and higher bandwidth (up to 4Mbps) over other Sub 1GHz protocols like LoRa and Sigfox. Other advantages include a higher client count (1000+) and lower power. Standard WiFi IP connectivity software, including Linux tools, commands and interfaces are also supported allowing for quick application integration. An onboard FTDI SPI to USB bridge allows a Gateworks Single Board Computer to communicate to the module using USB 2.0 signaling which is supported on many Mini-PCIe connector interfaces. A MHF-1/u.FL antenna connector allows for a variety of external antenna choices. Antenna and cables sold separately. Suggested antenna is the GW10124.
