Mini-PCIe IoT Radio Targets Industrial Applications

Gateworks has released the second generation of the
GW16122 IoT Radio for rugged and industrial applications. This next generation
card features greatly improved output power through a 20dBm power amplifier,
more storage space and a simplified design, says Gateworks. Software from Texas
Instruments (TI) includes a TI 802.15.4 Stack, 6LoWPAN, Wi-SUN and KNX RF
support. The GW16122 additionally features a 2.4GHz RF output for Bluetooth 5
LE, Thread and Zigbee.  This Mini-PCIe
radio card provides low-power and long-range radio communications.

Second Generation GW16122 Mini-PCIe IoT Radio Features:

  • Updated TI CC1352P Dual-Band Wireless
    Radio Transmitter/Receiver
  • Sub-1 GHz Radio (868MHz EU, 915 MHz US)
  • Improved +20dBm output power using
    high-power amplifier for longer distances
  • Increased flash storage from 128KB to
  • Increased SRAM from 20KB to 80KB
  • Simplified design with removal of large
    TI Tiva MCU
  • Reduced pricing
  • -121dBm Receive Sensitivity
  • Low Power
  • Minimal Interference – Narrow Bandwidth
  • IEEE 802.15.4e/g Standard for Star Networks
  • M-Bus, IEEE802.15.4g, Contiki 6LoWPAN, Wi-SUN,
    KNX RF
  • Analog, I2C and Digital I/O application
  • 2.4 GHz RF Output Supports Bluetooth 5 with LE,
    Thread and Zigbee
  • Enables Gateworks SBCs as an IoT Gateway /
  • -40°C to +85°C Temperature

In contrast to many other IoT technologies such as SigFox
and Lora, this technology requires no monthly fees or consortium memberships,
says Gateworks. All the software is Open Source and the entire network is
completely private with zero dependency on the coverage of third-party
