GW1614x Mini-PCIe to M.2 Adapter

These adapters convert a Mini-PCIe slot on the Gateworks SBC to a M.2 B-Key slot for a M.2 Cellular Modem with Dual SIM slots. The adapter also provides SIM support for slots without a SIM.

There are 2 derivations of the GW1614x:

  • GW16140 - USB 2.0 B-Key - Use for USB 2.0 slots.
    • All Ventana family
    • USB 2.0 slots on Newport SBCs
      • GW6200 - J8
      • GW6300 - J9 & J10
      • GW6400 - J9 & J10 & J11
  • GW16141 - USB 3.0 B-Key - USB 3.0 is only supported by certain slots on Newport SBCs, USB 3.0 is not supported on Ventana. For Ventana boards always use GW16140.
    • Do not use on Ventana family
    • USB 3.0 slots on Newport SBCs - Note the USB 3.0 signals overlap with the PCIe signals so some boards have a mux to allow the slot to be configured for either PCIe signaling or USB 3.0 signaling. See link here for controlling the mux using HWCONFIG.
      • GW6100 - J6 (PCIe/USB 3.0 mux)
      • GW6200 - J6 (PCIe/USB 3.0 mux)
      • GW6300 - J11 (PCIe/USB 3.0 mux)
      • GW6400 - J12 (no mux - only supports USB 3.0)

It is important to compare the M.2 Pinout of the modem to the M.2 pinout of the GW1614x. to verify no pin conflicts.
