    114114Note the GW16081 also supports USB signaling to the Mini-PCIe sites so a combination of !WiFi and Cellular radios could be used with these configurations. The GW6400 board also has a USB only Mini-PCIe site that can be used as well for other radio types.

    116 As a technology demonstration, Gateworks compined a GW6300 plus GW16081 with 9x GW17032 (WLE900VX, ATH10k) radios. Each radio then was configured as an access points.  This configuration can be achieved very simply using the following steps.
    117 
    118 - Attach radios to both boards, attach expansion board to SBC
    119 - Attach barrel jack power to expansion board.  The radios are going to draw more power than can be can be provided through the mezzinene expansion header
