    66Welcome!  Thank you for purchasing a Gateworks single board computer (SBC).  We hope to get you started with a little bit of info from our Gateworks wiki site.

    8 Gateworks single board computers (SBC) are powerful, low power network processor boards that are unlimited in their capabilities.  Typically, you will find OpenWrt (Linux) pre-installed by default, and thus a lot of information is devoted towards configuring and using the OpenWRT software.  Because OpenWrt is open source, Gateworks encourages customers to also leverage the open source community of [http://www.openwrt.org OpenWrt] on the web!  The Ventana & Newport family also supports other BSPs that can be found on the [wiki:ventana Ventana Product Wiki Page] & [wiki:newport Newport Product Wiki Page].
