MiniPCIExpress Accessory Modules

Gateworks single board computers use Mini-PCIe sites for expansion. Many customers utilize these for WiFi? and cellular modem support however there are many other uses as well. The Mini-PCIe specification allows for both PCIe and USB signaling on the connector. Depending on the specific SBC, some sites support both PCIe and USB, PCIe only or USB only. The designer should be aware of this when selecting a peripheral board. Information for each of the slots on Gateworks boards can be found in the user manual.

Below is a list of Mini-PCIe adapters that Gateworks manufacturers. Note there are also many other adapters available from other 3rd party embedded hardware manufacturers so if you don't a card that meets your requirements contact our sales department for recommendations. Gateworks can also design custom adapters for volume opportunities.
