Over the course of the last few months we have been fervently making adaptations to Torvalds 4.20 kernel for use with the Ventana product line. Accelerometer and GSC support has now been added, completing the feature set of this kernel.
The latest iteration of this kernel can be cloned from our Git repository:

Found in our pre-built Bionic-Ubuntu .ubi images:
Because of changes to the device tree syntax U-boot v2017.05 must be installed for everything to function correctly.

Not all Wiki pages have been updated to reflect this change yet. Please feel welcome to reach out to email@example.com if you would like more information about this kernel version.
Gateworks is proud to announce the release of the Newport GW6400 single board computer, featuring the Cavium Octeon TX® Dual/Quad Core ARM processor running up to 1.5GHz. The GW6400 is the latest Newport family member with an extensive list of features, including five Gigabit Ethernet ports and two SFP fiber ports.
Gateworks is proud to announce the release of the Newport family of single board computers, featuring the Cavium Octeon TX® ARM processor. This product line is the first to utilize the Octeon TX and represents the next generation of networking performance for embedded processor boards.
Gateworks Newport Family Highlights:
Gateworks would like to announcethe release & support of Yocto 2.3 on the Ventana Family of Single Board Computers that feature the NXPi.MX6 processor. Yocto 2.3is under the code name Pyro. Yocto is a Linux operating system that Gateworks uses for video input and output, networking, GUI, IoT and more. Gateworks has added enhancementsto Yocto 2.3 thus creating the Gateworks Yocto 2.3 BSP.
Gateworks Yocto 2.3 BSP Highlights:
To get started, Gateworks has posted Pre-Built images on the Yocto Wiki page. This includes tarballs and ubis for multimedia and gui images. The wiki page also documents building Yocto 2.3from source.
Please update to the GateworksYocto 2.3 BSP and contact Gateworks with any questions. The support team is happy and available to work with you!
Gateworks designed the GW16120 Mini-PCIePower and USB Expansion Card to meet these power needs while eliminating the need for an additional separate external power supply. Given the robust power supply on the Gateworks SBCs, using the power from the Mini-PCIe slot can provide many watts of power dependent on the SBC. Both 3.3V and 5V rails are provided along with an additional bonus USB port. The GW16120 also allows for stacking of a Mini-PCIe wireless radio or other card on a riser connector for applications that cannot give up a full Mini-PCIe slot.

Wireless access is everywhere and has become an essential convenience that customers expect businesses to provide.Wireless connections can become unreliable and suffer in high density use areas like trains, buses, cafes and stadiums. Users can face slow bandwidth, dropped connections and interruption when streaming video.
To improve wireless reliability, quality, and performance in high density areas, Galgus has developed and patented CHT (Cognitive Hotspot Technology), a multi-platform software that may be installed on Gateworks Single Board Computers. CHT software enables WiFi devices to become intelligent fulfilling their potential capabilities and automatically taking real-time decisions to optimize the wireless performance for every connected user. CHT galvanizes your WiFi network. APs and routers intelligently measure, share and optimize radio resource. All this is achieved without the need for a central controller. WiFi devices are aware of their surroundings making joint decisions to best improve performance. There is not a single point of failure and next to no delay in the decision making process. A simple, salable and affordable solution that increases throughput performance by over 400% thereby increasing the capacity of both number of simultaneous clients and the bandwidth availability for high QoS applications such as video streaming.
CHT on Gateworks SBCs provides the following advantages:
