Concentrator Card LRWCCx-MPCIE for LoRaWAN® technology
The LRWCCx-MPCI is a family of LoRaWAN® concentrator cards in mini PCIe form factor based on Semtechs SX1301 or SX1308 chipset. An LRWCC card enables OEMs and system integrators to build high-performance, certified LoRaWAN® gateway solutions. Moreover it allows to retrofit existing routers and other edge-level network equipment with LoRaWAN® gateway capabilities.
The card can be used in any embedded platform offering a free mini-PCIe slot with USB connectivity and capable of providing enough power for the card. Typically the host system runs a reasonably recent Linux operating system. Apart from support for the USB controller and a networking stack (TCP/IP and UDP), no further Kernel drivers are required. The software driver to run the card in this kind of setup is the HAL driver which runs in the user space. Additionally packet forwarder is required to forward data onto a LoRa® network server. Both are available via the LoRa® network. project as Open Source Software. In addition there is an MCU firmware that enables a UART interface for host communication.
LoRa® and LoRaWAN® are registered trademark of Semtech Corporation.

Mini PCIe to USB Adapter
The mini PCIe to USB adapter allows to insert compatible cards like the LoRaWAN concentrator card LRWCCx-MPCIE and connect them via a USB cable to a host computer. Note: you need to order an antenna pigtail and an antenna to build a Pico Gateway with this adapter.
