mPCIe Lorawan Gateway Cards

Submitted by cliff on Wed, 11/04/2018 - 10:52

There are currently a few "mPCIe" lorawan gateway cards on the market or in development. Unfortunately most of them only use the mPCIe/M.2/mSATA form factor but not a mPCIe compatible pinout. This list tries to be complete in differentiating between the different cards.
