Powered by an RPi Compute Module and ready for deployment as a router, edge-computing device, or IoT gateway
This project is launching soon.
Compatible With CM1, CM3, and CM3+ Compute Modules
If you’re looking to create your own router, edge computing device, or IoT
gateway, the PiGWay P2 and P4 are a step up from the kind of DIY solution you
might otherwise implement using a Raspberry Pi (RPi) or some other Single-Board
Computer (SBC). More specifically, they:
Are driven by RPi Compute Modules with access to 8, 16, or 32 GB of eMMC flash
storage so they do not have to rely on SD Cards.
Include a hardware crypto chip to help protect your sensitive key material.
Support a wider range of power options by way of expansion boards.
Can be expanded with peripherals like LTE modems and cameras by way of a USB
2.0 interface exposed through a four-pin header in the P4 and two four-pin
headers in the P2.
Host multiple on-board NICs that provide for network isolation (keeping WAN
and LAN traffic separate, for example).
Can power downstream peripherals like CCTV cameras and thermal imaging sensors
Whatsmore, our PiGWay boards are completely open hardware. By the time this
campaign ends, we will have published all of our P2 and P4 design files,
including our board schematics, layouts, project files, firmware, and software.
Note: Raspberry Pi Compute Module and power adapter not included.

Supports the full range of software available in the Raspberry Pi (RPi) ecosystem
Compatible with suitably sized RPi HATs
Crypto hardware chip for secure key storage and signing
Multiple independent, 10/100 Mbps NICs
PiGWay P2 - two NICs
PiGWay P4 - four NICs
USB expansion headers
PiGWay P2 - two headers
PiGWay P4 - one header
MagJacks export PoE to the headers so that, using an expansion board, you can power the device via PoE (PD) or deliver power to attached devices
PiGWay P2 - two PoE PSEs
PiGWay P4 - four PoE PSEs
One power LED & three programmable LEDs
Professional enclosure available
NIC 1 & USB Hub: Microchip LAN9514 with EEPROM
NICs 2 - 4: Microchip LAN9500A with EEPROM
Crypto: Microchip ATECC608A
Power: Requires clean, 5 VDC power, at 3 A, by way of a 2.1 mm barrel plug (positive center)
