Post fitlet2 as a loraWan gateway
Hi,
We are looking for a more industrious solution for our lorawan gateways then our current raspberry pi's, the fitlet2 look to be a good fit.

Just one question can we fit a mpci-e lorawan gateway concentrator in the fitlet2, we are currently using the rakwireless RAK2247 (https://store.rakwireless.com/collections/lora-gateways-concentrators/products/rak2247-lora-gateway-concentrator-module-1) which with it's heat sink is about 9.1mm thick (page 4 of https://downloads.rakwireless.com/en/LoRa/RAK2247-Mini-PCIe/Hardware-Specification/RAK2247_Mini-PCIe_LoRa_Concentrator_User_Manual_V1.1.pdf), it does get hot around 40°C in a closed vented box.

It would also be Ideal if we could fit 2 card to give us 16 channels.

Thanks,

The mini-PCIe port in fitlet2 has limited clearance so the heatsink of the card has to be removed for installation on FC-PCI.
By specifications the card requires about 1.5W max and is quite tolerant to temperature. I cannot tell how well it is going to behave thermally.
It would be quite difficult to install two such cards in fitlet2 because there is a single miniPCIe socket.

You may order a fitlet2 for evaluation to run some tests.
