Gateworks is proud to announce the GW16148 Mini-PCIe to M.2 NVME storage adapter. It allows any of the Mini-PCIe slots with PCIe signalling on Gateworks SBCs to be used for a M.2 NVME storage drive. NVME allows for flash storage expansion that offers better performance than a microSD and provides an option when mSATA is not supported.
NVME is used widely in the consumer space, often featuring storage devices that are 80mm long and using 4x PCIe lanes built for desktop PCs. The Gateworks adapter allows for 1x PCIe lane with a maximum card length of 52mm. One of the ideal sizes for the GW16148 adapter is a 2242 form-factor. NVME drives are available from many different memory manufacturers and are not included with the Gateworks adapter.
Mini-PCIe to NVME Adapter Highlights:
- Uses NVME M.2 Cards up to 52mm in length
- Fast transfer speeds ~ 250MB/s
- M.2 M-Key Support
- Utilizes a single PCIe lane
- Drivers and software pre-loaded on Gateworks SBCs
