RockPro64 SSD Expansion Board/SATA Shield
#5
Technically, you could use the board as0zial showed a picture from as it connects through a USB connector, that would also work with the RockPro64.

However, a standard PCIe SATA card is cheaper as there are literally hundreds around on Amazon, Ebay & co. Most of them work thanks to the drivers in the Linux Kernel out of the box, especially the Marvell chipsets are pretty well supported. It just makes sense to look up the chipset that sits on the card and compare that with the card's specification, that solves most problems before even buying (I have seen some cards with 6-8 Ports claiming a chipset that can only handle 4 Ports and then using the SATA splitters, which is just a mess)
