using PINEBOOK Pro M.2/NGFF NVMe SSD Interface Adapter
#1
Hello

I would like to know why is this NVMe interface is only for pinebook pro ?  (https://store.pine64.org/?product=pinebo...ce-adapter)
I know this laptop is using a modified rockpro64 board, but what differences do they have ?

thank you

Its 40/50 pin FFC ribbon connector by the looks of it not a M.2 connector apart from that which is a huge difference identical

As opposed to what? The original pinebook? Well, that would be simple... the A64 processor on the original pinebook doesn't support PCIe, hence no PCIe->NVMe.

I was talking about rockpro64 board.
Sorry I though this would be clear because we are in rockpro64 subforum, but I should have clarify that

I mean the pinebook pro is also using a rockpro64 board (but modified) , but I suppose stuartiannaylor is right: there is no way to connect it because no  40/50 pin FFC  connector on rockpro.

thank you guys

lol... yeah... it's nothing more than a M-keyed M.2 -> FFC ribbon connector, just like how the rockpro64 adapter is a M-keyed M.2 one, but to PCIe x4 in that instance. I've actually ordered one of these riser card extenders to see if I can mount the NVMe adapter card differently... as then I can think about putting the rockpro64 in a case... Smile

Derp: Would be a good idea to actually past the link I intended to paste in... :facepalm: ... https://www.aliexpress.com/item/33040463627.html
