Dual M.2 SATA SSD Low Profile Mezzanine Storage Module

Available as a mezzanine add-on expansion board e.g. to the PC6- or SC6-TANGO and other CPU carrier cards, the C48-M2 provides host connectors for mounting of two M.2 SATA SSD modules, as a rugged and fast mass storage media. Both sockets can be used individually, for up to 6G (SATA 3) data transfer rate.
M.2 is a popular standard for small size mezzanine modules. defined by the PCI-SIG®. The C48-M2 is suitable for SATA style M.2 SSDs, which are referred to as ‘Socket 2 SSD/Other’ in the M.2 specification (connector key B, module key B+M). The C48-M2 accommodates M.2 SATA SSD modules starting from 22mm x 30mm (2230) up to 22mm x 80mm (2280), to be fixed by screw lock. Both single- and double sided M.2 modules can be populated. M.2 SATA SSD modules are available with a maximum capacity of 2TB as of current.
The C48-M2 connects to the mezzanine expansion connector HSE of the CompactPCI® CPU carrier. The C48-M2 is designed to fit into the 4HP (20.32mm) envelope of the CPU carrier board, but can also be used on some mezzanine side cards, for a 8HP or 12HP total front panel width assembly.
