CompactPCI® Serial • Dual M.2 PCIe x4 (NVMe) SSD Module Carrier Board

The SE2-MOOD is a peripheral slot card for CompactPCI® Serial systems, equipped with three M.2 sockets for SSD (Solid-State Drive) modules.
Two of the M.2 sockets are suitable for NVMe type SSD modules, with a PCIe x4 Gen3 interface for superior data transfer rates. When used as main mass storage devices in a system, the NVMe SSDs can speed up the overall system performance dramatically. The third (optional) M.2 connector can accommodate a classic AHCI SATA style SSD, used e.g. as backup drive or legacy systems boot device. With respect to the NVMe sockets, the SE2-MOOD is suitable for all NGFF SSD module sizes defined by the M.2 specification up to the 22110 form factor (SATA socket max. 2280). In order to avoid mix-up, the M.2 sockets are mechanically coded. The NVMe module sockets are provided with an M-key, and the SATA module connector features a B-key, according to the PCI Express® M.2 Specification (PCI-SIG).
For optimum NVMe SSD module performance, a PCI Express® x8 enabled backplane slot would be required (CompactPCI® Serial fat pipe slot). In addition, SATA backplane support is needed for the SATA SSD module.
