Title: Sata connection
Post by: josue on 01 May 2015, 07:28:36 pm
Hello,

I want to connect a hard drive with a SATA cable. But I don know how to. I have found this diagram. I think it should be a possibility on the I/O connector (It's a PDMI plug). But I don't know where in this PDMI plug (there are 30 pin)

(https://www.globalscaletechnologies.com/skins/skin_4/images/mb_blockdiagram.jpg)

Have you an idea how to connect a SATA cable to the PDMI cable ? Or have you an idea of the number of this pin with SATA signal in the PDMI connector ? Have you an other idee how to connect a SATA hard drive in the mirabox ?

Best Regard

Thanks

I would think a USB-SATA adaptor would be the simplest solution.

Hello,

Yes I'm agree.

Actually I have a mirabax with a usb 3 hard drive. But the usb 3 protocol is unstable and is very heavy for that processor. I think sata protocol is more lite.

Thank

Not knowing anything about a Mirabox internals, I see from the diagram above that there is a PCIe expansion spare. I don't know for sure but I think PCIe is compatible hardwarewise with mSATA. Of course I don't know if the PCIe expansion is equipped with connector, there is space for a PCIe card nor if it is enabled in kernel. Just a thought.
