EKF presents the SE2-MOOD, a powerful mass storage solution for CompactPCI® Serial systems. The board is equipped with three M.2 sockets for SSD (Solid-State Drive) modules. Two M.2 sockets are suitable for NVMe type SSDs, while the third M.2 connector can accommodate a classic M.2 SATA style module. Additional external storage devices such as NAS and USB drive can be attached via optional GbE and USB3 front panel receptacles. The M.2 NVMe sockets are each controlled via PCI Express® x4, for a maximum data transfer rate up to 8GT/s (PCIe Gen3). The maximum NVMe M.2 module size is 22110. The third M.2 connector on the SE2-MOOD is suitable for an M.2 SATA SSD module up to the 2280 size, to be used e.g. as local backup storage solution.
