The PCIe MiniCard carrier provides four PCIe MiniCard sockets on a PCI/104-Express form factor board. All four sockets have PCIe x 1 and USB interfaces and support full size and half size PCIe MiniCard modules.
The module provides full support to all sockets while consuming only a single lane of host SBC resources. SIM card support is provided for two sockets.
All power is derived from the PCIe/104 connector 5V power tab. The PCI-104 connector provides a pass through connection and is not used by the module.
Extended temperature capability (-40°C to +85°C) enables the board to operate in environments with extreme temperature swings, such as vehicles or outdoor installations. For further enhanced ruggedness, zero ohm resistors can replace jumpers.
