About SATA drive interface
« on: October 17, 2019, 03:58:18 PM »
Hello,

We are interested to try a SATA SSD drive on the TEBF0808 board. It's clear the  data port but not sure how to connect the  power connector and/or what cable to use....do you have any reference design or documentation about this?

Thanks.
Best regards.

Hello,
use PC power supply unit for the TEBF0808 over ATX connector. This can also used to supply the hard disc with is connected to the sata connector.

Reference designs(TE0808,TE0807 and TE0803) includes valid configuration for SATA, so you can use prebuilt Boot.bin and image.ub to see the HardDisk (use a know format for linux, like ext4 or FAT32)

We have some pictures how to connect everything on our Starterkit (with enclosure).
