Support Rasbperry Pi 4 Model B Only
The M.2 NVMe SSD adapter board for Raspberry Pi is a cutting-edge accessory designed to enhance the storage capabilities of your Raspberry Pi single-board computer. This adapter board serves as a bridge between the Raspberry Pi and M.2 NVMe solid-state drives, enabling you to take advantage of high-speed, reliable storage solutions.

In addition to providing expanded storage capabilities, the adapter board typically includes additional features such as power management, thermal management, and robust shielding. These features work together to ensure optimal performance and reliability while protecting your valuable data and preventing overheating issues.

With the M.2 NVMe SSD adapter board for Raspberry Pi, you can transform your Raspberry Pi into a powerhouse capable of handling demanding tasks and data-intensive applications. Whether you're building a media center, a network-attached storage (NAS) device, or a high-performance IoT gateway, this adapter board unlocks new possibilities by enabling lightning-fast storage and efficient data management.

Overall, the M.2 NVMe SSD adapter board for Raspberry Pi is a versatile and indispensable accessory that empowers you to leverage the full potential of your Raspberry Pi by providing expanded storage capabilities, high-speed data transfer, and enhanced performance.

The M.2 NVMe SSD adapter board for Raspberry Pi establishes a connection with the Raspberry Pi via pogo pins. Pogo pins, also known as spring-loaded pins or spring contacts, are spring-loaded mechanical contacts that make a temporary electrical connection. They are commonly used in electronic devices to establish a reliable and secure connection between two components.

In the case of the M.2 NVMe SSD adapter board, the pogo pins are strategically positioned on the board to align with the corresponding contact points on the Raspberry Pi. These contact points on the Raspberry Pi provide the necessary electrical signals and data transfer interfaces required for communication with the adapter board.

The use of pogo pins offers several advantages for the M.2 NVMe SSD adapter board. They provide a secure and reliable connection that ensures stable data transfer between the Raspberry Pi and the SSD. Additionally, pogo pins simplify the installation process since they eliminate the need for complex wiring or soldering.


NOTE: Raspberry Pi 4B and M.2 NVMe SSD does not include in the package! Additional purchase required!

How to configure SSD ?

  • We assume that you are using Raspberry Pi OS (bookworm) 2024-03-15

Step 1

  • Check if the SSD drive has been recognized
sudo lsblk

Step 2

  • Partitioning

Please divide the partition according to actual needs. Here I simply divided a partition and formatted it into ext4. Please refer to the configuration method related to the fdisk command to operate.

sudo fdisk /dev/sda
> Enter > Enter 
> w
sudo partprobe /dev/nvme0n1
  • Formating
sudo mkfs.ext4 /dev/sda1
  • Create mounting point and mount the partition to directory.
mkdir mydata
sudo mount -t ext4 /dev/sda1 /home/pi/mydata -v 
  • Grant access permission
sudo chown -R pi:pi /home/pi/mydata
sudo chmod -R 775 /home/pi/mydata
  • Modify the /etc/fstab to enable automount function.
sudo nano /etc/fstab 


/dev/sda1 /home/pi/mydata ext4   defaults,noatime  0 0 

save it and execute:

sudo umount /dev/sda1
sudo mount -a
sudo systemctl daemon-reload
df -Th
