PCIe interface

Jump to solution

For the Joule module, it's advertised to have a PCIe-x1 interface multiplexed with USB3, Port1. Has this interface been tested, and is it supported? It is not mentioned in the expansion board design guide.

We would like to use a PCIe Packet Switch to two downstream PCIe devices: GbE and SATA. Since the diff pairs are multiplexed, how do you set it for PCIe?

Thanks,

Scott

Hi Scott,

 

 

Thank you for your interest in the Joule platform.

 

Yes, there's a PCIe slot in the Joule, however, the current BIOS doesn't enable the connector so it would be necessary a new BIOS which is currently not available and there's no ETA for it yet. If I'm not mistaken some months ago another user used a custom carrier board along with the Joule and apparently was able to edit the BIOS to enable the PCIe connector. You can check it here /thread/108364 https://communities.intel.com/thread/108364.
