Can you provide sourcing information for the SATA cable for the BKNUC9VXQNB Compute Element H-Series?

The combined data and power connector is described on page 42 of the Technical Product Specifications as FPC Style 16-pin connector.

Hello NikosZ

 

Thank you for posting in the Intel Community.

 

I would like to confirm that you are looking for the availability of the SATA cable of the Intel® NUC?

Do you currently have any chassis for the Intel® nuc? Did they come as a bundle?

 

Regards,

Leonardo C.

No Intel chassis. Just a bare Compute Element board.

Hello NikosZ,

 

Apologies for the delay, it was a bit difficult to get the requested information.

The type of SATA connector on the board is "FPC,0.5mm,Gold 15u inch,Black,SMD-16P,ROHS,HF" unfortunately I can only recommend that you try to find a matching cable for this connector.

We do not provide this cable as a fulfillment item.

Can you at least post the pin out of the connector so we know that if we can find a cable, it's the correct one and we don't short out something on the very expensive computer element or the hard drive?. Or at the minimum refer us to a 3rd party that sells the cable. To tell someone to try and find the cable elsewhere isn't a very good answer if you are looking for repeat business. For what the compute element costs, there should have been a cable included.

Alan,

The pinout and connector information is provided in the TPS (Technical Product Specification) for the board.

Hope this helps,
