Crimson Canyon SATA Connector

For the Crimson Canyon the SATA connector appears to be an 20 pin 0.5mm pitch straight FPC Header. Is there additional documentation available on this header which describes the mating connector, e.g., the manufacturer and part number?

 

I am not familiar with the type of SATA connector, is there an example of where it is used in another design?

Thanks,

Harry

Hello laquebrada,

 

 

Thank you for posting on the Intel ® communities.

 

 

I can see that you are looking for information regarding the SATA connector for the Crimson Canyon.

 

 

In order to provide you with the most accurate information I will need to have a specific model so please provide me with the model of the NUC you own. Once I have this information I will be able to get the information.

 

 

Let me know.

David,

I was already aware of this document, perhaps I need to clarify my needs. I have never seen a SATA connector like this before. Is there a standard mating cable for it? If so, what is the manufacturer and part number?

Thanks again,

laquebrada

Hello laquebrada,

 

 

Thank you for your response.

 

 

I am currently reviewing this to find the most accurate information for you. In the meantime however, please provide me with a picture of the board of your unit showing the connector that you are referring to, this is just to confirm.

I viewed the image provided by martmann, but was unable to identify the cable manufacturer and part number from the photo. There is some text on the cable, but I cannot read it. Is there a higher resolution image?

Thanks,

laquebrada

Hello laquebrada,

 

 

Most drives connect by IDE or SATA cables; however, some hard drives are connected via an interposer, used primarily in small form factor systems ( NUC, Laptops, etc). The interposer connects the hard drive directly to the board.

 

 

Each system manufacturer usually orders these custom for their system, so although you may be able to find similar interposer kits, it may be difficult to find one that fits your unit. Intel does not offer the interposer and ribbon as a warranty replacement

 

 

Please note that Intel warranties the entire Mini PC and making hardware changes may void the warranty.

 

 

If you are experiencing issues with the unit, you can contact Intel ® Customer Service for support and warranty options. Attached you will find an example of an interposer, a ribbon and a drive.

 

 

I hope this helps.

Don't know if this helps, but the mating "connector" is just the end of a ribbon cable used to connect the 2.5" drive cage to the motherboard, t can be seen https://techsterweb.com/2018/09/11/crimson-canyon/ here in the section "Under The Hood".
