I need a power connection cable between a normal Sata drive and the Intel NUC 3815 TYBE motherboard. Where can I get it?

​Is this cable and the board capable of powering a SATA HDD - Hard Disk Drive?

Otherwise the cable would be of no use.

The circuit is designed​ to provide enough power for a 2.5" SSD/HDD/SSHD. If this is what you have, then you are good to go.
