Is there any reference cellular module which being tested with Intel® NUC kit NUC8i5BEH via PCIe M.2? 

As the NUC kit doesn't come with SIM Slot, do we need additional carrier board?

Hello Lakshmi

Thank you for your response.


After checking this further, and as per the Technical Product Specifications section 2.2.4.2 Add-in Card Connectors, we would like to inform you that the M.2 port on the Intel® NUC is reserved only for an M.2 storage module; and the other M.2 port is reserved for the M.2 2230 pre-installed Wireless module.


Having said that, for the M.2 slot available on the Intel® NUC, other devices different than storage modules are neither supported nor validated according to the Technical Product Specifications.


Best regards,

Hello @Lakshmi

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.


We understand that you are looking to know if it is possible to install and use a SIM card or an M.2 adapter to be able to use a SIM card for cellular connectivity (e.g. 3G/4G/5G, etc). Is this correct?


Could you please provide the following details so we can check this further?


1- To install a SIM card adapter, do you mean to use the M.2 port reserved for the Wireless Module on the Intel® NUC for that purpose?

2- Please provide more details about your project and/or what you are trying to achieve.

3- How many Intel® NUCs would be deployed (or how many units would be impacted) for this request/project:

4- What would be the business impact?


Best regards,
