What is the appropriate SATA data/power cable for the NUC10FNB board

In the Technical Product Specifications PDF, Section 2.2.4, Figure 12, this is the connector labeled "H". Table 13 indicates "SATA data/power connector (0.5 mm pitch ZIF)", and Table 14 has the pinouts with a note "Connector is Entery 6700K-J16N-00L, FPC 16 pin 0.5 mm pitch SMT"

 

Where could I get an appropriate cable? What is the product number?

MFisc29, Thank you for posting in the Intel® Communities Support.

 

In reference to your question, I checked our Intel® inventory and the SATA data/power cable for the Intel® NUC kit NUC10i7FNB is not available from our side, but you can always try to purchase it from "Gorite" or "Cables To Go":

https://www.gorite.com/

I will do further research on this matter to confirm if we can get the part number of the cable that you are looking for, as soon as I get any updates I will post all the details on this thread.

 

Any questions, please let me know.

Hi MFisc29,

 

I am looking into this issue and I would like to better understand the need for this part and how are you planning to use the NUC10iFNK in your design.

  • We dont provide a board only product for this NUC particular model. 
  • The 'tall' NUC10iFNK already comes configured with the correct SATA/data cable to the drive bay. 
  • The 'short' NUC10iFNK don't have room for a 2.5" drive bay, so we don't include that cable and there's no way to cable it to the outside of the chassis.

 

Please let me know your comments.

 

Thanks,

Ronny G

Sorry for the delay. We have a small network of "short" NUCs mounted in a container; we also have a requirement that all stable storage be separately secured in a physical safe when not in use. Thus, we run a SATA extension cable from the NUC board SATA port to an external drive. We build a caddy to hold all the drives for the NUCs in the container so we can easily move the disks to the safe. We'd like to use the Gen 10 NUCs, and would need a cable from the board to an external 2.5" form factor ssd. Alternatively, we're also considering an M.2 extension cable. We don't want to use the "tall" NUCs, as we then could fit fewer of them in the container. v/r mike

Hi MFisc29,

 

This product modification is not supported or recommended by Intel and voids the product warranty.

In addition to that, the cable that you are requesting is not commonly available and you may need to reach out to the cable manufacturer for product availability. I have provided you with this information via email.

 

Regards,

We understand the lack of support and voiding of the warranty. We were, however, hopeful that the cable would be readily available. Thanks for your help, Mike
