eMMC onboard

UDOO BOLT features an embedded multi media card memory of 32GB.

The eMMC use a e.MMC 5.1 HS400 compliant interface.

Heads up! As a flash-based storage device, excessive drive access, particularly write commands, reduces its useful life. Therefore, it is strongly suggested to NOT create a swap partition on the eMMC device.

M.2 SATA/PCI-e x2 Slot: Socket 2 Key B type 2242/3042/2260

The mass storage capabilities of the UDOO BOLT are completed by an M.2 SSD Slot, which allows plugging M.2 Socket 2 Key B Solid State Drives with SATA interface or PCI-e x2 interface (PCI-e x1 is also supported).

The connector used for the M.2 SATA/PCI-e slot is CN18, is a standard 75 pin M.2 Key B connector, located at the bottom of the board.

On the UDOO BOLT board there is also a Threaded Spacer which allows the placement of M.2 Socket 2 Key B SATA/PCI-e modules in 2260 size.

It is possible to also place modules in 2242 or 3042 size, by using a M/F Spacer, which allows fixing the M.2 module on the spacer already available on the PCB, deemed for the fixing of the M.2 Key E.

In the Official Accessories section you can find a M.2 SSD Transcend MTS600 2260 drive compatible with this connector, available in the UDOO shop.

M.2 NVMe Slot: Socket 3 Key M Type 2280

Another possibility to connect mass storage devices is given by the M.2 Key M Slot, which allows the plugging of M.2 High Capacity SSD NVMe drives with PCI-e x4 interface.

The connector used for the M.2 SSD slot is CN17, which is a standard 75 pin M.2 Key M connector, located at the bottom of the board.

On the UDOO BOLT board there is also a Threaded Spacer which allows the placement of M.2 Socket 3 Key M PCI-e SSD modules in 2280 size.

Info In this thread of the UDOO Forum you can find an unofficial but useful discussion about others compatible NVMe memories: NVME M.2 SSD Compatibility List

SATA

The AMD Ryzen™ Embedded V1000 family of Processors embed a SATA Controller, which offers two SATA III 6.0 Gbps interfaces.

Of these interfaces, one SATA channel is carried out to a standard male S-ATA connector, CN14 (the other SATA channel is available on the M.2 Key B socket).

A dedicated power connector CN15, can be used to give supply to 2.5" Hard Disk Drives (or Solid State Drives) connected to the SATA male connector.
The dedicated power connector is a 4-pin male connector. You can find this cable in the SATA data and power cables kit.

Heads up! To connect a 3.5" Hard Drive you need to provide SATA +5V+12V combo power supply from an external source.
