The Silverjaw Lure is dual break-out board providing both an mPCIe and mSATA slot via MinnowBoard development boards’ high speed expansion (HSE) connector. The Silverjaw Lure provides switching power supplies (+3VDC & +1.5VDC) so it is very efficient and minimizes the current draw from the board’s main +5V power supply.

NOTE: See open source collateral for detailed specifications.
- Dual interfaces: mSATA socket and mPCIE socket
- Both sockets have a quick release “snap in” latch mechanism that does not require screws
- RoHS compliant
- Operating temperature: -40°C to +85°C
- Storage temperature: -65°C to +150°C

The mSATA socket interfaces to the board’s PCI express bus which provides a high bandwidth interface for memory cards. The board can be configured to boot from the mSATA memory card. The mSATA socket supports both half-size and full-sized mSATA memory cards.
The mPCIe socket interfaces to the board’s PCI express bus which provides a high bandwidth interface for mPCIe cards. The mPCIe socket accepts the following type of mPCIe cards: WiFi, SATA drive interfaces, SD memory card, USB 2.0, USB 3.0, RS-232 serial cards, etc. Tin Can Tools recommends using a +5VDC@3A power supply when using the Silverjaw Lure with MinnowBoard development boards.
Suspend / Resume disables PCI-E =
Suspending and resuming the board that the Silverjaw is attached to may cause the device on the PCI-E bus to not resume correctly. Rebooting should resolve the issue. This is because the soft reset signal isn’t connected. This is expected to be fixed in the Rev B of the Silverjaw boards (no current ETA).
