More CFExpress (CFX) Card Experimentation – PCB Design for a Passive CFExpress – M.2 Adapter

As I mentioned in a previous post, it seems that it’s totally possible to convert a NVME SSD to a CFExpress Card. So here’s my first take on that.

Adapter PCB Layout

J1 is the PCB edge connector for the CFExpress card, J2, J3 are FFC (ribbon cable) connectors, and J4 is the M.2 connector.

I’m 99% sure that this will not work on the first try. But I think it has a good chance of working after a few iterations. I have sent my gerber files to OSHPark for fabrication, wish me luck.
