CFExpress – M.2 Adapter, Now with better Signal / Power Integrity and Open Source

This is a newer iteration of the CFExpress – M.2 Adapter, with better routing to ensure signal integrity on the M.2 side. And the PCBs are now copper poured for both GND and +3.3V on the M.2 side.

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

The Mysterious CFexpress Card Specification / Pinout

It seems like CFexpress is going to replace CFast and CF card as the new de-facto DSLR storage medium, at least for Japanese camera manufacturers. The Internet kept its mouth very shut about what this CFexpress Card actually is, with specification no where to be found. However, piecing a few separate pieces of information together,…… Continue reading The Mysterious CFexpress Card Specification / Pinout

sparsebundle-fuse: Another Implementation for Reading / Writing MacOS Sparsebundles on Linux

There are already a sparsebundle implementation for Linux, but that’s read-only and only supports FUSE. This implementation is read / write, AND supports NBD (network block device) so the sparsebundle actually appears as a block device on the system, without you needing to loop mount the file in FUSE. There are some useful things that…… Continue reading sparsebundle-fuse: Another Implementation for Reading / Writing MacOS Sparsebundles on Linux
