1.What do you need to use Raspberry Pi X850 V3.1 / V3.0 mSATA Storage Board?
- A Raspberry Pi board(Pi 3B+, 3B, 2B, B+)
- The Raspberry Pi Power Supply
- A mSATA solid-state drive (SSD)
- A X850 V3.1 / V3.0 use matching case (optional)
2.What to do if the X850 device can not be recognized?
1.Please make sure your all the hardware installation is right, please refer to Installation Guide.
2.Try to use the blue usb cable to replace the usb connector to check if it is the usb connector problem.
3.Please remove your ssd card and check if the raspberry pi can find the device.
4.Please check your raspberry pi firmware, or use another raspberry pi to have a try. As there maybe some error happen during the download.
Please check the above verify code (MD5 code or SHA1 code etc.) to check your image file if is complete. you can use the MD5 tools to get it.
3. Is it possible to switch off the LED indicator on X850 board?
No, the LED on X850 board is not support to switch off, and you can use some tape to cover the led if light affected in the dark.
4. Why the Raspberry Pi WIFI signal affected when use X850 board?
If you have happened to meet WiFi signal problem, it maybe you use the SAMSUNG SSD Which will have EMC (Electro Magnetic Compatibility) problem. We solved this problem on X850 V3.1 by placing the MSATA under the PCB board.
Features of the new version 3.1 V3.0
- About EMC (Electro Magnetic Compatibility) problem, We solved this problem on X850 V3.1 by placing the MSATA under the PCB board.
- When using the X850 as a bootable hard disk, the problem of 'reboot' command is solved；
- The X850 board can be mounted under the raspberry pi, retaining the use of GPIO;
- Same size as the Raspberry Pi motherboard
- Replaced the power supply mode (using the Micro usb power supply instead of the GPIO power supply, additional power may be required only when using a large capacity hard disk)
- All use patch processing technology, product quality is more reliable;
Powered by the Raspberry Pi motherboard (only requires extra power when using a large capacity hard drive)
- The X850 expansion board provides a complete storage solution for raspberry pi, only mSATA interface SDD hard disk is suitable for X850 Board;
- For Use With: Raspberry Pi 3 Model B/ 2B / B+
