Raspberry Pi M.2 HAT+

by Raspberry Pi

Connect an M.2 solid state drive (or other peripheral) up to the speedy PCIe 2.0 interface on Raspberry Pi 5 with the official Raspberry Pi M.2 HAT+. It supports fast (up to 500 MB/s) data transfer to and from NVMe drives and other PCIe accessories.

Raspberry Pi M.2 HAT+ is an adaptor for connecting M.2 devices (such as NVMe drives and AI accelerators) to the single-lane PCI Express 2.0 interface on Raspberry Pi 5. It supports devices with an M.2 M key edge connector, in the 2230 and 2242 form factors. It is capable of supplying up to 3A to connected M.2 devices (to make sure that your devices are getting enough power we'd recommend using the official PSU).

The Raspberry Pi M.2 HAT+ conforms to the Raspberry Pi HAT+ specification and is autodetected by the latest Raspberry Pi software/firmware. It is supplied with a 16mm stacking header and threaded spacers, so it can be fitted to a Raspberry Pi 5 with the Raspberry Pi Active Cooler in place.

Features

  • Supports single-lane PCIe 2.0 interface (500 MB/s peak transfer rate)
  • Supports devices that use the M.2 M key edge connector
  • Supports devices with the 2230 or 2242 form factor
  • Capable of supplying up to 3A to connected M.2 devices
  • Includes power and activity LEDs
  • Conforms to the Raspberry Pi HAT+ specification
  • Supplied with ribbon cable, 16mm stacking header, threaded spacers and screws, and knurled double-flanged screw to secure and support the M.2 peripheral.

Getting Started

For best results with NVMe/PCIe, make sure your Raspberry Pi OS and Pi 5 firmware are updated to the most recent versions: sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
