52Pi NVMe HATs for Pi 5 will Support 2230, 2242, 2260, and 2280 Sizes SSDs


52Pi recently launched two NVMe M.2 SSD HATs for the Raspberry Pi 5, called N04 and N05. It supports a range of NVMe SSDs like 2230, 2242, 2260, and 2280, with Gen 3 speeds. Additional features include cooling vents, slots for display/camera cables, and a gold-plated PCB for better performance.

Previously, we have seen many companies build NVMe HATs for the Pi5 like Waveshare M.2 HAT+Pimoroni NVMe Base, PineBerry Pi HatDrive, SupTronics X100x Series, and Geekworm X1004 HAT+ feel free to check those out if you are looking for NVMe HATs.

The N04 and N05 boards support NVMe M.2 SSDs, offering PCIe Gen2 and Gen3 connectivity, enhanced cooling, and gold-plated PCBs for improved performance. Both feature ultra-short PCIe lines for reliable connections, LED activity indicators, and a compliant 3A power system. Each package includes installation accessories.

52Pi NVMe HATs Features:

  • Raspberry Pi 5 Ready: Specifically designed for the Raspberry Pi 5.
  • NVMe M.2 Support: Compatible with 2230, 2242, 2260, and 2280 sizes, easy to install.
  • PCIe Gen2 & Gen3: High-speed PCIe x1 interface.
  • Cooling Design: Enhanced with ventilation holes.
  • FPC Cutouts: For Display/Camera cables.
  • Gold-Plated PCB: Superior electrical performance.
  • Optimized PCIe Lines: Reliable, fast PCIe 3.0 signaling.
  • Activity LED: For M.2 disk activity.
  • M.2 Power System: Up to 3A on the 3.3V rail, M.2 compliant.
  • Included Accessories: FPC PCIe ribbon, screws, spacers, custom SSD mount.

Inside the box for the N04, you’ll find everything you need to get set up: the main M.2 2280 PCIe to NVMe adapter, a 40mm long PCIe FFC cable, four M2.5x16mm spacers, six M2.5x5mm screws, and one M2x4mm screw to securely attach your NVMe M.2 SSD. Additionally, if you are looking for documentation it can be found on 52Pi  N04 and N05 Wiki page.

You can buy the N04 HAT for $16.99 and the N05 HAT for $15.99 directly from the 52Pi website. Additionally, these products are available on AliExpress, with the N04 priced at $15.29 and the N05 at $14.39, offering a more affordable option for shoppers.
