• All,
    I'm eagerly awaiting deliver of an SG-2220 and am already wondering about upgrade options…

    What M.2 or mSATA cards are supported?
    Links?

    Can the memory be replaced with something larger like:

    or

    thanks..


  • I'm eagerly awaiting deliver of an SG-2220 and am already wondering about upgrade options…

    Upgrade options are the following;

    • 1 miniPCIe slot for WiFi and Modem
    • 1 M.2 slot for M.2 SSDs

    What M.2 or mSATA cards are supported?

    I really don´t know but as I see it right there are no mSATA option for you
    only then the M.2 option. And the RAM is also not changeable it is soldered on the boards!


  • The memory is soldered onto the board - it cannot be upgraded or changed.


  • I also notice several different length M.2 SSD's. Might want to ensure you buy the correct length one. Here is a sampling. Notice different lengths.

    It looks like you want a 42mm long SSD for this build. Just my guess from the picture


  • Looking closely at the pictures I notice two additional holes in the M.2 slot area. I am assuming you can move the hold down post to the two other locations so you can use different length SSD's. This is just a guess from the photos. I don't have one yet.

    I wonder what the tolerance is for power input. For mobile usage I like 11V-13V input range…


  • OK got my today. Noticing the SSD support is as follows. 30mm, 42mm and 60mm Length M.2 MSATA slot.

    And what is with the width?
    Are they for 12, 16, 22 or 30mm?


  • Mesuring the socket width i get 25mm/1". I thought the only difference in the width was the notch….SG-2220 has one notch. So looking at the spec I would say 22mm wide and style B. Will let you know when mine shows up.


  • Will let you know when mine shows up.

    That would be really cool to know. Thanks for that.


  • I have a nice Chinese adjustable bench-top power supply and might give this board the power test to see its range..I usually start my builds with it -as it shows amperage drawn. Usually I would fire up an UBCD4WIN thumbdrive and run prime95 for a while..I need to find some new tools for console-only box usage.

    I bought an 16GB Sandisk SSD…15 bucks... I prefer loading pfSense on removable device until I am comfortable with the eMMC..


  • We have a version of memtest86+ that uses the serial port that can be used to test the boxes.

    Be careful with undervoltage and overvoltage testing, in theory the power supply will shutdown if it gets too out of range, but too far from nominal 12v can over heat the on-board regulators.  There is a on board temperature sensor, near the power regulators that could be polled, but I don't have the information on how to do that, but should soon.


  • I assume the SG-2220 upgrade ports are on the bottom of the board? SG-2220 internals - top of board:

    It appears 60mm is the maximum length. Can anyone recommend a low-cost, compatible drive?

    For example, would this Transcend 64GB MTS600 60 mm M.2 for $39 be a good option? http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KLTPVJ0


  • It appears 60mm is the maximum length. Can anyone recommend a low-cost, compatible drive?

    As I am right informed, there are three different length, M.2 2242 (42 mm), M.2 2260 (60 mm) and M.2 2280
    (80 mm) so it can be that you will be able to insert also a M.2 "2242" in 42 mm length, perhaps. It is more
    pending on how many holes are there to mount and fix the M.2 drive.

    The bottom side might be enlightening us all, but for getting real informations about it perhaps someone from
    the ADI or pfSense team could short jump in and answer this question adequate.

    With PCIe 3.0 x4 (2242, 2280) there will be coming up many fine options for a fast caching proxy inside
    of pfSense, looking towards to the M.2 (2280) Samsung950 Pro (2500 MBit/s write / 1500 MBit/s read).
