MiniPCIe on NanoPi Duo

Moderators: chensy, FATechsupport

I am trying to build a wifi mesh network for urban robotics and would like to use the nanopi duo for the meshnetworking algorithms. I saw that an option for purchasing the NanoPi Duo is the "Kingspec 64GB MiniPCIe mSATA Half-size SSD for Industrial (+$45.00)", while I don't want to purchase this SSD I would like to purchase this WiFi Transciever on Mouser

https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Do ... LDdA%3d%3d

That uses a MiniPCIe. Does anyone have any experience doing anything similar? Is there any documentation you can point me towards?

Thanks in advance!

But there will be firstly another problem: the WiFi-Card is MiniPCIe full lenght and the Mini-Shield-Board for the Duo
has one a free place for a half-szie MiniPICe-Card
See the Duo-Set at:

Or do you want to build your own shield-pcb?

That is mSATA implementation only. Not mPCI
@guidol - Thanks for the response. I am planning on doing a custom PCB, I am mainly concerned with the schematic to get the Duo to communicate over MiniPCIe and not the physical size (unless there is a non-physical fit issue I am missing).

Thanks again,

Andy
