I’m interested in trying the simpleRTK2B-mPCIe card I would like to use them on some Intel Nucs which may only have M2 or S-ata socket
Do you know if a converter is available to use simpleRTK2B-mPCIe cards on M2 socket?
From a logical point of view, how is the card seen by the computer?
Do two new serial ports like com3 com4 appear?
Are special drivers required?
What OS versions are supported?

Hi amorosik,
unfortunately we are not aware of mpcie to m2 adapters, m2 is smaller than mpcie thus it’s difficult to build an adapter.
From the PC point of view, when connecting mpcie to pc you just see the device as a virtual com port over USB. Exactly the same as connecting a normal simpleRTK2B via USB to PC.

It will work yes, but it’s not very compact 🙂
