    he X1000 HAT unlocks the true potential of the Raspberry Pi 5 by leveraging its new PCIe interface. This innovative add-on board transforms your Raspberry Pi into a high-performance computing powerhouse, thanks to its compatibility with NVMe M.2 SSDs

    Blazing-fast data transfers: Ditch the sluggishness of traditional storage solutions. The X1000 harnesses the power of PCIe, offering significantly higher bandwidth than the Raspberry Pi's standard USB interface. This translates to dramatically faster data transfer speeds, ideal for large file transfers, and database management applications. NVMe M.2 SSDs, with their lightning-fast read and write speeds, further amplify the performance gains, making the Raspberry Pi a true contender for resource-intensive tasks.

    Ultra-fast booting and improved responsiveness: The X1000 paired with an NVMe SSD slash boot times, allowing your Raspberry Pi to run in a flash. This translates to improved responsiveness across the entire system, whether launching applications, opening files, or multitasking between different tasks. Your Raspberry Pi will feel snappier and more efficient than ever before.

    Note: The bootloader of Raspberry Pi 5 needs to be updated to Version: 30de0ba5 – 2024/01/5 to enable the NVMe driver and boot from it.  Please refer to this tutorial to update the bootloader of Raspberry Pi 5.

    Flexibility and expandability: The X1000 isn't just about speed. It also offers a level of flexibility and expandability that opens up a world of possibilities for your Raspberry Pi projects. The shield remains compatible with other HATs, allowing you to stack functionalities like cameras, sensors, and displays on top of the storage boost. Additionally, the reserved space for a POE (Power over Ethernet) module allows for powering the Raspberry Pi and the shield directly through a network cable, eliminating the need for a bulky power adapter.

    The X1000 shield is more than just a hardware upgrade. It's a gateway to unlocking the full potential of the Raspberry Pi 5, transforming it into a versatile and powerful computing platform for a wide range of applications.

    • FFC length is only 30mm.
    • Supports installation of the official active cooler.
    • With ACT LED indicator: 
      • On: Power OK/Standby
      • Flashing: Reading/Writing
    • Reserved space for POE module installation.
    • Supports 2230/2242 NVME M.2 SSD only.
    • Can power the X1001 shield directly from the FFC PCIe ribbon (up to 5W continuous power).
    • 40-pin header connections automatically supply power from GPIO, avoiding power supply issues for large-capacity SSDs.
