MiniPCI Adapter board has 124-pin MiniPCI connector for connection standard MiniPCI add-in board. Flat PCI Express cable (12 inches) is used for connection between x1 PCI Express host board and MiniPCI Adapter board and provides flexible connection between MiniPCI expansion add-in board and the motherboard.
The power for MiniPCI add-in board (5V and 3.3V) is supplied via 124-pin MiniPCI connector. The MiniPCI Adapter board has standard 4-pin “Floppy drive” power connector for taking power (5V) from a standard ATX power supply or from an external power supply.
