This board allows you to create an extra USB port in your system by breaking out the USB signals which are always present on miniPCIe slots. This is useful e.g. for adding USB peripherals to small form factor PCs or to add an internal bootable USB stick to server systems that feature an internal miniPCIe slot. The board fits both full-size and half-size slots; you can break off half of the board cleanly to fit it into smaller mPCIe slots.
This board has a shared history with my mSATA to SATA board listing, formerly known as mSATA to SATA/USB. Throughout most of mSATA's history, the mSATA port was a shared mSATA/mPCIe slot which featured pinning for both SATA and USB. This led me to design an mSATA to SATA and USB board. Unfortunately, as time progressed dedicated mSATA slots in modern machines have apparently dropped USB support. Therefore I split this product from the mSATA to SATA board and now I have two separate listings.
This is one of - as far as I know - two designs that works in half-size slots and is available to the general public (instead of only available with a MOQ of 50 from alibaba). It's also relatively cheap.

Hey there! Like most people on this website I make electronics. In fact, I design a *lot* of electronics, over 100 designs per year. Most of them I make for me or for customers. Sometimes, I find a design so handy that I like to share it with others. For that, there is my Tindie store. My name is mux by the way, and I don't just make electronics, I make muxtronics!
As for more of my background: I am an electronic design engineer by trade and mostly design power electronics - that is: dc/dc converters, AC power supplies, power measurement equipment, electronic loads and the like. Aside from that I have a fairly broad engineering education and background, which means I like to do systems design, design for manufacturing, build enclosures using a variety of methods and so on.
I also blog and vlog, so check me out on my website: https://muxtronics.nl
