MPCI-e cards can be used to connect wireless adapters, solid-state device storage and other performance boosters for laptops and mobile devices. PCIe is a point-to-point technology in which each serial link has a full duplex pair of differential signals, known as a lane. PCIe supports up to 32 lanes, but mPCIe supports only one.
SATA was introduced in 2000, and stands for serial AT attachment. This cable will connect host bus adapters to hard drive storage devices via a USB port. These storage devices may include everything from a solid state drive (SSD) to an optical drive, hard drive, or hard disk drive (HDD). This cable is the successor to the parallel ATA attachment. 2b1af7f3a8
