HighPoint SSD Series M.2 NVMe RAID Controllers
M.2 Form Factors
HighPoint SSD7100, 7500 and 6200 series controllers support four standard M.2 form factors with “M” keying; 2242, 2260, 2280 and 22110. Our two-port and 8-port controller support 2242, 2260 and 2280 models. Our 4-port models can support 2242, 2260, 2280 and 22110 models.
The illustration below shows the four most common M.2 form factors and an example of our 4-port controller PCB architecture. The red circles indicate which fastening screws correspond with a particular form factor (from left to right).
SSD "Key Type"
An SSD “Key” refers to the socket type (aka “golden fingers”). HighPoint NVMe solutions are designed to accept standard M.2 SSDs that utilize the “M” key layout:
HighPoint NVMe solutions cannot support SSDs that utilize B-Key or B+M Key
Regarding the first illustration – some of you likely noticed the example 2260 form-factor SSD utilizes a B+M Key type, and is therefore not compatible. This is correct; most currently available 2260 form-factor M.2 NVMe SSDs utilize the B+M key type.
