miniPCIe

We supply 5V into miniPCIe by using 47, 49, 51 reserved pins. Some cards might overheat or OS might not detected them.

Workaround - In order to eliminate the 5Vaux on pins 47, 49, 51 from the miniPCIe slot, follow this steps:

1) - cut the PCB trace marked with the two red lines as in the picture below.

2) - a thin wire must be soldered on the upper pin from R41 and on pin 3 from J7 on the backside of pico-SAM9G45 board,
3) - and also interrupt the PCB trace by cutting it in two places, like showing in this image with the red lines, see the picture below:

4) - after these modifications 5Vaux is eliminated from the miniPCIe.

minipcie pin 20 W_DISABLE# is directly connected to 3.3V. This might cause problems with some cards.

Workaround - Pin 20 from the miniPCIe - W_Disable# is not accessible for cutting. Though, you can raise and remove the connector pin from the PCB using a needle and a soldering iron.

USB

Workaround - the C74 value must be increased from 0.1uF to 1uF by replacing the capacitor resulting a longer USB hub reset timer.
