microSD and SD

Both the microSD and SD card slots are positioned on the back side of the pico-SAM9G45 board.
NOTE: Only the microSD card can be used for booting the operating system, such as Android or Angstrom Linux distribution.

The microSD card needs special attention when installing the 1st time.
Please follow these 3 simple steps in order to insert a microSD card.

  • Lift hinge (if hinge is locked you need to unlock it by moving the hinge right/left)
  • Insert microSD into the hinge with gold-contacts facing the PCB (see image below)


  • Close hinge and lock.
