RoHS Compliance
The VL-MPEs-S3 is RoHS-compliant.
ABOUT ROHS
In 2003, the European Union issued Directive 2002/95/EC regarding the Restriction of the use of
certain Hazardous Substances (RoHS) in electrical and electronic equipment.
The RoHS directive requires producers of electrical and electronic equipment to reduce to
acceptable levels the presence of six environmentally sensitive substances: lead, mercury,
cadmium, hexavalent chromium, and the presence of polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and
polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) flame retardants, in certain electrical and electronic
products sold in the European Union (EU) beginning July 1, 2006.
VersaLogic Corp. is committed to supporting customers with high-quality products and services
meeting the European Union’s RoHS directive.
Warnings
ELECTROSTATIC DISCHARGE
Warning!
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage circuit boards, disk drives, and other
components. The circuit board must only be handled at an ESD workstation. If an
approved station is not available, some measure of protection can be provided by
wearing a grounded antistatic wrist strap. Keep all plastic away from the board,
and do not slide the board over any surface.
VL-MPEs-S3 Reference Manual

Configuration and Setup
After removing the board from its protective wrapper, place the board on a
grounded, static-free surface, component side up. Use an antistatic foam pad if
available.
The board should also be protected inside a closed metallic antistatic envelope
during shipment or storage.
Note:
The exterior coating on some metallic antistatic bags is sufficiently conductive to
cause excessive battery drain if the bag comes in contact with the bottom side of
the board.
HANDLING CARE
Warning!
Care must be taken when handling the board not to touch the exposed circuitry
with your fingers.

Board Layout and Mounting
VL-MPES-S3 MOUNTING
The VL-MPEs-S3 is a full size Mini PCIe card and needs to be mounted into a full size Mini
PCIe site. On VersaLogic CPU boards, the module is secured using two nylon screws.
VersaLogic supplies 2 mm nylon screws (VL-HDW-110) and 2.5 mm nylon screws (VL-HDW108). On non-VersaLogic CPU boards, mounting might be accomplished using a latching system.
Note:
Be careful not to over tighten the nylon mounting screws. Optimum tightness is
1 lbf-in (0.1 N-m).
VL-MPES-S3 DIMENSIONS AND CONNECTORS
The VL-MPEs-S3 complies with Mini PCIe card (full size) dimensional standards. Dimensions
are given below to help with pre-production planning and layout.

SATA Port
The VL-MPEs-S3 provides one serial ATA (SATA) port via the mSATA / Mini PCIe connector,
which communicates at a rate of up to 3.0 Gbps (SATA II compliant). The connector at location
J1 is a SATA II-compatible right-angle connector with latching capability. Power to the SATA
drive must be supplied by an external power supply.
