Build your own CFexpress card

Build your own CFexpress card

  • 2 min read

If you are fed up with the high prices of CFexpress cards? If you are, I have some news for you…

It is really easy to build your own and save lots of money. Not only do they work the same, in some cases they are even faster than those you buy from the major manufacturers.

In the video below, I explain how to make a CFexpress card using just a few off the shelf components. The CFexpress standard was created with the idea in mind that existing and very robust technologies would be the foundation for this type of memory. These components are already in use in computers and tablets everywhere.

Here is the part list:

Metal CFexpress Type-B M.2 NVME 2230 SSD Card Adapter:
