52Pi P02 PCIe expansion board for Raspberry Pi 5 features a PCIe x1 slot

P02 PCIe Slot For Raspberry Pi 5

The 52Pi P02 is an expansion board for the Raspberry Pi 5 that converts the Pi’s PCIe into a PCIe x1 slot. The board gets connected to the bottom of the Pi and taps into the Pi’s power with the help of onboard pogo pins. It supports PCIe Gen2/Gen3 speeds and features a JST connector for external power input. While writing about the 52Pi NVdigi Expansion Board, I found the P02 PCIe expansion board for Raspberry Pi 5 interesting. It features a PCIe x1 slot, allowing you to install various off-the-shelf accessories like network cards, USB expansions, and more. You can even use a PCIe riser to connect a GPU with standard PC products.
