Tegra TX2 Developer Kit max. PCIe and PSU Wattage


question: does the PCIe x4 slot on the TX2 (actually TX1 as well but should be the same except of some hardware changes) developer kit carrier board deliver enough power to run a common PCIe SSC (solid state card) or an U.2 SSD via a PCIe converter add-in card?
The U.2 SSD or SSC I have in mind is listed with roughly 15 W.
Afaik the x4 slot should deliver up to 25 W?

The included power supply should at least be suitable enough I guess.


It depends on the real power request of device. The power supply of 12V on x4 slot is up to about 36W.
