    Once, someone wanted to help us with SATA for OpenRex, He has never finish it, but it can give you an idea how to do it. Here are the files:

    PS: You may not be able to mount anything under CPU as there will be probably components (unless you find a stand off solution - but still as Paul van Avesaath mentioned, you need to be careful about heat dissipation).

    PSS: There are also different solutions, e.g. have a look here:

    Rather you could use a connector SATA Connector and connect your SSD.
    SATA has 7 Data Pins and 15 Power Pins. Check SATA Version before using.

    yes there is a guidline out there.. just google for 2.5" ssd mounting holes.. there should be a lot of info on google...
    just put holes in the pcb.. and screw it down.. there should be some cages i guess.. but most of the time they just bolt them down on the pcb.
    if you want a bracket for it.. best thing to do is buy them and make them work with your design..

    i would not reccommend putting a ssd on the bottom side of the CPU.. the heat dissipation of a CPU can cause issues.. not for the ssd mind you but more for the CPU..

    SATA hard drive on PCB

    I have to add a 2.5" SATA hard disk to my circuit. I have two questions:

    1- How to mount the HDD to my PCB? Is there any standard cage for mounting SATA disk on PCB?

    2- is it safe or good to mount the disk just under the CPU or micro chip?
