I'm thinking of an experiment;
take an intel nuc8if and desolder the wifi module, wire-hack an M2 (or apple) wifi card onto it :cool:

I have a lot of experience in fixing GPU's and other large BGA chips, so desoldering would not be the challange. it is more the investigating the pinout of this module.

So if anyone has more info on this module (datasheet and footprint/pinout info) would be appriciated

edit:

The more I read about this NUC wifi module (intel 9560d2w; 1216 m.2. solder-on form factor) the less likely it seem to get to get this working. The module is an RF-only module that communicates with a part of the SOC called Pulsar via CNVi bus.
Jaymonkey explained this in a post in the Broadcom thread

The BCM943602CS is not your problem. Anything 2.4GHz will mess with Bluetooth.
I stopped using wifi to try to avoid BT issues. But when using BT headsets (wifi off!), signal is not strong, there are sound disturbances while listening to music (mp3 from hard drive).

Might be BCM943602CS bad, should I get another card or BT modul or maybe better antennas?

Hello, i Have an issue with undetected WIFI card.

I am using NGFF key B/M adaptor with BCM94360CS2 card. Bloototh works OOB, WIFI card is not detected in DPCImanager, nor in PCIe devices in BIOS UEFI. Tried both M/2 slots, my gigabyte motherboard is supposed to support PCIe on both of them. I read solutions for similar problem for key A/E adapters by masking of some of the pins on the connector, but as far as i know on M type M.2 socket there is no pins for disabling WIFI and BT. I tried wvery possible setting in BIOS, nothing works. I'm starting to think that M.2 slots on my motherboard are reserved just for storage PCIe, but hope thats not the case, becouse i don't feel like replacing motherboard :( I searched the forum pretty theroughly i think, and found no succes stories for apple card working on B+M adaptors. Does anyone have any idea how to make this card detectable? or any other solutions for native WIFI/BT on this motherboard? (PCIe slot is occupied by discrete GPU)

For people with small formfactor pc’s, have a look at this device ngff to Apple wifi wit flexcable, works like a charm wit my S200
(ngff e-key is below the SSD and only a 2230 card (like this one) fits because of a heatsink that gets in the way)
