Since the mSATA drive utilizes the SATA interface provided in the mSATA connector (i.e. its not an NVMe device), using it in this adapter should work just fine (the drive will be recognized and accessed over the SATA interface. Whether this adapter will actually fit in the space available in the NUC chassis is another question - one that you will have to determine on your own (I don't have such an adapter to check this myself)...

Let’s wait if our community members already tested this SSD adapter and give us their feedback. Intel has not tested SSD adapters yet.
