SONNET ECHOPRO PCIE THNDRBLT ADP/2SLOT
Today's ultra-light notebooks, mini and All-in-One desktop computers now have tremendous processing power, power that many people thought would only be possible in full-size desktop computers. Smaller in size and portable, they're very desirable. For professionals in the creative fields, this processing power alone is not enough. You need expansion slots to install specialty cards to connect various video and audio inputs, for processing data and to connect to high-speed storage and networks. The problem is, only desktop computers (which aren't very portable) have slots and currently available PCIe expansion for notebook computers has been very limited in performance, until now. If you've got a computer with Thunderbolt technology, then the Sonnet Echo Express Pro Thunderbolt Expansion Chassis for PCIe cards are exactly what you need.
Sonnet harnessed the potential of Thunderbolt technology to enable you to connect high performance expansion cards to computers without expansion slots. Developed by Intel and brought to market with technical collaboration from Apple, Thunderbolt technology supports high-performance data services and high-resolution displays through a single, compact port. Based on PCI Express (PCIe) and DisplayPort technologies, Thunderbolt provides support for two channels on the same connector with 10 Gb/s of throughput per channel in both directions. Connected via a Thunderbolt cable, Echo Express Pro containing two expansion slots carries the computer's PCIe channel to the slots and passes both PCIe and DisplayPort data through a second Thunderbolt port for daisy chaining other devices.
