Part No. ECHO-EXP-SE1 - IN STOCK.
Use One PCIe Expansion Card with Thunderbolt Computers
Lacking Expansion Slots
Today's ultra-light notebooks, mini, and all-in-one desktop computers now have tremendous processing power—power that many thought would only be possible in full-size workstation or large desktop computers. Smaller in size and more portable, they're very desirable. For pros in the creative fields, processing power alone is not enough. A prime example is the latest Mac Pro®. Proven to be a processing powerhouse and packed with Thunderbolt™ 2 and USB 3.0 ports, it lacks the PCIe expansion slots necessary to install specialty cards to connect various video and audio inputs, for transcoding data, and to connect to high-speed storage and networks. With the Echo™ Express SE-I, Sonnet has created a solution that leverages the paradigm shift enabled by Thunderbolt technology, allowing PCIe expansion slots to be connected outside a computer. This desktop expansion system makes it possible for you to connect one professional video capture, audio interface, SAS or SATA HBA, 16Gb or 8Gb Fibre Channel, 10Gigabit Ethernet, and RAID controller PCIe cards to any Mac® or Windows® computer with a Thunderbolt port.
