StarTech.com's innovative PCI Express to PCI Expansion Chassis provides a quick and simple solution to I/O expandability on almost any PCI Express (PCIe) enabled system. Adding external PCI slots to a server/workstation or laptop, this cost-effective and time-saving method of simply adding additional PCI cards to a server/workstation or providing a platform to be able to swap PCI add-in cards between a mobile and desktop setup is the optimal method of maximizing the I/O capabilities of new or existing systems.

The external expansion chassis adds four PCI slots (32-bit/33MHz) to the host computer system, through a single PCI Express connection. Providing total bandwidth of up to 250MBps from the x1 PCIe host controller card, which allows the host computer to function as though the cards in the expansion chassis were connected directly to the motherboard.

For mobile applications, the Expansion Chassis can be connected to an ExpressCard enabled laptop using StarTech.com's ExpressCard connection cable (EC2PCI), which adds the same functionality offered by the Expansion Chassis to a laptop. This eliminates the expense and need of having to purchase different card adapters for the laptop. A dependable I/O expansion solution, the Expansion Chassis is backed by StarTech.com's 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

The StarTech.com Advantage
  • Convert a single PCI Express slot to four additional external PCI slots without any driver or software installation required
  • External expansion enclosure simplifies swapping PCI cards, without ever having to move or take apart the main desktop/server
  • Backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support
Supports any operating system.
No additional drivers or software required.

Applications
  • Expand an existing system's I/O capabilities without having to purchase an entirely new system.
  • Ideal for system testers, and engineers who may need to regularly swap out I/O cards.
  • Expand a laptop's I/O capabilities with desktop PCI cards with the EC2PCI.
  • Add full height cards to a small form factor system.
  • Provide PCI support to systems with only PCIe slots.
  • Provide data acquisition, telephony, storage and audio capabilities by having additional I/O expansion slots.
