- PCIe to PCI Expansion Box
The external expansion chassis adds two full length (38cm) PCI slots (32-bit/33MHz) as well as two PCIe x1 (single lane) slots 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. The Expansion Chassis is a dependable I/O expansion solution.
