The 1 Slot x1 PCIe to Half-Length PCI Expansion Unit from Magma is the most portable method for taking the PCI bus outside the computer. It allows you to plug-in a full-sized, power-demanding, heat-generating PCI card into the half-length chassis.

You can use your high-end PCI card wherever you go without the expense of buying a duplicate card or carrying it along to install in another computer. You can simply add your PCI card to the PCI Expansion System and then connect it to your desktop computer or server using the PCIe host card.

The use of computer specific host card makes using your PCI card as simple as plug and play. All you need to do is connect the PCI Expansion System to the host card of your computer and turn it on. You can use the same PCI card on your laptop as well as your desktop or server by simply adding a Magma host card and connecting the cable.

Setting up your PCI card in a portable chassis gives you an opportunity to use a consistent hardware configuration, regardless of the type of computer available. Being able to use the same PCI card, regardless of location also reduces the project risks.
