The black PCIe to 4-Slot PCI Expansion System from StarTech adds four external PCI expansion card slots to a desktop or laptop computer system. It provides a quick and simple solution to I/O expandability on almost any PCIe enabled system. 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/33 MHz) to the host computer system through a single PCIe connection. It provides total bandwidth of up to 250 MB/s from the PCIe x1host 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 the 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.
