StarTech PEX2PCI4 overview

  • 1Description

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.

Convert a single PCIe slot to four additional external PCI slots without any driver or software installation
The external expansion enclosure simplifies swapping PCI cards, without ever having to move or take apart the main desktop/server
Expand an existing system's I/O capabilities without having to purchase an entirely new system
Expand a laptop's I/O capabilities with desktop PCI cards using the EC2PCI
Ideal for system testers and engineers who may need to regularly swap out I/O cards
Add full height cards to a small form factor system
Provides PCI support to systems with only PCIe slots
Provides data acquisition, telephony, storage, and audio capabilities with additional I/O expansion slots
