The Allegro 2-Port USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C PCIe 3.0 Card from Sonnet supports data transfers at up to twice as fast as USB 3.2 Gen 1, and can also deliver 15W of power per port to USB Type-C bus-powered devices. It adds two 10 Gb/s USB Type-C (USB 3.2 Gen 2) ports to your Mac Pro with PCIe slots, Windows PC, Linux computer, or Thunderbolt to PCIe card expansion system. This PCIe computer card supports data transfers up to 960 MB/s when connected to a USB Type-C SSD RAID device. The ports communicate with the host that 3A of VBUS current is available, enabling this solution to support USB Type-C bus-powered SSDs and SSD RAID devices that need 15W during demanding write operations.

Regulates Power to Each Port

The Allegro card regulates its own power without requiring a back-of-the card power cable connection, thus enabling full compatibility in any computer or Thunderbolt expansion chassis that doesn't have these power connectors available. It regulates power to each port independently, giving each one protection from power glitches on the adjacent port. Without this protection (such as found on an ordinary card), connects and disconnects of one device may cause auto-disconnects of the other.

Resettable Fuses

The Allegro USB Type-C card features a resettable fuse on each port to protect the card and computer should there be a cable or peripheral failure. Should a fuse trip on the Sonnet card, you can reset it simply by shutting down the computer.

PCIe Auto-Negotiation

The Allegro USB Type-C PCIe features PCI Express auto-negotiation. The card automatically negotiates to a x1 data link in a PCIe 3.0 slot, and to a x2 link in a PCIe 2.0 slot, giving full bandwidth to both generations of PCIe slots, ensuring great performance in any configuration.

Optimized for Thunderbolt

The Allegro USB Type-C PCIe card is ideal for use in any Thunderbolt 2 or Thunderbolt 3 to PCIe card expansion chassis, including Sonnet's Echo Express or xMac Thunderbolt to PCI Express card expansion systems, offering full performance wherever you install it.

Easy Installation

This PCIe card installs easily into any PCIe x4 (mechanical) slot; both low-profile and full-height mounting brackets are included. The card features hot-pluggable and hot-swappable device connection support with automatic device configuration, and works with all USB-IF compliant USB peripherals.
