Increase I/O Capability
If you have a powerful application that requires the use of several PCI cards, increase the number of PCI slots in your system with a Magma PCI Expansion System.
The use of computer-specific host cards makes using your unique PCI cards and vital data as simple as "Plug and Play." All you need to do is to connect the Magma PCI Expansion System to the host card for your computer and turn it on. Use the same PCI cards on your laptop as you do on your desktop or server; just add a Magma CardBus or ExpressCard and connect the cable. The auto-switching power supply even allows you to work internationally by simply adding a power cord plug adapter.
Setting up your PCI cards and data in one chassis provides you an opportunity to use a consistent hardware configuration, regardless of what type of computer is available. Being able to use the same PCI cards, regardless of location also reduces project risks.
Host cards are available for the following systems: (1)Laptop: CardBus, ExpressCard/34, or ExpressCard/54 or (2) Desktop/Server:32-Bit PCI, or x1 PCIe.
