The 1U rackmount PCIe 2.0 expansion system has two Thunderbolt Ports and mounts a Mac mini inside a specially designed enclosure that also contains 2 x16 (x4 mode) PCIe 2.0 slots, a 150W power supply and an installed Gigabit Ethernet card.
This system enables users to plug in two PCIe 2.0 adapter cards (one half-length and one full-length) to slots connected to the Mac mini via locking Thunderbolt cables while allowing the connection of additional Thunderbolt peripherals to the daisy-chain Thunderbolt port.
The company also will show its Echo Express PCIe 2.0 expansion chassis with Thunderbolt Ports. The chassis lets users plug in high-performance PCI Express 2.0 adapter cards to any computer with a Thunderbolt port.
