PCI Express Expander / Backplanes

With our Backplanes you can extend the number of PCIe slots on a mainboard. Plug a host adapter into one PCIe slot. Solutions are available for PCIe X8, X4, M2e and M2M. Connect the host adapter via our intelligent cables to the client adapter and plug it into the backplane. Host and client adapter automatically adjust to the cable length ( 0.5 to 6,5M). The backplane has a transparent PCIe switch which handles the communication between the PCIe devices and the host transparently. There is no need for drivers and it works on all systems from Windows to MAC OS to Linux. We offer various cases for the backplanes.
