A host adapter – plugged into a free M2.M slot in the host PC/system – is so connected to the backplane via the client adapter.
The “Host adapter M2.M” supports 4 PCIe Gen3 lines, which are connected to the client adapter via 2 Mini Display port cables (2 lines each).
With Digital Devices cables, the optimal setting in the host and client adapters is done automatically.
Cable lengths from 0.5 – 7.0 m are possible.
There is a Low Profile and a Full Profile slot bracket available.
