Features
Cyclone Microsystems' PCI Express Expansion System allows system developers to expand one host PCI Express slot to eight additional PCI Express Slots over an x8 (20 Gb/s) cable. This enables the coupling of cost-effective enterprise host PCs with high bandwidth, peer-to-peer capable I/O subsystems.

The PCI Express Expansion System includes a host bus adapter, an expansion cable, and an expansion backplane mounted in an industrial 19-inch chassis. The PCIe-401 is a PCI Express x8 Host Bus Adapter that bridges from the host bus to an x8 expansion cable. A one or three meter cable connects to the PCIe-411 Expansion Backplane. The PCIe-411 provides an additional eight slots for PCI Express I/O and Embedded Computing boards. The eight slots are configured as two x8 (20Gbs/s) Slots, and six x4 (10 Gbs/s) Slots. The PCI Express Expansion Backplane supports a non-blocking switch fabric which features Quality of Service prioritization, end-to-end data integrity, and hot plug support.

The PCIe-411 Expansion Backplane is mounted in the 600-2040 Expansion Chassis, a 19-inch rack mounted chassis that is specifically designed to support the maximum power and cooling loads of eight full-length PCI Express boards.
