Cyclone Microsystems' PCI Express Expansion System allows system developers to expand one host PCI Express slot to fourteen additional PCI Express Slots and two PCI-X slots via a x8 (20 Gb/s) PCI Express Expansion 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 cable adapter, an expansion cable and an expansion backplane mounted in an industrial 19-inch chassis. The PCIe-408 PCI Express x8 Host Bus to PCI Expansion Cable Adapter bridges from the host bus to an x8 PCI Express expansion cable of one or three meters. The cable connects to the PCie-412/403 Expansion Backplane. The PCIe-412/403 provides an additional sixteen slots for I/O and Embedded Computing boards. The six slots are configured as x8 (20Gbs/s) Slots, and eight as x4 (10 Gbs/s) Slots and two as PCI-X slots. The PCI Express Expansion Backplane supports a non-blocking switch fabric which features Quality of Service prioritization and end-to-end data integrity.

The PCIe-412 Expansion Backplane is mounted in the 600-2060 Expansion Chassis, a 19-inch rack mounted chassis that is specifically designed to support the maximum power loads of boards populated in all sixteen slots.
