Cyclone Microsystems' PCI Express Expansion System allows system developers to expand one host PCI Express slot to seven additional PCI Express Slots via a x8 (20Gb/s) cable. This enables the couplng 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 is a PCI Express x8 Host Bus Adapter that bridges from the host bus to an x8 expansion cable of either one or three meters. The cable connects to the PCIe-414 Expansion Backplane. The PCIe-414 provides an additional seven slots for PCI Express I/O and Embedded Computing boards. The seven slots are configured as three x8 (20Gbs/s) slots, and four x4 (10 Gbs/s) Slots. The PCI Express Expansion Backplane supports a forty eight lane non-blocking switch fabric which features Quality of Service prioritization, and end-to-end data integrity.

The PCIe-414 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 seven full-length PCI Express boards.
