Cyclone Microsystems' PCI Express Expansion System allows system developers to expand one host PCI Express Gen 1 or Gen 2 slot to seven additional PCI Express Slots via a x8 (20Gb/s) Gen 1 PCI Express Expansion 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-425 is a PCI Express x8 Host Bus Adapter that use low latency bus repeaters to bridge 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 Gen 1 (20Gbs/s) slots, and four x4 Gen 1 (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 600-2705 was specifically developed to satisfy low latency system requirements such as advanced audio processing and digital audio workstations.

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.

NOTE: The former PCIe-409 HBA in this configuration has been superceded by the Gen 2 Host compatible PCIe-425.
