Cyclone Microsystems' PCI Express Expansion System allows system developers to expand one host x16 PCI Express slot to four additional PCI Express Slots via a x16 (40Gb/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-426 is a PCI Express Gen2 x16 Host Bus Adapter that use low latency bus repeaters to bridge from the host bus to an x16 expansion cable of either one or three meters. The cable connects to the PCIe-417 Expansion Backplane. The PCIe-417 provides an additional four slots for PCI Express I/O and Embedded Computing boards. The four slots are configured as x16 slot, a x8 slot and two x4 slots. The larger two slots are physically double width accomodating graphics processors. 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 600-2706 was specifically developed to satisfy intense graphic processing applications.

The PCIe-417 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.
