Two PCIe Revision 2 Slots
Echo Express SEII PCIe Expansion box is made to connect eSATA, RAID, capture cards, Networking or other PCIe cards to your Thunderbolt port on your computer. Has 2 Thunderbolt ports so you can chain other devices.
The perfect adapter to take your old MacPro PCIe cards with you to new Thunderbolt Macs.
Note: PCIe cards must be Rev 2 PCIe AND have Thunderbolt aware drivers to be attached through Thunderbolt. This is a fairly limited list but includes most Areca RAID cards. Also we recommend the Newer 6G 4 port eSATA card to run your port multiplier Burlys. Many high end Capture cards, Networking and Fiber cards are also compatible. Sonnet has a somewhat less than complete compatibility list here.
Echo SEII is compatible with
- any computer with a Thunderbolt port
- any PCIe card up to 7.75" long
that has Thunderbolt aware drivers
We recommend this adapter used with the Lycom 6G 4 Port eSATA card. That card has 4 eSATA ports and supports up to 4 port multipliers with up to 20 drives. Performance is in the neighborhood of 400 MB/sec per port. A fantastic method to attach your Burly port multiplier enclosure to your Thunderbolt Mac. This expansion box works with Areca Thunderbolt capable RAID cards.
