- Where to Buy
For PCIe cards that run extra HOT, this small form-factor expansion chassis provides 2 full-length PCIe slots in a 1U rackmount chassis with a 200W power supply and dedicated cooling.
ExpressBox 2 is a simple, cost effective solution for expanding the available PCI Express slots of workstations and servers. This provides an efficient way to maximize your workstation or server’s total I/O capability and limit the number of CPUs required in your system.
Cost-effective Solution for Expanding I/O capacity
Magma’s ExpressBox 2 provides the ability to expand the I/O capabilities of workstation and servers by allowing for the addition of PCI Express slots. These much needed slots can then take full-length PCI Express I/O cards. This is accomplished with a host card in one slot of the host backplane connected to the chassis via a cable.
ExpressBox 2 consists of a PCI Express Host Card, a cable and a chassis. It is automatically configured by the System BIOS making all of the slots appear transparent to the host computer.
Optimal method to enhancing your PCI Express I/O capabilities
ExpressBox 2 is an expansion chassis in 1U in height that provides 2 full-length PCI Express slots to the host. These chassis can be daisy-chained to provide as many PCI Express slots as the Root Complex of the host will allow.
