Magma PE6R4-I PCI Express to PCI-X Expansion System at a Glance:
PCI meets PCI Express
The Magma PE6R4 is designed to match the throughput required by the majority of PCI cards on the market today. The expansion chassis contains six PCI-X slots which are connected to the host computer through an 8-lane (x8) PCI Express host interface card and high performance cable.
Fast and flexible
PE6R4 provides an easy migration path to new PCI Express based computers while maintaining a consistent PCI configuration. In addition, Magma PE6R4 provides increased I/O capacity and scalability because multiple expansion systems can be combined to provide an almost unlimited number of PCI slots to a single computer. As defined by the PCI Local Bus Specification, the theoretical maximum per single computer is 255 PCI buses. This type of scalability is especially useful in industries such as telecom, data acquisition, video monitoring, server storage, and manufacturing test fixtures.
The Magma PE6R4 system consists of a PCI Express host card, a high-speed iPass cable and a PCI expansion chassis. The Magma PCI Express host card relays signals from the PCI Express slot inside the computer motherboard to a PCI bridge chip inside the expansion chassis. All six high-performance PCI slots inside the expansion chassis (on a single bus segment) appear transparent to the host computer.
