The Magma PCI Express-to-PCI Expansion System provides a simple, cost-effective solution for expanding the capability of your PCI Express based computer. As computer manufacturers migrate to PCI Express, the number of available PCI slots has been reduced or completely eliminated. However,many companies have invested a substantial amount of capital on solutions built around conventional PCI and PCI-X hardware. The Magma PCIe to PCI-X expansion system provides a "migration path" to PCI Express while protecting your PCI hardware investment.

The Magma PCI Express-to-PCI Expansion System is designed to match the through-put 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 a 8 lane (x8) PCI Express host interface card and a high-performance cable.

The Magma PCI Expansion solution provides a cost-effective migration path to new PCI Express-based computers while maintaining a consistent PCI configuration. In addition, Magma products significantly increase Input/Output (I/O) capacity and scalability. Multiple expansion systems can be combined to provide an almost unlimited number of PCI slots* to a single computer. This type of scalability is especially useful in industries such as Telecom, Data Acquisition, Video Monitoring, Server Storage and Manufacturing Test Fixtures.
*As defined by the PCI Local Bus Specification, the theoretical maximum per computer is 255 PCI buses.

The Magma 6 Slot PCI Express-to- PCI Expansion System consists of a x8 PCI Express host card, a high-speed iPass cable and a PCI(x) expansion chassis. The host card relays signals from the PCI Express slot inside the computer motherboard to a PCI(x) backplane inside the expansion chassis. The system is automatically configured by the system BIOS and all six high-performance PCI(x) slots within the expansion chassis appear transparent to the host computer.

NOTE: Please note that PCI and PCI-X are backwards compatible.
