Sonnet’s Echo Express Pro Thunderbolt Expansion Chassis enables you to connect one or two high-performance PCIe 2.0 cards (sold separately) to any computer with a Thunderbolt port. Imagine using full-size professional video capture, audio interface, 8Gb Fibre Channel, 10 Gigabit Ethernet, and RAID controller cards with your iMac®, Mac® mini, MacBook® Air or MacBook Pro computer.
Echo Express Pro includes two x16(1) PCIe 2.0 slots and supports two standard width, full-length cards, or one double-width, full-length card with separate I/O bracket. The chassis includes a built-in 150W power supply, 75W auxiliary power connector and power harness cable, and two variable speed fans to quietly keep cards cool, only speeding up as needed to cool the hottest cards. Two Thunderbolt ports support daisy chaining of up to six devices to a single port on your computer.
Do you have a card in mind but aren't sure which Echo Express you need? We've worked closely with PCIe card manufacturers to provide a list of compatible PCIe cards on our supporting PCIe Card Thunderbolt Compatibility Chart. The chart provides an up-to-date list of tested cards that are recognized over a Thunderbolt connection, compatible with Thunderbolt technology requirements, and that will physically fit the enclosure.
