Sonnet's Express SE is small, light, and perfect for use in situations where the installed PCIe card doesn't require much space or a lot of power. Like its larger sibling, the Echo Express, the SE has a single slot, but uses a smaller enclosure that accommodates a half-length (up to 6.5" long), full-height, single-width, x8(1) PCIe 2.0 card.
The Echo Express SE enables you to use a high-performance PCIe card (sold separately) with any computer with a Thunderbolt port. Imagine using a compatible professional video capture, audio interface, SAS & SATA HBA, 8Gb Fibre Channel, 10 Gigabit Ethernet, or RAID controller card with your iMac®, Mac® mini, MacBook® Air or MacBook Pro 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.
