    Sonnet

    Adds a single PCIe expansion slot to any Mac that has a Thunderbolt port.

    Sonnet's Echo Express SE enables you to use a high-performance PCI Express adapter 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; this Sonnet product makes it possible!


    Expanding Outside the Box
    Sonnet harnesses the potential of Thunderbolt technology to enable you to connect a high-performance PCIe expansion card to computers without expansion slots. Developed by Intel® and brought to market with technical collaboration from Apple®, Thunderbolt technology supports high-performance data services and high-resolution displays through a single, compact port. Based on PCI Express (PCIe) and DisplayPort technologies, Thunderbolt provides support for two channels on the same connector with 10 Gb/s of throughput per channel in both directions. Connected via a Thunderbolt cable (not included, sold separately), Echo Express SE carries the computer's PCIe channel to the slot and passes both PCIe and DisplayPort data through a second Thunderbolt port for daisy chaining other devices.


    Strong Link in the Chain
    This Sonnet solution supports daisy chaining of additional Thunderbolt technology-enabled peripherals such as an additional Echo Express SE, the Apple® Thunderbolt Display, video capture devices, and data storage devices. For connected devices requiring bus power, 10 watts is provided through the daisy chain Thunderbolt port to peripherals.
