Connect two PCIe 2.0 slots to the Mac mini.
Sonnet’s xMac mini Server transforms a Mac mini (sold separately) with Thunderbolt technology from a simple server to something much more. It securely mounts a Mac mini inside a specially designed 1U enclosure and connects two PCIe 2.0 slots (with a 100W power supply for installed cards) to enable you to harness the power of full-size pro video capture, audio interface, 8Gb Fibre Channel, 10 Gigabit Ethernet, RAID controller cards, and more! This model supports one full-height, full-length card plus one low-profile, half-length card, and includes a daughter card mounting bracket plus mounting holes for BNC connectors. Temperature-controlled fans deliver strategic airflow to cool the enclosure. Two Thunderbolt ports, one to connect the PCIe slots to the computer, the second for daisy chaining other Thunderbolt devices, are included. A USB port and a power button on the front panel allow operation of the system without requiring access to the back of the computer. xMac mini Server expands a Mac mini’s potential in a big way.
xMac mini Server
The updated xMac mini Server supports one full-height, full-length card plus one low-profile, half-length card. What if you need to install a PCIe card that includes a daughter card, like the ones included with RME's HDSPe MADI FX card, Blackmagic Design's DeckLink 4K Extreme, and the Lynx AES16e-50? The updated xMac mini Server includes an easy to install mounting bracket that allows you to securely mount the daughter card inside the chassis with the main card installed in the full length card slot, leaving the second PCIe slot open for another PCIe card. On its rear panel, this model also includes mounting holes for two BNC connectors, typically used for HD/SDI output from cards like the RED Rocket.
