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.
