      Sonnet Echo ExpressCard Pro - Thunderbolt Adapter for ExpressCard/34 Cards (109593590)

Thunderbolt adapter for ExpressCard/34 cards.

Thunderbolt technology is amazingâ??the speed (up to 10Gb/s) and versatility (supporting high-resolution displays plus high-performance data devices through a single, compact port) make it clear that this is the next generation I/O technology, available today. But what about connecting existing FireWire® and eSATA peripherals, as well as high speed memory cards? Sonnet's Echo ExpressCard/34 Thunderbolt Adapter expands Thunderbolt connectivity to support more than just storage systems and monitors. This Sonnet adapter adds an ExpressCard/34 slot to any computer to which it's connected, enabling you to use a wide variety of ExpressCard/34 cards to add a range of interfaces and capabilities to your system.

Imagine adding more FireWire ports or an eSATA interface through a single Thunderbolt adapter. Echo ExpressCard Pro allows you to choose your connections and add more to your setup. Because this adapter supports hot-swapping, you can select and change the ExpressCard to use as neededâ??it supports most Sonnet ExpressCard/34 cards (with a PCI Express interface), such as SWonnet's own FireWire interfaces, CompactFlash® and SDXCâ?¢ card readers, select eSATA controllers, and interface cards for Sonnet's Qioâ?¢ CF4 and Qio E3 pro media readers. Echo ExpressCard Pro also supports specialty adapters like RME's HDSPe ExpressCard, plus interface cards for the AJA® io Express and the Matrox® MX02 family. Support for Sony® SxS memory cards simply requires the installation of Sony's latest SxS driver*.

Set up for this Thunderbolt adapter is simpleâ??just connect it directly to your computer or at the end of a Thunderbolt device chain with a Thunderbolt cable (not included, sold at the Apple Store)â??that's it. There's no software to install and no power supply to plug in. Plug the ExpressCard/34 card or SxS memory card into the adapter as you would into a notebook computer's ExpressCard slot, install software for the adapter if necessary, and you are ready to work.
