Expansion Technology

  • Technology Patented technology that provides a method for extending the PCI bus outside the computer’s motherboard to another location. Theoretically, a single PCI slot can support up 255 slots through Magma PCI expansion.

  • SystemAdditional PCI slots are provided in a separate enclosure and connected to the host computer through an interface card and cable.

  • SolutionProvide a scalable solution for increasing PCI functionality without requiring purchase of new computer. PCI configuration can grow as needed.
