  1. Overview of Expansion Chassis Technology Into the Future with Portable AT March 2, 2007

  2. Superior End User Valueof Mobility Expansion Products • Functional and Versatile • Connect to a notebook or desktop to increase computer functionality and user portability. Enable users to utilize a single processor for multiple computing devices. • Enhanced Performance • Used for high-performance applications that require additional hardware in the form of PCI Express or PCI cards. • Reliable and Cost Effective • Proven products with a solid engineering design and broad market acceptance that lower the total cost of ownership and are supported by excellent customer service. Into the Future with Portable AT March 2, 2007

  3. 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.  Insert Magma PCMCIA card into your laptop.  Connect Cable 

  5. Expansion Technology • Expansion Technology Trends • Computer Systems have fewer expansion slots than systems of a few years ago • Graphics requirements of required applications may exceed the graphics capabilities of a user’s laptop • Cards for specialized applications typically will require an expansion slot • Migration from PCI to PCI Express Into the Future with Portable AT March 2, 2007

  6. Expansion Technology • Example Requirements for Expansion Chassis • Multiple Monitor Support • Laptop users may wants to connect three displays simultaneously • High End Graphics Requirements • User’s applications require a graphics card beyond the capability of the laptop’s installed graphics card • Speciality Cards • Connectivity to external devices Into the Future with Portable AT March 2, 2007

  7. Expansion Technology • ExpressBox1 • Half-Length (for 6.6” or shorter cards) • Graphics • Storage • Test & Measurement • ExpressBox1 Pro • Full-Length (for 12.283” or shorter cards) • Audio • Video FibreChannel Graphics Test & Measurement Video Capture SATA Audio DSP Video I/O Audio I/O Into the Future with Portable AT March 2, 2007
