The Amfeltec SKU-064-23 PCIe Gen2 Splitter is designed to connect two PCI Express add-in boards to the PCI Express connector of a computer's motherboard. This splitter comes with one x1 PCI Express Host board, two MiniPCI Express Adapter boards, and two 254mm (10") Flat PCI Express cables. The host board connects to the motherboard of the host computer and the adapter boards are connected to the host board with the help of Flat PCI Express cables. The expansion MiniPCI Express add-in boards are connected to the MiniPCI Express Adapter boards at the standard MiniPCI Express connectors provided on the adapter boards.
The connection versatility of this splitter allows an easy connection of expansion MiniPCI Express add-in boards around any peripherals inside the chassis and even away from the PCI Express Host board. The adapter boards come with two mounting holes that allow them to securely fit in a computer chassis.
Plug 'n' Play
One of the best features of this splitter is that it supports Plug-and-Play operation and works right out of the box with any software installation in the computer. It comes with the surface-mounted LEDs that indicate the Link status between PCI Express Host card and MiniPCI Express Adapter boards, along with the MiniPCI Express Adapter boards "PRESENT" and "RESET" status.
The MiniPCI Express add-in boards derive power through the MiniPCI Express connector provided on the adapter board.
