Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 13, 2012
Trenton Systems’ new PCI Express® expansion products provide a simplified, high-speed and secure method of adding a large number of I/O cards to existing server installations. Trenton offers a variety of rackmount PCIe expansion chassis that utilize industry standard PICMG® 1.3 backplanes to extend a host server’s PCI Express, PCI-X and PCI I/O option card capability. The Trenton PED8044 target card in a PCIe expansion chassis communicates to any host server via a one or three-meter, x16 PCI Express cable link and a Trenton PEU8039 host card installed in a server’s x16 PCIe card slot.
“Our new PCIe expansion product line solves the problem of supporting a large number of I/O cards in secure, high-speed / high-bandwidth data communications environments”, said Michael Bowling, President of Trenton Systems. “These PCIe expansion solutions from Trenton use industry standard hardware to ensure platform inter-operatability at a cost effective price point.”
“Trenton’s PED8044 target card employs the latest x16 PCI Express switch technology to ensure low data packet delivery latencies and end-to-end data protection”, said Brad Trent, Director of Engineering at Trenton Systems. “Likewise the x16 PCIe Gen2 link re-drivers employed on the PEU8039 host card ensures maximum x16 PCIe signal integrity over the one or three meter cable length between the host server and the PCIe expansion chassis.”
Here is an abbreviated summary of the Trenton PCI Express Expansion Products:
Expansion Chassis: Choice of 3U, 4U and 5U chassis with a choice of 14 and 20-slot backplanes that support a number of different combinations of PCIe, PCI-X and PCI option cards.
Expansion Cable: PCIe x16 cable link available in one or three-meter lengths
PCIe Expansion Link: PCIe x16 link fully compliant with the PCI Express Base Specification 2.0 and 1.1
Target & Host Card: Target Card plugs into the SHB slot on any industry standard PICMG 1.3 backplane while the Host Card plugs into any standard x16 card slot on a host server’s motherboard
