Industry's smallest and lightest 1/2 length Thunderbolt 2 Expansion Chassis
Adds a PCIe expansion slot to any Mac with a Thunderbolt port
Supports 1/2 length, full or 1/2 height PCIe cards
Features two 20 Gbit/s Thunderbolt ports
Variable speed smart blower keeps system cool and quiet
PCIe adapters now play with Thunderbolt enabled Macs.
The mLink Thunderbolt Expansion Chassis from mLogic gives you the freedom to connect professional add-in PCIe cards to any Mac with a Thunderbolt port. Now you can experience the functionality of RAID controllers, 10 Gigabit Ethernet, Fibre Channel and audio/video capture cards on Thunderbolt-enabled iMac, Mac mini, MacBook Air or MacBook Pro systems.
Wouldn’t it be nice to use your MacBook Pro on set to capture uncompressed HD or 2K footage? With mLink you can. mLink enables just about any half-length PCIe card to be attached to any Mac with a Thunderbolt port. How about connecting to a 10 GigE network with your iMac? No problem.
We made it easy to install and swap PCIe adapters in to and out of mLink. In no time at all, you are good to go and doing things that were simply not doable before mLink.
Thunderbolt 2. Ultrafast performance.
Thunderbolt technology enables mLink to transfer data at up to 20 Gbps. When loaded with a PCIe RAID adapter mated to eight SATA II drives, mLink cranks out over 800 MB/second of throughput for the most demanding applications. That's some serious performance.
Big Possibilities. Small form factor.
Two 20 Gbps Thunderbolt 2 ports enable mLink to support a daisy-chain of up to six Thunderbolt devices including additional mLink's an Apple Thunderbolt Display and Thunderbolt storage devices. mDP monitors can be directly attached to the chain as well as DisplayPort, DVI, HDMI, and VGA monitors when used with mDP adapters. mLink supplies 10W of power to support bus-powered Thunderbolt devices. And all this flexibility is packaged in the industry's smallest and lightest chassis.
Innovative Design. Solid engineering.
mLink features a temperature controlled, variable speed smart-blower that keeps the unit optimally cool without excessive noise. And the system powers on and off with the Mac to save power.
