Thunderbolt Expansion Chassis for full length PCIe cards More
MSRP: $599

Link PCIe Cards to Thunderbolt-enabled Macs
The mLink R Thunderbolt Expansion Chassis from mLogic enables PCIe cards such as RAID controllers, SSDs, 10GigE, Fibre Channel and audio/video capture cards to connect to iMac, Mac mini, MacBook Air & MacBook Pro computers via Thunderbolt.  
Big Possibilities - Small Form Factor

mLink R supports a single PCIe 2.0 card (up to x16 physical) and is the industry’s smallest and lightest full-length Thunderbolt Expansion Chassis available.  mLink R features two 10Gbit/second Thunderbolt ports and supports daisy-chaining of up to six Thunderbolt devices including other mLinks, storage devices, mDP monitors and the Apple Thunderbolt Display.  DVI, HDMI and VGA monitors can also be part of the chain when use with mDP adapters.  mLink R supplies 10W of power to support bus-powered Thunderbolt devices.

Thunderbolt I/O - Ultrafast Performance

Thunderbolt technology enables mLink R to transfer data at up to 10Gbps. That's 20x faster than USB 2.0 and 12x faster than FireWire 800. When loaded with a PCIe RAID adapter (Atto R680) mated to eight SATA II drives, mLink cranks out over 700 MB/second of throughput for the most demanding applications.

Swap & Go

The mLink R Thunderbolt Expansion Chassis is designed to make it easy to swap PCIe cards in to and out of the enclosure.

Innovative Design - Solid Engineering

mLink R features a PCIe x16 slot and accommodates up to full-length, 1/2 or full-height PCIe cards.  A temperature controlled, variable speed smart-blower keeps the installed PCIe card optimally cool without excessive noise. And the system powers on and off with the Mac to save power.
