Flexible MiniPCI Express to two x1 PCI Express Splitter

  • Splits MiniPCI Express into two x1 PCI Express interfaces
  • Extends MiniPCI Express bus by 10''
  • 5 Gbit/sec. upstream bandwidth (Gen2)
  • Flexible connection
  • Easy placement of add-in boards inside an embedded chassis

 

 

The Flexible MiniPCI Express to two x1 PCI Express Splitter (Splitter) was designed to expand the modern motherboard (ATX, mini ATX, etc.) with a limited number of PCI Express connectors. It allows you to connect up to two x1 PCI Express add-in boards to the motherboard’s standard MiniPCI Express connector.

The Splitter includes an x1 PCI Express adapter board with a PCI Express flat cable (up to 2 boards), and a MiniPCI Express host board.

Each x1 PCI Express adapter board has a standard PCI Express x1 connector for plugging in the x1 PCI Express add-in board (downstream). The MiniPCI Express host board connects to the motherboard MiniPCI Express connector (upstream). The PCI Express flat cable (10 inches) is used for connecting the host board and adapter board, and it provides a flexible connection between the x1 PCI Express add-in boards and the motherboard.

The power (12V and 3.3V) for the x1 PCI Express add-in board is supplied via a female PCI Express connector placed on the PCI Express adapter board. Power for the x1 PCI Express adapter board is supplied via 4 pin “floppy disk” power connector. Depending on the x1 PCI Express adapter board type, it can utilize different power sources:
– a standard ATX power supply (12V and 5V)
– an external power supply (12V only)

The x1 PCI Express Adapter board has mounting holes for its mechanical fixation inside the computer chassis (embedded computer), and support tabs for mechanical stabilization of the add-in PCI Express board (US Patent 7,255,570).

  • Easy Plug and Play installation
  • Compliant with MiniPCI Express specification 2.0 and PCI express specification 2.1
  • 5 Gbit/sec. upstream bandwidth (Gen2)
  • Allows MiniPCI Express slot to be spit into 2 x1 PCI Express slots
  • LEDs for displaying downstream and upstream PCI Express link ports activities
  • LEDs for displaying PCI Express add-in boards “PRESENT” status
  • Support tabs for mechanical stabilization of add-in PCI Express boards (US Patent 7,255,570)
  • RoHS compliant
