"Thunderbolt technology in combination with mLogic's mLink brings unique expandability and high-performance to users with mobile and all-in-one computers," says Jason Ziller, Director Thunderbolt Marketing, Intel. "We're excited to see mLink provide these capabilities to media creators and enthusiasts."
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.
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 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.
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.
