Overview

Overview

The Sonnet Echo ExpressCard Pro Thunderbolt Adapter expands Thunderbolt connectivity to any computer with a Thunderbolt port, enabling you to use a wide variety of ExpressCard/34 cards to add a range of interfaces and capabilities to your system.

This adapter supports hot-swapping, and you can select and change the ExpressCard to use as needed. It supports most Sonnet ExpressCard/34 cards, such as Sonnet’s FireWire interfaces and SDXC™ card readers, select Gigabit Ethernet adapters, USB 3.0 interfaces, eSATA controllers, and interface cards for Qio™ E3 and Qio CF4 pro media readers.

Echo ExpressCard Pro also supports specialty adapters like RME's HDSPe ExpressCard, plus interface cards for the AJA io Express and the Matrox MX02 family. Support for Sony SxS memory cards simply requires the installation of Sony's latest SxS driver. 

Simply connect it directly to your computer or at the end of a Thunderbolt device chain with a Thunderbolt cable (not included). No software installation or power supply required.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Thunderbolt cable sold separately.
