Link PCIe Cards to Thunderbolt-enabled Macs Including the New Mac Pro!

mLink R is designed to link PCIe cards (up to 3/4 length) to iMac, Mac mini, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro and the new Mac Pro via Thunderbolt.

Big Possibilities - Small Form Factor

mLink R supports a single PCIe card and is the industry's smallest and lightest Thunderbolt Expansion Chassis to support 3/4 length boards. mLink R features two 20Gbit/second Thunderbolt 2 ports and enables daisy-chaining of up to six additional Thunderbolt devices including other mLinks, storage devices, mDP monitors and Apple Thunderbolt Displays. DVI, HDMI and VGA monitors can also be part of the chain when used with mDP adapters. mLink R also provides 10W of power to support bus-powered Thunderbolt peripherals.

Thunderbolt 2 - Ultrafast Performance

Thunderbolt 2 technology enables mLink R to transfer data at up to 20Gbps. When loaded with a RAID controller (Atto R680) and attached to eight SATA III drives, mLink R cranks out over 800 MB/second of throughput for the most demanding content creation applications.

Innovative Design - Solid Engineering

mLink R features a PCIe x16 slot (x4 electrical) and accommodates PCIe cards such as professional audio/video capture boards and RAID adapters. A temperature controlled, variable speed fan keeps the installed card optimally cool without excessive noise. And mLink R powers on and off with the Mac to save power.

The Perfect Solution for the RED ROCKET

mLink R is by far the most compact Thunderbolt enclosure for the RED ROCKET. And mLink R features two BNC cutouts on the back panel to mount the ROCKET BNC connectors. Mobile REDCINE X workflows have never been easier!
