Adnaco-S1A Fiber Optic Expansion System with 2 PCI and 2 PCIe Slots

The Adnaco-S1A PCI/PCIe Gen 2 Expansion System allows operation of 2 PCI and 2 PCIe cards over fiber optic cable at distances up to few hundred meters (depending on the types of transceivers and cables) from the host computer system. No additional programming and drivers are required. Any type of PCI and PCI Express peripherals can be used including audio, video, graphics, USB, FireWire, SATA, data-acquisition, and network cards.


  • 2 PCIe and 2 PCI cards that can operate simultaneously in remote backplane
  • Selectable 2.5 GT/s or 5 GT/s PCIe communication over fiber optic cable
  • Optical isolation
  • Standard pluggable SFP+ transceivers
  • R1BP1A backplane with 2 PCIe x 16 slots (electrical x1) and 2 PCI slots
  • R1BP1A operating temperature: -40° to +85° C with qualified transceivers
  • R1BP1A can be mounted in any standard ATX or MicroATX case
  • Processor and OS independent and tested with:
    • Windows x86/x64: XP, 7, 8, 8.1, 10
    • Linux x86/x64
    • VxWorks
