35 Years of Hi-Tech Industry Experience

Sonnet Technologies, Inc. is a leading provider of Thunderbolt™ technology products, including PCIe® card expansion systems; external graphics (eGPU) solutions for pro users and gamers; pro media readers; docks and adapters; and network, storage, and other interface cards for pro users in the audio, video, and broadcast industries.

Sonnet’s Thunderbolt expansion products enable the use of pro audio I/O and DSP cards, pro video capture and transcoding cards, GPU cards, network and storage interface cards, and other high-performance PCIe cards with Thunderbolt technology-enabled computers.

For 35 years Sonnet has pioneered and brought to market numerous innovative and award-winning products that enhance the performance and connectivity of Mac®, Windows®, and Linux® computers. Sonnet is headquartered in Irvine, California, the most dynamic concentration of technology and engineering south of Silicon Valley. The company's extensive and diverse portfolio of products includes:


Thunderbolt Products

Working closely with Apple® and Intel® since 2011 in the development and certification of Thunderbolt, Thunderbolt 2, Thunderbolt 3 and Thunderbolt 4 products, Sonnet has developed many pioneering solutions:

  • Single- and Multi-slot PCIe Card Expansion Systems
    Available for the desktop or for installation in equipment racks, these systems enable users with computers lacking expansion card slots (portable, mini, and all-in-one computers) to connect specialty PCIe cards that add needed video and audio inputs, transcode data, and connect to high-speed shared storage and networks.
  • PCIe Card Expansion System/Mac mini Rackmount Enclosures
    These integrated systems enable users to replace a full-sized desktop or workstation computer with a Mac mini® and multi-slot PCIe card expansion system, securely mounted in a standard 19-inch equipment rackmount enclosure.
  • Add-your-own-card and All-in-one eGPU Systems
    Sonnet’s eGPU systems boost a computer’s graphics performance by connecting a powerful desktop or workstation GPU card to it via a Thunderbolt 3 connection, bypassing the computer’s onboard GPU to deliver graphics performance not otherwise possible. Sonnet’s add-your-own-card eGPU systems allow users to purchase the AMD® or Nvidia® GPU card that best suits their needs, while Sonnet’s all-in-one eGPU systems integrate an AMD GPU in a compact, portable package. All of Sonnet’s eGPU systems are designed for professionals who need to run graphics-intensive applications on their compatible notebook, all-in-one, or small-form-factor computers, with the products’ designs focused on cool, quiet, and reliable operation without unnecessary bells and whistles.
  • Thunderbolt Docks
    Sonnet’s Thunderbolt docking stations provide notebook and laptop computer users a central place to connect their computer peripherals (instead of directly to their computers that often have fewer ports than needed) and enable users to connect to all of their devices at once through a single Thunderbolt cable. Through the same cable, Sonnet’s docks can also charge compatible portable computers with up to 90 watts of power. Depending on the computer to which it’s connected, a Sonnet dock also supports connecting one or up to two monitors.
  • Single and Dual-slot Pro Media Card Readers
    Supporting CFast™ 2.0, CFexpress™ Type B, P2, RED MINI-MAG®, SxS™, and XQD™ media, Sonnet’s pro card readers accelerate the ingest of footage and files in Mac and Windows based digital workflows. Featuring Thunderbolt 3 interfaces and rugged aluminum enclosures, Sonnet’s card readers ingest footage at up to the cards’ rated speeds, and are equally at home on location, in the studio, and in the edit suite.
  • Ethernet Networking Adapters
    Bus-powered single-port and self-powered dual-port adapters add blazing-fast 10Gb Ethernet network connectivity to users’ computers, offering copper (RJ45) or fiber optical connections to infrastructure.
     
  • Display Adapters
    Dual DisplayPort and Dual HDMI display adapters enable the connection of up to two 4K displays to a single Thunderbolt 3 computer port.


Performance-extending Computer Cards

Sonnet offers a broad array of PCIe computer cards, ranging from M.2, SATA and U.2 SSD storage cards to single and dual-port 10Gb Ethernet adapter cards, and from dual- and quad-port USB adapters to storage interface adapters. Sonnet’s computer cards extend the capabilities and performance of desktop and server computers, and other computers via Thunderbolt-to-PCIe card expansion systems with modern and legacy connectivity.


OEM Design and Manufacturing Partner

For years, Sonnet has provided its engineering and design expertise to numerous companies in related fields. From interface boards to complete products, Sonnet leverages its strengths to add value and quality to other companies’ products.


Awards

Sonnet has been recognized over the years for our outstanding product solutions for Mac, Windows, and Linux computer upgrades and for the profession audio, video, and broadcasting industries.
