The McFiver card provide 7.5W of power through each of its USB ports, supporting USB bus-powered SSDs and hubs without the need to connect an additional AC power adapter to the device.
Ordinary USB cards need a separate power connection. Sonnet’s McFiver card draws all the power necessary to operate connected drives from the slot it’s installed in. This enables you to install the Sonnet card in any compatible computer or Thunderbolt expansion system regardless of it having extra power connectors available.
The McFiver card regulates power to each port independently, providing each one protection from power glitches on the adjacent port. Ordinary USB cards can provide poor power regulation, allowing a connected drive to be forced off (auto-disconnected) when an additional drive is connected or disconnected.
Unlike ordinary USB cards, the McFiver card features a resettable fuse on each port that protects both the card and computer should a cable or peripheral fail. Resetting a tripped fuse is simple — just shut down and then restart your computer.
Provides NVMe storage, 10Gb Ethernet, and 10Gbps USB-C connections on one PCIe 3.0 card.
Add up to 16TB of storage inside (SSDs sold separately); four lanes of PCIe 3.0 bandwidth available to each installed SSD achieve data transfer speeds up to 6600 MB/s (SSDs configured as RAID 0 set).
An efficient integrated heat sink enables installed SSDs to maintain high performance during very large file transfer operations.
Adds an RJ45 10GbE port to your computer with PCIe slots or Thunderbolt expansion system.
5 Gb/s and 2.5 Gb/s speeds supported over existing Cat 5e (or better) cabling at distances up to 100 meters.
Audio Video Bridging (IEEE802.1Qav, AVB) over Ethernet supported with Mac computers.
Adds two USB-C 10Gbps ports to your computer or Thunderbolt to PCIe card expansion system.
USB 3.2 controller enables each port to support data transfers at up to 1000 MB/s, even while transferring files from two drives concurrently.
Supports “Multiple INs” feature to enable multiple data transactions to take place simultaneously and eliminate bandwidth congestion.
7.5W power is available per USB-C port, supporting bus-powered SSD, SSD RAID, and hub devices.
Independent port power regulation isolates each one to prevent cross-coupled power glitches that may cause accidental disconnects; resettable device overcurrent fuses protect the card and computer and may be reset by a simple shutdown.
