2008-01-16 Adnaco Technology extends the PCI Express Bus to distances up to 250 meters

BURNABY, BC, January 16, 2008 – Adnaco Technology has launched its Adnaco-Sirius™ Products which bring USB, PCI, PCIe (or any other standard computer buses/interfaces/peripherals) “out of the PC” extending them to distances up to 250 meters.  By using PCIe as the “PC native communication” the Adnaco-Sirius Products Family offers the newest approach in embedded system design.  Adnaco’s products maximize data transfer rate and, unlike other solutions on the market, the extended buses are fully-compliant with its respective specifications.

The Adnaco-H1 PCIe Extension Host Adapter Card provides an interface between a host computer PCIe bus and a duplex multi-mode fiber optic cable.  The fiber optic cable connects the H1 to the remote Adnaco-R1BP1 Extension Backplane.  The latter has two PCI slots, one PCIe x8 slot and another PCIe x16.  Both PCIe slots (electrical x1) are suitable for remote connection of standard PCIe devices including video cards.  An on-board PCIe-to-PCI bridge provides connection for standard PCI devices in order to support Legacy PCI devices.

The unique feature of the Adnaco-Sirius technology is its transparent access to remote devices without compromising performance.  PCIe tests show the capability of transmitting approximately 1648 Mbps using a x1 Lane (2.5 Gbps) at 250 meters.  Installation of the Adnaco-Sirius Products is simple and requires no additional drivers for the remote chassis (R1BP1) and local (H1) adapter.  The fiber optic link is transparent to software applications and drivers, so industry-standard desktop computers and servers can communicate with remote devices with no additional programming.

Unit prices start at CAD$385.00 for the Adnaco-H1 PCIe Extension Host Adapter Card and CAD$585.00 for the Adnaco-R1BP1 PCI/PCIe Expansion Backplane.  For more information on the Adnaco-Sirius products please visit
