3M Connectors PCI Express Extender Assemblies

3M PCI Express Extender Assemblies have been incorporated into the 3M™ High-Routability Twin Axial Cable product line as one-to-one direct extenders for power and high-speed signals that are part of the PCI Express specification. PCI Express Extender Assemblies allow prototyping with custom assemblies that can be folded without loss of integrity. Designed specifically for PCI Express extender card applications, PCI Express Extender Assemblies plug into a PCIe card slot with another slot at the opposite end.

3M offers PCI Express Extender Assemblies in 5Gbps and 8Gbps speeds, 2 lengths, and 3 different channel sizes. 3M's PCI Express Extender Assemblies are ideally suited for high-performance computing (HPC), servers, storage, medical fields (imaging such as MRI, CT, CAT, etc.), and data-intensive applications that require high bandwidth of PCIe 2.0 (5Gbps) and PCIe 3.0 (8Gbps).
