The M9048A PCIe® desktop PC adapter provides a highperformance (Gen 2 x8) link between a host PC and PXIe or
AXIe chassis.
The M9048A utilizes a PCIe switch and clock isolation to
provide a high-quality clock source driven down the PCIe
cable to the PXIe or AXIe chassis. As a result, the adapter
always provides the same, high-performance Gen 2 link,
independent of the PC. It can also operate in most Gen 3
PC slots because the PC can train to Gen 2.
The adapter is compatible with desktop or rackmount
computers that have either x8 or x16 PCIe expansion slots
(mechanical). It connects directly to the M9502A/5A AXIe
or M9018A PXIe chassis with a Y1202A PCIe cable.
