Add More Ports for High-Speed Peripherals
Can your computer harness all the performance offered by today’s fast multimedia peripherals? Does it have enough ports to connect your collection of keyboards, mice, printers, scanners, digital cameras, and your new iPhone®, too? Install Sonnet’s Tango™ 800 PCIe into your computer to instantly add (or add more of) the high-speed FireWire 800 (1394b) and USB 2.0 connections you need!
Tango 800 PCIe features the fastest PCI Express to FireWire 800 controller available, the Texas Instruments XIO2213A, enabling this card’s three external FireWire 800 ports to extract every ounce of performance from fast external drives and DV camcorders to deliver maximum data transfer speeds and satisfy the demands of video and pro audio application work, where high-speed and high-bandwidth data throughput are essential. For connecting almost any other peripheral, this Sonnet adapter’s two USB 2.0 ports are a handy addition to any computer. All of this combo adapter card’s ports are powered and capable of supporting bus-powered peripherals (devices that can work without a separate power supply, including some scanners and small external drives), so some devices can be plugged in and operate without an extra connection to a power supply.
Tango 800 PCIe installs easily into one of your computer’s PCI Express (PCIe) slots, features hot-pluggable and hot-swappable device connection support with automatic device configuration, and works with all industry-standard FireWire 800, FireWire 400(1), USB 2.0, and USB 1.1 peripherals. Get a Tango 800 PCIe to make all the right connections to your digital device collection.
