The AkiTio Node Lite Thunderbolt 3 PCIe Expansion Chassis provides one PCIe 3.0 x16 slot for Thunderbolt 3 systems. The slot is compatible with half-length, full-height, and double-width PCIe cards, supporting up to 25W of power. The Node Lite comes with a DisplayPort 1.2 output for expanding a system's onscreen workspace as well as a second Thunderbolt 3 port that lets the system daisy chain with up to five Thunderbolt devices. Each of the two Thunderbolt 3 ports transmits data at a rate of up to 40 Gb/s and offers a USB Type-C design, so you can connect the provided Thunderbolt 3 cable on the first try.


Supports PCIe Gen 3.0 x4 Cards

The PCIe x16 slot accepts half-length, full-height, and double-width cards and provides a maximum of 25W. Thunderbolt 3 offers four PCIe Gen 3 lanes and transfers data at up to 40 Gb/s to provide ample bandwidth for both the internal PCIe card as well as any additional Thunderbolt devices in the daisy chain.


Thunderbolt 3

Thunderbolt 3 features a USB Type-C interface and brings speeds of up to 40 Gb/s, creating one compact port that does it all - delivering a fast, versatile connection to any dock, display, or data device. This interface connects to Thunderbolt devices, displays, and USB devices. A single cable now provides ample data and video bandwidth, while also supplying power to bus-powered devices. 


The Node Lite has two Thunderbolt 3 ports. The second port operates the same as a Thunderbolt 3 computer port by supporting Thunderbolt 3 (up to 5 daisy-chained), USB 3.1 (10 Gb/s), and DisplayPort devices.



The DisplayPort connector makes it easy to connect an additional monitor to extend your workspace. This video output frees up the second Thunderbolt 3 port for daisy-chaining with other Thunderbolt 3 devices.
