The AKiTiO Node Pro provides an additional PCIe slot for Thunderbolt 3 computers (e.g. laptop computers) where installing an internal expansion card is not an option and for systems where there is not enough space for more PCIe cards. The Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) connection not only makes adding an external PCIe card easy but it also allows you to take the device with you to use on location and move it from one system to another. Installing and replacing the PCIe card is a simple matter of removing a few thumb screws and does not require any tools.

Thunderbolt™ 3 for lightning fast transfer speeds up to 40 Gbps
Dedicated DisplayPort for additional monitor to expand the workspace
2nd Thunderbolt port supports Thunderbolt 3, USB 3.1, and DisplayPort devices
