PX7 - PCIe Mini Card to M.2 Adapter

PCI Express Mini Card to M.2 Adapter

The PX7 is a PCI Express Mini Card designed for converting form factor PCI Express Mini to M.2. In addition, it converts PCIe x1 on the PCI Express Mini side into USB 3.0 featured on the M.2 side.

USB 3.0 Extension for Box PCs

Typically, box PCs from MEN are equipped with PCI Express Mini Card slots which support PCIe x1 and USB 2.0 but not USB 3.0. The PX7 extends the capability of the box PC families by enabling the use of USB 3.0 devices (i.e. LTE-Advanced Modem) in M.2 form factor. The PX7 also supports one SIM card integrated in the box PCs.

Fit for the Future

The PX7 is the ideal solution for LTE Advanced, as it supports transmission rates of up to 500 Mbit/s (Cat 11/Cat 12). Optionally, the PX7 is also available as a USB 2.0 solution for slower LTE modems (Cat 6).

Conduction Cooling Option

MEN also offers a conduction cooled version of the PX7 including an LTE modem for the use within box PCs.
