External Thunderbolt 3 to USB Controller - 3 Dedicated USB Host Chips - 1 Each for 5Gbps USB-A Ports, 1 Shared Between 10Gbps USB-C & USB-A Ports - TB3 Daisy Chain - Self Power
High Speed USB Hub | 4x Dedicated Independent Ports | 3x USB-A 1x USB-C
This Thunderbolt 3 USB 3.1 multi-channel hub controller delivers maximum USB performance, adding four high-speed independent USB ports to your Thunderbolt 3 laptop. It provides three dedicated USB controllers and up to 20Gbps of aggregated bandwidth for USB devices, ideal for connecting bandwidth-demanding devices such as 3D scanners.
The Thunderbolt 3 hub lets you access multiple USB devices at greater bandwidth and improved performance, and extend the life of your USB devices.
Maximize USB Performance The high-speed USB hub provides two 10Gbps ports for connecting high-performance devices such as storage arrays, 3D scanners, audio-video devices, and external SSDs, with dedicated bandwidth for faster read/write access. The second Thunderbolt 3 port can be used to connect an additional USB-C device with up to 10G bandwidth.
Dedicated Independent Port Bandwidth When only one USB port is in use, the full 10Gbps bandwidth is available to the device. Two additional USB-A ports provide 5Gbps of bandwidth to each device simultaneously, ideal for portable hard drives or flash drives. For added convenience, the front USB-A port supports both data and charging of your mobile device.
Extend Your Workstation The Thunderbolt 3 hub features a second Thunderbolt 3 port to connect an additional display to your laptop (a USB-C video adapter may be required). The port can also be used to connect additional Thunderbolt devices, daisy-chaining up to six devices.

Thunderbolt 3 PCIe Expansion Chassis with DisplayPort - PCIe x16
Add an external PCIe (PCI Express 3.0) x16 slot and a DisplayPort connection to your Thunderbolt 3 equipped MacBook or laptop
This Thunderbolt™3 PCIe expansion chassis lets you add a PCI Express card to your laptop or desktop computer, through an external Thunderbolt 3 connection. The chassis also features a DisplayPort video output, so you can connect an additional monitor to your laptop, and supports Thunderbolt 3 daisy chaining, so you can expand your workstation even further.
Expand the capabilities of your Thunderbolt 3 computer The Thunderbolt 3 PCIe chassis makes it easy to expand your system with the capabilities you need to work at peak productivity. You can add many types of PCI Express cards, such as a PCIe USB 3.1/3.0/2.0 and USB-C, SSD, network, eSATA, FireWire or video capture cards. And, with the speed and bandwidth support of Thunderbolt 3 and PCIe 3.0, you can enjoy many of the same port additions you would from the PCI Express expansion slots of a desktop system.
Extend your workstation The external PCIe enclosure features a dedicated DisplayPort output that lets you add an additional display to your laptop or desktop computer. The enclosure features a second Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) port, that you can use to connect a secondary display (a USB-C video adapter may be required). With multiple extended displays, you can work more efficiently by multitasking faster, and avoid the hassle of continually repositioning several open windows or programs.
You can also use the second Thunderbolt 3 port to connect additional Thunderbolt, USB and DisplayPort devices to your system. You can daisy chain up to six Thunderbolt 3 devices and expand your workstation to suit your specific requirements.
Increase productivity with faster speeds Thunderbolt 3 is the fastest connection available, which means you don’t have to deal with the performance bottlenecks of a slower connection, and can accomplish more in the same amount of time.
At up to 40Gbps this Thunderbolt 3 expansion chassis gives you the throughput to add displays to your laptop, access files quickly, and work without disruptions. It’s easy to access and edit large uncompressed files such as videos and images on the fly, making it ideal for dynamic on-site production.
