          Ordering Information

          The IBM BladeCenter PCI Express Gen 2 Expansion Blade II provides the capability to attach selected PCI Express cards on selected server blades. This capability is ideal for many applications that require special telecommunications network interfaces or hardware acceleration using a PCI Express card. They provide one full height, full length PCI Express slot and one full height, half length PCI Express slot with a 75W power supply for each slot integrating PCI Express card support capability into the BladeCenter architecture.

          The only difference between Expansion Blade and Expansion Blade II are cut-outs on the sides of Expansion Blade II.

          Compatibility Notes Product features:
          Support for PCIe 2.0 adapters in an expansion blade:
          The expansion blade lets you install one or two standard form factor PCIe 2.0 adapter cards in a BladeCenter environment, enabling the use of specialized adapters or adapters that wouldn't otherwise be available to BladeCenter customers. Each of the two adapters can consume up to 75W.

          Ability to stack up to four expansion blades on a single base blade:
          You can attach up to two, three or four expansion blades (depending on the attached server), thereby maintaining the BladeCenter density advantage while still giving you the option to install PCIe cards as needed without the need for each server blades and the added complexity and cost that brings. The first expansion blade connects to the server blade using the CFFh expansion slot of the server blade. The second expansion blade attaches to the CFFh connector on the first expansion blade, and so on.

          CFFh slot still available:
          The CFFh expansion connector is accessible on the top-most expansion blade, even with four expansion blades attached. This lets you maintain the integrated networking capabilities of the blade server when installed in a BladeCenter H or BladeCenter HT chassis.
