About "Full Duplex and "Configurable Connectors"

In the tables below we specify if a device is Full Duplex or has "Configurable Connectors". Here is an explanation on this:

  • Configurable Connectors: On these devices the connectors can be configured as either input or output. So if they have 4 connectors, then they can have either 4 inputs, or 4 outputs, or 3 inputs and 1 output, or 2 inputs and 2 outputs, or 1 input and 3 outputs, depending on how you use them.
  • Full Duplex: pertains to devices that have no configurable connectors, that have at least 1 input and 1 output, and that both the inputs and outputs can be used at the same time. A device that is not full duplex, you will be able to use either the input OR the output, not both at the same time.

 

 

Thunderbolt or USB devices

The following devices are Thunderbolt devices that can be connected directly to your Mac (provided it's a recent Mac with a Thunderbolt port of course). See under for the list of PCI devices.
