Picture of AGPEX4-S

AGPEX4-S is an AGP regular extender. It features pluggable fuses, power indicating LEDs, header pins for logic analyzer hook up and optional right angle AGP connector. By changing the position of the pluggable fuses, it allows power from the motherboard or an external source (via terminal blocks) to power the AGP board on top of the extender. The voltage margin can be performed through an external power source. Current measurement can be performed by removing the fuses and bridging the sockets with an ammeter. A standard AGP connector can be added to the A or B side of the extender to form a right angle configuration. AGPEX4 is available in two form factors: AGPEX4-S for standard ATX chassis and AGPEX4-N for NLX chassis. For the right angle option, add -T suffix to the part number . The dimension is 5.85" L x 2.8" H.
