MacBook, USB2 ExpressCard

Synchrotech has unveiled its MicroU2E USB 2.0 to USB 2.0 Mode ExpressCard 34 | 54 Host Adapter, offering USB 2.0 Mode ExpressCard device support on USB 2.0 ports. The adapter features a small footprint that is slightly larger than a book of matches, accepting USB 2.0-based ExpressCards in either 34 or 54 form factors. Supported USB mode ExpressCards include Novatel Wireless Merlin ExpressCards (XU870, EX720, V740), storage media ExpressCards like Datafab's expSSD, RS-232 host adapters like Synchrotech's EXP34-RS232-01, most ExpressCard to memory card media adapters like Synchrotech's EXP34-ADP-CF2-01, and several others. The device does not work with any ExpressCard using the PCI Express (PCIe) portion of the ExpressCard standard, however, but allows the use of USB-based ExpressCards in the latest generation of 3G wireless devices on slotless MacBooks. The accessory is priced at $40.
