This is a listing of COTS [Commercial-Off-The-Self] PCI Express Card manufacturers. The types of products or devices the manufacturers produce are listed under the company name, in alphabetic order. In addition to functional cards; Protoboards, Prototyping Cards, Extender cards, adapters and Prototyping board manufacturers are also listed below. Extender boards may be either Passive [straight through] or Active [buffered signals].

PCI Express Card Manufacturers

PCI Express cards [PCIe]
PCI Express cards will not fit into a standard PCI slot, or an AGP slot.
PCI Express is not backward compatible with PCI or AGP, the connectors and signal levels are different.
The Mother Board has to have a PCI Express card slot.
Video cards in PCI-E format will normally be in the x16 format [which is replacing the AGP card slot]. So the Motherboard must have one x16 [Lane] PCI Express card slot.
Additional PCI Express mother board card slots will be of the x1 type. PCI Express cards and Mother boards were first introduced in mid 2004.
The PCI Express [PCIe] page provides a description and additional PCI Express OEM manufacturing links for IC's and connectors.

A General listing of COTS [Commercial-Off-The-Shelf] PCI Express Card Manufacturers. This page is sub-divided into Commercial PCI Express Video Cards and Industrial PCIe Boards. The products the companies produced are listed under the company name which are indexed in alphabetic order. In addition to functional cards, Prototyping Boards, Prototyping Cards, and Active/Passive Extender Board Manufacturers are also listed above.

A few of the acronyms used above:
PWB; stands for Printed Wiring Board, while PCB; Printed Circuit Board
I/O; Input/Output, referring to the signals leaving the rear panel of the card.
OEM; Original Equipment Manufacturer, is the company that designed and manufactured the card, not the necessarily the one selling it.
SBC; Single Board Computer, an embedded term used to describe a computer on a card.
CCA; Circuit Card Assembly, refers to a bard PCB with the components attached.
GPIB; General Purpose Interface Bus [also known as IEEE-488], A PCIe card having a GPIB interface on the rear panel.
MIL-STD relates to Military Standard, which normally means the card has an external interface defined by a MIL spec.
CAN; Controller Area Network. Another interface that might be found on the rear panel of a PCIe card.
DSP; Digital Signal Processing, a card used for DSP related work.
