"KONA and Io Express drivers are now "Thunderbolt-aware." This means that these AJA products may be hosted in a PCIe to Thunderbolt adapter chassis or an ExpressCard/34 to Thunderbolt adapter. Note: Since PCIe and ExpressCard/34 to Thunderbolt adapters are new to the market, AJA cannot guarantee compatibility with all 3rd-party adapters or products."
