Hehe, that makes me laugh. Thanks to huge power-hungry GPU boards, the full length/height slots — which I thought
were dead in the late 1990s — have come back and established their rightful position 🙂

One thought on - Half-height PCIe analog FXO card

  • Thanks Eric & Tim, I’ll put Sangoma back on the shopping list then 🙂

    I also found a thing called a “Jingletel A400EL” which looks like an
    A400-module-compatible low-height PCIe card…. but the name suggests it’s
    yet more Chinese knock-off cr*p. With postage to the UK, it’s about the same
    price as a Sangoma, which in turn is about the same as I paid for the server
    (after cashback).

    Harumph.

    I wonder if I could hacksaw an A400E into fitting…..

    If anyone in the UK has an old Sangoma A200 (I only need 1x FXO, if it comes
    with 2x FXS as well that’s a brucie bonus) they’d be willing to sell for up
    to about 60 quid, please drop me a line.

    Cheers,
    Ade.
