Thunderbolt 3 Interface

A Tunderbolt 3 PXIe controller card for direct connection to a PC based Thunderbolt 3 port, functioning much as the MXIe interfacing does now.

We are planning to use Thunderbolt 3.0 . Any issues if we are interfacing with CAN , RS485 and DAQ Modules

Since it's all "just" PCI Express data by the time it gets to the controller, the main thing to watch out for is system bandwidth, but I would assume you're fine with those types of cards. With passive cables, the PXIe-8301 should be good for around 2.0 GB/s of system bandwidth, and with active cables we've seen around 2.3 GB/s.
