Multiple lane PCI Express cards allow for the implementation of data acquisition hardware with unprecedented performance. The SIS1104 was developed for the readout of data streams from pn-CCD pixel detectors at state of the art X-ray sources like the DESY FLASH. One of the key requirements is loss free high sustained data throughput.
