BB-SATA2-PCIE01 PCI Express Serial ATA-II RAID Host Controller





The SATA2-PCIE01 is a two-port (internal) PCI Express to Serial ATA controller. The SATA2-PCIE01 is designed to provide multiple port serial ATA connectivity with minimal host overhead and host to device latency. The SATA2-PCIE01 supports a 1-lane 2.5 Gb/s PCI Express bus and the Serial ATA Generation 2 transfer rate of 3.0 Gb/s (300 MB/s).
