BB-SATA2-PCIE1X11 Multiple port Serial ATA (SATA)/Parallel ATA (PATA) to PCI Express Host Adapter





SATA2-PCIE1x11 is a multiple port Serial ATA (SATA)/Parallel ATA (PATA) to PCI Express (PCIE) Host Adapter. SATA2-PCIE1x11 takes advantages of the 2.5 Gb/s burst rate of 1-lane PCI Express bus and the Serial ATA Generation 2 transfer rate of 3.0 Gb/s (300 MB/s) interface. This solution provides full PCI Express and Serial ATA (SATA)/Parallel ATA (PATA) functionality and performance. SATA2-PCIE1x11 delivers the performance and connectivity required for servers and I/O demanding applications such as CD-ROM servers, Video-On-Demand, database servers, workstations, high-end desktops, software RAID sub systems, and image systems.
