SAS/SATA I/O Controllers
For Server Applications
Microsemi's SSCi 12G SmartIOC product family offers the industry's first high performance SAS/SATA IO controller with support for hardware RAID 0/1/10, RAID 5, and native HBA modes. This controller family delivers the lowest Total Cost of Ownership while enabling new features and higher performance to the enterprise server and hyperscale data center server market.
Towards the host it supports 8 lanes of PCIe 3.0, each lane supporting PCIe rates up to 8.0 Gbit/s. To interface to drives and/or expanders it supports up to 16 lanes of 1.5G/3G/6G SATA or 3G/6G/12G SAS. Furthermore, the SSCi supports Microsemi Adaptec drivers for Linux, Windows, VMware, Solaris and FreeBSD and benefits from management tools compatible with these drivers for the associated RAID products from Microsemi.
For Storage Systems
Microsemi's SPCve and SPCv controllers are part of the highly-integrated 12G SAS and 12G SATA protocol controller family optimized for fabricated RAID storage system applications and SAS/SATA HBA applications. This controller family significantly increases total system performance, diagnostics, scalability, and manageability.
The SPCve and SPCv controllers each provide an efficient and scalable architecture that enables industry-leading system performance. They provide application-programming environments that are compatible with other members of the Tachyon SAS/SATA controller family and Tachyon Fibre Channel controllers, enabling software leverage between controllers and protocols.
