Product Description

  • SATA PCI-Express 2 Channel SATA II Host Adapter
  • RAID BIOS selectable via Dip Switch (RAID/NO-RAID)
  • NCQ and Port Multiplier Features Built-In The SS-SA2R is the most powerful Serial ATA II RAID controller to accommodate Serial ATA II hard drives with the new technology of RAID 0 (striping), RAID 1 (mirroring) and RAID 0+1, RAID 5 over Port Multipliers. Any system with a PCI Express interface can simply add the Serial ATA devices by simply adding the SS-SA2R RAID controller card and loading the drivers and utility into the system. Serial ATA is a high-speed serial link replacement for the parallel ATA attachment of mass storage devices. The serial link employed is a high-speed differential layer that utilizes gigabit technology and 8b/10b encoding. The current data rate is 1.5Gb/s (=150MB/s) and 3.0Gb/s. It will supports 6Gb/s in the future.

The SS-SA2R supports two serial ATA ports, it supports 2 serial ATA devices (one for each) or can connect more devices via Port Multipliers. It provides complete software driver and RAID KIT. It is the right choice for a PCI Express to Serial ATA versatile devices.
