CSP100 SERIAL ATA HOST CONTROLLER PCI CARD
Using Silicon Image SIL3512CT128 Chip, this unit will provide cost-effective, high-performance storage connectivity for desktop PCs, sub-entry servers and network storage.
The CSP100 has led high-volume PC applications, with its advanced capabilities. The CSP100 is also extending its leadership into high-performance server and storage system applications, as evidenced by recent design win activity.
We are pleased to be working with leading storage solutions provider Adaptec to fuel adoption across a broad range of Serial ATA applications. Adaptec's strong presence in the retail, channel and OEM markets for PC, server and storage systems makes them a strong partner for SATALink products. The CSP100 controller delivers the reliability and performance we need to provide a robust solution to our customers, the CSP100 will be key as we build a comprehensive family of reliable, easy-to-use controllers for desktop and enterprise storage that operate under the same browser-based software management tool as our SCSI and ATA product lines to simplify storage management.
The CSP100 enables support of new Serial ATA devices for the highest data transfer rates, simpler disk drive cabling and easier PC assembly. Because it is a fully integrated solution compliant with the Serial ATA 1.0 specification, the CSP100 host controller enables add-in card and motherboard manufacturers to achieve the full first-generation Serial ATA 1.5 Gb/s transfer speed with a single chip. A 32-bit 33/66MHz PCI bus and two independent Serial ATA ports ( PC Inside ).
Each unit has its transport, link and PHY layers based on Silicon Image's proven High-speed Multi-Layer Serial Link (MSL") architecture.
The CSP100 offers advanced Serial ATA II features.
The CSP100 offers Variable output strengths for backplane applications and hot-plug capability.
The CSP100 is an extension to the Serial ATA 1.0 specification.
The CSP100 is the first Serial ATA host controller on the market to support ATAPI commands, making it compatible with optical devices such as DVDs and CD-R/Ws.
Adaptec's Serial ATA products leverage the company's leading SCSI and RAID technologies to provide customers with robust solutions that are reliable and easy to use.
The CSP100 delivers low-cost Serial ATA storage connectivity for desktop PCs, sub-entry servers and network storage.
The CSP100 Serial ATA card features data transfer rates up to 150 MB/second per channel, and longer, thinner cabling than parallel ATA to provide better airflow and cooling, simplifying routing and enabling smaller form factors for systems builders.
