AMCC’s award winning Multi-lane design enables highly reliable and streamlined enterprise-class SATA storage solutions by greatly reducing the number of cables needed to connect controllers, backplanes, and standard SATA drives.
The Multi-lane SATA cable/connection system is fast, secure, simple, and clutter free. It combines the RAID controller’s eight SATA ports into a single locked connection. Eight lanes of 3Gb/s SATA traffic travel through just one cable from the RAID controller to the system backplane or to up to eight hard drives with a breakout cable.
