SATA card for G5 Macs
WiebeTech has announced its new low-cost solution to add SATA connectivity to Macs or PCs with standard PCI/PCI-X expansion slots. The new card is the first introduction of the TeraCard Series of host adapters from WiebeTech. The new TCS1-1 adapter card has one external and one internal Serial ATA port to allow connection of SATA devices--on two independent channels. The card, a 32-bit, 33/66MHz fully compliant PCI host interface, supports bootable, hot-swappable storage devices on a Mac as well as deep sleep under Mac OS. It ships with two brackets to support low profile PCI and regular size PCI in one card. The TCS1-1 is priced at $60 and is available now.
