ATTO intros SAS adapters

ATTO Technology has announced the ExpressSAS H380 and H308 SAS host adapters, additions to its existing family of SAS adapters. The H380 and H308 models use the PCI Express Intel IOC340 I/O Processor with integrated XScale to deliver claimed transfer rates of up to 3 Gigabits per second per port. The units also allows users to connect to both SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) and SATA II (Serial ATA) devices. Both units feature a low-profile design, and the ExpressSAS H380 offers connectivity through two external x4 MiniSAS SFF8088 connectors, while the H308 model utilizes two internal x4 MiniSAS SFF8087 connectors supporting up to 256 devices when connected through SAS Expanders. Each of the eight ports on the ExpressSAS adapter is capable of delivering up to 300 megabytes per second performance. ATTO officials said "(That's) enough to handle the most demanding applications such as 2K and 4K film, multiple layers of complex, uncompressed real-time effects, and high-definition video editing." The new ExpressSAS host adaptors will be generally available this fall. Pricing information was not disclosed.
