- 1-to-5 SATA Port Multiplier
- Full support for FIS-based switching and command-based switching SATA host controllers
- Supports host and device link rates of 1.5Gbps and 3Gbps with auto-negotiation
- Supports host control of hard disk drive staggered spin-up
- All ports support hot plug and extended (48 bit LBA) drive capabilities
- ATAPI support
- Features independent 8 KByte FIFO per Device Serial ATA channel for reads and writes
- Include post and device status and activity LEDs
- Coupling with eSATA_PCIe8, eSATA_PCIe21, eSATA_PCIX to support RAID Functions (RAID 0, 1, 5, 10, Concatenated and JBoD)
With its unique data aggregation capability and 3Gbps serial link capability, the SPM3726-I is able to take full advantage of 3Gbps host link bandwidth and FIS-based switching host controllers by bundling together data from device ports and sending it over the 3Gbps host link. Additionally, the feature-rich SPM3726-I supports all the port multiplier related SATA II extensions allowing system designers to exploit the full potential of SATA in their storage solutions.
The SPM3726-I supports host and device link rates of 1.5Gbps and 3Gbps with auto-negotiation allowing system designers to utilize 3Gbps host links with today's 1.5Gbps hard drives, and to future proof designs for the emergence of 3Gbps SATA hard drives. Additionally, the SPM3726-I contains a SATA enclosure management bridge (SEMB) to pass in-band enclosure management information between the host and an enclosure management device. Other important features include: programmable high drive capability for backplane and external applications, asynchronous notification to eliminate the need for host polling to determine if a device has been added or removed, and hot plug support.
Coupling with proper host controllers such as Silicon Image SiI3124, SiI3132 and Marvell 88SE6145, SPM3726 - SATA II port multiplier, a high reliable and extremely fast variety of storage applications (RAID 0, 1, 5, 10, Concatenated and JBoD).
SPM3726-I delivers the performance and connectivity required for servers and I/O demanding applications such as CD-ROM servers, Video-On-Demand (digital content and high-definition video), database servers, workstations, high-end desktops, software RAID sub systems, and image systems.
