The MPX-3132 is a 2-port Serial ATA (SATA) Host Bus Adapter PCI Express mini card which maximises the performance of two SATA ports. Built on the high-speed Sil3132 SteelVine controller it connects two 3Gbps Serial ATA (SATA) device ports to a single lane Mini-PCI Express host connection and includes support for FIS based port multiplier switching which accesses multiple drives simultaneously, effectively aggregating the bandwidth of the drives (traditional SATA controllers only support CMD based switching which can only access a single drive at a time).
The board has a bandwidth of 3Gbps per port making it ideal for connecting multi-drive storage solutions and it is compatible with Windows & Linux operating systems. With software RAID drivers it enables RAID 0 (FAST) and 1 (SAFE) when single drives are connected to the (two) SATA ports.
The MPX-3132 PCI Express mini card supports dual-port SATA II, allowing system integrators to get to market quickly and take full advantage of the speed and plug-and-play convenience of SATA.
