Emphasizing interoperability and an end-to-end product family strategy, the Storage Standard Products division of LSI Logic Corp. has announced an expanded Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) product sampling program.

The HBA SAS sampling extends the opportunity for system, server and workstation equipment manufacturers to test with the fully functional SAS host bus adapter. According to LSI Logic, SAS technology extends SCSI interface solutions beyond Ultra320, allowing data-intensive applications and the Direct Attach Storage (DAS) markets to gain enhanced performance and scalability.

Since the SAS physical layer (PHY) is compatible with SATA, users will have the choice of populating systems with SAS or SATA hard disk drives, or a combination of both.

"Providing the industry's first true implementation of Serial Attached SCSI is a significant milestone that keeps us on schedule to deliver silicon in high production volumes later this year," said Bill Wuertz, VP and GM of Storage Standard Products division. "SAS technology delivers point-to-point, full bandwidth data transfers across all connections. This, along with SATA compatibility, results in an extremely flexible I/O solution for the marketplace," he added.
