During the Computex 2004 tradeshow in Taipei, LSI Logic Corp. demonstrated a fully-functional Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) expander silicon.

According to LSI Logic, the SASx12 expander builds on five-generations of development expertise and industry-recognized SAS expander technology standards leadership.

"Our engineering team and validation lab stands apart in its ability to debug and bring to market a reliable, feature-rich SAS expander solution," said Dan Roehrich, director of hardware development for LSI Logic Storage Standard Products. "The lessons we've learned over five generations of expander development and through our leadership role in writing the SAS expander standards, enable us to efficiently detect and solve problems that would otherwise significantly impact our customers."

Showcased were an SASx12 expander IC and what the company claims as the first, fully-functional SAS RAID adapter card. Fiber Channel products and the MyStorage management software were also shown in the LSI Logic suite.

The SAS RAID adapter product family will feature the company's MegaRAID technology products, utilizing Intel XScale technology based processors (code name Dobson) and the SAS1064 controller IC.
