Advanced Industrial Computer (AIC) announced that its chassis solutions now feature the LSI Logic Corp. MegaRAID SATA 300-8X adapter, which fully supports backplane compatibility with SATA drive Pin 11 utilization to automatically show all drive activity without special additional connectors.

"Several AIC chassis solutions have been designed to utilize our entire family of MegaRAID SATA adapters," said Joe Leader, Senior Director of Channel Marketing and Business Development at LSI Logic. "The chassis units leverage anywhere from one to six of our MegaRAID SATA 300-8X controllers depending upon the configuration."

The AIC SATA RAID chassis family ranges from 1U, four drive to 8U, 40 drive solutions featuring the LSI Logic MegaRAID SATA 150-4, 150-6 and the newly introduced 300-8X. The MegaRAID SATA 300-8X is an eight-port PCI-X SATA II adapter with an Intel IOP331 integrated I/O processor featuring enclosure management, up to 3Gbps transfer rate per port and native command queuing support (NCQ), which significantly increases performance in random I/O operations. The SATA 300-8X also offers an optional battery backup to ensure fault tolerance and offers a longer retention time in case of a power outage. The adapter's MSRP is $599.

"The MegaRAID SATA 300-8X's drive plane activity light compatibility utilizing Pin 11 on the drive power connector is a major feature demanded by the channel today," added Gene Lee, VP of AIC.
