SAS3416 Tri-Mode I/O Controller

Ideal for the host or drive side connect for external storage controllers requiring a SAS/SATA interface

Currently Viewing:

Broadcom Tri-Mode SerDes technology enables seamless operation of PCIe, SAS or SATA storage devices in a single drive bay. The introduction of PCIe devices executing NVMe to the existing SAS/SATA infrastructure makes industry standard hot-pluggable drive bays even more versatile. Whether you’re building external or cloud-based storage systems for high connectivity, or outfitting servers, the SAS3416 16-port, 12Gb/s Tri-Mode SAS/SATA/PCIe IOC provides choices for storage optimization by enhancing direct-attached storage (DAS) solutions.

This high-performance, sixth-generation I/O controller supports T-10 data protection model and optical support, PCIe hot plugging, and up to 2,000 connected devices.

  • Capitalize on the wide bandwidth of 8 PCI Express 3.1 lanes with SAS transfer rates of up to 12Gb/s and SATA rates up to 6Gb/s
  • Extend existing end-user investments with DataBolt technology, which provides the benefits of 12Gb/s SAS with existing 6Gb/s drive devices
  • Deliver more than one million IOPS
