PCIe 3.0 12Gb/s SAS Host Adapters

The ARC-1330 series is a low profile host adapter. It brings the fastest available connections to SAS data transfer rates of 12, 6, and 3 Gb/s per lane and SATA data transfer rates of 6 and 3Gb/s per lane interface storage on any computer, workstation and server with PCI Express 3.0 interface.

The adapters are backwards compatible with existing and future RAID, and expander solutions. It provides maximum bandwidth and I/O connectivity for high-end server-based storage systems with internal storage or when connecting to large-scale storage enclosures.
