SAS I/O controller supports target, initiator modes simultaneously

Costa Mesa, Calif.—Emulex Corp. added the IOC 500S embedded SAS I/O Controller (IOC), to its driver compatible, multi-protocol ASIC family.

Designed for storage system providers that want flexibility in their storage controller designs, the Emulex IOC 500S provides the necessary performance to simultaneously support target and initiator modes, while also enabling the data integrity and scalability features enterprise-class storage systems require.

The IOC 500S is compatible with Emulex's Service Level Interface (SLI) technology that allows storage system providers to leverage driver-compatible designs across many different applications and protocols to reduce development efforts and time to market. Additional capabilities include Emulex BlockGuard for data integrity; scaleable up to 512 targets on chip; and eight SAS/SATA ports.

The IOC 500S integrates 1.2 GHz or 800 MHz Intel XScale microarchitecture for high performance applications.
