  • 36 ports - 28 internal via 7xSFF-8643 connectors, and 8 external via 2xSFF-8644 connectors
  • 12Gb/s throughput at each port - both SAS and SATA drives supported
  • Low profile MD2 form factor, PCIe x4 interface
  • Backwards compatible to 6Gb/s SAS or SATA devices
  • Supports SGPIO and SES2 enclosure management
  • Compatible with Adaptec as well as third-party controller cards like Broadcom, Areca, etc.

This SAS expander board allows you to support more hard drives than your internal port controller will support. For example, if you have a Broadcom 9361-4i or 9361-8i you are limited to 4 and 8 drives respectively. If you use this board alongside those cards, you can use up to 20 hard drives on either card, plus you'll have the external ports to connect additional SAS expander-based JBODs.
