6Gb Single Port SAS HBA banner

SAS 6Gb Single Port HBA / RAID - 6Gb Single Port SAS HBA/RAID

Single Port SAS HBA Provides High Performance for Internal and External Storage Connections


The LSI SAS9212-4i4e host bus adapter provides high performance for internal and external storage connections. The LSI SAS9212-4i4e provides 8 lanes of 6Gb/s SAS and is matched with 8 lanes of PCI Express 2.0 5Gb/s performance to eliminate bottlenecks. Performance is based on the LSISAS2008 IO controller that highly integrates the latest enhancements in PCI Express and SAS technology.

The LSI SAS9212-4i4e has four x1 internal SATA connectors and one x4 mini-SAS external connector (SFF8088) enabling a low profile solution which provide SAS and SATA data transfer rates of 1.5, 3 and 6Gb/s per lane through automatic speed negotiation that can achieve over 320,000 IOPs. Enhanced features include T-10 Protection Information Model for early detection of and recovery from data corruption, and Spread Spectrum Clocking (SSC) for minimal EMI.

SAS Leadership

LSI offers the broadest SAS product portfolio in the industry with true end-to-end solutions including controllers, expanders, active-active multiplexers, ROCs, host bus adapters, RAID solutions, and external storage. LSI’s proven SAS core has completed extensive stress and interoperability testing resulting in the industry’s most robust, interoperable solution.

LSI has supplied leading edge serial technology to systems throughout the world for over seven generations, making LSI the most experienced enabler of serial interconnect for storage in the world. Integrators can be assured that their LSI adapter is providing the most advanced and robust serial technology available.

Fusion MPT Architecture

The LSI SAS host bus adapters are based on the Fusion MPT™ architected SAS controllers, which implements LSI’s Fusion-MPT (Message Passing Technology) architecture. Each controller features embedded PowerPC™ processors that deliver maximum host CPU offload. The built-in intelligence enables LSI to publish a single binary OS driver to operate any Fusion MPT controller or adapter. The architecture enables high performance, reduced software development, and faster time to market.
