16-port SAS HBA Provides Maximum Connectivity and Performance for External JBOD and External RAID enclosures
The Avago SAS 9302-16e 16-port, 12Gb/s SAS host bus adapter (HBA) provides increased connectivity and high performance for high-end servers and storage applications. The SAS 9302-16e HBA is based on the Avago SAS 3008 IO controller that integrates the latest enhancements in SAS and PCI Express technology and can achieve 2.8 million IOPS.
The Avago SAS 9302-16e has four (x4) external mini SAS HD connectors (SFF8644) and supports 16 PCI Express lanes that comply with the latest PCI Express 3.0 specification with 8Gb/s per lane in a single direction. The HBA also supports 16 individual SAS ports operating at 12Gb/s. The HBA is backward compatible with previous PCIe and SAS generations through automatic negotiation and provides SAS data transfer rates of 12, 6, and 3Gb/s per lane, and SATA data transfer rates at 6 and 3Gb/s per lane. Avago provides a complete suite of industry standard operating system drivers.
