Im looking for a simple IC expander solution to support a Host via RAID Controller (ATTO) to 6 solid state drives.
I see LSI and PMC have devices for 24 or more ports. These seem to require some development other glue logic or interfaces to get them to work.
Is there a simple drop in and use Expander IC for this simple architecture?
Host > RAID Controller > Drives 1....Drive 6 (SAS or SATA drives).
Any thoughts appreciated.
