    SAS/SATA Expander IC?

    rkruz

      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.

      Thank you
