PCIe eSATA / SATA 6Gbps Controller Card /w Full & Lowprofile Brackets (TPE-PCIESATA)

PCIe eSATA / SATA 6Gbps Controller Card /w Full & Lowprofile Brackets (TPE-PCIESATA)
Add 2 external or internal SATA 6 Gbps ports to a computer, through a PCI Express slot.

The TPE-PCIESATA PCI Express SATA III Controller Card (6 Gbps) gives you the option to add 2 internal or external SATA ports to your computer, through a single PCI Express (x1) card slot. The card features on board jumper selection, which enables you to configure the card to provide 2 internal or external SATA III ports, or one of each, as needed.

The SATA III card features Port Multiplier (PM) support on each port, which allows multiple drives to be connected over a single cable when necessary to maximize the number of SATA device connections while reducing the amount of cabling required.

The card is fully compliant with the SATA revision 3.0 specification (up to 6Gbps of data bandwidth), enabling you to utilize the speeds of high performance hard drives and Solid State Drives (SSD), as well as SATA-based optical drives (CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, Blu-Ray).

  • 2 x SATA 6.0Gb/s Internal Connectors

  • 2 x eSATA External Connectors

  • Support for most popular and libre (free) distributions

  • Not dependent on NDISWrapper, binary blobs, or proprietary drivers-firmware
