The SeriTek/1S2 Internal Host Adapter provides an easy and affordable way for Macintosh users to take advantage of the latest in Serial ATA storage interface technology. Macintosh users can achieve SCSI-like high-performance and data protection without the SCSI-like price. The SeriTek/1S2 boosts overall system performance with data transfer rates of up to 150MBytes/sec or 1.5Gbits/sec. In addition, the SeriTek/1S2 supports thinner and longer insulated Serial ATA cables with smaller 7-pin connectors which allows for easier installation and improved airflow, compared to wider and shorter Parallel ATA cables. Improved airflow results in a cooler Macintosh operating environment.
SeriTek/1S2 works with all Power Macintosh computers with an available PCI slot.
Affordable 2-port internal host controller providing high
performance support for up to two storage devices.
48-bit LBA support for drive sizes larger than 137GB.
32-bit, 33 or 66 MHz PCI bus support.
Compliant with 32-bit PCI bus version 2.2.
Plug-and-Play ease of use, completely self-contained booting
functionality, no driver installation necessary.
Boosts overall system performance with data transfer rates of up to
150MBytes/sec or 1.5Gbits/sec.
Bus master operation enhances multitasking during disk transfers
and increases CPU efficiency: The CPU is free to handle other tasks
during data transfers between the PCI Bus and system memory.
Support for thinner and longer insulated Serial ATA cables with
smaller 7-pin connectors allowing for easier installation and
improved airflow, resulting in a cooler operating environment.
Either end of Serial ATA cables with 7-ping connectors can be
connected to Serial ATA devices, or the SeriTek/1S2 host adapter.
Serial ATA cables can be up to 1 meter (39 inches) in length.
Reduced setting on storage devices (no master/slave) means easier
installation and replacement.
Ideal for a variety of Power Macintosh applications: Desktop
publishing, Audio/Video storage and editing, photo storage and
editing, servers, and gaming.
Data protection: Supports OS X RAID, OS 9 Software RAID (third
party software), and other storage utilities.
Note: The SeriTek/1S2 SATA PCI host adapter is not compatible with the latest G5 Macintosh computers with PCI Express slots
