HardWare RAID 0 and 1 with 2 slot SATA SSD B Key M.2 PCIe * 4 Lanes Card
Diarts designs Hardware RAID 0 1 SATA SSD B Key PCIe card the card supports 2 slot B key M.2 card with 10G transfer Rate. The SSD SATA base spec. it supports SATA III 6G. The card comes with Hardware RAID function. It is must better then Software RAID because Hardware RAID does not use CPU resource. Therefore CPU can take card more OS function. That is why Hardware Raid is more use full without PC’s resource. SATA SSD B key M.2 card, we can supports M.2 size 2242, 2260, 2280, and 22110. It can supports all SSD size capability. That we do not worry about which M.2 size. It cannot support M key M.2 card. It is different Intel EDSFF SFF-TA-1002 and Sansung NF1 spec.
Supports 2 slot SATA SSD M.2 with Hardware Raid spec
Raid function at less needs 2 or more storage. Our designs with 2 SATA SSD B Key M.2 spec. Raid has two types one is software Raid, other is Hardware raid.
Hardware raid can save more CPU resource for OS system, and ASM1062R chipset can take care RAID system inside chipset. The send finial information to OS. That is why it can save more CPU resource. That is a reason Hardware RAID is more expensive than Software Raid.
Why RAID 0 and 1
In the marketing, it has few type of RAID spec 0, 1, 5, 6, and 10. RAID 0 and 1 needs less 2 HDD, RAID 5 needs 3 HDD, and more. Why needs RAID. That just we can keep data with save without any damage. RAID 1, it needs 2 HDD and the system only sees 1 HDD. But when you save data into HDD, it will save into 2 HDD. When 1 HDD has been damage. It still has one HDD, That data still safe. That is why we need to have RAID function for our system.
Embedded interface M.2
Most of IPC system needs smallest case, When they designs IPC M/B without PCIe slot. Before it has Mini PCIe interface. Mini PCIe is good for all kind of Add-on Card, but it has only 1 Lane spec. But M.2 supports Lane x 1, Lane x 2, and Lane x 4 – 3 type Lane spec and 4 Key interface.
It supports PCIe * 2 Lanes, SATA, USB 2.0, USB 3.0, Audio, UIM, HSIC, I2C, SMBus. With Add-on card only take PCIe interface. Also can use SATA to extend SATA to 2 port SATA or 4 port SATA to support Multiplier for Raid 0 or 1, We also design those type product too. It also supports USB 2.0 or 3.0 port. it can extend 1 port USB port, But it has no power for 5V, it needs external Power for 5V
2 SATA PCIe Card
PCIe slot is it basic interface slot with M/B. Standard M/B has PCIe * 16, PCIe * 8 PCIe * 4 and PCIe *1 slot. The Card it designs with PCIe * 2 spec. Why PCIe * 2, That can support more high Speed transfer rate for SATA port. it supports up to 10G transfer Raid. It is much high speed than Marketing has.
Interface Card – PCIe PCI Express
PCIe is newest interface for addon card. It is from ISA 8bit, ISA 16bit, PCI, and PCIe. All interface supports PC computer to add different mode such as USB, VGA, HDMI, Sound Card, 1394, PS II, Serial RS232 RS422 RS485, …. It needs to have slot to add-on Card, that slot interface is ISA, PCI, and PCIe. The PCIe is newest interface
NGFF the name has been change to M.2, so far, it has 4 kinds mode A Key, E key, B key, and M key. All calls M.2 card, it supports different
A key supports PCIe x 2 lanes USB, DP
E key supports PCIe x 1 lane, USB,
B key supports PCIe x 2 lanes, USB, SATA,
M key supports PCIe x 4 lanes, SATA
PCB size also few kind – 2230, 2242, 2260, 2280, 22110
SATA 6G is SATA III spec, SATA I 1.5G, SATA II 3G, and SATA III 6G. SATA III is last version of SATA. Why it does not go up, because of spindle speed. But SATA also go for SSD spec, The transfer rate has been up. But it is SATA III 6G spec.
SSD vs HDD Drive
SSD is more marketing share than HDD Driver. Why the marketing change so fast. It has few reasons.
1 – SSD price becomes cheaper than before
2 – HDD is less durable than SSD
3 – SSD and HDD are same spec with SATA III, but SSD transfer Rate keep to rise.
4 – HDD has big capacities up to 20TB spec
What the SATA Drive going?
SATA drive will be – keep in marketing, but transfer rate will not keep going. It will not have SATA 4 in marketing
SATA SSD, HDD will keep in marketing
Yes, it will keep in marketing, and SATA has two type one is SSD one is with spindle speed, Both different, but it will keep in marketing.
With B key SATA SSD M.2 spec. it can save more space inside of M/B. We just need 1 slot PCIe slot it supports 2 SATA SSD and RAID 0 and 1. Also with Hardware RAID spec. The Card supports high speed transfer rate, also give data with safe.
