Tachyon® Protocol Controllers for Storage Systems

Our SAS/SATA Protocol Controllers (SPCve and SPCv) are optimized for fabric-attached RAID storage system applications and SAS/SATA Host Bus Adapter (HBA) applications. This controller family significantly increases total system performance, diagnostics, scalability and manageability.

The SPCve and SPCv controllers each provide an efficient and scalable architecture that enables industry-leading system performance and enables software leverage between controllers and protocols. They provide system designers with end-to-end diagnostics and error handling mechanisms to increase system performance, availability, and most importantly, manageability.

Use these controllers in combination with our market-leading SAS/SATA expanders, multiplexers, and enclosure management solutions to achieve unique end-to-end features and algorithms from host to Hard Disk Drive (HDD) or Solid-State Drive (SSD) applications.
