Oxford Semi intros SATA bridge chips for external storage

Oxford Semiconductor claims to be the first company to offer a SATA interfacing bridge chip to external storage manufacturers. Five new chips to be introduced during this quarter will enable the integration of multiple interfaces on one external storage device – such as harddrives. Oxfords 92x product family supports USB2.0, FireWire400, FireWire800, and external SATA.

According to a statement, the chips also will offer dual integrated SATA ports and hardware accelerated RAID functionality, including striping, mirroring and spanning. (THG)
