The SD4-SWEEP is a peripheral slot card for CompactPCI® Serial systems, equipped with a quad-channel PCI Express® to SATA 6Gbps controller, and four on-board sockets for M.2 solid state drives (SSD). available of 512MB as of current, M.2 is a fast emerging embedded storage module form factor. The Marvell® SATA 3.0 controller allows RAID or non RAID operation.
The SD4-SWEEP fits into any CompactPCI® Serial peripheral slot that is PCIe enabled. For optimum performance a fat pipe slot may be chosen. Hardware RAID operation is supported, running with an enhanced ARM-based processor to offload the host CPU. Thanks to the four M.2 sockets provided on the SD4-SWEEP, a JBOD or hardware RAID level 0/1/10 system can be easily configured.
