Industry’s First Single-Chip, x16 Low-Profile HBAs with Tri-Mode SerDes Technology

Broadcom enables high performance storage connectivity and flexible system designs that support any combination of SAS, SATA, and PCIe (NVMe)* devices with the industry’s first x16 HBA series with Tri-Mode SerDes technology. The x16 PCIe Gen3 Tri-Mode HBA series delivers high-performance storage for bandwidth-intense applications such as big data analytics, media applications and applications performing large sequential reads.

High-Performance to Big Data Applications

The x16 Tri-Mode HBAs with 16 internal or external ports bring performance benefits to the storage tier by providing connectivity and data protection to large-scale storage enclosures computing big data applications such as analytics and business intelligence. Based on the single-core SAS3616W Tri-Mode I/O controller (IOC), the HBAs provide a bandwidth and IOPS performance increase compared to previous generations.

Endless Design Flexibility using Tri-Mode Controllers

Broadcom Tri-Mode SerDes Technology enables the operation of NVMe, SAS, or SATA storage devices in a single drive bay. A single controller can operate in all three modes concurrently and negotiate between the speeds and protocols to seamlessly work with any of the three types of storage devices. Tri-Mode support provides a non-disruptive way to evolve existing data center infrastructure. By upgrading to a Tri-Mode HBA, users can expand beyond SAS/SATA and use NVMe without major changes to other system configurations. Take advantage of x16 slots and optimize two x8 controllers into one card; delivering more versatility and optimal slot performance density.
