The SAS 5/E Adapter from Dell™ is a non-RAID adapter that can communicate to Dell compliant SAS and SATA II external enclosures. The SAS 5/E Adapter is intended to communicate to direct attached storage array products such as the Dell PowerVault MD3000 or the Powervault TL2000 tape library via 2 x4 external connectors. It utilizes high performance SAS 3 Gbps technology to connect to the hard drives, and the next generation of host interface technology, PCI Express™ (PCI-E). In the SAS5E HBA controller the LSI SAS 1068 is a 2 x 4 port SAS/SATA controller, with each of the 8 PHYs capable of 3.0 and 1.5 Gbps SAS/SATA link rates. Each port on the LSISAS1068 supports SAS and SATA devices using the SAS Serial SCSI Protocol (SSP), Serial Management Protocol (SMP), Serial Tunneling Protocol (STP), and SATA. It has a 1 MB flash memory that stores the firmware image, key configuration data and, limited error logging information and it supports pre-failure notifications sent by the hard drives SMART events. It is is RoHS and SAS 1.1 compliant, and offers data transfer rate up to 300 MBps per link in each direction. This product has been tested and validated on Dell Systems. It is supported by Dell Technical Support when used with a Dell system.

These adapters are useful when connecting enclosures like a Dell PowerVault MD3000 enclosure or a PowerVault TL2000 tape library to a host server.
