Product Overview
Product Brief
ASC3030
ASB3922
ASB3925
The Fast SCSI solution from AdvanSys has high performance and affordability built-in. Our
ASC3030 is a single-chip, highly integrated Fast SCSI controller designed specifically for
interfacing the Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) bus to the SCSI bus. We use a patented
architecture utilizing an application specific RISC engine and integrated memory to yield high
performance yet cost effective Fast SCSI products.
ASC3030 FAST SCSI CHIP
Product Highlights
All handshakes with the SCSI peripheral devices are managed by an advanced Reduced
Instruction Set Computing (RISC) engine. Through PCI bus mastering, the ASC3030 transfers
data between the SCSI devices and the main system memory at the maximum possible speed of
the PCI bus (bursts to 133 MB/s) with no intervention from the host CPU.
Multi-threading capability allows the ASC3030 to process up to 20 data requests simultaneously
to minimize SCSI bus idle time. For SCSI-1 devices, there can only be one outstanding request
on each device. For SCSI-2 devices with multiple outstanding requests (queuing of multiple
commands), the ASC3030 provides an I/O throughput several times that of a single-threaded
SCSI chip.

PCI FAST SCSI ADAPTER BOARD
Product Highlights
The AdvanSys Fast SCSI Host Adapter with high performance and low cost is an excellent
solution for your PC Desktop SCSI needs. With no jumpers to set, Plug and Play makes
installation a breeze! Add up to seven SCSI peripherals such as Fast SCSI hard drives, CDRecordable drives, CD-Rewriteable drives, removable hard drives (Iomega or SyQuest), tape
drives, MO drives, printers and scanners and your multimedia desktop is ready to go!
Based on our own ACS3030 chip technology the AdvanSys Fast SCSI Host Adapters ensure a
high level of integration and superior reliability. Featuring data transfer rates of up to
10MB/sec., our Bus Master and RISC technology allows large blocks of data to be processed
with minimum CPU utilization.
AdvanSys builds its host adapters to the highest level of quality standards in ISO-9002
Certified Facilities. To ensure both software and hardware compatibility, AdvanSys Fast SCSI
Host Adapters undergo extensive testing with all types of host systems, operating systems, and
SCSI peripherals.
