Expansion Modules
RA4060 RAID Accelerator
Module adds up to 128MB of
hardware cache to the
PM1564U3 controller.
Includes high speed RAID
data path engine, hardware
XOR and ECC.
SX4065U3 and SX4065F Channel Expansion
Modules add one (SX4065U3-1) or two (SX4065U3-2)
additional Ultra160 SCSI channels to any
SmartRAID VI single channel
SCSI controller, supporting
up to 60 SCSI devices from
a single PCI slot. Add one
Fibre Channel port to any
single channel SmartRAID VI
controller with the SX4065F.
DM4060 ECC EDO SO-DIMMs provide 16MB
(DM4060-16) or 64MB (DM4060-64) of high-speed
disk cache for PM1564U3 controller with
the RA4060 RAID Accelerator
module. Exclusive SmartCorrect™
ECC technology detects and
corrects up to 32-bit data errors.
The RA4060 also accepts
industry-standard 16MB or
