With 36 ports, the LSI SASx36 Expander builds a foundation on which your business can continue to make use of its prior-generation SAS and SATA device investments, especially where SCSI infrastructure may still be in use. The LSI SASx36 supports up to 32 drives and 1024 SAS addresses. When solutions call for power management, performance, simplicity, and security, the LSI SASx36 delivers cost-effective opportunities.

  • Enable higher enclosure capacities through 36 PHY edge expansion
  • Provide high device throughput with SAS and SATA support up to 3Gb/s, including wide port support
  • Ensure ample enclosure bandwidth through integrated RAM and an ARM processor
