Cables

SFF-8087-to-SFF-8087 Multi-lane cables

Amcc 3ware 9690sa Sas Sata Raid Controller Driver Download Free

Use with an internal connector of the 9690SA-8I, 9690SA-8IF, 9690SA-4I, or 9690SA-4I4E 3ware RAID controller.

These cables are for use with a multi-lane-enabled drive backplane that has the SFF-8087 mini SATA/SAS 4i connectors. These cables have multi-lane cable plug connectors on each end (Figure 6).

Figure 6. Multi-lane Cable Serial ATA (SFF-8087)

SFF-8088 to SFF-8088 Multi-lane cables

For use with the 9690SA-8E and 9690SA-4I4E 3ware RAID controller cards, the SFF-8088 cable connects the external card connector to an external enclosure or backplane.

Figure 7. Multi-lane SFF-8088 to SFF-8088 SAS cable

Other Available Cables

Two additional cables for other connectors can be purchased separately:

3ware

SFF-8087 to SFF-8470 for external enclosures that require an SFF-8470 (Infiniband) connector

Multi-lane SATA breakout cable (SFF-8087) for direct connection to SATA drives from internal connectors.

Chapter 1. Getting Started

System Requirements

Motherboard and Slot Requirements

A workstation-class or server-class motherboard with an x8 or x16 PCI-Express® slot. A list of systems that have been tested is available at http://www.3ware.com/products/sys_compatibility.asp

Enclosure Requirements

In order to attach more than four drives per connector, enclosures with expanders are required.

In order to use enclosure support services, such as locating a drive by blinking an LED or notification of a rebuild, the enclosure needs to support SES (SCSI Enclosure Services). For a list of approved enclosures, see http://www.3ware.com/products/ sys_compatibility.asp.

Internal backplane connector: 4x SFF-8087 Mini Multi-lane 4i External enclosure backplane connector: Multi-lane SFF-8088

Note: Some older external enclosures may have an Infiniband connector, which will require an SFF-8088-to-SFF-8470 cable.

Drive Requirements

SAS and/or SATA drives can be used with the 3ware 9690SA RAID controller.

SATA Drives must meet SATA-1 (1.5 Gb/s) or SATA-2 (3.0 Gb/s) standards. Drives may be of any capacity or physical form factor.

SAS (3.0 Gb/s) drives may be of any capacity or physical form factor.

A list of tested drives is available at http://www.3ware.com/products/sys_compatibility.asp.
