PLX Interface-to-SATA Controllers
PLX / Avago's Interface-to-SATA Controllers are used for bridging USB interfaces to a SATA hard disks. The OXU3100 supports a number of power saving modes, making it suitable for use in bus-powered applications. The OXU3100 integrates a USB3.0 device, which is backward compatible with USB 2.0, and a SATA II host controller and enables designers to create products with a minimal number of external components and a low cost BOM. The OXU931S is a single chip solution for bridging between USB2.0 and SATA disks. Optimized for entry level external storage applications, the OXU931S integrates a USB2.0 device and a SATA host controller. In addition, the OXU931S can operate without any external memory thanks to the on-chip masked ROM.
