The Broadcom SAS 9300-16e 16-port, 12Gb/s SAS host bus adapter provides increased connectivity and high performance for high-end servers and storage applications. The SAS 9300-16e HBA is based on the SAS 3008 IO controller that integrates the latest enhancements in SAS and PCI Express (PCIe) technology and can achieve 2 million IOPs.

The SAS 9300-16e has four (x4) external mini SAS HD connectors (SFF8644) and supports 8 PCIe lanes that comply with the latest PCIe 3.0 specification with 8Gb/s per lane in a single direction. The adapter also supports 16 individual SAS ports operating at 12Gb/s. The adapter is backward compatible with previous PCIe and SAS generations through automatic negotiation and provides SAS data transfer rates of 12, 6, and 3Gb/s per lane, and SATA data transfer rates at 6 and 3Gb/s per lane. Broadcom provides a complete suite of industry standard operating system drivers.
