The IntelliProp IPC-SS107A-DT, SAS Target Core is an industry standard Serial-SCSI (SAS) core that enables device applications to connect to high throughput SAS storage devices. The protocol interface is compliant to the SAS specification as defined by the ANSI T10 Organization and provides an industry compliant SAS 3.0 and 6.0 Gb/s interface. As with all IntelliProp cores, the IPC-SS107A-DT core is fully verified in psuedo-random simulation. Applications include: Internal interconnect for workstation and server storage; External workstations/Enterprise Storage interconnect; HDD /SSD hot-swap environments.


  • Fully compliant to the SAS 3.0 and 6.0 Gb/s industry specifications
  • Processor specific interfaces for register access.
  • Configurable memories for performance and area trade-offs
  • Supports OOB and speed negotiation sequences
  • Auto ACK/NAK transmission, credit management and Open/Close connections
