Designed to turn any Addonics device with our patented USIB interface port into a high performance External Serial ATA device. These Addonics Serial ATA-USIB interface cables take external data storage devices to a new performance level. eSATA-USIB interface cable provides more secured cable connection, improved durability, increased EMI protection and up to 2 meters cable length. (For more detail on this new SATA external connector, please review the following white paper posted on SATA-IO.org). The SATA-USIB interface cable used for interior Serial ATA connection plugs directly onto the onboard Serial ATA ports of your mainboard or host controller with internal ports.
The cable provides optional BUS power to Addonics Pocket Series storage via an integrated USB power cable. The eSATA cable attaches easily to any Addonics Pocket or Mobile Storage devices. Once installed, any Addonics external data storage device can be added or removed from the system via the high speed Serial ATA port, just like a USB or Firewire device. With Serial ATA interface, you have a fast 150 MBytes/sec data transfer capability.
Addonics also offers a full family of Serial ATA solutions including CardBus eSATA adapter for Notebooks and Combo Internal/External Serial ATA PCI controller for Desktops or server computers. These host adapters, in conjunction with the External Serial ATA-USIB interface cable, enable the implementation of a high performance storage system with plenty of convenient features and flexibilities that you can ever image.

* For DVD, CDRW, DVD/CDRW, DVD-R/RW, CD-ROM devices, Addonics Serial ATA PCI host controller or host controller based on Silicon Image chip may be required. Other Serial ATA controller chip sets may only work with Addonics drive enclosure systems. Check with your system manufacturer for the detail information on the Serial ATA controller it is already installed in your system.
(1) Serial ATA hot swap feature works only with controllers basing on Silicon Image chip set from our inhouse testing. Other controllers that are not Silicon Image based may not support hot swap. You may consider adding one of the Addonics Serial ATA host controllers to your systems to ensure the hot swap capability. New controllers from Intel and other suppliers may finally support this feature. Please verify with your controller manufacturer if you need to have hot swap in your application. Hot swap is supported in Windows 2000 and XP only. On other OS, drive can be removed without crashing system. But replacing with a different drive can result in crashing the OS.
