Intel expands storage component offering

Intel expanded its line of components for storage products with a serial ATA controller, an iSCSI storage adapter and a low-voltage Celeron processor.

The company claimed the 31244 serial ATA controller can transfer data at 1.5Gbps on each of its four ports. The controller, which links a system's motherboard with a hard disk drive, improves performance in network attached storage devices and RAID systems.

The Intel PRO/1000 T IP iSCSI adapter is meant for storage area networks. The adapter uses Intel's Xscale processor technology to take over IP (Internet Protocol) and iSCSI tasks from the host processor, which increases throughput in SANs.

Intel also announced a version of its Celeron processor that does not need extensive cooling and can be fitted in small storage devices. The 400MHz ultra low-voltage Celeron processor dissipates 4.1 watts of heat.

Available in the first quarter of 2003, the 31244 serial ATA controller will cost $22 (£14) in 10,000-unit quantities and the iSCSI $695 (£446) in single units. The ULV Celeron processor at 400MHz is now available for $38 (£24) when bought in quantities of 1,000.
