88RC13xx SATA RAID Storage Controllers

The Marvell 88RC13xx family of RAID storage controllers delivers four lanes of PCIe 3.0 and up to 8 ports of 6Gbps SATA with industry-leading features, including hardware RAID 0, 1, 5, 6 and 10, 10Gbps USB 3.1 with Type-C connector support, and port multiplier support.

An on-chip dual core Cortex-R5 processor runs at 600MHz, off-loading RAID functions from the host processor, while maximizing storage performance and minimizing latencies. Support for AHCI and NVM Express provides the option of maintaining legacy compatibility or targeting superior performance.
