MG9087 Controller

Manage up to 32 Drives with Cascade Support

The MegaRAC MG9087 helps optimize backplane layout with the latest enclosure management technologies. Highly integrated and space-optimized, this chip features an integrated internal oscillator, measures just 9 x 9 mm, and omits the usual components that drive backplane costs up - such as external crystal, flash memory, Power-On-Reset (POR) chip, regulator, EEPROM, LED Driver, FRU or transceivers.

The MG9087 controller manages LED patterns for up to 8 SAS/SATA drives, providing drive activity, fail/rebuild and locate signals. It supports SGPIO and IPMI over SMBUS, with SES2 support over SMBUS as well. It is suitable for a wide variety of systems featuring multiple drives, from 6 to 32. Currently 16 different off-the-shelf configurations are available from AMI.
