  • Item Can be used with any IDE (PATA) Hard Drive from 80GB up to 500GB X 2 in RAID 0 Configuraton.
  • Item Can also function as a Single Device Controller for One IDE(PATA) drive up to 500GB in USB 2.0 and Firewire 800/400 Mode RAID 0 Striping BUILT-IN, Can be disabled VIA firmware Utility! RAID 0 - Disk Striping With RAID 0, or a configuration known as "data striping", data is written in sequential sections across more than two drives. RAID 0 is easy to implement, and it can dramatically improve performance. Several drives can be accessed at once, minimizing the overall "seek" time of larger files. This configuration has no data redundancy and therefore no protection against data loss, however, so it should not be used for business-critical applications. Oxford 912 CoolGear Firewire Bridge Board FireWire 800 (IEEE 1394b) to IDE (ATA/ATAPI) bridge board featuring Oxford OXFW912 FireWire 800 (IEEE 1394b) to IDE Bridge Controller INTRODUCTION CGS-1U3FI is ideally suited for tailgate interface applications for removable-media drives CD-ROM, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-ROM, DVD-RAM, tape drive, and hard disk drive. It allows two IDE drives (Master and Slave) to be connected to FireWire (IEEE 1394) serial bus in a plug-and-play fashion. CGS-1U3FI allows users to easily hot-swap IDE drive without interrupting the current operation. CGS-1U3FI provides the perfect solution for data backup and transferring of data between computers using IDE (ATA/ATAPI) devices.
