NS1066 is a versatile high-performance and low power USB 3.0 to SATA bridge controller. On one side, it interfaces with the USB interface and is compatible with USB Super-speed (5Gbps), High-speed (480Mbps), and Full-speed (12Mbps). On the other side, it interfaces with hard drive or SSD devices through the SATA interface. NS1066 and NS1066X are pin-to-pin compatible. NS1066 supports SATA I (1.5Gbps) and SATAII (3Gbps). NS1066X also supports SATA III (6Gbps).
Self-developed high-performance, low-jitter, and low-power USB 3.0 and SATA transceivers with built-in test capabilities for guaranteed functions and performance.
Integrated adaptive equalization circuit (patent pending) for the USB Super-speed (5Gbps) receiver which automatically compensates for the USB 3.0 connector and cable signal degradation.
Configurable on-chip voltage regulators (patent pending), pin selectable LDO or DC/DC allowing users to make trade-offs between power and cost.
Dedicated LED controllers which provide versatile LED control functions without the intervention of 8051 MCU or firmware.
