Broadcom Brings RAID Home

New RAID controller aimed at consumer-market storage devices.

Broadcom Corp. this week announced an integrated controller aimed to bring network-attached storage capabilities to low-cost, easy-to-use consumer and small-business systems.

The BCM4780 includes a 32-bit MIPS core that runs RAID Level 1 mirroring or RAID Level 2 striping across pairs of similar disks, including flash drives attached to its USB 1.1 port.

The company said the controller supports up to four hard drives.
