WiebeTech on Monday introduced its
TeraCard eSATA Express34 host card. The $119.95 card fits into the Express/34 card slot on MacBook Pro laptops and provides them with external serial ATA (eSATA) connectivity, to attach to speedy external hard drive systems.
The card supports SATA 2 drives at up to 3.0Gbps and is compatible with SATA 1 as well. Drivers are included for Mac OS X and Windows.
The TeraCard sports two hot-swappable eSATA ports and supports 1-lane 2.5Gbps ExpressCard/34. It features two independent SATA channels and supports FIS-based switching with port multipliers. Two LEDs on the card indicate hard disk drive access.
