The Areca ARC-1680X




Here is our first look at the Areca ARC-1680X. The card is able to use a battery backup unit and the connector for it is on the top right side. The out of bandwidth management port is located on a daughter card at the top. If you are using the card in a low profile system with the included low profile bracket you will lose the ability to manage the card over the network with the daughter card.




The back of the card is void of connectors or other user related features.




Here we see the SFF-8088 miniSAS data ports and the out of bandwidth management system.




Areca includes an extensive manual, drive/software disk and a low profile bracket with the ARC-1680X.
