New Open Source Hardware board adds SATA drive connectivity to any computer with USB host


USB-SATA is board which connects to any computer with USB host and bridge it to SATA Hard disk.

The read/write speed with USB2.0 host is approx 30MB/s.

USB-SATA has USB device connector, SATA connector and power connector, when used with SATA-CABLE-SET it can drive directly SATA-HDD-2.5-500GB

It’s very convenient when you have to move large files from one computer to another you can just plug big HDD with it and use it as “giant USB Flash storage” it works faster than the USB Flash disks and can have way larger capacity.

    Can this chip forward the SMART statistics?

    That’s why OSHW should have been renamed Open Schematics. A big black chip in the middle does not make it open.

    Looks great, I’m hoping to incorporate the design into my little homebrew project, does it have documentation? I notice there’s an eeprom on the schematic but not the board on your shop?
