    I am looking for a manufacturer of interface chips or chip set for realizing
    a Serial ATA solution. Preferably in one chip. Any chips or chipsets that
    would do the job will be appreciated. I am NOT looking for a converter
    module, these I have found - they sell for $18 to $25. I am looking for a
    chip or chipset. Perhaps a chip that would convert parallel ATA to serial
    ATA. Anything.

    Could it be that National's LVDS interface chips could do the job?

    Please reply to this newsgroup.
    Thank you

    the pATA to sATA chips are avaiable from several vendors. if you are a
    manufacturer should have no problems obtaining them.

    in small/sample quantity may be VERY difficult !!
    I have tried to obtain sATA phy chips for over 3 months from all possible
    vendors and have achived nothing!!! its all under NDA and pretty much
    everybody either refuses to sell or just doesnt reply at all !!

    Marvell Technology Group and another vendor, LDIC. COuld you mention any
    others you have found? I would appreciate either the names or some links.

    Thank you
