Figure 40. PCIe3 4 x8 SAS Port Adapter
Adapter FRU number
00E7167 (Designed to comply with RoHS requirement)
Connector plug part number
00FW784 (The connector plug is installed in an empty port and prevents damage to that port
whenever a cable for the adjacent port connectors is plugged-in or removed.)
I/O bus architecture
PCIe 3.0 but compatible to PCIe 2.0 or PCIe 1.0 slots.
For more information about slot priorities, maximums, and placement rules, see PCIe adapter

p9eab/p9eab_mtm_pciplacement.htm) and select the system that you are working on.
Short, low-profile but packaged for full-height installations
Specific AE1 or YE1 SAS cable features with new narrow HD connectors are used to attach the
adapter to SAS devices.
SAS device attachment requires specific cables that are provided with the subsystem or device
features that are being attached. See Serial attached SCSI cable planning.
