New xSATA & ClickConnect For External Drives

SATA-IO has developed xSATA, which extends the cable length of the external SATA cable, as well as ClickConnect, an improved connection scheme. The goal is to improve the experience of external SATA, which has suffered somewhat from manufacturers simply connecting early eSATA drives with the internal cables. The first version of the eSATA spec allowed a cable length of 2 meters. The xSATA addition will extend that to 8 meters, permitting users additional flexibility in setting up their devices. The 3-Gbyte extension to the SATA spec is also being deployed; although the speed upgrade is also part of the SATA-2 specification.
