Customer FAQ

Q 1 .   Does this card support USB Attached SCSI Protocol (UASP)?
Answer: Yes, PUSB31P2A supports UASP. It is compliant with USB Attached SCSI Protocol Specification 1.0.
Q 2 .   Does each port on the PUSB31P2A have a dedicated controller or is it shared bandwidth?
Answer: It’s shared bandwidth.
Q 3 .   Is this compatible with a Mac? OSX 10.11 (El Capitan)
Answer:

It doesn’t work with Mac OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) because OS X 10.11 built-in driver does not support XHCI 1.1.

Q 4 .   Is this compatible with Mac OSX 10.12 Sierra?
Answer:

Yes, the adapter works with Mac OS X 10.12, and previous versions from 10.9 to 10.10. It does NOT work with OS X 10.11 because the built-in drivers exclude support for XHCI 1.1.

Q 5 .   What is the SATA power connector for? Does it require to be connected?
Answer:

The 15-pin SATA power connection is optional. It depends on the USB devices/applications whether to get the SATA power connected to PC power supply. Each USB port can provide up to 5V/2A power. If full loaded each USB port, it requires at least 2 (ports) * 10W (5V*2A) = 20W power. Per PCI Express specification, the power supplied from PCIe bus to a 4-lane/low profile card is 10W (max). Therefore, it requires additional power source such as SATA power from PC power supply.
