SATA and SAS Cables

Which SATA/SAS Connector is Right for Me?

  • 22pin (7pin + 15pin) SATA Combo: This is the most common type of SATA/SAS connector that is typically found in 5.25″, 3.5″, 2.5″ and a variety of 1.8″ drives and hard drives
  • 29pin SAS Combo: This is a connecting socket that is to be deployed with SAS drives. This socket is necessary in applications in which the SATA combination 22p plug does not fit SAS Drives.

  • 16pin (7pin + 9pin) Micro SATA Combo: Found on some 1.8 ” SATA disks and SSDs.
