Dock stations sata/usb asm1153E vs asm1053E

RE: usb sata docking stations and asm1153E vs asm1053E chips.
Do any of the pluggable usb/sata docking stations use the newer asm1153E chip? What disadvantages do you see using the asm1053Easminstead of the newer 1153E?

Hi John,

Good question, thanks for asking!

We’re currently evaluating the 1153E chip, but in the near term our docks will continue to use the 1051E/1053E chips in our U3, and UASP1 docks, respectively.

In our testing thus far, the 1153-based docks have performed very similarly to our 1053-based UASP1 dock.

Thanks!
Gary
