For specific devices:
Code:
radian ("rms-200","rms-250","rms-300","rms-325","rms-350","rms-375")
Code:
adaptec "2284700-R"
More generic search:
Code:
nvram pcie
Don't buy any of these devices without looking up what protocols they use. (Many of these devices use proprietary/non standard protocols and require drivers/software that is not publicly available)

Thank you very much for your help and caution on protocols. ...I think you are right, probably a bit too esoteric for my skills;)
