While some motherboard manufacturers offer an SCSI host adapter that is already integrated into a PC motherboard, it should be noted however, it is more advisable to identify the SCSI host adapter as a separate component to facilitate easy replacement in case there is a need for one. The rising global market in areas of digital computing escalated the needs for top of the line SCSI host adapters. In recent times, only two leading global manufacturers are able to sustain the delivery and production of high performance SCSI controllers. One of these companies is Adaptec, a computer hardware company that is currently leading the market in areas of SCSI production. Another multinational company is LSI logic that contributes in meeting the growing demands for SCSI in the global arena.
