Hi. Is it possible to add driver for SIL3132 pci-e SATA2 controller in the future release of AmigaOS and u-boot? Best Regards.

Unfortunately the 3132 IC is very different from the 3112/3114/3512 series so it would require a lot of work. So it depends on whether there's enough of a need for it and any of the driver developpers has the time to do this.

An AmigaOS 4.x SII3132 driver may be a good long term target as a privately funded project.(A-eon and Acube could combine resources)
The 2 newer motherboards ready for shipping or announced will have from 0 to 2 onboard SATA ports and 1 to 3 PCIEx1 slots.
Project 3 to 5 years into the future and the probable availability of pci based sata cards .
Of course if there is a USB3.0 driver for AmigaOS 4.x then it would change the dynamics .
