General Specifications
   SCSI Standards      See tables at the end of this help file for definitions of several features of SCSI standards.
   Your choices are...         
   SCSI-1       SCSI-1, the original SCSI, was standardized by ANSI in 1986. Allows asynchronous data transfer rates of 1.5 MB/sec and synchronous transfer rates to a maximum of 5 MB/sec. It has an 8-bit SCSI port that uses Single-ended open-collector drivers. Uses a 50-pin connector. SCSI-1 is an obsolete standard after the development of SCSI-2. 
   Wide SCSI       This term is generally applied to WIDE (16-bit) SCSI with FAST data transfer rate of up to 10 Mbps 
   Fast SCSI       Standard defined in SCSI-2.  Increases the maximum data rate from 5 Mbps for NARROW (8-bit) SCSI to 10 Mbps. 
   Wide Fast SCSI       This term is generally applied to WIDE (16-bit) SCSI with FAST data transfer rate of up to 20 Mbps 
   Ultra SCSI       This is also known as Fast-20. It doubles the FAST SCSI data rate to up to 20 Mbps for the 8-bit bus 
   Wide Ultra SCSI       Defines a maximum transfer data rate up to 40 Mbps for the WIDE (16-bit) SCSI. 
   SCSI-2       SCSI-2 has significant improvements over SCSI-1 including faster data transfer rates, better connectors, wider bus path, better reliability via synchronous negotiation and parity checking. SCSI-2 has a data transfer rate from 5 MB/sec to 10 Mb/sec. This speed change is called Fast SCSI-2. Also, SCSI-2 provides the option to double the bus from 8 bits to 16 bits. This change is known as Wide SCSI. By combining the Fast SCSI-2 with the Wide SCSI bus a maximum data rate of 20 MB/sec can be achieved. 
   Ultra2 SCSI       This is also known as Fast-40.  It doubles the Ultra SCSI data rate to up to 40 Mbps for the 8-bit bus. 
   Wide Ultra2 SCSI       Defines a maximum data rate of 80 Mbps for the WIDE (16-bit) SCSI.   
   SCSI-3       The SCSI-3 specification allows for faster transfer rate, more devices on a single chain (a maximum of 32), and also it incorporates serial connections in addition to the traditional parallel interconnect of SCSI-2. The serial interconnect of SCSI-3 incorporates three technologies: Serial Storage Architecture (SSA), Fibre Channel, and IEEE P1394. The serial transfer mode allows faster data rates, more devices per bus, simple connectors, and longer cables. 
   Ultra3 SCSI (Ultra160)       This is also known as Fast-80 or Ultra-160. It doubles the Ultra2 SCSI data rate to up to 160 Mbps for the 16-bit bus. 
   Ultra320 SCSI       Defines a maximum data rate of 320 Mbps for the WIDE (16-bit) SCSI. 
   Ultra640 SCSI       Defines a maximum data rate of 640 Mbps for the WIDE (16-bit) SCSI. 
   Fibre Channel       A high-speed serial protocol for channels and networks that uses links of twisted-pair, coaxial cable or fiber optic cable. SCSI can use the Fibre Channel Arbitrary Loop topology (FC-AL). 
   Serial SCSI (Firewire)       A very fast bus standard that supports data transfer rates of up to 400 Mbps Apple, which originally developed the technology, uses the trademarked name FireWire. The standards are defined in IEEE-1394. 
   Other       Other, not listed, standards.

   SCSI Terminator Class

   Internal       A passive terminator installed in some SCSI drives used before the advent of LVD. The terminators can be enabled or disabled by setting of jumpers or by inserting or removing it from a socket. 
   External       This type of terminator is connected in series with the SCSI device. It is also known as "feed-through" terminator. 
   Selectable       Can select between internal and external termination.

   SCSI Terminator Type       
   Your choices are...         
   Passive       It is the simplest and least reliable terminator. It uses simple resistor networks to terminate the bus. Used for single ended SCSI-1 short systems with few connected devices. It is driven by the term power line on the bus. The equivalent impedance i around 132 ohms. Because typical impedances of most cables is between 85 and 110 ohms, this type of terminator does not provide good impedance matching. 
   Active       Generally used for single-ended SCSI-2 devices. It is compatible with passive terminators. This type of terminator consists of resistor networks driven by voltage regulators inside the terminator. The voltage regulator generates a termination voltage from the Term Power (the TERMPWR pin) and keeps the terminator impedance to stay at around 110 ohms. This value provides good impedance matching form the bus. 
   Active Negation       In single-ended SCSI buses, asserting a signal requires to drive the signal voltage low. De-asserting (negation) the signal means to drive the signal high. In active negation terminators the signal is drive high by the terminator, allowing a faster bus speed. 
   Differential Terminator (HVD)       Also called HVD terminator or High Voltage Differential Terminator is a type of terminator used in differential systems only. It consists of a 330/150/330 resistor network combination. These types of terminators are not compatible with single ended or LVD systems or devices. 
   Low-Voltage Differential (LVD)       A special form of active termination defined in the SPI-2 (SCSI Parallel Interface 2) and SPI-3 (SCSI Parallel Interface 3) documents of the SCSI-3 specifications. This type of terminator allows faster speed for Ultra2 and Ultra3 SCSI. 
   Multimode (LVD / SE)       Terminator used in LVD systems that use multimode transceivers. Depending on the voltage level that appears at the DIFFSENSE pin of the cable, the transceiver automatically chooses between LVD and single ended (SE) when the devices are powered up. Active terminators in this type of SCSI are able to respond to the DIFFSENSE line. If the DIFFSENSE voltage is < 0.7 V, the terminator will be in the single ended mode; if this voltage is between 0.9 V and 1.9 V the terminator will be in the LVD mode. 
   Forced Perfect Terminator (FPT)       This is a single-ended termination method utilizing diodes clamps to compensate for the impedance mismatch between the SCSI cable and the device connected to the bus. The diode clamps force the termination to the correct voltage. This termination is not recognized by the SCSI specifications. 
   High Byte Terminator       High byte is the upper data byte on a wide bus (bits 8 to 15). High byte termination is used when the SCSI bus terminates in multiple locations. 
   Other       Active De-Assertion Regulated (ADR), Signal Line Increased Current Kicker (SLICK), Feed-through, and others not listed.
