LVD-Only SCSI Terminator Has Mode Change Delay Functions

The need for two external passive components to comply with the SCSI Parallel Interface specification is said to be eliminated with the UCC5680, a Low-Voltage Differential-only SCSI terminator. The device is claimed as the first LVD-only SCSI terminator to integrate the mode change delay functions and is suited for applications in high-end workstations, servers, RAID boxes and data warehouse systems. The device provides precise active termination for nine LVD SCSI bus lines and achieves Ultra3/Ultra160/m peak bus performance with power savings reported as greater than 50% when compared to multi-mode SCSI implementations. It also allows for easier bus management by providing symmetric delays that are not available from discrete solutions. In both a 24-pin TSSOP and 28-pin TSSOP, the SCSI terminator costs $2.15 each/10,000.
