According to StorCase one of the main features of SAF-TE is that one board accommodates up to four channels - this enables customers to implement the board without having to sacrifice more than one SCSI ID
blazing fast throughput without the headache of SCSI ID
A Fast-Wide SCSI-2 can support up to 15 devices because the adapter requires one SCSI ID
. SCSI-2 also introduced differential signaling methods: High Voltage Differential (HVD) and Low Voltage Differential (LVD).
The standard method of arbitration for parallel SCSI is that the highest SCSI ID
on the bus always wins arbitration.
The converter does not consume a SCSI ID
and is completely transparent to the hardware, software, and the operator.
In addition, there are pinouts for assigning the SCSI ID
, powering the drive, and some control pins.
