active termination

active termination

[¦ak·tiv ‚tər·mə′nā·shən]
(computer science)
A means of ending a chain of peripheral devices connected to a small computer system interface (SCSI) port, suitable for longer chains, where it can reduce electrical interference.

Active termination adds voltage regulators to the resistors used in passive termination, which allow more reliable and consistent termination of the bus.
Check that there is active termination on both ends of the bus and, that all other termination is disabled.
Q: We are currently using SCSI cables with active termination. Some of these cables are with twisted wires between the connectors and some of them are straighforward cables.
Active termination uses a regulator and an 110 ohm resistor; this is a better impedance match and significantly better pull up current.
Active termination provided better impedance matching, pull-up current, and bias stability for performance SCSI architectures.
