Fast Wide SCSI
Description: Fast Wide SCSI combines the features of Wide SCSI and Fast SCSI, so it uses 10 MHz SCSI bus speed on a 16-bit wide bus. This doubles the maximum transfer rate to 20 MB/s, the fastest bus defined under the SCSI-2 standard. This protocol is sometimes called Fast Wide SCSI-2.
Defining Standard: SCSI-2.
Special Features: None.
Bus Width: Wide (16-bit).
Signaling Method: SE or HVD.
Signaling Speed and Bus Throughput: 10 MHz bus speed; 20 MB/s.
Number of Devices Supported: 16.
Termination: For SE, either active or forced perfect termination. For HVD, HVD termination.
Cabling and Maximum Cable Length: "P" cable (68 pins). (Formerly, "A" cable plus "B" cable.)Maximum of 6m for SE, 25m for HVD.
