SCSI Parallel Interconnect - 3 (SPI-3)
Washington D.C., April 1998 - NCITS (National Committee for Information Technology Standards) announces approval of this new project being developed within Technical Committee, T10, , I/O Interface - Lower Level. The reference number for this project is 1302-D.
The SPI-3 project will define a unified physical and protocol layer for parallel SCSI, while maintaining a high degree of compatibility with the current SPI-2 draft standard. Candidates for inclusion are:
a) increase the maximum data rate to at least 80 mega-transfers per second.
b) reduce the existing protocol overhead.
c) address power management and voltage reduction issues.
d) provide other capabilities which fit within the general application scope of the this project that may be proposed during the development phase by the participants in the project.
Inquiries regarding this project [project 1302-D] or other SCSI projects should be sent to the Chairman of T10, Mr. John Lohmeyer, Symbios Logic, 4420 Arrowswest Drive, Colorado Springs, CO 80907-3444. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The next meeting of T10 is May 4-8, 1998, Colorado Springs, CO. All organizations and individuals who are materially or directly affected are invited to participate.
