The result is that a host can issue new Write commands to a SCSI
target in faster succession than is possible with standard architecture.
For a year-by-year list, beginning with the brilliant SCSIs
of the pre-Clippers early '80s, see the accompanying box.
Begin, for example, with a SCSI
hard drive or perhaps a tape backup unit, both of which are relatively simple to install.

By providing precise active termination for 27 LVD SCSI
bus lines, the device will achieve peak bus performance, permitting the manufacture of more robust and reliable ULTRA320 and ULTRA640 systems.
SAS disk drives also provide additional system resilience via Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology (SMART) capability, optimized sequential addressing features, SCSI
protocol native data integrity and error event handling capability.
The E-Disk Ultra320 SCSI
product line is fully compatible with major platforms such as Linux, Solaris, Windows, MacOS and LynxOS, AIX, FreeBSD, HP-UX, IRIX, NetBSD, OS/2, QNX, VxWorks, SCO Unixware and Open Server, Solaris x86, and Tru64.
These early expanders were often called converters, because they converted the downstream SCSI
signaling scheme and were simply modeled in the system as a slight cable delay.

In contrast, SCSI
disk drives are designed to meet the needs of mainstream servers, workstations and RAID storage systems.
