SCSI specifications
  • SCSI defines many different modes of operation, including several different data transfer modes and cable length limits.
  • The most common modes are shown below.
  • Additional information can be found in IBM Redbooks Web site.
Mode Bandwidth Frequency Max transfer rate Max cable length
SCSI 8-bit 5 MHz 5 MBps 6 meters
Fast SCSI 8-bit 10 MHz 10 MBps 3 meters
Fast/Wide SCSI 16-bit 10 MHz 20 MBps 3 meters
Ultra SCSI 8-bit 20 MHz 20 MBps 1.5 meters
Wide Ultra SCSI 16-bit 20 MHz 40 MBps 1.5 meters
Ultra2 SCSI 8-bit 40 MHz 40 MBps 12 meters (LVDS)
Fast/Wide Ultra2 SCSI 16-bit 40 MHz 80 MBps 12 meters (LVDS)

Note: The Max Cable Length refers to the length of the SCSI cable without the use of a SCSI repeater and using the LVDS interface for Ultra2 and Wide Ultra2 with multiple devices on the bus.
