2.5 SCSI Bus Connection Options

2.5.2 SCSI-3 Mixed With SCSI-2 Option

This option uses the BI0318 to connect to the SCSI bus signals on the VMEbus P2.

Figure 2-3 SCSI-3 to SCSI-2 Daisy-Chain Option

This setup connects the BI0316 to a 16-bit (WIDE) bus at the front and a 8-bit bus at the rear of the module. Note that the upper byte signals must be terminated on the 16-bit to 8-bit adapter. This is achieved by the on-board terminators of the BI0318 module. These terminators are capable of terminating Single-Ended as well as Differential SCSI buses.
