3.3 SCSI Bus Termination

3.3.3 Mixing Buses Having Different Widths

When buses of dissimilar width are adapted to one another, the DATA BUS signals from the wider of the two buses that end at the adapter should be terminated at the adapter.

When the adapter is the BI0318, termination is provided by the termination resistors on this board. Be sure to enable the appropriate (Single-Ended or Differential) set of terminators. See also the section "SCSI-3 Mixed With SCSI-2 Option".

When a SCSI-3 cable is connected to the front of the BI0316 which has to be connected to a 8-bit device, the following products are available to provide proper termination.
