Applicable standards and reference documentation
The drive has been developed as a system peripheral to the highest standards of design and construction. The
drive depends upon its host equipment to provide adequate power and environment in order to achieve optimum performance and compliance with applicable industry and governmental regulations. Special attention
must be given in the areas of safety, power distribution, shielding, audible noise control, and temperature regulation. In particular, the drive must be securely mounted in order to guarantee the specified performance characteristics. Mounting by bottom holes must meet the requirements of Section 8.4.
2.1
Standards
Medalist Pro family drives comply with Seagate standards as noted in the appropriate sections of this manual
and the Seagate SCSI Interface Product Manual , part number 77738479 (Vol. 2).
Medalist Pro disc drives are UL recognized components per UL1950, CSA certified to CSA C22.2 No. 950M89, and VDE certified to VDE 0805 and EN60950.
2.1.1
Electromagnetic compatibility
The drive, as delivered, is designed for system integration and installation into a suitable enclosure prior to use.
As such the drive is supplied as a subassembly and is not subject to Subpart B of Part 15 of the FCC Rules
and Regulations nor the Radio Interference Regulations of the Canadian Department of Communications.
The design characteristics of the drive serve to minimize radiation when installed in an enclosure that provides
reasonable shielding. As such, the drive is capable of meeting the Class B limits of the FCC Rules and Regulations of the Canadian Department of Communications when properly packaged. However, it is the user’s
responsibility to assure that the drive meets the appropriate EMI requirements in their system. Shielded I/O
cables may be required if the enclosure does not provide adequate shielding. If the I/O cables are external to
the enclosure, shielded cables should be used, with the shields grounded to the enclosure and to the host controller.
2.1.2
Electromagnetic susceptibility
As a component assembly, the drive is not required to meet any susceptibility performance requirements. It is
the responsibility of those integrating the drive within their systems to perform those tests required and design
their system to ensure that equipment operating in the same system as the drive or external to the system
does not adversely affect the performance of the drive. See Section 5.1.1 and Table 2a, DC power requirements.
2.2
Electromagnetic compliance
Seagate uses an independent laboratory to confirm compliance to the directives/standard(s) for CE Marking
and C-Tick Marking. The drive was tested in a representative system for typical applications. The selected system represents the most popular characteristics for test platforms. The system configurations include:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
486, Pentium, and PowerPC microprocessors
3.5-inch floppy disc drive
Keyboard
Monitor/display
Printer
External modem
Mouse
Although the test system with this Seagate model complies to the directives/standard(s), we cannot guarantee
that all systems will comply. The computer manufacturer or system integrator shall confirm EMC compliance
and provide CE Marking and C-Tick Marking for their product.
Electromagnetic compliance for the European Union
If this model has the CE Marking it complies with the European Union requirements of the Electromagnetic
Compatibility Directive 89/336/EEC of 03 May 1989 as amended by Directive 92/31/EEC of 28 April 1992 and
Directive 93/68/EEC of 22 July 1993.

General description
Medalist Pro drives combine magnetoresistive (MR) heads, partial response/maximum likelihood (PRML) read
channel electronics, embedded servo technology, and a SCSI-3 (Fast-20 and Fast-40) interface to provide high
performance, high capacity data storage for a variety of systems including high-end desktop systems, workstations, and entry level servers.
Fast-20 and Fast-40 (also known as Ultra SCSI and Ultra-2 SCSI) are negotiated transfer rates. These transfer
rates will occur only if your host adapter also supports Fast-20 and Fast-40 data transfer rates. This drive also
operates at SCSI-2/SCSI-3 data transfer rates for backward compatibility with non-Fast-20/Fast-40 capable
SCSI host adapters.
Table 1 lists the features that differentiate the various Medalist Pro SCSI-3 Fast-20 and Fast-40 models.

See Section 9.7.2, “Multimode—SE or LVD alternative.”
The drive records and recovers data on 3.5-inch (86 mm) non-removeable discs.
The drive supports the Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) as described in the ANSI SCSI-2 and SCSI-3
interface specifications to the extent described in this manual (volume 1), which defines the product performance characteristics of the Medalist Pro family of drives, and the SCSI Interface Product Manual (volume 2),
part number 77738479, which describes the general interface characteristics of this and other families of
Seagate SCSI drives.
The drive’s interface supports multiple initiators, disconnect/reconnect, and automatic features that relieve the
host from the necessity of knowing the physical characteristics of the targets (logical block addressing is used).
The head and disc assembly (HDA) is sealed at the factory. Air circulates within the HDA through a nonreplaceable filter to maintain a contamination-free HDA environment.
Refer to Figure 2 for an exploded view of the drive. This exploded view is for information only—never disassemble the HDA and do not attempt to service items in the sealed enclosure (heads, media, actuator, etc.) as this
requires special facilities. The drive contains no replaceable parts. Opening the HDA voids your warranty.
6
Medalist Pro Product Manual, Rev. D
Medalist Pro drives use a dedicated landing zone at the innermost radius of the media to eliminate the possibility of destroying or degrading data by landing in the data zone. The drive automatically goes to the landing
zone when power is removed.
An automatic shipping lock prevents potential damage to the heads and discs that results from movement during shipping and handling. The shipping lock automatically disengages when power is applied to the drive and
the head load process begins.
Medalist Pro drives decode track 0 location data from the servo data embedded on each surface to eliminate
mechanical transducer adjustments and related reliability concerns.
A high-performance actuator assembly with a low-inertia, balanced, patented, straight-arm design provides
excellent performance with minimal power dissipation.

Programmable drive capacity
Using the Mode Select command, the drive can change its capacity to something less than maximum. See
Table 5.2.1-13 in the SCSI Interface Product Manual (part number 77738479). Refer to the Parameter list block
descriptor, bytes 1, 2 and 3. A value of zero in bytes 1, 2 and 3 indicates that the drive shall not change the
capacity it is currently formatted to have. A number in bytes 1, 2 and 3 that is less than the maximum number of
LBAs changes the total drive capacity to the value in the block descriptor bytes 1, 2 and 3. A value greater than
the maximum number of LBAs is rounded down to the maximum capacity. Byte 0 is not used as the density
code, but as the MSB of number of LBAs.
3.7
Factory installed accessories
The drive ships with a small bag of the two jumper plug types used for the J6, J2, and J1-Aux option select
jumper headers.
3.8
Options (factory installed)
All customer requested options are incorporated during production or packaged at the manufacturing facility
before shipping. Some of the options available are:
• The capacities shown in Section 3.5. You can order other capacities by selecting a maximum LBA as shown
in Section 3.6.
• Single unit shipping pack. The drive normally ships in bulk packaging to provide maximum protection against
transit damage. Units shipped individually require additional protection as provided by the single unit shipping pack. Specify this option if you are planning to ship single units to your customers.
• ESD and physical protection is accommodated by a protective plate called SeaShield which attaches to the
PCB.

Notes for Section 4.2.
[1]
Execution time is measured from receipt of the last Byte of the Command Descriptor Block (CDB) to the
request for a Status Byte Transfer to the Initiator (excluding connect/disconnect).
[2]
Maximum times are specified over the worst case conditions of temperature, voltage margins and drive
orientation. When comparing specified access times, care should be taken to distinguish between typical
access times and maximum access times. The best comparison is obtained by system benchmark tests
conducted under identical conditions. Maximum times do not include error recovery.
[3]
Typical access times are measured under nominal conditions of temperature, voltage, and horizontal orientation as measured on a representative sample of drives.
[4]
Assumes no errors and no sector has been relocated.
[5]
Rate measured from the start of the first sector transfer to or from the host.
[6]
Assumes system ability to support the rates listed and no cable loss.

[8]
Access time = controller overhead + average seek time
Access to data = controller overhead + average seek time + latency time
4.3
Start/stop time
After DC power at nominal voltage has been applied, the drive becomes ready within 20 seconds if the Motor
Start Option is disabled (i.e. the motor starts as soon as the power has been applied). If a recoverable error
condition is detected during the start sequence, the drive executes a recovery procedure which may cause the
time to become ready to exceed 20 seconds. During spin up to ready time the drive responds to some commands over the SCSI interface in less than 3 seconds after application of power. Stop time is less than 20 seconds from removal of DC power.
If the Motor Start Option is enabled, the internal controller accepts the commands listed in the SCSI Interface
Product Manual less than 3 seconds after DC power has been applied. After the Motor Start Command has
been received the drive becomes ready for normal operations within 13 seconds typically (excluding an error
recovery procedure). The Motor Start Command can also be used to command the drive to stop the spindle
(see SCSI Interface Product Manual, part number 77738479).
There is no power control switch on the drive.
4.4
Prefetch/multi-segmented cache control
The drive provides prefetch (read look-ahead) and multi-segmented cache control algorithms that in many
cases can enhance system performance. “Cache” as used herein refers to the drive buffer storage space when
it is used in “cache” operations. To select prefetch and cache features the host sends the Mode Select command with the proper values in the applicable bytes in Mode Page 08h (see SCSI Interface Product Manual,
part number 77738479). Prefetch and cache operation are independent features from the standpoint that each
is enabled and disabled independently via the Mode Select command. However, in actual operation the
prefetch feature overlaps cache operation somewhat as is noted in Section 4.5.1 and 4.5.2.
All default cache and prefetch Mode parameter values (Mode Page 08h) for standard OEM versions of this
drive family are given in Tables 9, 10, and 11.
4.5
Cache operation
In general, 380 Kbytes of the 512 Kbytes (860.5 Kbytes of 1,024 Kbytes for “LC” and “LW” drives) of physical
buffer space in the drive can be used as storage space for cache operations. The buffer contains memory from
which data is read and to which data is written. The drive maintains a table of logical block disk medium
addresses of the data stored in each segment of the buffer. If cache operation is enabled (RCD bit = 0 in Mode
Page 08h, byte 2, bit 0. See SCSI Interface Product Manual (part number 77738479), data requested by the
host with a Read command is retrieved from the buffer (if it is there), before any disc access is initiated. If
cache operation is not enabled, the buffer (still segmented with required number of segments) is still used, but
only as circular buffer segments during disc medium read operations (disregarding Prefetch operation for the
moment). That is, the drive does not check in the buffer segments for the requested read data, but goes directly
to the medium to retrieve it. The retrieved data merely passes through some buffer segment on the way to the
12
Medalist Pro Product Manual, Rev. D
host. On a cache “miss”, all data transfers to the host are in accordance with “buffer-full” ratio rules. On a cache
“hit” the drive ignores the “buffer-full” ratio rules. See explanations associated with Mode page 02h (disconnect/
reconnect control) in the SCSI Interface Product Manual (part number 77738479).
The following is a simplified description of a read operation with cache operation enabled:
Case A - A Read command is received and the first logical block (LB) is already in cache:
1. Drive transfers to the initiator the first LB requested plus all subsequent contiguous LB’s that are already in
the cache. This data may be in multiple segments.
2. When the requested LB is reached that is not in any cache segment, the drive fetches it and any remaining
requested LBs from the disc and puts them in a segment of the cache. The drive transfers the remaining
requested LBs from the cache to the host in accordance with the disconnect/reconnect specification mentioned above.
3. If the prefetch feature is enabled, refer to Section 4.5.2 for operation from this point.
Case B - A Read command requests data, the first LB of which is not in any segment of the cache:
1. The drive fetches the requested LBs from the disc and transfers them into a segment, and then the segment to the host.
2. If the prefetch feature is enabled, refer to Section 4.5.2 for operation from this point.
4.5.1
Caching write data
Write caching is a write operation by the drive that makes use of a drive buffer storage area where the data to
be written to the medium is stored in one buffer segment.
Write caching is enabled independently from read caching. For write caching, the same buffer space and segmentation is used as set up for read functions. The buffer segmentation scheme is set up or changed independently, having nothing to do with whether or not read and write caching is enabled or disabled. When a write
command is issued, the cache is first checked to see if any logical blocks that are to be written are already
stored in the cache from a previous read or write command. If there are, the respective cache segments are
cleared. The new data is cached for subsequent Read commands.
If the number of write data logical blocks exceeds the size of the segment then being written into when the end
of the segment is reached, the data is written into the beginning of the same cache segment, overwriting the
data that was written there at the beginning of the operation. However, the drive does not overwrite data that
has not yet been written to the medium.
Tables 9, 10, and 11 show Mode default settings for the drives.
4.5.2
Prefetch operation
If the Prefetch feature is enabled, data in contiguous logical blocks on the disc immediately beyond that which
was requested by a Read command can be retrieved and stored in the buffer for immediate transfer from the
buffer to the host on subsequent Read commands that request those logical blocks (this is true even if “cache”
operation is disabled). Though the prefetch operation uses the buffer as a “cache”, finding the requested data
in the buffer is a prefetch “hit”, not a “cache” operation “hit”. Prefetch is enabled using Mode Select page 08h,
byte 12, bit 5 (Disable Read Ahead - DRA bit). DRA bit = 0 enables prefetch. Since data that is prefetched
replaces data already in some buffer segment(s), the host can limit the amount of prefetch data to optimize
system performance. The max prefetch field (bytes 8 and 9) limits the amount of prefetch. The drive does not
use the prefetch “ceiling” field (bytes 10 and 11).
Whenever prefetch (read look-ahead) is enabled (enabled by DRA = 0), it operates under the control of ARLA
(Adaptive Read Look-Ahead). If the host uses software interleave, ARLA enables prefetch of contiguous blocks
from the disc when it senses that a prefetch “hit” will likely occur, even if two consecutive read operations were
not for physically contiguous blocks of data (e.g. “software interleave”). ARLA disables prefetch when it decides
that a prefetch “hit” will not likely occur. If the host is not using software interleave, and if two sequential read
operations are not for contiguous blocks of data, ARLA disables prefetch, but as long as sequential read operations request contiguous blocks of data, ARLA keeps prefetch enabled.

Error rate specified with automatic retries and data correction with ECC enabled and all flaws reallocated.
5.1
Error rates
The error rates stated in this specification assume the following:
• The drive is operated per this specification using DC power as defined in this manual (see Section 6.2).
• The drive has been formatted with the SCSI FORMAT commands.
• Errors caused by media defects or host system failures are excluded from error rate computations.
5.1.1
Environmental interference
When evaluating systems operation under conditions of Electromagnetic Interference (EMI), the performance
of the drive within the system shall be considered acceptable if the drive does not generate an unrecoverable
condition.
An unrecoverable error, or unrecoverable condition, is defined as one that:
• Is not detected and corrected by the drive itself;
• Is not capable of being detected from the error or fault status provided through the drive or SCSI interface; or
• Is not capable of being recovered by normal drive or system recovery procedures without operator intervention.
5.1.2
Read errors
Before determination or measurement of read error rates:
• The data that is to be used for measurement of read error rates must be verified as being written correctly on
the media.
• All media defect induced errors must be excluded from error rate calculations.
5.1.3
Write errors
Write errors can occur as a result of media defects, environmental interference, or equipment malfunction.
Therefore, write errors are not predictable as a function of the number of bits passed.
If an unrecoverable write error occurs because of an equipment malfunction in the drive, the error is classified
as a failure affecting MTBF. Unrecoverable write errors are those which cannot be corrected within two
attempts at writing the record with a read verify after each attempt (excluding media defects).

5.1.4
Medalist Pro Product Manual, Rev. D
Seek errors
A seek error is defined as a failure of the drive to position the heads to the addressed track. There shall be no
more than one recoverable seek errors in 10 7 physical seek operations. After detecting an initial seek error, the
drive automatically reseeks to the addressed track up to 3 times. If a reseek is successful, the Extended Sense
reports a seek positioning error (15h), no seek complete error (02h), or track follow error (09h), and the sense
key reports a recovered error (1h). If all three reseeks fail, a seek positioning error (15h) is reported with a
Medium error (3h) or Hardware error (4h) reported in the Sense Key. This is an unrecoverable seek error. Unrecoverable seek errors are classified as failures for MTBF calculations. Refer to Section 5.1.1.2 of the SCSI
Interface Product Manual (part number 77738479) for Request Sense information. Appendix A of this manual
lists the sense keys and additional sense codes supported by the drives of this manual.
5.2
Reliability and service
You can enhance the reliability of Medalist Pro disc drives by ensuring that the drive receives adequate cooling.
Section 6.4.1 provides temperature measurements and other information that may be used to enhance the service life of the drive. Section 8.3.1 provides recommended air-flow information.
5.2.1
Mean time between failure
The production disc drive shall achieve an MTBF of 800,000 hours when operated in an environment that
ensures the case temperatures specified in Section 6.4.1 are not exceeded. Short-term excursions up to the
specification limits of the operating environment will not affect MTBF performance.
The following expression defines MTBF
Estimated power-on operating hours in the period
MTBF per measurement period
=
Number of drive failures in the period
Estimated power-on operation hours means power-up hours per disc drive times the total number of disc drives
in service. Each disc drive shall have accumulated at least nine months of operation. Data shall be calculated
on a rolling average base for a minimum period of six months.
Drive failure means any stoppage or substandard performance caused by drive malfunction.
5.2.2
Preventive maintenance
No routine scheduled preventive maintenance shall be required.
5.2.3
Service life
The drive shall have a useful service life of five years. Depot repair or replacement of major parts is permitted
during the lifetime (see Section 5.2.4).
5.2.4
Service philosophy
Special equipment is required to repair the drive HDA. In order to achieve the above service life, repairs must
be performed only at a properly equipped and staffed service and repair facility. Troubleshooting and repair of
PCBs in the field is not recommended, because of the extensive diagnostic equipment required for effective
servicing. Also, there are no spare parts available for this drive. Drive warranty is voided if the HDA is opened.
5.2.5
Service tools
No special tools are required for site installation or recommended for site maintenance. Refer to Section 5.2.4.
The depot repair philosophy of the drive precludes the necessity for special tools. Field repair of the drive is not
practical since there are no user purchasable parts in the drive.

Hot plugging Medalist Pro disc drives
The ANSI SPI-2 (T10/1142D) document defines the physical requirements for removal and insertion of SCSI
devices on the SCSI bus. Four cases are addressed. The cases are differentiated by the state of the SCSI bus
when the removal or insertion occurs.
Case 1
Case 2
Case 3
Case 4
All bus devices powered off during removal or insertion
RST signal asserted continuously during removal or insertion
Current I/O processes not allowed during insertion or removal
Current I/O process allowed during insertion or removal, except on the device being changed
Seagate Medalist Pro disc drives support four hot plugging cases. Provision shall be made by the system such
that a device being inserted makes power and ground connections prior to the connection of any device signal
contact to the bus. A device being removed shall maintain power and ground connections after the disconnection of any device signal contact from the bus (see SFF-8046, SCA-2 specification).
It is the responsibility of the systems integrator to assure that no hazards from temperature, energy, voltage, or
ESD potential are presented during the hot connect/disconnect operation.
All I/O processes for the SCSI device being inserted or removed shall be quiescent. All SCSI devices on the
bus shall have receivers that conform to the SPI-2 standard.
If the device being hot plugged uses single-ended (SE) drivers and the bus is currently operating in low voltage
differential (LVD) mode, then all I/O processes for all devices on the bus must be completed, and the bus quiesced, before attempting to hot plug. Following the insertion of the newly installed device, the SCSI host
adapter must issue a Bus Reset, followed by a synchronous transfer negotiation. Failure to perform the SCSI
Bus Reset could result in erroneous bus operations.
The SCSI bus termination and termination power source shall be external to the device being inserted or
removed.
End users should not mix devices with high voltage differential (HVD) drivers and receivers and devices with
SE, LVD, or multimode drivers and receivers on the same SCSI bus since the common mode voltages in the
HVD environment may not be controlled to safe levels for SE and LVD devices (see ANSI SPI-2).
The disc drive spindle must come to a complete stop prior to completely removing the drive from the cabinet
chassis. Use of the Stop Spindle command or partial withdrawal of the drive, enough to be disconnected from
the power source, prior to removal are methods for insuring that this requirement is met. During drive insertion,
care should be taken to avoid exceeding the limits stated in Section 6.4.4, "Shock and vibration," of this manual.
5.2.7
S.M.A.R.T.
S.M.A.R.T. is an acronym for Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology. This technology is intended
to recognize conditions that indicate imminent drive failure and is designed to provide sufficient warning of a
failure to allow you to back up the data before an actual failure occurs.
Note.
The drive’s firmware will monitor specific attributes for degradation over time but can’t predict instantaneous drive failures.
Each monitored attribute has been selected to monitor a specific set of failure conditions in the operating performance of the drive and the thresholds are optimized to minimize “false” and “failed” predictions.
Controling S.M.A.R.T.
The operating mode of S.M.A.R.T. is controlled by the DEXCPT and PERF bits on the Informational Exceptions
Control mode page (1Ch). Use the DEXCPT bit to enable or disable the S.M.A.R.T. feature. Setting the DEXCPT bit disables all S.M.A.R.T. functions. When enabled, S.M.A.R.T. collects on-line data as the drive performs
normal read and write operations. When the PERF bit is set, the drive is considered to be in “On-line Mode
Only” and will not perform off-line functions.
You can measure off-line attributes and force the drive to save the data by using the Rezero command. Forcing
S.M.A.R.T resets the timer so that the next scheduled interrupt is in two hours.
16
Medalist Pro Product Manual, Rev. D
You can interrogate the drive through the host to determine the time remaining before the next scheduled measurement and data logging process occurs. To accomplish this, issue a Log Sense command to log page 0x3E.
This allows you to control when S.M.A.R.T. interruptions occur. Forcing S.M.A.R.T. with the RTZ command
resets the timer.
Performance impact
S.M.A.R.T. attribute data is saved to the disc so that the events that caused a predictive failure can be recreated. The drive measures and saves parameters once every two hours subject to an idle period on the interface. The process of measuring off-line attribute data and saving data to the disc is uninterruptable. The
maximum on-line only (DESCPT = 0; PERF = 1) processing delay is 60 ms. The maximum fully-enabled (DEXCPT = 0, PERF = 0) processing delay is 450 ms.
Reporting control
Reporting is controlled in the Informational Exceptions Control mode page (1Ch). Subject to the reporting
method, the firmware will issue to the host an 01-5DXX sense code. The error code is preserved through bus
resets and power cycles.
Determining rate
S.M.A.R.T. monitors the rate at which errors occur and signals a predictive failure if the rate of degraded errors
increases to an unacceptable level. To determine rate, error events are logged and compared to the number of
total operations for a given attribute. The interval defines the number of operations over which to measure the
rate. The counter that keeps track of the current number of operations is referred to as the Interval Counter.
S.M.A.R.T. measures error rates. All errors for each monitored attribute are recorded. A counter keeps track of
the number of errors for the current interval. This counter is referred to as the Failure Counter.
Error rate is the number of errors per operation. The algorithm that S.M.A.R.T. uses to record rates of error is to
set thresholds for the number of errors and their interval. If the number of errors exceeds the threshold before
the interval expires, the error rate is considered to be unacceptable. If the number of errors does not exceed
the threshold before the interval expires, the error rate is considered to be acceptable. In either case, the interval and failure counters are reset and the process starts over.
Predictive failures
S.M.A.R.T. signals predictive failures when the drive is performing unacceptably for a period of time. The firmware keeps a running count of the number of times the error rate for each attribute is unacceptable. To accomplish this, a counter is incremented each time the error rate is unacceptable and decremented (not to exceed
zero) whenever the error rate is acceptable. If the counter continually increments such that it reaches the predictive threshold, a predictive failure is signaled. This counter is referred to as the Failure History Counter.
There is a separate Failure History Counter for each attribute.
5.2.8
Product warranty
Beginning on the date of shipment to customer and continuing for a period of three years, Seagate warrants
that each product (including components and subassemblies) or spare part that fails to function properly under
normal use due to defect in materials on workmanship or due to nonconformance to the applicable specifications will be repaired or replaced, at Seagate’s option and at no charge to customer, if returned by customer at
customer’s expense to Seagate’s designated facility in accordance with Seagate’s Warranty Procedure.
Seagate will pay for transporting the repair or replacement item to customer. For more detailed warranty information refer to the Standard terms and conditions of Purchase for Seagate products.

This condition occurs when the Motor Start Option is enabled and the drive has not yet received a Start
Motor command.
[5]
See Section 6.2.1 “Conducted Noise Immunity.” Specified voltage tolerance is inclusive of ripple, noise,
and transient response.
[6]
Operating condition is defined as random seek read operations with a block count of 64.
General Notes from Table 2a:
1. Minimum current loading for each supply voltage is not less than 4% of the maximum operating current
shown.
2. The +5 and +12 volt supplies shall employ separate ground returns.
3. Where power is provided to multiple drives from a common supply, careful consideration for individual drive
power requirements should be noted. Where multiple units are powered on simultaneously, the peak starting current must be available to each device.
6.2.1
Conducted noise immunity
Noise is specified as a periodic and random distribution of frequencies covering a band from DC to 10 mHz.
Maximum allowed noise values given below are peak to peak measurements and apply at the drive power connector.
+5 V =
+12 V =
150 mV pp from 0 to 100 kHz and 100 mV pp from 100 kHz to 10 MHz.
150 mV pp from 0 to 100 kHz and 100 mV pp from 100 kHz to 10 MHz.
6.2.2
Power sequencing
The drive does not require power sequencing. The drive protects against inadvertent writing during power-up
and down. Daisy-chain operation requires that power be maintained on the terminated drive to ensure proper
termination of the peripheral I/O cables. To automatically delay motor start based on the target ID (SCSI ID)
enable the Delay Motor Start option and disable the Enable Motor Start option on the J2 connector. See Section 8.1 for pin selection information. To delay the motor until the drive receives a Start Unit command, enable
the Enable Motor Start option on the J2 connector.

Power dissipation
For drives with single-ended interface circuits, typical operating random read/write power dissipation is 14.1
watts (48.1 BTUs per hour) of DC power average at nominal voltages. Typical power dissipation under idle conditions is 12.3 watts (42.0 BTUs per hour). Standby power is 4.1 watts (14.0 BTUs per hour).
For drives with low voltage differential interface circuits (LVD), typical operating random read/write power dissipation is 14.6 watts (49.8 BTUs per hour) of DC power average at nominal voltages. Typical power dissipation
under idle conditions is 13.5 watts (46.0 BTUs per hour). Standby power is 4.5 watts (15.3 BTUs per hour).
6.4
Environmental limits
Temperature and humidity values experienced by the drive must be such that condensation does not occur on
any drive part. Altitude and atmospheric pressure specifications are referenced to a standard day at 58.7°F
(14.8°C). Maximum Wet Bulb temperature is 82°F (28°C).
6.4.1
Temperature
a. Operating
The drive meets all specifications over a 41°F to 131°F (5°C to 55°C) drive ambient temperature range with
a maximum temperature gradient of 36°F (20°C) per hour. The enclosure for the drive should be designed
such that the temperatures at the locations specified in Table 3, column 1 are not exceeded. Air flow may be
needed to achieve these temperature values. Operation at case temperatures [3] above these values may
adversely affect the drives ability to meet specifications.
The MTBF specification for the drive is based on operating in an environment that ensures that the case
temperatures specified in Table 3, column 2 are not exceeded. Occasional excursions to drive ambient temperatures of 131°F (55°C) or 41°F (5°C) may occur without impact to specified MTBF. Air flow may be
needed to achieve these temperatures. Continual or sustained operation at case temperatures above these
values may degrade MTBF.
To confirm that the required cooling for the Medalist Pro electronics and HDA is provided, place the drive in
its final mechanical configuration, perform random write/read operations. After the temperatures stabilize,
measure the case temperature of the components listed in Table 3.
Operation of the drive at the maximum case temperature is intended for short time periods only. Continuous
operation at the elevated temperatures will reduce product reliability.

Shock and vibration
Shock and vibration limits specified in this document are measured directly on the drive chassis. If the drive is
installed in an enclosure to which the stated shock and/or vibration criteria is applied, resonances may occur
internally to the enclosure resulting in drive movement in excess of the stated limits. If this situation is apparent,
it may be necessary to modify the enclosure to minimize drive movement.
The limits of shock and vibration defined within this document are specified with the drive mounted by any of
the four methods shown in Figure 5, and in accordance with the restrictions of Section 8.4. Orientation of the
side nearest the LED may be up or down.
6.4.4.1
Shock
a. Operating—normal
The drive, as installed for normal operation, shall operate error free while subjected to intermittent shock not
exceeding 10 g at a maximum duration of 11 ms (half sinewave). Shock may be applied in the X, Y, or Z
axis.
b. Non-operating
The limits of non-operating shock shall apply to all conditions of handling and transportation. This includes
both isolated drives and integrated drives.
The drive subjected to nonrepetitive shock not exceeding 75 g at a maximum duration of 11 ms (half sinewave) shall not exhibit device damage or performance degradation. Shock may be applied in the X, Y, or Z
axis.
Maximum 2 msec rotary shock (half sinewave) 12,000 radians/sec2.
The drive subjected to nonrepetitive shock not exceeding 200 g at a duration of 2 msec (half sinewave)
does not exhibit device damage or performance degradation. Shock may be applied in the X, Y, or Z axis.

Defect and error management
The drive, as delivered, complies with this specification. The read error rate and specified storage capacity are
not dependent upon use of defect management routines by the host (initiator).
Defect and error management in the SCSI system involves the drive internal defect/error management and
SCSI systems error considerations (errors in communications between Initiator and the drive). Tools for use in
designing a defect/error management plan are briefly outlined in this section, with references to other sections
where further details are given.
7.1
Drive internal defects and errors
Identified defects are recorded on the drive defects list tracks (referred to as the primary or ETF defect list).
These known defects are reallocated during the initial drive format operation at the factory. (See Section
5.2.1.2, “Format Unit command” in the SCSI Interface Product Manual, part number 77738479). Data correction by ECC will be applied to recover data from additional flaws if they occur.
Details of the SCSI commands supported by the drive are described in SCSI Interface Product Manual.
7.2
SCSI systems errors
Information on the reporting of operational errors or faults across the interface is given in the SCSI Interface
Product Manual. Message Protocol System is described in the SCSI Interface Product Manual. Several of the
messages are used in the SCSI systems error management system. The Request Sense command returns
information to the host about numerous kinds of errors or faults. Appendix A of this manual lists the sense keys
and additional sense codes supported by the drives of this manual. The Receive Diagnostic Results reports
the results of diagnostic operations performed by the drive.
Status returned by the drive to the Initiator is described in the SCSI Interface Product Manual. Status reporting
plays a role in the SCSI systems error management and its use in that respect is described in sections where
the various commands are discussed.

Installation
The first thing to do when installing a drive is to set the drive ID (select) on the SCSI bus and set up certain
operating options. This is usually done by installing small shorting jumpers on the pins of connector J2 on the
PCB (or J1-Auxiliary on the “W” and “LW” models), or via the drive to host I/O signals on “WC” and “LC” models. Some users connect cables to J6 or J1-Auxiliary and perform the set-up using remote switches.
If your system is “SCAM” (SCSI Configured Auto Magically) compliant, the system assigns the drive ID over the
interface, so there is no need to be concerned about drive ID. Setting the drive ID jumpers doesn’t hurt anything, but is not necessary.
If your system is not “SCAM” compliant you need to set the drive ID using the ID jumpers.
Configure drive options
For option jumper locations and definitions refer to Figures 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, and 14. Drive default mode
parameters are not normally needed for installation. Refer to Section 9.3.2 for default mode parameters if they
are needed.
• Ensure that the SCSI ID of the drive is not the same as the host adapter. Most host adapters use SCSI ID 7.
ID 7 is the highest priority on both 8 and 16 bit data buses.
• If multiple devices are on the bus set the drive SCSI ID to one that is not presently used by other devices on
the bus.
• If the drive is the only device on the bus, attach it to the end of the SCSI bus cable. Permanently installed terminators must be enabled on the drive for “N” and “W” models using jumper plug TE if termination is not provided by the host equipment. On “WC,” “LC,” and “LW” models, external terminators must be provided by the
user, systems integrator or host equipment manufacturer.
• If the drive is attached to a bus that contains other devices, and the new drive is not attached to the end of
the bus, the Terminator Enable jumper (TE) should be removed from the new drive.
Note.
For additional information about terminator requirements, refer to Sections 9.8 and 9.9.
• Set all appropriate option jumpers for desired operation prior to power on. If jumpers are changed after
power has been applied, recycle the drive power to make the new settings effective.
• Installation instructions are provided by host system documentation or with any additionally purchased drive
installation software. If necessary see Section 10 for Seagate support services telephone numbers.
• Do not remove the manufacturer’s installed labels from the drive and do not cover with additional labels, as
the manufacturer labels contain information required when servicing the product.
Formatting
• It is not necessary to low level format this drive. The drive is shipped from the factory low level formatted in
512 byte sectors.
• High level format the drive involves assigning one or more partitions or logical drives to the drive volume.
Follow the instructions in the system manuals for the system into which the drive is to be installed.
• Systems that have Windows 95 Operating System version 950B (this has FAT 32) or later do not need to
partition the drive.

Drive ID/option select header
Figures 9 through 11 show views of the drive ID select jumper connectors. Figure 12 shows the option select
jumper connector for all models. Figure 10 shows a rear view of model drives for the purpose of showing J1auxiliary of the drive. Both J1-auxiliary and J6 have pins for selecting drive ID and for connecting the remote
LED cable. Only one or the other should be used, although using both at the same time would not damage the
drive. The notes following the figures describe the functions of the various jumper positions on the connectors
J2, J1-Auxiliary and J6. See your local drive sales representative for suggested part number. A bag containing
jumper plugs is shipped with standard OEM drives.

Notes explaining the functions of the various jumpers on jumper header connectors J2, J1-Auxiliary and
J6 are given here and in Section 8.1.2. The term “default” means as standard OEM units are configured
with a jumper on those positions when shipped from factory. “Off” means no jumper is installed; “On”
means a jumper is installed. OFF or ON underlined is factory default condition.

Drive orientation
The balanced rotary arm actuator design of the drive allows it to be mounted in any orientation. All drive performance characterization, however, has been done with the drive in horizontal (discs level) and vertical (drive on
its side) orientations, and these are the two preferred mounting orientations.
8.3
Cooling
Cabinet cooling must be designed by the customer so that the ambient temperature immediately surrounding
the drive will not exceed temperature conditions specified in Section 6.4.1, “Temperature.” Specific consideration should be given to make sure adequate air circulation is present around the printed circuit board (PCB) to
meet the requirements of Section 6.4.1, “Temperature.”
8.3.1
Air flow
The rack, cabinet, or drawer environment for the Medalist Pro drive must provide heat removal from the electronics and head and disc assembly (HDA). You should confirm that adequate heat removal is provided using
the temperature measurement guidelines described in Section 6.4.1.
Forced air flow may be required to keep temperatures at or below the specified case temperatures of Table 3,
Column 2, in which case the drive should be oriented, or air flow directed, so that the least amount of air flow
resistance is created while providing air flow to the electronics and HDA. Also, the shortest possible path
between the air inlet and exit should be chosen to minimize the travel length of air heated by the drive and
other heat sources within the rack, cabinet, or drawer environment.
If forced air is determined to be necessary, possible air-flow patterns are shown in Figure 15. The air-flow patterns are created by one or more fans, either forcing or drawing air as shown in the illustrations. Conduction,
convection, or other forced air-flow patterns are acceptable as long as the temperature measurement guidelines of Section 6.4.1 are met.

Drive mounting
Refer to Figure 5 on page 25 for an illustration of the recommended mounting orientations
When mounting the drive using the bottom holes (x-y plane in Figure 5) care must be taken to ensure that the
drive is not physically distorted due to a stiff non-flat mounting surface. The allowable mounting surface stiffness is 80 lb/in (14.0 N/mm). The following equation and paragraph define the allowable mounting surface stiffness:
F
K = --- = 80lb/in (14.0 N/mm)
x
where ‘k’ represents the mounting surface stiffness (units of lb/in or N/mm), and ‘x’ represents the out-of-plane
mounting surface distortion (units of inches or millimeters). The out-of-plane distortion (‘x’) is determined by
defining a plane with three of the four mounting points fixed and evaluating the out-of-plane deflection of the
fourth mounting point when a known force is applied to the fourth point.
Note.
8.5
Before mounting the drive in any kind of 3.5-inch to 5.25-inch adapter frame, verify with Seagate Technology that the drive can meet the shock and vibration specifications given herein while mounted in
such an adapter frame. Adapter frames that are available may not have a mechanical structure capable of mounting the drive so that it can meet the shock and vibration specifications listed in this manual.
Grounding
Signal ground (PCB) and HDA ground are connected together in the drive and cannot be separated by the
user. The equipment in which the drive is mounted is connected directly to the HDA and PCB with no electrically isolating shock mounts. If it is desired for the system chassis to not be connected to the HDA/PCB ground,
the systems integrator or user must provide a nonconductive (electrically isolating) method of mounting the
drive in the host equipment.
Increased radiated emissions may result if you do not provide the maximum surface area ground connection
between system ground and drive ground. This is the system designer’s and integrator’s responsibility.

The drive is factory formatted to 512 bytes per sector, and that is not changeable.
Tables 9, 10, and 11 show how individual bits are set and which are changeable by the host.
WARNING: A power loss during flash programming can result in firmware corruption. This usually makes
the drive inoperable.

Inquiry Vital Product data
Instead of the standard Inquiry data shown in Table 7, the initiator can request several Vital Product Data
pages by setting the Inquiry command EVPD bit to one. The SCSI Interface Manual (part number 77738479),
section 5.1.1.3.1 lists the Vital Product Data pages and describes their formats. A separate Inquiry command
must be sent to the drive for each Vital Product Data page the initiator wants the drive to send back.

Mode Sense data
The Mode Sense command provides a means for the drive to report its operating parameters to the initiator.
The drive maintains four sets of Mode parameters, Default values, Saved values, Current values and Changeable values.
Default values are hard coded in the drive firmware that is stored in flash EPROM nonvolatile memory on the
drive PCB. Default values can be changed only by downloading a complete set of new firmware into the flash
EPROM. An initiator can request and receive from the drive a list of Default values and use those in a Mode
Select command to set up new Current and Saved values, where the values are changeable.
Saved values are stored on the disk media using a Mode Select command. Only parameter values that are
allowed to be changed can be changed by this method. See “Changeable values” defined below. Parameters in
the Saved values list that are not changeable by the Mode Select command get their values from the Default
values storage.
Current values are volatile values currently being used by the drive to control its operation. A Mode Select command can be used to change these values (only those that are changeable). Originally, they are installed from
Saved or Default values after a power on reset, hard reset, or Bus Device Reset message.
Changeable values form a bit mask, stored in nonvolatile memory, that dictates which of the Current values
and Saved values can be changed by a Mode Select command. A “one” allows a change to a corresponding
bit; a “zero” allows no change. For example, in Table 9 refer to Mode page 01, in the row entitled “CHG”. These
are hex numbers representing the changeable values for Mode page 01. Note that bytes 04, 05, 06, and 07 are
not changeable, because those fields are all zeros. If some changeable code had a hex value EF, that equates
to the binary pattern 1110 1111. If there is a zero in any bit position in the field, it means that bit is not changeable. Bits 7, 6, 5, 3, 2, 1, and 0 are changeable, because those bits are all ones. Bit 4 is not changeable.
Though the drive always reports non-zero values in bytes 00 and 01, those particular bytes are never changeable.
The Changeable values list can only be changed by downloading new firmware into the flash EPROM.
On standard OEM drives the Saved values are taken from the Default values list and stored into the Saved values storage location on the media prior to shipping.
When a drive is powered up, it takes Saved values from the media and stores them to the Current values storage in volatile memory. It is not possible to change the Current values (or the saved values) with a Mode Select
command before the drive is up to speed and is “ready.” An attempt to do so results in a “Check Condition” status being returned.
Note.
Because there may be several different versions of drive control firmware in the total population of
drives in the field, the Mode Sense values given in the following tables may not exactly match those of
some drives.

SCSI interface physical description
The drive models described by this product manual support the physical interface requirements of the SCSI-3
Parallel Interface-2 (SPI-2) standards as defined in American National Standard document X3T10/1142D, and
operate compatibly at the interface with devices that only support earlier SCSI-2 and SCSI-3 standards. It
should be noted that this is only true if the systems engineering has been correctly done, and if earlier SCSI-2
and SCSI-3 devices respond in an acceptable manner (per applicable SCSI Standards) to reject newer SCSI-3
protocol extensions that they don’t support.
The family of drives in this manual supports the single-ended and low voltage differential physical interconnects
(hereafter referred to as SE and LVD, respectively) as described in the ANSI SPI-2 standard. Drive models
whose model numbers end with “N,” “W,” and “WC” implement SE drivers and receivers. Drive models whose
model numbers end with “LC” and “LW” implement driver and receiver circuits that can operate either SE or
LVD (but never HVD).
The drives typically operate on a daisy-chain interface in which other SCSI devices are also operating. Devices
on the daisy chain must all operate in the same mode, either SE or LVD, but not a mixture of these. On the
interface daisy chain, all signals are common between all devices on the chain, or bus, as it is also called. This
daisy chain of SCSI devices must be terminated at both ends with the proper impedance in order to operate
correctly. Intermediate SCSI devices shall not be terminated. In some cases, the SCSI devices at each end
have onboard termination circuits that can be enabled by installation of a jumper plug (TE) on the device.
These termination circuits receive power from either a source internal to the device, or from a line in the interface cable specifically powered for that purpose. On SE drive models “N” and “W,” terminator power source can
be selected using the TP jumpers on the option select header J2. TE is also on the option select header J2 for
models “N” and “W.” See Section 8.1 for details. Models “WC,” “LC,” and “LW” have no onboard termination circuits. Some type of external termination circuits must be provided for these drives by the end user or designers
of the equipment into which the drives will be integrated. See Standard X3T10/1142D, sections 6.4 and 6.5 for
the maximum number of devices that can successfully operate at various interface transfer rates on SE and
LVD daisy chains.
“LC” and “WC” model drives plug into PCB or bulkhead connectors in the Host. They may be connected in a
daisy-chain by the host backplane wiring or PCB circuit runs that have adequate DC current carrying capacity
to support the number of drives plugged into the PCB or bulkhead connectors. A single 80 pin I/O connector
cable cannot support the DC current needs of several drives, so no daisy chain cables beyond the bulkhead
connectors should be used. A single drive connected via a cable to a host 80 pin I/O connector is not recommended.
Table 14 shows the interface transfer rates supported by the various drive models defined in this manual.

SCSI interface cable requirements
The characteristics of cables used to connect SCSI-3 parallel interface devices are discussed in detail in section 6 of ANSI Standard X3T10/1142D. The cable characteristics that must be considered when interconnecting the drives described in this manual in a SCSI-3 parallel, daisy-chain interconnected system are:
•
•
•
•
•
characteristic impedance (see section 6.1)
propagation delay (see section 6.1)
cumulative length (see sections 6.4 and 6.5)
stub length (see sections 6.4 and 6.5)
device spacing (see sections 6.4 and 6.5)
Medalist Pro Product Manual, Rev. D
59
To minimize discontinuances and signal reflections, cables of different impedances should not be used in the
same bus. Implementations may require trade-offs in shielding effectiveness, cable length, number of loads
and spacing, transfer rates, and cost to achieve satisfactory system operation. If shielded and unshielded
cables are mixed within the same SCSI bus, the effect of impedance mismatch must be carefully considered.
Proper impedance matching is especially important in order to maintain adequate margin at FAST-20 and
FAST-40 SCSI transfer rates.
For “WC” and “LC” models:
The 80 pin connector option is intended for use on drives that plug directly into a PCB or wall/bracket mounted
connector in the host equipment. In such installations, all backplane wiring segments are subject to the electromagnetic concepts presented in Standard X3T10/1142D, section 6. For “WC” and “LC” model drives, installations with connectors on cables are not recommended.
9.6.3.1
Single-ended I/O circuits (“N” and “W” models)
The maximum total cable length allowed with drives having single-ended I/O driver and receiver circuits
depends on several factors. Table 15 lists the maximum lengths allowed for different configurations of drive
usage. These values are from the ANSI SCSI-3 Fast-20 (also called Ultra SCSI) specification X3T10/1071D.
All device I/O lines must have equal to or less than 25 pf capacitance to ground, measured at the beginning of
the stub.

with adjacent pins 0.050 inches (1.27 mm) apart. The connector is keyed by means of its shape (see Figure
21).
9.6.4.3
Mating connectors for “WC” and “LC” models
The nonshielded connector shall be an 80 conductor connector consisting of two rows of 40 contacts with adjacent contacts 0.050 inches (1.27 mm) apart. I/O connection using a cable is not recommended. The length and
size of the host equipment DC power carrying conductors from the DC power source to the host equipment 80
pin disk drive interface connector(s) should be strictly designed according to proper power transmission design
concepts. No possibility for the equipment user to attach an 80 pin cable/connector should be allowed, since
the length of the DC power carrying conductors could not be controlled and therefore could become too long
for safe power transmission to the drive. Daisy-chain 80 conductor cables should especially not be allowed,
since the power-carrying conductors on the 80 conductor interface were not intended to support a series of
drives.

ID0, then ID15 to ID8 (ID 8 very lowest).
Last drive on the daisy chain.
Open-end type 68-pin connector used. On “W” models, install terminator enable (TE) jumper plug. If “LW”
model drive is end device on the cable daisy chain, an external terminator is required (not furnished with
the drive).

See Section 9.7.1 or 9.6.4.2 for detailed electrical characteristics of these signals.
The conductor number refers to the conductor position when using 0.025-inches (0.635 mm) centerline
flat ribbon cable. Other cables types may be used to implement equivalent contact assignments.
Connector contacts are on 0.050 inches (1.27 mm) centers.
Front panel LED signal; indicates drive activity for host front panel hard drive activity indicator.
Asserted by host to enable Motor Start option (enables starting motor via SCSI bus command).
Asserted by host to enable Delayed Motor Start option (motor starts at power on or after a delay of 12 seconds times drive ID). This and [3] above are mutually exclusive options.
Binary code on A3, A2, A1 and A0 asserted by host to set up SCSI bus ID in drive.
GND provides a means for differential devices to detect the presence of a single ended device on the bus.
Signals [4] through [7] are used in place of installing jumpers and cables on option select connectors J2
and J6. See Section 8.1.1 notes.
“NC” means no connection.
The conductor number refers to the conductor position (right to left in Figure 19) when using 0.050 inches
(1.27 mm) centerline flat ribbon cable. Other cable types may be used to implement equivalent contact
assignments.
Connector contacts are on 0.100 inches (2.54 mm) centers.
8 bit devices which are connected to the 16 data bit differential I/O shall leave the following signals open:

Electrical description
“N” and “W” models use single-ended interface signals. These signals must be terminated with 110-ohm active
termination circuits at each end of the total cable. Single-ended circuits use open collector or three state drivers. These models can be configured to provide the SCSI termination.
“WC” and “LC” models use the single connection attachment (SCA) connector. This 80-pin connector is
designed to plug directly into a back panel or plane. No external cables are required. Active terminators on the
back panel must be provided by the user. This connector is not recommended where cabling is required.
“LC” and “LW” models are Multimode drives. That is, their I/O circuits can operate as either single-ended or low
voltage differential drivers/receivers (selectable using the I/O “DIFFSENS” line). They require external terminators. See Section 9.7.2 for additional information on these models.
Note.
The SCSI protocol chip drives the upper eight data and parity bits of the SCSI bus even when operating in narrow (eight bit) mode. This is normal operation for this chip. If the unused data bit signals are
connected to conductors that extend out beyond this drive’s SCSI connector, correct termination must
be provided for these unused signals at the device/system at each end of the bus onto which this drive
is connected. Termination is required to control radiated emissions and conducted noise on other SCSI
bus signals.
See ANSI Standard X3T10/1142D for detailed electrical specifications.
9.7.1
Single-ended drivers/receivers
For “N,” “W,” and “WC” models which use single-ended drivers and receivers, typical circuits are shown in Figure 23. Terminator circuits (Note [1]) are to be enabled only when the disc drive is first or last in the daisy chain.
Transmitter characteristics
Single-ended drives use an ANSI SCSI compatible open collector single-ended driver. This driver is capable of
sinking a current of 48 mA with a low level output voltage of 0.4 volt.
Medalist Pro Product Manual, Rev. D
71
Receiver characteristics
Single-ended drives use an ANSI SCSI single-ended receiver with hysteresis gate or equivalent as a line
receiver.

Part of active terminator circuits. Non-removable LSI terminators, enabled in the drive (models “N” and
“W” only) with jumper plug TE when it is first or last in the daisy chain. Interface signals levels and logical
sense at the drive I/O connector are defined as follows:
Logic level
Driver output
Receiver input
NEGATED (0)
>2.5 V: <5.25 V
>2.0 V: <5.25 V
ASSERTED (1)
<0.4 V: >0.0 V
<0.8 V: >0. 0 V
The difference in the voltages between input and output signals is due to the losses in the cable.

ANSI SCSI compatible circuits.
Total interface cable length should not exceed that specified in Section 9.6.3.1.
Source of drive terminator power is an active circuit which has an input source voltage selected by jumper
plug TP. See Figure 12. Applies to “N” and “W” models.

“LW” and “LC” models have I/O circuits that can operate either in single-ended (SE) or low voltage differential
mode (LVD). When the interface “DIFFSNS” line is between 0 V and .6 V, the drive interface circuits operate
single-ended and up to and including 20 M transfers/s (Fast-20 or Ultra-1 SCSI). When “DIFFSENS” is betwen
+0.7 V and +1.9 V, the drive interface circuits operate low voltage differential and up to and including 40 M
transfers/s or less (Fast-40 or Ultra-2 SCSI). This arrangement is not intended to allow dynamically changing
transmission modes, but rather to prevent incompatible devices from attempting to interoperate. Drives must
operate only in the mode for which the installation and interface cabling is designed. Multimode I/O circuits
used by “LC” and “LW” devices do not operate at high voltage differential levels and should never be exposed
to high voltage differential environments unless the common mode voltages in the environment are controlled
to safe levels for single-ended and low voltage differential devices (see the ANSI SPI-2 specification X3T10/
1142D).
Multimode signals
Multimode circuit SE alternative signal characteristics are the same as described in Section 9.7.1. The SE
alternative for these circuits is selected as described above. SE cables and termination must be used.
Multimode circuit LVD alternative signal characteristics are not the same as the differential signals described in
Section 9.7.2.1. The Multimode signal lines (either SE or LVD) should be terminated with 110 ohm active terminator circuits at each end of the total cable. Termination of the I/O lines must be provided for by the Host equipment designers or end users.
The SE and differential alternatives are mutually exclusive.

Differential voltage = +0.30 V minimum with common-mode voltage ranges 0.700 V = < Vcm = < 1.800 V.
(X3T10/1142D revision 13, p. 152)
*These voltages shall be measured between the output terminal and the SCSI device’s logic ground reference.
This requirement shall be met with the input voltage varying between 0.700 V and 1.8 V, with power on or off,
and with the hysteresis equaling TBD mV, minimum.
Input characteristics shall additionally conform to EIA RS-485-983.

Terminator requirements
Internal disc drive I/O termination (provided only in model “N” and “W” drives single ended I/O model drives)
consists of active circuits in an LSI module that is permanently mounted on the PCB. All single initiator/single
target (non-daisy-chain) applications require that the Initiator and disc drive be terminated. Daisy-chain applications require that only the units at each end of the daisy-chain be terminated. All other peripherals on the
chain must not be terminated. (See Figure 19).
Note.
Remove drive terminator enabling jumper TE where terminators are not required. Removal of terminator power source selection jumper TP (see Figure 7d) does not disconnect the terminator resistors
from the circuit.
It is highly recommended that ANSI SCSI-2 Standard’s Alternative 2 termination (active termination) be used
for applications with single-ended (“N” and “W” models), especially if the bus will be operated at transfer rates
above 5 Mbytes/sec. The “N” and “W” models provide on-board active termination that can be disabled by
removal of the enable jumper TE (see Figure 7d).
Note.
ACTIVE TERMINATORS ARE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR USE IN THE DAISY-CHAIN AS
DESCRIBED ABOVE. ACTIVE AND PASSIVE TERMINATORS SHOULD NOT BE MIXED ON THE
SAME SCSI BUS.
Drive models “WC,” “LW,” and “LC” do not have internal terminators available. The user, systems integrator or
host equipment manufacturer must provide a terminator arrangement external to the drive. For “LW” models,
terminator modules can be purchased that plug between the SCSI I/O cable and the drive I/O connector or on
the end of a short I/O cable stub extending past the last cable connector.
Note.
The SCSI protocol chip drives the upper eight data and parity bits of the SCSI bus even when operating in narrow (eight bit) mode. This is normal operation for this chip. If the unused data bit signals are
connected to conductors that extend out beyond this drive’s SCSI connector, correct termination must
be provided for these unused signals at the device/system at each end of the bus onto which this drive
is connected. Termination is required to control radiated emissions and conducted noise on other SCSI
bus signals.
ANSI Standard X3T10/1143D contains additional details about SCSI bus terminator and terminator power
requirements.

Medalist Pro Product Manual, Rev. D
Terminator power
“N” and “W” model drives
You can configure terminator power in four different ways. See Section 8.1 for illustrations that show how to
place jumpers enabling each of the following terminator power configurations:
1. Drive accepts terminator power through SCSI bus pins:
“N” models
Pin 26
“W” models
Pins 17, 18, 51, and 52
2. Drive supplies power to the SCSI bus.
3. Drive provides terminator power for optional internal terminator resistors using the drive’s power connector.
4. Drive provides power to its own terminators and to the SCSI bus terminator power line.
SCSI devices providing terminator power (TERMPWR) must have the following characteristics:
8-bit SCSI
V TERM = 4.25 V to 5.25 V
800 mA minimum source drive capability
1.0 A maximum
16-bit SCSI
V TERM = 4.25 V to 5.25 V
1,500 mA minimum source drive capability
3.0 A maximum
“WC” and “LC” model drives
These drives cannot furnish terminator power because no conductors in the 80-pin I/O connector are devoted
to terminator power.
“LW model drives
You can configure terminator power from the drive to the SCSI bus or have the host adaptor or other device
supply terminator power to the external terminator. See Section 8.1 for illustrations that show how to place
jumpers for this configuration.
