When referring to drive capacity, one gigabyte, or GB, equals one billion bytes and one terabyte, or TB, equals one trillion bytes. Your computer’s operating system may use a different standard of measurement and report
a lower capacity. In addition, some of the listed capacity is used for formatting and other functions, and thus will not be available for data storage. Actual quantities will vary based on various factors, including file size, file
format, features and application software. Actual data rates may vary depending on operating environment and other factors. The export or re-export of hardware or software containing encryption may be regulated by
the U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security (for more information, visit www.bis.doc.gov), and controlled for import and use outside of the U.S. Seagate reserves the right to change, without notice,
product offerings or specifications.

SSD Activity LED Indicator (Optional)
The Nytro XF1230 can support DAS Control function from the SSD module to indicate LED activity of host side.
The device includes a physical pin P11 for connecting device activity LEDs.
The signal provided to indicate activity of the device is a low-voltage and low-current driver intended for efficient
integration into current and future IC manufacturing processes. The signal is not suitable for directly driving an LED
and is first buffered using a circuit external to the device before driving an LED.
For DAS function operation, a Firmware function feature and R das are included as an option.
The DAS function firmware feature generates a Low/High toggle Activity signal input when the SSD is in a busy state
and generates a high Activity signal input when the SSD is in idle mode (Low level: GND, High level: 3.3V).
Using DAS function increases current because of the Activity LED operation.
The DAS Firmware feature is disabled and the R das is opened when the DAS function is not in use.

FCC verification
These drives are intended to be contained solely within a personal computer or similar enclosure (not attached as an
external device). As such, each drive is considered to be a subassembly even when it is individually marketed to the
customer. As a subassembly, no Federal Communications Commission verification or certification of the device is
required.
Seagate has tested this device in enclosures as described above to ensure that the total assembly (enclosure, disk
drive, motherboard, power supply, etc.) does comply with the limits for a Class B computing device, pursuant to
Subpart J, Part 15 of the FCC rules. Operation with noncertified assemblies is likely to result in interference to radio
and television reception.

Safety, Standards, and Compliance
This equipment is designed to provide reasonable protection against such interference in a residential installation.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does
cause interference to radio or television, which can be determined by turning the equipment on and off, users are
encouraged to try one or more of the following corrective measures:

Reorient the receiving antenna.

Move the device to one side or the other of the radio or TV.

Move the device farther away from the radio or TV.

Plug the computer into a different outlet so that the receiver and computer are on different branch outlets.
If necessary, users should consult a dealer or an experienced radio/television technician for additional suggestions.
Users may find helpful the following booklet prepared by the Federal Communications Commission: How to Identify
and Resolve Radio-Television Interference Problems. This booklet is available from the Superintendent of Documents,
