Safety Information and Technical Specifications
1. Safety Guidelines
To avoid personal injury and property damage, please carefully
follow all the safety steps listed below when accessing your system
or handling the components:
ESD Safety Guidelines
Electric Static Discharge (ESD) can damage electronic components. To prevent damage to your system, it is important to handle it very carefully. The following measures
are generally sufficient to protect your equipment from ESD.
• Use a grounded wrist strap designed to prevent static discharge.
• Touch a grounded metal object before removing a component from the antistatic
bag.
• Handle the RAID card by its edges only; do not touch its components, peripheral
chips, memory modules or gold contacts.
• When handling chips or modules, avoid touching their pins.
• Put the card and peripherals back into their antistatic bags when not in use.
General Safety Guidelines
• Always disconnect power cables before installing or removing any components
from the computer, including the SAS836TQ Backplane.
• Disconnect the power cable before installing or removing any cable from the
SAS836TQ Backplane.
• Make sure that the SAS836TQ Backplane is securely and properly installed on
the motherboard to prevent damage to the system due to power shortage.
An Important Note to the User
• All images and layouts shown in this user's guide are based upon the latest
PCB Revision available at the time of publishing. The card you've received
may or may not look exactly the same as the graphics shown in this manual.

SAS836TQ Backplane User’s Guide
2. Introduction to the SAS836TQ Backplane
A. Overview
The SAS836TQ Backplane is a highly efficient, highly compatible and easy to use
SES-2 backplane that offers the most advanced functionality provided by the Serial
Attached/Serial Link Industry in a slim package. With the built-in AMI MG 9072 chip,
the SAS836TQ Backplane allows the user to configure RAID 0, RAID 1 and RAID 5,
maximizing data storage capability and data transferring reliability. Additionally, the
SAS836TQ supports SATA up to 3Gbps and SAS up to 3Gbps with *SES-2 (SCSI
Enclosure Services-2) capabilities, providing complete Serial Attached Services and
Serial Link Solutions to the market. (*Refer to the section below.)
B. Backplane Features
The SAS836TQ Backplane supports the following features when it is installed on a
motherboard that has an onboard SAS controller:
1.
Compatible with SATA drives
2.
Supporting SAS drives with a transfer rate of 3Gbps
3.
Supporting I2C Interface to communicate with SAS/SATA Host Bus Adaptors
(HBA)
4.
Minimizing the need for cables and connectors, uncluttering server space, and
providing a trouble-free installation environment for the user
5.
Supporting SES-2 (SCSI Enclosure Services-2) protocol, providing the following
features:
•
Drive activity and drive failure indication for each drive slot
•
Overheat/drive failure alarm via a buzzer installed on the backplane
•
An overheat/drive failure LED Indicator built in
•
Temperature Monitoring via a 2 wire (I2C) temperature sensor in the
MG 9072 chip

The AMI MG 9072 allows the system to use a set of pre-defined SES commands
to monitor the status of disk drives and provide disk drive information to the user
through LED indicators and alarms/buzzers. (*Note: This function is available only
when a RAID controller with a RAID set is present and enabled. Please refer to
