The SCSI-2 and SCSI-3 standards recommend the use of active terminations at both ends of every cable segment in a SCSI system with a single-ended drivers and reveivers. The ST21S07A SCSI terminator, which is fully compliant with these standands, enables the designer to gain the benefits of active termination: greater immunity to voltages drop on the TERMPWR (TERMination PoWeR) line, enhanced high level noise immunity, intrinsic TERMPWR decouplig, and very low quiescent current consumption.
The ST21S07A integrates a regulator and nine precise switched 110Ω termination resistors into a monolithic IC. The ST21S07A can be electrically isolatesd from the SCSI bus without physical removal from the SCSI device.
