Command Based Switching (CBS) - Will not issue commands to another drive until command queue is completed for the current drive FIS Based Switching (FBS) - Host can issue and complete commands to any drives in any order Please refer animation on [Port Multiplier article in ' for more information on differences between CBS and FBS.
Host could achieve better performance in case of FBS.
Also, the devices/cables we have for SATA validation came with SATA connector (and not e SATA).
e SATA has different electrical requirements and it can support cable length of upto 2 meters.
Low grade SATA/e SATA cables do not have proper shielding and this will lead to data loss and sometimes the host will not even enumerate connected device.
There are chances of even reducing the link speed to 1.5Gbps. Our software validation team uses Foxconn and few Vega Tech cables.
Sun's prized software portfolio has continued to develop as well, with new releases of Oracle Solaris, My SQL, and the recent introduction of Java 7.
Oracle invests in innovation by designing hardware and software systems that are engineered to work together.
SATA Controller, Host, and HBA refers to the SATA controller in the TI device SATA stands for Serial ATA. All of the below synonyms refer to a modern day PATA drive, Refer Figure 2 – Parallel ATA device connectivity and Figure 3 – Serial ATA connectivity in ATA_Revision_2_6_AT Attachment Packet Interface (ATAPI) provides additional commands on top of ATA to control CD/DVD drives.
