I'm not sure this went out the first time. Sorry if it is a duplicate. /Kevin/

Subj: Fast-20 active negation current
 
The load that the single-ended SCSI bus presents to a driver is time varying.
The worst-case for assertion is a fully charged and loaded bus and for
negation
is a fully discharged and loaded bus. The characteristic impedance of a fully
loaded bus may be as low as 57% of the cable impedance or about 50 ohms. A
driver in the middle of the bus "sees" two transmission lines in parallel or
25
ohms.
 
To achieve the thresholds of VIH = 2 V and VIL = 1 V on the first transition,
there must be sufficient current available to drive the load(s) to these
levels. For negation,
 
        VO(t=0+) = (IOH(t=0+) + IOL(t=0-)) x 25 + VO(t=0-)
        2 = (IOH + 0.048) x 25 + 0.25
        IOH = 0.022 A
 
It is difficult, at best, to simulate t=0- conditions in a test circuit. The
"kick" needed from the active-negation may be verified by driving a 90 ohm
ground referenced resistor to 2 V. This requires different test circuits for
low-to-high and high-to-low driver output conformance testing.
 
Since these are ac output current requirements, you may make a case for some
sort of frequency limitations. However, I suspect it will be difficult (but
not
impossible) to come to an agreement on the requirement and how to test it.
