I am studying SAS1.1 specifications.
I have some queries related to the SAS specifications
-- For how much time shall state machine wait for some transmitted
messages from transmitter, for example COMSAS transmitted?
--Will receiver be able to detect the "completion" of detected OOB signal
without detecting negation time(6.5)?
--"Address frames shall not be terminated early". What's meant by early
-- On page 27 (4.1.2) it is stated that SAS phy may use different
roles(initiator or target) in different connections. On page 119(6.6.5) it
is stated that SAS target phys should not originate a new phy reset sequence
after their first attempt. How is target/initiator device exepected to
behave if its first attemt of phy reset sequence fails?
Thanks in advance
With Warm Regards
