Serial Attached SCSI - 2 (SAS-2) revision 14 (sas2r14) is now available
on and,
incorporating proposals approved by the January 2008 T10 plenary.
This revision includes the 6 Gbps physical layer specifications.  Alvin
Cox (Seagate) led the physical WG through twenty revisions of the core
6 Gbps proposal, starting with 07-063r0 (2/2007) and ending with
07-339r9 (1/2008).
This version will undergo T10 letter ballot.  Because the letter ballot
will not complete until the end of March, the February and March WG
meetings will be covering post SAS-2 topics.  The May face-to-face WG
meetings will focus on resolving SAS-2 letter ballot comments (bumping
post SAS-2 topics if necessary).
