Please review 11-352r0. This document attempts to outline how active cables
that are not aware of the protocol require the system to turn off transmitter
training if active cables are detected. If a different transmitter than the
one sending signals to the receiver is adjusting the equalization then
transmitter training has to be turned off.
If you have additional questions please contact me.

Subject: Question about Active cable and Transmitter Training
I was going through the SPL2R04 Section 126.96.36.199 SP28:SAS_TrainSEtup.
There is a statement in the State Description that the Transmitter Training
argument should be set to NO if b) There is an active cable assembly
attached to the phy.
We are trying to understand the reason behind this statement. Can you please
explain what would be the side effect of enabling transmitter training with
an active cable assembly attached to the phy?.
