My apologies for being last minute, but I have uploaded Proposal for 6G
SAS Phy Specification (07-001r0)
<;  as I promised
during the last call.  If there's no time on the agenda, I understand,
but I have tried to orient this presentation for comparison with
Kevin's, so I want at least to let folks know it's there.

Topic: SAS-2 PHY WG 
Date: Thursday 
Time: 10:00 am, Central Standard Time 
Meeting number: 826 515 680 
Meeting password: 6gbpsSAS 
No call on 12/28. 
Agenda (more than we can cover): 
1. SAS-2 Electrical Specification Proposal 06-496 [Witt] 
a. Concentrate on page 6: Transmitter device signal characteristics. 
Avoid the de-emphasis line for this call and work on the more commonly
agreed-upon numbers. 
b. De-emphasis measurement (page 8) 
It seems that the major issue with the measurement technique is the
window location that the measurements are made. 
What if Vpk is the pk-pk voltage (wherever it is at) and Vde is a mode
value? Since the test is made on the transmitter through a zero length
load, the mode portion should not see too large of a spread. 
c. Receiver Device Signal Characteristics (page 11) 
2. 10-meter cable specification issues 
Any updates? 
3. EMI considerations for SAS-2 
Keep in mind when developing spec. 
4. Define a loss for the zero-length test load?
