Review of items from last call
1. Test illustrations/descriptions [Felton]
RTTL figure shows that there is trace between the connector and the 
measurement point.
The Molex fixture has 2” of micro strip traces on each side.
Annex B may mention the trace existence with regards to measurement. Since 
the traces are included in the S-parameter file, Galen and Mickey will 
work on including the information in the explanation file associated with 
the s-parameter postings and determine if a general figure can be included 
in Annex B (or elsewhere) in the standard as informative.
Use a consistent format for graphs and provide equations. Jenkins and Witt 
have supplied the figures. The table entries may be sufficient to provide 
the “equations” for the editor (Elliott) to draw in his preferred format.
Alvin to look at “repeating pattern” usage.
Mickey and Alvin to review references to figures.
Alvin to talk to STA about adding a strong statement regarding 
compatibility with SATA at 6Gbps. Fitzpatrick will support as needed.
2. Receiver test delivered signal [Newman, Hessen-Schmidt, Witt, Jenkins] 
3. Cable specification update [Olawsky, Fromm, Wingard] 
4. Common mode voltage limit [Jenkins + anyone who can help]

5. StatEye updates [Newman] 
6. Appendix material for JTF tuning [Cox]
