Meeting number: 826 515 680 
Meeting password: 6gbpsSAS 
Goal is for completion of the PHY spec for letter ballot of SAS 2 
following the November plenary. There will be no face-to-face due to only 
6 weeks between plenary meetings. 
Specific areas identified for needing completion:
Transmitter common mode measurements to validate the currently proposed 
chart. [Anyone with silicon to test]
Description of SSC profile allowed discontinuities. [Hernandez]
Zero length test load proposal. [Olawsky} Should be reviewed by all to 
determine if ready for inclusion.
Should the cable specification be done by common mode requirements or fall 
under channel simulation? [All]
Define the delivered signal characteristics for physical receiver testing. 
Include 0.1UI sinusoidal jitter to do the equivalent of receiver tolerance 
testing. [Bari, Jenkins, Newman, Witt]
Refine/provide status on simulation technology. [Jenkins, Newman]
Proposal for JTF calibration of JMD’s [Cox]
Anyone that can help in these specific areas is invited and encouraged to 
participate.  Also please review 07-339 and provide any input to Alvin Cox 
or the T10 reflector.
