In the SP27:SAS_Settings state there is no information as to what the SP
transmitter should transmit after the Phy Capabilities Bits are transmitted
and before SNTT expires. The Phy Capabilities Bits transmitted message is
received from the SP transmitter into SP27 in the state machine figure but
there is not text description in the state description that uses that
The requirement as shown in section SNW-3 is to transmit D.C.
idle for the remainder of SNTT. This changes to transmit OOB idle for the
remainder of SNTT as a result of 08-439r3 being accepted.
I will add the following words to SP27 in SPL r2 as editorial as it will add
no new technical requirements to SPL:
After this state receives a Phy Capabilities Bits Transmitter message this
state shall transmit OOB idle.
If anyone has objections or would like different wording let me know by
Bye for now,
