Subject: WebEx meeting invitation: 24G SAS Plugfest 4Q18 Call for Interest - January 3, 2018


Thank you to those companies who completed our 24G SAS Plugfest survey in late October.  While the SCSI Trade Association cannot reveal all of the details and results of that survey (as results are to remain anonymous), we can share the following:

  *   There were 16 total survey responses from 14 different companies.
  *   11 of the companies that responded are STA members, and 3 are non-members.
  *   All companies responded that they’d be likely or very likely to participate in a 24G SAS plugfest.
  *   10 companies responded they would be willing to participate in a plugfest as early as either 3Q18 or 4Q18, with other respondents preferring 2Q19.

Based on the above information, we’d like to gauge your interest in a 24G SAS plugfest in 4Q18, with the following stipulations:

  *   Any such plugfest in 4Q18 would most likely not include the full complement of ecosystem vendors that are typical of a “normal” SAS plugfest
  *   Testing would be primarily focused on signal integrity; link up at 22.5G, 12G, and 6G (including SATA); transmitter training; cable/connector testing and verification; and features such as Active PHY Transmitter Adjustment (APTA), FEC, fairness, etc.
  *   Extensive I/O testing, large builds, etc, will NOT be a focus for a 4Q18 plugfest.
  *   A “normal” 24G SAS plugfest would likely follow in approximately 2Q19 with a wider array of companies and ecosystem components.

We’ll be hosting a brief Call For Interest on Wednesday, January 3 at 10:00am PST / 1:00pm EST to review this information and answer any questions you might have regarding a 4Q18 plugfest.  Webex and dial-in info are below.
