SATA-IO Completes SATA Revision 2.5 Integrated Spec


Serial ATA International Organization (SATA-IO) announced Monday the completion of the SATA Revision 2.5 specification.

SATA Revision 2.5 is a consolidated, integrated spec that includes the 3Gb/s feature, as well as other features like Native Command Queuing (NCQ), Staggered Spin-up, Hot Plug, Port Multiplier and eSATA.

The SATA Revision 2.5 specification gives developers a single document for the most current information available on the SATA architecture. SATA-IO completed the integrated spec today and ushered it into the final ratification process required by the organization's bylaws. As SATA-IO members have early access to all specifications, it is now available within the members-only area of the SATA-IO Web site at http://sata-io.org/specifications.asp. The specification is expected to be publicly available in November.

"SATA Revision 2.5 consolidates the original spec and six advanced feature specs spanning more than five years of development. This integrated spec now comprises the full SATA feature set and represents a new milestone in the maturity and stability of the technology," said Knut Grimsrud, SATA-IO president and chairman and Intel senior principal engineer. "We are also working to ensure that products based on the SATA specification interoperate flawlessly by continuing efforts to develop the Interoperability Program."

In an effort to accelerate SATA development, SATA-IO will join member companies, Hitachi Global Storage Technologies and Maxtor, to host the fifth SATA Plugfest in Milpitas, Calif. on September 20, 2005. The organization is also finalizing plans for its formalized Interoperability Program, an extension of the current SATA Plugfest model. The upcoming Plugfest will give participants an initial look at the highlights of the future Interoperability Program.

The program is designed for SATA component vendors to show customers third-party validation support for high-quality, interoperable SATA products. Within the program, SATA-IO will identify a full set of interoperability testing criteria and plans to roll out the program in Q2'06.

Slimline Connector Specification

In parallel, SATA-IO also completed the Slimline Connector specification. This spec expands the SATA market by making it the interface of choice for laptop swap bay and associated optical drives. The new connector has been tailored to fit within the existing mechanical dimensions of these swap bays and associated optical peripherals. The Slimline Connector specification was ratified by SATA-IO and is available within the members-only area of the Web site at http://sata-io.org/specifications.asp.

The Serial ATA International Organization (SATA-IO) is the group responsible for developing, managing and driving adoption of the Serial ATA specifications. Users of the Serial ATA interface benefit from greater speed, simpler upgradeable storage devices and easier configuration.
