  SCSI - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
SCSI stands for "Small Computer System Interface", and is a standard interface and command set for transferring data between devices on both internal and external computer buses.
This change divorces SCSI's various interfaces from the command set, allowing devices that support SCSI commands to use any interface (including ones not otherwise specified by T10), and also allowing the interfaces that are defined by T10 to develop on their own terms.
SCSI devices in the same SCSI transport family are generally backward-compatible.

 SCSI
When the SCSI bus was first dreamt up, some decisions were made around the parts which were cheap and readily available, rather than to the optimum electrical characteristics of the bus.
SCSI devices shall detect the Bus Free Phase after SEL and BSY are both false for at least a bus settle delay.
SCSI devices that are capable of synchronous data transfers shall not respond to an SDTR message with a Message LI%,eiect message.

 What is SCSI? - a definition from Whatis.com - see also: skuzzy
SCSI ports continue to be built into many personal computers today and are supported by all major operating systems.
SCSI allows up to 7 or 15 devices (depending on the bus width) to be connected to a single SCSI port in daisy-chain fashion.
The latest SCSI standard is Ultra-3 (sometimes spelled "Ultra3")which increases the maximum burst rate from 80 Mbps to 160 Mbps by being able to operate at the full clock rate rather than the half-clock rate of Ultra-2.

SCSI is pronounced "scuzzy" as in, "that computer geek sure was scuzzy looking, like he/she hadn't bathed or hit the laundry for weeks!" Hey to be a true SCSI geek puts you in the "upper echelon" of computer geeks, so if bathing is not "time efficient" during your indoctrination into SCSI, so be it.
SCSI Guru status can only be achieve after posting help messages continually for at least a year in the usenet newsgroup "comp.periphs.scsi".
When a wide SCSI bus or device must connect to a narrow SCSI bus or device, care should be taken to assure the proper termination of the high data byte.

 SCSI glossary, practical definitions and terminologies for SCSI
The SCSI command and data phases are reduced from a seven to a three phase process and then further combines the status phase and message phase that occur after a data transfer.
SCSI messages are used during the command transfer to negotiate the fast and wide transfer options for the data transfer.
A result of the "intelligence" of SCSI that allows an initiator or target to disconnect from the bus while it is performing a task, such as locating some information at a specific address, and, once it has located the information, reconnect to the bus in order to complete its task.

 What is SCSI? - A Word Definition From the Webopedia Computer Dictionary
SCSI interfaces provide for faster data transmission rates (up to 80 megabytes per second) than standard serial and parallel ports.
Although SCSI is an ANSI standard, there are many variations of it, so two SCSI interfaces may be incompatible.
While SCSI has been the standard interface for Macintoshes, the iMac comes with IDE, a less expensive interface, in which the controller is integrated into the disk or CD-ROM drive.

 The Linux SCSI Generic (sg) Driver
The Linux sg driver is a upper level SCSI subsystem device driver that is used primarily to handle devices _not_ covered by the other upper level drivers: sd (disks), st (tapes) and sr (CDROMs and DVDs).
The name of the SCSI command executed is typically reflected in the name of the utility; for example: "sg_inq" sends a SCSI INQUIRY command and decodes its response.

 Introduction to SCSI
SCSI (pronounced scuzzy) stands for Small Computer System Interface and it is a bus interface used for hard drives, CD-ROMs, Scanners, and other peripherals.
SCSI comes in multiple "flavors" because of the ongoing improvement to the bus and the speed it supports.
SCSI scanners are generally faster and can handle more data then other interfaces, and SCSI CD-ROMs and CD burners are able to handle direct duplication with less chance of buffer overruns.

 SCSI help
SCSI is a hardware bus similar in function of the IDE controller supporting hard disk drives, CD-ROM drives and other peripherals.
However, unlike IDE, SCSI allows the support of up to eight devices and uses ID numbers 0 through 07, with the SCSI host adapter located on ID number 07 and boots from the ID 00.
Because SCSI devices are connected via chaining the devices together, the SCSI must properly be terminated.

 SCSI bus interface, standards and technical information
The roots of SCSI go back to 1979, when the disk drive manufacturer Shugart was looking for a new universal interface for future disk drives.
The goal of the effort was to develop an interface that supported logical block addressing rather than head/cylinder/sector, 8-bit parallel data transfer instead of analog serial and generic commands rather than a couple of control lines.
This includes the ability of devices to compete for the bus (arbitrate) and to free the bus (disconnect/reselect) temporarily during command execution.

While the PC was settling for rankly inferior alternatives, the Mac adopted SCSI as its expansion standard.
With SCSI, you can add up to seven new devices to your computer and depend on them to deal with single-interface issues by themselves.
But it requires some system overhead, slows down your computer's start-up, and demands that during installation you handle device ID administration and a process called termination that closes the SCSI circuit.
