Build your own active SCSI terminator
A direct competitor of the widely used IDE and E-IDE interfaces for hard disks, the SCSI interface still holds its own as an interesting alternative in today’s PCs. Whereas an E-IDE interface can only handle up to four disk drives, a SCSI interface easily does up to seven. Wide and Ultrawide SCSI systems even allow 16 devices to be hooked up. Provided you know and respect the ‘rules’ of the game, you will come to appreciate a SCSI system. One of these rules is the correct termination of the SCSI cables by means of ‘terminators’.
