  • Page 18: Shock, Vibration

    2.10.5 Shock All shock specifications assume that the drive is mounted securely with the input shock applied at the drive mounting screws. Shock may be applied in the X, Y or Z axis. Operating shock These drives comply with the performance levels specified in this document when subjected to a maximum operating shock of 250 Gs based on half-sine shock pulses of 2 msec.

  • Page 19: Acoustics, Electromagnetic Immunity

    2.11 Acoustics Drive acoustics are measured as overall A-weighted acoustic sound power levels (no pure tones). All mea- surements are consistent with ISO document 7779. Sound power measurements are taken under essentially free-field conditions over a reflecting plane. For all tests, the drive is oriented with the cover facing upward. Note.

  • Page 20: Reliability, Agency Certification, Safety Certification, Electromagnetic Compatibility

    Information Technology Equipment (ITE). Emission levels are defined by EN 55022, Class B and the immunity levels are defined by EN 55024. Seagate uses an independent laboratory to confirm compliance with the EC directives specified in the previous paragraph. Drives are tested in representative end-user systems. Although CE-marked Seagate drives comply with the directives when used in the test systems, we cannot guarantee that all systems will comply with the directives.

  • Page 21: Fcc Verification

    As a subassembly, no Federal Communications Commission verification or certification of the device is required. Seagate Technology LLC has tested this device in enclosures as described above to ensure that the total assembly (enclosure, disc drive, motherboard, power supply, etc.) does comply with the limits for a Class B computing device, pursuant to Subpart J, Part 15 of the FCC rules.

Observe the following standard handling and static-discharge precautions: Caution: •...

  • Page 24: Cable-select Option, Drive Mounting

    3.2.2 Cable-select option Computers that use cable select determine the master and slave drives by selecting or deselecting pin 28, CSEL, on the interface bus. Master and slave drives are determined by their physical position on the cable. To enable cable select, set a jumper as shown in Figure 3. Refer to your computer manual to determine whether your computer supports this option.

  • Page 25: Ata Interface, Ata Interface Signals And Connector Pins

    ATA interface These drives use the industry-standard ATA task file interface that supports 16-bit data transfers. It supports ATA programmed input/output (PIO) modes 0–4; multiword DMA modes 0–2, and Ultra DMA modes 0–5. The drive also supports the use of the IORDY signal to provide reliable high-speed data transfers. For detailed information about the ATA interface, refer to the draft of AT Attachment with Packet Interface Extension (ATA/ATAPI-6), NCITS T13 1410D, subsequently referred to as the Draft ATA-6 Standard.

    4.1.3 Set Features command This command controls the implementation of various features that the drive supports. When the drive receives this command, it sets BSY, checks the contents of the Features register, clears BSY and generates an inter- rupt. If the value in the register does not represent a feature that the drive supports, the command is aborted. Power-on default has the read look-ahead and write caching features enabled.
