Used for internal scsi-3/ultra2/lvd applications: hard drive, cd-rom,
removable storage drive. Used on the P-cable for 16-bit WIDE SCSI. 68-pin
version of the 50-pin micro-D high-density connector. Male connector used
on cables, female on device or host adapter.
SCSI 3 - Before Adaptec and later SCSITA codified the terminology, the first parallel SCSI devices
that exceeded the SCSI-2 capabilities were simply designated SCSI-3. These devices, also
known as Ultra SCSI and fast-20 SCSI, were introduced in 1992. The bus speed doubled again
to 20 MB/s for narrow (8 bit) systems and 40 MB/s for wide. The maximum cable length
stayed at 3 meters but ultra SCSI developed an undeserved reputation for extreme sensitivity
to cable length and condition (faulty cables, connectors or terminators were often to
blame for instability problems).
