Abstract

The figure illustrates an SCSI connector 3 modified to accommodate pluggable terminator resistors 2. This addresses the difficulties encountered when trying to locate the SCSI bus terminating resistors in a device of small physical size. They must be close to the SCSI connector, yet located away from other components and confined areas so as to be easily removable.
