   All signals in the control cable are single ended signals.

Pin 2 in the control cable (Head Select 2(3) is defined as Reduced
Write Current in the Seagate ST412 interface. The WREN II HH controls
write current internally, and thus the line is not needed for this
function and is terminated.

Drive Select 1-2-3-4
--------------------
These lines are used to activate a device's drivers and receivers for
up to four drives in a daisychained operation. The following
characteristics apply to the DRIVE SELECT lines:

  1.   Logical unit designation is accomplished at the time of
       installation by setting the jumper plug located on the
       baseboard assembly.

  2.   All command cable lines are gated with Drive Select. No data
       cable signal lines are gated with Drive Select.

  3.   Drive Select must remain active during any communication with
       the host controller.

  4.   When the radial select jumper is installed, the drive will be
       selected all the time.

  5.   The drive should not be selected until 1 second after DC power
       is applied. The Ready input will be valid within 500 ns
       after the drive is selected (Drive Selected true) and after the
       power on delay.

  6.   The drive will be selected within 1  s after the activation of
       Drive Select, if the power on sequence is complete. The drive
       will be the deselected within 1  s after the deactivation of
       Drive Select.

  7.   The drive will activate the Drive Selected signal within 1  s
       after receipt of Drive Select if the drive is selected. The
       drive will deactivate Drive Selected within 1  s after the
       Drive Select signal is deactivated.

  8.   Drive Select must be valid 100 ns minimum before the first step
       pulse is received and 100 ns minimum after the last step pulse
       is received.

  9.   At the completion of a write operation, Drive select must
       remain active for 1  s.

 10.   When the Drive Select line is activated, a head change will
       occur, thus requiring a delay of 5  s before a read or write
       operation can be initiated.

      UNACCEPTABLE!                                UNACCEPTABLE!

Drive Orientation
-----------------
The permissible drive mounting orientations include operation in the
horizonatal plane and in the vertical plane. Mounting with either end
down (front or rear) is not permissible. An angle of (TBD) is
acceptable for both horizontal and vertical orientations.

WREN II HH is designed, manufactured, and tested with a "Plug-in and
Play" installation philosophy. This minimizes the requirements for
highly trained personnel to integrate the WREN II HH into an OEM's
system, whetherin a factory or field environment.

Cooling
-------
Cabinet cooling must be designed by the customer so that the ambient
temperature immediately surrounding the WREN II HH will not exceed
temperature conditions.

be daisychained on the command cable. Only the drive which is
selected by the host system has its control and data signals enabled
through this common interface. View B consists of four WREN II HH
Disc Drives only. Only the last WREN II HH in the daisychain requires
a terminator resistor pack for the command cable. Terminator resistor
packs for the command cable or other drives are removed. The total
combined command cable length (from the controller to the first
drive, to the second and subsequent drives) must not be more than 20
feet (6.1 meters).

DC Cable and connector

                     AWG 28 Twisted Pair)

Interface Drivers/Receivers
---------------------------
The WREN II HH uses both single ended and balanced differential
signals on the I/O. The data signals use balanced differential
drivers and receivers. All other signals use single ended drivers and
receivers.

Single Ended Drivers/Receivers
-------------------------------
Transmitter Characteristics
The WREN II HH uses the 74F38 open collector quad-2-input driver to
transmit status to the host. This driver is capable of sinking a
current of 48 mA with a low-level output voltage of 0.4V.

Receiver Characteristics
The WREN II HH uses the 74LS14 Hex Inverter with hysteresis gate as a
line receiver. The input of each receiver is terminated in a 220/330
ohm resistor network.

Terminator Characteristics
The terminator consists of a resistor module which plugs into a
socket in the last drive in a daisychain. Each drive is furnished
with a terminator. Terminators must be removed from all except the
last drive on the cable prior to daisychain operation. The terminator
can be easily removed with tweezers or needlenose pliers. Terminator
installation will, however, require some disassembly of the drive.
An equivalent terminator must be provided in the controller on each
input signal line from the drive to the controller. Only the Command
cable resistor module is removable.

 Balanced Differential Drivers/Receivers
 ---------------------------------------
 Transmitter Characteristics
 The WREN II HH uses 75158 type balanced differential driver. Logic 1
 on the interface is defined when the "+" output is more positive than
 the "-" output.

 Receiver Characteristics
 ------------------------
 The WREN II HH uses 75157 type balanced differential receivers.
 Logic 1 on the interface is defined when the "+" input is more
 positive than the "-" input.

Terminator Requirements
-----------------------
Each differential receiver in the drive is terminated with a 100 ohm
resistor. An equivalent terminator must be provided in the controller
on each input signal line from the drive to the controller.

Digital Interface Signal Definitions
------------------------------------
The WREN II HH uses the two cable (command and data) interface for
information transfer between it and the controller/host system.
(All single ended signals are true when the interface voltage level
is less than 0.4 volts.)

Remote Motor Start Option
-------------------------
The WREN II HH will support remote start control capability via a
user specified option. This option utilizes a reserved line on the
data cable (pin number 5) to enable the motor ON routine in the
drive. If this option is not selected, Pin 05 will be open and non-
functional. If this option is installed, Pin 05 will start the
spindle concurrent with a high level.

Features

SEAGATE ST253 PRODUCT MANUAL 77738213-E

Standards
---------
The 94205-XX WREN II HH has been developed as a system
peripherals to the highest standards of design and construction. The
WREN depends upon its host equipment to provide adequate power and
environment in order to achieve optimum performance and compliance
with applicable industry and governmental regualations. Special
attention must be given in the areas of safety, power distribution,
shielding, audible noise control, and temperature regulation.

The WREN II HH is a UL Recognized component per UL478 and a CSA
Certified product per CSA C22.2, No. 154-M1983. It also meets the
requirements of DIN IEC 380/VDE 0806/8.81.

The WREN II HH, as delivered, is designed for system integration
before use. It is supplied as a Class A Computing Device per the FCC
Rules and Regulations, Part 15, Subpart J governing EMI of computing
devices. However, the WREN II HH has been tested and found to comply
with the Class B requirements of the referenced FCC Rules and
Regulations when installed in a typical commercial computing system.

The head, disc and actuator chamber (HDA) is environmentally sealed
at the factory. Air is recirculated within the HDA and passes through
a nonreplaceable filter to ensure the maintenance a contamination
free disc/actuator environment.

The WREN II HH uses a dedicated landing zone at the innermost
radius of the media thus eliminating the possibility of destroying or
degrading data by landing in the data zone.

The WREN II HH incorporates an automatic shipping look which
prevents potential damage to the heads and disks caused by movements
during shipping and handling. The shipping lock is automatically
disengaged when power is applied to the drive.

The WREN II HH decodes Track 0 location from the dedicated servo
surface thereby eliminating mechanical transducer adjustments and
related reliability concerns.

The WREN II HH uses a high performance actuator assembly
consisting of a low inertia, balanced, straight arm driven by a
by a highly efficient pancake coil assembly. This actuator mechanism
(patent pending) provides excellent performance with minimal power
dissipation.

Media Description
-----------------
The media used on the WREN has a diameter of approximately 5
inches (130 mm). The aluminum substrate is coated with lubricated
ferrous oxide which permit the heads to contact the surface when
starting and stopping.

Each data surface has total of 989 tracks and is capable of record-
ing 10,301,424 bytes of unformatted data.

Media defects are characterized as beeing either correctable or
uncorrectable as a function of the type and magnitude of the media
flaw. Various error correction codes may be implemented to correct
errors in the data read from the disk. However, the code chosen
should be consistent with Control Data media testing and
certification methods. In the WREN II HH media certification is
performed using the following standards:

            An error burst of 11 bits or less is a correctable error.

            An error burst greater than 11 bits in length is an un-
            correctable error.

Host systems using the WREN II HH should have, as a minimum, resident
capabilities to recognize and map defective tracks and perform track
reallocation routines.

At the time of shipment from the point of manufacture, the WREN II HH
recording surfaces will meet the following requirements.

       1. 989 total tracks per surface.

       2. Track 0 to be error free on each data surface.

       3. 15 defects per surface maximum.

       4. Accumulative defects not to exceed 1 per megabyte, based on
          total available unformatted drive capacity.

Driver/Receiver Characteristics
-------------------------------
Logic Level Drive Output Receiver Input
--------------------------------------------------------------------
High (false/deactivated) (0) 2.5 V; 5.25 V 2.0 V; 5.25 V
Low (true/activated) (1) 0.4 V; 0.0 V 0.5 V; 0.0 V

The difference in the voltages between input and output signals is
due to the losses in the cable.

Seek Time
---------

                               msec. max. |   8    |
                       Average msec. typ. |  28    |
                       Average msec. max. |  32    |
        Maximum Seek Time      msec. typ. |  65    |

        Latency                msec. avg. |   8.34 |
        ----------------------------------+--------+

Seek time is defined as the elapsed time from the receipt of a seek
command by the WREN II HH until the drive signals the controller that
it is ready to perform another seek, or a read/write function on the
new cylinder. Average seek time is determined by dividing the sum of
the time for all possible movements by the total number of movements.

Start/Stop Time
---------------
The WREN II HH will become ready less than 35 seconds after
application of DC power. Stop time will be less than 30 seconds after
removal of DC power.

There is no power control switch on the drive.

Spindle Speed and Latency
-------------------------
The spindle speed is 3597 0.5% r/min. The speed tolerance includes
motor performance and motor control circuit tolerances.

The average latency time is 8.34 milliseconds, based on a nominal
disc speed of 3597 r/min. The maximum latency time is 16.76 milli-
seconds based on a maximum disc speed of 3579 r/min.

Read Data Transfer Rate
-----------------------
The nominal read serial data transfer rate is 5.0 Mbits per second.

Air Cleanliness
---------------
The WREN II HH is designed to operate in a typical office environment
with minimum environmental control.

Power Sequencing
----------------
Power sequencing is not required for the WREN II HH. It protects
against inadvertent writing during power up and down. Daisychain
operation requires that power be maintained on the terminated unit to
ensure proper termination of the peripherals I/O.

Heat/Power Dissipation
----------------------
Each WREN II HH will typically dissipate 20 watts (68 BTU per hour)
of power during operation (seeking). Idle mode power dissipation is
less than 18 watts, typically.

Temperature
-----------
50*F to 122*F (10*C to 50*C) operating ambient with a maximum
gradient of 18* F (10* C) per hour. Above 1000 feet (305 metres)
altidude the maximum temperature is derated linearly to 112* F
(44*C) at 10,000 feet (3048 metres). Cabinet packaging designs must
provide ample air circulation around the WREN II HH to make sure
environmental limits are not exceeded as a result of heat transfer
from other system components. Operating ambient for specification
purposes is defined as the environment immediately surrounding the
WREN II HH. The temparature of the HDA is restricted to a maximum of
143*F (62*C) during operation.

Write Precompensation
---------------------
MFM Write Data must conform to the conventional MFM encoding rules
and must be write precompensation by 12 ns per the industry standard
MFM data write precompensation rules. Write precompensation is
recommended on all tracks; however, write precompensation must be
performed on tracks greater than Track 128.

Reliability
-----------
The following reliability specifications assume correct host/drive
operational interface has been implemented, including all interface
timings, power supply voltages, environmental conditions, and
appropriate data handling circuits in the host system.

MTBF 40,000 hours
Service Life 5 years
Preventive Maintenance None required
