Cheetah 9LP FC General Description
CheetahTM 9LP FC drives are random access storage devices designed to support the Fibre Channel Arbitrated Loop (FC-AL) and SCSI Fibre Channel Protocol. ST39102FC drives are classified as intelligent peripherals and provide level 2 conformance (highest level) with the ANSI SCSI-1 standard.

You can view the Fibre Channel interface as a transport vehicle for the supported command set (ST39102FC drives use the SCSI command set). In fact, the Fibre Channel interface is unaware of the content or meaning of the information being transported. It simply packs the SCSI commands in frames, transports them to the appropriate devices, and provides error checking to ensure that the information reaches its destination accurately

Cheetah 9LP FC drives have the following standard features:

  • Integrated dual port FC-AL controller
  • Concurrent dual port transfers
  • Support for FC arbitrated loop and private and public loop attachment
  • Differential copper FC drivers and receivers
  • Downloadable firmware using the FC-AL interface
  • Drive selection ID and configuration options are set on the FC-AL backpanel or through interface commands. Jumpers are not used on the drive
  • Fibre Channel worldwide name uniquely identifies the drive and each port
  • User-selectable logical block size (512 to 4,096 bytes per logical block)
  • Selectable frame sizes from 128 to 2,112 bytes
  • Industry standard 3.5-inch low profile form factor dimensions
  • Programmable logical block reallocation scheme
  • Flawed logical block reallocation at format time
  • Programmable auto write and read reallocation
  • Reed-Solomon error correction code
  • Sealed head and disc assembly (HDA)
  • No preventive maintenance or adjustments required
  • Dedicated head landing zone
  • Automatic shipping lock
  • Embedded Grey Code track address to eliminate seek errors
  • Self-diagnostics performed at power on
  • 1:1 interleave
  • Zone bit recording (ZBR)
  • Vertical, horizontal, or top down mounting
  • Dynamic spindle brake
  • 1,024 Kbyte data buffer
  • Embedded servo design
  • Supports SCSI enclosure services via interface connector
  • 128-deep task set (queue)
  • Supports up to 32 initiators
  • Reallocation of defects on command (Post Format)
  • Fibre Channel interface transports SCSI protocol
  • Supports SCSI Enclosure Services through the interface connector


  • Programmable multi-segmentable cache buffer
  • 106 Mbytes/sec maximum instantaneous data transfers per port
  • 10,016 RPM spindle; average latency = 2.99 msec
  • Command queuing of up to 128 commands
  • Background processing of queue
  • Supports start and stop commands
  • Adaptive seek velocity; improved seek performance


  • 1,000,000 hour MTBF
  • LSI circuitry
  • Balanced low mass rotary voice coil actuator
  • Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T.)
  • Dithering


This drive is compatible with any server that accepts 3.5inx1.0in Fibre Channel Drive.
