Serial Storage Architecture


Serial Storage Architecture
   Abbreviated SSA. A high-performance serial interface, originally developed by IBM, used to connect peripherals, such as scanners, disk drives, optical disks, and printers, to workstations or servers. A typical SSA interface has two ports with a total bandwidth of 80Mbps and can manage two 20Mbps transmissions simultaneously, one in each direction. The shielded four-wire cable is configured as two pairs, and the maximum cable length is 25 meters (82 feet).
   SSA is also specified as a physical layer serial interface in SCSI-3.
