Note: If FAST SCSI transfer rates are used, then the active
termination options must be used. If the transfer rates are 5.0
MBytes/sec and below, either method of termination can be used.
Although active and passive terminated devices can be installed on the
same bus, both ends of the cable should be terminated in the same
manner, either both active or both passive.
Note: If your application requires no terminators, remove the
terminators from the circuit board. Merely removing the terminator
power source selection jumper does not disconnect the terminator
resistors from the circuit.
