ESATA connectors are the devices that are used to connect the eSATA application from single to multiple disks most frequently in external storage Medias. These connectors are added to the previously designed d product to provide the portability feature and to enhance the product values .Latest mother boards have built in ESATA connectors in them. Manufacturers are concentrating to provide eSATA connectors in as many devices as they can .But there are some issues that must be considered while installing the ESATA connectors in nay of the device to allow them to connect to the external storage disks.
- The foremost thing that is to be handled is to manage electro static discharge when plugging the connector to the broad
- FCC regulations in compliance with the electromagnetic interferences limits.
- Reliability management in frequently plugin and plug out activities by the users.
- Selection of appropriate cable according to the ESATA connectors.
Selection ESATA cable.
Selection of eSATA able for the connectors is not negligible task. It’s necessary to consider the significance of both eSATA n connectors. Both of them should meet the SATA IO requirements to produce the best combination for the desired output.
ESATA drives connection
The is an obvious difference between eh drives supporting the ESATA connectors .these connectors are compatible with the SATA hard drives for both 3.5 inch large server computer system s and for 2.5 inches disks in small computers, no typical wiring and brackets are required for connecting them/.ESATA cable can be connected to the female port of the mother broad with the help of the special device known as ESATA connectors. These connectors keeps rest of the circuit’s firm and unharmed when external data port is connected to the motherboard. They can be plugged into controllers too such as SAS controllers and can also communicate with the SAS disks. The most common example can be the data connectors in optical high density devices which provide complete connection ease too.
- For connecting the external device the maximum length of the connectors can be increased to 2 meters
- Insertion allowed maximum 10 to 4500 mega hertz
- Rise time maximum allowed 35 ps to 150 ps
- Skew intra pairing 20 ps
Types of the connectors
There are four types of the connectors that are used to connect the eternal devices for various purposes
- Right angle mount surface
- Right angle mount surface with reverse pin out
- Vertical mount surface
- Vertical through hole
While selecting the ESATA connectors with right angle surface type specifications, the most important thing to be considered is to check the pins for the integrated circuits that are provided for assigning the path with the connectors. If these wire are not connected properly or any of the one is broken. ESATA connector will not work. Typical reverse configuration is also providing wit the second type to adjust the pin out to prevent the tracing by cross signals that occurs on the signal board. Another major difference that must be kept in mind while selecting the connector is that the port difference. Both right angle mount and right angle reverse mount have different port size and location. This thing is important to avoid wrong installation.
While implementing the connections wit esata connectors to avoid any unusual power loss or circuit collapse. Shielding provide cover to the eternal body of etc oonctro that protects the connectors form external interruptions and sparks over the connections.
Discontinuities of the signals for connector impedance should be checked. This would provide high speed with consistent service with the connectors. Before implementing the connection compliance specification of cable and connectors must be checked.
