The ACB-3530GA Features

Full SCSI specification, ANSI x3.331-1986 compatibility
Connects to any SCSI standard host adapter
SCSI bus arbitration and disconnect/reconnect support
Overlapped disk/tape operation capability with multitasking I/O subsystems
Buffered write and immediate command completion support
Data buffering and immediate completion mode for streaming on systems that do not support SCSI bus disconnect/reconnect
QIC-24 and QIC-11 media format support. Capable of reading and writing QIC-24 and QIC-11 format tapes
16-Bit CRC on each record and SCSI bus parity. Data integrity is assured by reading the data and checking CRCimmediately after it is written. CRC is also checked on tape reads. In addition, SCSI bus parity is checked or generatedon all bus transfers.
Automatic tape defect handling. Media defects detected by the controller from read after write will result in the data being rewritten in the next sequential block.
Reserve/Release. The tape drive can be reserved by an attached host to restrict other host accesses to the data.
