Serial ATA Technical Errata Errata ID 060 Affected Spec Ver. Serial ATA 1.0a Corrected Spec Ver. Submission info Name Company Date Brian Dees Intel Corporation 10/25/04 Description of the specification technical flaw (add space as needed) In section 188.8.131.52.1.1 within the Serial ATA 1.0a specification, which outlines a host initiated request for entering a partial/slumber state, the sequence incorrectly specifies the number of PMREQ primitives to be sent by the host to the device in step 3. The language outlined in this sequence is inconsistent with the requirements in the link power mode state machine, states L_TPMPartial and L_TPMSlumber. The state machine clearly outlines that for this specific sequence, the PMREQ primitives shall be sent until PMACK is received back from the device in step 13. This errata removes the inconsistency in section 184.108.40.206.1.1, removing the detail that four PMREQ primitives are all that are sent by the host. Description of the correction Make the following changes to section 220.127.116.11.1.1: 3. Host link layer encodes request as PMREQ primitive and transmits it four times to the host PHY layer.
