Wide SCSI




<hardware, standard> A variant on the SCSI-2 interface.

It uses a 16-bit bus - double the width of the original SCSI-1 - and therefore cannot be connected to a SCSI-1 bus.

It supports transfer rates up to 20 MB/s, like Fast SCSI.

There is also a SCSI-2 definition of Wide-SCSI with a 32 bit data bus.

This allows up to 40 megabytes per second but is very rarely used because it requires a large number of wires (118 wires on two connectors).

Thus Wide SCSI usually means 16 bit-wide SCSI.
