Title (EN) HARDWARE ORIENTED TARGET-SIDE NATIVE COMMAND QUEUING TAG MANAGEMENT
(FR) GESTION D'ETIQUETTE DE MISE EN FILE D'ATTENTE DE COMMANDE NATIVE COTE CIBLE A ORIENTATION MATERIEL
Abstract:
(EN) Methods and apparatus for target-side SATA NCQ tag management are disclosed. In one aspect, an apparatus may include a status memory and a status manager circuit in communication with the status memory. The status memory may store status information for each of a plurality of commands that have been queued according to Native Command Queuing (NCQ). The status information may indicate whether or not each of the commands has been completed. The status manager circuit may generate and provide a status signal based on the status information stored in the status memory. Systems including such an apparatus and other components, such as hard disks, are also disclosed.
(FR) L'invention concerne des procédés et des appareils pour la gestion d'étiquette SATA NCQ côté cible. Dans un aspect, un appareil peut comporter une mémoire d'état et un circuit de gestionnaire d'état en communication avec ladite mémoire. Cette mémoire d'état peut stocker des informations d'états pour chaque commande parmi une pluralité de commandes qui ont été mises en file d'attente, selon la mise en file d'attente de commande native. Les informations d'état peuvent indiquer si chacune des commandes a été ou non complétée. Ledit circuit de gestionnaire d'état peut engendrer et fournir un signal d'état reposant sur les informations d'état stockées dans la mémoire d'état. Ladite invention a aussi pour objet des systèmes comprenant un tel appareil et d'autres composants, tels que des disques durs.
