SCSI Cable - Apple, 1986 Object Reg. No: HT 13418

Summary:
Apple SCSI cable for connecting peripheral devices, includes male to female adaptor/terminator, introduced in 1986.

SCSI is pronounced 'skuzzy'.

SCSI = Small Computer System Interface.

SCSI is a parallel data transfer and control line system, which enabled what at the time was high speed data transfer between up to seven devices arranged in a daisy-chain configuration. Most importantly this allowed the high speed connection of a hard disk.

Every Macintosh from the Macintosh Plus (1986) onwards was fitted with a SCSI port until it was gradually replaced by the even faster FireWire port from 1993 onwards.

This item is part of a representative collection of hardware, software, trade literature and promotional material that documents the history of the Apple company, and its contribution to, and impact on the computer industry and society.
