The SATA data signal traces must be routed to achieve 100 Ohms (+/-10%) differential impedance and 60 ohms (+/-10%) single ended impedance. The signal ended impedance is required because differential signals can’t be closely coupled on PCBs and therefore single ended impedance becomes important. 60 ohms is chosen for the single ended impedance to minimize problems caused by too low an impedance.
These impedances are impacted by trace width, trace spacing, distance to reference planes, and dielectric material. Verify with a PCB design tool that the trace geometry for both data signal pairs results in as close to 100 ohms differential and 60 ohms single ended impedance traces as possible. For best accuracy, work with your PCB fabricator to ensure this impedance is met.
Table 8-19 shows the routing specifications for the SATA data signals.
