Hmmm, the schematics have the SATA-II interface. Did they not stuff the
connector and 0.01uF caps?
Also the SATA section of the schematic has this note: "Internal SATA
clock reference was confirmed on tapeout TO2.0. Optional parts have been
removed from further production runs." The schematic does not indicate
what parts are "optional". So I really don't know what this means yet.
