SCSI: What is an Expander?

A SCSI expander is a device that allows the user to expand the capabilities of the SCSI bus for certain applications. These applications include mixing of single-ended and differential interfaces, extending cable lengths to greater distances, isolating bus segments, adding more devices than the usual 8 or 16 and dynamic reconfiguration of SCSI components.
