Cheap ways to set SATA staggered spin-up?

Recommended Posts

I have some Seagate 7200.9 drives that implement SATA staggered spin-up, depending on the state of power pin 11 (float = spin up when the controller says to, ground = spin up immediately). Is there a simple cable or some other inexpensive way to float this pin and cause this behavior on the drive side? I would like to use this feature without a hotplug backplane.
