They can go in some types of Sun 711.  They also fit in one of the slots
of U1s.  They certainly don't fit in SS20s (disappointingly).  They do
fit in RSM-214s.  I believe they are not called sca2.  They are usually
called half-hight (as opposed to LP for low profile) to my understanding.

My 1" spud brackets fit on 1.6" drives.  You may be able to install
every other one, or you may not, I think the sca connector in the empty
spot might clash with the drive, but I'm not really certain.  It might
be work buying one drive and finding out.
