Overview

IBM Serial I/O Adapters are intelligent, high-speed (up to 230.4 kbps on each port) Multiport Boards providing high performance serial I/O solutions for PCI bus systems. All port interfaces are standard RS-232 with full modem control and voltage surge protection on every pin.

IBM Serial I/O Adapters appear to the system host processor as memory. That is, they are memory mapped devices. Each Adapter is automatically mapped into system memory at the time of device driver installation. The device driver soft-configures all adapters each time the system is initialized (booted). See the Software Reference Manuals located on the CD ROM for detailed Device Driver information.`

The IBM Serial I/O Adapter (see Figure 1 below) occupies a single PCI slot in the host computer and provides the intelligent functions to "off-load" the CPU serial communications processing tasks.

Installation

Note: Please refer to the user manual that came with your personal computer for detailed installation instructions.

Use the following procedure to install your Serial I/O Adapter Card:

1.Set the host computer system power switch to OFF and disconnect the power cord.

2.Locate a free PCI expansion slot.

3.Insert and secure the board firmly into the expansion slot.

4.Connect the Host SSP-16 (37L1476) cable between the SST16P board and the Connector Panel (see Figure 1).

5.Replace the power cord and turn the host computer system ON.

Software Installation

Refer to the Quick Start Card that came with the CD ROM for detailed instructions on loading the Software Driver

Plug and Play

Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) system architecture has a design feature termed Plug and Play. This feature automatically detects, identifies and configures the currently installed devices each time the system is booted. Therefore, whenever an adapter card is installed (or removed) in a PCI system, the card is recognized and configured immediately upon restart.

Connector Panels

IBM Serial I/O Connector Panels (CP) provide sixteen RS-232 interfaces. There are two types of CPs available from IBM as shown in Figure 2. The CP-16 DB has sixteen male DTE connectors (Figure 3). The CP-16 RJ has sixteen 10-wire female RJ-45 connectors (Figure 4).

Product Warranty

The following warranty information applies to products purchased in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. For warranty terms and conditions for products purchased in other countries, see the enclosed Warranty insert, or contact your IBM reseller or IBM marketing representative. International Business Machines Corporation Armonk, New York, 10504

Statement of Limited Warranty

The warranties provided by IBM in this Statement of Limited Warranty apply only to Machines you originally purchase for your use, and not for resale, from IBM or your reseller. The term “Machine” means an IBM machine, its features, conversions, upgrades, elements, or accessories, or any combination of them.

Unless IBM specifies otherwise, the following warranties apply only in the country where you acquire the Machine. If you have any questions, contact IBM or your reseller.

Production Status

Each Machine is manufactured from new parts, or new and used parts. In some cases, the Machine may not be new and may have been previously installed. Regardless of the Machine’s production status, IBM’s warranty terms apply.

The IBM Warranty for Machines

IBM warrants that each Machine

1)is free from defects in materials and workmanship and

2)conforms to IBM’s Official Published Specifications.

The warranty period for a Machine is a specified, fixed period commencing on its Date of Installation. The date on your receipt is the Date of Installation, unless IBM or your reseller informs you otherwise. During the warranty period IBM or your reseller, if authorized by IBM, will provide warranty service under the type of service designated for the Machine and will manage and install engineering changes that apply to the Machine.

For IBM or your reseller to provide warranty service for a feature, conversion, or upgrade, IBM or your reseller may require that the Machine on which it is installed be:

IBM Serial I/O SST-16P Installation Guide

560155_A.p65

10

11/25/98, 6:56 PM

1)for certain Machines, the designated, serial-numbered Machine and

2)at an engineering-change level compatible with the feature, conversion, or upgrade.

Many of these transactions involve the removal of parts and their return to IBM.

You represent that all removed parts are genuine and unaltered. A part that replaces a removed part will assume the warranty service status of the replaced part.

If a Machine does not function as warranted during the warranty period, IBM or your reseller will repair it or replace it with one that is at least functionally equivalent, without charge. The replacement may not be new, but will be in good working order. If IBM or your reseller is unable to repair or replace the Machine, you may return it to your place of purchase and your money will be refunded.

If you transfer a Machine to another user, warranty service is available to that user for the remainder of the warranty period. You should give your proof of purchase and this Statement to that user. However, for Machines which have a life-time warranty, this warranty is not transferable.

Warranty Service

To obtain warranty service for the Machine, you should contact your reseller or call IBM.

In the United States call IBM at

1-800-426-7378

In Canada, call IBM at

1-800-426-7378

You may be required to present proof of purchase

IBM or your reseller will provide certain types of repair and exchange service, either at your location or at IBM’s or your reseller’s service center, to restore a Machine to good working order.

When a type of service involves the exchange of a Machine or part, the item IBM or your reseller replaces becomes its property and the replacement becomes yours.

You represent that all removed items are genuine and unaltered. The replacement may not be new, but will be in good working order and at

IBM Serial I/O SST-16P Installation Guide

11

560155_A.p65

11

11/25/98, 6:56 PM

least functionally equivalent to the item replaced. The replacement assumes the warranty service status of the replaced item. Before IBM or your reseller exchanges a Machine or part, you agree to remove all features, parts, options, alterations, and attachments not under warranty service. You also agree to ensure that the Machine is free of any legal obligations or restrictions that prevent its exchange.

You agree to:

1.obtain authorization from the owner to have IBM or your reseller service a Machine that you do not own; and

2.where applicable, before service is provided —

a)follow the problem determination, problem analysis, and service request procedures that IBM or your reseller provide,

b)secure all programs, data, and funds contained in a Machine, and

c)inform IBM or your reseller of changes in a Machine’s location.

IBM is responsible for loss of, or damage to, your Machine while it is 1) in IBM’s possession or 2) in transit in those cases where IBM is responsible for the transportation charges.

Extent of Warranty

IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of a Machine.

The warranties may be voided by misuse, accident, modification, unsuitable physical or operating environment, improper maintenance by you, removal or alteration of Machine or parts identification labels, or failure caused by a product for which IBM is not responsible.

THESE WARRANTIES REPLACE ALL OTHER WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THESE WARRANTIES GIVE YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS AND YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS WHICH VARY FROM JURISDICTION TO JURISDICTION. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN THAT EVENT SUCH WARRANTIES ARE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE WARRANTY PERIOD. NO WARRANTIES APPLY AFTER THAT PERIOD.

1.damages for bodily injury (including death) and damage to real property and tangible personal property; and

2.the amount of any other actual direct damages or loss, up to the greater of U.S. $100,000 or the charges (if recurring, 12 months’ charges apply) for the Machine that is the subject of the claim.

1)THIRD-PARTY CLAIMS AGAINST YOU FOR LOSSES OR DAMAGES (OTHER THAN THOSE UNDER THE FIRST ITEM LISTED ABOVE);

2)LOSS OF, OR DAMAGE TO, YOUR RECORDS OR DATA;
