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).
