General Description

Thank you for selecting the QLA22xx Fibre Channel (FC) board. The QLA22xx board is an intelligent, high-performance, DMA bus master host adapter designed for high-end systems. The intelligence and performance are derived from the ISP22xx chips, making the QLA22xx board a leading-edge host adapter. The ISP22xx combines a powerful RISC processor, a fibre protocol module (FPM) with gigabit transceivers, and a peripheral component interconnect (PCI) local bus interface in a single-chip solution. The QLA22xx board supports all FC peripherals

that support private loop direct attach (PLDA) and fabric loop attach (FLA). Installation of the QLA22xx board is quick and easy.

1.2

What is Fibre Channel?

Fibre channel technology is outlined in the SCSI-3 Fibre Channel Protocol (SCSI-FCP) standard. Fibre Channel is a high-speed data transport technology used for mass storage and networking. It connects mainframes, super computers, workstations, storage devices, and servers.

Fibre Channel supports data transfer rates of 100 Mbytes/sec on copper and optical interfaces. The QLA2200/2200L board uses a copper interface for short connections (less than 30 meters); the QLA2200F/2202F/2204F/2212F board uses a multimode optical interface for intermediate distances (less than 500 meters); the QLA2200G board uses a GBIC, which can be either a single mode or multimode optical interface for long distances (greater than 500 meters).

With increased connectivity and performance, Fibre Channel is the technology preferred and used by system designers.

Hardware Installation

2.1

Preinstallation Procedures

Before installing your QLA22xx board, take a moment to read this guide.

CAUTION! The QLA22xx board contains parts that can be damaged by electrostatic discharge (ESD). Before handling the QLA22xx board, use standard methods to discharge static electricity. Keep the QLA22xx board in the antistatic bag until you are ready to install it. Place the board on the bag when you examine or configure it. Retain the bag for future use.

2.2

What You Need for Installation

Before you install the QLA22xx board in your computer, you need the following:

A screwdriver (usually a Phillips #1)

A high-speed, serial data connector (HSSDC) cable for the QLA2200/2200L board

An optical, multimode cable with an SC-style duplex connector for the QLA2200F/2202F/2212F board

An optical mutimode cable with an LC-style duplex connector for the QLA2204F board

One of the following cables for each of the three-position point-to-point adapters on the QLA2212F board (J3 and J4; see figure 2-7):

PTP to HDDSC-AMP 636351-X

PTP to DB-9 plug-AMP 636373-X

PTP to DB-9 receptacle-AMP 636372-X

A GBIC and appropriate cable for the QLA2200G board

NOTE: QLogic does not supply cables. Contact your distributor for the appropriate cable type and length.

Figures 2-1 through 2-6 identify the QLA22xx board components referenced throughout this section.

Each QLA22xx board has a unique serial number; its location on the board is noted in figures 2-1 through 2-6. Take a minute to write down the serial number of the
