I noticed that the Micro Channel SSA adapters all use the same PCB. Dan
Kalish, mouthpiece for the Micro Channel Mafia, sent me a 4-G so I could
get it right.
31H8637 BIOS Odd / 31H8636 BIOS Even. The 4-G uses the same P/N
BIOS as the 4-I. This makes me hopeful that a common ADF and drivers can be
used for all MCA SSA adapters.
Light Pipes on D4 & D5
Both LEDs are normal LEDs on the PCB. There are light pipes to
transmit the light to the outside.
Each pair of connectors has a green light that indicates the operational
status of its related loop:
|Both SSA connectors are inactive. If disk drives or other SSA adapters
are connected to these connectors, either those disk drives or adapters
are failing, or their SSA links are not active.
|Both SSA links are active (normal operating condition)
|One port of a SSA loop interface is not operational

U17 VLSI-ARM VY86C06040
U31 Pads for AM29F040-120EC
40 MHz version of the ARM6 Application-Specific Standard Product (ASSP)
version of the new ARM processor, designed the VY86C06040, is pin-to-pin
compatible with lower clock frequency versions. It operates with a 40 MHz clock
and exhibits a peak performance of 40 MIPS and a sustainable performance of 26
MIPS at 5.
