II. Installation
Procedures
WARNING! Computer boards and components contain very delicate Integrated
Circuit (IC) chips. To protect the computer board and other components against
damage from static electricity, you must follow some precautions.
1. Make sure that you unplug your power supply when adding or removing
expansion cards or other system components. Failure to do so may cause
severe damage to both your motherboard and expansion cards.
2. Keep all components such as the host adapter in its antistatic bag until you
are ready to install it.
3. Use a grounded wrist strap before handling computer components. If you do
not have one, touch both of your hands to a safely grounded object or to a
metal object, such as the power supply case. Hold components by the edges
and try not to touch the IC chips, leads, or circuitry.
4. Place components on a grounded antistatic pad or on the bag that came with the
component whenever the components are separated from the system.

VII. Hardware Info
VIP Connectors
VIP uses two dual row 0.1” center connectors — Connector A and Connector B.
Connector A is a 26-pin connector, which is the same as the standard Feature Connector. Connector B is a 14-pin connector consisting of the power pins, ground,
VRST#, and I2S. On the master side, Connector A is male, and Connector B is
female. This applies to either the graphics adapter card or the motherboard. Slave
modules will have the opposite mating connectors. Connector B on the slave side
must be shrouded to prevent the danger of wrong insertion. Connector A can be
configured as a standard Feature Connector, VIP, or Connector A (video) of VMI
1.4. On power up, the graphics chip (master) is configured in the standard feature
connector mode. All VIP slaves must be disabled and tri-stated on power up.
