Port 2
2.1.1 InfiniBand Interface
The ConnectX device is compliant with the InfiniBand Architecture Specification, Release 1.2.1. It has
compliant 4X InfiniBandports, with four Tx/Rx pairs of SerDes. HCA adapter cards (listed in
Table 3) based on this device provide access to its ports by means of QSFP connectorsconnectors.
2.1.2
PCI Express Interface
The ConnectX-adapter cards support PCI Express 2.0 (1.1 compatible) through an x8 edge connector. The device can be either a master initiating the PCI Express bus operations or a slave
responding to PCI bus operations.

Mellanox Technologies
Rev 1.5
2.1.3 LED Assignment
The board has I/O LEDs located on the I/O panel- 2 LEDs per port. The green LED, when lit, indicates that the driver is running and a valid physical connection between nodes exists. If the green
LED is blinking, it indicates a problem with the physical link. The yellow LED when lit, indicates
a valid data activity link, this is the logical link. The yellow LED lights up when the network is
discovered over the physical link. A valid data activity link without data transfer is designated by a
constant yellow LED indication. A valid data activity link with data transfer is designated by a
blinking yellow LED indication. If the LEDs are not active, either the physical link or the logical
link (or both) connections have not been established.

Installation Instructions
Read all installation instructions before connecting the equipment to the power source.
The adapter cards listed in Table 3 on page 11 are standard PCI Express cards, each with a standard x edge connector. Please consult the host machine documentation for instructions on how to
install a PCI Express card.
When more than one PCI slot is available make sure to use the PCI slot with the proper
configuration.
Any PCI slot with the proper configuration is acceptable for connection. If the card is installed in a
PCI slot with less lanes than the card requires then the adapter card will not provide the optimum
data transfer.

Cables and Modules
See www.mellanox.com => Products => Cables for certified and approved cable recommendations.
4.4.1 Cable Installation
All cables can be inserted or removed with the unit powered on. To insert a cable, press the connector into the port receptacle until the connector is firmly seated. The GREEN LED indicator will
light when the physical connection is established (that is, when the unit is powered on and a cable
is plugged into the port with the other end of the connector plugged into a functioning port). After
plugging in a cable, lock the connector using the latching mechanism particular to the cable vendor. When a logical connection is made the YELLOW LED will come on. When data is being
transferred the yellow led will blink.
32
Mellanox Technologies
Rev 1.5
When installing cables make sure that the latches engage.
Always install and remove cables by pushing or pulling the cable and connector in a
straight line with the card.
Care should be taken not to impede the air exhaust flow through the ventilation holes. Cable
lengths should be used which allow for routing horizontally around to the side of the chassis before
bending upward or downward in the rack.
To remove a cable, disengage the locks and slowly pull the connector away from the port receptacle. Both LED indicators will turn off when the cable is unseated.
Cables, especially long copper cables, can weigh a substantial amount. Make sure that
the weight of the cable is supported on its own and is not hanging from the HCA card.
4.4.1.1 Inserting a Cable into the Adapter Card
1. Support the weight of the cable before connecting the cable to the adapter card. Do this by using
a cable holder or tying the cable to the rack.
2. Determine the correct orientation of the connector to the card before inserting the connector. Do
not try and insert the connector up side down. This may damage the adapter card.
3. Insert the connector into the adapter card. Be careful to insert the connector straight into the
cage. Do not apply any torque, up or down, to the connector cage in the adapter card.
4. Make sure that the connector locks in place.
4.4.1.2 Removing a Cable from the Adapter Card
1. Pull on the latch release mechanism thereby unlatching the connector and pull the connector out
of the cage.
2. Do not apply torque to the connector when removing it from the adapter card.
3. Remove any cable supports that were used to support the cable’s weight.
