Chapter 3 Functional Description
3.1 Introduction
This manual provides basic information for the operation and maintenance of the Series 3000-2xxxx VXI
Modules.
3.2 General Description
The Series 3000-2xx is a collection of standard VXI modules that have a variety of configurations of RF
Switches. Consult the Configuration List at the back of the manual to see our present standard ( COTS )
products.
Our present standard offering of RF Switches is 1x6 and SPDT, 26.5GHz, Non-Terminated and 1x6 and
SPDT, 18.0 GHz, Terminated. Other switch units such as 1x8, Transfer switches and bandwidths up to 40
GHz can also be accommodated.
One of the unique features of the Series 3000-2xx RF Modules is that the RF Switches can be removed
and replaced from the front of the unit. This allows quick replacement for maintenance or reconfiguration without requiring the complete removal of the VXI Module.
Another feature is that all VXI RF Modules are Configurable. This means that for any particular module
you can have as many or as few RF Switches as you want, in any arrangement , for your unique
application.
While the Configuration List shows the products that presently exist in our inventory, custom
configurations can easily be developed since changes would primarily involve the Front Panel. The
internal electronic circuits and VXI interface would remain the same. Any device that can be operated by
a programmed bit and mounted on the front panel ( such as Optical Switches) can be accommodated.
Consult with the factory if you have particular needs.

Chapter 4 Controls and Indicators
The following controls and indicators are provided to select and display the functions of the ASCOR
3000-2xxxx Module’s operating environment.
4.1 VXI Logical Address
The Logical Address Switch is dual circular switches, D1 and D2 which are located at the rear of the
module. The address can be set to any value between 1 and 255 (decimal) or 1 and FF (hexadecimal),
(address 0 is reserved for the resource manager). However, the Module fully supports Dynamic
Configuration as defined in Section F of the VXI specification, address 255 (FF) should be selected only if
the Resource Manager also supports Dynamic Configuration.
4.2 LEDs
The following LEDs are visible at the Module’s front panel to indicate the
status of the module’s operation:
4.2.1 “BUS” LED
This green color LED is normally off and will flash on when the module is addressed by the system.
4.2.2 “PWR” LED
This red color LED is normally on when the Module is Powered up.

Chapter 5 Internal Settings
The following items are inside the module and can be reached by removing the side cover.
5.1 Fuse
The ASCOR VXI 3000-2xxxx uses a 10 Amp fuse in the +5 Volt line and is located on
the Mother Board (MB) assembly.
5.2 VXIbus Interrupt Level Selection
The VXIbus interrupt level is set with three bits in the “3Eh” register.
See the section on “A16 ADDRESS SPACE REGISTER DESCRIPTION”.
The interrupt level is factory set to “no interrupt”.

Chapter 8 Register Map
Programming of the Model 3000-2xx is very straight forward. The module is organized into eight sixteen
bit registers. Each register supports 16 coil drivers in 16 BIT Mode or two 16 bit registers support 32 coil
drivers in 32 BIT Mode.
For example, the lower eight bits ( bits 0-7 ) of the first register control the first switch SW1.
The upper eight bits ( 8-15 ) controls the second switch SW2.
The lower eight bits ( bits 0-7 ) of the second register controls SW3.
The upper eight bits ( 8-15 ) controls SW4.
This configuration is carried through the complete module.
