This chapter describes the VAX 4000 Model 300 base system, including the
following:
•
Power-on self-tests
•
Digital Storage System Interconnect (DSSI) architecture
•
Specifications for the KA670-AA/-BA CPU and MS670-BA memory
1.1 System Overview
All VAX 4000 Model 300 base system components are housed in a BA440
enclosure, which contains a 12-slot backplane.
Each base system contains the following:
•
A KA670-AA/-BA (IAOOO-Al-B) central processing unit (CPU) module
•
From one to four MS670-BA memory modules.
The base system modules are located in the following BA440 card slots:
•
Any MS670-BA memory modules are installed in slots 1 through 4.
•
The KA670 CPU module is installed in slot 5.
The base system operates from the KA670 CPU firmware and the controls
on the console modUle. The firmware is described in Section 1.2. Base
system operation also integrates Digital Storage System Interconnect
(DSSI) technology, which is discussed in Section 1.5.

1.2 Firmware Overview
Two electrically programmable read-only memory (EPROM) chips on the
KA670 CPU module contain the firmware. This firmware consists of the
following three major programs, which perform the system power-on selftests and diagnostics:
•
A console program
•
A set of self-tests for the CPU and memory
•
A primary bootstrap program (VMB)
The console program receives control whenever the processor halts. In
a processor halt, processor control passes to the console program and
instruction execution continues. The standard VAX console functionality
is emulated whenever you execute a program in ROM.
Control passes to the firmware under any of the following conditions:
•
You power-on the system.
•
You press the Restart button.
•
You assert the Q22-bus BHALT signal by pressing the Halt button.
•
You enter a break when the Break EnablelDisable switch is set to
enable.
•
A HALT instruction is executed.
•
A system error occurs.
Base System Description
1-3
1.3 Power-On
At power-on, the console program determines the console device type and
console language, then runs the self-tests for the CPU and memory. You
choose the console language when you perform the set-up operations during
your console terminal installation procedure.
You determine the type of power-on mode by setting the Power-On Mode
switch on the CPU console module. See your VAX 4000 Dual-Host Systems
manual for the following power-on information:
•
Power-on procedures
•
Power-On Mode and Break Enable1Disable switch settings
•
Examples of successful power-on sequences
•
Boot and autoboot procedures
See the VAX 4000 '1}-oubleshooting and Diagnostics manual for examples of
problems you may encounter during power-on.
1.4 Console 1/0 Mode Overview
If you set the Break EnablelDisable switch on the console module to enable,
the console program enters Console 110 mode after the power-on self-tests
are completed successfully. The console program also enters Console 110
mode in response to any external halt condition.
CAUTION: Do not press the Restart button while the console program is
in console mode. Doing so destroys the system state and prevents normal
operation.
Console I/O mode allows you to control the system by typing commands
at the console prompt (»». You may enter these commands in either
uppercase or lowercase letters. Enter each command, then press IRetum!.
1.4.1 Control Characters in Console I/O Mode
Table 1-1 lists the keypad control characters that have special meaning in
Console I/O mode.

Table 1-1: Console 1/0 Mode Control Characters
Character
Action
IRetum I also <CR>
The carriage return ends a command line. No action is taken on
a command until after it is terminated by a carriage return. A
null line termlnated by a carriage return is treated as a valid, null
command. No action is taken, and the console prompts for input.
Carriage return is echoed as carriage return, line feed «CR><LF».
When you press 0 (rubout), the console deletes the previously typed
character. The resulting display differs, depending on whether the
console is a video or a hardcopy terminal.
~ (rubout)
For hardcopy terminals, the console echoes a backslash (\)
followed by the character being deleted. If you press additional
rubouts, the additional deleted characters are echoed. If you type a
non-rub out character, the console echoes another backslash, followed
by the character typed. The result is to echo the characters deleted,
surrounding them with backslashes. For example:
EXAMI;E0!!1 NE<CR>
The console echoes: EXAMI;E\E;\NE<CR>
The console sees the command line: EXAMINE<CR>
For video terminals, the previous character is erased and the
cursor is restored to its previous position.

The console does not delete characters past the beginning of a
command line. If you press more rub outs than there are characters
on the line, the extra rubouts are ignored. A rubout entered on a
blank line is ignored.
Toggles insertion/overstrike mode for command line editing. By
default, the console powers up to overstrike mode.
Echoes I\C<CR> and aborts processing of a command. Has no effect
as part of a binary load data stream. Clears Ictrllsi and re-enables
output stopped by Icwo I.
Moves the cursor one position to the left.
Moves the cursor to the end of the line.
Moves the cursor one position to the right.
Recalls the previous commands.
Deletes the previously typed character. Same function as !!I
(rub out), above.
Ignores transmissions to the console until you enter ICtrilO I. Echoes
1\0 when disabling output, which is not echoed when it re-enables
output. Output is re-enabled if the console prints an error message,
or if it prompts for a command from the terminal. Output is also
enabled by entering Maintenance mode: press IBreak I or enter ICtri/C I.
Resumes output to the console terminal. Not echoed.

Echoes <CR><LF>, followed by the current command line. Can be
used to improve the readability of a command line that has been
heavily edited.
Stops output to the console terminal until you enter Ictrllol. Not
echoed.
Echoes AU<CR>. Entered, but otherwise ignored if typed on an
empty line.
The console accepts Console I/O mode commands up to 80 characters long.
Longer commands produce error messages. The character count does not
include rubouts, rubbed-out characters, or the <CR> at the end of the
command.
Two or more consecutive spaces and tabs are treated as a single space.
Leading and trailing spaces and tabs are ignored. You can place command
qualifiers after the command keyword or after any symbol or number in
the command.
All numbers (addresses, data, counts) are hexadecimal, but symbolic
register names contain decimal register numbers. The hexadecimal digits
are 0 through 9 and A through F. You can use uppercase and lowercase
letters in hexadecimal numbers (A through F) and commands.
The following symbols are qualifier and argument conventions:
[] = an optional qualifier or argument
{} = a required qualifier or argument
1.4.2 Console 1/0 Mode Commands
Table 1-2 lists and describes the Console I/O mode commands. You can
display the list of commands by typing HELP at the console prompt (»».
For a complete explanation of how to use the commands, along with
information on qualifiers and arguments, refer to the KA670 CPU Technical
Manual (EK-KA670-TM).

1-12 VAX 4000 Model 300 Technical Information
1.5 Digital Storage System Interconnect (OSSI)
The KA670 CPU module contains two DSSI bus interfaces that are
dedicated to the mass storage devices in the VAX 4000 Model 300 system.
(See Figure 1-1 for the VAX 4000 Model 300 block diagram.)
Each DSSI bus interface connects to a DSSI integrated storage assembly
(lSA). An ISA is a 5.25-inch integrated storage element (lSE) that is housed
in a special mounting bracket for simplified enclosure installation and
upgrading.
Each DSSI bus has the following characteristics:
•
A 4-Mbytes-per-second bandwidth
•
Up to eight nodes (one interface and up to seven ISAs)
•
Eight data lines
•
One parity line
•
Eight control lines
DSSI architecture improves system performance as follows:
•
The DSSI bus handles all mass storage transactions.
•
Mass storage devices can act independently, since each device contains
its own controller. Several devices can work simultaneously.
The two DSSI bus interfaces support up to 16 nodes. These 16 nodes include
the 2 DSSI interfaces and 14 ISAs.
An ISA can maintain connections to more than one DSSI interface. In a
dual-host configuration in which multiple CPUs can be connected to the
DSSI bus interfaces, two VAX 4000 Model 300 systems have access to each
ISA on the DSSI busses.
For more information about dual hosting VAX 4000 Model 300 systems
and the advantages of such configurations, see the section on dual-host
capability in the VAX 4000 Model 300 Operation manual.

2.1.1 Configuration
Options must be properly configured so that the system recognizes them.
Each option in a system has a device address, commonly referred to as
a control and status register (CSR) address, and an interrupt vector that
must be set when the option is installed. Options are usually configured by
setting switches or jumpers on modules already configured at the factory
or Digital service representatives configure the option when they install it
in your system.
Self-maintenance customers can find information on setting CSR addresses
and interrupt vectors in the Microsystems Options volwne of the Entry
Systems Service kit.

Asynchronous Serial Controllers
Asynchronous serial controllers provide low-speed connections between
peripheral devices and the system. Asynchronous communications between
the system and the peripheral depends on recognition of a pattern of start
and stop bits, not on a time interval.
Synchronous Serial Controllers
Synchronous serial controllers provide high-speed connections between
systems. Communication between synchronous devices depends on time
intervals that are synchronized before transmission of data begins.
Ethernet Controllers
Ethernet controllers connect your system to an Ethernet network. With
a network connection and appropriate DECnet software, you can use all
network services.

Chapter 3
System Expansion
This chapter provides guidelines on how to expand your VAX 4000 Model
300 system.
3.1 Planning Your System Expansion
You must consider the following when you decide to expand your system:
•
Can your system accommodate additional supported options?
You determine this by filling in the worksheet (Figure 3-1) with the
options currently installed in your system and those you wish to add.
•
If your existing system cannot accommodate a particular set of
supported options, you might wish to add the R400X expander to enable
support for up to seven RF-series ISAs.
This chapter does not describe how to configure new options or how to install
them in your system. Configuring an option involves assigning a control and
status register (CSR) address and an interrupt vector. This is usually done
by means of switches or jumpers on the options themselves. Digital service
representatives configure the options when they install them. Your Digital
service representative also determines the proper placement of options
within your system, according to specific guidelines.
3.2 Completing the Configuration Worksheet
To determine. what options you can add to your system, you must list the
options currently installed and their power requirements on the VAX 4000
Model 300 Configuration Worksheet, Figure 3-I.
The worksheet is for the BA440 enclosure. All backplane slots and mass
storage devices are powered by the H7874 power supply.
System Expansion
3-1
Use the worksheet as follows:
1.
In the Module column, list all options and mass storage devices
currently installed in your system, except the controller for the tape
drive. The processor module, one memory module, and the TK70 tape
drive have already been entered.
Use the label on the cover panel of each slot to identify the module
installed in that slot.
List each RF -series ISA.
2. List the options and mass storage devices you wish to add to your
system.
3. List the controller for the TK70 tape drive last.
4. Fill in the power requirements for each module and each mass storage
device. The power requirements for the more common options are listed
in Table 3-1; refer to the option descriptions in Chapter 2 for the power
requirements of additional options.
5. Add each column and make sure the totals do not exceed the specified
limit. As long as the figures are within range, you can probably install
the new option(s).
NOTE: The worksheet is only a guide. Confirm your plan with your Digital
sales representative. While certain configurations may be possible, they may
not be recommended due to excessive loads on the system or difficulties in
arranging bus and cable access to all devices.
Table 3-1 lists the information you need for each option supported in the
BA440 enclosure.
