INTRODUCTION
General
The CoreBuilder 7000HD Switch Engine 32MB Memory Upgrade Kit
(3C37041) increases the ATM switching capacity, measured in calls,
by a factor of four to five. This upgrade is available in conjunction
with the CoreBuilder 7000 family software version 4.0, and replaces
the existing 16MB memory included on the switch board.
Installation of the memory upgrade is simple, and no other
modifications are required. Software version 4.0 automatically
recognizes the larger memory, and immediately utilizes it for
additional call capacity. Included with this kit is an ESD wrist strap
to prevent damage to the SIMM and to the switch from electrostatic
emmisions.
Installation
Upgrade KIt
In order to help you, 3Com supplies all the tools necessary for the
upgrade in the installation upgrade kit. The installation upgrade kit
supplied with the 32MB SIMM contains the following items (see
Figure 1-1):

Safety
Precautions
Installation Upgrade Kit
Before working with any component in the CoreBuilder 7000
System, read and adhere to the following safety precautions.
ESD Safety Information
Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) can damage components on the system
module. ESD, which occurs when the module or a component is
improperly handled, can cause complete or intermittent failures.
CAUTION: To prevent ESD-related damage:
Always wear the ESD wrist strap supplied, ensuring that the strap is
firmly secured to your wrist. The other end should be connected to a
grounded surface Connect the clip on the end of the wrist strap to a
grounding point on an anti-static table or to a grounded distribution
rack.
Keep the 32MB Memory SIMM in its antistatic shielded bag until you
are ready to install it.
When working with CoreBuilder 7000 components, always place the
component on the antistatic bag that it was shipped in.
Safety Precautions
1-3
Information sur la prévention de décharges électrostatiques
Les décharges électrostatiques peuvent endommager des éléments du
module. Ces décharges, qui surviennent lors d’une manipulation
inadéquate du module, peuvent entraîner une défaillance temporaire ou
permanente.
ATTENTION: Pour éviter des dommages électrostatiques:
Assurez-vous d’être bien branché à la terre. Utilisez un sous-pied et un
tapis relié à la terre ou portez un bracelet mis à la terre et veillez à ce
que le contact dermique soit bon.
Conservez le module dans un sac antistatique jusqu’à son installation.
Sicherheitsinformationen für elektrostatische Entladungen
Elektrostatische Entladungen (ESD) können einzelne Baugruppen oder
das gesamte Modul beschädigen. ESD können vorkommen, wenn das
Modul nicht richtig gehandhabt wird und können eine dauerhafte oder
zeitweilige Fehlfunktion bewirken.
1-4
CHAPTER 1: INTRODUCTION
VORSICHT: Zur Verhütung von Schadën durch ESD:
Vergewissern Sie sich, daß Sie richtig geerdet sind. Benutzen Sie ein
Fußband und eine geerdete Matte oder tragen Sie ein geerdetes
Handgelenkband mit gutem Hautkontakt.
Lassen Sie das Modul bis zur Installation in der Anti-Statik-Tasche.
32MB Memory
Upgrade SIMM
This section explains how to handle and identify the 32MB Memory
Upgrade SIMM.
Inspecting the 32MB
SIMM
Before touching the memory SIMM make sure that you are using
the ESD wrist strap and that it is connected as described previously.
The SIMM should only be held from the sides. Carefully remove the
SIMM from the antistatic bag and inspect it for damages. If the
SIMM appears to be damaged, return it to the antistatic bag and
contact your 3Com Representitive.
Identifying the
32MB Memory
Upgrade SIMM
To accurately identify the product as 32MB check for a label with
the inscription “32MB” on the upper component side of the SIMM
(Figure 1-2). Make sure the SIMM has the 32MB label.

32MB Memory
Upgrade Steps
Step 1
Removing the CoreBuilder 7000HD Switch Module from the
Chassis
Before starting, make sure that you wearing the ESD wrist strap and
that you are properly connected to grounding equipment as
described in “Safety Precautions” on page 1-2.
Disconnect the cables from the module’s ports. Ensure that there is a
record of where the cables are attached so that you can correctly
re-connect them to the module when finished.
With the #1 flathead screwdriver supplied, loosen the two captive
screws located on the far left and right of the module near the
ejector handles (Figure 2-1). Do not remove the screws.
2-2
CHAPTER 2: 32MB MEMORY UPGRADE INSTALLATION ON THE COREBUILDER 7000HD SWITCH MODULE
Loosening the Captive Screws
Grasp the ejector handles of the card and push them outward (Figure
2-2). This ejects the card slightly. You may have to apply considerable
force to the handles in order to eject the card. You will hear a “click”
to indicate that the connections have separated, and the card will slide
slightly forward out of the CoreBuilder chassis.
32MB Memory Upgrade Steps
2-3
Opening the Ejector Handles
Make sure that the screws have been loosened enough so that they
“float” in the holes and do not catch on the front panel.
Keeping the ejectors in the openmost position, remove the switch
module by sliding it outwards.
If you experience difficulty in removing the switch, insert the special
key in the space above the switch module on the right side near the
black handle of the power supply (Figure 2-3).
2-4
CHAPTER 2: 32MB MEMORY UPGRADE INSTALLATION ON THE COREBUILDER 7000HD SWITCH MODULE
Inserting the Special Key
Raise the key and slide the switch module out (Figure 2-4).
Sliding the Switch Module Out
Using both hands, pull the switch module out.
32MB Memory Upgrade Steps
2-5
Only use the special key provided if you have difficulty in removing
the switch module.
Place the switch module on a grounded surface or antistatic bag
with all components facing up.
Step 2
Removing the 16MB Memory SIMM
The memory SIMM is located on the lower left corner of the module
when the front panel is facing you. (Figure 2-5) On the top of the
memory SIMM there are two metal spring clips (one on each side of
the SIMM) that hold the SIMM in place (Figure 2-6).

With your thumbs, push the clips outward to release the SIMM.
When pressed, the SIMM releases and rises slightly (Figure 2-7).
Removing the 16MB SIMM
With your thumb and index finger, remove the SIMM from the
connector at a 45 degree angle (Figure 2-8).

Step 3
2-7
Removing the 16MB SIMM at a 45 Degree Angle
Inserting the 32MB Memory SIMM
Remove the 32MB Memory SIMM from the packaging material.
Make sure that the front panel of the switch module is facing you,
and that the switch is on proper grounding material, or an antistatic
bag.
Make sure that you hold the SIMM as follows:
The cutout on the gold connector edge is facing the front panel
(Figure 1-2).
The SIMM is held at a 45 degree angle.
Insert the SIMM with its gold connector into the black connector at
a 45 degree angle (Figure 2-9).

Inserting the 32MB Memory SIMM
With one or two fingers (not on the chips) gently press down. A
click is heard when the SIMM is in place (Figure 2-10).

Step 4
2-9
Returning the CoreBuilder 7000HD Switch Module back to the
Chassis
Orient the Switch Module so its labelling is upright and make sure
the eject handles are in the outward position.
Insert the module into the chassis by placing it in the guides of the
selected slot and slide the module with two fingers until it stops. While
inserting the module, raise it up a little and slide it in.
Grab both ejector handles and push them inward. This locks the module
into the chassis. You may have to apply considerable pressure to the
handles. An audible “click” indicates that the connectors have engaged.
Verify that the card has been properly installed by observing its LEDs.
Tighten the module’s securing screws.
Verifying 32MB
Memory Upgrade
To verify that the switch module’s memory has been upgraded
successfully, follow the steps below:
Reconnect all the cables to the switch module's ports according to
the record you made of the cables.
Reconnect the power cable.
