CHAPTER 4: Installation
4. Installation
IMPORTANT
You MUST set up the operating system BEFORE you physically install
the Card.
4.1 Setting Up the Operating System
If you are installing the PCI adapter in DOS, OS/2®, or QNX, please refer to the
appropriate directory on one of the Serial Utilities Disks for instructions.
4.1.1 WINDOWS 3.1X
Refer to the Win3x.hlp file in the \Win31 directory on Disk 1 of the Serial Utilities
software.
4.1.2 WINDOWS 95/98 USERS
If you are installing the PCI card in Windows 95/98, run setup on disk two of the
Serial Utilities Diskettes before installing the card. Power down the computer and
install the adapter. The resources are automatically configured for the PCI card.
Refer to the appropriate help file in the Black Box folder located in the Start,
Programs menu for changing those resources.
4.1.3 WINDOWS NT
If you are installing a PCI card in Windows NT, run setup on disk two of the Serial
Utilities Diskettes before installing the card. After the software installation is
complete, power down the computer, install the card, then power up. Since
resource allocation is automatic, the installation is now complete.
4.1.4 DOS
Refer to the Readme.txt file found in the \DOS directory on Disk 1 of the Serial
Utilities software.
4.1.5 OTHER OPERATING SYSTEMS
Refer to the appropriate directory on Disk 1 of the Serial Utilities software.

8-PORT SERIAL HOST ADAPTER PCI
4.2 Installing the Hardware
You can install the Serial Host Adapter in any of the PCI expansion slots. It
contains several jumper straps for each port that you must set for proper
operation.
1. Power off the PC. Disconnect the power cord.
2. Remove the PC cover.
3. Locate an available PCI slot and remove the blank metal slot cover.
4. Gently insert the Adapter into the slot. Make sure that it is seated properly.
5. Connect the DB78 male connector end of the octopus cable to the DB78
female connector on the card.
6. Replace the screw.
7. Replace the cover.
8. Connect the power cord.

CHAPTER 5: Technical Description
5. Technical Description
5.1 Interrupts
A good analogy of a PC interrupt is a telephone ringing. The phone bell is a
request for us to stop what we are currently doing and take up another task (speak
to the person on the other end of the line). This is the same process the PC uses to
alert the CPU that a task must be performed. The CPU, upon receiving an
interrupt, makes a record of what the processor was doing at the time and stores
this information on the “stack”; this allows the processor to resume its predefined
duties after the interrupt is handled, exactly where it left off. Every main sub-system
in the PC has its own interrupt, frequently called an IRQ (short for Interrupt
ReQuest).
5.2 Why Use an ISP?
The Interrupt Status Port (ISP) is a read-only 8-bit register that sets a
corresponding bit when an interrupt is pending. Port 1 interrupt line corresponds
with Bit D0 of the status port, Port 2 with D1, etc. The use of this port means that
the software designer now only has to poll a single port to determine if an
interrupt is pending.
The ISP is at Base+7 on each port (example: Base=280 hex, Status Port=287,
28F...etc.). The Adapter will allow any one of the available locations to be read
to obtain the value in the status register. Both status ports on the Adapter are
identical, so either one can be read. Example: This indicates that Channel 2 has
an interrupt pending.

APPENDIX A: Troubleshooting
Appendix A: Troubleshooting
A.1 Using the Serial Utility Diskettes
A Serial Utility diskette comes with the Serial Host Adapter for use in
troubleshooting. If you still cannot solve a problem after reading this chapter,
call for technical support.
1. Identify all I/O adapters currently installed in your system, including your
on-board serial ports, controller cards, sound cards, etc. Identify the I/O
addresses used by these adapters, as well as the IRQ (if any).
2. Configure your Serial Host Adapter so that there is no conflict with currently
installed adapters. No two adapters can occupy the same I/O address.
3. Make sure the Adapter is using a unique IRQ. While this Adapter does allow
the sharing of IRQs, many other adapters (such as SCSI adapters and onboard serial ports) do not. The IRQ is typically selected via an on-board
header block. Refer to Chapter 3 for help in choosing an I/O address
and IRQ.
4. Make sure the Adapter is securely installed in a motherboard slot.
5. For Windows 95/98 and Windows NT, the diagnostic tool “WinSSD” is
installed in the Adapter folder on the Start Menu during the startup process.
First find the ports using the Device Manager, then use “WinSSD” to verify
that the ports are working.
6. When running DOS, Windows 3.x or other operating systems, refer to Serial
Utilities Disk 1 and this manual to verify that the Adapter is configured
correctly. The supplied software contains a diagnostic program “SSD” that
runs under DOS and will verify if an adapter is configured properly. This
diagnostic program is easy to use. Refer to the README.txt file on the
supplied diskette for detailed instructions on using “SSD.”
A.2 Calling for Technical Support
If the procedures described in Section A.1 do not solve your problem, call Black
Box Technical Support at 724-746-5500. Have the following information ready
when you call:
1. Current adapter settings. If possible, have the Adapter installed in a computer
ready to run diagnostics.
2. This user manual for reference.

8-PORT SERIAL HOST ADAPTER PCI
Appendix B: RS-232 Electrical
Interface
The most widely used communication standard is RS-232. It’s been defined and
revised several times and is sometimes also called EIA/TIA-232. The IBM AT
computer defined the RS-232 port on a DB9 connector, and subsequently the
EIA/TIA approved this implementation as the EIA/TIA-574 standard, which is
defined as the “9-Position Non-Synchronous Interface between Data Terminal
Equipment and Data Circuit-Terminating Equipment Employing Serial Binary
Data Interchange.”
RS-232 can operate at data rates of up to 20 kbps at distances less than 50 ft.
(15.2 m). The absolute maximum data rate may vary depending on line conditions
and cable lengths. RS-232 is a single-ended or unbalanced interface, meaning that
a single electrical signal is compared to a common signal (ground) to determine
binary logical states. The RS-232 and the EIA/TIA-574 specification define two
types of interface circuits, Data Terminal Equipment (DTE) and Data CircuitTerminating Equipment (DCE). The Serial Host Adapter is a DTE device.
16
APPENDIX C: Asynchronous Communication
Appendix C: Asynchronous
Communication
In serial data communication, individual bits of a character are transmitted
consecutively to a receiver that assembles the bits back into a character. Data rate,
error checking, handshaking, and character framing (start/stop bits) are predefined and must correspond at both the transmitting and receiving ends.
Asynchronous communication is the standard means of serial data
communication for PC and compatible computers. The original PC was equipped
with a communication or COM port that was designed around an 8250 Universal
Asynchronous Receiver Transmitter (UART), which allows asynchronous serial
data to be transferred through a simple and straightforward programming device.
The Serial Host Adapter (IC142C) uses a much newer 16554 UART that also
features buffering.
Asynchronous communication works this way: A start bit, followed by a predefined number of data bits (5, 6, 7, or 8) defines character boundaries for
asynchronous communication. The end of the character is defined by the
transmission of a pre-defined number of stop bits (usually 1, 1.5, or 2).

17
8-PORT SERIAL HOST ADAPTER PCI
An extra bit used for error detection is often appended before the stop bits.
This special bit is called the parity bit. Parity is a simple way to determine if a data
bit has been lost or corrupted during transmission. There are several methods for
implementing a parity check to guard against data corruption. Common methods
are called [E]ven Parity or [O]dd Parity. Sometimes parity is not used to detect
errors on the data stream (this is called [N]o Parity). Because each bit in
asynchronous communication is sent consecutively, it is wrapped (framed) by
pre-defined bits to mark the beginning and end of the serial transmission of the
character. The data rate and communication parameters for asynchronous
communication have to be the same at both the transmitting and receiving ends.
The communication parameters are baud rate, parity, number of data bits per
character, and stop bits—for example, 9600, N, 8, 1.
