MS630-CA Technical Information for MicroVAX 11-

based systems

1 DESCRIPTION OF MS630-CA MEMORY MODULE

The MS630-CA memory module, shown in Figure 1, is a standard, quad-height memory module that contains 8 megabytes of MOS memory storage. It employs 256K x 1-Bit Dynamic RAMs (DRAMS) in a ZIP (Zig Zag In-line Package) configuration. This packaging allows a two-fold increase (over conventional DRAM DIP packaging) in the number of DRAMs that can be mounted on the circuit board. The 8 megabyte array consists of eight blanks, with thirty-six 256K x 1 DRAMs in each bank.

The MS630-CA is a parity memory, and does not perform any error correction. Since parity is generated. on-board, via parity control logic in the board's data transceivers, errors are detected onboard and reported to the K:A630CPU module ..

The MS630-CA provides the same features and performance (except for capacity) as the MS630-BA and -AA modules. The MS630 can be used in any combination with other MS630 memory modules, which provides flexibility in terms of memory configuration for the MicroVAX II. The maximum physical address space of the MicroVAX II is 16 megabytes. There is one configuration where 17

Mbytes (two MS630-CA modules and the megabyte from the CPU module). Under this configuration, the megabyte of memory on the KA630-A CPU module is not used.

Version 1.1 and later

Version 2.0 and later

NOTE:

The PQL_DWSDEFAULT SYSGEN parameter is set incorrectly for most 16 MB MicroVAX II systems, and will cause the following error message to be displayed every time these systems are booted: %SYSBOOT _ W _ WS, default and quota raised to PHD + MINWSCNT. There is no harm caused due to the low SYSGEN parameter value, and the customer can work around the error message by raising the value of the PQL DWSDEFAULT SYSGEN parameter. This parameter will be modified in a futUre release of MicroVMS.

NOTE:

When using the "SHOW MEMORY" utility under MicroVMS, a "BAD PAGE" is indicated whenever one or two 8 Mbyte memory modules are used in the system. A "PAGE" in this instance refers to a 512 byte block. When the total system memory equals 13 Mbytes

(one MS630-CA memory module installed), one "BAD PAGE" will appear in response to the "SHOW MEMORY" command. When the total system memory equals 16 Mbytes (two

MS630-CA memory modules installed), two "Bad Pages (1024 bytes) will be indicated. The

MOM diagnostic used to test the MS630-CA will not indicate these pages as "BAD", but rather indicates that these pages are "IN-USE" for supporting the console program (thus, they are not tested by MOM).

8 MOM Tests, Utilities, and Error Messages

8.1 Customer Tests

1. FUNCTIONAL VERIFY-checks bitmap created during power-up diagnostics, fails if bitmap shows any missing pages.

2. EXERCISER-Copies bitmap generated during power-up, turns off the interrupt, and turns the bit for a particular page of memory off, turns interrupt back on, and then exercises the corresponding memory page. Performs pattern check and check for soft parity error. All accesses to memory are done through the Q22-bus mapping regIster. When testing for a particular page is completed, the bit in the bitmap corresponding· to that page is returned to the on position. This procedure is repeated for each bit in the map.

NOTE:

The exerciser should take no more than 1 minute per megabyte of memory.

8.2

Service Tests

NOTE:

All the tests listed in the Customer Tests section above are also available in Service Tests.

8.3 Utilities

NOTE:

1.

Utilities are available only with the Service Version of MOM.

UTILITY #l-performs the same check as the functional verify test, but prints out memory map, including bad areas, instead of passing or failing.

3

2. UTILITY H2-Destroys contents of memory, and performs endless stand-alone memory test (the same tests as in the power-up diagnostics). Prints summary of test results on 1st, 10th, 20th, passes, etc.

NOTE:

Once this test is performed, anything needed in system memory (MOM, the operating system, etc.) will have to be rebooted.

TO TABLE 2-1

When an R054 drive is used as a single fixed-disk drive in a BA23 enclosure, it should be configured to respond to drive select line 3 (053). This will make the drive ROO.

When R054 drive is used in a BA123 enclosure, drive numbering is determined by the choice of connectors used on the M9058 distribution board. Provided the M9058 board is set to factory configuraton, jumpers on the R054 drive has no effect.
