CSI peripherals—hard drives,
CD-ROM or DVD drives, even
printers and scanners—are fast
and powerful. Maybe you’d like to
add one or two or more to your
IBM PC compatible computer
system, but thinking about what a
hassle that could be makes you
really nervous…
Don’t sweat it—Black Box
comes to the rescue again! Our
SCSI Host Adapters are fully
compliant with the PC-bus (ISA or
PCI) and SCSI-bus specifications,
so they aren’t likely to cause
strange incompatibility errors like
some cheap cards. They can
interoperate with a wide variety of
operating systems, including
Microsoft MS-DOS and
Windows 3.1.x, 95, 98, or NT;
Novell NetWare ; IBM OS/2 ,
and SCO UNIX . (The PCI cards
support Linux and UnixWare too.)
The PCI cards are also Plugand-Play compatible for simple,
automatic self-configuration, and
IC515C reaches up to 12 m
(39.4 ft.) to multiple devices
or 25 m (82 ft.) to a single
they come with a potent Setup
Utility built into their firmware.
The ISA SCSI-2 Controller (our
product code IC510C) is a basic
16-bit ISA SCSI card. (It’s the only
ISA card among the six Host
Adapters; the others are all PCI
cards.) It controls as many as
seven devices attached to either
its 50-pin (SCSI-1 or SCSI-2)
internal or its 25-pin (SCSI-1 only)
external port—or both.
The Fast SCSI-2 Host Adapter
(IC511C) and Ultra-Narrow SCSI-3
Host Adapter (IC512C) control as
many as seven SCSI-2 or “narrow
bus” SCSI-3 devices respectively,
attached to either or both their
50-pin internal and micro-D50
external ports.
The Ultra-Wide SCSI-3 Host
Adapter (IC514C) controls as
many as fifteen SCSI-3 devices
attached to any one or two of its
three ports: “wide” micro-D68
internal, narrow 50-pin internal,
and wide micro-D68 external.
The Dual-Channel Ultra-Narrow
and Wide SCSI-3 Host Adapter
(IC513C) can actually control two
SCSI buses at the same time. As
many as fifteen devices can be
attached to any one or two of the
three “Channel A” ports (wide
micro-D68 internal, narrow 50-pin
internal, and narrow micro-D50
external), and up to fifteen more
devices attached to either or both
of its internal “Channel B” ports
(wide micro-D68 and narrow
50-pin internal).
The Ultra2 LVD SCSI Host
Adapter (IC515C) is the fastest,
longest-distance of these cards. It
uses Low Voltage Differential
(LVD) technology to transfer data
at up to 80 Mbps as far as 12 m
(39.4 ft.) to two or more devices or
25 m (82 ft.) to just one device. It
can support as many as fifteen
attached devices; these should all
be Ultra2 LVD type if possible, but
you can attach legacy devices if
you need to (though this will limit
the bus’s speed and distance).
You can attach both
internal and external
peripherals to any of
these Adapters, so your
host PC will have highspeed SCSI access
inside and out.
