Introduction
The 3X-DE602-XX, based on the Intel 8255X chip set, provides a family of customer configurable, bridged, multi-port, Fast Ethernet solutions for HP Alphabased host CPU platforms, with Tru64 UNIX and OpenVMS driver support. The 3X-DE602-BB is a PCI (32-/64-bit, 33-66MHz) dual-port 10/100 UTP (RJ45)
Ethernet NIC and base module. This NIC provides optional add-on daughter-card expansion capability that includes:
A single-port MMF (SC) daughter card (3X-DE602-FA) for a total of three Ethernet ports (2 x 10/100 UTP and 1 x 100 Mbps MMF) in a single PCI
slot, or
The addition of a dual-port 10/100 UTP (RJ45) daughter card (3X-DE602-TA) for a total of four Ethernet ports (4 x 10/100 UTP) in a single PCI slot.
NOTE: The 3X-DE602-FA and 3X-DE602-TA CANNOT be used stand-alone.

Ease of Use
PCI Plug and Play
The 3X-DE602-BB is compliant with the 2.2 PCI specification; this NIC automatically configures its I/O address and
interrupts (IRQ) settings for easy installation.
Ethernet Autonegotiation/
configuration
The 3X-DE602-BB and -TA sense for 10 or 100 Mbps, and half- or full-duplex, and automatically configures to the highest
common network connection speed between the NIC and another NIC, or hub, or switch port. (The 3X-DE602-FA is 100
Mbps only.)
Diagnostic LED Indicators For each port, LED Indicators show link integrity, network speed, and network activity at a glance for easy troubleshooting.

Performance
64-bit PCI Bus
Efficient data transfer between the network the host CPU is essential for high-performance and low CPU utilization. The 3XDE602-BB provides a 32-bit/64-bit PCI Universal Connector to work in either 32- or 64-bit PCI bus slots.
Bus-mastering
The 3X-DE602-BB uses bus-mastering technology to maximize throughput and optimize host system utilization.

Security/Reliability
Network Fault Tolerance
(NFT)
Fail-over to a second Fast Ethernet or other LAN technology port is provided by both Tru64 UNIX and OpenVMS. Under
Tru64 UNIX, NETrain or "link-trunking" can be used to manage the failover. Under OpenVMS, fail-over support is provided
by both OpenVMS Clusters and DECnet-Plus. Refer to the respective SPDs for further information.
Manually Configured
Link-Trunking
Tru64 UNIX V5.1a IPK includes support for manually configured 10/100 Ethernet Trunk-Groups. The links in a given trunk
group must all be the same speed, and must connect point-to-point between the same two systems {(Tru64 AlphaServer-to(802.3ad compliant switch), or (Tru64 AlphaServer)-to-(Tru64 AlphaServer)}.
Warranty
Maximum - The remaining warranty of the HP AlphaServer in which it is installed.
Minimum - 1-year Return-to-Factory with Advance Exchange
NOTE: Certain restrictions and exclusions apply. Contact 1-800-OK-COMPAQ for details.
