4.0AM-1600 AM-338/339 INSTALLATION
The AM-338 board occupies one I/O expansion connector on the AM-1600’s CPU
board, the AM-135. Depending on the configuration of your computer, the AM-338 will
be installed in the AM-135 board’s J14 or J15 I/O expansion connector. If you have an
AM-366 Ethernet controller installed in your computer, the AM-338 board must be
installed in J15. For installations without an AM-366 board, the AM-338 board will be
installed in J14.
PDI-00338-00, Rev. A02
Installation Instructions: AM-338 / AM-339 RJE Board Set
Page 3
The AM-366 Ethernet controller must always be installed in connector J14 in the
AM-1600 computer.
If you must remove an AM-314 serial I/O board in order to install the AM-338 board,
remember to remove the TRMDEF and SETJOB statements from your AMOSL.INI file
supporting the serial I/O board you are removing.
4.1Step by Step Installation (AM-1600 Desktop Model)
1.Power down your computer and remove the top cover.
2.Remove all cables connected to the AM-135 CPU board, take note of
where each cable is connected and how it is routed.
3.Completely remove the AM-135 CPU board from the computer. You’ll
need to squeeze the nylon locking posts in order to remove the CPU board
from the computer. Use a hex-driver to remove the hex-screws securing
the parallel printer port to the rear panel.
4.Using a hex-driver, remove all the serial I/O connectors from the rear
panel. Also, remove the SCSI connector from the rear panel using a small
phillips-head screwdriver.
5.Now, remove the rear panel by removing the four phillips-head screws
holding it in place. Replace the old rear panel with the new rear panel
included in the product kit.
6.Connect the serial port connectors to the new rear panel, replace the
hex-screws for the parallel port, and attach the external SCSI connector.
7.Re-install the CPU board and re-connect all cables you removed earlier in
this procedure.
8.Insert the AM-338 board into connector J14. Use J15 only if you have an
AM-366 Ethernet controller board installed in your computer.
9.Screw the AM-339 board into the rear panel using the supplied screws and
connect the ribbon cable between the two boards; being sure to connect
pin-1 on the AM-338 to pin-1 on the AM-339.
10.Power up the computer and run self test. Although self test will not check
the AM-338/AM-339 board set, it will insure that your basic system is
working properly.
PDI-00338-00, Rev. A02
Page 4
Installation Instructions: AM-338 / AM-339 RJE Board Set
A simple diagnostic to verify the operation of the AM-339 board is to use
an an oscilloscope to watch the DTR line (pin 20 on the DB-25 connector).
After a reset, DTR will go low for around two seconds while the AM-339
performs a memory self test. After memory self test has completed, DTR
will go high.
11.Once self test has passed, power the computer down again and replace
the top cover.
4.2Step by Step Installation (AM-1600 Deskside Model)
1.Power down your computer and remove the top cover.
2.Remove your computer’s top cover, following the instructions in
the AM1600 Deskside Computer Service Manual.
3.Insert the AM-338 board into connector J14. Use J15 only if you have an
AM-366 Ethernet controller board installed in your computer.
4.To install the AM-339 board, use the instructions in Section 5.1 "Step by
Step Instructions for Eagle Computers." Perform all the instuctions in steps
1 through 7. After you have completed the AM-339 installation, continue
the procedure at Section 4.3.
4.3Software Installation for the AM-1600
AlphaRJE version 4.0(122) or later is required in order to use the AM-338/AM-339 board
set. Download the AlphaRJE software onto your computer’s hard disk drive; for example:
LOG OPR:
STRRES DSK0:[]=ALL:[]
No changes are required to the AM-1600’s AMOSL.INI file in order to run AlphaRJE.
Note the first time you run AlphaRJE, you will be asked to enter a Product Installation
Code (or PIC). To do so, execute the RJE program from AMOS command level. This
PIC is a unique indentifier for your computer that must be obtained from your dealer.
Enter the PIC, carefully verifying you have entered it correctly and press RETURN .
PDI-00338-00, Rev. A02
Installation Instructions: AM-338 / AM-339 RJE Board Set
Page 5
After a brief pause, you should be returned to AMOS command level and you can
proceed with the remainder of the installation. If you see the error message
?Improper SSD, verify you entered the correct PIC by re-installing the software and
trying again. If you still receive the same error, check with your dealer to make sure the
correct PIC was supplied for your computer. You must successfully complete this
portion of the AlphaRJE installation for any other portion to work.
4.4Configuring RJE for the AM-1600
In order to run AlphaRJE, you need to run two other programs prior to using RJE to
communicate with the IBM computer. The CONFIG program allows you to change
various options and the CACOTA program generates a carriage control tape file for
report formatting on IBM hosts that use carriage control.
The CONFIG program is the same as in previous versions of AlphaRJE; only now the
I/O address field will accept full 32 bit values. When you run CONFIG, use the following
values for the I/O address field:
If your AM-338 board is in J14, use FFFFFCC1.
If your AM-338 board is in J15, use FFFFFC81.
The interrupt level does not matter and may be any value from zero to seven.
5.0EAGLE AM-338/339 INSTALLATION
In order to use the RJE AM-338/339 board set in an Eagle computer, the following items
must be true:
The AM-172 board used in Eagle computers must have a H00 (or later)
boot PROM.
The AM-174 board used in Eagle computers must have a E00 (or later)
boot PROM.
The AM-319(-10) board used in Eagle 200 computers must be at revision
A01 or later.
The AM-319(-00) board used in Eagle 300, 400, and 500 computers must
be at revision C02 or later for C revision artwork and B08 or later for B
revision artwork.
All Eagle 100 computers are AM-338/399 compatible.
The Eagle computer’s operating system can be no earlier than PR8/94
AMOS 1.4C or AMOS 2.2C.
PDI-00338-00, Rev. A02

Installation Instructions: AM-338 / AM-339 RJE Board Set
5.1Step by Step Installation for Eagle Computers
Follow the instructions in your Eagle Computer Service Manual that explain how to
remove your computer’s top cover. The service manual also includes configuration
drawings for AM-137, AM-319-00, and AM-319-10 boards. These drawings show the
location of the I/O expansion connectors. The AM-338 board must be plugged into a
specific connector in Eagle computers:
In the Eagle 100 computer, the AM-338 board plugs into the J6 I/O
expansion connector.
In the Eagle 200 computer, the AM-338 board plugs into the J6 I/O
expansion connector.
In the Eagle 300 computer, the AM-338 board plugs into the J11 I/O
expansion connector.
If you must remove an AM-314 or AM-318 serial I/O board in order to install the AM-338
board, remember to remove the TRMDEF and SETJOB statements from your
AMOS32.INI file supporting the serial I/O board you are removing.
The AM-338 board should be inserted into the appropriate slot with the component side
of the AM-338 board facing your computer’s rear panel. The AM-338 must be inserted
into the expansion slot at a slight angle and after you feel the board settle into the slot,
you rotate it into an upright position. When the AM-338 is properly positioned, the metal
retainer clips at each end of the expansion slot will click into position, locking the board
in place.
Once the AM-338 board is installed, you are ready to install the AM-339 board:
1.Before you install the AM-339 board, make sure the jumpers are
configured for DTE as shown in Figure 1.
2.The AM-339 board installs in the bottom of your Eagle computer’s drive
mounting bracket. The illustration on the next page shows the AM-339
board sitting in its mounting position. Before positioning the board inside
your chassis, plug the cable with the DB9 and DB25 connectors
(DWB-10314-00) into the AM-339 board’s J3 and J2 connectors. Once the
board has been installed, the J3 and J2 connectors are difficult to access.
3.Once the cable has been attached to the AM-339 board, set the board into
position inside the chassis. Make sure the board is oriented as shown in
the illustration. Install the two #6-32 phillips-head screws that hold the
AM-339 board in place.
The screws included in the installation kit are only .18" long; if
longer screws are used, they will hit the bottom of the
AM-339 board and cause an electrical short.

4.Select the DB9 and DB25 cutouts you want to use on your Eagle
computer’s rear panel. Remove the knock-out covers from the selected
cutouts. Install the free end of the DWB-10314-00 cable to the rear panel
using the hex-nut screws included in the installation kit.
The DB9 connector has threaded PEM-nuts, which the hex-nuts thread
into. The DB25 connector requires two #4 nuts that are used in conjunction
with the hex-nuts. All necessary hardware is included.
5.Now, install the DWB-10154-00 cable that links the AM-338 board’s J1
connector to the AM-339 board’s J1 connector. Make sure the cable is
installed pin-1 to pin-1. Figure 1 shows the pin-1 location for the AM-338
and AM-339 boards.
6.After the hardware has been installed, power up the computer and run self
test. Although self test will not check the AM-338/AM-339 board set, it will
insure that your basic system configuration is running properly.
A simple diagnostic to verify the operation of the AM-339 board is to use
an an oscilloscope to watch the DTR line (pin 20 on the DB-25 connector).
After a reset, DTR will go low for around two seconds while the AM-339
performs a memory self test. After memory self test has completed, DTR
will go high.
7.Once self test has passed, power the computer down again, replace the
top cover, and proceed to the next section.

5.2Software Installation
AlphaRJE version 4.0(122) or later is required in order to use the AM-338/AM-339 board
set. Download the AlphaRJE software onto your computer’s hard disk drive; for example:
LOG OPR:
STRRES DSK0:[]=ALL:[]
No changes are required to the AMOS32.INI file in order to run AlphaRJE on your Eagle
computer.
Note the first time you run AlphaRJE, you will be asked to enter a Product Installation
Code (or PIC). To do so, execute the RJE program from AMOS command level.
This PIC is a unique indentifier for your computer that must be obtained from your
dealer. Enter the PIC, carefully verifying you have entered it correctly and press RETURN .
After a brief pause, you should be returned to AMOS command level and you can
proceed with the remainder of the installation. If you see the error message
?Improper SSD, verify you entered the correct PIC by re-installing the software and
trying again. If you still receive the same error, check with your dealer to make sure the
correct PIC was supplied for your computer.
You must successfully complete this portion of the AlphaRJE installation for any other
portion to work.
5.3Configuring RJE
In order to run AlphaRJE correctly, you need to run two programs prior to using RJE to
communicate with the IBM computer. The CONFIG program allows you to change
various options and the CACOTA program generates a carriage control tape file for
report formatting on IBM hosts that use carriage control.
The CONFIG program is the same as in previous versions of AlphaRJE, only now the
I/O address field can accept full 32 bit values. When you run CONFIG, use the following
values for the I/O address field:
If your Eagle computer has an AM-319(-00) board, use address
FFFFF300.
If your Eagle computer has an AM-319(-10) board, use address
FFFFF100.
If your Eagle computer has an AM-137 board, use address
FFFFF100.
The interrupt level does not matter and may be any value from zero to seven.

6.0RUNNING ALPHARJE 4.0
If you’re familiar with previous versions of AlphaRJE, you’ll notice a number of changes
in AlphaRJE 4.0. All the screens use high/low intensity and reverse video in order to
give a better impression of what is going on. In addition, you’ll now notice:
1.The AM-330 is no longer referred to; instead, you’ll now see messages
saying "AlphaRJE interface" instead.
2.The "Send message via terminal" function now has a column counter, so
it’s much easier to see where you are.
3.The screen is divided into two distinct areas with the lower half of the
screen now completely reserved for messages received from the IBM host,
consequently there is no longer any ambiguity as to where a message
came from.
