Chapter 1
Base System Description
This chapter describes the VAX 4000 Model 200 base system, including the
following:
•
Power-up self tests
•
Digital Storage Systems Interconnect (DSSI) architecture
•
Specifications for the KA660-AA/BA CPU and MS650-BA/BB memory
1.1 System Overview
The VAX 4000 Model 200 base system components are housed in two
different enclosures: the BA430 enclosure, which contains a 12-slot Qbus backplane, and the BA215 enclosure, which contains a 6-slot Q-bus
backplane.
Each base system contains the following:
•
A KA660–AA/BA (M7626–A/–B) central processing unit (CPU) module
•
From one to four MS650–Bx memory modules.
The base system modules are located in the following card slots:
•
MS650–Bx memory modules are installed in slots 2 through 5.
•
The KA660 CPU module is installed in slot 1.
The base system operates from the KA660 CPU firmware and the controls
on the CPU cover panel. The firmware is described in Section 1.2. Base
system operation also integrates Digital Storage Systems Interconnect
(DSSI) technology, which is discussed in Section 1.5.
Figure 1–1 is a block diagram of the VAX 4000 Model 200 system.

1–2 VAX 4000 Model 200 Technical Information
1.2 Firmware Overview
Two electrically programmable read-only memory (EPROM) chips on the
KA660 CPU module contain the firmware. This firmware consists of the
following three major programs, which perform the system power-up selftests and diagnostics:
•
A console program
•
A set of self-tests for the CPU and memory
•
A primary bootstrap program (VMB)
The console program receives control whenever the processor halts. In
a processor halt, processor control passes to the console program and
instruction execution continues. The standard VAX console functionality
is emulated whenever you execute a program in ROM.
Control passes to the firmware under any of the following conditions:
•
You turn on the system.
•
You press the Restart button.
•
You assert the Q22-bus BHALT signal by pressing the Halt button.
•
You enter a break when the Break Enable/Disable switch is set to
enable.
•
A HALT instruction is executed.
•
A fatal system error occurs.
Base System Description
1–3
1.3 Power-Up
At power-up, the console program determines the console device type and
console language, then runs the self-tests for the CPU and memory. You
choose the console language when you perform the set-up operations during
your console terminal installation procedure.
You determine the type of power-up mode by setting the Power-Up Mode
switch on the CPU cover panel. See your VAX 4000 Model 200 Operation
manual for the following power-up information:
•
Power-up procedures
•
Power-Up Mode and Break Enable/Disable switch settings
•
Examples of successful power-up sequences
•
Boot and autoboot procedures
See the VAX 4000 Model 200 Troubleshooting and Diagnostics manual for
examples of problems you may encounter during power-up.
1.4 Console I/O Mode Overview
If you set the Break Enable/Disable switch on the CPU cover panel to
enable, the console program enters Console I/O mode after the powerup self-tests are completed successfully. The console program also enters
Console I/O mode in response to any external halt condition.
CAUTION: Do not press the Restart button while the console program is
in console mode. Doing so destroys the system state and prevents normal
operation.
Console I/O mode allows you to control the system by entering commands at
the console prompt >>>. You may enter these commands in either uppercase
or lowercase letters. Enter each command, then press Return .
1.4.1 Control Characters in Console I/O Mode
Table 1–1 lists the keypad control characters that have special meaning in
Console I/O mode.
1–4 VAX 4000 Model 200 Technical Information
Table 1–1: Console I/O Mode Control Characters
Character
also <CR>
Return
X
Action
(rubout)
The carriage return ends a command line. No action is taken on
a command until after it is terminated by a carriage return. A
null line terminated by a carriage return is treated as a valid, null
command. No action is taken, and the console prompts for input.
Carriage return is echoed as carriage return, line feed (<CR><LF>).
When you press x (rubout), the console deletes the previously typed
character. The resulting display differs, depending on whether the
console is a video or a hardcopy terminal.
For hardcopy terminals, the console echoes a backslash (\ )
followed by the character being deleted. If you press additional
rubouts, the additional deleted characters are echoed. If you type a
non-rubout character, the console echoes another backslash, followed
by the character typed. The result is to echo the characters deleted,
surrounding them with backslashes. For example:
EXAMI;E X
X
NE<CR>
The console echoes: EXAMI;E\ E\ NE<CR>
The console sees the command line: EXAMINE<CR>
For video terminals, the previous character is erased and the
cursor is restored to its previous position.

The console does not delete characters past the beginning of a
command line. If you press more rubouts than there are characters
on the line, the extra rubouts are ignored. A rubout entered on a
blank line is ignored.
Toggles insertion/overstrike mode for command line editing. By
default, the console powers up to overstrike mode.
Echoes ^C<CR> and aborts processing of a command. Has no effect
as part of a binary load data stream. Clears Ctrl/S and re-enables
output stopped by Ctrl/O .
Moves the cursor one position to the left.
Moves the cursor to the end of the line.
Moves the cursor one position to the right.
Recalls the previous commands.
Deletes the previously typed character. Same function as X
(rubout), above.
Ignores transmissions to the console until you enter Ctrl/O . Echoes
^O when disabling output, which is not echoed when it re-enables
output. Output is re-enabled if the console prints an error message,
or if it prompts for a command from the terminal. Output is also
enabled by entering Maintenance mode: press Break or enter Ctrl/C .
Resumes output to the console terminal. Not echoed.

Echoes <CR><LF>, followed by the current command line. Can be
used to improve the readability of a command line that has been
heavily edited.
Stops output to the console terminal until you enter Ctrl/Q . Not
echoed.
Echoes ^U<CR>. Entered, but otherwise ignored if typed on an
empty line.
The console accepts Console I/O mode commands up to 80 characters long.
Longer commands produce error messages. The character count does not
include rubouts, rubbed-out characters, or the <CR> at the end of the
command.
Two or more consecutive spaces and tabs are treated as a single space.
Leading and trailing spaces and tabs are ignored. You can place command
qualifiers after the command keyword or after any symbol or number in
the command.
All numbers (addresses, data, counts) are hexadecimal, but symbolic
register names contain decimal register numbers. The hexadecimal digits
are 0 through 9 and A through F. You can use uppercase and lowercase
letters in hexadecimal numbers (A through F) and commands.
The following symbols are qualifier and argument conventions:
[ ] = an optional qualifier or argument

Command
Action
BOOT
CONFIGURE
Initializes the processor and transfers execution to the VMB.
Invokes an interactive mode that permits you to enter Q22-bus
device names, then generates a table of Q22-bus I/O page device
CSR addresses and interrupt vectors.
Causes the processor to begin instruction execution at the address
currently contained in the program counter (PC). Does not perform
a processor initialization.
Deposits data into the address you specify. If you do not specify
an address space or data size qualifier, the console uses the last
address space and data size used in a DEPOSIT, EXAMINE,
MOVE, or SEARCH command.
Examines the contents of the memory location or register of the
address you specify. If you do not specify an address, + is assumed.
Searches main memory starting at address 0 (zero) for a pagealigned 128-Kbyte segment of good memory, or a restart parameter
block (RPB).
The HALT command has no effect. It is included for compatibility
with other VAX consoles.
Displays the correct syntax for all console commands.
Performs a processor initialization.
Copies the block of memory starting at the source address to a
block beginning at the destination address.
Executes the number of macro instructions you specify. If you do
not specify a number, 1 (one) is assumed.
Repeatedly displays and executes the command you specify. Press
Ctrl/C to stop the command. You can specify any valid console
command except the REPEAT command.
Finds all occurrences of a pattern and reports the addresses where
the pattern was found. If you include the /NOT qualifier, the
command reports all addresses for which the pattern did not
match.
Sets the default R5 boot flags. The value must be a hexadecimal
number of up to eight digits.
Sets the default boot device. The value must be a valid device
name.
Sets Control-P as the console halt condition, instead of a BREAK.
Connects to the DUP or MAINTENANCE driver on the node or
device you specify.

1.5 Digital Storage Systems Interconnect (DSSI)
The KA660 CPU module contains an embedded DSSI chip on the module
which becomes a DSSI bus interface connector that is dedicated to the mass
storage devices in the VAX 4000 Model 200 system. (See Figure 1–1 for the
VAX 4000 Model 200 block diagram.)
The DSSI bus interface connects to a DSSI Integrated Storage Element
(ISE). An ISE is a 5.25-inch disk drive that has special mounting brackets
for simplified enclosure installation and upgrading.
Each DSSI bus has the following characteristics:
•
A 4-Mbytes-per-second bandwidth
•
Up to eight nodes (one interface and up to seven ISEs)
•
Eight data lines
•
One parity line
•
Eight control lines
DSSI architecture improves system performance as follows:
•
The DSSI bus handles all mass storage transactions.
•
Mass storage devices can act independently, since each device contains
its own controller. Several devices can work simultaneously.
The DSSI bus interface supports up to eight nodes. These eight nodes
include the DSSI interface and seven ISEs.
An ISE can maintain connections to more than one DSSI interface. In a
dual-host configuration in which multiple CPUs can be connected to the
DSSI bus interfaces. For example, two VAX 4000 Model 200 systems can
have access to each ISE over a shared DSSI bus.
For more information about using VAX 4000 Model 200 systems in a dualhost configuration, and the advantages of such configurations, see the VAX
4000 Model 200 Dual-Host Systems manual.

2.1.1 Configuration
Options must be properly configured so that the system recognizes them.
Each option in a system has a device address, commonly referred to as
a control and status register (CSR) address, and an interrupt vector that
must be set when the option is installed. Options are usually configured by
setting switches or jumpers on modules already configured at the factory
or Digital service representatives configure the option when they install it
in your system.
Self-maintenance customers can find information on setting CSR addresses
and interrupt vectors in the Microsystems Options volume of the Entry
Systems Service kit.

Asynchronous Serial Controllers
Asynchronous serial controllers provide low-speed connections between
peripheral devices and the system. Asynchronous communications between
the system and the peripheral depends on recognition of a pattern of start
and stop bits, not on a time interval.
Synchronous Serial Controllers
Synchronous serial controllers provide high-speed connections between
systems. Communication between synchronous devices depends on time
intervals that are synchronized before transmission of data begins.
Ethernet Controllers
Ethernet controllers connect your system to an Ethernet network. With
a network connection and appropriate DECnet software, you can use all
network services.

Chapter 3
System Expansion
This chapter provides guidelines on how to expand your VAX 4000 Model
200 system.
3.1 Planning System Expansion
You must consider the following when you decide to expand your system:
•
Can your system accommodate additional supported options?
You determine this by filling in the appropriate worksheet (Figure 3–1
or Figure 3–2) with the options currently installed in your system and
those you wish to add.
•
If your existing system cannot accommodate a particular set of
supported options, you might wish to add one of the following
expanders, to enable support for the RA-series or RF-series ISEs.
NOTE: When combining BA215 and BA430 enclosures in the same
VAXcluster, you must use grounding kit H4010–AA.
Expander
Name
Additional
Q-22-Bus Slots
Additional
Storage Capacity
B213F
11
Up to three RF-series ISEs.
R215F
0
Up to three RF-series ISEs.
B400X
11
Up to four RF-series disk drives or three
tape drives and and one TK or TF series
tape drive.
R400X
0
Up to seven RF-series disk drive or six
RF-series ISEs, with room for one TLZ04
tape drive.
This chapter does not describe how to configure new options or how to install
them in your system. Configuring an option involves assigning a control and
status register (CSR) address and an interrupt vector. This is usually done
System Expansion
3–1
by means of switches or jumpers on the options themselves. Digital service
representatives configure the options when they install them. Your Digital
service representative also determines the proper placement of options
within your system, according to specific guidelines.
3.2 Completing the VAX 4000 Model 200
Configuration Worksheets
To determine what options you can add to your system, you must list the
options currently installed and their power requirements on the appropriate
VAX 4000 Model 200 Configuration Worksheet, provided in Figure 3–1 and
Figure 3–2.
The worksheet in Figure 3–1 is for the BA430 enclosure. All backplane
slots and mass storage devices are powered by the H7874 power supply.
The worksheet in Figure 3–2 is for the BA215 enclosure.
Use the worksheets as follows:
1. In the Module column, list all options and mass storage devices
currently installed in your system, except the controller for the tape
drive. The processor module, one memory module, and the tape drive
has already been entered.
Use the label on the cover panel of each slot to identify the module
installed in that slot.
2. List each RF-series ISE.
3. List the options and mass storage devices you wish to add to your
system.
4. List the controller for the tape drive last.
5. Fill in the power requirements for each module and each mass storage
device. The power requirements for the more common options are listed
in Table 3–1; refer to the option descriptions in Chapter 2 for the power
requirements of additional options.
6. Add each column and make sure the totals do not exceed the specified
limit. As long as the figures are within range, you can probably install
the new option(s).
NOTE: The worksheets are only guides. Confirm your plan with your
Digital sales representative. While certain configurations may be possible,
they may not be recommended due to excessive loads on the system or
difficulties in arranging bus and cable access to all devices.
