Software
Each VSN870 shipped by Datapath is custom built. If cards are not pre-installed then installation of the
software is required. For information on software installation consult the relevant user manual contained
on the installation CD.
If you have ordered Datapath Wall Control-red software and this has been installed prior to shipment,
please ensure the Wall Control-red hardware USB key is installed before system boot up.
To install the Wall Control-red hardware USB key, remove from its packaging and insert it into a vacant
USB port as shown below:
Fig.4

Use of the SBC’s onboard graphics adaptor
Onboard Graphics Adaptor used as Control Screen
The VSN870 is shipped with the BIOS configured to boot off the onboard graphics device. This output can
then be used as the control screen for a typical wall configuration.
To set the system to boot on the onboard graphics device (“Internal Graphics Device” - IGD), enter setup
from the boot screen by pressing <DEL> as prompted.
In the BIOS setup utility select:
Chipset>North Bridge Configuration>Initiate Graphic Adapter - [IGD]
Chipset>North Bridge Configuration>PEG Port Configuration>PCI Express Port - [Auto]
Fig.5
CAUTION: If the SBC BIOS is setup for IGD as above, then you must not insert an Image4 or other
VGA graphics card in the first (x8 lane) PCIe slot (Fig.7).
Please note that when the VSN870 is configured with a Vision800X expansion chassis, the first slot of the
host machine is taken up by the H-Link card, so the above prohibition refers to the first slot of the
expansion chassis.
Onboard Graphics Adaptor Disabled
If you do not require a control screen, then you should disable the integrated graphics as described below.
Connect a monitor to the onboard graphics device output and enter setup from the boot screen by
pressing <DEL> as prompted.
In the BIOS setup utility select:
9
Chipset>North Bridge Configuration>Initiate Graphic Adapter - [PEG/PCI]
Chipset>North Bridge Configuration>PEG Port Configuration>PCI Express Port - [Auto]
Fig.6
The system will then boot on the primary screen of the bottom connector of the graphics card that is closest to the SBC, irrespective of the settings of the identification links on the graphics cards. In this context
“closest to the SBC” is defined in terms of the PCI bus enumeration, so if a Vision800X is attached to the
host, the system will boot on the first VGA card to be discovered in the Vision800X (counting from the slot
closest to the S-Link slot), and failing that the first graphics card in the host machine.
When the BIOS is set to PEG/PCI as above you are free to install the graphics cards in any PCIe slot,
including the first (x8 lane) slot.
10
Hardware Installation
Your VSN870 may have cards that require installation as cards may have been shipped separately.
To ensure your cards are installed correctly please consult the user manual for detailed instructions. All
user manuals can be located on the Software Installation Suite CD.
VSN870 Backplane Layout
The VSN870 is fitted with the Datapath Express9 backplane. The backplane consists of:
•
•
•
One PICMG1.3 slot
One x8 lane PCIe slot
Eight x4 lane PCIe slots
Fig.7
11
Connecting Expansion Chassis (Vision800X)
It is possible to connect a Vision800X expansion chassis to the VSN870 thereby increasing the number of
PCIe slots available.
The following diagrams illustrate how this can be achieved:
Fig.8
Vision800X
Fig.9
VSN870
Connecting the chassis is achieved by installing H-Link and S-Link cards in the VSN870 and Vision800X
and connecting the two cards using the Ex-Cable.
S-Link
H-Link
Fig.10
Fig.11
12
When connecting a Vision800X expansion chassis to a VSN870 machine the H-Link card in the VSN870
must be installed into the x8 slot. The S-Link card in the Vision800X should be installed in the PICMG1.3
SBC slot.
Connect the H-Link and S-Link cards using the Ex-Cable as shown in the illustrations on the previous page.
Gen-locking Cables on H-Link and S-Link Boards
Connectors J4 and J5 are used for Gen-locking multiple chassis together. This is useful when using
multiple chassis that each contains a number of Datapath Image4 graphics cards. The gen-locking chain
can be used to tie the outputs of the graphics cards together so that they all render their outputs to the
screen at the same time. This makes fast moving images appear smoother on the video/data wall and
eliminates ‘tearing’ artefacts on the display.
To create a gen-locked chain using the H-Link and corresponding S-Link cards, firstly ensure that the
system is powered down. Then connect the gen-locked output of the closest Image4 graphics card to
connector J4 (GEN LOCK IN) on the H-Link board using the cable supplied with your H-Link board, as
shown in the picture below. Note that this cable is longer than the cable supplied with each Image4
graphics card in order to cover the extra distance between the Image4 and the H-Link board. This will send
the gen-locked clock over the Ex-cable to the next downstream chassis.
Fig.12
In order to complete the gen-locked link, you will need to connect the output of the S-Link board in the
downstream expansion chassis back into the next Image4 graphics card in the chain, as per the following
image. Note again that the cable supplied with the S-Link board is longer than those supplied with the
Image4 graphics card in order to cover the extra distance.
13
Fig.12
If you are connecting more than two expansion chassis together, you can continue to expand the gen lock
link to further downstream chassis by fitting a H-link board into the first slot of the first expansion chassis
and by connecting a gen-lock cable from the S-Link board directly into the H-Link card in the expansion
chassis, whilst at the same time connecting the H-Link output to the next Image4 graphics card. See the
following picture as an example. In this way you can create very large systems and maintain the gen
locking capability between all Image4 graphics cards.
Note: If the ImageDP4 graphics cards are being used in the system, ribbon cables are not required for
gen-locking as the ImageDP4 uses the PCI reference clock as a gen lock source.
14
Fig.13
VSN870 LED’s
The VSN870 and Vision800X have an LED for each PCIe slot and the PICMG1.3 SBC slot.
Fig.14
15
The LED’s indicate the following:
•
Flashes on for 1.5 seconds then off for 0.5 seconds. This indicates that the full lane width has been established for that slot e.g. x4 card in a x4 slot
•
Flashes on for 0.5 seconds then off for 1.5 seconds.
This indicates that a reduced lane width has been established and the slot is not working to maximum
efficiency e.g. a x1 card inserted into a x4 slot.
•
No LED’s flashing.
This indicates that lane width has not been established.
The LED’s will not flash on slots where no cards are installed.
VSN870 Series Approved Accessories
The items below are UL Listed Accessories for VSN870 series machines. Use of these plug-in cards within
VSN870 and Vision800X chassis, to build custom systems, will maintain the UL listed status for the system.
The cards can be used in any combination, in any order, in any slots on the backplane(s) without losing the
approval.
