Main unit
A PowerPC™ 603e processor with the following features:
m 180 megahertz (MHz) or 200 MHz processor speed (You can tell by the
second part of the number of your computer model. For example, if your
computer model is a Power Macintosh 5400/180, the speed is 180 MHz.)
m built-in floating point unit (FPU)
m 40 MHz system bus
m 32 kilobytes (K) internal cache (16K data, 16K instruction)
m A minimum of 16 megabytes (MB) of dynamic random-access memory
(DRAM), expandable to a maximum of 136 MB in two sockets. The main
logic board has 8 MB of DRAM soldered to it, and an 8 MB DRAM
DIMM is installed in one of the sockets. DRAM DIMMs installed later
should be 64-bit wide, 168-pin fast-paged mode, with 70-nanosecond (ns)
RAM access time or faster.
m 1 MB of built-in video RAM
m 4 MB of read-only memory (ROM)
m 8K of nonvolatile parameter memory
m One socket for an optional High Performance Module (256K Level 2
Cache). The Power Macintosh 5400/200 comes with a High Performance
Module already installed.
Internal disk drives
The following drives were installed in your computer at the factory:
m Apple SuperDrive 1.4 MB high-density floppy disk drive
m Apple ATA (AT Attachment) hard disk drive, also known as an Integrated
Device Electronics (IDE) hard disk drive
m Tray-loading CD-ROM drive (5.25-inch, 1/2-height 8x-speed).

Video input
With the optional Apple Video System video input card, you can view and
record video from a video camera, VCR, or other video equipment. (If the
optional Apple TV/FM Radio System is also installed, you can record video
from broadcast or cable television.)
m Format: composite or S-video
m Transmission Format: industry standard NTSC/PAL/SECAM
m Polarity: sync negative
m Level: 0.8 volts peak-to-peak (Vpp) minimum to 2.0 Vpp maximum
(“S” chroma level 1.4 Vpp maximum)
m Impedance: 75 ohms (Ω) internally terminated
m DC offset: +/–1.0 volts (V) maximum
m 16-bit stereo input
m 16-bit stereo output featuring
3D Surround Sound technology
m Sample rates of 11.025, 22.05, and 44.1 kilohertz (kHz)
m Sound input connector line level: 2 Vpp maximum, into 10 kilohms (kΩ)
m Sound output connector line level: 2 Vpp maximum, into 32 Ω impedance
m Signal-to-noise ratio (SNR): 75 decibels (dB) minimum, 80 dB typical
(A-weighted, 2 Vpp output, 1 kHz, digital record and playback, sound
input port to sound output port, with
3D Surround Sound
turned off)
m Frequency response: 20 Hz–18 kHz (–3 dB relative to 1 kHz under the
same conditions as the SNR measurement)
m CMOS custom circuitry with long-life battery
WARNING If the clock begins to lose accuracy, see your Apple-authorized
dealer or service provider for a battery replacement. Do not attempt to
replace the clock battery yourself.
m Supports all Apple Desktop Bus (ADB) keyboards
m Supports all models of the ADB mouse
m One ADB port supporting up to three ADB input devices (such as a
trackball, keyboard, or mouse) daisy-chained through a synchronous
serial bus
m The optional Apple External Video Connector kit provides one monitor-out
port. By connecting a second monitor, an LCD panel, or the Apple
Presentation System to the port, you can simultaneously display on the
attached device the images displayed on your computer’s built-in monitor.
(You cannot increase the size of your desktop by connecting a second
monitor to this monitor-out port.) For a list of supported monitors, see
“Video Output” earlier in this booklet.
m One internal expansion slot supporting 6.88-inch 15-watt Peripheral
Component Interconnect (PCI) expansion cards. Install only expansion
cards that come with Macintosh drivers and are compliant with the PCI 2.0
standard. NuBus™ cards cannot be used in this expansion slot.
m One internal expansion slot supporting communication cards (such as
modem, fax, Ethernet)
m One internal expansion slot supporting video input cards using NTSC,
m One internal expansion bay for the optional Apple TV/FM Radio System
m Two RS-232/RS-422 serial GeoPort-compatible ports
m One 3.5-mm sound output port for line-level devices such as powered
m One 3.5-mm headphone jack
m One 3.5-mm sound input port for stereo sound input. The sound input port
supports the Apple PlainTalk Microphone. (You can also connect nonApple microphones.) In addition, the sound input port supports a standard
stereo (miniplug-to-RCA) cable adapter for connecting stereo equipment to
your computer. It does not support the Apple Omni microphone (the round
microphone shipped with some earlier models of Macintosh) or the
attenuated RCA adapter provided with some models of Macintosh.
m One external standard SCSI port that supports up to six external
SCSI devices
IMPORTANT Some older SCSI devices or SCSI devices not manufactured by
Apple may require updated drivers. (A “driver” is special software that is
installed in your System Folder.) Contact the device manufacturer for
information on obtaining driver software.
Additional features
m Built-in microphone
m Built-in stereo speakers
m Support for optional infrared remote control
m Front panel push-button controls for volume and picture
m Power on and off from keyboard and optional remote control (included
with the optional Apple TV/FM Radio System)
