Model description 7012-320

The IBM RS/6000 320 and 320H are powerful multi-user, multi-tasking desktop systems combining high function, expansion capabilities, and outstanding price/performance. The systems can be installed in either a vertical or horizontal position to conserve desk space. A pedestal is provided for stabilization in the vertical position and is mounted on the bottom of the system unit when in the horizontal position.

The 320 and 320H are multi-purpose, desktop systems for commercial and scientific environments.

The 320 and 320H are the IBM RS/6000 entry server systems and are suitable for a variety of file server, compute server and multi-user ASCII terminal applications.

The 320 and 320H have optional graphics features. IBM RS/6000 systems can be used either as a stand-alone graphics workstation or configured as a LAN-dependent "client system". Designed around IBM's POWER Architecture, the system unit contains a Processor Board, System Board, Memory Board, Power supply, Cooling fans, Clock Battery, Disk, Diskette Drive and Operator Panel.

The 320 contains a 20 MHz microprocessor chip set and 8MB of memory is standard. The system may be configured up to 128MB (maximum) of memory. A combination of 8, 16, 32 or 64MB memory cards, up to a maximum of two cards may be installed. As a select feature, the base system may be ordered with 16, 32 or 64MB of memory in place of the first 8MB of memory.

The 320H CPU contains a 25 MHz microprocessor chip set and 16MB of memory is standard. The system may be configured up to 128MB (maximum) of memory. A combination of 8, 16, 32, or 64MB memory cards, up to a maximum of two cards may be installed. As a select feature, the base system may be ordered with 32 or 64MB of memory in place of the first 16MB of memory.

The CPU contains an 8KB two-way set-associative instruction cache and a 32KB four-way set-associative data cache. It also supports separate 64-bit memory to data cache, 32-bit fixed-point to data cache and 64-bit floating-point to data cache buses for fast data transfer between the CPU and memory for a balanced system performance.

Dedicated I/O processors are used on many of the high performance I/O adapters to enhance overall system performance.

Reliability, availability, and serviceability are key considerations in the design of the RS/6000 systems. CPU chips have data parity in their data paths and on internal arrays, CPU chip to chip data busses have parity, and the Micro Channel bus supports parity on some adapters. CPU chips implement a unique built-in self test to detect CPU errors during power up. The memory subsystem is also tested extensively during power up. The memory subsystem provides ECC (Error Correction Code) designed to detect double bit errors and detection and correction of single bit errors. Memory Control also supports hardware assisted memory scrubbing for removal of soft failures.
Note: MB is 1,048,576 bytes (two to the twentieth power) when referring to memory; in all other cases it is 1,000,000 (ten to the sixth power).

GB is 1,073,741,824 bytes (two to the thirtieth power) when referring to memory; in all other cases it is 1,000,000,000 (ten to the ninth power).

Standard Features include:

  • One 8MB Memory Card on the 320
  • One 1.44MB 3.5-inch Diskette Drive
  • One 160MB 3.5-inch Internal Direct Attached Disk Drive* on the 320
  • Four Micro Channel Feature Card Slots are available for expansion (Three are available on the 320H, one slot is used for the SCSI card)
  • Standard Device Ports/Connectors:
    • Keyboard/Speaker
    • Mouse
    • Tablet
    • Two Serial Ports
    • Parallel Printer Port

* A minimum of 320 MB of disk is required when used as a 7012. As a client, the 320 and 320H has limited user disk space available and is dependent on a LAN-attached IBM AIX server for data and program storage. Configured with 240MB of disk storage or more, the 320 is a powerful stand-alone graphics workstation, with optional LAN and other communications capabilities. The 320 and 320H are the entry servers in the RS/6000 family when equipped with a minimum of 320MB of internal disk storage.

One optional 3.5-inch disk may be internally installed. Either 160-MB, 320-MB or 400-MB disks may be internally installed. Additional external media devices may be attached. For a detailed description of these products reference the Sales Manual for the:

The Operator Panel contains a Key operated Mode Switch, Reset Pushbutton, and Three 7-segment LED indicators. The LED indicators can be rotated by 90 degrees to provide the proper orientation for the vertical or horizontal position. The key operated Mode switch has three positions and helps to provide logic security to the system. The lock helps to provide physical security and prevent cover removal when in the locked position.

Model conversions

Customers of the 320 will be able to convert their systems to the new 320E. IBM disk configurations supported by the 320 upon announcement will be supported by the 320E.

A minimum of 16MB of memory is a prerequisite for the 320E processor upgrade.

All Micro Channel cards supported by the 320 will be supported by the 320E.

All Micro Channel cards, external and internal devices supported by the 320H upon announcement will be supported by the 320E.

System performance of the 320E relative to the new 320H will depend upon the installed disks. Customers whose converted machine contains only IBM disk configurations supported by the new 320H should not experience performance degradation. Retention in the converted machines of IBM disks not supported by the new 320H will yield a degradation in system performance relative to the new 320H, varying with the nature of customer's applications (compute intensive versus I/O intensive). This offers high a degree of flexibility in increasing the performance level of the system and helping the customers with compute intensive applications to take advantage of the performance the new processor while protecting their investment in disks.

The Model Conversion MES contains at least the following items and is ordered through the configurator.

  • Processor replacement
  • New "Logo"
  • Installation instructions
  • New Diagnostics

Note: Parts removed become the Property of IBM.

Note: The customer MUST order additional memory features if the system to be converted does not contain the minimum of 16MB of memory. The existing internal disk(s) can be migrated to the new 320E.

The Rack Mountable Remote Asynchronous Node 16-Port EIA-232 (RAN) is a modified version of the existing 16-port Remote Async Node (feature #8130 or #8134) in an industry-standard 19-inch rack mount chassis to allow simpler installation and ease-of-use. Like the existing RAN, it can also be configured as a desktop device.

As an additional benefit, the new metal chassis meets FCC Class B/CISPR B when used with similarly rated RS/6000 host to meet the needs of customers with these requirements.

The RANs provide 16 ports of EIA-232 capability with full modem controls on each port and are connected to the 128-port Async Controller (Micro Channel or ISA versions) residing in the host. RANs are connected in daisy-chain fashion up to 8 RANs per 128-port Async Controller (either version).

The new rack-mountable RAN offers these enhanced features:

  • Industry-standard 19-inch rack mountable chassis (can be configured for stacking on a desktop or mounted in a 19-inch rack).
  • Meets FCC Class B/CISPR B when used with similarly rated RS/6000 host.
  • All RJ-45 connectors are now on the front panel, greatly enhancing cable management.
  • The DB-15 synchronous connectors (cabling from host to RAN and between RANs) and the power cord and switch are located on the rear panel.
  • Power supply is self contained within the unit.

The new rack-mountable RAN offers these same features as the existing RAN product:

  • Identical function and support as existing 16-port Remote Async Node (RAN), feature #8130 or #8134.
  • Operation of 16 to 128 ports by supporting up to 8 RANs (4 per synchronous line) with either a Micro Channel or ISA host adapter.
  • Ability to monitor individual port operation, synchronous line station, and other diagnostics from front panel.
  • Built-in diagnostics can test ports independent of RS/6000 host.

(#2720) Fiber Distributed Data Interface Adapter

The Fiber Distributed Data Interface adapter uses FDDI (Fiber Distributed Data Interface), a LAN communications technology that uses optical cabling designed for a line speed of up to 100 Megabits/sec.

FDDI is designed to support the TCP/IP protocol, and supports NFS over TCP/IP. The FDDI implementation supports ANSI standard X3T9.5, with the exception that Station Management (SMT) function is limited to Agent support only. A programming interface (API) is provided for the device driver.

Fiber optic cable is designed to be immune to electromagnetic interference (EMI). Therefore, using fiber technology may prevent jamming by high power emissions. Additionally, fiber optics do not emit electromagnetic radiation (EMR). This feature enhances security, since it helps prevent eavesdropping.

The RS/6000 Fiber Distributed Data Interface Single Ring Adapter provides a single attach station (SAS) option and attaches to the FDDI Network's primary ring directly or via an external FDDI Concentrator. Connection via an external FDDI Concentrator isolates the workstations from the primary ring and protects the network from routine station on/off cycles and individual station failures.

Each FDDI adapter requires one Micro Channel card slot. A maximum of four #2720 adapters per system is supported. The FDDI card requires Multi-Mode (62.5/125 Micron) FDDI optical fiber jumper cables. The FDDI jumper cables are available in five standard lengths of 4 meter (12 feet), 7 meter (20 feet), 15 meter (50 feet), 31 meter ( 100 feet) and 61 meter (200 feet) or custom lengths in one foot increments. They are available with MIC, FC, ST, or SC connectors.

For more information about the jumper cables, planning, design, and installation of optical fiber cabling systems, refer to IBM Publication GA27-3943, "IBM Cabling System Optical Fiber Installation and Planning Guide."

Jumper cables are the responsibility of the customer and may be ordered from your local authorized IBM cabling distributor or by calling 1-800-IBM-2468 in the United States. For EMEA customers, cables are available from Montpellier through CE offerings.

(#2722) Fiber Distributed Data Interface Dual Ring Upgrade Kit

(For IBM US, No Longer Available as of May 20, 1996)

In the event of failure, this type of attachment allows the wrapping of the primary to the secondary ring for high network availability and problem isolation. This dual attach (DAS) option can also attach to concentrator ports as a single attached station or a dual homing station. Each #2722 FDDI adapter requires one Micro Channel card slot. (A #2720 and #2722 requires two card slots) A maximum of two #2722 adapters per system is supported.
