Description

If you need advanced graphics functionality and high-levels of compute power, then you need to look at the RS/6000 Model 42T graphics workstation. The Model 42T introduces the PowerPC 604 microprocessor with its high integer and floating-point performance into the RS/6000 family to offer a level of performance previously the domain of high-end products. This allows you to execute your applications with better response times and to solve problems, especially complicated ones, much faster.

The Model 42T provides flexible features that include internal CD-ROM, tape drives, large disk files, system memory, Micro Channel* I/O cards and integrated Ethernet** controller.

Support for a wide range of graphics adapters let you select the graphics performance that's right for you. The POWER GXT150L graphics adapter, standard on the Model 42T, provides excellent 2D performance through a single card adapter that attaches directly to a dedicated local graphics bus slot. This frees one of the expansion Micro Channel slots for other devices.

This same slot also supports the POWER GXT500 and POWER GXT500D graphics accelerators which bring new levels of 3D performance to the 42T. The POWER GXT1000* graphics accelerator, the highest level of 3D graphics performance available for the Model 42T, is also supported. The GXT500 and GXT500D provide native support for the OpenGL and graPHIGS* 3D Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and additionally support the IBM GL 3.2 and PEX APIs. PEX is supported on the GXT500 and GXT500D through IBM's software implementation and is not accelerated in the hardware.

For the OpenGL, GL 3.2, graPHIGS and PEX APIs, the GXT500 offers support for 8-bit double-buffered color, and the GXT500D offers support for 8 and 24-bit double-buffered color and single-buffered support for 24-bit (true) color. The GXT500D additionally supports 12-bit Z-buffer and overlay support. Stereo viewing is also supported on both GXT500 and GXT500D. The GXT500 and GXT500D are well-suited for a wide variety of 3D applications.

Product Positioning

The 42W/42T is positioned as the high performance follow-on to the popular 41W/41T RS/6000 workstation. It introduces the PowerPC 604 processor with its high integer and floating point performance into the RS/6000 workstation product line. The 42W/42T is a follow-through on an earlier statement of direction that advanced processor performance would be available for the 41W/41T. Customers can upgrade to the 42W/42T via a planar board upgrade as the two machines share the same mechanical package. The 42W/42T has the same number of bays for hard files and media as the 41W/41T and supports the same number of Micro Channel slots. The 42T is easier to order and includes a P70 Color Monitor in the configuration. The 42W is identical to the 42T but without a standard monitor, allowing customers to use existing monitors or procure their monitors from other sources, including the IBM PC line of display monitors.

The 42W/42T and the model upgrade require the latest level of AIX Version 4.1 and are not supported on AIX Version 3.

The 42W/42T supports a wide range of graphics adapters. The standard GXT150L adapter provides leadership 2D performance through a single card adapter that plugs directly into the local bus graphics slot without using one of the Micro Channel slots. This slot also supports the new GXT500 and GXT500D Graphics Adapters which bring a new level of 3D performance to Models 41W/41T and 42W/42T. The GXT1000 and accelerator is also supported and provides the highest level of 3D graphics performance available for the 41W/41T and 42W/42T models.

The GXT500 and GXT500D provide customers with leadership 3D graphics for the RS/6000 Models 42T, 42W, 41T and 41W. Coupled with IBM's implementation of the OpenGL**, PEX, PHIGS and IBM GL 3.2 3D Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), they provide customers with support for a wide variety of popular 3D applications.

The GXT500 and GXT500D combine the advantages of using the PowerPC* processor to drive the graphics geometry pipeline with the power of the GXT500 and GXT500D raster engine to provide customers with an exceptionally cost-effective platform for midrange 3D graphics applications. They also support program development in the OpenGL, PEX, PHIGS and GL 3.2 APIs. The GXT500 and GXT500D further establish IBM's leadership in providing a wide range of product offerings designed for the support of open APIs such as OpenGL. IBM continues to be a active member of the Architecture Review Board (ARB) for OpenGL and is one of the leading vendors in providing a complete family of graphics adapters designed to provide support for the OpenGL API.

The GXT500 and GXT500D provide native support for the OpenGL and graPHIGS 3D Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and additionally support the IBM GL 3.2 and PEX APIs. PEX is supported on the GXT500 and GXT500D through IBM's software implementation and is not accelerated in hardware. For the OpenGL, GL 3.2, graPHIGS and PEX APIs, the GXT500 offers support for 8-bit double-buffered color and the GXT500D offers support for 8-and 24-bit double-buffered color. For OpenGL and GL 3.2, the GXT500 additionally supports 12-bit double-buffered color and single- buffered support for 24-bit (true) color. The GXT500D additionally supports 12-bit double-buffered color for OpenGL and GL 3.2. Both include a 24-bit Z-buffer and overlay support. Stereo viewing is also supported on both the GXT500 and GXT500D.

The GXT500 and GXT500D are well-suited for a wide variety of 3D applications including:

  • Computer Aided Design and Manufacturing
  • Industrial Design
  • Structural Analysis
  • Molecular Modeling
  • Geophysical Analysis
  • Scientific Visualization

The GXT500 and GXT500D additionally provide customers with four hardware color maps, a feature which is required by most popular 3D applications.

Hardware Requirements

These are the requirements for operating Models 42T and 42W:

  • A RS/6000 display adapter and keyboard (standard).
  • For standalone configurations, a disk drive and diskette are required. Diagnostics must be run from a diskette drive, CD-ROM or disk drive for standalone systems.

Software Requirements

The new models 42T and 42W and the model upgrade require the latest release (4.1.3) of IBM's AIX Version 4.1.

Customers migrating from AIX Version 3 should consult AIX Version 4 'Operating Environment' to determine migration procedures, application support, and compatibility.

AIX applications written for POWER-based RS/6000 workstations will run on Models 42T and 42W without recompilation. (The only exception to this statement would be applications written using kernel extensions which use certain privileged Assembler instructions. IBM is not aware of any applications using these instructions.) Additional performance can be achieved by recompiling with the latest versions of the IBM XL compilers to further exploit the PowerPC technology.

Applications compiled using compiler options to exploit either the PowerPC technology or Power2 technology may not function properly on systems that do not employ those technologies. Customers with any combination of POWER*-, POWER2-and PowerPC 601*-based or 604-based systems may continue to run their applications unmodified. New applications and recompilation of existing applications for use in a mixed processor environment should be compiled using the common mode options available in the new XL compilers or any other compilers that support those options.

Technical Information for POWER GXT500 and GXT500D

Technical Description - POWER GXT500 and GXT500D: The POWER GXT500 and GXT500D are single card graphics adapters that attach directly to the local 60x bus in the RS/6000 Models 42T, 42W, 41T and 41W. These adapters provide leadership 3D graphics performance as well as exceptional 2D performance.

The availability of the GXT500 and GXT500D continue to implement IBM's strategy of offering a complete family of graphics solutions for the RS/6000 workstation users at a variety of price and performance points.

IBM now offers three different classes of 3D graphics adapters:

  Class   I - which does not provide unique hardware for 3D graphics
              operations but only provides a frame buffer and all
              graphics processing is done by the system CPU.
 
Class II- which provides hardware rasterization for 3D graphics functions and relies on the system CPU for geometry processing.  
Class III- which performs all 3D graphics processing including hardware support for rasterization and 3D geometry.  

The GXT500 and GXT500D are IBM's first implementation of a class II graphics adapter. These class II solutions utilize IBM's powerful PowerPC processor to drive the graphics geometry pipeline and the new GXT500 and GXT500D to perform 3D rasterization of graphics functions. The benefits derived from this design are scalability of graphics performance with CPU performance and lower cost 3D graphics hardware.

The GXT500 and GXT500D provide support for state-of-the-art graphics functions like hidden-line/surface removal, antialiasing, Gouraud shading, depth cueing, transparency, texture mapping and accumulation. They support display resolutions of 1280x1024 and 1024x768, including support for monitors that comply with Part 3 of the ISO 9241 ergonomic standard. This standard provides users with improved viewing, reduced- flicker images, minimized reflections and sharper characters.

Stereo viewing is supported on both the GXT500 and GXT500D. Stereo viewing is a method used to add depth to an image rendered on the 2D surface of a monitor. The method supported is the Crystal Eyes** system by StereoGraphics Corp. A pair of LCD glasses and an IR transmitter are required and must be purchased separately. Notice: When installing or using a StereoGraphics transmitter for 3D viewing, use only a transmitter that was manufactured for attaching to the IBM GXT500 or GXT500D graphics adapters. It has a BNC and DB-9 connector. Other models of the transmitter have only a DB-9 connector and will not work with the GXT500 and GXT500D.

AIX Version 4.1 is required for support of the GXT500 or GXT500D on the Models 42T and 42W. On the Models 41T and 41W either AIX/6000 Version 3.2.5 or AIX Version 4.1 is required.

The GXT500 and GXT500D Support:

  • The display of up to 16.7 million Simultaneous Colors from a pallet of approximately 16.7 million
  • 60 to 77Hz Refresh Modes (ISO 9241 Part 3 Compliant on appropriate displays)
  • Stereo Viewing
  • Single Card, 60x Bus Attachment
  • Four Hardware Color Maps

The GXT500 has an 80 Bit Plane Frame Buffer configured as follows:

  • 8/12-Bit Double-Buffered (DB), 24-Bit Single-Buffered (SB) Color
  • 24-Bit Z-Buffer
  • 8-Bit Overlay
  • 8-Bit Stencil
  • 8-Bit Window Ids
  • 8-Bit Utility

The GXT500D has a 128 Bit Plane Frame Buffer configured as follows:

  • 8/12/24-Bit Double-Buffered (DB) Color
  • 24-Bit Z-Buffer
  • 8-Bit DB Overlay
  • 8-Bit Stencil
  • 8-Bit Window Ids
  • 8-Bit Utility
  • 8-Bit DB Alpha

A Maximum of one local bus GXT500 or GXT500D graphics adapter per system can be installed in the Models 42T, 42W, 41T and 41W.

POWER GXT500 and GXT500D Software Requirements

Attachment of the GXT500 or GXT500D to Models 41W/41T requires AIX Version 4.1.3 or AIX/6000 Version 3.2.5 with the appropriate PTF which is shipped with the graphics adapter.

Attachment of the GXT500 or GXT500D to Models 42W/42T requires AIX Version 4.1.3.

Customers requiring OpenGL or GL 3.2 should select the "OpenGL and GL 3.2 Version 4.1.3 for AIX" LPP (5696-939) and customers requiring PHIGS or PEX should select the "PEX and PHIGS Version 4.1.3 for AIX" LPP (5696-907).

(#2404) IBM Ultimedia Video I/O Adapter

(For IBM US, No Longer Available as of January 8, 1998)

The Ultimedia Video I/O adapter for the RS/6000 provides a broad based solution for video enablement on the RS/6000. The Video I/O adapter is comprised of two cards: a base Micro Channel feature card which provides video in and video out and an optional guest card which provides hardware assisted video data compression or decompression. Each card is separately orderable; however, it is required to have the base card installed as a prerequisite to the guest card. The Video I/O adapter requires only one Micro Channel slot of space with either the base card or the base and guest card installed.

The Ultimedia Video I/O adapter provides support for numerous multimedia applications requiring video. Support is provided for these application requirements: still or full motion video, NTSC, PAL or S-video standards and YUV or RGB color spaces. A variety of image sizes are supported in the video capture mode and one busmaster DMA channel is offered to enhanced system thruput. A further benefit is the savings obtained through the use of the compression and decompression algorithm provided on the guest card which provides considerable assistance with regards to transporting video data internally in the system or across the network, as only the compressed data need be sent.. The compression algorithm supported in hardware is M-JPEG, a universal video compression/decompression format. The compression/ decompression hardware is fully programmable to allow the user to select the compression level desired.

The Ultimedia Video I/O adapter provides the required support for applications such as multimedia enabled training, authoring, desktop publishing, video collaboration (still or live), and video distribution.

Details of Supported Functions

Video Formats Supported

  • Analog Video In: NTSC, PAL or S-video
  • Analog Video Out NTSC, PAL or S-video
  • Digital Video YUV 4:2:2 (16 bit) RGB (8 bit) RGB (24 bit)

Base Card Functions

The base card supports several programmable functions directly and additionally provides the system level interface for the guest compression/decompression card. The functions provided on the base card include: analog to digital conversion with video capture support, digital to analog conversion with video out support, selectable color space conversion for video in, monitoring of incoming video images with a supported IBM graphics adapter and/or an external video monitor, scaling the size of the incoming video image, and DMA transfer of the digital image data to and from the card.

  • Video Capture: The base card will provide video capture on a frame by frame (or field by field) basis of "live" video from a single source. The captured video is converted from NTSC (PAL) to YUV. The YUV digital video may be converted to 24 bit RGB, 8 bit dithered RGB or remain YUV. Selection of S-video or CVBS formats is enabled.
  • Video Output: The base card supports transfer of digital YUV data. If the guest card is installed, both digital YUV and compressed J-PEG data are supported from the system to be output as PAL or NTSC in both S-video or CVBS format. The Video I/O adapter accepts input from the system frame sizes as shown in table #3.
  • Scaling: Captured video input may be scaled down from a maximum NTSC or PAL resolution (640 x 480, 768 x 576) in even increments to the minimum resolution desired.
  • Video Monitoring: The monitoring of incoming video data is supported with an IBM supported graphics adapter and/or a video monitor. The following image sizes as shown in table #1 are supported for viewing with a supported graphics adapter.
8 BIT DITHERED MODE SELECTED ON GRAPHICS ADAPTER AND VIDEO I/O

Table #1 Video Monitoring with a supported graphics adapter  

Compression/Decompression Guest Card

The compression/decompression Guest card supports the M-JPEG algorithm in either the compression mode or decompression mode. This card supports full motion video capture or video out utilizing the enablements provided by the base video card mentioned previously. Video monitoring concurrent with M-JPEG compression is supported as on the base card.

When compression is required, the quality or compression information is provided by the user through software interface whereas the decompression file sent to the adapter contains the necessary information for software to automatically interpret for the user the necessary command and control information.

Video out images may be accepted as either full size NTSC or PAL or CIF size NTSC or PAL from the system. Scaling of the CIF size images to full size NTSC, PAL or S-video images for video out is featured through support on the Guest card.

The Video I/O adapter supports M-JPEG compression of various image sizes with concurrent monitoring as shown:

8 BIT DITHERED SELECTED OR FULL 24 BIT RGB ON GRAPHICS ADAPTER

The "7006 Service Guide" provides maintenance information specific to the 7006 system unit, adapters, and attached devices that do not have their own service information. It also includes Maintenance Analysis Procedures (MAPs) that are not common to other RS/6000 systems. The other publications contain information common to all system units and are used primarily for problem isolation by a customer's service specialist trained on the unit being serviced.

These publications are intended to be used in the customer's enterprise by the customer's own service specialists, and not by IBM Service personnel.

Three wrap plugs are included in the Service Publications and Wrap Plugs Kit (#3750) for use in diagnostic testing of the following connections to the 7006 system unit:

  • RS-232 serial I/O port
  • parallel I/O port
  • integrated Ethernet (thick) output port.

(#6599) Optional Keyboard Cable with Speaker

(For IBM US, No Longer Available as of November 11, 1997)

  • Attributes provided:

    The Optional Keyboard Cable with Speaker (#6599) is being made available for those systems that require an external source for audible system queues. The Optional Keyboard Cable with Speaker is designed to be placed in-line with the Quiet Touch Keyboard -- it attaches to the system and the Quiet Touch Keyboard then plugs into the speaker assembly. The Optional Keyboard Cable with Speaker is one meter long and has a small speaker box at the end of the cable unit. This feature is available on systems (Micro Channel systems) that depended on an external speaker source in their keyboard. Purchase is recommended with the Quiet Touch Keyboards for those systems needing an external audible queue (see the list of systems supporting #6599). The Quiet Touch Keyboard will work with or without the Optional Keyboard Cable with Speaker, but only when #6599 is connected will a system audible queue be provided.

(#7006) IBM Realtime Interface Co-Processor: Portmaster Adapter/A (1MB)

(For IBM US, No Longer Available as of December 1, 2000)

The IBM Realtime Interface Co-Processor Portmaster Adapter/A is a full-function Micro Channel bus master that complements and extends the capabilities of the IBM Realtime Interface Co-Processor family of adapters. Bus master extensions for the adapter include capabilities and services that address both adapter-to-system and adapter-to-adapter data transfers under Direct Memory Access (DMA) control. The adapter utilizes the multimaster capability of the Micro Channel bus architecture by taking control of the system unit bus and communicating directly with system memory or with other I/O adapters without interrupting the system unit processor.

With the selection of the appropriate Interface Board, full-duplex rates of up to 64 Kbps running simultaneously on each of eight ports or up to 2.048 Mbps for a single port can be achieved with the IBM Realtime Interface Co-Processor Portmaster Adapter/A. High-speed data rates for multiple ports rely on the use of DMA; two channels are provided for each port. All ports can be programmed for asynchronous, bit synchronous, or character synchronous protocols, using either DMA or interrupt mode.

Timer support is also provided. There may be up to 255 software timers set with increments ranging from 5 milliseconds to 327 seconds. A watchdog timer is also provided.

Cables for connection of I/O devices are FCs 7107, 7111 or 2706 or can be customer supplied.

Characteristics:

  • 12.5 MHz Intel 80186 microprocessor
  • Adapter-to-adapter and adapter-to-system Micro Channel bus master support
  • Up to eight serial I/O ports (asynchronous or synchronous) available through a family of Interface Boards and cables
  • Performance up to 64 Kbps full duplex for each of eight ports running concurrently

Service publications include:

  • "RS/6000 Service Guide" (SA23-2719)
  • "RS/6000 Diagnostics Information" (SA23-2765)
  • "RS/6000 Adapter, Devices and Cables Information" (SA23-2764)

The "7006 Service Guide" provides maintenance information specific to the 7006 system unit, adapters, and attached devices that do not have their own service information. It also includes Maintenance Analysis Procedures (MAPs) that are not common to other RS/6000 systems. The other publications contain information common to all system units and are used primarily for problem isolation by a customer's service specialist trained on the unit being serviced.

These publications are intended to be used in the customer's enterprise by the customer's own service specialists, and not by IBM Service personnel.

Three wrap plugs are included in the Service Publications and Wrap Plugs Kit (#3750) for use in diagnostic testing of the following connections to the 7006 system unit:

  • RS-232 serial I/O port
  • parallel I/O port
  • integrated Ethernet (thick) output port.

(#3751) - Diagnostic Media Kit

This kit contains AIX Version 4 system diagnostics on CD-ROM for 7006 machines, along with a test diskette, for use by the customer's service specialist (not by IBM Service personnel).
