I/O Port Specifications

This section contains specifications and port pinout information for the I/O ports of the deskside system. The ports are discussed in the following sections:

Ethernet 10-100-1000 Base-T Port

The deskside system auto-selects the Ethernet port speed and type when the deskside system is booted, based on what it is connected to. The connector is a standard RJ-45 female. Figure A-1 shows the Ethernet port.

Serial Console Port

The deskside system features one 9-pin serial console port. Figure A-3 shows the serial console port. The port is capable of transferring data at rates as high as 230 KB/s. Other features of the port include:

  • Programmable data, parity, and stop bits

  • Programmable baud rate and modem control

Serial Port Adapter Cables

The deskside system's serial ports conform to the PC standard pinout for EIA standard RS-232 signals. The Linux drivers available for serial devices will vary, and no assumption is made regarding hardware or software support.

The purpose of the adapter cable is to allow the deskside system to use standard PC serial devices. Table A-6 shows the adapter cable pinout for a standard PC or Macintosh serial port.
