IBM PERSONAL SYSTEM/2 (TM) MODEL 55 SX
The  Model 55 SX enhances the Personal System/2 family of systems
by offering 32-bit microprocessor compatibility at a price  which
is  affordable  to  16-bit  80286  users.  The  desktop system is
highlighted by the Micro Channel(TM) Architecture with a  16  MHz
80386SX  32-bit  microprocessor,  high density memory technology,
and a wide range of integrated features. With the  capability  of
supporting  up  to  16MB of high speed real memory, 30MB and 60MB
storage,  advanced  graphics,  and  an  optional   80387SX   Math
Co-Processor,   this   system  provides  significant  performance
improvements for 80286 users. The systems maintain  compatibility
with  most  existing  8/16-bit software for IBM personal computer
systems such as DOS and OS/2. The model  8555-X61  only  will  be
supported   by   a   future   release   of  Advanced  Interactive
Executive(tm) Personal System/2.  The availability date  of  this
release will be announced in 4TH quarter of 1989.

DESCRIPTION
The IBM Personal System/2 Model 55  SX  offers  a  new  level  of
price/  performance  in  a  desktop  unit.  The system features a
80386SX microprocessor and 2MB of high speed memory expandable to
16MB with memory options.The 386SX microprocessor is a 32-bit CPU
with a 16-bit external data bus  and  a  24-bit  address  bus.The
386SX  CPU  brings the high performance 32-bit software operating
on the Intel 386(tm) architecture to mid-range systems.
The 8555 comes standard with:
o 1.44MB, 3.5-inch diskette drive
o Fixed disk drive with integrated controller
o Keyboard port
o Pointing device port
o Serial/asynchronous port
o Parallel port
o Video Graphics Array (VGA) port
o Three 16-bit I/O slots
The VGA port supports graphics and text modes including 640 x 480
graphics, 320 x 200 graphics in 256 colors, and 720 x  400  text,
and yet maintains compatibility with CGA and EGA modes.
The fixed disk drive has a capacity of 30MB or 60MB.

The  system  has  two  levels  of  BIOS  that  total  128KB.  The
Compatibility BIOS (CBIOS) with memory addressability  of  up  to
one  megabyte provides compatible support for current application
programs. An additional version  of  BIOS,  Advanced  BIOS(ABIOS)
provides  support  for  multitasking  operating  systems  and has
extended memory addressability up to 16 megabytes.
The high level of feature integration on the system board reduces
the requirement for optional adapters. Memory on  the  system  is
provided  by  two  memory  connectors.  On  the  8555-X31 and the
8555-X61 one of the connectors is populated by a 2MB module.  1MB
or  2MB  can  be  added to increase memory to 3MB or 4MB. The IBM @
PS/2 4MB Memory Module Kit (PN 34F2933, FC 2933) is supported  on @
the  PS/2 Model 55SX.  One 4MB Memory Module Kit can be installed @
on the system board without removal of memory.  Installation of a @
second 4MB Kit will require the removal of the 2MB module.    The @
optional  80387SX Math Co-Processor provides enhanced performance @
in arithmetic calculations. In addition, the system  is  designed
for easy installation and includes security features in BIOS/CMOS
and an external keylock.
Additional  features  of the system unit include three 16-bit I/O
slots (one 16-bit bus slot with video extension), a 90-watt power
supply, a time and date clock with battery backup,  and  the  IBM
Enhanced Personal Computer Keyboard.
New Feature
IBM   Personal   System/2   16MHz   80387SX   Math   Co-Processor
(#4676)(27F4676) THE 16MHZ  80387SX  Math  Co-Processor  provides
additional  processing  power  and  performance  for  application
programs requiring many or  repetitive  arithmetic  calculations.
The  80386SX/80387SX  conforms  to  the  ANSI/IEEE floating-point
standard and runs most applications, written for the 80386/80387,
80286/80287, and 8088/8087 based systems, unmodified. This option
is installed in the Math Co-Processor socket on the system  board
and  does  not  require  an  expansion  slot. Maximum: One. Field
Installation: Yes.  Customer Setup: Yes.

NOTES:
1.  Usability  problems  on  monochrome displays as tested. OK on
colour displays.

2. 3270 Workstation Program 1.10 was only tested under DOS  3.30,
not  as  shown in Test Plan with DOS 4.01, as it is not supported
for use with DOS 4.01.
3. PC Local Area Network 1.23 was tested with DOS 3.30, it is not
supported with DOS 4.01.
4. Card was not available in time for testing.
5. The Keyboard Lock Program is not supported with OS/2.
LIMITATIONS:  The  8555  supports  a  maximum  of 16MB of memory.
128KB of memory is used for high performance BIOS. An  additional
384KB is reserved for system use in systems with 16MB of memory.
PLANNING INFORMATION
CUSTOMER  RESPONSIBILITIES:  The  8555  is designated as customer
setup.
CABLE ORDERS: There are no cabling requirements, other  than  for
system  power  and  display connections. Cables are provided with
the system unit, display, and keyboard, and the instructions  are
provided as part of initial setup.
INSTALLABILITY:  By  following  the  setup instructions, the user
attaches the keyboard and peripherals and inserts  the  Reference
Diskette.  Power  is  then turned on and Set Configuration is run
after  the  computer  has  successfully  completed  its   initial
self-tests.
PROBLEM   DETERMINATION:   If  a  failure  is  found  at  initial
installation, an instruction will appear on the  screen.  If  the
test  is  successfully  completed, the system attempts to load an
operating system from the A drive. If an operating system is  not
found,  the  system  attempts  to  load one from the C fixed disk
drive. If an operating system is not  found,  the  user  will  be
prompted  to  insert  a  diskette via an icon. A final default is
provided through the use of a  ROM-loaded  BASIC  interpreter  as
explained in the Quick Reference manual.
PACKAGING:
The 8555 will be packaged as follows:
