Description

IBM's innovative PowerPC* technology delivers breakthrough value and performance to the 250 Series workstations and servers. The floating- point performance of these systems makes them a natural for entry, technical engineering/scientific applications, while their integer performance and powerful transaction processing capabilities provide a good environment for running business applications. These cost- effective, entry-level systems are ideal in multiuser environments and are binary compatible with other members of the RS/6000 family and support both AIX Version 4 and AIX Version 3.2.5. The Model 250 is versatile, providing paging over LANs and remote IPL, and can be easily enhanced with optional features and supported devices.

Base Model Configuration 250

The entry POWERstation/POWERserver 250 can function without a fixed disk in a LAN environment or, with a fixed disk and diskette drive added, in a stand-alone environment. Customers can upgrade memory and add features to enhance the system.

The standard features of the POWERstation/POWERserver 250 are:

Note: Standard with the POWERstation/POWERserver 250 series is the ability to attach the Ethernet controller to either Thick or Twisted Pair Ethernet media. For connection to Thick (10 Base 5) Ethernet media, the output connector is a Thick 15-pin D-shell "slide-latch" type that is compatible with IEEE 802.3 Section 7.6. For connection to Twisted Pair (10 Base T) Ethernet media, use the additional converter that is shipped standard with the POWERserver 250 series. For connection to Thin (10 Base 2) Ethernet media, use an optional external Transceiver (Feature Code #4223).

The base configuration model of the POWERstation/POWERserver 250 series.

Business Solutions

The POWERstation/POWERserver 250 series supports customers' business objectives by providing a high-performance, desktop workstation/server solution for compute-intensive technical applications or multi-user commercial server applications. With either the 2D GXT100 graphics adapter or GXT150 graphics adapter the POWERstation/POWERserver 250 series workstation models are ideally suited to 2D environments where high-performance and low cost-per-seat are important. With the AIXwindows 3D feature, Softgraphics support is provided to enable full- function 3D graphics capability on all supported graphics adapters, including the GXT100 and GXT150 graphics adapters. This feature provides cost-effective and scalable graphics performance and consistent functions for the entry 3D environments. When configured with either a POWER Gt4e or GTO Accelerator graphics adapter and appropriate software, more demanding 3D applications are enabled. POWERstation 25S, with its standard 1 GB disk drive and 8-port adapter, is a cost-effective entry server for retail, branch banking, wholesale and plant floor applications. Memory capacity of up to 256 MB and internal fixed disk capacity of up to 2 GB, coupled with a variety of input/output devices, graphics, and communications features, are available to configure the system as a powerful, entry POWERstation or POWERserver for a wide range of business solutions.

The POWERstation/POWERserver 250 series desktop workstations utilize IBM's PowerPC Architecture* and are binary compatible with the IBM RS/6000 POWERstation/POWERserver family of systems, with application portability and high throughput levels. All AIX/6000 applications written for POWER-based RS/6000s (models available before 9/21/93) will run on the PowerPC 601-based* RS/6000s 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.) The POWERstation/POWERserver 250 series with AIX/6000 Version 3.2.5, conforms to many industry-standards in the open system environment -- a key factor to enable customers to develop and port applications.

Investment Protection

The POWERstation/POWERserver 250 series, with AIX/6000 3.2.5, offers interoperability with other IBM and other vendor host systems, expanding the usefulness of those systems and maximizing the utility of the 250 series. Any POWERstation/POWERserver 220 or 230 series machine can be upgraded to a 25E. The POWERstation/POWERserver 250 series, with its PowerPC 601* processor offers competitive fixed-point processing and floating-point processing for the entry workstation market. The POWERstation/POWERserver 250 series can be configured as a diskless or dataless system with integrated SCSI-2 and Ethernet controllers. Because of its optional feature offerings it can also be configured as an independent workstation, a file or communications server, or a distributed system.

User Productivity

The POWERstation/POWERserver 250 series supports AIXwindows* Environment/6000, which is based on the MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) X window System, and includes a graphical user interface based on OSF/Motif**. Through the use of industry-standard OSF/Motif, savings may be realized in end-user training and application development. Additionally, savings in hardware may be realized through the use of LAN-attached Xstations, to reduce cost per seat.

AIXwindows Environment/6000, based on the versatile OSF/Motif graphics user interface, provides the user with icons to represent files, printers and system objects, and allows the user to manipulate the file system through the icons. Support for InfoExplorer*, the online documentation aid, offers the user flexible access to online documentation using task index, hypertext jump points, and search features. These features allow users to become participant quickly, minimizing training and reducing costs.

Growth Enablement

The POWERstation/POWERserver 250 series is designed to grow with the customer's requirements. Memory can be increased to a maximum of 256MB. A maximum of seven SCSI devices (including optional internal fixed disk drive) can be attached.

The integrated SCSI-2 controller attaches up to seven SCSI-1 devices or four SCSI-2 devices. One internal disk drive may be installed in the POWERstation/POWERserver 250 series. A 200MB, 540MB, 1GB, or 2GB drive can be installed. Additional external devices may be attached, or by using Differential High-Performance External I/O Controllers (#2420) and external DASD Expansion Units, up to 30 GB of total disk storage may be configured. The integrated Ethernet controller and the PowerPC 601* local processor bus slot for graphics adapters allow the user to have a LAN attachment and additional I/O devices and graphics without utilizing any of the Micro Channel* slots.

Two Micro Channel feature card slots (form factor 3) are available for additional features such as a token-ring adapter, communications processors and high-performance 3D graphics processors.

System Management

A system installation and management facility is provided as part of the operating system. The System Management Interface Tool (SMIT) facilitates the performance of system management tasks, such as software installation and configuration, device configuration and management, problem determination, and storage management. Support is also provided for the use of an ASCII terminal as the system console as well as remote installation of the system on a LAN.

AIX/6000 is designed to meet the NCSC (National Computer Security Center) trusted computer system evaluation criteria class C2 security support requirements.

Hardware requirements

These are the requirements for operating the POWERstation/POWERserver 250 series:

Software requirements

Programming Requirements of the POWERstation/POWERserver 250 series: AIX Version 3.2.5 for RS/6000, at the level, including any updates, that is current at the time the POWERstation/POWERserver 250 series is available, is required for operating the POWERstation/POWERserver 250 series.

Small disk configurations (200 MB) may be dependent on a LAN connection, based on the fixed-disk storage requirement of the specific software selected. Refer to Software Offerings in the publication, "IBM RS/6000 System Overview" (GC23-2406) for assistance in planning fixed-disk requirements.

Programming Requirements of GXT100 graphics adapter and GXT150 graphics adapter, POWER GT4e and GTO Accelerator: AIX Version 3.2.5 for RS/6000, at the level, including any updates, that is current at the time the POWERstation/POWERserver 250 series is available. Also, AIXwindows Environment/6000 Version 1.2.5 (support for X11R5) or higher is required for installation of these graphics adapters. For customers requiring 3D capability on a "2D" graphics adapter, the AIXwindows/3D feature is required.

AIX/6000 applications written for POWER-based RS/6000s will run on the new POWERstation/POWERserver 250 series 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 a compiler option to exploit the PowerPC* technology may not function properly on systems that do not employ that technology. Customers with any combination of POWER-, POWER2-, and PowerPC 601-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 POWER or common mode options available in the new XL compilers or any other compilers that support those options.

For detailed information on adapters and devices, reference the publication: "IBM RS/6000 Hardware Technical Reference - Adapters and Devices" (SA23-2646).

(#2404, #2405) 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 (#2404) and a guest card which provides hardware assisted video data compression or decompression (#2405). 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.

(#2405) Compression/Decompression Guest Card

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

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

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 base card.

The Video I/O adapter supports M-JPEG compression and capture of video in to CIF or full size frames with concurrent monitoring of the video. The video may be viewed in an X-window in 8 bit dithered or 24 bit RGB on a supported graphics adapter at CIF size (320 x 240 NTSC. 384 x 288 PAL).

Feature 3608 is a full-price feature used to order a POWERdisplay 20 (featuring a Trinitron** CRT with a maximum viewable image size of 486mm (19.1 inches) measured diagonally) for any applicable RS/6000 model.

The POWERdisplay 20 is a high-resolution graphics raster scan color display. The IBM POWERdisplay 20-inch monitor has an actual viewable screen size of 19.1 inches when measured diagonally. It is intended for high-resolution graphics applications and supports an Analog RGB and separate horizontal and vertical sync.

The POWERdisplay 20 provides sharp, bright, realistic colors with minimum distortion. It offers a premium high-contrast anti-reflective multi-layer bonded panel that results in strikingly clear images. It virtually eliminates static discharge from the front of the screen. The POWERdisplay 20 adheres to the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) display power management signaling (DPMS) process. This function allows the display to reduce power consumption to 10 watts when the workstation power is off, allowing it to meet requirements for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) "Energy Star" program. The POWERdisplay 20 meets ISO 9241 Part 3 recommendations for VDT ergonomics and also meets Very Low Frequency Magnetic Field (VLMF), Extremely Low Frequency Magnetic Field (ELMF), Very Low Electrical Field (VLEF), and Extremely Low Electrical Field (ELEF) emission standards.
