    Description


    The IBM RISC System/6000 43P Series workstations are full-size desktop members of the RISC System/6000 family, based on the PowerPC 604 microprocessor.

    There are three models in the 43P Series based upon the different performance levels of the PowerPC 604 and L2 cache. The first model is based upon the 100MHz version of the PowerPC 604 and comes standard with a 256KB Asynchronous L2 cache. The other models are based upon the 120MHz and the 133MHz versions of the PowerPC 604 and come standard with a 512KB Synchronous L2 cache. The larger Synchronous L2 cache on the 120MHz and 133MHz versions provides significant performance advantages.

    The 43P Series delivers the advanced technology of the PowerPC processor, with its processing power, in a remarkable open system. Designed from the ground up to adhere to industry standards like Industry Standard Architecture (ISA), Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI), and Small Computer System Interface (SCSI-2), the 43P Series allows users to exploit PC components that adhere to these formats (AIX Device Drivers are required). The 43P Series provides an open, powerful system for solving today's and the complex problems of tomorrow.

    43P Series Software

    The 43P Series versions offer:


    • AIX Version 4.1 for Clients or AIX Version 4.1 for Servers (1 to 16 users) , or AIX Version 4.1 for Servers (Unlimited users)

    • Support for remote IPL and LAN installation and management system package

    • A subset of AIX 4.1 Client or AIX 4.1 Server may be pre-installed on all systems.

    Investment Protection

    The 43P Series grows with you as your computing needs grow. The system is designed for easy user installation of additional memory, disk, tape, and network communications to protect your initial investment.

    The 43P Series provides integrated graphics and Ethernet to provide a cost-effective package. It also provides three industry-standard ISA and two PCI or ISA shared slots that will accept a wide range of industry solutions (AIX Device Drivers are required).

    The 43P Series has three 3.5-inch bays and two 5.25-inch bays and is designed to use industry-standard hard disk and memory options that can be easily installed by the user.

    Product Positioning

    The RS/6000 43P Series offers PowerPC 604 processors in three different clock rates; 100MHz, 120MHz and 133MHz. The 43P Series is offered in a new mechanical package from the Model 40P with one more bay, providing a 5-bay, 5-slot configuration. The 43P Series is a series of three products where the low end 100MHz offers superior system performance, graphics performance, and hard disk expansion from the RISC System/6000 Model 40P. The Model 40P provides 4 bays and the Model 43P 5 bays. The maximum internal storage capacity of the 43P Series is 5GB while the 40P is 4GB. The Model 40P should still be considered where entry price is a key purchasing consideration.

    The second and third models of the RISC System/6000 43P Series, the 120MHz and the 133MHz execute the SPECint92 benchmarks faster than the RISC System/6000 Model 25W/T 66MHz and 80MHz versions. One difference between the Model 25W/T and the 43P Series is that the Model 25W/T supports AIX Version 3.2.5 and the 43P Series supports AIX Version 4.1.3.

    The disk capacities (from 540MB to 5GB) and the memory range (16MB to 192MB) is the same for all three models of the 43P Series compared to a range of 16MB to 256MB for the Model 25W/T.

    The 43P Series supports PCI adn ISA bus architectures with 2 PCI and 3 ISA expansion slots. The Model 25T is a Micro Channel** workstation.

    The RS/6000 43P Series is offered with RS/6000 and PC displays from 15" to 21". The primary resolution is 1280 x 1024.

    The 43P Series has the same graphics capability (IBM E15, S15 and IBM POWER GXT150P) as the Model 40P. Due to the superior tightly linked design of the IBM RS/6000 graphics, the performance of all these graphics adapters is faster than on the Model 40P. The E15 graphics is integrated on the motherboard, providing excellent X Window performance without using a PCI slot.

    Unlike other systems where a faster processor doesn't yield faster graphics, the faster CPUs also provide faster graphics on the 43P Series. Currently, the Model 43P Series is supported only by 2D hardware. Any 3D application such as CATIA**, Professional CADAM, or Pro-E** requires the IBM Softgraphics Licensed Program Product to emulate 3D hardware. This 3D function is supported only with the IBM POWER GXT150P Graphics Adapter. For this reason, the 25T should still be considered for those mechanical CAD applications where 3D hardware such as the Gt4e (a Micro Channel display adapter) is required.

    The existing RS/6000 Model 41T and the newly announced Model 42T provide 3D graphics hardware and should be selected for production 3D solids and advanced surfaces as well as visualization and simulation graphics.

    The RS/6000 43P Series competes against Sun's SPARCstation 5/85 and HPs 700 models 712/80 and 715/100. The Model 43P exceeds the HP 715/100's integer performance (SPECint92) by 60%, the HP 712/80's integer by almost 90%, and the Sun SPARCstation 5/85 by over a factor of 2.7 -- all of these systems are comparably configured*.

    *All configurations include 32MB memory and 1GB hard disk.

    Hardware Requirements

    A system unit order must contain as a minimum 7 order items:

    • System Model

    • Country Pack

    • Language Pack

    • Software Pack

    • Keyboard specify

    • One Hark Disk

    • Memory

    A monitor order must contain 3 order items:

    • Model code

    • Country Pack

    • Language Pack

    A separate software order on ISMS is not required to obtain the Licensed software products that are part of the System configurations.

    License material will be included in the software package shipped with the hardware.

    Software Requirements

    The following operating systems are available:

    • AIX Version 4.1 for Clients or AIX Version 4.1 for Servers (1-16 Users or Unlimited)

    Note: AIX Version 4.1.3 or later is required.

    Compatibility

    43P Series is designed to maintain compatibility with adapters and devices which fully support both the industry standard architecture (ISA) and Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) interfaces.

    AIX Version 4.1 supports the full range of applications on the 43P Series. As a general guide, applications requiring features or communication hardware that is not available with the 43P Series should not be executed, as well as any applications that exceed the physical limits of available memory and storage. Attachment of external SCSI devices can be used to extend the capability of the 43P Series workstation.

    Limitations

    • The 43P Series has 6 memory slots. The minimum memory configuration is 16MB and the maximum memory configuration is 192MB using 4MB, 8MB, 16MB or 32MB memory SIMMs installed in pairs.

    • The 3 ISA slots can accommodate 2 full and one short ISA cards.

    • The 43P Series supports 2 PCI or 2 additional ISA slots (one long and one short).

    • Maximum data transfer rate of the CD-ROM is 600KB/sec.

    • Maximum of 6 SCSI-2 devices can be attached (both internal and external).

    • Keyboards are PS/2-style keyboards.

    • Software Security Limitations:

      • Security modes may be set in software under password control. A mechanical keylock is provided to secure the cover only.

      • The External SCSI port can be disabled mechanically for security.
      Ports:

      • Serial ports use the compact 9-pin format in place of the 25-pin format.
      Diagnostics:

      • On Screen Diagnostics provide less cryptic messages than LEDs.

      • No LEDs for failure information or error code readout.

      • Diagnostics diskettes are provided with the system unit. Diagnostics cannot be run from the hard disk drive or while the normal operating system is running.
      Data Protection and Reliability:

      • Parity memory provides data protection. Previously announced RS/6000 models used Error Checking and Correction (ECC) memory.

      • A UPS or surge protector can increase data reliability in the event of a power outage. The Emergency Power Off Warning signal (EPOW) which alerts the operating system to power failures is not provided.

    • Requires AIX Version 4.1.3 or later.

    • The Ethernet coax connection will not work in the top short slot.

    • Audio support requires IBM Ultimedia Services Version 2.1 for AIX.

    • Display required for all configurations.

    • Diskless and Dataless system configurations are not supported.

    • AIX concurrent diagnostics do not work on the 43P series.

    • Server applications with high loads on the ISA Ethernet and Token Ring adapters may show degraded performance.

    • The X.25 Interface Co-processor card requires AIX 4.1 Server.

    • The 2.0 GByte SCSI-2 Hard Disk Drive is not supported in a 5.25 inch bay.

    Planning Information

    Customer Responsibilities

    The 43P Series is designated as a unit for customer setup. Customer setup, service and programming publications are available. Customer setup allowance is one day. By following the setup instructions, the user attaches the keyboard, peripherals, and power cable. The pre-installed operating system may be loaded and operational. If the operating system does not come up, system documentation steps the user through start up procedures.

    Cable Orders

    Power cord cable is provided in the ship group.

    Installability

    The 43P Series system requires under one hour for installation. Installation incudes unpacking, setting up, and powering on system. Additional time is required to install other memory, other features, and additional software products.

    Problem Determination

    The Customer Problem Analysis and Resolution (CPAR) guides contain self-test and diagnostic procedures which assist the customer in isolating a defective machine element. During the warranty period, the failing element will be replaced on-site. An IBM Service Agreement is recommended outside of the warranty period.

    Security, Auditability and Control

    Security features such as the following help protect the computer, the hardware inside, and the information stored on the hard disk:

    • Cover lock and keys:
      Provide mechanical protection against unauthorized access to the inside of the computer.

    • Tie-down feature:
      Provides the ability to secure the computer to a stationary object.

    • Power-on Password:
      Helps prevent unauthorized use of the computer.

    • Supervisory Password:
      Prevents the unauthorized changing of the startup-device sequence and other system configuration information, as well as the unauthorized use of system utility programs. When set, the supervisory password overrides the power-on password.

    The AIX Version 4.1 operating system provides a system-lockup capability as an additional security measure. Check the operating system documentation for details.

    This product uses the security and auditability features of the Operating System software. User management is responsible for evaluation, selection and implementation of security features, administrative procedures and appropriate controls in application systems and communications facilities.

    External Attachment

    Hardware Compatibility

    The IBM RISC System/6000 43P Series workstations are designed to maintain compatibility with adapters and devices which fully support both the industry standard architecture (ISA) and Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) interfaces.

    Note: AIX Device Driver required.

    Memory:
    The 43P Series supports 72-pin industry standard 4MB, 8MB, 16MB, and 32MB industry standard memory SIMMs.
    Memory Description
    ------------------
     4MB (70 ns) Memory SIMM (32-bit, 72-pin) Parity
     8MB (70 ns) Memory SIMM (32-bit, 72-pin) Parity
    16MB (70 ns) Memory SIMM (32-bit, 72-pin) Parity
    32MB (70 ns) Memory SIMM (32-bit, 72-pin) Parity
    

    Hard Disk Drive:
    The 43P Series uses SCSI-2 interfaced hard disk drives in varied capacities in the industry standard 3.5-inch format. Internal hard disk drives available are 540MB, 720MB, 1GB, and 2GB. The 2GB hard disk is not supported in the 5.25" bay.

    SCSI-2 Devices:
    SCSI Devices may be internal (maximum four) or external (maximum of 2) for a total maximum of six on the system. SCSI-2 devices are CD-ROMs, hard disk files and tape drives. A hard disk drive, for example, may be located internally or externally in a SCSI-2 Enclosure.

    The first external SCSI device requires that the following be ordered:

    • One 3510 SCSI-2 Enclosure

    • SCSI-2 Active Terminator

    • SCSI-2 External cable (System to Option)

    Diskette Drive:
    The 43P Series uses the industry standard 'AT' interface 3.5-inch diskette drive of 1.44MB format.

    CD-ROM Drive:
    The CD-ROM is a 5.25-inch, 680MB, Quad-Speed, SCSI interface CD-ROM with a data rate of 600KB/sec. supporting CD-ROM XA format.

    Business Audio:
    43P Series uses the Crystal 4232 business audio chip.

    Mouse/Pointing Device:
    43P Series will support the IBM AIX compatible 3-button mouse.

    Serial Ports:
    43P Series has two 16550 9-pin connectors with RS232D electrical interface.

    Parallel Port:
    One Bi-directional ECP port.

    Keyboard:
    43P Series supports the IBM enhanced keyboard.

    Monitors:
    43P Series supports the IBM 6327, 9525, 9527 and 9521 monitors. For non-IBM monitors, the user must determine whether a selected graphics adapter has been tested with the non-IBM monitor.

    Software Compatibility

    AIX Version 4.1 supports the full range of applications on the 43P Series. As a general guide, applications requiring features or communication hardware that are not available with the 43P Series should not be executed, as well as any applications that exceed the physical limits of available memory and storage. Attachment of external SCSI devices can be used to extend the capability of the 43P Series workstation.
