    • When turned on, the 5150 automatically runs a power-on self-test to verify system readiness. If the validation is successfully completed, the BASIC ROM Interpreter (cassette level) is made ready and identified on the display screen. The user may now enter a program from the keyboard or load it from a cassette recorder. If a failure is found, an identifying number will appear on the screen. If a diskette drive is installed, the 5150 automatically loads from the diskette in drive "A". This is typically the Disk Operating System (DOS) or an application program. The DOS may in turn invoke the Disk or Advanced levels of BASIC, followed then by the manual or automatic execution of one or more BASIC programs.

    (#0213) PC Network Adapter

    (No Longer Available as of July, 5, 1988)

    Allows the 5150 to be connected to form an IBM PC Network. The PC Network is a low-cost broadband local area network that is designed for offices, departments, and small businesses. Using the PC Network Program, it supports peer-to-peer communications among PCs in the network. Standard broadband components and 75-ohm coaxial cable (CATV compatible) are used to provide a reliable low-maintenance network that uses carrier sense multiple access/collision detection (CSMA/CD) protocol to transmit data at 2 million bits per second. Each PC on the network requires the PC Network Adapter which has a unique serial number contained in ROM that is used as the network identifier of the PC in which the adapter is installed. The Network Adapter contains an Intel 80188 processor, an Intel 82586 network controller, a fixed-frequency modem, and network microcode that off loads the network control and interface functions from the system microprocessor. The fixed-frequency modem operates at a 50.75MHz transmit frequency and a 219MHz receive frequency form transmission on a single-cable broadband network. Direct memory access is used for data transfer. The Network microcode (NETBIOS) which resides in the Network Adapter's ROM, is the basis of program control of the network. NETBIOS supports up to 32 peer-to-peer sessions active at one time. The Network Adapter is provided with a 9-foot cable for attaching the PC to the 5178 Network Translator Unit. Additional PC Network Cabling Components connect to allow the PC with the Network Adapter to be located up to 1,000 feet from the 5178 unit. Limitations: Each user who is to share an application program on a PC Network must be licensed to use that program. Field Installation: Yes.

The clustered IBM Personal Computer configuration utilizes baseband signaling and carrier sense multiple access with collision avoidance (CSMA/CA) access protocol. The topology of the interconnection is a bus environment using 75-ohm coaxial cable. The data transmission is 375Kb per second. The Cluster Program is provided to support up to 64 PCs in a clustered configuration. This program permits small work groups in schools and businesses to exchange messages and data files and optionally to share a fixed disk that contains programs. Messages and files can be transferred between any two PCs in the cluster and a message can be broadcast from one PC to all other PCs in the cluster. When a fixed disk is to be shared, the PC in the cluster with the fixed disk must be designated as a disk server. When a disk server PC is defined, a download option is made available which will permit downloading DOS, the cluster program, and an application program from the disk server PC to a remote PC in the cluster when the remote computer is powered on. Limitations: Each user who is to share an application program on a cluster must be licensed to use that program. Field Installation: Yes. Prerequisites: An available full-feature slot in the 5150 unit; DOS Version 2.1 or later. If the 5150 is designated as the disk server computer, it must have 256Kb of memory and one fixed disk.
