Sun SPARCstation 10

Description


The SPARCstation 10 (codenamed Campus-2) is a workstation computer made by Sun Microsystems. Announced in May 1992, it was Sun's first desktop multiprocessor (being housed in a pizza box form factor case). It was later replaced with the SPARCstation 20.

The SPARCStation 10 (SS10) contains two MBus slots running at either 36 MHz (33 MHz for the earliest models) or 40 MHz (set via motherboard jumper). Each MBus slot can contain single or dual SPARC CPU modules, permitting expansion to up to four CPUs. Both SuperSPARC and hyperSPARC CPU modules were available. Single SuperSPARC modules without external cache were sold by Sun; they ran at the clock speed of the MBus (uniprocessor Models 20, 30 and 40; dual processor Model 402). Single and a few dual SuperSPARC modules with 1 MB external cache were also sold; they were independently clocked, and ran at a higher rate than the MBus, most commonly 40.3 MHz or 50 MHz (uniprocessor Models 41 and 51; multiprocessor Models 412, 512 and 514). Sun's dual 50 MHz SuperSPARC modules (the only dual MBus modules supported by Sun for this system) were double-width, physically occupying one SBus slot per module in addition to an MBus slot. SuperSPARC modules with and without external cache could not be mixed. SuperSPARC modules with external cache could be mixed, even with different clock speeds, but this was not a Sun-supported configuration.

The SS10 can hold a maximum of 512 MB RAM in eight slots. There is one onboard Ethernet interface, which can be accessed from a built-in 10BASE-T jack or via a special 26-pin port that provides both AUI and audio connections; only one of these network ports can be active at a time. A special cable or adapter is needed to convert the latter port to a standard DA-15 connector.

There are also two Basic Rate Interface (BRI) ISDN connectors; the system shipped with plastic blocking plugs inserted in these connectors. Additional SBus network cards can also be added.

Detailed description

System

The SS10 system bus is a 33/40 MHz MBus (on the model 20) or a 36/40 MHz MBus (other models), with 2 slots for plug-in CPU modules.

Configurations using a single module must locate that module in slot 0 (the lower one).

Firmware Versions

Older systems may require BootPROM upgrades to be able to use newer MBus modules. Where known, the minimum BootPROM level is listed in the module configuration table .

The last available BootPROM is version 2.25 from Sun, or 2.25R from Ross/Bridgepoint.

WARNING:
The 2.25 and 2.25R PROMs have real behavioural differences.

The Ross 2.25R PROM enables 32Mb DSIMMs and RT620D-based HyperSPARC modules. The Sun 2.25 PROM does not.

The Sun 2.25 PROM works with SM20, SM30, SM52X; and (at least in part) with SM520, SM51-2, SM61-2, SM81-2 and pairs of some SM40 modules. The Ross 2.25R PROM might not.

There may be other differences.

The Ross 2.25R PROM can often be distinguished by the word "splug" on the label.

Overheating

The SS10 enclosure is somewhat prone to overheating.

Also, an SS10 fully populated with hot MBus modules and SBus cards and DSIMMs may overstress its' 140W power-supply (eg: an SS10 with two SM81 modules, a twin-slot SBus AG10 framebuffer, a SunSwift SBus card, an SBus PCMCIA adaptor, a full quota of 512Mb RAM, two internal disk-drives, you get the picture).

Configurations rated as deadly should not be used without additional cooling (ie: external fans to boost the left-to-right airflow), nor in heavily-configured systems.

Configurations rated as very hot should not be used in fully-populated systems (see above) without great care, or at least some additional cooling.

Also, the ZX and TurboZX (Leo) SBus graphics cards generate a huge amount of heat; the TurboZX draws a mind-boggling amount of power from four (yes, power from all four) SBus slots. If you have a ZX or TurboZX card installed, you should avoid configurations rated very hot; in the case of TurboZX, you should also avoid configurations rated merely fairly hot.

Similar precautions might be prudent if you have a Fujitsu AG-10 graphics card installed.

Prolonged disregard for the above guidelines is likely to result in damage:

  • kill the system power-supply
  • kill a CPU module
  • kill adjacent SBus cards
  • kill the motherboard
NOTE:
The heat-ratings are normalised against an ambient air temperature of upto 30 Celcius. If the external air temperature is above 30 Celcius, you should take extra care.

The SS10 enclosure will also cook hot disk drives (eg: Seagate 1/3-height Barracudas). However, the drive bays are sufficiently far from the MBus slots, and sufficiently isolated by the redirected airflow from the third fan, that overheating disk drives should not contribute significantly to module-overheating risks (and vice versa).

System Jumper Settings

The SS10 system MBus speed-selection protocol is controlled by jumpers on the motherboard. There are two types of SS10 motherboard: the older ones have three clock-speed jumpers (J1401, J1403, J1404), the newer ones only have a single clock-speed jumper (J1401).

The appropriate MBus speed depends on the CPU modules installed, see General Module Configuration Rules.

MBus Clock
(model 20)
MBus Clock
(other models)
Older System-Board Newer System-Board
33 MHz 36 MHz J1401: jumper
J1403: jumper on pins 2-3
J1404: jumper on pins 2-3
J1401: jumper on pins 2-3
40 MHz 40 MHz J1401: no jumper
J1403: jumper on pins 1-2
J1404: jumper on pins 1-2
J1401: jumper on pins 1-2

Other issues

The SS10 has two rows of two SBus slots for peripheral expansion (SCSI cards, framebuffers, serial-port cards, etc). Each double-width MBus module blocks an SBus slot on a distinct row, reducing the maximum number of single-width and double-width SBus cards by one. Thus an SS10 with two double-width MBus modules would have room for upto two single-width SBus cards, and no room for double-width SBus cards at all.

Depending on the size of your fingers, it may be neccessary to temporarily remove the DSIMM in SIMM slot 0 whilst inserting or extracting a second MBus module. Bear in mind that the system will not boot unless SIMM slot 0 is populated, so the DSIMM should always be replaced in that same slot afterwards.

MBus Module Configuration Table

Specific part-numbers are only listed where significant.

See also: General Module Configuration Rules, which also covers mixed-module configurations.

Note:&nbspsome configurations have particular caveats, such as failing to provide the level of performance that one might intuitively expect, or dangerous overheating, and so on. Such configurations are marked with a footnote-number in square brackets.

Footnotes:
1.
CPU runs underclocked, at 33MHz.
2.
CPU runs underclocked, at 40MHz.
3.
CPU runs underclocked, at 144MHz.
4.
CPU runs underclocked, at 160MHz.
5.
CPU runs underclocked, at 162MHz.
6.
May require the MBus speed to be set at 36MHz (33MHz on model 20).
7.
Only 1Mb of the 2Mb per-module cache memory is used.
8.
In these systems, the SM520 behaves as a single-CPU module when using any Sun PROM. The behaviour with Ross 2.25R PROM is not known.
9.
Fairly hot. Generally OK, but see Overheating.
10.
Very hot. Safe enough if caution taken. See Overheating.
11.
Deadly. See Overheating.
12.
Although the CYM6001K module works in the SS10 at the hardware and MBus level, Solaris 2.4 and later releases do not quite work on such a configuration (Solaris boots, but hangs when attempting to access the internal disk). Earlier Solaris releases, or SunOS 4.x, may behave differently.

SS10 Configured System Boards

The Configured System Boards chart shows the manufacturing history of factory configured SS10 System Board part numbers. Use the chart to determine the compatibility of a factory configured system board with the GT and ZX Graphics Options.

Configured system boards with the SM51 SuperSPARC Module were only built using 0MB System Boards 501-2259 or 501-2365. The SM51 Module is compatible with all 0MB System Boards and all FABs. Upgrades, including 50MHz and 60MHz modules, do not require a system board exchange.

SPARC Module Notes

  1. Do NOT mix SPARC modules of different types or speeds.
  2. OBP 2.12 is required if two SM40s are installed.
  3. The 501-2219 SM40 supports single processor mode only.
  4. The 501-2358 SM40 supports dual processor mode.
  5. When adding a second SPARC module, disable the TERMPWR option on internal disk drives with PTC protection. Failure to disable the disk drive TERMPWR option may cause power supply over-current shutdown during power-up if SCSI cable 530-1847-02 is installed.
  6. The 100MHz and 125MHz hyperSPARC Modules require OBP 2.19.
  7. SuperSPARC II modules require OBP 2.22.
  8. The 150MHz hyperSPARC Module requires OBP 2.25.

Hardware System Notes

  1. Use 16MB SIMM 501-1785, 501-2273, or 501-2479.
  2. Use 64MB SIMM 501-1930 or 501-2480.
  3. Install the highest capacity SIMM in Slot 0 under Solaris 1.x.
  4. The 270-1733-14 FAB has BABT approval for ISDN use in the UK.
  5. The 270-1733-14 FAB has BABT approval for X.25 use in the UK.
  6. The Maxtor 207MB Disk Drive requires firmware level 4.22 if it is connected to the on-board SCSI bus.
  7. The +12V PTC is connected to Power Connector J1501, Pin-1.

GT and ZX Configuration Notes

  1. The GT and ZX Options are not supported on system boards with MSI Rev A 100-2905-02. The ASIC is marked LSI Logic L1A6396.
  2. The GT and ZX Options are supported on system boards with MSI Rev B 100-2905-03. The ASIC is marked LSI Logic L1B7596.
  3. MSI Rev B was installed by manufacturing on the following 0MB CPUs:
    501-2274-06 Rev 50
    501-1733-16 Rev 52
    501-2259-05 Rev 52
    501-2365-01 Rev 50
  4. MSI Rev B is not installed during the repair process unless the ASIC is defective. Repaired boards may or may not have MSI Rev B.
  5. Picking is disabled when the ZX is used with MSI Rev A.
  6. A replacement CPU, order number UG-S10-MTHRBOARD, is available for customers who purchase ZX as a standalone option for older SS10 systems.

Internal SCSI Bus Notes

  1. Disable the TERMPWR option on disk drives installed in the SS10.
  2. SCSI bus TERMPWR is grounded on internal cable 530-1847-02. Failure to disable the TERMPWR option on disk drives with PTC protection may cause power supply over-current shutdown during power-up if SCSI cable 530-1847-02 is installed.
  3. SCSI bus TERMPWR is grounded on internal cable 530-1847-02. Internal disk drives with fused TERMPWR protection will blow the fuse if the disk drive TERMPWR option is enabled. The TERMPWR option is not needed by the internal SCSI bus.
  4. TERMPWR on the internal SCSI bus is not connected to TERMPWR on the external SCSI bus.
  5. Regulated termination at J0107 on the internal cable receives power from the SS10 CPU and is not connected to Pin-26 on the disk drive.
  6. The inner surface of the SS10 chassis is conductive. Use grommet 330-1390, or bracket 340-2939 with grommet 330-1717 and grommet 330-1390 to mount an internal disk drive. Damage to the disk drive may occur if this mounting hardware is not used.
