IRIX compatible PCI Cards - A Visual Aggregation

Unread postby recondas » Fri Feb 26, 2010 1:50 pm

As a reference to assist in identifying IRIX compatible PCI cards. With all the poorly identified odds-n-ends of parted out SGI systems appearing on eBay it might help someone make a proper identification.

So - post 'em if you got 'em - <but please trim your photos to a reasonable size>.

Mellanox InfiniHost: The Mellanox InfiniHost is a 10 Gbit/s Infiniband controller with two 4x ports. The card is PCI-X and is keyed to fit exclusively in 3.3 volt PCI slots. A manual can be downloaded from SGI's Techical Publications Library: http://techpubs.sgi.com/library/tpl/cgi ... 0-0479-001

SGI PCI Gigabit Ethernet:

1000 Base SX (fiber optic interface)
and 1000 Base T (copper interface) - shown mounted in an O2k XIO Shoehorn <a PCI-to-XIO slot adapter>:
Both are keyed as 'universal' PCI cards to fit in either 3.3 or 5 volt slots. A manual, the SGI IRIS Gigabit Ethernet Board User's Guide is available at SGI's Technical Publications Library: http://techpubs.sgi.com/library/tpl/cgi ... /ch01.html

SGI PCI Digital Audio Board <also known as the RADical Audio board>. The SGI part number for the example shown is 030-1649-001, it appears in an hinv with PCI vendor ID 0x10a9(SGI) and a device ID of 0x0005(RAD Audio): =
Radical_audio.jpg
Radical_audio.jpg (97.21 KiB) Viewed 3091 times
Last generation RADical Audio board; universal voltage board (works in 3.3 or 5 volt PCI slots); the shape of 030-1649-00x boards was redesigned to ensure proper operation with the PCI Carrier used in Origin 3x0/3x00 I/IX/P Bricks.

SGI made four versions of the RADical Audio board. Those versions were nicely summarized by Reed Lawson on his Many Incarnations of RADical web page (which originally appeared on the now defunct reality.sgi.com). Here's a brief description of each revision, excerpted from the Many Incarnations of RADical (obtained via the Internet Wayback Machine).
    030-0950-001 -- The original (5 volt PCI only)
    030-0950-002 -- We added the special ksync connector for O200 (still 5 volt only)
    030-1441-001 -- First "universal" version (3.3 or 5 volt PCI) for sgi 320/540
    030-1649-001 -- Slightly better card outline for SN1 (O3000). Also "universal".
A similar descriptive summary is also included in the PCI Digital Audio Board Installation Guide (available on-line or as a download from SGI's Technical Publications Library).

Might want to add this to the wiki - it should allow photo uploads as well (and if it isn't, let me know).

If anyone has a real SGI DM10, that would be a great addition here ...

Some more cards:

Sorry for the picture quality, have to make new ones...

[edit (03.01.2012): Just saw that the pictures are still absent, will search for the files...]

- SCRAMNet low latency interconnect
(Ok, no driver level support in Irix for this, it must be handled
by application software. But Irix doesn't stop you to do this ;) )

It came with an O200 which was used in a truck driving simulator setup.

SGI USB PCI card, SGI part number 9210286:
NEC chipset - Slotted for 3.3 and 5V PCI applications. SGI equipped Onyx 350 InfiniteReality and InfinitePerformance systems with this card as an attachment point for USB keyboards and mice.
SGI_PCI_USB_F.JPG
SGI_PCI_USB_R.JPG

There are some references on TechPubs indicating Orange Micro as the OEM, while "UP205-0525" screened on the PCB returns Adaptec references. It appears in an hinv with a PCI vendor ID of 0x1033 (NEC) PCI device numbers 0x0035(Dual OHCI controllers plus Single EHCI controller) and 0x00e0(USB 2.0 Host Controller).

I just like to add that the upper board is a Alteon Gigabit ethernet board, they and Sun made the first GbE that I know of and this board is OEM to atleast 3COM, DEC, SGI. Using the small I2M memory closed to the TIGON-II ASIC the ALTEON PCI vendor ID is altered so the board identifies as 3COM, DEC SGI and more.

So any of these OEM can be made to work by reprogramming the I2C memory.

I have actually done a design with this chip long time ago, late -90's for a large Telco in Sweden :)

For anyone interested, there are several nekochan threads on the modifying OEM gigabit cards to appear as the SGI version, including this one: viewtopic.php?p=27416#p27416
