2.6 SCSI Bus Backplane Connection Options

2.6.1 Option I. Transition Module

This is the most common and versatile option. It gives the capability to connect 8-bit and 16-bit cables to the BI0316. It gives also the capability to connect external terminators.

Figure 2-4 Option I - Transition Module

The BI0318 and BI0319 are modules that fit on the VMEbus P2 connector of the BI0316. They route the SCSI signals of the VMEbus P2 connector to standard SCSI-2 and SCSI-3 connectors. The BI0318 and BI0319 serve several functions:

  • enable daisy-chaining of the SCSI-2 and SCSI-3 cables
  • allowing external termination
  • support mixing of 8- and 16-bit cables
The BI0318 and BI0319 Transition Modules can be used in VMEbus systems that are fitted with or without a J2 backplane. In either case the BI0318 and BI0319 provide universal solutions with their SCSI-2 and SCSI-3 type of connectors. See the Technical Manual of the BI0318 and BI0319 for the installation details.
