1.2 Features

1.2.4 VMEbus Signals

The VMEbus Interrupt Acknowledge and Bus Grant daisy-chain signals are routed on the BI0316 to facilitate Automatic-Daisy-Chain (ADC) backplanes.

The VMEbus ACFAIL* signal is used to warn the SCSI devices for a coming loss of power. The drives can use this signal to prevent write interruptions within a data block. Note that this feature is only active when the drives that are installed include this feature.
