NOTES: 1. The B, C, and J class workstations do NOT support the EISA-SCSI 
	  Fast Differential interfaces.  The other models with EISA slots 
          support the EISA-SCSI/SE (A2679A) and EISA-SCSI/FD (25525B) cards.

       2. The HP-UX 10.30 and 11.00 releases only support the GSC-SCSI/FWD 
          add-on card (Product # A4107A) and the built-in SCSI interfaces
          for the S700 models per the "limitedS700support" FCR.

       3. The B class default wide SCSI is SE875 built-in.
          Optional differential is Zalon/720 built-in.

        8. PCXT', PCXU, and PCxU+ machines use a bus converter (U2) to
           provide two HSC (GSC+) busses from the Runway bus.
        9. The Jade server supports 22 additional HSC slots for HSC-FWD 
           SCSI cards, HSC-FibreChannel cards, and HP-PB bus converters
           for NIO SCSI cards.

NOTES ON HP MODELS AND INTERFACES

The above matrix lists the HP models, project names, CPU types, and
SCSI options for the three major system types.  More information appears
in the "Series 700 Workstations" section since experience has shown 
more differences with the Single-Ended (SE) SCSI interfaces on 
the S700 workstations.  This data was collected from various ordering 
and configuration guides, and HP-UX system specifications. 

    The PCXS and PCXT models include the NCR 53C700 device at various 
SCSI-Clock rates for the built-in Single-Ended (SE) SCSI controller.
These older models use the NCR 53C720 (40 MHz) SCSI controller (where 
supported) with the Outfield (O) chip for the built-in SCSI controller
for the Fast-Wide-Differential (FWD) SCSI bus.  The PCXS and PCXT models
do not provide support for an internal PC Floppy drive.

    The other CPU models use the NCR 53C710 SCSI-SE controller at 40 MHz
that is built into the multi-function LASI-I/O chip.  The built-in LASI 
device also provides I/O support for an internal PC Floppy drive.  These 
newer models use the NCR 53C720 device running at 40 MHz with the Zalon 
(Z) chip on the built-in SCSI-FWD I/O and the external GSC-SCSI-FWD I/O.

    The two types of EISA-SCSI cards use the NCR 53C710 SCSI controller 
at 50 MHz to support either Single-Ended (SE) or Fast-Differential (FD) 
SCSI devices.  The Series 700 Configuration Guide (November 1992 Edition) 
states that the older EISA Card (model 25525A) for FD SCSI devices is
not qualified on the 715/33-50-75 models, and it recommends the 25525B
EISA card for best results on the other workstations.  

    Note that the EISA bus runs at a clock rate (either 16 or 33 Mhz) 
that is one-third to one-half of the CPU CLK rate.  At this time, the 
EISA bus clock does not appear to affect our tests with SCSI devices.  

    The B, C, and J class workstations do NOT support the EISA-SCSI
interfaces.  The other workstation models with EISA interfaces will
support the EISA-SCSI/SE and  EISA-SCSI/FD cards.  Only the D-class
s800 models support the EISA-SCSI/SE card (model A2679A).
