3004 "Carrera" CPU VME 2M (3/75/140/150/160/180)
16.67MHz 68020, 68881, Sun-3 MMU with eight hardware contexts, up to 4M of
onboard memory (depending on model). VME bus interface.
From left to right with component side up and connector edge toward you
(normal top edge at left), the rear edge has: a female DB15 AUI Ethernet
connector; eight LEDs (bit 0 to the top/left); a switch to toggle between
Normal and Diagnostics modes; a reset switch; a female DB9 monochrome video
connector; a female DB15 keyboard/mouse connector; and two female DB25
serial port connectors (ports A and B from left to right (top/bottom)).
Pin 1 is usually in the upper right corner of all connectors. Unconnected
pins are not listed.
Jumpers J2501, J2503, and J2505 relate to Ethernet. The pinout of the AUI
Ethernet connector is:
2 E.COL+ 9 E.COL-
3 E.TxD+ 10 E.TxD-
5 E.RxD+ 12 E.RxD-
6 GND 13 +12V
7 VCC (see J2503)
The eight LEDs are used for diagnostic purposes.
If you want the machine to boot normally, set the diagnostics switch to "NORM"
(labelled "BOOT" on some early versions). If you want extended diagnostics
when you power up the system, set the switch to the "DIAG" position. If the
switch is set to "DIAG", power-on self-test messages are sent to serial port
The user reset button invokes a watchdog reset. The result depends on the
value at address 0x17 of the EEPROM. (?)
The monochrome video output levels are ECL/TTL, with a resolution of
1152 x 900 at 61.8KHz horizontal sync and 66Hz vertical sync. The pinout of
the monochrome video connector is:
1 VIDEO+ 6 VIDEO-
3 HSYNC 7 GND
4 VSYNC 8 GND
The pinout of the keyboard/mouse connector is:
1 RxD0 (keyboard) 8 GND
2 GND 9 GND
3 TxD0 (keyboard) 10 VCC
4 GND 11 VCC
5 RxD1 (mouse) 12 VCC
6 GND 14 VCC
7 TxD1 (mouse) 15 VCC
The serial ports conform to both RS-232-C and RS-423 and are wired DTE. The
documented maximum speeds are 19200 bps for output and 9600 bps for input.
The pinout of the serial ports is:
2 TxD (transmit data) 8 DCD (Data Carrier Detect)
3 RxD (receive data) 15 DB (transmit clock from DCE)
4 RTS (Request To Send) 17 DD (receive clock from DCE)
5 CTS (Clear To Send) 20 DTR (Data Terminal Ready)
6 DSR (Data Set Ready) 24 DA (transmit clock from DTE)
7 GND 25 VERR (-5V)
The DB, DD, and DA signals are not used with ordinary asynchronous equipment
such as most modems and terminals, printers, etc.).
There are a variety of jumper blocks, many of which (oddly) have separate
designations for each pair of pins. Locations below are given with component
side up and connector edge toward you.

Jump for 4M CPU.
Additional features of interest: the boot PROM is on the near left side at
location U1200 (grid C5). The IDPROM is catty-corner from the boot PROM at
location U1409 (grid B10). The keyboard fuse is by the reset switch at grid
A10. The Ethernet fuse is in the middle of the right edge, near J1001, at
Note that boot PROM version 1.8 is required to boot from a QIC-24 tape. Boot
PROM version 2.6 is required to boot from a QIC-24 tape in a Sun-2 shoebox.
Boot PROM version 2.6 is also required to boot from an SMD disk attached to a
Xylogics 7053 SMD controller.
Note that in order to use a VME 32-bit data device (e.g. MCP, HSI, ALM-2, SCA,
or "Sun-3" SCSI (?)), the CPU revision must be 501-1074-22, 501-1094-22,
501-1163-09, 501-1164-09, or later.
Power requirements are +5V @ 14/14.6A (2M/4M), -5V @ 0.8A.
