A. 4 panels of RJ45 connectors provide connections to monitor outputs from I/O modules.
- Each connector is linked to an I/O module in the front and to an I/O module in the back.
- Analog I/O modules (channels 0-16) use only the first column of connectors.
- Digital I/O modules use both columns: channels 0-15 in the first column and channels 16-31 on the second column of connectors.
- See the I/O module connector image and the RJ45 pinouts for detailed information.
B:. Monitoring RJ45 connectors with mini-BNC terminals.
- RJ45 cables connect from a channel on an RJ45 panel (A) to one of the four RJ45 monitoring connectors (B).
- Mini-BNC connectors allow for quick cable connections to monitoring devices (such as an oscilloscope)
- See OP5705XG Connecting Monitoring Devices for details.
C. 4 SFP ports (for MuSE or device interconnection) and status LEDs for each channel (LED 0 = channel 0):
- Blinking green: an SFP module is plugged into the port and the bitstream is using Aurora for this channel
- Continuous green: an SFP module is plugged into the port and the bitstream is not using Aurora for this channel
- Blinking red: rx_loss is 1
- Continuous red: tx_fault is 1 (these are SFP status signals)
- OFF: no module plugged into the port and no Aurora present in the bitstream for this channel
D. Fiber-optic synchronization connectors and status LEDs.
E. Target computer monitoring interface:
- POWER push-button: Start/Stop the target computer
- RESET push-button: Reset the target computer
- 6 LED indicators:
F. USB connector for JTAG programming (for OPAL-RT technicians’ use)
