This section applies to all hardware installations you may perform that involve the MVME2300SC board. Motorola strongly recommends the use of an antistatic wrist strap and a conductive foam pad when you install or upgrade the board. Electronic components can be extremely sensitive to ESD. After removing the board from the chassis or from its protective wrapper, place the board flat on a grounded, static-free surface, component side up.
Preparing the Board Turn the system’s power off before you perform these procedures. Failure to turn the power off before opening the enclosure can result in personal injury or damage to the equipment. Hazardous voltage, current, and energy Warning levels are present in the chassis. Hazardous voltages may be present on power switch terminals even when the power switch is off.
Hardware Preparation and Installation MVME2300SC Figure 1-1 illustrates the placement of the jumper headers, connectors, and various other components on the MVME2300SC. Manually configurable jumper headers on the MVME2300SC are listed in the following table (with default settings enclosed in brackets). Table 1-2.
Hardware Preparation and Installation Flash Bank Selection (J8) The MVME2300SC VMEmodule has provision for 1MB of 8-bit Flash memory for the on-board firmware (or for customer-specific applications) in two 32-pin PLCC sockets that constitute Flash bank B. In addition, the MVME2300SC accommodates 4MB of firmware resident on four soldered-in devices (Flash bank A) specifically for customer use.
Preparing the Board VMEbus System Controller (J9) The MVME2300SC is factory-configured in ‘‘automatic’’ system controller mode (i.e., a jumper is installed across pins 2 and 3 of header J9). This means that at system power-up or reset, the MVME2300SC determines whether it is system controller by its position on the bus; if it occupies slot 1 on the VME system, it configures itself as the system controller.

5. Secure the MVME2300SC (and PMCspan modules if used) in the chassis with the screws provided, making good contact with the transverse mounting rails to minimize RF emissions. Some VME backplanes (e.g., those used in Motorola "Modular Note Chassis" systems) have an autojumpering feature for automatic propagation of the IACK and BG signals.
Hardware Preparation and Installation 7. If you intend to use PPCBug interactively, connect the terminal that is to be used as the PPCBug system console to the port on DEBUG the front panel of the MVME2300SC. In normal operation, the host CPU controls MVME2300SC operation via the VMEbus Universe registers.
Installing the Hardware Installation Considerations The MVME2300SC draws power from VMEbus backplane connectors P1 and P2. P2 is also used for the upper 16 bits of data in 32-bit transfers, and for the upper 8 address lines in extended addressing mode. The MVME2300SC may not function properly without its main board connected to VMEbus backplane connectors P1 and P2.

Applying Power Applying Power When you power up (or when you reset) the system, the firmware executes some self-checks and proceeds to the hardware initialization. The system startup flows in a predetermined sequence, following the hierarchy inherent in the processor and the MVME2300SC hardware. The figure below charts the flow of the basic initialization sequence that takes place during system startup.
Startup and Operation Pre-Startup Checklist Before you power up the MVME2300SC system, be sure that the following conditions exist: 1. Jumpers and/or configuration switches on the MVME2300SC VME processor module and associated equipment are set as required for your particular application. 2.
Bringing up the Board Bringing up the Board The MVME2300SC comes with PPCBug firmware installed. For the firmware to operate properly with the board, you must follow the steps below. Inserting or removing boards with power applied may damage board components.
Startup and Operation 5. Refer to the setup procedure for your particular chassis or system for details concerning the installation of the MVME2300SC and the implementation of the SCbus. 6. Confirm that the terminal to be used as the PPCBug system console is connected to the DB9 connector, J2, on the front panel of DEBUG...

Before using the MVME2300SC after the initial installation, set the date and time using the following command line structure: SET [mmddyyhhmm]|[<+/-CAL>;C] PPC-Bug> For example, the following command line starts the real-time clock and sets the date and time to 10:37 a.m., November 7, 2001: SET 1107011037 PPC-Bug>...
Startup and Operation Although you can use streaming tape to autoboot, the same power supply must be connected to the tape drive, the controller, and the MVME2300SC. At power-up, the tape controller will position the Caution streaming tape to the load point where the volume ID can correctly be read and used.
Restarting the System Network Boot Network Auto Boot is a software routine in the PPCBug firmware which provides a mechanism for booting an operating system using a network (local Ethernet interface) as the boot device. The Network Auto Boot routine automatically scans for controllers and devices in a specified sequence until a valid bootable device containing boot media is found or until the list is exhausted.
Startup and Operation same time. This feature can be helpful in the event that your setup/operation parameters are corrupted or do not meet a sanity check. Refer to the ENV command description in Chapter 3 for the ROM defaults. Reset Powering up the MVME2300SC initiates a system reset.
Diagnostic Facilities Abort Aborts are invoked by pressing and releasing the switch on the ABORT MVME2300SC front panel. When you invoke an abort while executing a user program (running target code), a snapshot of the processor state is stored in the target registers. This characteristic makes aborts most appropriate for terminating user programs that are being debugged.
Startup and Operation If you are in the debugger directory, you can switch to the diagnostic directory with the debugger command Switch Directories (SD). The diagnostic prompt appears. Refer to the PPCBug Diagnostics PPC-Diag> Manual for complete descriptions of the diagnostic routines available and instructions on how to invoke them.
Related Documentation. PPCBug Basics The PowerPC debug firmware, PPCBug, is a powerful evaluation and debugging tool for systems built around the Motorola PowerPC microcomputers. Facilities are available for loading and executing user programs under complete operator control for system evaluation. PPCBug provides a high degree of functionality, user friendliness, portability, and ease of maintenance.
PPCBug Firmware PPCBug consists of three parts: A command-driven, user-interactive software debugger, described in the PPCBug Firmware Package User’s Manual. It is hereafter referred to as “the debugger” or “PPCBug”. A command-driven diagnostics package for the MVME2300SC hardware, hereafter referred to as “the diagnostics.” The diagnostics package is described in the PPCBug Diagnostics Manual.
Using PPCBug Memory Requirements PPCBug requires a maximum of 512KB of read/write memory (i.e., DRAM). The debugger allocates this space from the top of memory. For example, a system containing 64MB ($04000000) of read/write memory will place the PPCBug memory page at locations $03F80000 to $03FFFFFF.
PPCBug Firmware A debugger command is made up of the following parts: The command name, either uppercase or lowercase (e.g., MD or md). Any required arguments, as specified by the command. At least one space before the first argument. Precede all other arguments with either a space or comma.
