• If you need to lay the device down while it is out of the antistatic bag, lay it on the antistatic bag. Before
you pick it up again, touch the antistatic bag and the metal frame of the system at the same time.
• Handle the devices carefully to prevent permanent damage.

The following features are electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) Class B features. See the Class B Notices
in the Hardware Notices section.

The adapter information that is shown here is used during non-directed service activities. The information
can be used to:
• Identify an adapter
• Find specific technical information about an adapter
• Where applicable, show special installation or cabling instructions
• Show signal names for the output-pins of the adapter connectors
• Where applicable, show the settings for switches or jumpers
Adapters can be identified by their feature code (FC) or their custom-card identification number (CCIN).
Normally, the CCIN number is labeled on the adapter. The field replaceable unit (FRU) part number (P/N)
of your adapter might not match the FRU P/N listed in this information. If the part numbers do not match,
verify that the CCIN is the same. If the CCIN is same, the adapter has the same function and can be used
in the same way.
Adapters must be placed in specific PCI Express (PCIe) slots to function correctly or optimally.
