Description

This object is a thin, vertically mounted plug-in module that consists of a front panel and a metal sheet that covers the entire right side of the module. The circuit board is mounted with the circuit side of the board toward this cover. The entire component side of the board is covered with active and passive components, integrated circuits of many different sizes, jumper blocks with jumpers, a small toroidal inductor, and four crystals. A daughter card, a 3.5 in floppy disc drive and control PCB, a Quantum GoDrive, and a vertical bracket with an edge connector mounted horizontally are mounted to the component side of the board. An LSI chip with three rows of pins around its perimeter and with a heat sink mounted on top is held in place by a locking socket near the top of the board. A row of four edge connectors are mounted on the component side of the board; two of the connectors are populated by small PCBs holding nine DIP packages.
The back of the module is open and supports a pair of 96 contact female connectors.

The front of the module is a panel which supports the following hardware from top to bottom: 17 small status LEDs, an 8P8C modular jack labeled "10BT," a Micro DB-50 jack labeled "SCSI," an HD15 female connector labeled "Video," a 6-pin Mini DIN connector labeled "Keyboard," two DB 9 male connectors mounted side-by-side, labeled "COM 1" and "2," and a small hole labeled with a "!" symbol. At the top of the front panel, to the left of the LED indicators, there is space for an expansion port of some kind, but it is blanked off. Indented at the bottom of the front panel is a vertically mounted floppy drive on the right and a panel on the left. Mounted on the panel, top to bottom, there is a BNC connector, a DB 15 female connector, and a small two-position slide switch. The positions of the slide switch are labeled "ENET" and "THIN"; the other two items are unlabeled.

Captive screws at the top and bottom of the front panel hold the module in place, and a plastic lever at the bottom is provided to aid in extracting the module.
