The CI750 is the CI adapter for the VAX-11/750.

It connects to one CI node directly, or to multiple CI nodes using the SC008 Star Coupler.

It consists of:

  • The CMI card L0009 - VAX-11/750 CCI (CMI Cluster Interconnect Module), that is placed into the VAX-11/750 CMI backplane.
  • The CIPA (CI Port Adapter) Unit, made of:
    • H9542 - 40" Medium System Cabinet Kit
    • 70-20407 - CIPA Power Supply
    • 54-15555 - CIPA Backplane
    • L0100 - ILI (I Link Interface Module)
    • L0101 - IPB (I Packet Buffer Module)
    • L0400 - CDP (Data Path Module)

Both units are connected using the 70-19602 - L0009 to CIPA Cable.

CI750 revisions are covered in the VAX-11/750 & VAX-11/751 Revision Control document.
