The vs provides access to the Interphase 4210 ‘Jaguar’, 4220 and 4220W ‘Cougar’, also sold as the Motorola MVME328, MVME328S and MVME328XT VME boards. Depending on the version, these boards provide up to two single-ended or differential, narrow or wide SCSI interfaces. Dual-channel boards do not necessarily have channels of the same type. On ‘Jaguar’ boards, the vs driver cannot report whether a channel is single-ended or differential. It is recommended to be very careful if the type of the channel is not known with certitude.

The following table lists the channel configuration for Motorola MVME328 boards.

Model Number Channel 0 Channel 1
Single-ended Missing
Single-ended Single-ended
Differential Missing
Differential Differential

The following table lists the channel configuration for Motorola MVME328S boards.

Model Number Channel 0 Channel 1
Single-ended Missing
Single-ended Single-ended
Differential Differential
Differential Single-ended

The card's base address (matching the addr locator on the configuration line) is defined through a set of jumpers on the card.

The card address is controlled with nine jumpers, labeled “JB1” on the board, near the fuse in a corner of the card. They are contiguous to the “JA7” single jumper and “JA8” dual jumper, located immediately to the left of the “JB1” block.

The only supported configurations are:

JB1 Address Configuration
0xffff9000 1st board
0xffff9800 2nd board
0xffff4800 3rd board
0xffff5800 4th board
0xffff7000 5th board
0xffff7800 6th board

The card address is controlled with two sets of eleven jumpers – which label will depend on the card model and artwork revision. These jumpers are located between the two VME P1 and P2 connectors. With the card oriented so that the VME connectors are at the bottom, the bottom row of eleven jumpers should have the leftmost jumper set and the ten rightmost jumpers open.

The only supported configurations for the top row are:

Jumpers Address Configuration
0xffff9000 1st board
0xffff9800 2nd board
0xffff4800 3rd board
0xffff5800 4th board
0xffff7000 5th board
0xffff7800 6th board

The daughterboard providing access to the second SCSI channel does not work under OpenBSD if the first SCSI channel is empty.
