I've just boaght what appears to be a brand new HP 98622 GPIO card. This
is the 16 bit parallel I/O card for the DIO bus, as is used on the 9836, etc
It came with a user manual. This was a lot more use than I expected it to
be as it includes a schematic. It's a fairly thin manual, but full of
information. One interesting diagram at the back shows the correspondence
betweene the DIP switches on this card and the links in the 98032 I/O
module for the 9825...
Anyway, it describes 4 'options' for this card. Each one was a particular
cable -- one was the 50 pin Blue Ribbon plug to fit the card and bare
wires on the other end. The other 3 were wired to connectors to fit the
9885 disk drive (9" floppy), a Multiprogrammer (I forget the number, but
the one that didn't have an HPIB interface) and finally one for the 9866
The manual does give the switch settings to use the board with each of
these devices, but no wirelists of the cables. And amazigly I have all 3
of the listed peripherals.
So my question is obvious. Does anyone have any of these cables and could
'buzz out' the wiring?
