Sun Modules By Part-Number


Some Sun and third-party documents (spare part lists, price lists, bug reports, etc) have conflicting or unbelievable descriptions of a few of these part-numbers - watch out for the question-marks...

The shorthand system-names in the third column indicate which systems the modules were officially supported in. If that support only extends to a single module per bus, it is noted in brackets.

Many modules also work fine in other systems, or work but need additional cooling, or work if a given PROM revision is present, or work but require alternate motherboard jumper settings, or partially work perfectly (!) - eg: SM61-2 modules work fine in the SS10, but only the first Mb of external cache is used in such systems, or: the SM520 works in the SS10, but only the first CPU on the module is used if an SM51 is also present.

However, remember that some modules really don't work in some systems. Or even fit - the SM521 can only be physically installed in a SPARCserver-600 series system.

See the individual system descriptions for all the gory details.

Where specific revisions of a single part-number effect the "officially supported" list, such minor-revision-parts are listed separately, see 501-2270 and 501-2562.

The term SS10 includes SPARCcluster systems, but excludes the SPARCstation-10 model 20 and the SPARCstation-10SX.

The term SC2000 excludes those very early SPARCcenter-2000 systems that had 66MHz control-boards. However, it sometimes includes the SC2000E (this needs fixing).

The term SC1000 sometimes includes the SC1000E (this needs fixing).
