Transcript of SUN BLADE 1000 ARCHITECTURE

VR ARCHITECTURE
Introduction
Sun blade was a computer workstation line developed and sold by Sun Microsytems from 2000 to 2006

A cluster of Sun blade 1000 workstations with total 32750 Mhz Ultra SPARC-3 microprocessors was donated to CLC by Sun Microsystems.
The 1500/2500 series came in two variants, the earlier "red" series, and the later "silver" series.

The "silver" series were enhanced versions of the "red" series - a faster CPU being the key differentiator.

The Sun Blade series was supplanted by the Sun Java Workstation line in 2004.

SYSTEM ARCHITECTURE
OF SUN BLADE
The sun blade 1000 system architecture contains
ultraSPARK-III microprocessor
tightly integrated into it.
SPARC
version maintains upward binary compatibility for application software architectural implementations including microSPARC, TurboSPARC, SuperSPARC, and previous version of UltraSPARC.
Ethernet
To support higher performance network connectivity, all Sun Blade 1000 workstations support 100 Mb/second Fast Ethernet. Fast Ethernet (100BASE-T) is a direct extension of the 10BASE-T Ethernet standard, but is capable of supporting a wider range of application requirements with its greater throughput

SCSI
Sun Blade 1000 and 2000 systems support the 40 MB/second UltraSCSI (Fast-20) interface.

USB
Sun Blade 1000 systems provide four USB ports on the back panel for support of both low-speed (1.5-Mbps) and full-speed (12-Mbps) devices.
Parallel Port

The parallel port can be operated using programmed I/O or DMA. Its interface direction, timing, and protocol is programmable to meet the wide variety of Centronics interfaces.

Serial Ports
RS-232C and RS-423 serial ports provide a convenient way to connect a Sun Blade 1000 system to devices such as modems and terminals.
The UltraSPARC-III processor
provides features
such as higher clock frequency, reduced on-chip latencies, support for greater amounts of level-one and level-two cache, and an integrated external memory controller. 
The Sun Blade 1000 workstation supports a
maximum of two processors and 8Gb of memory.
As with the Sun Enterprise 10000, the system has a crossbar switch interconnect for higher data throughput.
The sun blade 1000 shown in figure has two 900 MHz Ultra-Spark III 64-bit processors, each of which is twice faster than previous generation CPU.
Their performance and low latency are helped by the presence of primary and secondary caches, which reduce the need to access main memory.
The data are routed through combined processor memory switch. This architecture allows multiple memory calls to be served simultaneously and out of order.
The Sun Blade 10000 can therefore support two high
performance graphics cards
for a dual head display configurations.
The Sun Blade 1000 workstation, has
3 removable media slots
for choice of DVD-ROM, 4mm tape drive or floppy. A Smart card reader is standard. Because of the new UltraSPARC-III processor and the use of USB technology, Solaris 8 is the only supported operating system.

ARCHITECTURE
EXPERT 3D GRAPHICS CARD IN DETAIL
The expert 3D graphics card communicates with the PCI bus through a bus interface Application-Specific Integrated Circuits (ASIC) which uses an 8-MB on-board direct burst memory. The 3D transformation, shading, and geometry clipping operations are done by geometry engine ASIC.

This chip feeds the results into a rasterizer engine ASIC for the last stage of the pipeline. Pixel operations arc accelerated by a 64-MB texture memory and stored in a 64-MB frame buffer at a fill rate of 143 million pixels/sec. The resulting image has high resolution, namely 1920 x 1200 pixels in monoscopic mode and 1280 x 1024 pixels in stereoscopic mode (at 112-Hz screen refresh rates). The digital signal is converted to analog and output to RGB monitors, while a sync signal is provided for active glasses.
The graphics pipeline of the Blade 1000 has some interesting features, representing a transition from the traditional Sun Ultra Port Architecture (UPA) graphics bus to the more standard PCI bus.

FEATURES OF SUN BLADE
It supports 2D and 3D graphics as well as image processing, video compression and decompression, and video effects through an enhanced comprehensive set of multimedia instruction set.
 This architecture allows multiple memory calls to be served simultaneously and out of order.
APPLICATIONS
THANK YOU...
The graphics pipeline of the Blade 1000 has some interesting features, representing a transition from the traditional Sun Ultra Port Architecture (UPA) graphics bus to the more standard PCI bus.
There are two
64-bit UPA buses,
which are routed to older
Elite 3D Graphics cards
. Two separate buses will be used for two separate cards for faster throughput.
The expert 3D graphics card communicates with the
PCI bus
through a bus interface Application-Specific Integrated Circuits (ASIC).
The 3D transformation, shading, and geometry clipping operations are done by geometry engine ASIC. This chip gives the result to rasterizer graphics engine which then gives for display.
