PCI serial.jpg

SGI PCI Serial I/O <a.k.a. PCI SIO UFC>, part number 030-1657-003:

Provides two RS-232/RS-422 serial ports. The board is slotted for universal voltage, but SGI only provides drivers for Onyx 300/350/3000 systems. The SGI marketing code is PCI-SER-10002.

Radical audio.jpg

SGI PCI Digital Audio Board <also known as the RADical Audio board>. The SGI part number for the example shown is 030-1649-001, it appears in an hinv with PCI vendor ID 0x10a9(SGI) and a device ID of 0x0005(RAD Audio):

Last generation RADical Audio board; universal voltage board (works in 3.3 or 5 volt PCI slots); the shape of 030-1649-00x boards was redesigned to ensure proper operation with the PCI Carrier used in Origin 3x0/3x00 I/IX/P Bricks.

SGI made four versions of the RADical Audio board. Those versions were nicely summarized by Reed Lawson on his Many Incarnations of RADical web page (which originally appeared on the now defunct Here's a brief description of each revision, excerpted from the Many Incarnations of RADical (obtained via the Internet Wayback Machine). 030-0950-001 -- The original (5 volt PCI only) 030-0950-002 -- We added the special ksync connector for O200 (still 5 volt only) 030-1441-001 -- First "universal" version (3.3 or 5 volt PCI) for sgi 320/540 030-1649-001 -- Slightly better card outline for SN1 (O3000). Also "universal". A similar descriptive summary is also included in the PCI Digital Audio Board Installation Guide (available on-line or as a download from SGI's Technical Publications Library).

SGI Gigabit.jpg

SGI PCI Gigabit Ethernet:

1000 Base SX (fiber optic interface) and 1000 Base T (copper interface) - shown mounted in an O2k XIO Shoehorn <a PCI-to-XIO slot adapter>: Both are keyed as 'universal' PCI cards to fit in either 3.3 or 5 volt slots. A manual, the SGI IRIS Gigabit Ethernet Board User's Guide is available at SGI's Technical Publications Library: ... /ch01.html


Mellanox InfiniHost: The Mellanox InfiniHost is a 10 Gbit/s Infiniband controller with two 4x ports. The card is PCI-X and is keyed to fit exclusively in 3.3 volt PCI slots. A manual can be downloaded from SGI's Techical Publications Library: here

O2 inifinitiband.jpg

SGI O2 10/100BaseT Network Card for O2: SGI marketing code SGI_PCI-ENET-TX-1P; part number 9210105 <photos courtesy of ajerimez>


SGI USB PCI card, SGI part number 9210286: NEC chipset - Slotted for 3.3 and 5V PCI applications. SGI equipped Onyx 350 InfiniteReality and InfinitePerformance systems with this card as an attachment point for USB keyboards and mice. There are some references on TechPubs indicating Orange Micro as the OEM, while "UP205-0525" screened on the PCB returns Adaptec references. It appears in an hinv with a PCI vendor ID of 0x1033 (NEC) PCI device numbers 0x0035(Dual OHCI controllers plus Single EHCI controller) and 0x00e0(USB 2.0 Host Controller).


DATAFIRE PCI 1ST ISDN card SGI PN: 9210111 Came inside one O2.

SGI 9981028.jpg
