GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The ISA-HUB-Kit is designed to serve as a repeater
application example as well as an evaluation vehicle for
the AMD's IMR+ (Am79C981) and HIMIB (Am79C987)
devices. It is a nine port (eight 10BASE-T and one
AUI), manageable, expandable 10BASE-T Ethernet
Repeater card, and is fully compatible with the IEEE
802.3 Repeater Management Standard. The ISA-HUB
card is intended for use in IBM PC ISA and EISA bus
compatible machines. The kit includes all the neces-
sary hardware, software and documentation to build a
fully managed 9-port repeater. When installed in a file
server, the ISA-HUB card, in conjunction with a net-
work adapter card (such as NE2100 or NE1500T), pro-
vides direct file server to node connectivity.
The ISA-HUB card is designed to be modular and ex-
pandable. Up to eight cards can be cascaded to sup-
port 64 10BASE-T ports.
The HIMON (HImib MONitor) program is a menu
driven, PC (MSDOS) software program that allows the
user to monitor and program various registers in the
HIMIB and IMR+ devices.
The ISA-HUB card is fully compatible with the Novell
Hub Management Interface (HMI) specification. An
HMI driver is included as a part of the kit. The card is
designed to be independent of the network adapter
card used in the file server. File server connection to
the network is accomplished by connecting the adapter
card to one of the ISA-HUB ports.
The ISA-HUB-Kit is composed of the following items.

ISA-HUB ISA/EISA bus compatible adapter card
