Sun Ultra 1 E series (Creator)

The Ultra 1 is a pizzabox UltraSPARC machine available in in two flavours - the standard Ultra 1 and the Ultra 1 Creator. The Ultra 1 is available in 143MHz (Model 140) and 167MHz (Model 170) versions. The model 200 (Ultra Creator 1) launched in August 1996 with a list price of US$27,000 for the Ultra 1 Model 200E. Ultra Creator 1

My Ultra 1 Creator has a SunVideo controller installed in its second SBust slot. It only has a standard SBus frame buffer installed with a 2GByte hard disk and 512MBytes of RAM. When I got it the CD-ROM drive had failed so rather than attempt to repair it I just pulled the working drive from my dead SPARCstation 5. I also installed a new floppy drive cable as its original one was missing. It is currently running Solaris 9 and is scheduled for a hard disk upgrade some time in the near future.

E series

Model numbers with an E suffix (Sun service code A12, internal codename Electron) replaces the third SBus slot with a UPA slot to allow the use of an optional Creator framebuffer. In addition, the E models have Wide SCSI and Fast Ethernet interfaces in place of the narrow SCSI and 10base-T Ethernet of the standard Ultra-1 (Service code A11, codename Neutron)

Drives

The system can take two SCA SCSI hard disks mounted in the front left of the case. With the cover taken off the drives have a lever on them to make sliding them out of the side of the case easy. The right side of the case takes a CD-ROM drive and Floppy drive, both of normal sizes.

Systems

I have only one of these named ultra1c.

Images

There are no images yet. My only machine is pinned down under a fairly heavy monitor and I don't really want to move it just to take pictures.
