J6, Power Connector
The power connector is usually the same connector found on 3.5" floppy disk drives, making it convenient to use standard PC power supplies with this board.

JP1, Microphone/Headset
This jumper configures the mini phono jack J1. The default setting provides bias (power) to an attached microphone through the middle ring of the connector. It can also be configured to connect the audio output of the MOSART to the middle ring of the connector for use with an earphone/headset.
JP1 Image


          Yellow: +5VDC bias (power) to J1 middle ring (default)

             Red: +5VDC bias (power) to J1 tip, audio out to middle ring

JP2, MOSART Interupt Select
This jumper connects one of the MOSART output lines TxEMPTY, TxRDY, RxRDY, or SynDet to J4 pin 15 (-INT) (through U1).
JP2 Image


               1: TxEMPTY
               2: TxRDY
               3: RxRDY
               4: SynDet

JP3, Audio Output Mute (?)
This jumper provides a connection between the center pin of RCA connector J3 abd GND. I am not sure what this might be for. It is not mentioned in my hardware manual. The only use I can see for it might be to provide a connection for muting the audio output.
JP3 Image


             Red: J3 center pin to GND

JP4, SCSI Termination Power
This jumper connects +5VDC to either the on-board SCSI termination resistor packs (the default), or to the SCSI bus connector J5 pins 25 and 26.
JP4 Image


          Yellow: +5VDC to on-board SCSI bus termination (default)

             Red: +5VDC to SCSI bus J5 pins 25 and 26

JP5, 5380 -DACK Signal
This jumper determines the source for the NCR 5380 SCSI chip's -DACK signal. It connects either data bit D0 of I/O port F4, or the I/O port F4 select signal (the default) to the 5380's pin 26.
NOTE: This jumper's default setting is "hard wired", there is a circuit board trace installed between the two specified pads. To change the setting you will need to cut this trace and install a jumper as needed. This jumper is located on the backside of the circuit board "under" the NCR5380 SCSI Controller chip.
JP5 Image


          Yellow: I/O port F4 select to 5380 -DACK (default)

             Red: I/O port F0 data bit D0 to 5380 -DACK
