This publication has general information about mM input/output (I/O) equipment
(devices and systems) that can operate locally with large S/370, 303x, and 308x
processors. (See IBM System/3 70 System Summary: Processors for a listing of
specific processors.) These devices and systems can be attached to a channel or to
an integrated adapter on the processor.

The purpose of this publication is to summarize high-level information of IBM I/O
devices and systems for easy reference and comparison. The primary audiences for
this publication are customer executives, data processing managers, persons in the
data processing education environment, and mM marketing representatives who
need a general overview of the various IBM 110 equipment.

Input/ output devices and systems that can be locally attached to a specific IBM
processor are listed in the input/output configurator for that processor. For
example, see IBM System/370 Input/Output Configurator, for System/370 I/O

Input/ output devices are announced, withdrawn, and specifications are changed by
mM on a regular basis. For the most current information on availability and
specifications of input/output devices, see your IBM sales representative.
