This 3V Lithium clip in battery is replaceable with a CR2032 battery.

Cache Upgrade

End user units include a special CELP socket for an upgradeable COAST Cache module.

There are two COAST module configurations supported:

1. Modules configured with 32k x 64 asynchronous SRAM with a 5v 8k x 8 SRAM Tag SRAM. Eight 32k x 8 3.3v srams are used for the Data rams (all are contained on the COAST module).

2. Modules configured with 32k x 64 burst or pipelined burst with either four 32k x 16 or two 32k x 32 (no parity) srams (also located on the COAST module).

Commercial units have 256KB of Cache soldered on board which is notupgradeable.

CPU Upgrades

This motherboard can accommodate the following CPUs:

Uses the 321-pin Type 7 Zero Insertion Force (ZIF) CPU socket.
Supports the Pentium OverDrive Processor.
Not keyboard switchable.
Disable cache to slow down the system.

RAM Upgrades

Uses 4/8/16/32 MB 72-pin SIMMs, 60 or 70ns EDO or Fast Page Mode RAM.Supports only non-parity DRAM.

1. Bank by bank support for EDO or Fast Page Mode DRAM with automatic presence detect for EDO DRAM.60ns EDO required for 66 MHz bus speeds, and 70ns EDO required for 50 & 60 MHz bus speed.70ns Fast Page Mode required for 50, 60, and 66 MHz bus speeds.EDO and Fast Page Mode can be mixed in separate banks.

2. Four 32-bit SIMM sockets accept 4MB, 8MB, 16MB, 32MB in either single or double sided configurations.SIMMs must be added in pairs.SIMM sockets can be populated in any order.ONE or more SIMMs may be located under the peripheral bay in the Packard Bell "all-in-one" (Spectria) chassis.

3. Bank 0 will be populated as the default from the factory.

4. No configuration jumpers: BIOS detects memory size, and memory type (EDO or Fast Page Mode).

5. Memory voltage requirements: 5V.

Video Memory Upgrade

The PB660 uses CL-5446 Video Drivers.The PB660 has 2MB video memory and is not upgradeable further.
