Adaptec 2940

How is it possible to upgrade bios on aha-2940 scsi-controller. Current bios is 1.23 and I want to get the latest in order to get busspeed up to 41.5 Mhz. Bios 1.23 and earlier can't cope with 41.5

Hi Cablefaq ...

Adaptec has some info on the adaptec 2940 and biosupgrades :

Q: What is the difference between the AHA-2940U and AHA-2940AU?
A: The AHA-2940U is an OEM card and is not supported by Tech Support. It can be identified by the following: The banner displays AHA-2940U. It has a flash
bios. The original release was v1.23, the current release is v1.25. The ULTRA feature is implemented in SCSI Select: Configure/View Host Adapter: Advanced
Configuration, and is global in nature.
The AHA-2940AU is a channel product. The banner displays AHA-2940AU. It has a DIP EEPROM. The original BIOS version was v1.21, the current version is
v1.32 and is obtained via Tech Support. The ULTRA feature is implemented in SCSI Select: Configure/View Host Adapter: SCSI Device Configuration and is set
on a device basis.

Q: Can I update the BIOS of my AHA-294x to be ULTRA SCSI compliant?
A: No. The ULTRA option is only implemented on specific assemblies via chipset features.

so make sure which kind of adaptec 2940 you have and if you need more info , go to :
