I-O 3235 AFP/IPDS DIMM & Flash
for Connecting  HP LaserJet Printers to iSeries & zSeries

Plug-In IBM IPDS Printer Emulation
for HP LaserJet Printers


The I-O 3235 IPDS / SCS Flash or USB are plug-in options for the HP LaserJet models listed below to provide IPDS printer connectivity.  They provide support for  Advanced Function Printing (AFP) using IBM's Intelligent Printer Data Stream (IPDS) over Ethernet networks, from IBM iSeries AS/400 and zSeries S/390 Hosts.

It enables HP LaserJet Printers to print AFP/IPDS print jobs over an Ethernet LAN.  This winning combination provides high level AFP/IPDS printing from an IBM AS/400 and Mainframe system.

If you need AFP/IPDS on a other laser printers or multi-function printer (MFP) devices from companies like Canon, IBM, Konica, Kyocera-Mita, Lexmark, Ricoh, Sharp, Xerox, etc., please click on the following links:


The significant advantages of the I-O 3235 are:

  • Offloading the data conversion from the host: EBCDIC to ASCII conversion is done by the I-O 3235 at the printer. No host resources are used to convert data. Printing speeds are increased.

  • Configuration via front panel or Web page: The Flash/USB is inserted in one of the printerís available slots. Set up and configuration is easily accomplished through the printerís front panel or HP WebJetAdmin on newer models.

  • Support of all AFP/IPDS towers: All AFP/IPDS functions such as bar code, graphics, fonts, and overlay are fully supported.

  • Supports Advanced Function Printing (AFP) using IPDS protocol

  • SCS Printer Emulation: Can also be configured as a 3812-1 TN5250e printer session

  • Host controlled printing and page range printing

  • Edge to edge printing

  • Customized input tray

I-O has combined its extensive experience in host connectivity with HP's I/O Filter technology to develop a solution that allows multiple models of HP printers to print AFP/IPDS host print jobs. The I-O 3235 is available in two models to support a wide range of HP LaserJet Printers as listed below:

Features Benefits
AFP/IPDS printing on an HP printer

Eliminates the expense of a dedicated host AFP/IPDS printer.

AFP/IPDS printing over a LAN

Both AFP/IPDS host printing and standard LAN printing can be accomplished in an Ethernet environment.

Offloading of Data Conversion

Increased speed is a result of converting EBCDIC data at the printer rather than at the host or PC.


Printing can be done on both sides of a page. The full functionality of a duplex printer can be utilized.

Page Offset Function

Provides flexibility in page positioning with no need to modify applications.

Supports over 100 AFP/IPDS Fonts

There are more fonts to choose from than other AFP/IPDS interfaces.
