Chapter 1 General Information

Chapter 1 Introduction

1.1 Introduction

The PCM-9575 is a VIA low-power Eden/Ezra processor single board computer (SBC) with audio controller, a 4X AGP SVGA controller, a PCI 10/100Base-T Ethernet interface, one PCI slot, and one PC/104-Plus expansion connector. The PCM-9575’s design is based on the EBX form factor that provides support for PC/104 and PC/104-Plus module expansion. The EBX form factor also provides a convenient connector layout for easy assembly, more efficient cable connections and better overall embedded system integration. When using an Intel® Pentium® III processor, the PCM-9575 achieves outstanding performance that surpasses most SBCs in its class. This compact (only 5.75“ x 8”) unit offers all the functions of a single board industrial computer, but still fits in the space of a 5.25“ floppy drive.

On-board features include, four serial ports (three RS-232, one RS-232/ 422/485), one multi-mode parallel (ECP/EPP/SPP) port, two USB (Universal Serial Bus) ports, a floppy drive controller, and a keyboard/PS/2 mouse interface. The built-in high-speed PCI IDE controller supports both PIO and UDMA/100 bus master modes. Up to four IDE devices can be connected, including large hard disks, CD-ROM drives, and tape backup drives.

The PCM-9575 features power management to minimize power consumption. It complies with the “Green Function” standard and supports Doze, Standby and Suspend modes. In addition, the board‘s watchdog timer can automatically reset the system or generate an interrupt if the system stops due to a program bug or EMI.

Highly integrated multimedia SBC

The PCM-9575 is a highly integrated multimedia SBC that combines audio, video, and network functions on a single computer board the size of a 5.25" floppy drive. It provides 16-bit half-duplex, 8-bit full-duplex, integrated 3D audio, and up to 1024 x 768 resolution @ 16.8 M colors with 8/16/32MB system memory. Major on-board devices adopt PCI technology, to achieve outstanding computing performance when used with Intel® Pentium® processors. The PCM-9575 also supports TV-out that supports NTSC/PAL format for multimedia applications.

2.5 Setting Jumpers

You may configure your card to match the needs of your application by setting jumpers. A jumper is a metal bridge used to close an electric circuit. It consists of two metal pins and a small metal clip (often protected by a plastic cover) that slides over the pins to connect them. To “close” a jumper, you connect the pins with the clip. To “open” a jumper, you remove the clip. Sometimes a jumper will have three pins, labeled 1, 2 and 3. In this case you would connect either pins 1 and 2, or 2 and 3.

closed

closed 2-3

The jumper settings are schematically depicted in this manual as follows:.

closed

closed 2-3

A pair of needle-nose pliers may be helpful when working with jumpers.

If you have any doubts about the best hardware configuration for your application, contact your local distributor or sales representative before you make any changes.

Generally, you simply need a standard cable to make most connections.

2.6 Clear CMOS (JP4)

Warning! To avoid damaging the computer, always turn off the power supply before setting “Clear CMOS.” Before turning on the power supply, set the jumper back to “3.0 V Battery On.”

This jumper is used to erase CMOS data and reset system BIOS information.

The procedure for clearing CMOS is:

1.Turn off the system.

2.Short pin 2 and pin 3.

3.Return jumper to pins 1 and 2.

4.Turn on the system. The BIOS is now reset to its default setting

Chapter 2 Installation

2.7 Installing DIMMs

The procedure for installing DIMMs is described below. Please follow these steps carefully. The number of pins are different on either side of the breaks, so the module can only fit in one way. DIMM modules have different pin contacts on each side, and therefore have a higher pin density.

1.Make sure that the two handles of the DIMM socket are in the “open” position. i.e. The handles remain leaning outward.

2.Slowly slide the DIMM module along the plastic guides on both ends of the socket.

3.Press the DIMM module right down into the socket, until you hear a click. This is when the two handles have automatically locked the memory module into the correct position of the socket.

To remove the memory module, just push both handles outward, and the module will be ejected from the socket.

2.8 IDE, CDROM hard drive connector (CN14, CN16)

The PCM-9575 provides 2 IDE channels which you can attach up to four Enhanced Integrated Device Electronics hard disk drives or CDROM to the PCM-9575’s internal controller. The PCM-9575's IDE controller uses a PCI interface. This advanced IDE controller supports faster data transfer, PID mode 3, mode 4 and UDMA/100. The secondary channel supports UDMA/33 only.

2.8.1 Connecting the hard drive

Connecting drives is done in a daisy-chain fashion. It requires one of two cables (not included in this package), depending on the drive size. 1.8" and 2.5" drives need a 1 x 44-pin to 2 x 44-pin flat-cable connector. 3.5" drives use a 1 x 44-pin to 2 x 40-pin connector.

Wire number 1 on the cable is red or blue, and the other wires are gray.

1.Connect one end of the cable to CN14 or CN16. Make sure that the red (or blue) wire corresponds to pin 1 on the connector, which is labeled on the board (on the right side).

2.Plug the other end of the cable into the Enhanced IDE hard drive, with pin 1 on the cable corresponding to pin 1 on the hard drive.

PCM-9575 User’s Manual

14

(See your hard drive’s documentation for the location of the connector.)

If desired, connect a second drive as described above.

Unlike floppy drives, IDE hard drives can connect to either end of the cable. If you install two drives, you will need to set one as the master and one as the slave by using jumpers on the drives. If you install only one drive, set it as the master.

2.9 Solid State Disk

The PCM-9575 provides a CompactFlash™ card socket and DiskOnChip socket for Solid state disk solutions.

2.9.1 CompactFlash (CN26)

The CompactFlash card shares a secondary IDE channel which can be enabled/disabled via the BIOS settings.

2.10 Floppy drive connector (CN18)

You can attach up to two floppy drives to the PCM-9575’s on-board controller. You can use any combination of 5.25” (360 KB and 1.2 MB) and/ or 3.5” (720 KB, 1.44 MB, and 2.88 MB) drives.

A 34-pin daisy-chain drive connector cable is required for a dual-drive system. On one end of the cable is a 34-pin flat-cable connector. On the other end are two sets of floppy disk drive connectors. Each set consists of a 34-pin flat-cable connector (usually used for 3.5” drives) and a printed-circuit board connector (usually used for 5.25” drives).

2.10.1 Connecting the floppy drive

1.Plug the 34-pin flat-cable connector into CN18. Make sure that the red wire corresponds to pin one on the connector.

2.Attach the appropriate connector on the other end of the cable to the floppy drive(s). You can use only one connector in the set. The set on the end (after the twist in the cable) connects to the A: drive. The set in the middle connects to the B: drive.

3.If you are connecting a 5.25” floppy drive, line up the slot in the printed circuit board with the blocked-off part of the cable connector.

15

Chapter 2 Installation

If you are connecting a 3.5” floppy drive, you may have trouble determining which pin is number one. Look for a number printed on the circuit board indicating pin number one. In addition, the connector on the floppy drive may have a slot. When the slot is up, pin number one should be on the right. Check the documentation that came with the drive for more information.

If you desire, connect the B: drive to the connectors in the middle of the cable as described above.

In case you need to make your own cable, you can find the pin assignments for the board’s connector in Appendix C.

2.11 Parallel port connector (CN15)

Normally, the parallel port is used to connect the card to a printer. The PCM-9575 includes a multi-mode (ECP/EPP/SPP) parallel port accessed via CN15 and a 26-pin flat-cable connector. You will need an adapter cable if you use a traditional DB-25 connector. The adapter cable has a 26-pin connector on one end, and a DB-25 connector on the other.

The parallel port is designated as LPT1, and can be disabled or changed to LPT2 or LPT3 in the system BIOS setup.

The parallel port interrupt channel is designated to be IRQ7. You can select ECP/EPP DMA channel via BIOS setup.

2.12 Keyboard and PS/2 mouse connector (CN25)

The PCM-9575 board provides a keyboard connector that supports both a keyboard and a PS/2 style mouse. In most cases, especially in embedded applications, a keyboard is not used. If the keyboard is not present, the standard PC/AT BIOS will report an error or fail during power-on selftest (POST) after a reset. The PCM-9575’s BIOS standard setup menu allows you to select “All, But Keyboard” under the “Halt On” selection. This allows no-keyboard operation in embedded system applications, without the system halting under POST.

2.13 Power & HDD LED, Reset Button Connector

2.19 VGA/LCD/LVDS interface connections

The PCM-9575’s PCI SVGA interface can drive conventional CRT displays and is capable of driving a wide range of flat panel displays, including passive LCD and active LCD displays. The board has three connectors to support these displays: one for standard CRT VGA monitors, one for flat panel displays, and one for LVDS type LCD panels.

2.19.1 CRT display connector (CN8)

CN8 is a 16-pin, dual-inline header used for conventional CRT displays. A simple one-to-one adapter can be used to match CN8 to a standard 15pin D-SUB connector commonly used for VGA.

Pin assignments for CRT display connector CN8 are detailed in Appendix C.

2.19.2 Flat panel display connector (CN11)

CN11 consists of a 40-pin connector which can support a 24-bit LCD panel. It is Hirose’s product no. DF13A-40DP-1.25 V

The PCM-9575 provides a bias control signal on CN11 that can be used to control the LCD bias voltage. It is recommended that the LCD bias voltage not be applied to the panel until the logic supply voltage (+5 V or +3.3 V) and panel video signals are stable. Under normal operation, the control signal (ENAVEE) is active high. When the PCM-9575’s power is applied, the control signal is low until just after the relevant flat panel signals are present. CN11 can connect up to 24 bit TFT LCD.

2.19.3 Extension flat panel connector (CN10)

CN10 consists of a 20-pin connector which is Hirose’s product no. DF13A-20DP-1.25V. The PCM-9575 supports a 36-bit LCD panel which must be connected to both the CN11 (40-pin) and the CN10 (20-pin). The pin assignments for both CN11and the CN10 can be found in Appendix C

4.1 System test and initialization

These routines test and initialize board hardware. If the routines encounter an error during the tests, you will either hear a few short beeps or see an error message on the screen. There are two kinds of errors: fatal and non-fatal. The system can usually continue the boot up sequence with non-fatal errors. Non-fatal error messages usually appear on the screen along with the following instructions:

press <F1> to RESUME

Write down the message and press the F1 key to continue the bootup sequence.

4.1.1 System configuration verification

These routines check the current system configuration against the values stored in the board’s CMOS memory. If they do not match, the program outputs an error message. You will then need to run the BIOS setup program to set the configuration information in memory.

There are three situations in which you will need to change the CMOS settings:

1.You are starting your system for the first time

2.You have changed the hardware attached to your system

3.The CMOS memory has lost power and the configuration informa-

tion has been erased.
