Setting jumpers

You can configure your card to match the needs of your application by setting jumpers. A jumper is the simplest kind of electric switch. 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.

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.

14 SBC-658 User Manual

CPU installing and upgrading

You can upgrade to a more powerful Celeron CPU at any time. Simply remove the old CPU, install the new one, and set the jumpers for the new CPU speed.

Warning! Always disconnect the power cord from your chassis when you are working on it. Do not make connections while the power is on as

sensitive electronic components can be damaged by the sudden rush of power. Only experienced electronics personnel should open the system chassis.

Caution! Always ground yourself to remove any static charge before touching the system board.

Modern electronic devices are very sensitive to static electric charges. Use a grounding wrist strap at all times. Place all electronic components on a static-dissipative surface or in a staticshielded bag when they are not in the chassis.

Install a CPU in the FC-370 socket

SBC-658 Series provides a Flip-Chip (FC) socket for easy CPU installation.

1.Make sure the FC-370 socket lever is in the upright position. To raise the lever, pull it out to the side a little and raise it as far as it will go.

2.Place the CPU in the empty socket. Follow the instructions that came wth the CPU. If you have no instructions, do the following: Carefully align the CPU so it is parallel to the socket and the notch on the corner of the CPU corresponds with the notch on the inside of the socket. Gently slide the CPU in. It should insert easily. If it doesn't, pull the lever up a little more.

Chapter 2 Installation 15

3.Press the lever down. The plate will slide forward. You will feel some resistance as the pressure starts to secure the CPU in the socket. This normal and won't damage the CPU.

When the CPU is installed, the lever should snap into place at the side of the socket.

Note: To remove a CPU, pull the lever out to the side a little and raise it as far as it will go. Lift out the CPU chip.

When you install a new CPU, be sure to adjust the board settings, such as CPU type and CPU clock. Improper settings may damage the CPU.

16 SBC-658 User Manual

Installing SDRAM (DIMMs)

System Memory

The upper edge of the SBC-658 contains one sockets for 168 pins dual inline memory module (DIMM). The socket uses 3.3 V unbuffered synchronous (SDRAM). DIMM is available in capacities of 16, 32, 64, 128, or 256 MB. The socket can be filled in the DIMM of any size, giving your SBC-658 single board computer between 16 and 256 MB of memory.

Supplementary information about DIMM

The SBC-658 can only accept PC-100 SDRAM DIMM Module.

Single-sided modules are typically 16 or 128 MB; double-sided modules are usually 32 or 256 MB.

Memory Installation Procedures

To install DIMM, first make sure the two handles of the DIMM socket are in the "open" position. i.e. The handles remain outward. Slowly slide the DIMM module along the plastic guides on both ends of the socket. Then 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 DIMM socket. (See Figure below) To take away the memory module, just push both handles outward, and the memory module will be ejected by the mechanism in the socket.

26 SBC-658 User Manual

Keyboard and PS/2 mouse connector (CN3, CN15)

The SBC-658 provides a keyboard connector which supports both a keyboard and a PS/2 style mouse. In most cases, especially in embedded applications, a keyboard is not used. The standard PC/ AT BIOS will report an error or fail during power-on-self-test (POST) after a reset if the keyboard is not present. The mainboard BIOS Advanced setup menu allows you to select "Present" or "Absent" under the "System Keyboard" section. This allows no-keyboard operation in embedded system applications without the system halting under POST (power-on-self-test).

Floppy drive connector (CN12)

You can attach up to two floppy drives to the mainboard controller. You can use any combination of 5¼" (360 KB and 1.2 MB) and/or 3½" (720 KB, 1.44 MB, and 2.88 MB) drives.

A 34-pin daisy-chain drive connector cable is required for a dualdrive 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 3½" drives) and a printed-circuit board connector (usually used for 5¼" drives).

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

CN12

40 SBC-658 User Manual

Connecting the floppy drive

1.Plug the 34-pin flat-cable connector into CN12. Make sure that the red or blue wire corresponds to pin 1 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 5¼" floppy drive, line up the slot in the printed circuit board with the blocked-off part of the cable connector.

If you are connecting a 3½" floppy drive, you may have trouble determining which pin is pin number 1. Look for a number printed on the circuit board indicating pin number 1. Also,

the connector on the floppy drive connector may have a slot. When the slot is up, pin number 1 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.

DiskOnChip (DOC) 2000 Installation

When the DOC is installed correctly, a DOC will work like an HDD or an FDD. To install the DOC on the SBC-658, follow the instructions below:

1.Plug the DOC into the socket. Make sure pin 1 of the DOC is aligned with pin 1 of the socket.

2.Push the DOC into the socket until it is firmly seated in the socket.

Caution: the DOC may be permanently damage if it is installed incorrectly.

3. Set the jumper for the memory address of the DOC.

Note:

The memory shadow function sometimes will create conflicts with the memory window. You should disable the memory shadow from the BIOS SETUP if the DOC cannot be accessed.

Configure DOC as a boot device

To configure a DOC as a boot drive, you should copy the operating system files onto the DOC. The following procedure is an example of the initialization process.

1.Install a DOC into your system.

2.Insert a bootable floppy disk in drive A: and boot the system.

3.At the DOS prompt, type SYS C: to transfer the DOS system files to the DOC (assuming the DiskOnChip is installed as drive C:). Reboot the system.

4.Go to the BIOS Setup Utility by hitting the <DEL> key. Set the type of Primary Master or C: Drive as Not Installed.

5.Remove the floppy disk from the drive A: and leave the BIOS Setup Utility. The system should boot from the DOC.

Award BIOS Setup

This chapter describes how to configure the BIOS for the system.

Chapter 3 Award BIOS Setup 45

Starting setup

The Award BIOS is immediately activated when you first turn on the computer. The BIOS reads system configuration information in CMOS RAM and begins the process of checking out the system and configuring it through the power-on self test (POST).

When these preliminaries are finished, the BIOS seeks an operating system on one of the data storage devices (hard drive, floppy drive, etc.). The BIOS launches the operating system and hands control of system operations to it.

During POST, you can start the Setup program in one of two ways: 1.By pressing Del immediately after switching the system on, or 2.By pressing Del or pressing Ctrl-Alt-Esc when the following message appears briefly at the bottom of the screen during POST:

TO ENTER SETUP BEFORE BOOT PRESS DEL KEY

If the message disappears before you respond and you still wish to enter Setup, restart the system to try again by turning it OFF then ON or pressing the RESET button on the system case. You may also restart by simultaneously pressing Ctr-Alt-Del. If you do not press the keys at the correct time and the system does not boot, an error message appears and you are again asked to

Press F1 to pop up a small help window that describes the appropriate keys to use and the possible selections for the highlighted item. To exit the Help Window press Esc or the F1 key again.

In Case of Problems

If, after making and saving system changes with Setup, you discover that your computer no longer is able to boot, the AwardBIOS supports an override to the CMOS settings that resets your system to its default configuration.

You can invoke this override by immediately pressing Insert; when you restart your computer. You can restart by either using the ON/ OFF switch, the RESET button or by pressing Ctrl-Alt-Delete.

The best advice is to alter only settings that you thoroughly understand. In particular, do not change settings in the Chipset screen without a good reason. The Chipset defaults have been carefully chosen by Award Software or your system manufacturer for the best performance and reliability. Even a seemingly small change to the Chipset setup may causing the system to become unstable.

Standard CMOS setup

When you choose the STANDARD CMOS SETUP option from the INITIAL SETUP SCREEN menu, the screen below is displayed.

Chapter 3 Award BIOS Setup 51

This standard setup menu allows users to configure system components such as the date, time, hard disk drive, floppy drive, display, and memory. Online help for each field can be accessed by pressing F1.

Date and Time Configuration

The BIOS determines the day of the week from the other date information. This field is for information only.

Press the left or right arrow key to move to the desired field (date, month, year). Press the PgUp/- or PgDn/+ key to increment the setting, or type the desired value into the field.

The time format is based on the 24-hour military-time clock. For example, 1 p.m. is 13:00:00. Press the left or right arrow key to move to the desired field. Press the PgUp/- or PgDn/+ key to increment the setting, or type the desired value into the field.

HARD DISKS

The BIOS supports up to two IDE drives. This section does not show information about other IDE devices, such as a CD-ROM drive, or about other hard drive types, such as SCSI drives.

NOTE: We recommend that you select type AUTO for all drives.

The BIOS can automatically detect the specifications and optimal operating mode of almost all IDE hard drives. When you select type AUTO for a hard drive, the BIOS detects its specifications during POST, every time the system boots.

If you do not want to select drive type AUTO, other methods of

52 SBC-658 User Manual

selecting the drive type are available:

1.Match the specifications of your installed IDE hard drive(s) with the preprogrammed values for drive types 1 through 45.

2.Select USER and enter values into each drive parameter field.

3.Use the IDE HDD AUTO DECTECTION function in Setup.

Here is a brief explanation of drive specifications:

•Type: The BIOS contains a table of pre-defined drive types. Each defined drive type has a specified number of cylinders, number of heads, write precompensation factor, landing zone, and number of sectors. Drives whose specifications do not accommodate any pre-defined type are classified as type USER.

•Size: Disk drive capacity (approximate). Note that this size is usually slightly greater than the size of a formatted disk given by a disk-checking program.

Cyls: Number of cylinders

Head: Number of heads

Precomp: Write precompensation cylinder

Landz: Landing zone

Sector: Number of sectors

Mode: Auto, Normal, large, or LBA

-Auto: The BIOS automatically determines the optimal mode.

-Normal: Maximum number of cylinders, heads, and sectors supported are 1024, 16, and 63.

-Large: For drives that do not support LBA and have more than 1024 cylinders.

Chapter 3 Award BIOS Setup 53

- LBA (Logical Block Addressing): During drive accesses, the IDE controller transforms the data address described by sector, head, and cylinder number into a physical block address, significantly improving data transfer rates. For drives with greater than 1024 cylinders.

Halt On

During the power-on-self-test (POST), the computer stops if the BIOS detects a hardware error. You can tell the BIOS to ignore certain errors during POST and continue the boot-up process. These are the selections:

No errors: POST does not stop for any errors.

All errorsIf: the BIOS detects any non-fatal error, POST stops and prompts you to take corrective action.

All, But Keyboard: POST does not stop for a keyboard error, but stops for all other errors.All, But DiskettePOST does not stop for diskette drive errors, but stops for all other errors.

All, But Disk/Key: POST does not stop for a keyboard or disk error, but stops for all other errors.

Memory

You cannot change any values in the Memory fields; they are only for your information. The fields show the total installed random access memory (RAM) and amounts allocated to base memory, extended memory, and other (high) memory. RAM is counted in kilobytes (KB: approximately one thousand bytes) and megabytes (MB: approximately one million bytes).

RAM is the computer's working memory, where the computer stores programs and data currently being used, so they are accessible to the CPU. Modern personal computers may contain up to 64 MB, 128 MB, or more.

Base Memory

Typically 640 KB. Also called conventional memory. The DOS operating system and conventional applications use this area.

Chapter 3 Award BIOS Setup 55

ExtendedMemory

Above the 1-MB boundary. Early IBM personal computers could not use memory above 1 MB, but current PCs and their software can use extended memory.

Other Memory

Between 640 KB and 1 MB; often called High memory. DOS may load terminate-and-stay-resident (TSR) programs, such as device drivers, in this area, to free as much conventional memory as possible for applications. Lines in your CONFIG.SYS file that start with LOADHIGH load programs into high memory.

56 SBC-658 User Manual

BIOS features setup

By choosing the BIOS FEATURES SETUP option from the INITIAL SETUP SCREEN menu, the screen below is displayed.

Chapter 3 Award BIOS Setup 57

The displayed configuration is based on the manufacturer's SETUP DEFAULTS settings.

Virus Warning

When enabled, you receive a warning message if a program (specifically, a virus) attempts to write to the boot sector or the partition table of the hard disk drive. You should then run an antivirus program. Keep in mind that this feature protects only the boot sector, not the entire hard drive.

NOTE: Many disk diagnostic programs that access the boot sector table can trigger the virus warning message. If you plan to run such a program, we recommend that you first disable the virus warning.

CPU Internal Cache/External Cache

Cache memory is additional memory that is much faster than conventional DRAM (system memory). CPUs from 486-type on up contain internal cache memory, and most, but not all, modern PCs have additional (external) cache memory. When the CPU requests data, the system transfers the requested data from the main DRAM into cache memory, for even faster access by the CPU.

The External Cache field may not appear if your system does not have external cache memory.

CPU L2 Cache ECC Checking

When you select Enabled, memory checking is enable when the external cache contains ECC SRAMs.

Quick Power On Self Test

Select Enabled to reduce the amount of time required to run the power-on-self-test (POST). A quick POST skips certain steps. We recommend that you normally disable quick POST. Better to find a problem during POST than lose data during your work.

58 SBC-658 User Manual

Shadow

Software that resides in a read-only memory (ROM) chip on a device is called firmware. The AwardBIOS permits shadowing of firmware such as the system BIOS, video BIOS, and similar operating instructions that come with some expansion peripherals, such as, for example, a SCSI adaptor.

Shadowing copies firmware from ROM into system RAM, where the CPU can read it through the 16-bit or 32-bit DRAM bus. Firmware not shadowed must be read by the system through the 8- bit X-bus. Shadowing improves the performance of the system BIOS and similar ROM firmware for expansion peripherals, but it also reduces the amount of high memory (640 KB to 1 MB) available for loading device drivers, etc.

Enable shadowing into each section of memory separately. Many system designers hardwire shadowing of the system BIOS and eliminate a System BIOS Shadow option.

Video BIOS shadows into memory area C8000-DFFFF. The remaining areas shown on the BIOS Features Setup screen may be occupied by other expansion card firmware. If an expansion peripheral in your system contains ROM-based firmware, you need to know the address range the ROM occupies to shadow it into the correct area of RAM.

Chapter 3 Award BIOS Setup 59

CHIPSET features setup

By choosing the CHIPSET FEATURES SETUP option from the INITIAL SETUP SCREEN menu, the screen below is displayed.

60 SBC-658 User Manual

The displayed configuration is based on the manufacturer's SETUP DEFAULTS settings.

This section allows you to configure the system based on the specific features of the installed chipset. This chipset manages bus speeds and access to system memory resources, such as SDRAM. It also coordinates communications between the conventional ISA bus and the PCI bus. It must be stated that these items should never need to be altered. The default settings have been chosen because they provide the best operating conditions for your system. The only time you might consider making any changes would be if you discovered that data was being lost while using your system.

Because of the complexity and technical nature of some of the options, not all of the options are described here.

SDRAM RAS-to-CAS Delay

This field lets you control the number of DCLKs between a Row Activate command and a read or write command.

SDRAM RAS Precharge Time

The precharge time is the number of cycles it takes for the RAS to accumulate its charge before DRAM refresh. If insufficient time is allowed, refresh may be incomplete and the DRAM may fail to retain data. This field applies only if synchronous DRAM is installed in the system.

SDRAM CAS Latency Time

When synchronous DRAM is installed, you can control the number of CLKs between when the SDRAMs sample a read command and when the contoller samples read data from the SDRAMs. Do not reset this field from the default value specified by the system designer.

Chapter 3 Award BIOS Setup 61

SDRAM Precharge Control

When Enabled, all CPU cycles to SDRAM result in an All Banks Precharge Command on the SDRAM interface.

DRAM Data Integrity Mode

Select Non-ECC or ECC (error-correcting code), according to the type of installed DRAM.

System BIOS Cacheable

Selecting Enabled allows caching of the system BIOS ROM at F0000h-FFFFFh, resulting in better system performance. However, if any program writes to this memory area, a system error may result.

Video BIOS Cacheable

Selecting Enabled allows caching of the video BIOS ROM at C0000h to C7FFFh, resulting in better video performance. However, if any program writes to this memory area, a system error may result.

Video RAM Cacheable

Selecting Enabled allows caching of the video memory (RAM) at A0000h to AFFFFh, resulting in better video performance. However, if any program writes to this memory area, a memory access error may result.

8/16 Bit I/O Recovery Time

The I/O recovery mechanism adds bus clock cycles between PCIoriginated I/O cycles to the ISA bus. This delay takes place because the PCI bus is so much faster than the ISA bus.

These two fields let you add recovery time (in bus clock cycles) for 16-bit and 8-bit I/O.

62 SBC-658 User Manual

Memory Hole at 15M-16M

You can reserve this area of system memory for ISA adapter ROM. When this area is reserved, it cannot be cached. The user information of peripherals that need to use this area of system memory usually discusses their memory requirements.

Passive Release

When Enabled, CPU to PCI bus accesses are allowed during passive release. Otherwise, the arbiter only accepts another PCI master access to local DRAM.

Delayed Transaction

The chipset has an embedded 32-bit posted write buffer to support delay transactions cycles. Select Enabled to support compliance with PCI specification version 2.1.

Auto Detect DIMM/PCI Clk

When the Auto Detect DIMM/PCI clk enable, the Utility will automatically detect the DIMM/PCI clock in your system.

Spread Spectrum

When the system clock generator pulses, the extreme values of the pulse generate excess EMI. Enabling pulse spectrum spread modulation changes the extreme values from spikes to flat curves, thus reducing EMI. This benefit may in some cases be outweighed by problems with timing-critical devices, such as a clock-sensitive SCSI device

IN0-IN6(V)

These fields display the current voltage of up to seven voltage input lines, if your computer contains a monitoring system.

MODEM Use IRQ

Name the interrupt request (IRQ) line assigned to the modem (if any) on your system. Activity of the selected IRQ always awakens the system.

Doze Mode

After the selected period of system inactivity, the CPU clock throttles to a small percentage of its duty cycle between 10 percent and 25 percent for most chipsets. All other devices still operate at full speed.

66 SBC-658 User Manual

Standby Mode

After the selected period of system inactivity, the CPU clock stops, the hard drive enters an idle state, and the L2 cache enters a powersave mode. All other devices still operate at full speed.

Suspend Mode

After the selected period of system inactivity, the chipset enters a hardware suspend mode, stopping the CPU clock and possibly causing other system devices to enter power management modes.

HDD Power Down

After the selected period of drive inactivity, any system IDE devices compatible with the ATA-2 specification or later power manage themselves, putting themselves into an idle state after the specified timeout and then waking themselves up when accessed.

Throttle Duty Cycle

When the system enters Doze mode, the CPU clock runs only part of the time. You may select the percent of time that the clock runs.

VGA Active Monitor

When Enabled, any video activity restarts the global timer for Standby mode.

IRQ8 Break [Event From] Suspend

You can select Enabled or Disabled for monitoring of IRQ8 (the Real Time Clock) so it does not awaken the system from Suspend mode.

Software drivers

This chapter describes the operation and installation of the display drivers supplied on the Supporting CD-ROM that are shipped with your product.

The onboard VGA adapter is based on the CHIPS VGA Flat Panel/CRT controller and is fully IBM VGA compatible. This controller offers a large set of extended functions and higher resolutions. If you intend to use your VGA adapter in standard VGA modes only, you do not need to install any of these drivers. Since your VGA adapter is fully compatible, it does not require any special drivers to operate in standard modes.

The purpose of the enclosed software drivers is to take advantage of the extended features of the CHIPS VGA Flat Panel/CRT controller.

Hardware configuration

Some of the high-resolution drivers provided in this package will work only in certain system configurations. If a driver does not display correctly, try the following:

1.Change the display controller to CRT-only mode, rather than flat panel or simultaneous display mode. Some high-resolution drivers will display correctly only in CRT mode.

2.If a high-resolution mode is not supported on your system, try using a lower-resolution mode. For example, 1024 x 768 mode will not work on some systems, but 800 x 600 mode is supported on most.
