AAEON assumes no liability under the terms of this warranty as a consequence of such events.

Because of AAEON's high quality-control standards and rigorous testing, most of our customers never need to use our repair service. If an AAEON product is defective, it will be repaired or replaced at no charge during the warranty period. For out-of-warranty repairs, you will be billed according to the cost of replacement materials, service time, and freight. Please consult your dealer for more details.

If you think you have a defective product, follow these steps:

1.Collect all the information about the problem encountered. (For example, CPU type and speed, AAEON products used, other hardware and software used, etc.) Note anything abnormal and list any on-screen messages you get when the problem occurs.

2.Call your dealer and describe the problem. Please have your manual, product, and any helpful information readily available.

3.If your product is diagnosed as defective, obtain an RMA (return material authorization) number from your dealer. This allows us to process your return more quickly.

4.Carefully pack the defective product, a fully-completed Repair and Replacement Order Card and a photocopy proof of purchase date (such as your sales receipt) in a shippable container. A product returned without proof of the purchase date is not eligible for warranty service.

5.Write the RMA number visibly on the outside of the package and ship it prepaid to your dealer.

Introduction

The SBC-658 is an all-in-one Celeron/Pentium III FC-chip processor based single board computer (SBC) with a PCI Flat Panel controller, a PCI 100Base-T Ethernet interface. When using an Intel Pentium III processors, the SBC-658 achieves outstanding performance that surpasses any other SBC in its class. In addition, the onboard SSD interface supports M-Systems DiskOnChip 2000 series, memory capacity up to 288 MB.

Onboard features include two serial ports (one RS-232, one RS-232/ 422/485), one multi-mode parallel (ECP/EPP/SPP) port, Pin header for 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 Ultra DMA/33 mode. Up to two IDE devices can be connected, including large hard disks, CD-ROM drives, and tape backup drives, etc.

The SBC-658 also features power management to minimize power consumption. It complies with the ACPI standard and supports three types of power saving features: Doze mode, Standby mode, and Suspend mode. In addition, the board's watchdog timer can automatically reset the system or generate an interrupt in case the system stops due to a program bug or EMI.

Highly integrated SBC

The SBC-658 is a highly integrated SBC that combines, video, and network functions on a single computer board. It provides up to 1024 x 768 resolution @ 64K colors with on-chip 2MB SDRAM display memory. Major onboard devices adopt PCI technology to achieve outstanding computing performance making the SBC-658 one of the world's best and most powerful all-in-one Single Board Computer.

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.
