Hi-Speed USB 2.0 Support

NOTE

Computer systems that have an unshielded cable attached to a USB port might not meet FCC Class B requirements, even if no device or a low-speed USB device is attached to the cable. Use a shielded cable that meets the requirements for a full-speed USB device.

The Desktop Board supports up to six USB 2.0 ports (four ports routed to the back panel and two ports routed to an onboard USB 2.0 header). The USB 2.0 ports are backward compatible with USB 1.1 devices. USB 1.1 devices will function normally at USB 1.1 speeds.

USB 2.0 support requires both an operating system and drivers that fully support USB 2.0 transfer rates. Disabling Hi-Speed USB in the BIOS reverts all USB 2.0 ports to USB 1.1 operation. This may be required to accommodate operating systems that do not support USB 2.0.

Enhanced IDE Interface

The IDE interface handles the exchange of information between the processor and peripheral devices such as hard disks and optical drives inside the computer. The interface supports:

Up to two IDE devices (such as hard drives)

ATAPI-style devices (such as CD-ROM or DVD drives)

Older PIO Mode devices

Ultra DMA-33/66/100 modes

Serial ATA

The Desktop Board supports two Serial ATA channels (3.0 Gb/s), connecting one device per channel.

Expandability

The Desktop Board supports one PCI add-in card.

16

Desktop Board Features

BIOS

The BIOS provides the Power-On Self-Test (POST), the BIOS Setup program, the PCI and IDE auto-configuration utilities, and the video BIOS.

IDE Auto Configuration

If you install an IDE device (such as a hard drive) in your computer, the autoconfiguration utility in the BIOS automatically detects and configures the device for your computer. You do not need to run the BIOS Setup program after installing an IDE device. You can override the auto-configuration options by specifying manual configuration in the BIOS Setup program.

PCI Auto Configuration

If you install a PCI add-in card in your computer, the PCI auto-configuration utility in the BIOS automatically detects and configures the resources (IRQs, DMA channels, and I/O space) for that add-in card. You do not need to run the BIOS Setup program after you install a PCI add-in card.

Security Passwords

The BIOS includes security features that restrict whether the BIOS Setup program can be accessed and who can boot the computer. A supervisor password and a user password can be set for the BIOS Setup and for booting the computer, with the following restrictions:

The supervisor password gives unrestricted access to view and change all Setup options. If only the supervisor password is set, pressing <Enter> at the password prompt of Setup gives the user restricted access to Setup.

If both the supervisor and user passwords are set, you must enter either the supervisor password or the user password to access Setup. Setup options are then available for viewing and changing depending on whether the supervisor or user password was entered.

Setting a user password restricts who can boot the computer. The password prompt is displayed before the computer is booted. If only the supervisor password is set, the computer boots without asking for a password. If both passwords are set, you can enter either password to boot the computer.

For instructions on resetting the password, see Clearing Passwords on page 35.

17

Intel Desktop Board D945GCLF Product Guide

Power Management Features

Power management is implemented at several levels, including:

Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI)

Hardware support:

Power connectors

Fan headers

+5 V standby power indicator LED

LAN Wake capabilities

Wake from USB

Wake from PS/2 keyboard/mouse

PME# wakeup support

ACPI

ACPI gives the operating system direct control over the power management and Plug and Play functions of a computer. The use of ACPI with the Desktop Board requires an operating system that provides full ACPI support.

Hardware Support

Power Connectors

The Desktop Board has two power connectors. See Figure 13 on page 33 for the location of the power connectors.

18

Desktop Board Features

+5 V Standby Power Indicator LED

CAUTION

If the AC power has been switched off and the standby power indicator is still lit, disconnect the power cord before installing or removing any devices connected to the board. Failure to do so could damage the board and any attached devices.

The Desktop Board’s standby power indicator, shown in Figure 4, is lit when there is standby power to the system. This includes the DIMM socket and the PCI bus connector, even though the computer appears to be off.

Figure 4. Location of the Standby Power Indicator

For more information on standby current requirements for the Desktop Board, refer to the Technical Product Specification on the D945GCLF web page at: http://support.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/

19

Intel Desktop Board D945GCLF Product Guide

LAN Wake Capabilities

CAUTION

For LAN wake capabilities, the 5 V standby line for the power supply must be capable of delivering adequate +5 V standby current. Failure to provide adequate standby current when using this feature can damage the power supply.

LAN wakeup capabilities enable remote wake-up of the computer through a network. The LAN subsystem monitors network traffic and upon detecting a Magic Packet* frame, it asserts a wake-up signal that powers up the computer.

Wake from USB

NOTE

Wake from USB requires the use of a USB peripheral that supports wake from USB.

USB bus activity wakes the computer from an ACPI S1 state.

Wake from PS/2 Keyboard/Mouse

PS/2 keyboard/mouse activity wakes the computer from an ACPI S1 state.

PME# Wakeup Support

When the PME# signal on the PCI bus is asserted, the computer wakes from an ACPI S1 or S5 state.

Battery

A battery on the Desktop Board keeps the values in CMOS RAM and the clock current when the computer is turned off. Go to page 36 for instructions on how to replace the battery.

Real-Time Clock

The Desktop Board has a time-of-day clock and 100-year calendar. The battery on the Desktop Board keeps the clock current when the computer is turned off.

Intel Desktop Board D945GCLF Product Guide

Lead-free 2LI/Pb-free 2LI Board

The electronics industry is transitioning to European Union (EU) Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS)-compliant products. The RoHS legislation restricts the use of six materials. One of these restricted materials is lead. Lead is the most common and problematic of the RoHS restricted materials.

There are exemptions in RoHS that allow the use of lead in some very limited locations in electronic products. Maximum lead concentration values have been established for RoHS-compliant electronic products that allow up to 1000 ppm of lead.

Lead-free/Pb-free is a nickname that is often used (or misused) for RoHS-compliant products. In this case, the term "Lead-free/Pb-free" means that lead has been removed where required by the RoHS legislation but still may exist as an impurity below 1000 ppm.

The term "Lead-free 2LI/Pb-free 2LI" means lead-free second level interconnect (2LI). The balls, leads, or pads used to connect the component to a printed circuit board are lead-free, but the first level interconnect (FLI) is not lead-free. The use of lead in the FLI is acceptable because of the RoHS "flip chip" or "die bump" interconnect exemption.

Desktop Board D945GCLF is a lead-free second level interconnect product. Table 12 shows the lead-free second level interconnect marks as they appear on the board and accompanying collateral. These marks are based on JEDEC standard J-STD-609, “Marking and Labeling of Components, PCBs and PCBAs to Identify Lead, Lead Free and Other Attributes.”

For more information concerning Intel’s lead-free initiatives, refer to http://www.intel.com/technology/silicon/leadfree.htm.

Regulatory Compliance

Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS)

European Union RoHS

EU RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC restricts the use of the following six materials in various types of electronic and electrical equipment:

Lead

Mercury

Cadmium

Hexavalent chromium

Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB)

Polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE)

The maximum concentrations allowed are 0.1% or 1000 ppm (except for cadmium, which is limited to 0.01% or 100 ppm) by weight of homogeneous material.

Desktop Board D945GCLF complies with these restrictions.

China RoHS

“China RoHS” is the term used by industry generally to describe legislation implemented by the Ministry of Information Industry (MII) in the People's Republic of China for the control of pollution by electronic information products (EIP). The official title of the China RoHS regulation is “Management Methods for Controlling Pollution by Electronic Information Products.”

China RoHS bans the same substances and has the same limits as EU RoHS. However, the China RoHS regulation requires specific product marking and a selfdeclaration of the controlled substances contained in each product.

Desktop Board D945GCLF is a China RoHS-compliant product.

The required China RoHS mark indicates the product’s Environmental Friendly Usage Period (EFUP). The EFUP is defined as the number of years for which listed controlled substances will not leak or chemically deteriorate while in the product. The EFUP for Intel Desktop Boards has been determined to be 10 years.

The EFUP for Desktop Board D945GCLF is shown in Table 13.
