1.0About This Manual

This manual describes how to set up and use the evaluation board and other components included in your Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® processor LV with Intel® E7520 Chipset and Intel® 6300ESB ICH Development Kit.

1.1Content Overview

Chapter 1.0, “About This Manual” – Description of conventions used in this manual and instructions for obtaining literature and contacting customer support.

Chapter 2.0, “Getting Started” – Complete instructions on how to configure the evaluation board and processor assembly by setting jumpers, connecting peripherals, providing power, and configuring the BIOS.

Chapter 3.0, “Theory of Operation” – Information on the system design.

Chapter 4.0, “Platform Management” – Description of jumper settings and functions, and pinout information for each connector.

Chapter 5.0, “Driver and OS Support” – List of supported drivers and operating systems.

Chapter 6.0, “Hardware Reference” – Reference information on the hardware, including locations of evaluation board components, connector pinout information, and jumper settings.

Chapter 7.0, “Board Setup Checklist” – Checklist of items to ensure proper functionality of the evaluation board.

Chapter 8.0, “Debug Procedure” – Debug procedure to determine baseline functionality for the Development Kit.

1.2Text Conventions

The following notations may be used throughout this manual:

# - The pound symbol (#) appended to a signal name indicates that the signal is active low.

Variables - Variables are shown in italics. Variables must be replaced with correct values.

Instructions - Instruction mnemonics are shown in uppercase. When you are programming, instructions are not case-sensitive. You may use either upperor lowercase.

Numbers - Hexadecimal numbers are represented by a string of hexadecimal digits followed by the character “h”. A zero prefix is added to numbers that begin with A through F. For example, FF is shown as 0FFh. Decimal and binary numbers are represented by their customary notations. That is, 255 is a decimal number and 1111 1111 is a binary number. In some cases, the character “b” is added for clarity.

Signal Names - Signal names are shown in uppercase. When several signals share a common name, an individual signal is represented by the signal name followed by a number, while the group is represented by the signal name followed by a variable (n). For example, the lower chip-select signals are named CS0#, CS1#, CS2#, and so on;

2.0Getting Started

This chapter identifies the Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® processor LV with Intel® E7520 Chipset and Intel® 6300ESB ICH Development Kit’s key components, features and specifications. It also describes how to set up the board for operation.

Note: This manual assumes you are familiar with basic concepts involved with installing and configuring hardware for a PC or server system.

2.1Overview

The Development Kit contains a baseboard with two Dual-Core Intel Xeon processors LV, Intel® E7520 MCH, 6300ESB, and other system board components and peripheral connectors. Various software and documentation are also included in the kit.

In addition to the included Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® processors LV 2.0 GHz processors, the following processors are also supported with this Development Kit:

Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® processor LV 1.66 GHz (dual-processor capable)

Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® processor ULV 1.66 GHz (dual-processor capable)

Celeron® processor 1.66 GHz (uni-processor only)

Celeron® processor 1.83 GHz (uni-processor only)

If you wish to use one of these options instead of the included processors, please contact your Intel sales representative. You will be sent new processor(s) and will need to download the latest microcode updates and BIOS revision specific to your new processor(s). There are currently two versions of BIOS. One version supports the LV and ULV versions, while the other version supports Celeron version.

Note: The evaluation board is shipped as an open system with standoffs allowing for maximum flexibility in changing hardware configuration and peripherals in a lab environment. Since the board is not in a protective chassis, the user is required to observe extra precautions when handling and operating the system. Some assembly is required before use.

2.5Before You Begin

 

Table 2 presents the additional hardware you may need for your Development Kit.

Warning:

Do not install the power supply until all other installation steps have been completed.

Table 2.

Additional Hardware

 

 

 

 

VGA Card and Monitor

You can use any standard VGA or greater resolution monitor using a VGA card.

 

 

 

 

Keyboard

You can use a keyboard with a PS/2 style connector or adapter as well as USB.

 

 

 

 

Mouse

You can use a mouse with a PS/2 style connector or adapter as well as USB.

 

 

 

 

Hard Drives

You can connect up to two IDE and two SATA devices to the evaluation board.

 

 

 

 

Floppy Drive

You can connect a floppy drive to the connector on the evaluation board. No floppy

 

(optional)

drives or cables are included in the Development Kit.

 

 

 

 

 

The evaluation board behaves much like a standard PC motherboard. Many PC-

 

Other Devices and

compatible peripherals can be attached and configured to work with the evaluation

 

board. For example, you may want to install a sound card or additional network

 

Adapters

 

adapters. You are responsible for procuring and installing any drivers required for

 

 

 

 

additional devices.

 

 

 

2.6Setting up the Evaluation Board

Once you have gathered the hardware described in Section 2.5, follow the steps below to set up your Development Kit. This manual assumes you are familiar with basic concepts involved with installing and configuring hardware for a PC or server system.

2.6.1Safety

Ensure a safe work environment. Make sure you are in a static-free environment before removing any components from their anti-static packaging. The evaluation board is susceptible to electrostatic discharge, which may cause product failure or unpredictable operation.

Caution: Connecting the wrong cable or reversing a cable may damage the evaluation board and may damage the device being connected. Since the board is not in a protective chassis, use caution when connecting cables to this product.

Note: Review the document provided with the Development Kit titled “Important Safety and Regulatory Information”. This document contains addition safety warnings and cautions that must be observed when using this development kit.

2.6.2Package Contents

Verify kit contents. Inspect the contents of your kit, and ensure that everything listed in Section 2.3 is included. Check for damage that may have occurred during shipment. Contact your sales representative if any items are missing or damaged.

Check jumper settings. Verify that the jumpers are set in their default state. Refer to Section 6.4 for detailed descriptions of all jumpers and their default settings indicated in bold.

2.6.3Installed Hardware

Verify installed hardware. Make sure the following hardware is populated on your evaluation board:

Two Dual-Core Intel Xeon processors LV with heatsinks

BIOS FWH

Battery in holder

Note: The CPU sockets have a screw locking mechanism. The socket has an indication to show if the CPU is locked in place.

Caution: The above hardware should have been correctly installed at the factory. If components are not installed correctly, DO NOT power on the board. Correctly re-install the components before proceeding. If you suspect that any of the kit components have been damaged, contact your Intel field sales representative or local distributor for assistance.

2.6.4Installing the Heatsinks for CPU(s) and MCH

Heatsink Installation: In order for the board to operate properly, a heatsink must be installed on the processors and on the E7520 MCH. DO NOT power on board without a CPU thermal solution. Heatsinks may already come pre-installed on both CPU(s) and MCH. Please refer to this section if you need to remove or re-install the heatsinks.

Tools Needed: Flat head screwdriver and Phillips head screwdriver

Consumable Items Needed: Disposable towels and isopropyl alcohol

Note: CPU heatsinks may be silver or copper in color.

Caution: Applying excess pressure may cause damage to the CPU.

Note: Do not turn power on until the CPU thermal solution has been installed.

2.6.5CPU Heatsink Installation

This section details how to install the CPU heatsink. This section may not apply if the CPU heatsink is pre-installed on the board.

Note: If the Thermal Interface Material (TIM) is scratched, scrape it off and replace with new material. If a replacement is needed, use a TIM with high thermal conductivity such as thermal grease or a phase change material. The gasket ensures the heatsink is sitting flat on the package.
