MB899 User’s Manual

INTRODUCTION

Introduction

Product Description

The MB899 Mini ITX board incorporates the Mobile Intel® 945GM Express Chipset for Embedded Computing, consisting of the Intel® 945GM Graphic Memory Controller Hub (GMCH) and Intel® I/O Controller Hub 7-M (ICH7-M), an optimized integrated graphics solution with a 533MHz and 667MHz front-side bus. Dimensions of the board are 170mm x 170mm.

The integrated powerful 3D graphics engine, based on Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 950 (Intel® GMA 950) architecture, operates at core speeds of up to 400 MHz. It features a low-power design, is validated with the Intel® Core Duo and Intel® Core Solo processors on 65nm process. With dual channel DDR2 667MHz two DIMM socket on board, the board supports up to 4GB of DDR2 system memory.

Intel® Graphics supports a unique intelligent memory management scheme called Dynamic Video Memory Technology (DVMT). DVMT handles diverse applications by providing the maximum (224MB) availability of system memory for general computer usage, while supplying additional graphics memory when a 3D-intensive application requests it. The Intel GMA 950 graphics architecture also takes advantage of the high-performance Intel processor. Intel GMA 950 graphics supports Dual Independent Display technology.

The main features of the board are:

Supports Intel® CoreTM 2 Duo(Merom-Napa Refresh), Intel® CoreTM Duo/Solo mobile processors

Supports up to 2.33GHz, 533MHz/667MHz FSB Two DDR2 SDRAM DIMM, Max. 4GB memory

Onboard 10/100 BaseT and Marvell PCI-Express Gigabit LAN Intel® 945GM Express VGA for CRT / LVDS

2x SATA, 6x USB 2.0, 2x COM, Watchdog timer, 1394

1x MiniPCI, 1x MiniPCI-E, 1x PCI, 1xPCI-E(x1) slots, optional DVI

Optional daughter cards:

ID390: Chrontel 7308, supports 24 bit single or dual LVDS channel ID390C: Chrontel, 7021, supports CRT

ID391: Chrontel 7307C, single DVI (connector on cable) ID391D: Chrontel 7307C, dual DVI (connector on cable)

INSTALLATIONS

Installing the CPU

The MB899 board supports a Socket 478MT (Napa) processor socket for Intel® CoreTM 2 Duo , Intel® CoreTM Duo and Intel® CoreTM Solo mobile processors.

The processor socket comes with a screw to secure the processor. As shown in the left picture below, loosen the screw first before inserting the processor. Place the processor into the socket by making sure the notch on the corner of the CPU corresponds with the notch on the inside of the socket. Once the processor has slide into the socket, fasten the screw. Refer to the figures below.

NOTE: Ensure that the CPU heat sink and the CPU top surface are in total contact to avoid CPU overheating problem that would cause your system to hang or be unstable.

Installing and Removing Memory Modules

To install the DDR2 modules, locate the memory slot on the board and perform the following steps:

1.Hold the DDR2 module so that the key of the DDR2 module align with those on the memory slot.

2.Gently push the DDR2 module in an upright position until the clips of the slot close to hold the DDR2 module in place when the DDR2 module touches the bottom of the slot.

3.To remove the DDR2 module, press the clips with both hands.
