1.1 Introduction
The PPC-120/140 panel PC is a multimedia Pentium® MMX
processor-based computer that is designed to serve as a human machine
interface (HMI) and as a desktop computer. It is a PC-based system with
12.1"/13.8" color TFT or STN LCD display, on-board PCI Ethernet
controller, multi-COM port interfaces and a 16-bit audio controller. With
built-in CD-ROM drive, floppy drive and PCMCIA expansion sockets, the
PPC-120/140 is as compact and user-friendly as a notebook computer.
Unlike notebook computers, the PPC-120/140 is more durable and
versatile in all applications. The panel PC can be placed on a desktop to
replace the traditional desktop computer. In addition, its "fit anywhere"
design makes it very flexible and able to be used in many different kinds
of installations. It can be wall mounted, panel mounted or stood upright on
a desktop.
For system integrators, this simple, complete, compact and highly
integrated multimedia system lets you easily build a panel PC into your
applications. Common industrial applications include factory automation
systems, precision machinery, and production process control. It is also
suitable for many nonindustrial applications, including interactive kiosk
systems, entertainment management, and car park automation. Our panel
PC is a reliable, cost-effective solution to your application's processing
requirements.

2.4 Running the BIOS Setup Program
Your panel PC is likely to have been properly set up and configured by
your dealer prior to delivery. You may still find it necessary to use the
panel PC's BIOS (Basic Input-Output System) setup program to change
system configuration information, such as the current date and time or
your type of hard drive. The setup program is stored in read-only memory
(ROM). It can be accessed either when you turn on or reset the panel PC,
by pressing the "Del" key on your keyboard immediately after powering
on the computer.
The settings you specify with the setup program are recorded in a special
area of memory called CMOS RAM. This memory is backed up by a
battery so that it will not be erased when you turn off or reset the system.
Whenever you turn on the power, the system reads the settings stored in
CMOS RAM and compares them to the equipment check conducted
during the power on self-test (POST). If an error occurs, an error message
will be displayed on screen, and you will be prompted to run the setup
program.
If you want to change the setup of BIOS, refer to Chapter 9 for more
detailed information.

PPC-120/140 User's Manual
2.5 Installing System Software
Recent releases of operating systems from major vendors include setup
programs which load automatically and guide you through hard disk
preparation and operating system installation. The guidelines below will
help you determine the steps necessary to install your operating system on
the panel PC hard drive.
Note:
Some distributors and system integrators may have
already pre-installed system software prior to shipment
of your panel PC.
If required, insert your operating system's installation or setup diskette
into the diskette drive until the release button pops out. (See Fig. 3-1.)
The BIOS of the panel PC supports system boot-up directly from the
CD-ROM drive. You may also insert your system installation CD-ROM
into the CD-ROM drive. (See Fig. 3-2.) Refer to Chapter 9 - BIOS Setup
if you wish to change the BIOS settings.
Power on your panel PC or reset the system by pressing the
"Ctrl"+"Alt"+"Del" keys simultaneously. The panel PC will automatically
load the operating system from the diskette or CD-ROM.
If you are presented with the opening screen of a setup or installation
program, follow the instructions on screen. The setup program will guide
you through preparation of your hard drive, and installation of the
operating system.
If you are presented with an operating system command prompt, such as
A:\>, then you must partition and format your hard drive, and manually
copy the operating system files to it. Refer to your operating system user's
manual for instructions on partitioning and formatting a hard drive.
2.6 Installing the Drivers
After installing your system software, you will be able to set up the
Ethernet, SVGA, audio, and touchscreen functions. All the drivers except
the CD-ROM drive driver are stored in a CD-ROM disc entitled "Drivers
and Utilities". The CD-ROM drive driver is stored in a floppy disk. Both
the CD-ROM and the floppy disk can be found in your accessory box.

the corner of the square array of pin holes. An arrowhead printed on
the motherboard points to the end of the lever. (See Fig. 4-3 overleaf.)
6. Slide the CPU in gently. It should insert easily. If not, pull the lever up
a little more and make sure the pins of the CPU correspond with the
holes of the socket. DO NOT USE EXCESSIVE FORCE!
7. Press the lever down. The plate will slide forward.
8. Place the heatsink on top of the CPU and tighten it with the heatsink
clip (shown in Fig. 4-3).

4.5 Installing the SDRAM Memory Module
You can install from 16 MB to 128 MB of SDRAM memory. The panel
PC system provides one 168-pin DIMM (Double Inline Memory Module)
socket and supports 3.3 V SDRAM with a minimum speed of 12 ns.
Note:
The module can fit into the socket only one way. Pin 1 of
the DIMM module must line up with the small arrowhead
printed on the motherboard next to the DIMM socket.
The golden pins of the module must point down into the
DIMM socket.
1. Detach and remove the rear cover and CPU cover.
2. Push the two white eject levers on each side of the DIMM outward
until they are separated from the black vertical posts. (See Fig. 4-4.)

5.1.1 Setting jumpers
You can configure your panel PC to match the needs of your application
by setting jumpers. A jumper is the simplest kind of electrical 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 pins 2 and 3.

The jumper settings are schematically depicted in this manual as follows:

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.

5.2 CPU Installation and Upgrading
You can upgrade to a higher power Pentium®, AMD or Cyrix processor at
any time. Simply remove the old CPU, install the new one, and set the
jumpers for the new CPU type and speed.
5.2.1 System clock setting (JP11, JP8)
JP11 and JP8 are used to set the CPU and PCI bus speeds respectively, to
optimize the system's performance. The system chipset will sense the JP8
setting to get the bus frequency, then adjust its internal timing. JP11 is
used to set the CPU and PCI clock. Refer to the CPU speed reference
table for instructions on adjusting the internal clocks according to the base
CPU speed.

5.5 Watchdog Timer Configuration
An on-board watchdog timer reduces the chance of disruptions which
EMP (electromagnetic pulse) interference can cause. This is an invaluable
protective device for standalone or unmanned applications. Setup involves
one jumper and running the control software. (Refer to Appendix B.)
5.5.1 Watchdog activity selection (JP15)
When the watchdog timer activates (i.e. CPU processing has come to a
halt), it can reset the system or generate an interrupt on IRQ11. This can
be set via jumper JP15 as shown below:

7.1 Introduction
The PPC-120/140 has an on-board PCI flat panel/VGA interface. The
specifications and features are described as follows:
Chipset
The PPC-120/140 uses a C&T 65555 chipset for its PCI/SVGA controller.
It supports many popular LCD, EL, and gas plasma flat panel displays and
conventional analog CRT monitors. The 65555 VGA BIOS supports
monochrome LCD, EL, color TFT and STN LCD flat panel displays. In
addition, it also supports interlaced and non-interlaced analog monitors
(color and monochrome VGA) in high-resolution modes while
maintaining complete IBM VGA compatibility. Digital monitors
(i.e. MDA, CGA, and EGA) are NOT supported. Multiple frequency
(multisync) monitors are handled as if they were analog monitors.
Display memory
With on-board 2 MB display memory, the VGA controller can drive CRT
displays or color panel displays with resolutions up to 1024 x 768 at 64 K
colors. The display memory can be expanded to 4 MB for true-color
resolution of 1024 x 768.
Display types
CRT and panel displays can be used simultaneously. The PPC-120/140
can be set in one of three configurations: on a CRT, on a flat panel display,
or on both simultaneously. The system is initially set to simultaneous
display mode. The CD-ROM disc includes three *.COM files in the
subdirectory Utility\vga\ which can be used to configure the
display. In order to use these configuration programs, type the file name
and path at the DOS prompt.
CT.COM: Enables CRT display only
FP.COM: Enables panel display only
SM.COM: Enables both displays simultaneously

Award BIOS Setup
This chapter describes how to set BIOS
configuration data.
9.1 Award BIOS Setup
The PPC-120/140 comes with an Award BIOS chip that contains the
ROM setup for your system. This chip serves as an interface between the
processor and the rest of the mainboard's components. This chapter
explains the information contained in the setup program and tells you how
to modify the settings according to your system configuration. Some setup
items will not be explained, because it is recommended that users do not
change such items.
Note:
Values for the various setup items that appear on your
own screen (including default values) may not be the
same as the values shown on the screen figures in this
chapter. This is because the BIOS is revised and
updated from time to time. If in doubt, check
Advantech's web site for the latest BIOS versions and
related information.

CPU clock stops and the screen display is off. At this moment, if the IRQ
activity which is defined as enabled occurs, the system goes directly back
to Full-on Mode.
If the IRQ activity which is defined as "Disabled" occurs, the system
enters another low power state, Dream Mode. In Dream Mode, the system
will function the same as in Full-on Mode, except that the screen display
remains off until the corresponding IRQ handler finishes, whereupon the
system reverts to Suspend Mode.
For instance, if the system is connected to a LAN and receives an
interruption from its file server, the system will enter Dream Mode to
execute the corresponding calling routine.

PIO means Programmed Input/Output. Rather than having the BIOS issue
a series of commands to effect a transfer to or from the disk drive, PIO
allows the BIOS to tell the controller what it wants and then let the
controller and the CPU perform the task by themselves.

10.2.4 Installation for OS/2 (MonitorMouse)
BEFORE YOU BEGIN
First be sure OS/2 is installed and operating properly with your mouse. As
you will be modifying the CONFIG.SYS file, it is best to have the OS/2
installation disks or a bootable DOS disk readily available. This way, any
problems in CONFIG.SYS which cause the system not to boot can be
corrected by rebooting from the disk(s).
Five steps are required when installing MonitorMouse for OS/2:
Step 1 - Configure your Controller
Step 2 - Copy the Software
Step 3 - Modify CONFIG.SYS
Step 4 - Install the Touchscreen Control Panel
Step 5 - Calibrate the Touchscreen
STEP 1 - CONFIGURE YOUR CONTROLLER
Verify your controller configuration. Elo typically ships touchscreen
controllers preconfigured for use with Elo software, including
MonitorMouse for OS/2. Configuration requires setting switches and/or
installing jumpers that determine controller operating parameters. You will
need these parameters when you install the MonitorMouse for OS/2 driver
software. For controller installation instructions, refer to the IntelliTouch
Product Manual or the AccuTouch Product Manual.
134
PPC-120/140

STEP 2 - COPY THE SOFTWARE
The following files are on the MonitorMouse for OS/2 disk:
!READ.ME!
Text file containing any additions or changes made
after this manual was printed.
MONMOU01.SYS Touchscreen driver for serial touchscreen controllers
on PC bus systems.
MONMOU02.SYS Touchscreen driver for serial touchscreen controllers

International versions of the touchscreen control panel software program
are included in subdirectories on the MonitorMouse for OS/2 disk. Replace
ELOCAL2.DLL and ELOCAL2.HLP on your hard disk with the versions
from the appropriate subdirectory.
Chapter 10
Touchscreen
135
STEP 3 - MODIFY CONFIG.SYS
MonitorMouse for OS/2 is installed by commands in CONFIG.SYS. Use
your system editor to make these changes. In general, the changes are as
follows:
1. Comment-out the existing DEVICE command(s) for your mouse.
2. Add a DEVICE command for the appropriate MonitorMouse for the
OS/2 touchscreen driver immediately after the commented-out
DEVICE commands(s).
3. Add a new DEVICE command for MOUSE.SYS.
The order of the DEVICE commands is important. Other changes may be
required depending on your hardware configuration and version of OS/2.
Serial Touchscreen Controller on PC Bus System
Change your CONFIG.SYS file as follows:
Rem C:/OS2\MOUSE.SYS {Flags}
Device=c:\elo\monmou01.sys <controller>, <COM
port>,<baud rate>
Device=c:\os2\mouse.sys stype=elomou$ {Flags keep same as above}
Where:
<controller> is:
2300 for the IntelliTouch E281-2300 serial controller.
4002 for the IntelliTouch E281{A}-4002 serial controller.
2210 for the AccuTouch E271-2210 serial controller.
140 for the AccuTouch E271-140 serial controller.
<COM port> is:
the number of the COM port where the serial output of the touchscreen
controller is connected.
<baud rate>
matches the switch or jumper settings on the controller.
136
PPC-120/140
User's Manual
Example MonitorMouse for OS/2 DEVICE command:
Device=c:\elo\monmou01.sys 2210,1,9600
No Mouse
If you do not wish to have a mouse connected, change the
“stype=elomou$” flag to “type=elomou$” on the DEVICE=MOUSE.SYS
command.
Disabling the COM Drivers
If your system COM ports are being used by the touchscreen and mouse,
REM out the DEVICE=COM.SYS and DEVICE=VCOM.SYS commands
(if present) in CONFIG.SYS. This prevents the COM drivers from
displaying amessage saying the COM port is unavailable.
If only the touchscreen is using a COM port, move the
DEVICE=COM.SYS and DEVICE=VCOM.SYS commands before the
DEVICE=MONMOU02.SYS command in CONFIG.SYS. Then add the
flag (<COM Port>,0,0) to COM.SYS, where <COM Port> is the same as
on the DEVICE=MONMOU01.SYS command. For example,
Device=c:\os2\com.sys (1,0,0)
Chapter 10
Touchscreen
137
STEP 4 - INSTALL THE TOUCHSCREEN CONTROL PANEL
The touchscreen control panel software program, ELOCAL2.EXE, is a
presentation manager application for calibrating the touchscreen and
setting various options.
Add the \ELO\ELOCAL2.EXE program to the System Setup folder and
label the icon “Touchscreen”. This is accomplished as follows:
1. Open the OS/2 System folder, then System Setup.
2. Open the Templates folder.
3. Drag the Program template with the right mouse button into the
System Setup folder. A Settings notebook will be displayed.
4. Enter “C:\ELO\ELOCAL2.EXE” as the path and file name. Enter
“C:\ELO” as the working directory.
5. Select the "General" tab. Change the Title to “Touchscreen”.
6. Close the notebook.
See your OS/2 documentation for detailed instructions on installing new
applications.
STEP 5 - CALIBRATE THE TOUCHSCREEN
Double-click the Touchscreen icon with the mouse (as the touchscreen
may not be calibrated yet), or use the keyboard if the mouse is not
connected. You may also run ELOCAL2.EXE from an OS/2 Window
prompt.
Select "Calibrate" and follow the on-screen instructions. After calibrating,
the touchscreen will work like the mouse. The DEVICE=MONMOUxx
command in CONFIG.SYS is updated with the new calibration points
(-c flag). The calibration points are then set automatically each time the
system is started. Recalibration should only be necessary after moving or
resizing the video image, or after changing either the touchscreen,
controller, or monitor.
Close the touchscreen control panel.

The color LCD display installed in the panel PC is
high-quality and reliable. However, it may contain a few
defective pixels which may not always illuminate. With
current technology, it is impossible to completely
eliminate defective pixels. Advantech is actively working
to improve this technology.

Programming the
Watchdog Timer
The PPC-120/140 is equipped with a
watchdog timer that resets the CPU or
generates an interrupt if processing comes
to a standstill for any reason. This feature
ensures system reliability in industrial
standalone or unmanned environments.
Programming the Watchdog Timer
To program the watchdog timer, you must write a program which writes
I/O port address 443 (hex). The output data is a time interval value. The
value range is from 01 (hex) to 3F (hex), and the related time interval is
from 1 sec. to 63 sec.

•
•
•

After data entry, your program must refresh the watchdog timer by
rewriting the I/O port 443 (hex) while simultaneously setting it. When you
want to disable the watchdog timer, your program should read I/O port
443 (hex).
