UltraPerformance: Onboard IDE Bus Master controller with two connectors that
support four IDE devices in two channels. Supports UltraDMA/66, UltraDMA/33
(IDE DMA Mode 2), PIO Modes 3 & 4, and supports Enhanced IDE devices, such
as DVD-ROM, CD-ROM, CD-R/RW, LS-120, and Tape Backup drives.
Dual Speeds: CPU frequency can operate at either 133MHz or 100MHz.
High-Speed Data Transfer Interface: IDE transfers using UltraDMA/33 Bus
Master IDE can handle rates up to 33MB/s. This motherboard with its chipset
and support for UltraDMA/66 doubles the UltraDMA/33 burst transfer rate to
66.6MB/s. UltraDMA/66 is backward compatible with both DMA/33 and DMA
and with existing DMA devices and systems so there is no need to upgrade
current EIDE/IDE drives and host systems. (UltraDMA/66 requires a 40-pin
80-conductor cable to be enabled and/or for UltraDMA Mode 4.)
Concurrent PCI: Concurrent PCI allows multiple PCI transfers from PCI master buses to memory and processor.
SDRAM Optimized Performance: This motherboard supports PC100-compliant Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory (SDRAM), which increases
the data transfer rate to 800MB/s max
ACPI Ready: ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) is also implemented on all ASUS smart series motherboards. ACPI provides more Energy
Saving Features for future operating systems (OS) supporting OS Direct Power
Management (OSPM) functionality. With these features implemented in the OS,
PCs can be ready around the clock, yet satisfy all the energy saving standards.
To fully utilize the benefits of ACPI, an ACPI-supported OS, such as Windows
98/2000/Millenium, must be used.
Suspend and Go: Suspend-to-RAM (STR) provides maximum power savings
as an alternative to leaving the computer ON and QuickStart™ so that you do
not have to wait for a long time for system bootup.
New Compliancy: Both the BIOS and hardware levels of the motherboard meet
the stringent requirements for PC 99 certification. The new PC 99 requirements
for systems and components are based on the following high-level goals: support for Plug and Play compatibility and power management for configuring
and managing all system components, and 32-bit device drivers and installation
procedures for Windows 95/NT and later. Color-coded connectors and descriptive icons make identification easy as required by PC 99.

Fan Status Monitoring and Alarm: To prevent system overheat and system
damage, the CPU, power supply, and system fans can be monitored for RPM
and failure. All the fans are set for its normal RPM range and alarm thresholds.
Temperature Monitoring and Alert: To prevent system overheat and system damage, this motherboard supports processor thermal sensing and auto-protection.
Voltage Monitoring and Alert: System voltage levels are monitored to ensure
stable current to critical motherboard components. Voltage specifications are
more critical for future processors, so monitoring is necessary to ensure proper
system configuration and management.
System Resources Alert: Today’s operating systems, such as Windows 98/
Millenium, Windows NT/2000, and OS/2, require much more memory and hard
drive space to present enormous user interfaces and run large applications. The
onboard hardware ASUS ASIC in conjunction with either the bundled ASUS
PC Probe or Intel LDCM will warn the user before the system resources are
used up to prevent possible application crashes. Suggestions will give the user
information on managing their limited resources more efficiently.
Dual Function Power Button: Through BIOS, the power button can be defined
as the “Stand by” (a.k.a. Suspend or Sleep) button or as the Soft-Off (see ATX
Power / Soft-Off Switch Lead in 3.8 Connectors for more information) button.
Regardless of the setting, pushing the power button for more than 4 seconds will
enter the Soft-Off mode.
Remote Ring On (requires modem): This allows a computer to be turned on
remotely through an internal or external modem. With this benefit on-hand, users
can access any information from their computers from anywhere in the world.
Message LED (requires ACPI OS support): Message LEDs now act as information providers. Through the way a particular LED illuminates, the user can
determine if a message has been received from a fax/modem. A simple glimpse
provides useful information to the user. This function requires ACPI OS and
driver support.
Peripheral Power Up: Keyboard or Mouse power up can be enabled or disabled through BIOS setup to allow the computer to be powered ON using your
keyboard or mouse click.

Motherboard Settings
WARNING! Computer motherboards and expansion cards contain very delicate
Integrated Circuit (IC) chips. To protect them against damage from static electricity, you should follow some precautions whenever you work on your computer.
1. Unplug your computer when working on the inside.
2. Use a grounded wrist strap before handling computer components. If you do
not have one, touch both of your hands to a safely grounded object or to a metal
object, such as the power supply case.
3. Hold components by the edges and try not to touch the IC chips, leads or connectors, or other components.
4. Place components on a grounded antistatic pad or on the bag that came with the
component whenever the components are separated from the system.
5. Ensure that the ATX power supply is switched off before you plug in or
remove the ATX power connector on the motherboard.
WARNING! Make sure that you unplug your power supply when adding or
removing system components. Failure to do so may cause severe damage to
your motherboard, peripherals, and/or components. The onboard LED when
lit acts as a reminder that the system is in suspend or soft-off mode and not
powered OFF.

These jumpers allow you to disable or enable the USB device power up function
for USB devices connected to your system. These two jumpers must be set in
unison; that is, either both must be set to Disable or both must be set to Enable.
This feature requires an ATX power supply that can supply at least 2A on the
+5VSB lead. The default is set to Disable because not all computers have the
appropriate ATX power supply. Your computer will not power ON if you set
these to Enable and do not have the appropriate ATX power supply. NOTE:
These jumpers must be set in conjunction with Wake On USB Device in 4.5.1

3.5 System Memory (DIMM)
NOTE: No hardware or BIOS setup is required after adding or removing memory.
This motherboard uses only Dual Inline Memory Modules (DIMMs). Sockets are
available for 3.3Volt (power level) unbuffered Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory (SDRAM) of 64, 128, 256, or 512MB with Serial Presence Detect (SPD).
This chipset does not support ECC. However, ECC memory modules may still be
used, but the ECC function will not be available.
Memory speed setup is recommended through SDRAM Configuration in 4.4.1
Chip Configuration.
WARNING! Installing memory incorrectly may burn your memory modules. Make
sure that you follow the memory installation configurations on the next page.
3. H/W SETUP
System Memory
IMPORTANT:
1. This motherboard’s chipset only supports 64Mbit and 128Mbit SDRAMs
(see SDRAM Configurations).
32Mx4 128 Mbit support is for registered DIMMs only.
4Mx16 64 Mbit support is for unbufferred DIMMs only.
2. If more than one socket will be populated with DIMMs, the socket closer to
the processor must be populated with a higher-sized DIMM (in MB). For
example, DIMM0 DIMM2 DIMM1 DIMM3. Total memory size (in
MB), however, of DIMM1 and DIMM3 must not be greater than DIMM0
and DIMM2 (DIMM0 + DIMM2 DIMM1 + DIMM3).

ASUS CUC2000-M User’s Manual
3. HARDWARE SETUP
3.6 Central Processing Unit (CPU)
The motherboard provides a ZIF Socket 370. The CPU that came with the motherboard should have a fan attached to it to prevent overheating. If this is not the case,
then purchase a fan before you turn on your system.
WARNING! Be sure that there is sufficient air circulation across the processor’s
heatsink by regularly checking that your CPU fan is working. Without sufficient
circulation, the processor could overheat and damage both the processor and the
motherboard. You may install an auxiliary fan, if necessary.
3. H/W SETUP
CPU
To install a CPU, first turn off your system and remove its cover. Locate the ZIF
socket and open it by first pulling the lever sideways away from the socket then
upwards to a 90-degree angle. Insert the CPU with the correct orientation as shown.
The notched corner should point towards the end of the lever. Because the CPU has
a corner pin for two of the four corners, the CPU will only fit in the orientation as
shown. The picture is for reference only; you should have a CPU fan that covers the
face of the CPU. With the added weight of the CPU fan, no force is required to
insert the CPU. Once completely inserted, close the socket’s lever while holding
down the CPU. Next, install an Intel recommended fan heatsink. Locate the CPU
fan connector (see 3.1 Motherboard Layout or 3.8 Connectors) and connect the
CPU fan cable to it.
NOTE: Do not forget to set the correct Bus Frequency and Multiple (frequency
multiple setting is available only on unlocked processors) for your Socket 370 processor or else boot-up may not be possible. Socket 370 processors provide internal
thermal sensing so that a socket mounted thermal resistor is not needed.
CAUTION! Be careful not to scrape the motherboard when mounting a clampstyle processor fan or else damage may occur to the motherboard.

Expansion Cards
1. Read the documentation for your expansion card and make any necessary hardware or software settings for your expansion card, such as jumpers.
2. Remove your computer system’s cover and the bracket plate on the slot you
intend to use. Keep the bracket for possible future use.
3. Carefully align the card’s connectors and press firmly.
4. Secure the card on the slot with the screw you removed above.
5. Replace the computer system’s cover.
6. Set up the BIOS if necessary
(such as IRQ xx Used By ISA: Yes in 4.4.3 PCI Configuration)
7. Install the necessary software drivers for your expansion card.
28
ASUS CUC2000-M User’s Manual
3. HARDWARE SETUP
3.7.2 Assigning IRQs for Expansion Cards
Some expansion cards need an IRQ to operate. Generally, an IRQ must be exclusively assigned to one use. In a standard design, there are 16 IRQs available but
most of them are already in use, leaving 6 IRQs free for expansion cards. If your
motherboard has PCI audio onboard, an additional IRQ will be used. If your motherboard also has MIDI enabled, another IRQ will be used, leaving 4 IRQs free.
IMPORTANT: If using PCI cards on shared slots, make sure that the drivers support “Share IRQ” or that the cards do not need IRQ assignments. Conflicts will arise
between the two PCI groups that will make the system unstable or cards inoperable.
The following table lists the default IRQ assignments for standard PC devices. Use

3.7.4 Audio Modem Riser (AMR) Slot
3. H/W SETUP
Expansion Cards
This connector supports a specially designed audio and/or modem card called an AMR.
Main processing is done through software and controlled by the motherboard’s system chipset. This provides an upgradeable audio and/or modem solution at an incredibly low cost. There are two types of AMR, one defined as primary and another defined as secondary. This motherboard uses the primary channel so that a secondary
AMR can coexist without the need to disable the onboard CODEC. The motherboard’s
onboard CODEC (optional) must be disabled when using a primary AMR.
NOTE: An AMR is not included with this motherboard.

These connectors support the provided UltraDMA/66 IDE hard disk ribbon cable.
Connect the cable’s blue connector to the motherboard’s primary (recommended)
or secondary IDE connector, and then connect the gray connector to your
UltraDMA/66 slave device (hard disk drive) and the black connector to your
UltraDMA/66 master device. It is recommended that non-UltraDMA/66 devices
be connected to the secondary IDE connector. If you install two hard disks, you
must configure the second drive to Slave mode by setting its jumper accordingly. Refer to your hard disk documentation for the jumper settings. BIOS now
supports specific device bootup (see Boot Sequence in 4.6 Boot Menu). (Pin
20 is removed to prevent inserting in the wrong orientation when using
ribbon cables with pin 20 plugged). If you have more than two UltraDMA/66
devices, you will need to purchase another UltraDMA/66 cable.
NOTE: The hole near the blue connector on the UltraDMA/66 cable is intentional.
TIP: You may configure two hard disks to be both Masters with two ribbon
cables – one for the primary IDE connector and another for the secondary IDE
connector. You may install one operating system on an IDE drive and another on
a SCSI drive and select the boot disk through Boot Sequence in 4.6 Boot Menu.

4.1 Managing and Updating Your BIOS
4.1.1 Upon First Use of the Computer System
It is recommended that you save a copy of the original motherboard BIOS along
with a Flash Memory Writer utility (AFLASH.EXE) to a bootable floppy disk in
case you need to reinstall the BIOS later. AFLASH.EXE is a Flash Memory Writer
utility that updates the BIOS by uploading a new BIOS file to the programmable
flash ROM on the motherboard. This file works only in DOS mode. To determine
the BIOS version of your motherboard, check the last four numbers of the code
displayed on the upper left-hand corner of your screen during bootup. Larger numbers represent a newer BIOS file.
4. BIOS SETUP
Updating BIOS
1. Type FORMAT A:/S at the DOS prompt to create a bootable system floppy
disk. DO NOT copy AUTOEXEC.BAT & CONFIG.SYS to the disk.
2. Type COPY E:\AFLASH\AFLASH.EXE A:\ (assuming E is your CD-ROM
drive) to copy AFLASH.EXE to the just created boot disk.
NOTE: AFLASH works only in DOS mode. It will not work with DOS prompt in
Windows and will not work with certain memory drivers that may be loaded when
you boot from your hard drive. It is recommended that you reboot using a floppy.
3. Reboot your computer from the floppy disk. NOTE: BIOS setup must specify
“Floppy” as the first item in the boot sequence.
4. In DOS mode, type A:\AFLASH <Enter> to run AFLASH.
IMPORTANT! If “unknown” is displayed after Flash Memory:, the memory
chip is either not programmable or is not supported by the ACPI BIOS and therefore, cannot be programmed by the Flash Memory Writer utility.

4.2 BIOS Setup Program
This motherboard supports a programmable EEPROM that can be updated using the
provided utility as described in 4.1 Managing and Updating Your BIOS.
The utility is used if you are installing a motherboard, reconfiguring your system, or
prompted to “Run Setup”. This section describes how to configure your system
using this utility.
Even if you are not prompted to use the Setup program, at some time in the future
you may want to change the configuration of your computer. For example, you may
want to enable the Security Password Feature or make changes to the power management settings. It will then be necessary to reconfigure your system using the
BIOS Setup program so that the computer can recognize these changes and record
them in the CMOS RAM of the EEPROM.
4. BIOS SETUP
Program Information
The EEPROM on the motherboard stores the Setup utility. When you start up the
computer, the system provides you with the opportunity to run this program. This
appears during the Power-On Self Test (POST). Press <Delete> to call up the Setup
utility. If you are a little bit late in pressing the mentioned key, POST will continue
with its test routines, thus preventing you from calling up Setup. If you still need to
call Setup, restart the system by pressing <Ctrl> + <Alt> + <Delete>, or by pressing
the Reset button on the system chassis. You can also restart by turning the system off
and then back on again. But do so only if the first two methods fail.
The Setup program has been designed to make it as easy to use as possible. It is a
menu-driven program, which means you can scroll through the various sub-menus
and make your selections among the predetermined choices.
To access the BIOS Setup program, press the <Delete> key after
the computer has run through its POST.

7. APPENDIX
ASUS CIDB Module
The optional ASUS CIDB is a module for providing audible intrusion alarm and
logging for ASUS motherboards equipped with the chassis connector. The module
detects a chassis intrusion by either light striking its photo sensor or by the closing
or opening of a chassis-mounted momentary toggle switch. An intrusion memory
function allows detection and clearing the intrusion notification by the BIOS program on the next bootup.

7.2.1 Using the ASUS CIDB
1. You must have an ASUS motherboard with: (1) a chassis connector and (2) a
System Management Bus (SMB) connector.
2. Connect the CIDB directly to the chassis connector or use the provided extension cable and mount the CIDB to the chassis using a double-sided foam adhesive tape or with screws and spacer posts.
CAUTION! The CIDB’s component pins and metallic points must not come in
contact with another metallic surface or else shorting will occur!
3. Use the SMBIN connector and the provided SMB cable to connect the CIDB to
the SMB connector on the motherboard. If another SMB device is already used
on the motherboard, you may unplug it and connect it to the SMBOUT connector on the CIDB.
4. Check the hardware settings:
• PHOTO jumper should be enabled to use the photo sensor.
• MS1 and/or MS2 connectors should be connected to momentary toggle
switches mounted on the chassis to use the switch close or switch open
method for triggering an intrusion event.
ASUS CUC2000-M User’s Manual

7. APPENDIX
5. To stop the alarm from sounding, use the BIOS setup or momentarily place a
jumper on (or short manually) the CLR jumper. Note that the jumper must be
removed for the CIDB to work normally again.
6. If you have an updated BIOS with intrusion support, booting the computer after
an intrusion may require a password if configured through BIOS.

1. If there is no power to the motherboard (i.e. removing the power cord or turning
the power supply’s switch off), the alarm will not sound but the CIDB will still
memorize an intrusion event which BIOS will detect on the next bootup.
2. Any chassis intrusion detection components on the motherboard will not work if
the CIDB is used.
3. The P2B-LS motherboard must use an external battery pack on the EXTBATT
connector or else neither the alarm or intrusion memory functions will work.

1394
1394 is the IEEE designation for the high performance serial bus at 12.5, 25 or
50MBytes/sec speeds. This serial bus defines both a back plane physical layer and a
point-to-point cable-connected virtual bus. The primary application of the cable version is the integration of I/O connectivity at the back panel of personal computers
using a low-cost, scalable, high-speed serial interface. The 1394 standard also provides new services such as live connect/disconnect capability for external devices
including disk drives, printers and hand-held peripherals such as scanners and cameras. This is a new standard to complement the slower USB interface and to compete
with the more expensive SCSI interface.
AC97 (Audio Codec '97)
AC '97 is the next step in enabling PCs with audio quality comparable to consumer
electronics devices. The specification defines new cost-effective options to help integrate the components necessary to support next-generation auto-intensive PC applications such as DVD, 3-D multiplayer gaming and interactive music. The specification also defines new extensions supporting modem and docking to help both
desktop and mobile manufacturers adopt these new technologies more quickly and
cost-effectively. This specification uses software emulation to compete with the PCI
SoundBlaster specification.
ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface)
The ACPI specification defines a cross-platform interface designed to support many
operating systems. ACPI defines a flexible and abstract hardware interface that provides a standard way to integrate power management features throughout a PC system, including hardware, operating system and application software. This enables
the system to automatically turn ON and OFF peripherals such as CD-ROMs, network cards, hard disk drives, and printers, as well as consumer devices connected to
the PC such as VCRs, TVs, phones, and stereos. With this technology, peripherals
will also be able to activate the PC. For example, inserting a tape into a VCR can
turn on the PC, which could then activate a large-screen TV and high-fidelity sound
system.
AGP (Accelerated Graphics Port)
An interface specification that enables high-performance 3D graphics on mainstream
PCs. AGP was designed to offer the necessary bandwidth and latency to perform
texture mapping directly from system memory.

BIOS (Basic Input/Output System)
BIOS is a set of routines that affect how the computer transfers data between computer components, such as memory, disks, and the display adapter. The BIOS instructions are built into the computer’s read-only memory. BIOS parameters can be
configured by the user through the BIOS Setup program. The BIOS can be updated
using the provided utility to copy a new BIOS file into the EEPROM.
Bit (Binary Digit)
Represents the smallest unit of data used by the computer. A bit can have one of two
values: 0 or 1.

Glossary
Boot
Boot means to start the computer operating system by loading it into system memory.
When the manual instructs you to “boot” your system (or computer), it means to
turn ON your computer. “Reboot” means to restart your computer. When using Windows 95 or later, selecting “Restart” from “Start | Shut Down...” will reboot your
computer.
Bus Master IDE
PIO (Programmable I/O) IDE requires that the CPU be involved in IDE access and
waiting for mechanical events. Bus master IDE transfers data to/from the memory
without interrupting the CPU. Bus master IDE driver and bus master IDE hard disk
drives are required to support bus master IDE mode.
Byte (Binary Term)
One byte is a group of eight contiguous bits. A byte is used to represent a single
alphanumeric character, punctuation mark, or other symbol.
COM Port
COM is a logical device name used by to designate the computer serial ports. Pointing devices, modems, and infrared modules can be connected to COM ports. Each
COM port is configured to use a different IRQ and address assignment.
Concurrent PCI
Concurrent PCI maximizes system performance with simultaneous CPU, PCI and
ISA bus activities. It includes multi-transaction timing, enhanced write performance,
a passive release mechanism and support for PCI 2.1 compliant delayed transactions. Concurrent PCI provides increased bandwidth, reduced system latencies, improves video and audio performance, and improves processing of host based applications.
CPU (Central Processing Unit)
The CPU, sometimes called “Processor,” actually functions as the “brain” of the
computer. It interprets and executes program commands and processes data stored
in memory. Currently, there are socket 370 (for Pentium III FC-PGA and CeleronPPGA), socket 7 (for Pentium, AMD, Cyrix, IBM), slot 1 (for Pentium II and III),
slot 2 (for Xeon), and slot A (for AMD) processors.
Device Driver
A device driver is a special set of instructions that allows the computer’s operating
system to communicate with devices such as VGA, audio, printer, or modem.
DOS (Disk Operating System)
DOS is the foundation on which all other programs and software applications operate, including Windows. DOS is responsible for allocating system resources such as
memory, CPU time, disk space, and access to peripheral devices. For this reason,
DOS constitutes the basic interface between you and your computer.
DRAM (Dynamic Random Access Memory)
There are several different types of DRAM such as, EDO DRAM (Extended Data
Output DRAM), SDRAM (Synchronous DRAM), and RDRAM (Rambus DRAM).
Flash ROM
The flash ROM is designed to be a resident program and can be updated by a specific programming method. Normally, the flash ROM is used for system BIOS which
initiates hardware devices and sets up necessary parameters for the OS. Since the
contents of flash ROM can be modified, users are able to update the BIOS by themselves.
IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics)
IDE devices integrate the drive control circuitry directly on the drive itself, eliminating the need for a separate adapter card (in the case for SCSI devices). UltraDMA/
33 IDE devices can achieve up to 33MB/Sec transfer.

LPT Port (Line Printer Port)
Logical device name reserved by DOS for the computer parallel ports. Each LPT
port is configured to use a different IRQ and address assignment.
MMX
A set of 57 new instructions based on a technique called Single Instruction, Multiple
Data (SIMD), which is built into the new Intel Pentium PP/MT (P55C) and Pentium
II (Klamath) CPU as well as other x86-compatible microprocessors. The MMX instructions are designed to accelerate multimedia and communications applications,
such as 3D video, 3D sound, video conference.
OnNow
The OnNow design initiative is a comprehensive, system-wide approach to system
and device power control. OnNow is a term for PC that is always ON but appears
OFF and responds immediately to user or other requests. The OnNow design initiative involves changes that will occur in the Microsoft Windows operating system,
device drivers, hardware, and applications, and also relies on the changes defined in
the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) specification.
PC100
SDRAM is Intel's goal is to ensure that memory subsystems continue to support
evolving platform requirements and to assure that memory does not become a bottleneck to system performance. It is especially important to ensure that the PC memory
roadmap evolves together with the performance roadmaps for the processors, I/O
and graphics.
PCI Bus (Peripheral Component Interconnect Local Bus)
PCI bus is a specification that defines a 32-bit data bus interface. PCI is a standard
widely used by expansion card manufacturers.
PCI Bus Master
The PCI Bus Master can perform data transfer without local CPU help and furthermore, the CPU can be treated as one of the Bus Masters. PCI 2.1 supports concurrent PCI operation to allow the local CPU and bus master to work simultaneously.
Plug and Play BIOS
The ISA bus architecture requires the allocation of memory and I/O address, DMA
channels and interrupt levels among multiple ISA cards. However, configuration of
ISA cards is typically done with jumpers that change the decode maps for memory
and I/O space and steer the DMA and interrupt signals to different pins on the bus.
Further, system configuration files may need to be updated to reflect these changes.
Users typically resolve sharing conflicts by referring to documentation provided by
each manufacturer. For the average user, this configuration process can be unreliable and frustrating. Plug and play (PnP) BIOS eliminates the ISA add-on card hardware conflict problem. The PnP BIOS uses a memory block to define and remember
each card's configuration, which allows the user to change the card's IRQs and DMA
in BIOS either automatically or manually.
POST (Power On Self Test)
When you turn ON the computer, it will first run through the POST, a series of
software-controlled diagnostic tests. The POST checks system memory, the motherboard circuitry, the display, the keyboard, the diskette drive, and other I/O devices.
PS/2 Port
PS/2 ports are based on IBM Micro Channel Architecture. This type of architecture
transfers data through a 16-bit or 32-bit bus. A PS/2 mouse and/or keyboard may be
used on ATX motherboards.
RDRAM (Rambus DRAM)
Developed by Rambus, Inc., this type of memory can deliver up to 1.6GB of data
per second. RDRAM is the first interface standard that can be directly implemented
on high performance VLSI components such as, CMOS DRAMs, memory controllers, and graphics/video ICs.

Glossary
ROM (Read Only Memory)
ROM is nonvolatile memory used to store permanent programs (called firmware)
used in certain computer components. Flash ROM (or EEPROM) can be reprogrammed with new programs (or BIOS).
SCSI (Small Computer System Interface)
High speed multi-threaded I/O interface defined by the X3T9.2 committee of the
American National Standards Institute (ANSI) for connecting many peripheral devices. The standard started from 10MBytes/sec to 160MBytes/sec available today.
SDRAM (Synchronous DRAM)
The SDRAM features a fully synchronous operation referenced to a positive edge
clock whereby all operations are synchronized at a clock input which enables the
coexistence of high performance and a simple user interface. SDRAM takes memory
access away from the CPU's control; internal registers in the chips accept the request, and let the CPU do something else while the data requested is assembled for
the next time the CPU talks to the memory. As they work on their own clock cycle,
the rest of the system can be clocked faster. There is a version optimized for video
cards, and main memory for motherboards.
SPD for SDRAM module
Serial Presence Detect (SPD) is most like an ID detect for SDRAM module, it using
a EEPROM component on DIMM module for storing module configuration information inside. The Serial Presence Detect function is implemented using a 2048 bit
EEPROM component. This nonvolatile storage device contains data programmed
by the DIMM manufacturer that identifies the module type and various SDRAM
organization and timing parameters.
SSE (Streaming SIMD Extensions)
A set of new instructions added to existing architectures that enables a better visual
experience with an accelerated 3D geometry pipeline and support for new applications, such as real-time video encoding and speech recognition.
System Disk
A system disk contains the core file of an operating system and is used to boot up the
operating system.
UltraDMA
Ultra DMA/33 is a "synchronous DMA" protocol designed by Intel. This function is
included into Intel's PIIX4 chipset. The traditional IDE transfer only uses one edge
of the data stroke as the data transfer. Ultra DMA/33 uses both edges of data strobe
when the data is transferred. Hence, the data transfer rate is double of the PIO mode
4 or DMA mode 2 (16.6MB/s x2 = 33MB/s) on ATA-2 devices.
Ultra ATA/66, also known as Ultra DMA/66, is an extension of current Ultra ATA/
33 interface. This new high-speed interface has doubled the Ultra ATA/33 burst data
transfer rate to 66.6 Mbytes/sec and maximized disk performance under current PCI
local bus environment
USB (Universal Serial Bus)
A 4-pin serial cable bus that allows up to 127 plug and play computer peripherals
such as keyboard, mouse, joystick, scanner, printer, modem, and monitor to share a
bandwidth through a host scheduled token based protocol. This allows attaching or
detaching while the host and other peripherals are in operation. Supports synchronous and asynchronous transfer types over the same set of wires up to 12Mbit/sec.
USB 2.0 provides twice the transfer rate compared to USB 1.0 and competes with
the 1394 standard.
Wake-On-LAN
Computer will automatically wake-up upon receiving a wake-up packet through a
Network interface when it is under power soft-off, suspend or sleep mode.
