Product Warranty (2 years)
Advantech warrants to you, the original purchaser, that each of its products will be
free from defects in materials and workmanship for two years from the date of purchase.
This warranty does not apply to any products which have been repaired or altered by
persons other than repair personnel authorized by Advantech, or which have been
subject to misuse, abuse, accident or improper installation. Advantech assumes no
liability under the terms of this warranty as a consequence of such events.
Because of Advantech’s high quality-control standards and rigorous testing, most of
our customers never need to use our repair service. If an Advantech product is defective, it will be repaired or replaced at no charge during the warranty period. For outof-warranty repairs, you will be billed according to the cost of replacement materials,
service time and freight. Please consult your dealer for more details.
If you think you have a defective product, follow these steps:
1. Collect all the information about the problem encountered. (For example, CPU
speed, Advantech products used, other hardware and software used, etc.) Note
anything abnormal and list any onscreen messages you get when the problem
occurs.
2. Call your dealer and describe the problem. Please have your manual, product,
and any helpful information readily available.
3. If your product is diagnosed as defective, obtain an RMA (return merchandise
authorization) number from your dealer. This allows us to process your return
more quickly.
4. Carefully pack the defective product, a fully-completed Repair and Replacement
Order Card and a photocopy proof of purchase date (such as your sales receipt)
in a shippable container. A product returned without proof of the purchase date
is not eligible for warranty service.
5. Write the RMA number visibly on the outside of the package and ship it prepaid
to your dealer.

1.7 Safety Precautions
Warning! Always completely disconnect the power cord from chassis whenever
you work with the hardware. Do not make connections while the power
is on. Sensitive electronic components can be damaged by sudden
power surges. Only experienced electronics personnel should open the
PC chassis.
Caution! Always ground yourself to remove any static charge before touching the
motherboard. Modern electronic devices are very sensitive to electrostatic discharges. As a safety precaution, use a grounding wrist strap at
all times. Place all electronic components on a static-dissipative surface
or in a static-shielded bag when they are not in the chassis.
Caution! The computer is provided with a battery-powered real-time clock circuit.
There is a danger of explosion if battery is incorrectly replaced. Replace
only with same or equivalent type recommended by the manufacturer.
Discard used batteries according to manufacturer's instructions.
Caution! There is a danger of a new battery exploding if it is incorrectly installed.
Do not attempt to recharge, force open, or heat the battery. Replace the
battery only with the same or equivalent type recommended by the manufacturer. Discard used batteries according to the manufacturer’s
instructions.

This section provides instructions on how to configure your motherboard by setting
the jumpers. It also includes the motherboards's default settings and your options for
each jumper.
1.8.1 How to Set Jumpers
1.8.2 CMOS Clear (CMOS1)
The AIMB-212 motherboard contains a jumper that can erase CMOS data and reset
the system BIOS information. Normally this jumper should be set with pins 1-2
closed. If you want to reset the CMOS data, set J1 to 2-3 closed for just a few seconds, and then move the jumper back to 1-2 closed. This procedure will reset the
CMOS to its default setting.

General Information
You can configure your motherboard to match the needs of your application by setting the jumpers. A jumper is a metal bridge that closes an electrical circuit. 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” (or turn ON) a jumper, you connect the pins
with the clip. To “open” (or turn OFF) a jumper, you remove the clip. Sometimes a
jumper consists of a set of three pins, labeled 1, 2, and 3. In this case you connect
either pins 1 and 2, or 2 and 3. A pair of needle-nose pliers may be useful when setting jumpers.

1.9 System Memory
The AIMB-212 has one socket for a 200-pin SODIMMx1.
This socket uses a 1.8 V unbuffered double data rate synchronous DRAM (DDR
SDRAM). DRAM is available in capacities of 512 MB, 1 GB and 2 GB. The socket
can be filled in any combination with DIMMs of any size, giving a total memory size
between 512 MB and 2 GB. AIMB-212 does NOT support ECC (error checking and
correction).
1.10 Memory Installation Procedures
To install SODIMMs, first make sure the two handles of the SODIMM socket are in
the “open” position, i.e., the handles lean outward. Slowly slide the SODIMM module
along the plastic guides on both ends of the socket. Then press the SODIMM module
well down into the socket, until you hear a click when the two handles have automatically locked the memory module into the correct position of the SODIMM socket. To
remove the memory module, just push both handles outward, and the memory module will be ejected by the mechanism.

3.1 Introduction
AMI BIOS has been integrated into many motherboards, and has been very popular
for over a decade. People sometimes refer to the AMI BIOS setup menu as BIOS,
BIOS setup or CMOS setup.
With the AMI BIOS Setup program, you can modify BIOS settings and control the
special features of your computer. The Setup program uses a number of menus for
making changes and turning special features on or off. This chapter describes the
basic navigation of the AIMB-212 setup screens.
3.2 BIOS Setup
The AIMB-212 Series system has AMI BIOS built in, with a CMOS SETUP utility that
allows users to configure required settings or to activate certain system features.
The CMOS SETUP saves the configuration in the CMOS RAM of the motherboard.
When the power is turned off, the battery on the board supplies the necessary power
to preserve the CMOS RAM.
When the power is turned on, press the <Del> button during the BIOS POST (PowerOn Self Test) to access the CMOS SETUP screen.

Watchdog Timer
A.1 Programming the Watchdog Timer
The AIMB-212's watchdog timer can be used to monitor system software operation
and take corrective action if the software fails to function within the programmed
period. This section describes the operation of the watchdog timer and how to program it.
A.1.1 Watchdog Timer Overview
The watchdog timer is built into the super I/O controller W83627DHG-P. It provides
the following user-programmable functions:
! Can be enabled and disabled by user program
! Timer can be set from 1 to 255 seconds or 1 to 255 minutes
! Generates an interrupt or resets signal if the software fails to reset the timer
before time-out
A.1.2 Programming the Watchdog Timer
The I/O port address of the watchdog timer is 2E (hex) and 2F (hex). 2E (hex) is the
address port. 2F (hex) is the data port. You must first assign the address of register
by writing an address value into address port 2E (hex), then write/read data to/from
the assigned register through data port 2F (hex).
