Overview
ELECTROSTATIC DISCHARGE
Warning!
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage boards, disk drives, and other
components. The circuit board must be only be handled at an ESD workstation. If
an approved station is not available, some measure of protection can be provided
by wearing a grounded antistatic wrist strap. Keep all plastic away from the board,
and do not slide the board over any surface.
After removing the board from its protective wrapper, place the board on a
grounded, static-free surface, component side up. Use an anti-static foam pad if
available.
The board should also be protected during shipment or storage by keeping inside a
closed metallic anti-static envelope.
Note!
The exterior coating on some metallic anti-static bags is sufficiently conductive to
cause excessive battery drain if the bag comes in contact with the bottom side of
the VSBC-6.
LITHIUM BATTERY
Warning!
To prevent shorting, premature failure, or damage to the lithium battery, do not
place the board on a conductive surface such as metal, black conductive foam, or
the outside surface of a metalized ESD protective pouch. The lithium battery may
explode if mistreated. Do not recharge, disassemble, or dispose of in fire. Dispose
of used batteries promptly.
MOUNTING SUPPORT
Warning!
The single board computer must be supported at all eight mounting points to
prevent excessive flexing when expansion modules are mated and demated. Flex
damage caused by excessive force on an improperly mounted circuit board is not
covered under the product warranty.

Windows 95 Installation
Windows 95 Installation
Because of the industrial nature of the VSBC-6, a "Custom" installation of Windows 95 is
recommended. Addition of ethernet and video drivers are accomplished after the operating
system is fully installed.
Note!
If the "custom" option is not used, the installation program will hang at the 30%
and 35% points in the automatic hardware detection phase. The installation can be
completed this way, however, it requires more time since a system restart is
required after each of the two detection errors.

Dimensions and Mounting
HARDWARE ASSEMBLY
The VSBC mounts on four 4-40, 3/8" hardware standoffs using the corner mounting holes (A).
These standoffs are secured to the underside of the circuit board using 1/4" 4-40 pan head
screws.
Four additional 4-40, 3/8" standoffs (B) must be used under the circuit board to prevent
excessive flexing when expansion modules are mated and demated. These are secured with four
4-40, 5/8" male-female standoffs (C) threaded from the topside which also serve as mounting
struts for the PC/104 stack.
The entire assembly can sit on a table top or it can be secured to a base plate. When bolting the
unit down, make sure to secure all eight standoffs (A and B) to the mounting surface to prevent
circuit board flexing. Refer to the drawing on page 13 for dimensional details.
An extractor tool is available (part number VL-HDW-201) to separate the PC/104 modules from
the stack.
Note!
Standoffs and screws for (A and B) are available as part number VL-HDW-104.

POWER CONNECTORS
Main power is applied to the VSBC-6 through an EBX style 7-pin polarized connector (mating
connector Molex Housing 09-50-8073, Pins 08-52-0072). A 3-pin auxiliary power input
connector is also provided to supply –5V and –12V to the PC/104-Plus stack.
See page 17 for connector pinout and location information.
Warning!
To prevent severe and possibly irreparable damage to the system, it is critical that
the power connectors be wired correctly. Make sure to use both +5VDC pins and
all three ground pins to prevent excess voltage drop.

POWER REQUIREMENTS
The VSBC-6 requires only +5 volts (±5%) for proper operation. The voltage required for the RS232 ports and analog input sections are generated with a DC/DC converter. A variable lowvoltage supply circuit provides power to the CPU and other on-board devices.
The exact power requirement of the VSBC-6 depends on several factors, including memory
configuration, CPU speed, peripheral connections, type and number of expansion modules, and
attached devices. For example, AT keyboards typically draw their power directly from the
VSBC-6, and driving long RS-232 lines at high speed can increase power demand.
LITHIUM BATTERY
Warning!
To prevent shorting, premature failure, or damage to the lithium battery, do not
place the board on a conductive surface such as metal, black conductive foam, or
the outside surface of a metalized ESD protective pouch. The lithium battery may
explode if mistreated. Do not recharge, disassemble, or dispose of in fire. Dispose
of used batteries promptly.
Normal battery voltage should be at least 3.0V. If the voltage drops below 3.0V, contact the
factory for a replacement (part number T-HB3/5-2). Life expectancy under normal use is
approximately 10 years.
Note!

CPU CLOCK SPEED MULTIPLIER
Jumper block V11 is used to multiply the on-board 66 MHz bus clock to match the internal clock
speed of the CPU chip. For example, the 200 MHz CPU shown shown below uses a multiplier of
3.0
See page 21 for jumper configuration details.
CPU CORE VOLTAGE SELECTION
Jumper block V12 is used to program a variable output voltage regulator to match the VCORE
power supply requirements of the CPU chip. The VCORE voltage can be determined by examining
the information marked on the lid of the CPU chip.
Warning!
To prevent damage to the CPU chip or the VSBC-6 circuity, you must always
double check the VCORE voltage indicated on the cover of the CPU chip and make
sure jumper V12 is set properly.
APPROVED CPU LIST
The following list of Socket 7, 3.3V I/O voltage, 66MHz external bus compliant CPU chips are
approved for use in the VSBC-6. Care must be taken to correctly configure jumper V11 to match
the CPU Clock Speed Multiplier as shown in the table below. Jumper V12 must be configured to
match the CPU Core Voltage as marked on the cover of the CPU chip. See pages 21 and 22 for
jumper configuration details.

CMOS RAM
CLEARING CMOS RAM
Jumper V4[2-3] is normally inserted to provide battery power to the CMOS RAM circuits. The
jumper can be briefly moved to position V4[1-2] to erase the contents of the CMOS RAM should
it become necessary to do so. Do not operate the board with the jumper in the erase position.
Note!
The jumper should remain in position V4[1-2] for a full minute to properly erase
the CMOS RAM contents.
Real Time Clock
The VSBC features a year 2000 compliant, battery-backed 146818 compatible real time
clock/calendar chip. Under normal battery conditions, the clock will maintain accurate
timekeeping functions during periods when the board is powered off.
SETTING THE CLOCK
The CMOS Setup utility (accessed by pressing the [DEL] key during a system boot) can be used
to set the time/date of the real time clock.
Disk on Chip
Socket U22 will accept an M-Systems DiskOnChip (DOC) Flash Disk for non-volatile,
read/write data storage. The DOC can be configured as a boot device
ENABLE / DISABLE
The DOC can be enabled or disabled through CMOS Setup by going into the Custom screen and
setting "64 K memory page at E000 "DOC" or "Disabled". When enabled, the DOC appears in
the upper memory region as an 64 K page frame from E0000h to EFFFFh.

Serial Ports
Serial Ports
The VSBC-6 features four on-board 16550 based serial channels located at standard PC I/O
addresses. COM1 and COM2 are RS-232 (115.2K baud) serial ports with interrupts fixed at
IRQ4 and IRQ3 respectively. IRQ use can be enabled/disabled in CMOS Setup.
COM3 and COM4 can be operated in RS-232, RS-422, or RS-485 modes. Two additional nonstandard baud rates are also available (programmable in the normal baud registers) of 230K and
460K baud. IRQ lines are chosen in CMOS Setup, and can be mapped to any IRQ line.
Each COM port can be independently enabled or disabled in the CMOS Setup screen.
COM PORT CONFIGURATION
There are no configuration jumpers for COM1 and COM2 since they only operate in RS-232
mode.
Jumper V1 is used to configure COM3 for RS-232/422/485 operation. Jumper V3 is used to
configure COM4. See page 20 for jumper configuration details.
COM3 / COM4 RS-485 MODE LINE DRIVER CONTROL
The TxD+/TxD– differential line driver can be turned on and off by manipulating the DTR
handshaking line.
The following code example shows how to turn the line driver for COM3 or COM4 on and off:

PROGRAMMABLE LED
The Utility Connector J7 includes an output signal for attaching a software controlled LED.
Connect the cathode of the LED to J7 pin 3, connect the anode to +5V. An on-board resistor
limits the current to 15 mA when the circuit is turned on.
To turn the LED on and off, set or clear bit D7 in I/O port 0E0h (or 1E0h if selected in CMOS
Setup). When changing the register, make sure not to alter the value of the other bits.
The following code examples show how to turn on and off the LED. Refer to page 55 for further
information:

Ethernet Interface
Ethernet Interface
The VSBC-6 features an industry-standard Ethernet interface based on the SMC LAN
LAN91C96 Interface Chip. While this interface is not NE2000 compatible, the SMC 9000 series
is widely supported. Drivers are readily available to support a variety of operating systems such
as QNX, VxWorks and other RTOS vendors. Win95/98/NT ship with built-in support for this
Ethernet interface. The drivers load automatically when the operating system is installed.
HARDWARE CONFIGURATION
Jumper V6[3-4] is used to select the base I/O address for the Ethernet interface, and jumper
V6[1-2] is used to select the Ethernet media you will be using. Select the twisted pair interface if
you want to connect a twisted pair cable to the RJ45 connector. Select the AUI interface if you
want to attach an external transceiver or Media Attachment Unit (MAU). This allows use of
thick or thin coax cable, or fiber optic media to be used.
See page 21 for jumper configuration details.
Note!
Use of the AUI interface requires connection of +12V power to the VSBC-6.
SOFTWARE CONFIGURATION
The CMOS Setup screen is used to define the base address and the IRQ line used by the Ethernet
interface, or to enable/disable the device. When disabled, the ethernet interface is "parked" at I/O
addresses 180h – 18Fh and it does not use any interrupts.

Watchdog Timer
Watchdog Timer
A watchdog timer circuit is included on the VSBC-6 to reset the CPU if proper software
execution fails or a hardware malfunction occurs.
ENABLING THE WATCHDOG
To enable or disable the watchdog, set or clear bit D0 in I/O port 0E0h (or 1E0h if selected in
CMOS Setup). When changing the contents of the register, make sure not to alter the value of the
other bits.
The following code example enables the watchdog:
in
or
out
Note!
al,E0h
al,01h
E0h,al
The watchdog timer powers up in a disabled state.
REFRESHING THE WATCHDOG
If the watchdog timer is enabled, software must periodically refresh the watchdog timer at a rate
faster than the timer is set to expire (250 ms minimum). Outputting a 5Ah to the Watchdog
Timer Hold-Off Register at 0E1h (or 1E1h if selected in CMOS Setup) resets the watchdog timeout period, preventing the CPU from being reset for the next 250 ms. See page 56 for additional
information.
There is no provision for selecting a different timeout period using software.
The following code example refreshes the watchdog:

ACQMOD = 1
External Acquisition. Use this mode for precise control of the
sampling aperture and/or independent control of acquisition and conversion
times. The acquisition and start-of-conversion is controlled with two separate
writes to the ACR register. The first write, written with ACQMOD = 1, starts
and acquisition interval of indeterminate length. The second write, written with
ACQMOD = 0, terminates acquisition and starts conversion. However, if the
second write contains ACQMOD = 1, an indefinite acquisition interval is
restarted.
Note! The address bits for the input mux (A0–A2) must have the same values on the

PC/104 Expansion Bus
PC/104 Expansion Bus
The VSBC-6 will accept up to four PC/104 and/or three PC/104-Plus expansion modules. Both
3.3V and 5.0V modules are supported.
ARRANGING THE STACK
If PC/104-Plus modules will be used, they go on the stack first (closest to the VSBC-6 circuit
board). The first module is called "slot 0", the next module is "slot 1", and the third module is
"slot 2". Make sure to correctly configure the "slot position" jumpers on each PC/104-Plus
module to match it's physical position in the stack.
The BIOS automatically configures the I/O ports and Memory map allocation, including
allocation of interrupts.
PC/104 modules are stacked on top of the PC/104-Plus modules; 16-bit modules first followed
by 8-bit PC/104 modules. Lastly, non-standard modules which lack feedthrough connectors
should be assembled on top of the stack.
Note
Some modules may require –12V and/or –5V for correct operation. Check that the
proper connections to the 3-pin auxiliary power input connector (J1) are made if
your expansion module(s) use these voltages. See pages 17 and 23 for details.
I/O CONFIGURATION
PC/104 Modules
PC/104 I/O modules should be addressed in the 100h – 3FFh address range. Care must be taken
to avoid the I/O addresses shown in the On-Board I/O Devices table on page 53. These ports are
used by on-board peripherals and video devices.
PC/104-Plus Modules
PC/104-Plus modules do not use CPU I/O addressing. No configuration is necessary except to
jumper the expansion module for the correct stack position.

Interrupt Configuration
Interrupt Configuration
The VSBC-6 has the standard complement of PC type interrupts. Ten non-shared interrupts are
routed to the PC/104 bus, and up to four IRQ lines are automatically allocated as needed to PCI
devices.
There are no interrupt configuration jumpers. All configuration is handled through CMOS setup.
The switches in the diagram below indicate the various CMOS Setup options. Closed switches
show factory default settings.
Note
If your design needs to use interrupt lines on the PC/104 bus, we recommend using
IRQ5, IRQ9, and/or IRQ10. Make sure to configure CMOS Setup with the chosen
PC/104 interrupts. This prevents their allocation to PCI devices.

A watchdog timer circuit is included on the VSBC-6 board to reset the CPU if proper software
execution fails or a hardware malfunction occurs. The watchdog timer is enabled/disabled by
writing to bit D0 of SCR
If the watchdog timer is enabled, software must periodically refresh the watchdog timer at a rate
faster than the timer is set to expire (250 ms minimum). Writing a 5Ah to WDHOLD resets the
watchdog timeout period, preventing the CPU from being reset for the next 250 ms.
