General Introduction
This chapter gives background
information on MIC-7500.
1.1 Introduction
MIC-7500 is a compact, fanless system incorporating late-generation Intel® 14nm
platform with the new PCH_QM170 processer on a proprietary form factor M/B. MIC7500 system design concept is that of “the expansion slot module”, so different applications can integrate the MIC-7500 system to form a complete industrial computer.
The MIC-7500 also can serve as an independent, fanless, Compact Embedded Box
and accepts a wide range of DC power inputs. The rugged aluminum case not only
provides a great thermal solution, but also resists high EMI/shock/vibration. MIC-7500
is equipped with Intel® 6th Generation Core™ i CPU featuring 8 cores, making it
highly suitable for embedded and industrial PC applications requiring high processor
performance within a limited space. It features powerful I/O interfaces, including
Ethernet, USB 3.0, serial port, C-Fast slot, and two Mini PCIes.

This chapter introduces external
IO and the installation of
MIC-7500 hardware.
2.1 Introduction
The following sections show the internal jumper settings and the external connectors
and pins assignment for applications.
2.2 Jumpers
2.2.1 Jumper description
You may configure the MIC-7500 to match the needs of your application by setting
jumpers. A jumper is a metal bridge used to close an electric 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 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 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. Generally, you
simply need a standard cable to make most connections.

Software Installation
To support demanding disk I/O, Intel® Q170 chipset integrates six Serial ATA controllers with software RAID 0, 1, 5, 10 capabilities.
RAID 0 striping increases the storage performance and is designed to speed up data
transfer rates for disk-intensive applications.
RAID 1 mirroring protects valuable data that might be lost in the event of a hard drive
failure.
RAID 5 array contains three or more hard drives where the data is divided into manageable blocks called strips. Parity is a mathematical method for recreating data that
was lost from a single drive, which increases fault-tolerance. The data and parity are
striped across all the hard drives in the array. The parity is striped in a rotating
sequence to reduce bottlenecks associated with the parity calculations.
RAID 10 array uses four hard drives to create a combination of RAID levels 0 and 1.
The data is striped across a two-drive array forming the RAID 0 component. Each of
the drives in the RAID 0 array is then mirrored by a RAID 1 component.

Programming the
Watchdog Timer
A.1 Programming the Watchdog Timer
The MIC-7500'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 NCT6106D. It provides the
following user-programmable functions:
 It 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).
