1.3.1
CompactPCI Bus Interface
The cPCI-6830 operates in a 6U CompactPCI system. The CompactPCI
standard is electrically identical to the PCI local bus standard but has been
enhanced to work in harsh environments and support more peripheral
slots. Additionally, when used in a Hot Swap compliant backplane and in
accordance with the CompactPCI Hot Swap Specification, PICMG 2.1,
Version 1.0 the cPCI-6830 supports hosting hot swappable peripherals in a
powered system. The cPCI-6830 can also function in a standard (non-Hot
Swap) CompactPCI system without live insertion and extraction capability.
1.3.2
Pentium III or Tualatin Processor
The cPCI-6830 uses the Intel Pentium III or Tualatin Processor. These
processors are highly integrated assembly containing immediate
system-level support. The 256 / 512 KB (depending on model of processor)
on-die transfer L2 cache is integrated with the CPU, eliminating the need for
separate components and improving performance.
The Pentium III (Coppermine) processor runs a t a core speed of up to 1GHz,
with a Front Side Bus (FSB) speed of 100 or 133 MHz. The Tualatin
processor core speed is 1.4GHz with the FSB at 133 MHz. The VIA PRO266T
DDR sets the FSB operation at 66/100/133 MHz (auto-selected).
1.3.3
Interrupts
The enhanced interrupt controller supported by the VT8233 provides the
cPCI-6830 with a total of 15 interrupt inputs. Interrupt controller features
include support for:
•
Level-triggered and edge-triggered inputs
•
Individual input masking
•
Fixed and rotating priorities
Interrupt sources include:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Counter/Timers
Serial I/O
Keyboard
Printer Port
Floppy disk
IDE interface
Real-Time Clock
On-board PCI devices
Enhanced capabilities include the ability to configure each interrupt level for
active high going edge or active low-level inputs.
6 • Introduction
1.3.4
PICMG 2.1 Hot Swap Support
The cPCI-6830 Hot-Swap capability allows non-system slot boards to be
added or removed while the system is powered up. The cPCI-6830
provides independent clocks for each slot and access to the ENUM# signal
on the backplane are compatible to PICMG 2.1 Hot Swap Specification.
However, the cPCI-6830 itself is not hot swappable.
The hot swappable system is dependent on system controller, peripheral
cards, backplane, operating system supporting, driver supporting and
application supporting.
1.3.5
Power Ramp Circuitry
The cPCI-6830 features a power controller with power ramp circuitry to allow
the board's voltages to be ramped in a controlled fashion. The power ramp
circuitry eliminates any large voltage or current spikes caused by hot
swapping boards. This controlled ramping is a requirement of the
CompactPCI Hot Swap specification, PICMG 2.1, Version 1.0. The
cPCI-6830's power controller unconditionally resets the board when it
detects that the 3.3V, 5V, and 12V supplies are below an acceptable
operating limit. These limits are defined as 4.75V (5V supply), 3.0V (3.3V
supply), and 10.0V (+12V supply).
1.3.6
Watchdog Timer
The watchdog timer optionally monitors system operation and can be
programmed for different timeout periods (from 1 seconds to 255 seconds
or 1 minute to 255 minutes). It is a two-stage watchdog, meaning that it can
be enabled to produce a non-maskable interrupt (NMI) or a "CPU init" before
it generates a Reset. Failure to strobe the watchdog timer within the
programmed time period may result in an NMI, a reset request, or both. A
register bit can be enabled to indicate if the watchdog timer caused the reset
event. This watchdog timer register is cleared on power-up, enabling
system software to take appropriate action if the watchdog generated the
reboot. See Chapter 7, "Watchdog Timer," for more information, including
sample code.
1.3.7
Ethernet Interfaces
The cPCI-6830 provides three 10/100Mbps Ethernet interface. Two Ethernet
interface are supplied via the Intel 82559 chip, the other one is supplied via
the VIA VT6103 PHY chip, which is connected to the VT8233. Every port is
assigned a unique static MAC Address. The board’s Ethernet Addresses
are displayed on three labels attached to the board. The integrated Ethernet
controller enabling/disabling depends on the existence of VT6103. The
BIOS have a selection in the CMOS setup to disable these three LAN ports.
Introduction • 7
1.3.8
Serial I/O
Two serial ports are supported on cPCI-6830. The EIA232 drivers and
receivers reside on board. COM2 is a DB9 connector on the rear panel and
COM1 is available as a RJ45 connector on the front panel. Both ports will be
configured as DTE. Firmware will initialize the two serial ports as COM1 and
COM2 with ISA I/O base addresses of 3F8h and 2F8h respectively. This
default configuration also assigns COM1 to IRQ4 and COM2 to IRQ3. The
cPCI-6830 serial controller resides in the ITE IT8705F Super I/O device.
1.3.9
IEEE-1284 Parallel Port/Printer Interface
The parallel I/O interface signals are routed to a DB25 connector on the rear
I/O module. This port supports the full IEEE-1284 specifications and
provides the basic printer interface.
Firmware will initialize the parallel port as LPT1 with ISA I/O base address of
378h. This default configuration also assigns the parallel port to IRQ7. The
printer interface mode (Normal, Extended, EPP, or ECP) is selectable
through the BIOS SETUP utility with the ITE IT8705F Super I/O device
managing the cPCI-6830’s parallel port.
1.3.10 Universal Serial Bus (USB)
The Universal Serial Bus (USB) provides a common interface to
slower-speed peripherals. Functions such as keyboard, serial ports,
printer port, and mouse ports can be consolidated into USB, simplifying the
cabling requirements of computers. The cPCI-6830 provides two USB ports
on the rear I/O module and is controlled by the VT8233 device.
1.3.11 IDE Controller and Floppy Interface Controller
The cPCI-6830 includes an IDE Controller (in the VT8233) and a Floppy Disk
Controller (in the IT8705). The IDE Controller provides support for internal or
external IDE drives. Signals are available at the IDE connectors CN5 and
CN6. IDE1 (CN6) can be connected to either a 40 or 44-pin pin header while
IDE2 is only available in a 40-pin connection. The FDD Controller provides
support for an external FDD drives. Signals are available at the FDD
connector CN8 and are routed to a 34-pin pin header.
1.3.12 Keyboard/Mouse Controller
The cPCI-6830 includes an on-board PC/AT keyboard and mouse
controller. The keyboard/mouse signals are available through the PS/2
circular DIN on the front panel. The cPCI-6830’s keyboard/mouse controller
resides in the ITE VT8233 device
8 • Introduction
1.3.13 Software
The cPCI-6830 includes the ADLINK NuIPC Embedded BIOS loaded in
on-board flash. The BIOS is user-configurable to boot an operating system
from local flash memory, a fixed or floppy drive, or over a network.
The cPCI-6830 is compatible with all major PC operating systems. ADLINK
provides support, which may include additional drivers for ADLINK
peripherals. Software device drivers for the cPCI-6830 may be found in the

A detailed description and pin-out for each connector is given in the
following section.
2.2.1
VGA Connector
The cPCI-6830 provides standard analog SVGA output on the rear I/O panel.
The video function is provided via the ATI Rage XL VGA chip. The BIOS has
a selection in the CMOS setup to disable the onboard video to allow the user
to use a PCI video as the primary video controller. The BIOS also has a
selection to disable the onboard video to allow the user to reclaim the
memory for other applications without having to add another video card.

USB Connectors
The cPCI-6830 supports 2 USB serial ports on the rear I/O panel. Additional
ports can be added through the use o f external USB hubs. USB allows for
the easy addition of peripherals such as mouse, keyboard, speakers, etc.
Transfer rates up to 12Mb/s are supported. High-speed connections
(12Mb/s) require shielded cables. The cPCI-6770 provides the standard
0.5A at 5V to the peripherals and is protected by a single polyswitch.

Parallel Port Connector
The parallel I/O interface signals are routed to a DB25 on the rear panel. The
port supports the full IEEE-1284 specifications. It provides the basic printer
interface. Firmware will initialize the parallel port as LPT1 with ISA I/O base
address of 378h. This default configuration also assigns the parallel port to
IRQ7.

IDE Connector
The IDE interface connector is used for connection with IDE devices such as
hard disk drives and CD-ROMs. There are two EIDE interfaces supporting
up to 4 IDE devices on the cPCI-6830. The IDE interface signals are routed
to a 44-pin header.
The default mode is "compatibility mode," meaning that the interface uses
the PC-AT legacy addresses of F0h-1F7h, with 3F6h and interrupt IRQ14 for
the primary channel. The secondary channel uses I/O addresses
170h-177h, 376h and interrupt IRQ15. No memory addresses are used.

3.4
Operating System Installation
For more detailed information about your operating system, refer to the
documentation provided by the operating system vendor.
Install peripheral devices. CompactPCI devices are automatically
configured by the BIOS during the boot sequence.
Most operating systems require initial installation on a hard drive from a
floppy or CDROM drive. These devices should be configured, installed, and
tested with the supplied drivers before attempting to load the new operating
system.
Read the release notes and installation documentation provided by the
operating system vendor. Be sure to read any README files or documents
provided on the distribution disks, as these typically note documentation
discrepancies or compatibility problems.
Select the appropriate boot device order in the SETUP boot menu
depending on the OS installation media used. For example, if the OS
includes a bootable installation floppy, select Floppy as the first boot device
and reboot the system with the installation floppy installed in the floppy drive.
(Note that if the installation requires a non-bootable CD-ROM, it is
necessary to boot an OS with the proper CD-ROM drivers in order to access
the CD-ROM drive).
Proceed with the OS installation as directed, being sure to select
appropriate device types if prompted. Refer to the appropriate hardware
manuals for specific device types and compatibility modes of ADLINK
NuIPC products.
When installation is complete, reboot the system and set the boot device
order in the SETUP boot menu appropriately.

This chapter explains the operation of the cPCI-6830’s watchdog timer. It
provides an overview of watchdog operation and features, as well as a
sample code to help you learn how the watchdog timer works.
Utilities • 49
5.1
Watchdog Timer Overview
The primary function of the watchdog timer is to monitor the cPCI-6830’s
operation and take corrective action if the software fails to function as
programmed. The major features of the watchdog timer are:
• Two-stage
• Enabled and disabled through software control
• Armed and strobed through software control

Counter
Figure 5: Watchdog Timer Architecture
The cPCI-6830’s custom watchdog timer circuit is implemented in a
programmable logic device. The watchdog timer contains a "Control and
Status Register". The register allows the BIOS or user applications to
determine if a watchdog time out was the source of a particular reset.
The watchdog timer drives the First and Second Stages as follows:
The watchdog times out (First Stage) after a selected timeout interval.
NMI or INIT (software selectable) is driven high.
A hard reset occurs (Second Stage).
The timeout period is 1 – 255 seconds or 1 – 255 minutes. The watchdog is
normally strobed by reading the Watchdog Register (3F0h). This clears the
counter. Writes to this register also clear the counter.
50 • Utilities
5.1.1
Using the Watchdog in an Application
The following topic is provided to help you learn how to use the watchdog in
an application. The watchdog’s Reset function is described. A sample code
is provided. The Watchdog Reset is controlled through the watchdog’s
"Control and Status Register".
Watchdog Reset
An application using the reset feature enables the watchdog reset, sets
the terminal count period, and then periodically strobes the watchdog to
keep it from resetting the system. If a strobe is missed, the watchdog
times out and resets the system hardware.
The example shown below will reset the system after 15 seconds
ADLINK provides other examples and various sub functions for
WDT Programming
In order to simplify the programming code, ADLINK has provided a sub
function for programmers to implement with their software. For DOS,
Windows 95 or 98 and Window NT, the sub function format can be as
shown below:
Out_port (int IOport_number, int Counter_value)
IOport_number:0x3F0 -->W83977EF's configuration port.
0x2E -->W83627HF's configuration port.
Counter_value: 0 ~ 15300 (255 minutes)
(write a zero to disable the timer)
Under DOS, Windows 95 or 98
Create a project program name wdt.cpp under Turbo C/C++.
Under Windows NT
The library installation procedure:
(1)
Run the setup program under NT environment.
(2)
Reboot the system.
You can also write your own DLL by referring to the DOS sourced ADLINK
