Introduction
The PCM-4894 is an all-in-one single board 486 computer with
an onboard flat panel/CRT SVGA controller and PCI Ethernet interface. It offers all the functions of an industrial computer and its display capabilities on a single board, but fits in the
space of a 5.25" floppy drive (only 5.75" x 8"). This means the
PCM-4894 is your absolute best solution for embedded applications.
The onboard PCI-bus, flat panel/CRT SVGA controller uses the
CHIPS 65550 chipset with up to 2 MB of video memory (onboard 1MB). This chipset, used with the local PCI-bus, enables
32-bit graphic throughput at up to 33 MHz. Excellent for displayintensive applications, it supports various LCD types including
TFT, STN, B/W, and EL.
The onboard Ethernet Realtek RTL 8029AS PCI bus Ethernet
controller supports remote boot ROM functions.
The PCM-4894 supports the M-Systems DiskOnChip 2000
(optional) which is a new generation of high performance singlechip Flash Disk. It provides a Flash Disk (as a BIOS expansion)
which does not require any bus, slots, or connectors. It is also the
optimal solution for Single Board Computers because of its small
size, easy integration, plug-and-play functionality, and its low
power consumption. The DiskOnChip is available in capacities
from 2MB to 72MB and fits in a standard 32-pin DIP socket.
Another feature of the PCM-4894 is the inclusion of a high
speed, local bus IDE controller. This controller supports (through
ATA PIO) mode 3 and mode 4 hard disks, enabling data transfer
rates in excess of 11 MB/second. Up to two IDE devices can be
connected, including large hard disks, CD-ROM drives, tape
backup drives, or other IDE devices. The built-in, enhanced IDE
controller provides a 4-layer, 32-bit, posted write buffer and a 4layer, 32-bit read-prefetch buffer to boost IDE performance.

Setting jumpers
You configure your card to match the needs of your application by
setting jumpers. A jumper is the simplest kind of electric switch.
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.

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.
12 PCM-4894 User Manual
Safety precautions
Warning! Always completely disconnect the power cord
from your chassis whenever you are working on
it. Do not make connections while the power is
on because sensitive electronic components can
be damaged by the sudden rush of power. Only
experienced electronics personnel should open
the PC chassis.
Caution!
Always ground yourself to remove any static
charge before touching the CPU card. Modern
electronic devices are very sensitive to static
electric charges. 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.
Chapter 2 Installation
13
Installing DRAM (SIMMs)
The PCM-4894 CPU card provides two 72-pin SIMM (Single Inline Memory Module) sockets and supports between 4MB and
64MB.
When installing SIMMs, make sure that Bank 1 is filled first.
Installing SIMMs
Note: that the modules can only fit into a socket one way.
1. Insert the memory module into the socket at a moderate angle.
2. Push the module toward the vertical posts at both ends of the
socket until the module is upright and the retaining clips at
both ends of the module click into place. When positioned
correctly, the pins on top of the vertical posts should correspond to the circular holes on the ends of the module.
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 for each module you install.
Removing SIMMs
If you need to remove a SIMM, follow the procedures below:
1. Supporting the SIMM with a finger, use a pen or a similarly
shaped object and press one retaining clip straight down.
2. Repeat for the other side. When released, the retaining clips
will push the SIMM up and out of its upright position.
3. Carefully pull the SIMM out of the socket with your fingers.
4. Repeat the above steps for each module you remove.
14 PCM-4894 User Manual
Ethernet connector (CN1)
The Ethernet connects to the PCM-4894 via an adapter cable to a
10-pin polarized header (CN1). For 10Base-T RJ-45 operation,

Parallel port connector (CN3)
Normally, the parallel port is used to connect the card to a printer.
The PCM-4894 includes an onboard parallel port, accessed
through the CN3 connector, a 26-pin flat-cable connector. The
CPU card comes with an adapter cable, which lets you use a
traditional DB-25 connector. The cable has a 26-pin connector
on one end and a DB-25 connector on the other.

IDE hard drive connector (CN4)
You can attach two Enhanced Integrated Device Electronics hard
disk drives to the PCM-4894's internal controller. The card
comes with a 40-pin flat piggyback cable. This cable has one 44pin 2.0mm pitch and two identical 40-pin flat-cable connectors.
Connecting the hard drive
Usually, wire number 1 on the cable is red or blue, and the other
wires are gray.
1. Connect one end of the cable to the IDE connector. Make
sure that the red (or blue) wire corresponds to pin 1 on the
connector, which is labeled on the board.
2. Plug the other end of the cable to the Enhanced IDE hard
drive, with pin 1 on the cable corresponding to pin 1 on the
hard drive. (See your hard drive's documentation for the
location of the connector.)
Unlike floppy drives, you can make the connections with any of
the connectors on the cable. If you install two drives, you will
need to set one as the master and one as the slave. You do this
using jumpers on the drives. If you install just one drive, set it as
the master.

The PCM-4894 CPU card comes with a 34-pin daisy-chain drive
connector cable. On one end of the cable is a 34-pin flat-cable
connector. There are two sets of floppy disk drive connectors,
one in the middle, and one on the other end. Each set consists of
a 34-pin flat-cable connector (usually used for 3.5" drives) and a
printed-circuit board connector (usually used for 5.25" drives).
Connecting the floppy drive
1. Plug the 34-pin flat-cable connector into the CN5 connector.
2. Attach the appropriate connector on the other end of the cable
to the floppy drive(s). You can use only one connector in the
set. The set on the end (after the twist in the cable) connects
to the A: floppy. The set in the middle connects to the B:
floppy.

Keyboard and PS/2 mouse connectors
(CN7)
The mainboard provides a keyboard connector which supports
both a keyboard and a PS/2 style mouse. In most cases, especially
in embedded applications, a keyboard is not used. The standard
PC/AT BIOS will report an error or fail during power-on self-test
(POST) after a reset if the keyboard is not present. The mainboard
BIOS Advanced setup menu allows you to select "System Keyboard" under the "Present" or "Absent" selection. This allows nokeyboard operation in embedded system applications without the
system halting under POST (power-on-self-test).

System test and initialization
These routines test and initialize board hardware. If the routines
encounter an error during the tests, you will either hear a few
short beeps or see an error message on the screen. There are two
kinds of errors: fatal and nonfatal. The system can usually
continue the boot up sequence with nonfatal errors. Nonfatal
error messages usually appear on the screen along with the
following instructions:
press <F1> to RESUME
Write down the message and press the F1 key to continue the
bootup sequence.
System configuration verification
These routines check the current system configuration against the
values stored in the card’s CMOS memory. If they don’t match,
the program outputs an error message. You will then need to run
the BIOS setup program to set the configuration information in
memory.
There are three situations in which you will need to change the
CMOS settings:
1. You are starting your system for the first time.
2. You have changed the hardware attached to your system.
3. The CMOS memory has lost power and the configuration
information has been erased.

Power Management
Power management lets you set up your computer to save
electricity when it is not actively in use by putting the system into
progressively greater power saving modes. In the power management scheme there are four system states which proceed in the
following sequence:
Normal à
Doze à
42 PCM-4894 User Manual
Standby à
Suspend
There are four selections for Power Management (PM):
Disabled
Turns off PM
Max Saving
Maximized power saving by activating
maximum power saving settings after one
minute of system inactivity.
Min Saving
Produces less power saving by activating
moderate power saving settings after one hour
of system inactivity.
User Defined
You set the power saving options manually.
With the exception of Disabled, three of the above selections
have "fixed-mode" settings. Therefore, when PM is set to
Disabled, some items which are predefined will become unmodifiable.
PM Control by APM
When this is set to Yes, the Advanced Power Management feature
in Microsoft Windows controls power management operation.
The default setting is No.
Video Off Option
User can select 4 different modes for turning off the video. The
modes are a function of the PM mode of the computer. The
choices are All ModesàOff, Always On, SuspendàOff, and
Susp, StbyàOff.

Video Off Method
This governs monitor power saving by controlling how power
management blanks the monitor screen. The default setting
blanks the screen and turns off vertical and horizontal scanning
and requires a monitor with "green" features. If you don't have
this type of monitor, use the Blank option. DPMS (Display

HDD Power Down
When enabled and after the selected time of system inactivity, the
hard disk drive will be powered down while all other devices will
remain active.
Doze Mode
This sets the period of system inactivity after which the system
goes into Doze mode, the most limited power saving state. The
settings range from 10 seconds to 1 hour and can be set manually
when power management is in User Define mode. The default
setting is Disabled. When the system goes into power saving
mode, power management will skip to the next mode in the
sequence if this is disabled.
44 PCM-4894 User Manual
Standby Mode
This sets the period of system inactivity after which the system
goes into Standby mode, the intermediate power saving state.
The settings range from 10 seconds to 1 hour and can be set
manually when power management is in User Define mode. The
default setting is Disabled. When the system goes into power
saving mode, power management will skip to the next mode in the
sequence if this is disabled.
Suspend Mode
This sets the period of system inactivity after which the system
goes into Suspend mode, the maximum power saving state. The
settings range from 10 seconds to 1 hour and can be set manually
when power management is in User Define mode. The default
setting is Disabled. When the system goes into power saving
mode, power management will skip to the next mode in the
sequence if this is disabled.

PM Events
PM events are I/O events whose occurrence can prevent the
system from entering a power saving mode or can awaken the
system from such a mode. In effect, the system remains alert for
anything which occurs to a device which is configured as Enabled, even when the system is in a power down mode.
When an I/O device wants to gain the attention of the operating
system, it signals this by causing an IRQ (Interrupt Request) to
occur. When the operating system is ready to respond to the
request, it interrupts itself and performs the service. The following is a list of IRQs, which can be disabled:

PCI IDE IRQ Map To
This allows you to configure your system to the type of IDE disk
controller in use. The more apparent difference is the type of
slot being used.
If you have equipped your system with a PCI controller, changing
this allows you to specify which slot has the controller and which
PCI interrupt (A, B, C, D) is associated with the connected hard

Software drivers
This chapter describes the operation and installation of the software
drivers supplied on the Supporting CD-ROM that are shipped with
your product.
The onboard VGA adapter is based on the CHIPS VGA Flat Panel/CRT
controller and is fully IBM VGA compatible. This controller offers a
large set of extended functions and higher resolutions. If you intend
to use your VGA adapter in standard VGA modes only, you do not
need to install any of these drivers. Since your VGA adapter is fully
compatible, it does not require any special drivers to operate in
standard modes.
The purpose of the enclosed software drivers is to take advantage of
the extended features of the CHIPS VGA Flat Panel/CRT controller.
Hardware configuration
Some of the high-resolution drivers provided in this package will work
only in certain system configurations. If a driver does not display
correctly, try the following:
1. Change the display controller to CRT-only mode, rather than flat
panel or simultaneous display mode. Some high-resolution drivers
will display correctly only in CRT mode.
2. If a high-resolution mode is not supported on your system, try
using a lower-resolution mode. For example, 1024 x 768 mode will
not work on some systems, but 800 x 600 mode is supported on
most.

Watchdog Timer
Demo Program
The following demo program illustrates
the programming steps required to
enable, set, and disable the watchdog
timer.
Watchdog timer demo program
How to program the WATCHDOG TIMER
1. To enable the time-out interval of watchdog timer:
-- output the desired value to port 0x443. The resolution of
watchdog timer is 1 sec. Since the data is of 1 byte, the timeout interval will be 1 sec ~ 255 sec.
Whenever the value of timer is not zero, the timer will
automatically count down
e.g. outportb(0x443, 30);
// set interval to 30 sec and
count down
2. To set the time-out event:
-- output data to port 0x444. The default setting is “reset
system”.
· 0: reset system (default)
· 1, 2, 3: IRQ 10, 15, 11 respectively
· 4: NMI
e.g. outportb(0x444, 0);
// set time-out event to
reset-system
3. To disable watchdog timer:
-- output value “0” to port 0x443.
e.g. outportb(0x443, 0);
A-64
PCM-4894 User Manual
// disable watchdog timer
4. To refresh watchdog timer:
-- output the desired value to port 0x443. The timer will reset to
the new value and count down.
e.g. outportb(0x443,10);
// set time-out interval to
10 sec
…
outportb(0x443,20);
// reset watchdog timer to
20 sec
Demo program in C
outportb(0x444, 0);
// set time-out event to reset-system
outportb(0x443, 10);
// set time-out interval to 10 seconds
job1();
// execute your job here, be sure your job
will finished within 10 seconds
outputb(0x443,20);
// set time-out interval to 20 seconds and
refresh watchdog timer, otherwise the
system will reset after time-out
job2();
// another job finished within 20 seconds
outportb(0x443, 0);
// disable watchdog timer
