3.1 Anti-static Precautions
WARNING:
Failure to take ESD precautions during the installation of the MMGA
may result in permanent damage to the MMGA and severe injury to the
user.
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can cause serious damage to electronic components,
including the MMGA. Dry climates are especially susceptible to ESD. It is therefore critical
that whenever the MMGA, or any other electrical component is handled, the following
anti-static precautions are strictly adhered to.
Wear an anti-static wristband: Wearing a simple anti-static wristband can
help to prevent ESD from damaging the board.
Self-grounding: Before handling the board touch any grounded conducting
material. During the time the board is handled, frequently touch any
conducting materials that are connected to the ground.
Use an anti-static pad: When configuring the MMGA, place it on an
antic-static pad. This reduces the possibility of ESD damaging the MMGA.
Only handle the edges of the PCB: When handling the PCB, hold the PCB
by the edges.
3.2 Unpacking
3.2.1 Unpacking Precautions
When the MMGA is unpacked, please do the following:
Follow the anti-static precautions outlined in Section 3.1.
Make sure the packing box is facing upwards so the MMGA does not fall out
of the box.
Make sure all the components shown in Section 3.3 are present.

5.1 Anti-static Precautions
WARNING:
Failure to take ESD precautions during the installation of the MMGA
may result in permanent damage to the MMGA and severe injury to the
user.
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can cause serious damage to electronic components,
including the MMGA. Dry climates are especially susceptible to ESD. It is therefore critical
that whenever the MMGA, or any other electrical component is handled, the following
anti-static precautions are strictly adhered to.

NOTE:
The following discussion applies to DOS environment.
Contact
CyberResearch support or visit the CyberResearch website visited for
specific drivers for more sophisticated operating systems like Microsoft
Windows.
The Watchdog Timer is provided to ensure that standalone systems can always recover
from catastrophic conditions that cause the CPU to crash. This condition may have
occurred by external EMI or a software bug. When the CPU stops working correctly,
Watchdog Timer either performs a hardware reset (cold boot) or a Non-Maskable Interrupt
(NMI) to bring the system back to a known state.
A BIOS function call (INT 15H) is used to control the Watchdog Timer:
INT 15H:
AH – 6FH Sub-function:
AL – 2:
Sets the Watchdog Timer’s period.
BL:
Time-out value (Its unit-second is dependent on the item “Watchdog
Timer unit select” in CMOS setup).
Table D-1: AH-6FH Sub-function
Call sub-function 2 to set the time-out period of Watchdog Timer first. If the time-out value
is not zero, the Watchdog Timer starts counting down. While the timer value reaches zero,
the system resets. To ensure that this reset condition does not occur, calling sub-function
2 must periodically refresh the Watchdog Timer. However, the Watchdog timer is disabled
if the time-out value is set to zero.
A tolerance of at least 10% must be maintained to avoid unknown routines within the
operating system (DOS), such as disk I/O that can be very time-consuming.

G.1 Introduction
The Intel® ICH9DO chipset can provide data protection for serial ATA (SATA) disks via
the Intel® Matrix Storage Manager using one of three fault-tolerant RAID levels: RAID 1, 5
or 10. When using two hard drives, matrix RAID allows RAID 0 and RAID 1 functions to be
combined, where critical files can be stored on RAID 1, and RAID 0 can be used for
non-critical items such as software. RAID 5 and RAID 0 can be combined to provide
higher performance, capacity, and fault tolerance.
CAUTION!
A configured RAID volume (which may consist of multiple hard drives) appears
to an operating system as a contingent storage space. The operating system
will not be able to distinguish the physical disk drives contained in a RAID
configuration.
G.1.1 Precautions
One key benefit a RAID configuration brings is that a single hard drive can fail within a
RAID array without damaging data. With RAID1 array, a failed drive can be replaced and
the RAID configuration restored.
WARNING!
Irrecoverable data loss occurs if a working drive is removed when trying to
remove a failed drive. It is strongly recommended to mark the physical
connections of all SATA disk drives. Drive locations can be identified by
attaching stickers to the drive bays. If a drive member of a RAID array should
fail, the failed drive can then be correctly identified.
240

CyberResearch Motherboards
MMGA Series
CAUTION!
Do not accidentally disconnect the SATA drive cables. Carefully route the
cables within the chassis to avoid system down time.
G.2 Features and Benefits
Supports RAID levels 0, 1, 5 and 10
Supports connectivity to two or more disk drives
Supported Operating Systems include: Windows XP, Windows Server 2003
and Windows Vista
G.3 Accessing the Intel® Matrix Storage Manager
To access the Intel® Matrix Storage Manager, please follow the steps below.
Step 1: Connect SATA drives to the system. Connect two or more SATA drives to the
system. Make sure the drives have the same capacity, are the same type and
have the same speed.
NOTE:
Make sure the SATA drives are EXACTLY the same when they are configured
in a RAID configuration. If they are not the same size, disk drive capacity is
sacrificed and overall performance affected.
Step 2: Enable SATA drives in BIOS. Start the computer and access the BIOS setup
program. Enable SATA support for all IDE devices. Refer to the applicable BIOS
configuration section in this user manual.

Product Service
Diagnosis and Debug
CyberResearch, Inc. maintains technical support lines staffed by experienced
Applications Engineers and Technicians. There is no charge to call and we will
return your call promptly if it is received while our lines are busy. Most problems
encountered with data acquisition products can be solved over the phone. Signal
connections and programming are the two most common sources of difficulty.
CyberResearch support personnel can help you solve these problems, especially
if you are prepared for the call.
To ensure your call’s overall success and expediency:
1)
2)
3)
4)
5)
6)
Have the phone close to the PC so you can conveniently and quickly take
action that the Applications Engineer might suggest.
Be prepared to open your PC, remove boards, report back-switch or
jumper settings, and possibly change settings before reinstalling the
modules.
Have a volt meter handy to take measurements of the signals you are
trying to measure as well as the signals on the board, module, or power
supply.
Isolate problem areas that are not working as you expected.
Have the source code to the program you are having trouble with available
so that preceding and prerequisite modes can be referenced and
discussed.
Have the manual at hand. Also have the product’s utility disks and any
other relevant disks nearby so programs and version numbers can be
checked.
Preparation will facilitate the diagnosis procedure, save you time, and avoid
repeated calls. Here are a few preliminary actions you can take before you call
which may solve some of the more common problems:
1)
2)
3)
4)
Check the PC-bus power and any power supply signals.
Check the voltage level of the signal between SIGNAL HIGH and SIGNAL
LOW, or SIGNAL+ and SIGNAL– . It CANNOT exceed the full scale range
of the board.
Check the other boards in your PC or modules on the network for address
and interrupt conflicts.
Refer to the example programs as a baseline for comparing code.
