CHAPTER
Installation

This chapter describes how to set up the
main board hardware, including instructions on setting jumpers and connecting
peripherals, switches, and indicators. Be
sure to read all the safety precautions
before you begin the installation procedure.
Chapter 2 Installation 9
Setting jumpers
You can 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.

Open
Closed

Closed 2-3
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.
10 MB-662 User Manual
CPU installing and upgrading
You can upgrade to a more powerful Celeron CPU at any time.
Simply remove the old CPU, install the new one, and set the
jumpers for the new CPU speed.
Warning! Always disconnect the power cord from your
chassis when you are working on it. Do not
make connections while the power is on as
sensitive electronic components can be damaged by the sudden rush of power. Only experienced electronics personnel should open the
system chassis.
Caution!
Always ground yourself to remove any static
charge before touching the system board.
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 staticshielded bag when they are not in the chassis.
Install a CPU in the FC-370 socket
MB-622 Series provides a Flip-Chip (FC) socket for easy CPU
installation.
1. Make sure the FC-370 socket lever is in the upright position. To
raise the lever, pull it out to the side a little and raise it as far as
it will go.
2. Place the CPU in the empty socket. Follow the instructions that
came wth the CPU. If you have no instructions, do the following: Carefully align the CPU so it is parallel to the socket and
the notch on the corner of the CPU corresponds with the notch
on the inside of the socket. Gently slide the CPU in. It should
insert easily. If it doesn't, pull the lever up a little more.
Chapter 2 Installation 11
3. Press the lever down. The plate will slide forward. You will feel
some resistance as the pressure starts to secure the CPU in the
socket. This is normal and won't damage the CPU.
When the CPU is installed, the lever should snap into place at the
side of the socket.
Note:
To remove a CPU, pull the lever out to the side a
little and raise it as far as it will go. Lift the
CPU chip out.
When you install a new CPU, be sure to adjust the board settings,
such as CPU type and CPU clock. Improper settings may damage
the CPU.

Installing SDRAM (DIMMs)
System
Memory
The upper edge of the MB-662 contains two sockets for 168 pins
dual inline memory module (DIMM). The socket uses 3.3 V
unbuffered synchronous (SDRAM). DIMM is available in capacities of 16, 32, 64, 128, or 256 MB. The socket can be filled in the
DIMM of any size, giving your MB-662 single board computer
between 16 and 512 MB of memory.
Supplementary
information
about
DIMM
Your MB-662 can accept both regular and PC-100 SDRAM DIMM
Module(with or without parity). The MB-662 can also accept PC133 DIMM Module running at 100 Mega herts speed.
Single-sided modules are typically 16 or 128 MB; double-sided
modules are usually 32 or 256 MB.
Memory
Installation
Procedures
To install DIMM, first make sure the two handles of the DIMM
socket are in the "open" position. i.e. The handles remain outward.
Slowly slide the DIMM module along the plastic guides on both
ends of the socket. Then press the DIMM module right down into
the socket, until you hear a click. This is when the two handles
have automatically locked the memory module into the correct
position of the DIMM socket. (See Figure below) To take away the
memory module, just push both handles outward, and the memory
module will be ejected by the mechanism in the socket.

Floppy drive connector (CN7), FPC (CN9)
You can attach up to two floppy drives to the mainboard controller.
You can use any combination of 5¼" (360 KB and 1.2 MB) and/or
3½" (720 KB, 1.44 MB, and 2.88 MB) drives.
A 34-pin daisy chain drive connector cable for (CN7) is required for
a dual-drive system. On one end of the cable is a 34-pin flat cable
connector. On the other end are two sets of floppy disk drive connectors. Each set consists of a 34-pin flat-cable connector (usually
used for 3½" drives) and a printed-circuit board connector (usually
used for 5¼" drives). Plus an additional Flexible Printed Circuit
(FPC) connector (CN9), extra drive means extra memory for your
system. An ideal way for cost effective design.
Wire number 1 on the cable is normally red or blue, and the other
wires are usually gray.
Connecting the floppy drive
1. Plug the 34-pin flat-cable connector into CN7. Make sure that
the red or blue wire corresponds to pin 1 on the connector. No worries for CN9 FPC connector, it's guided design for error free connection.
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:
drive. The set in the middle connects to the B: drive.
3. If you are connecting a 5¼" floppy drive, line up the slot in the
printed circuit board with the blocked-off part of the cable connector.
If you are connecting a 3½" floppy drive, you may have trouble
determining which pin is pin number 1. Look for a number printed
on the circuit board indicating pin number 1. Also, the connector
on the floppy drive connector may have a slot. When the slot is up,
pin number 1 should be on the right. Check the documentation that
came with the drive for more information. If you desire, connect the
B: drive to the connectors in the middle of the cable as described
above.

IDE Hard Drive Connectors
Primary IDE Hard Drive Connector (CN16)
Secondary IDE Hard Drive Connector (CN17)
You can attach up to four Enhanced Integrated Device Electronics
hard disk drives to the mainboard's internal controller. The mainboard's IDE controller uses a PCI local-bus interface. This advance
interface supports faster data transfer and allows the IDE hard
drive to exceed 528 MB.
Connecting the hard drive
Connecting drives, their done in a daisy-chain fashion and requires
one of the three cables, depending on the drive size. 1.8" and 2.5"
drives need one 44-pin to two 44-pin flat cable connector. 3.5"
drives use one 44-pin to two 40-pin connector.
Wire number 1 on the cable is normally red or blue, and the other
wires are usually gray.
1. Connect one end of the cable to CN16 or CN17. Make sure that
the red (or blue) wire corresponds to pin 1 on the con- nector,
which is marked and connectors are slotted.
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
drives. (see your hard drive's documentation for the location of
the connector).
Connect a second drive as described above.
Unlike floppy drives, IDE hard drives can be connected to either
end of the cable. The pin definitions for this section are listed
on the next page.

Award BIOS Setup
This chapter describes how to configure

MB-662 User Manual
Starting setup
The Award BIOS is immediately activated when you first turn on
the computer. The BIOS reads system configuration information in
CMOS RAM and begins the process of checking out the system
and configuring it through the power-on self test (POST).
When these preliminaries are finished, the BIOS seeks an operating
system on one of the data storage devices (hard drive, floppy drive,
etc.). The BIOS launches the operating system and hands control of
system operations to it.
During POST, you can start the Setup program in one of two ways:
1.By pressing Del immediately after switching the system on, or
2.By pressing Del or pressing Ctrl-Alt-Esc when the following
message appears briefly at the bottom of the screen during POST:
TO ENTER SETUP BEFORE BOOT PRESS DEL KEY
If the message disappears before you respond and you still wish to
enter Setup, restart the system to try again by turning it OFF then
ON or pressing the RESET button on the system case. You may
also restart by simultaneously pressing Ctr-Alt-Del. If you do not
press the keys at the correct time and the system does not boot, an
error message appears and you are again asked to
PRESS F1 TO CONTINUE, DEL TO ENTER SETUP

HARD DISKS
The BIOS supports up to two IDE drives. This section does not
show information about other IDE devices, such as a CD-ROM
drive, or about other hard drive types, such as SCSI drives.
NOTE: We recommend that you select type AUTO for all drives.
The BIOS can automatically detect the specifications and optimal
operating mode of almost all IDE hard drives. When you select
type AUTO for a hard drive, the BIOS detects its specifications
during POST, every time the system boots.
If you do not want to select drive type AUTO, other methods of
Chapter 3 Award BIOS Setup

selecting the drive type are available:
1.Match the specifications of your installed IDE hard drive(s) with
the preprogrammed values for drive types 1 through 45.
2.Select USER and enter values into each drive parameter field.
3.Use the IDE HDD AUTO DECTECTION function in Setup.
Here is a brief explanation of drive specifications:
•Type:The BIOS contains a table of pre-defined drive types.
Each defined drive type has a specified number of
cylinders, number of heads, write precompensation
factor, landing zone, and number of sectors. Drives
whose specifications do not accommodate any predefined type are classified as type USER.
•Size:
Disk drive capacity (approximate). Note that this size is
usually slightly greater than the size of a formatted disk
given by a disk-checking program.
• Cyls:Number of cylinders
• Head: Number of heads
• Precomp: Write precompensation cylinder
• Landz: Landing zone
• Sector: Number of sectors
•
Mode: Auto, Normal, large, or LBA
- Auto: The BIOS automatically determines the optimal mode.
- Normal: Maximum number of cylinders, heads, and sectors
supported are 1024, 16, and 63.
- Large: For drives that do not support LBA and have more
than 1024 cylinders.
50
MB-662 User Manual
- LBA (Logical Block Addressing): During drive accesses, the
IDE controller transforms the data address described
by sector, head, and cylinder number into a physical
block address, significantly improving data transfer
rates. For drives with greater than 1024 cylinders.

Halt On
During the power-on-self-test (POST), the computer stops if the
BIOS detects a hardware error. You can tell the BIOS to ignore
certain errors during POST and continue the boot-up process.
These are the selections:
• No errors: POST does not stop for any errors.
• All errors If: the BIOS detects any non-fatal error, POST
stops and prompts you to take corrective action.
• All, But Keyboard: POST does not stop for a keyboard
error, bus stops for all other errors.All, But DiskettePOST does
not stop for diskette drive errors, but stops for all other errors.
• All, But Disk/Key: POST does not stop for a keyboard
or disk error, but stops for all other errors.
Memory
You cannot change any values in the Memory fields; they are only
for your information. The fields show the total installed random
access memory (RAM) and amounts allocated to base memory,
extended memory, and other (high) memory. RAM is counted in
kilobytes (KB: approximately one thousand bytes) and megabytes
(MB: approximately one million bytes).
RAM is the computer's working memory, where the computer
stores programs and data currently being used, so they are accessible to the CPU. Modern personal computers may contain up to 64
MB, 128 MB, or more.
•Base Memory
Typically 640 KB. Also called conventional memory. The DOS
operating system and conventional applications use this area.
52
MB-662 User Manual
•Extended Memory
Above the 1-MB boundary. Early IBM personal computers could
not use memory above 1 MB, but current PCs and their software
can use extended memory.
•Other Memory
Between 640 KB and 1 MB; often called High memory. DOS may
load terminate-and-stay-resident (TSR) programs, such as device
drivers, in this area, to free as much conventional memory as
possible for applications. Lines in your CONFIG.SYS file that start
with LOADHIGH load programs into high memory.

By choosing the BIOS FEATURES SETUP option from the
INITIAL SETUP SCREEN menu, the screen below is displayed.
54
MB-662 User Manual
The displayed configuration is based on the manufacturer's SETUP
DEFAULTS settings.
Virus Warning
When enabled, you receive a warning message if a program
(specifically, a virus) attempts to write to the boot sector or the
partition table of the hard disk drive. You should then run an antivirus program. Keep in mind that this feature protects only the boot
sector, not the entire hard drive.
NOTE: Many disk diagnostic programs that access the boot sector
table can trigger the virus warning message. If you plan to run
such a program, we recommend that you first disable the virus
warning.
CPU Internal Cache/External Cache
Cache memory is additional memory that is much faster than
conventional DRAM (system memory). CPUs from 486-type on up
contain internal cache memory, and most, but not all, modern PCs
have additional (external) cache memory. When the CPU requests
data, the system transfers the requested data from the main DRAM
into cache memory, for even faster access by the CPU.
The External Cache field may not appear if your system does not
have external cache memory.
CPU L2 Cache ECC Checking
When you select Enabled, memory checking is enable when the
external cache contains ECC SRAMs.
Quick Power On Self Test
Select Enabled to reduce the amount of time required to run the
power-on-self-test (POST). A quick POST skips certain steps. We
recommend that you normally disable quick POST. Better to find a
problem during POST than lose data during your work.

Boot Up from LAN
When enabled, the BIOS attempts to boot from a LAN boot image
before it attempts to boot from a local storage device.
The Choice: Disabled, Enabled
Boot Sequence
The original IBM PCs loaded the DOS operating system from
drive A (floppy disk), so IBM PC-compatible systems are designed
to search for an operating system first on drive A, and then on
drive C (hard disk). However, the BIOS now offers many boot
sequence options.
Swap Floppy Drive
This field is effective only in systems with two floppy drives.
Selecting enabled assigns physical drive B to logical drive A, and
physical drive A to logical drive B.
Boot Up Floppy Seek
When Enabled, the BIOS tests (seeks) floppy drives to determine
whether they have 40 or 80 tracks. Only 360-KB floppy drives
have 40 tracks; drives with 720 KB, 1.2 MB, and 1.44 MB
capacity all have 80 tracks. Because very few modern PCs have
40-track floppy drives, we recommend that you set this field to
Disabled to save time.
Boot Up NumLock Status
Toggle between On or Off to control the state of the NumLock key
when the system boots. When toggled On, the numeric keypad
generates numbers instead of controlling cursor operations.
Gate A20 Option
Gate A20 refers to the way the system addresses memory above 1
MB (extended memory). When set to Fast, the system chipset
controls Gate A20. When set to Normal, a pin in the keyboard
controller controls Gate A20. Setting Gate A20 to Fast improves
system speed, particularly with OS/2 and Windows.

Shadow
Software that resides in a read-only memory (ROM) chip on a
device is called firmware. The AwardBIOS permits shadowing of
firmware such as the system BIOS, video BIOS, and similar
operating instructions that come with some expansion peripherals,
such as, for example, a SCSI adaptor.
Shadowing copies firmware from ROM into system RAM, where
the CPU can read it through the 16-bit or 32-bit DRAM bus.
Firmware not shadowed must be read by the system through the 8bit X-bus. Shadowing improves the performance of the system
BIOS and similar ROM firmware for expansion peripherals, but it
also reduces the amount of high memory (640 KB to 1 MB)
available for loading device drivers, etc.
Enable shadowing into each section of memory separately. Many
system designers hardwire shadowing of the system BIOS and
eliminate a System BIOS Shadow option.
Video BIOS shadows into memory area C8000-DFFFF. The
remaining areas shown on the BIOS Features Setup screen may be
occupied by other expansion card firmware. If an expansion
peripheral in your system contains ROM-based firmware, you need
to know the address range the ROM occupies to shadow it into the
correct area of RAM.

Chapter 3 Award BIOS Setup
59
The displayed configuration is based on the manufacturer's SETUP
DEFAULTS settings.
This section allows you to configure the system based on the
specific features of the installed chipset. This chipset manages bus
speeds and access to system memory resources, such as SDRAM.
It also coordinates communications between the conventional ISA
bus and the PCI bus. It must be stated that these items should
never need to be altered. The default settings have been chosen
because they provide the best operating conditions for your system.
The only time you might consider making any changes would be if
you discovered that data was being lost while using your system.
Because of the complexity and technical nature of some of the
options, not all of the options are described here.
SDRAM RAS-to-CAS Delay
This field lets you control the number of DCLKs between a Row
Activate command and a read or write command.
SDRAM RAS Precharge Time
The precharge time is the number of cycles it takes for the RAS to
accumulate its charge before DRAM refresh. If insufficient time is
allowed, refresh may be incomplete and the DRAM may fail to
retain data. This field applies only if synchronous DRAM is
installed in the system.
SDRAM CAS Latency Time
When synchronous DRAM is installed, you can control the number
of CLKs between when the SDRAMs sample a read command and
when the contoller samples read data from the SDRAMs. Do not
reset this field from the default value specified by the system
designer.
60
MB-662 User Manual
SDRAM Precharge Control
When Enabled, all CPU cycles to SDRAM result in an All Banks
Precharge Command on the SDRAM interface.
DRAM Data Integrity Mode
Select Non-ECC or ECC (error-correcting code), according to the
type of installed DRAM.
System BIOS Cacheable
Selecting Enabled allows caching of the system BIOS ROM at
F0000h-FFFFFh, resulting in better system performance. However,
if any program writes to this memory area, a system error may
result.
Video BIOS Cacheable
Selecting Enabled allows caching of the video BIOS ROM at
C0000h to C7FFFh, resulting in better video performance. However, if any program writes to this memory area, a system error may
result.
Video RAM Cacheable
Selecting Enabled allows caching of the video memory (RAM) at
A0000h to AFFFFh, resulting in better video performance.
However, if any program writes to this memory area, a memory
access error may result.
8/16 Bit I/O Recovery Time
The I/O recovery mechanism adds bus clock cycles between PCIoriginated I/O cycles to the ISA bus. This delay takes place
because the PCI bus is so much faster than the ISA bus.
These two fields let you add recovery time (in bus clock cycles) for
16-bit and 8-bit I/O.
Chapter 3 Award BIOS Setup
61
Memory Hole at 15M-16M
You can reserve this area of system memory for ISA adapter ROM.
When this area is reserved, it cannot be cached. The user information of peripherals that need to use this area of system memory
usually discusses their memory requirements.
Passive Release
When Enabled, CPU to PCI bus accesses are allowed during
passive release. Otherwise, the arbiter only accepts another PCI
master access to local DRAM.
Delayed Transaction
The chipset has an embedded 32-bit posted write buffer to support
delay transactions cycles. Select Enabled to support compliance
with PCI specification version 2.1.
Auto Detect DIMM/PCI Clk
When the Auto Detect DIMM/PCI clk enable, the Utility will
automatically detect the DIMM/PCI clock in your system.
Spread Spectrum
When the system clock generator pulses, the extreme values of the
pulse generate excess EMI. Enabling pulse spectrum spread
modulation changes the extreme values from spikes to flat curves,
thus reducing EMI. This benefit may in some cases be outweighed
by problems with timing-critical devices, such as a clock-sensitive
SCSI device

Software Drivers
This chapter describes the operation and installation of the display
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.

Programming
the
Watchdog Timer
The mainboard is equipped with a
watchdog timer that resets the CPU or
generates an interrupt if processing
comes to a standstill for whatever reason.
This feature ensures system reliability in
industrial stand-alone and unmanned
environments.
Appendix A Programming the Watchdog Timer

Programming
the
watchdog
timer
How to program the WATCHDOG TIMER
1. To set the time-out interval of watchdog timer:
-- output the desired value to port 0x443. Since the data is of 1
byte, the maximum value will be 255. In our design 2 ~ 255 will
denote 2 ~ 255 sec.
outportb(0x443, 30 <HEX>); // set watchdog to 30 seconds
2. To set the time-out event:
-- output data to port 0x444,
Timeout =SEC.Q=1
WDRST=IRQSET=3 & TIMEOUT
IRQ15=IRQSET=2 & TIMEOUT
IRQ11=IRQSET=4 & TIMEOUT
IRQ10=IRQSET=5 & TIMEOUT
outportb(0x444, 3); // set time-out event to reset-system
3. To disable watchdog timer:
-- output value 0 to port 0x443
outportb(0x443, 0); // disable watchdog timer
4. To ebable or refresh watchdog timer(the watchdog timer will
return to its initial value, then count down):
-- access the I/O port 0x443, e.g.
106
MB-662 User Manual
outportb(0x443, data); // refresh watchdog timer
* note: if you want to refresh the watchdog timer, you have to
disable it first.

outportb(0x444, 3):
// set time-out event to reset-system
outportb(0x443x 10);
// set time-out interval to 10 seconds
customer_job();
// execute your job here, be sure your
job will finished within 10 seconds
outportb(0x443, 0);
// refresh watchdog timer, otherwise
the system will reset after time-out
outputb(0x443, 20);
// set time-out interval to 20 seconds
another_job();
// another job finished in 20 seconds
outportb(0x443, 0)
// disable watchdog timer
