Chapter 1 Hardware Configuration
1.1 Introduction
Advantech's AIMB-560 is designed with the Intel 915GV and ICH6 PCI
Express chipset in an ATX form factor. Not only does it boast commercial PC performance but it also has industrial features such as reliability,
longevity, revision control and scalability. This product is ideal for customers who are using off-the-shelf commercial motherboards but need
industrial features. Designed with standardization and compatibility in
mind, the AIMB-560 can be installed in a variety of Advantech industrial
chassis or normal commercial chassis for various applications.
With the Intel 915GV and ICH6 chipset architecture, AIMB-560 has an
800 MHz front-side bus, supporting Intel Pentium 4 / Celeron D CPUs up
to 3.8/3.06 GHz and uses up to 2 GB of dual-channel 400/533 MHz
DDRII SDRAM. The integrated VGA controller dynamically shares system memory up to 128 MB, providing a low-cost but high-performance
graphic function. With a south-bridge north-bridge channel Direct Media
Interface (DMI) which provides a data rate up to 2 GB/s, AIMB-560
eliminates the bottleneck between the chipsets and can be equipped with
high-performance network connection ports and I/O functions. The dual/
single Gigabit LAN port(s) and PCI-Express x1 bus which have a data
throughput of up to 500 MB/s make AIMB-560 suitable for intense
industrial network applications. There are 2 PCI-Express x1 slots (one for
the riser card) and 5 32-bit/33MHz PCI slots on the AIMB-560, providing
good expansion capability. The 4 on-board SATA connectors not only
provide a faster data transmission rate of up to 150 MB/s but also higher
read/write efficiency by supporting Advanced Host Controller Interface
(AHCI) technology. The thin, long SATA cable also ease cabling and
thermal design inside the chassis. The 8 USB ports (4 rear I/O ports, 4 onboard headers) provide flexibility and convenience when using USB
devices.
A backup of CMOS data is stored in the Flash memory, which protects
BIOS setup data even after a battery failure. Also included is a 255-level
watchdog timer, which resets the CPU or generates an interrupt if a program cannot be executed normally. This enables reliable operation in
unattended environments.
The remote management interface enables the AIMB-560 to be managed
through Ethernet when it is connected to the SNMP-1000 Remote HTTP/
SNMP System Manager.

1.7 Safety Precautions
Warning!
Always completely disconnect the power cord
from your chassis whenever you work with the
hardware. Do not make connections while the
power is on. Sensitive electronic components
can be damaged by sudden power surges. Only
experienced electronics personnel should open
the PC chassis.
Caution!
Always ground yourself to remove any static
charge before touching the motherboard. Modern electronic devices are very sensitive to
static electric charges. As a safety precaution,
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.
Caution!
The computer is provided with a battery-powered Real-time Clock circuit. There is a danger
of explosion if battery is incorrectly replaced.
Replace only with same or equivalent type recommended by the manufacturer. Discard used
batteries according to manufacturer's instructions.
Caution!
There is a danger of a new battery exploding if
it is incorrectly installed. Do not attempt to
recharge, force open, or heat the battery.
Replace the battery only with the same or
equivalent type recommended by the manufacturer. Discard used batteries according to the
manufacturer’s instructions.

1.8 Jumper Settings
This section provides instructions on how to configure your motherboard
by setting the jumpers. It also includes the motherboards's default settings
and your options for each jumper.
1.8.1 How to set jumpers
You can configure your motherboard to match the needs of your application by setting the jumpers. A jumper is a metal bridge that closes an electrical 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” (or turn ON) a jumper, you connect the pins with the clip. To
“open” (or turn OFF) a jumper, you remove the clip. Sometimes a jumper
consists of a set of three pins, labeled 1, 2, and 3. In this case you connect
either pins 1 and 2, or 2 and 3. A pair of needle-nose pliers may be useful
when setting jumpers.
1.8.2 CMOS clear (J1)
The AIMB-560 motherboard contains a jumper that can erase CMOS
data and reset the system BIOS information. Normally this jumper should
be set with pins 1-2 closed. If you want to reset the CMOS data, set J1 to
2-3 closed for just a few seconds, and then move the jumper back to 1-2
closed. This procedure will reset the CMOS to its default setting.

1.8.3 Watchdog timer output (J2)
The AIMB-560 contains a watchdog timer that will reset the CPU or send
a signal to IRQ11 in the event the CPU stops processing. This feature
means the AIMB-560 will recover from a software failure or an EMI
problem. The J2 jumper settings control the outcome of what the computer will do in the event the watchdog timer is tripped.

1.9 System Memory
The AIMB-560 has four sockets for 240-pin dual inline memory modules
(DIMMs) in two memory channels.
All these sockets use 1.8 V unbuffered double data rate synchronous
DRAMs (DDR SDRAM). They are available in capacities of 256, 512
and 1024 MB. The sockets can be filled in any combination with DIMMs
of any size, giving a total memory size between 256 MB and 2 GB.
1.9.1 CPU FSB and memory speed
The AIMB-560 can accept DDR2 SDRAM memory chips without parity.
Also note: The AIMB-560 accepts DDR2 400MHz SDRAM, and DDR2
533 MHz SDRAM. The AIMB-560 does NOT support ECC (error checking and correction).
1.10 Memory Installation Procedures
To install DIMMs, first make sure the two handles of the DIMM socket
are in the “open” position. i.e. The handles lean 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. To remove the
memory module, just push both handles outward, and the memory module will be ejected by the mechanism in the socket.
1.11 Cache Memory
Since the second-level (L2) cache has been embedded into the Intel®
LGA-775-socket Pentium® 4 / Celeron® D processor. The built-in second-level cache in the processor yields much higher performance than the
external cache memories. The cache size in the Intel® Pentium® 4 processor is 1024/2048 KB. In the Celeron D CPU, the cache size is 256/512
KB.

Chapter 2 Connecting Peripherals
2.1 Introduction
You can access most of the connectors from the top of the board while it
is installed in the chassis. If you have a number of cards installed or have
a packed chassis, you may need to partially remove the card to make all
the connections.
2.2 Primary (CN1) IDE Connector
You can attach up to four IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics) drives to the
AIMB-560’s built-in controller. The primary (CN1) connector can each
accommodate two drives.
Wire number 1 on the cable is red or blue and the other wires are gray.
Connect one end to connector CN1 on the motherboard. Make sure that
the red/blue wire corresponds to pin 1 on the connector (in the upper right
hand corner). See Chapter 1 for help finding the connector.
Unlike floppy drives, IDE hard drives can connect in either position on
the cable. If you install two drives to a single connector, you will need to
set one as the master and the other as the slave. You do this by setting the
jumpers on the drives. If you use just one drive on the connector, you
should set the drive as the master. See the documentation that came with
your drive for more information.
Connect the first hard drive to the other end of the cable. Wire 1 on the
cable should also connect to pin 1 on the hard drive connector, which is
labeled on the drive circuit board. Check the documentation that came
with the drive for more information.

Chapter 3 Award BIOS Setup
3.1 Introduction
Award’s BIOS ROM has a built-in setup program that allows users to
modify the basic system configuration. This type of information is stored
in battery backed-up memory (CMOS RAM) so that it retains the setup
information when the power is turned off.
3.1.1 CMOS RAM Auto-backup and Restore
The CMOS RAM is powered by an onboard button cell battery. When
you finish BIOS setup, the data in CMOS RAM will be automatically
backed up to Flash ROM. If operation in harsh industrial environments
causes a soft error, BIOS will recheck the data in CMOS RAM and automatically restore the original data in Flash ROM to CMOS RAM for
booting.
Note:
If you intend to change the CMOS setting without restoring the previous backup, you have to
click on “DEL” within two seconds of the
“CMOS checksum error...” display screen message appearing. Then enter the “Setup” screen
to modify the data. If the “CMOS checksum
error...” message appears again and again,
please check to see if you need to replace the
battery in your system.

Appendix A
Appendix A Watchdog Timer
A.1 Programming the Watchdog Timer
The AIMB-560'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 in to the super I/O controller W83627HF. It
provides the following functions for user programming:
• Can be enabled and disabled by user's 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 Reset/Interrupt selection
The J2 jumper is used to select reset or interrupt (IRQ 11) in the event the
watchdog timer is tripped. See Chapter 1 for detailed jumper settings.
Note:
The interrupt output of the watchdog timer is a
low level signal. It will be held low until the
watchdog timer is reset.
A.1.3 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).

value to this register can reset the
timer to count with the new value.
