Introduction
Chapter 1 <Introduction>
1.1 <Product Overview>
FS-979 is the Full-size single board computer with last Intel desktop technology with
PICMG form factor. Based on Intel® 915GV and ICH6R, the board integrates a new
Pentium 4 processor 775-pin socket, DDR2 memory socket, and Intel® Graphic Media
Accelerator 900 technology, LAN, AC97 audio, USB2.0 and Serial ATA with RAID function
for a powerful rack-mount/wall-mount system.
Intel® LGA775 processor
The Intel® Pentium 4 processor now comes with a new form factor with 775-pin PLGA
package, for 800MHz front-side-bus, 1MB L2 cache, and for 90nm manufacturing
technology, the PLGA processor without pin header on solder side can make user installing
the processor on the socket easier.
Intel® 915GV and ICH6R chipset
The Intel® 915GV integrates DDR2 400/533MHz for memory, and Graphic Media
Accelerator (GMA) 900 technology for new graphic engine. It can provide up to 224MB of
frame buffer when you install over 256MB of system memory. The ICH6R integrates with up
to 8 USB2.0 interfaces (4 ports for FS-979), and serial ATA interface with RAID function.
Dual Display Supported
Based on Intel® 915G GMA900 technology, the board supports dual display function with
CRT and DVI display interfaces. You can take this advantage for gaming, security
monitoring or other demonstration applications.
Multimedia interfaces
FS-979 also integrates AC97 audio, Compact Flash and DVI interface, for these flexible
functions, system integrator can built more powerful systems for many field applications.
Max up to 3 Gigabit Intel® LAN
With up to 3 PCI-Express 1x with Marvell Gigabit LAN controllers, the board comes with the
powerful network function for Server or Workstation.

3.2 <SATA RAID Configuration>
The board integrates Intel® ICH6R with RAID function for Serial ATA drives, and supports
the configurations below:
RAID 0 (Stripping): Two hard drives operating as one drive for optimized data R/W
performance. It needs two unused drives to build this operation.
RAID 1 (Mirroring): Copies the data from first drive to second drive for data security, and if
one drive fails, the system would access the applications to the workable drive. It needs two
unused drives or one used and one unused drive to build this operation. The second drive
must be the same or lager size than first one.
Intel Matrix Storage Technology: This technology would allow you to use RAID 0+1 mode
on only two drives (4 drives needed on traditional RAID 0+1). It will create two partitions on
each hard drive to simulate RAID 0 and RAID 1. It also can let you modify the partition size
without re-formatted.
For more information of Intel Matrix Storage Technology, please visit Intel’s website.
If you need to install an operation system on the RAID set, please use the driver disk
attached in the package when it informs you to obtain the RAID drivers.
Please press <CTRL+I> to enter the RAID configuration menu.

Based on Intel® 915G chipset with GMA (Graphic Media Accelerator) 900, the board
supports Intel® DVMT (Dynamic Video Memory Technology) 3.0, which would allow the
video memory be triggered up to 224MB.
To support DVMT, you need to install the Intel GMA 900 Driver with supported OS.
BIOS Setup:
On-Chip Video Memory Size: This option combines three items below for setup.
On-Chip Frame Buffer Size:
This item can let you select video memory which been allocated for legacy VGA and SVGA
graphics support and compatibility. The available option is 1MB and 8MB.
Fixed Memory Size:
This item can let you select a static amount of page-locked graphics memory which will be
allocated during driver initialization. Once you select the memory amount, it will be no
longer available for system memory.
DVMT Memory Size:
This item can let you select a maximum size of dynamic amount usage of video memory,
the system would configure the video memory depends on your application, this item is
strongly recommend to be selected as MAX DVMT.
