result
in
permanent
damage
to
the
WAFER-945GSE and severe injury to the user.
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can cause serious damage to electronic components,
including the WAFER-945GSE. Dry climates are especially susceptible to ESD. It is
therefore critical that whenever the WAFER-945GSE, 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 WAFER-945GSE, place it on
an antic-static pad. This reduces the possibility of ESD damaging the
WAFER-945GSE.
Only handle the edges of the PCB:- When handling the PCB, hold the PCB
by the edges.

5.6.1 Airflow
WARNING:
Airflow is critical to the cooling of the CPU and other onboard
components. The chassis in which the WAFER-945GSE must have air
vents to allow cool air to move into the system and hot air to move out.
The WAFER-945GSE must be installed in a chassis with ventilation holes on the sides
allowing airflow to travel through the heat sink surface. In a system with an individual
power supply unit, the cooling fan of a power supply can also help generate airflow
through the board surface.

C.1 DIO Interface Introduction
The DIO connector on the WAFER-945GSE is interfaced to GPIO ports on the ITE
IT8718F Super I/O chipset. The DIO has both 4-bit digital inputs and 4-bit digital outputs.
The digital inputs and digital outputs are generally control signals that control the on/off
circuit of external devices or TTL devices. Data can be read or written to the selected
address to enable the DIO functions.
NOTE:
For further information, please refer to the datasheet for the ITE
IT8718F Super I/O chipset.

Page 172
WAFER-945GSE 3.5” Motherboard
NOTE:
The following discussion applies to DOS environment. IEI support is
contacted or the IEI website visited for specific drivers for more
sophisticated operating systems, e.g., Windows and Linux.
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.
