CHAPTER 1
Specifications
The ultra-compact and highly integrated VIA EPIA-NX Nano-ITX
mainboard is the smallest form-factor available today. Through a
high level of integration, the Nano-ITX measures at only 50% of
the size of a Mini-ITX mainboard. The mainboard enables the
creation of an exciting new generation of small, ergonomic,
innovative and affordable embedded systems.

CHAPTER 2
Installation
This chapter provides you with information about hardware
installation procedures. It is recommended to use a grounded wrist
strap before handling computer components. Electrostatic discharge
(ESD) can damage some components.

Chapter 2
CPU
The VIA EPIA-NX Nano-ITX mainboard can support VIA C7 NanoBGA2 and
VIA Eden NanoBGA2 processors. The processor requires a heatsink with fan
for 1.5GHz SKU and a fanless heatsink for 1.2GHz SKU.
CPU Fan and System Fan: CPU_FAN and SYS_FAN
The CPU_FAN (CPU fan) and SYS_FAN (system fan) run on +12V and
maintain system cooling. When connecting the wire to the connectors,
always be aware that the red wire (positive wire) should be connected to
+12V. The black wire is Ground and should always be connected to GND.

CONNECTING THE POWER SUPPLY
The VIA EPIA-NX Nano-ITX mainboard supports a Nano-ITX power supply for
the power system.
Before inserting the power supply connector, always
make sure that all components are installed correctly to ensure that no
damage will be caused.
Nano-ITX 12-Pin Power Connector
To connect the power supply, make sure the power plug is inserted in the
proper orientation and the pins are aligned. Then push down the plug firmly
into the connector.

IDE Connector: IDE
The mainboard has an Ultra DMA 133/100 controller. You can connect up to
two IDE devices in any combination.
If two drives are connected to a single cable, the jumper on the second drive
must be set to slave mode. Refer to the drive documentation supplied by the
vendor for the jumper settings.

The reset switch is used to reboot the system rather than turning the power
ON/OFF. Avoid rebooting the system, if the HDD is still working. Connect
the reset switch from the system case to this pin.
Power LED (PWR_LED)
The LED will light when the system is on. If the system is in S1 (POS - Power
On Suspend) or S3 (STR - Suspend To RAM) state, the LED will blink.
HDD LED (HD_LED)
HDD LED shows the activity of a hard disk drive. Avoid turning the power off
when the HDD LED still has a lit. Connect the HDD LED from the system case
to this pin.

Serial ATA Connectors: SATA1 and SATA2
These next generation connectors support the thin Serial ATA
cables for primary internal storage devices. The current Serial ATA
interface allows up to 150MB/s data transfer rate, faster than the
standard parallel ATA with 133 MB/s (Ultra DMA).
USB Pin Connector: USB
The mainboard provides 1 USB pin connector that allows up to 6 USB 2.0

JUMPERS
The mainboard provides jumpers for setting some mainboard functions. This
section will explain how to change the settings of the mainboard functions
using the jumpers.
Clear CMOS: CLEAR_CMOS
The onboard CMOS RAM stores system configuration data and has an
onboard battery power supply. To reset the CMOS settings, set the jumper
on pins 2 and 3 while the system is off. Return the jumper to pins 1 and 2
afterwards. Setting the jumper while the system is on will damage the
mainboard.

will cause system boot failure.
Removing the cap
Avoid clearing the CMOS while the
system is on; it will damage the mainboard.

SLOTS
Mini Peripheral Component Interconnect: MINIPCI
The miniPCI slot allows you to insert a miniPCI expansion card. First unplug
the power supply before adding or removing expansion cards.
Read the
documentation for the expansion card to see if any changes to the system are
necessary.
PCI Interrupt Request Routing
The IRQ (interrupt request line) are hardware lines over which devices can
send interrupt signals to the microprocessor. The “PCI & LAN” IRQ pins are
typically connected to the PCI bus INT A# ~ INT D# pins as follows:
miniPCI Slot
Order 1

Description
S1(POS)
S1/Power On Suspend (POS) is a low power state. In this state,
no system context (CPU or chipset) is lost and hardware
maintains all system contexts.
S3/Suspend To RAM (STR) is a power-down state. In this state,
power is supplied only to essential components such as main
memory and wakeup-capable devices. The system context is
saved to main memory, and context is restored from the
memory when a "wakeup" event occurs.
Depends on the OS to select S1 or S3.

Change / Set / Disable Password
This option is for setting a password for entering BIOS Setup.
When a
password has been set, a password prompt will be displayed whenever BIOS
Setup is run. This prevents an unauthorized person from changing any part
of your system configuration.
There are two types of passwords you can set. A supervisor password and a
user password.
When a supervisor password is used, the BIOS Setup
program can be accessed and the BIOS settings can be changed. When a
user password is used, the BIOS Setup program can be accessed but the
BIOS settings cannot be changed.
To set the password, type the password (up to eight characters in length)
and press <Enter>. The password typed now will clear any previously set
password from CMOS memory. The new password will need to be reentered
to be confirmed. To cancel the process press <Esc>.
To disable the password, press <Enter> when prompted to enter a new
password. A message will show up to confirm disabling the password. To
cancel the process press <Esc>.
58
BIOS Setup
Additionally, when a password is enabled, the BIOS can be set to request the
password each time the system is booted. This would prevent unauthorized
use of the system. See “Security Option” in the “Advanced BIOS Features”
section for more details.

Driver Installation
This chapter gives you brief descriptions of each mainboard driver and
application. You must install the VIA chipset drivers first before
installing other drivers such as audio or VGA drivers. The applications
will only function correctly if the necessary drivers are already
installed.
63
Chapter 4
DRIVER UTILITIES
Getting Started
The mainboard includes a Driver Utilities CD that contains the driver utilities
and software for enhancing the performance of the mainboard. If the CD is
missing from the retail box, please contact the local dealer for the CD.
Note: The driver utilities and software are updated from time to time. The latest
updated versions are available at http://www.viaembedded.com./
64
Driver Installation
Running the Driver Utilities CD
To start using the CD, insert the CD into the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.
The CD should run automatically after closing the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.
The driver utilities and software menu screen should then appear on the
screen. If the CD does not run automatically, click on the “Start” button and
select “Run…” Then type: "D:\Setup.exe".
NOTE: D: might not be the drive letter of the CD-ROM/DVD-ROM in
your system.
