Hardware
Configuration
This chapter provides background
information on the PCA-6185. It will
show you how to configure the card to
match your application and prepare it
for installation into your PC.
Chapter 1 Hardware Configuration
1.1 Introduction
The PCA-6185 Series all-in-one industrial grade single CPU card uses
Intel's high performance Pentium® 4 processor, together with the ServerWorks' GC-SL chipset. The card features two separate 64-bit PCI-X bus,
one for internal deviced and one for external add-on cards. The dual PCIX bus ensures the operation of internal devices not to be influenced by
external add-on cards.
The PCA-6185 supports Pentium 4 or Celeron CPU with 533 and 400
MHz front side bus. Based on the NetBurst™ microarchitecture, the
CPU is equipped with 512, 256 or 128 KB on-CPU full-speed cache
memory, providing higher performance than ever before. The 3 DIMM
memory sockets support up to 4 GB DDR200/266 registered SDRAM,
fullfiling the demand on computing performance of most applications.
The PCA-6185 Series features powerful on-board I/O functions such as
single or dual gigabit Ethernet ports and dual channel Ultra 320 SCSI
interface. This makes it an ideal choice for applications that require both
high performance and full functionality.
It has two EIDE interfaces (for up to four devices) and a floppy disk drive
interface (for up to two devices). Other features include two RS-232
serial ports (16C550 UARTs with 16-byte FIFO or compatible), one
enhanced parallel port (supports SPP/EPP/ECP) and four USB (Universal
Serial Bus) 1.1 ports. The PCI enhanced IDE controller supports ATA 33/
66/100 and PIO Mode 4 operation. This provides data transfer rates of up
to 100 MB/sec. System BIOS supports boot-up from an IDE CD-ROM,
SCSI CD-ROM, LS-120, IDE HDD, SCSI HDD, ZIP-100, USB, LAN,
and FDD.
A backup of CMOS data is stored in the Flash memory, which protects
data even after a battery failure. Also included is a 63-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 PCA-6185 to be managed
through Ethernet when it is connected to the SNMP-1000 Remote HTTP/
SNMP System Manager.
Note:
Some of the features mentioned above are not available with all models. For
more information about the specifications of a particular model, see Section
1.3 Specifications.
PCA-6185 User’s Manual
2
1.2 Features
1.
High performance PCI bus: The PCA-6185 provides three independent PCI buses: one 32-bit, 33 MHz PCI bus and two 64-bit
PCI-X buses. The 32-bit bus is used for on-board VGA controller.
One of the two high performance PCI-X bus is used for onboard
Gigabit Ethernet and SCSI controllers. The other PCI-X bus is
available for user's add-on cards through the edge connector. This
PCI-X bus is compatible with PCI bus and capable to operate at different speed: 32-bit/33 MHz, 32-bit/66MHz, 64-bit/33 MHz or 64bit/66 MHz.
2.
Fan status monitoring and alarm: To prevent system overheating
and damage, the CPU fan can be monitored for speed and failure.
The fan is set for its normal RPM range and alarm thresholds.
3.
Temperature monitoring and alarm: To prevent system overheating and damage, the CPU card supports processor thermal
sensing and auto-protection.
4.
Voltage monitoring and alarm: System voltage levels are monitored to ensure stable current flows to critical components. Voltage
specifications will become even more critical for processors of the
future. Thus monitoring will become ever more necessary to ensure
proper system configuration and management.
5.
ATX soft power switch: Through the BIOS, the power button can
be defined as the "Standby" (aka "Suspend" or "Sleep") button or as
the "Soft-Off" button (see Soft-off by PWR-BTN, Setion 3.7.8)
Regardless of the setting, pushing the power button for more than 4
seconds will enter the Soft-Off mode.
6.
Message LED: Chassis LEDs now act as information providers.
The way a particular LED illuminates indicates the stage the computer is in. A single glimpse provides useful information to the
user.
7.
CMOS RAM backup: When BIOS CMOS setup has been completed, data in the CMOS RAM is automatically backed up to the
Flash ROM. This is particularly useful in industrial environments
which may cause soft errors. Upon such an error occurring, BIOS
will check the data, and automatically restore the original data for
booting.

1.6 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 CPU card. 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 in a static-dissipative surface
or static-shielded bag when they are not in the
chassis.
1.7 Jumper Settings
This section provides instructions on how to configure your card by setting jumpers. It also includes the card's default settings and your options
for each jumper.
1.7.1 How to set jumpers
You configure your card to match the needs of your application by setting
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.
1.7.2 CMOS clear (J1)
The PCA-6185 CPU card 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
11
Chapter 1
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 System Memory
The top-left edge of the PCA-6185 contains three sockets for 184-pin
dual inline memory modules (DIMMs). All these sockets accept only 2.5
V registered DDR SDRAM. Registered DIMMs are available in capacities of 128, 256, 512, 1024 or 2048 MB. The sockets can be filled in any
combination with DIMMs of any size, with the limitation of the total
memory capacity of 4 GB.
1.8.1 Sample calculation: DIMM memory capacity
Suppose you install a 128 MB DIMM into your PCA-6185's socket 1 and
a 256 MB DIMM into sockets 2 and 3. Your total system memory is 640
MB, calculated as follows:
Table 1.6: DIMM memory capacity sample calculation

256 MB
256 MB
Total memory: 640 MB
1.8.2 Supplementary information about DIMMs
Your PCA-6185 can accept only registered DDR SDRAM memory modules. The register on the memory module secures reliable operation of
high memory capacity under high speed. Also note:
• Please use only DDR compliant registered DIMMS.
Most systems will not even boot if non-compliant modules are
used. This is due to strict timing issues involved at this speed.
• You can find two or three additional register ICs on a registered
SDRAM. These ICs are relatively smaller than the SDRAM ICs.
• Registered SDRAM are usually with ECC function. Modules with
9 or 18 SDRAM chips support ECC; modules with 8 or 16
SDRAM chips do not support ECC.
1.9 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
PCA-6185 User’s Manual
14
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.
1.10 Cache Memory
Since the second level (L2) cache has been embedded into the Intel®
Pentium® 4 processor, you do not have to take care of either SRAM chips
or SRAM modules. The built-in second level cache in the Pentium® 4
processor yields much higher performance than the external cache memories. The cache size in the Intel® Pentium® 4 processor is 256 or 512 KB,
depending on the type of CPU.
1.11 CPU Installation
The PCA-6185 provides socket 478 for an Intel® Pentium® 4 processor.
The CPU on the board must have a fan or heat sink attached, to prevent
overheating.
Warning!
Without a fan or heat sink, the CPU will overheat
and cause damage to both the CPU and the
motherboard.
To install a CPU, first turn off your system and remove its cover. Locate
the processor socket 478.
1.
Make sure the socket 478 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 with the CPU. If you have no instructions, complete the following procedure. Carefully align the CPU so it is parallel to the
socket and the notches on the corners of the CPU correspond with
the notches on the inside of the socket. Gently slide the CPU in. It
should insert easily. If it does not insert easily, pull the lever up a
little bit more.
15
Chapter 1
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 will not damage the CPU.

peripherals, switches, and indicators to
the PCA-6185 board.
Chapter 2 Connecting Peripherals
2.1 Primary (CN1) and Secondary (CN2) IDE Connectors
CN2
CN1
You can attach up to four IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics) drives to the
PCA-6185’s built-in controller. The primary (CN1) and secondary (CN2)
connectors 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 or CN2 on the CPU card. 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 per connector, you should
set each 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.
Connect the second hard drive to the remaining connector (CN2 or CN1),
in the same way as described above.

Award BIOS Setup
This chapter describes how to set the
card’s BIOS configuration data.
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 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
BIOS CMOS Setup has been completed, CMOS RAM data is automatically backed up to Flash ROM. If conditions in a harsh industrial enviroment cause a soft error, BIOS will recheck the data and automatically
restore the original data 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.

SCSI Setup
The PCA-6185 features an onboard
SCSI interface. This chapter provides
basic SCSI concepts and instructions
for installing the software drivers with
the SCSI driver disks CD included in
your package.
Chapter 7 SCSI Setup
7.1 Introduction
The PCA-6185 is equipped with an Adaptec AIC-7902 single-chip PCIto-SCSI host adapter which provides a dual channel Ultra 320 multitasking interface between your computer’s PCI bus and SCSI devices (disk
drives, CD-ROM drives, scanners, tape backups, removable media
drives, etc.). Ultra 320 is a new generation of SCSI technology that
expands SCSI performance from 80 MBytes/sec to 320 MBytes/sec. Up
to a total of 15 SCSI devices can be connected to each of the SCSI connectors.
The AIC-7902 combines this Ultra 320 SCSI technology with Adaptec’s
SpeedFlex™ technology. SpeedFlex allows the Adaptec SCSI card to be
backwards compatible with previous generations of SCSI products, while
allowing newer Ultra 320 SCSI devices to operate at the higher 320
MBytes/sec rate.
If you need to configure the SCSI, the onboard SCSI Select configuration
utility allows you to change host adapter settings without opening the
computer or handling the board. The SCSI Select utility also contains a
utility to low-level format and verifies the disk media on your hard disk
drives.
Note:
If any peripheral is running at SE mode, the Ultra 320
SCSI segment will run at speeds up to 40 MBytes/
sec only instead of 320 MBytes/sec.
7.2 Understanding SCSI
SCSI (pronounced “scuzzy”) stands for Small Computer Systems Interface. SCSI is an industry standard computer interface for connecting
SCSI devices to a common SCSI bus.
A SCSI bus is an electrical pathway that consists of a SCSI interface
installed in a computer and one or more SCSI devices. SCSI cables are
used to connect the devices to the SCSI interface. For the SCSI bus to
function properly, a unique SCSI ID must be assigned to the SCSI interface and each SCSI device connected to it, and the SCSI bus must be
properly terminated.
PCA-6185 User’s Manual
68
7.3 SCSI IDs
Each device attached to the SCSI bus, as well as the SCSI controller
itself, must be assigned a unique SCSI ID number from 0 to 15. A SCSI
ID uniquely identifies each SCSI device on the SCSI bus and determines
priority when two or more devices are trying to use the SCSI bus at the
same time.
Refer o the device’s documentation to set the SCSI ID. Here are some
general guidelines for SCSI IDs:
•
For internal SCSI devices, the SCSI ID usually is set by configuring a jumper on the device.
•
For external SCSI devices, the SCSI ID usually is set with a swetch
on the back of the device.
•
SCSI ID numbers don’t have to sequential, as long as the SCSI controller and each device has a different number.
•
For example, you can have an internal SCSI device with ID 0, and
an external SCSI device with ID 6.
•
SCSI ID 7 has the highest priority on the SCSI bus. The priority of
the remianing IDs, in descending order, is 6 to 0, then 15 to 8.
•
The on-boards SCSI interface is preset to SCSI ID 7 and should not
be changed. This gives it the highest priority on the SCSI bus.
•
Most internal SCSI hard disk drives come from the factory pre-set
to SCSI ID 0.
•
If you have 8-bit (or Narrow) SCSI deveices, they must use SCSI
IDs 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6. SCSI ID 0 is recommended for the first SCSI
hard disk drive.
•
If you are booting your computer from a SCSI hards disk drive connected to the SCSI bus, the Boot SCSI ID setting in the
SCSISelect utility must correspond to the SCSI ID of the deveice
from which you are booting. By default, the Boot SCSI ID is set to 0. We
recommend that you do not change this setting.
•
In Windows© 95/98, you can use the Device Manager to determine
which SCSI ID is assigned to each installed SCSI device.
69
Chapter 7
7.4 Terminating the SCSI bus
To ensure reliable communication on the SCSI bus, the ends of the SCSI
bus must be properly terminated. This is accomplished when the device at
the end of the each cable, or the end of the cable itself, has a terminator
installed (or enabled). Terminators must be removed, or termination must
be disabled, on devices between the ends of each cable.
Since the method for terminating a SCSI device can vary widely, refer to
the device’s documentation for instructions on how to enable or disable
termination. Here are some general guidelines for termination:
• Internal Ultra 320 and Ultra 2 SCSI devices come from the factory with
termination disabled and cannot be changed. Proper termination for
internal Ultra 320 and Ultra2 SCSI devices is provided by a 68-pin
Internal LVD (low voltage differential) SCSI cable, which has a builtin terminator at its end.
• Termination on non-Ultra 320 and Ultra2 internal SCSI devices usually
is controlled by manually setting a jumper or a switch on the device, or
by physically removing or installing one or more resistor modules on
the device.
• Termination on most external SCSI devices is controlled by installing
or removing a SCSI terminator. However, termination on some external SCSI devices is enable or disabled by setting a swetich on the back
of the SCSI device.
• The last external Ultra 320 or Ultra2 SCSI device must be terminated
with an LVD/SE (low voltage differential/single ended) terminator
plug to ensure that the device will operate at its maximum speed. If you
use a different kind of terminator plug, the data I/O rate will decrease.
By default, termination on the SCSI controller itself is set to Automatic
(the preferred method). We recommend that you do not change this
default setting.
7.5 Configuring the SCSI interface with SCSISelect
SCSISelect, included with the CPU card, enables you to change SCSI settings without opening the computer. SCSISelect also enables you to lowlevel format or verify the disk media of your SCSI hard disk drives. The
following table lists the available and default settings for each SCSISelect
option.

Chapter 7
• Initiate Wide Negotiation-(Default: Yes) When set to Yes, the SCSI
card attempts 16-bit data transfer (wide negotiation.) When set to No, the
SCSI card uses 8-bit data transfer unless the SCSI device requests wide
negotiation.
Note:
Set Initiate Wide Negotiation to NO if you are using
an 8-bit SCSI device that hangs or exhibits other performance problems with 16-bit data transfer rate
enabled.
• Enable Disconnection-(Default: Yes) When set to Yes, allows the
SCSI device to disconnect from the SCSI bus. Leave the setting at Yes if
two or more SCSI device is connected, changing the setting to No results
in slightly better performance.
• Send Start Unit Command-(Default: Yes) When set to Yes, the Start
Unit Command is sent to the SCSI device at bootup.
The following three options have no effect if the SCSI Card BIOS is disabled. (The SCSI Cards BIOS is normally enabled by default.)
• Enable Write Back Cache-(Default: N/C) Can be used to enable or
disable the write-back cache on SCSI disk drives connected to the host
adapter. Leave this option at its default setting of N/C (no change), which
usually allow for optimum drive performance.
• BIOS Multiple LUN Support-(Default: No) Leave this setting at No if
the device does not have multiple Logical Unit Numbers (LUNs.) When
set to Yes, the SCSI card BIOS provides boot support for a SCSI device
with multiple LUNs (for example, a CD “juke box” device in which
mulitple CDs can be accessed simultaneously.)
• Include in BIOS Scan-(Default: Yes) When set to Yes, the SCSI card
BIOS includes the device as part of its BIOS scan at bootup.
Advanced Configuration Options

necessary only for MS-DOS 5.0 or above; it is not required for other
operating systems, such as NetWare of UNIX.
Caution: Changing the translation scheme destroys all data on
the drive. Bue sure to back your disk drives before
changing the translation scheme.
Use the MS-DOS Fdisk command to partition a disk laster than 1GByte
controlled by the SCSI card BIOS, when using DOS, Windows 3.1.x, ro
Windows 95/98.
• Verbose/Silent Mode-(Default: Verbose) When set to Verbose, the
SCSI card BIOS displays the host adapter model on the screen during
sustem buildup. When set to Silent, the message is not displayed during
bootup.
• Host Adapter BIOS (Configuration Utility Reserves BIOS Space)(Default: Enabled) Enables or disables the SCSI card
• Leave at Enabled to allow the SCSI card BIOS to scan and initialize all SCSI devices.
• Set to Disabled: Not scan if the devices on the SCSI bus (for
example, CD-ROM drives) are controlled by software drivers and do not
need the BIOS, and you do not want the BIOS to scan the SCSI bus.
• Set to Disabled: Scan Bus if you do not need the BIOS, but you
want it to scan the SCSI devices on the bus and you need to spin up the
devices.
The following four options have no effect when the SCSI Card BIOS is
disabled. (The SCSI Card BIOS is normally enabled by default.)
• Domain Validation—(Default: Enabled) Determines the optimal transfer rate for each device on the SCSI bus and sets transfer rates accordingly. Displays the resulting data transfer rate.

Chapter 7
• Support Removable Disks Under BIOS as Fixed Disks—(Default:
Disabled) Determines which removable-media drives are supported by
the SCSI card BIOS. Choices are as follows:
• Disabled— No removable-media drives are treated as hard disk
drives. Software drivers are required because the drives are not
controlled by the BIOS.
• Boot Only—Only the removable-media drive designated as the
boot device is treated as a hard disk drive.
• All Disks—All removable-media drives supported by the BIOS
are treated as hard disk drives.
Caution: You may lose data if you remove a removable-media
cartridge from a SCSI drive controlled by the SCSI
card BIOS while the drive is on. If you want to be
able to remove the media while the drive is on, install
the removable-media software driver and set Support Removable Disks Under BIOS as Fixed Disks to
Disabled.
• BIOS Support for Bootable CD-ROMs—(Default: Enabled) When
set to Enabled, the SCSI card BIOS allows the computer to boot from a
CD-ROM drive.
• BIOS Support for Int 13 Extensions—(Default: Enabled) When set to
Enabled, the SCSI card BIOS supports Int 13h extensions as required by
Plug-and-Play. The setting can be either enabled or disabled if your system is not Plug-and-Play.

7.8 Using SCSI Disk Utilities
To access the SCSI disk utilities, follow these steps:
1.
Select the SCSI Disk Utilities option from the menu that appears
after starting SCSISelect. SCSISelect scans the SCSI bus (to determine the devices installed) and displays a list of all SCSI IDs and
the devices assigned to each ID.
2.
Use the arrow keys to move the cursor to a specific ID and device,
then press Enter.
3.
A small menu appears, displaying the options Format Disk and Verify Disk Media.
• Format Disk—Allows you to perform a low-level format on a hard
disk drive. Most SCSI disk devices are preformatted at the factory and do
not need to be formatted again.
Caution: A low-level format destroys all data on the drive. Be
sure to back up your data before performing this
operation. You cannot abort a low-level format once it
is started.
• Verify Disk Media—Allows you to scan the media of a hard disk drive
for defects. If the utility finds bad blocks on the media, it prompts you to
reassign them; if you select yes, those blocks are no longer used. Pressing
Esc at any time aborts the utility.
7.9 Installation under Windows NT/Windows 2000
If you are only using SCSI hard drives without any IDE HDD drive
installed, please follow these steps:
1.
Insert Windows NT/Windows 2000 CD Disk.
2.
Press F6 immediately when it displays: “Set up is inspecting your
computer’s hardware configuration.”
3.
Then it enter SCSI installation. Please insert SCSI driver floppy
disk.

Programming the
Watchdog Timer
The PPC-123 is equipped with a watchdog timer that resets the CPU or generates an interrupt if processing comes to
a standstill for any reason. This feature
ensures system reliability in industrial
standalone or unmanned environments.
Appendix A Programming the Watchdog
Timer
A.1 Programming the Watchdog Timer
To program the watchdog timer, you must write a program which writes I/
O port address 444 (hex). The output data is a time interval value. The
value range is from 01 (hex) to 3E (hex), and the related time interval is
from 1 sec. to 62 sec.
Data Time Interval

02
2 sec.
03
3 sec.
04
4 sec.
•
•
•
•
•
•
3E
62 sec.
After data entry, your program must refresh the watchdog timer by rewriting the I/O port 444 (hex) while simultaneously setting it. When you want
to disable the watchdog timer, your program should read I/O port 43
(hex).
PCA-6185 User’s Manual

The following example shows how you might program the watchdog
timer in BASIC:
