2.5 Setting Jumpers
You may configure your card to match the needs of your application by
setting jumpers. A jumper is a metal bridge used to close an electric 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” a
jumper, you connect the pins with the clip. To “open” a jumper, you
remove the clip. Sometimes a jumper will have three pins, labeled 1, 2
and 3. In this case you would connect either pins 1 and 2, or 2 and 3.
open
closed
closed 2-3
The jumper settings are schematically depicted in this manual as follows:.
open
closed
closed 2-3
A pair of needle-nose pliers may be helpful when working with jumpers.
If you have any doubts about the best hardware configuration for your
application, contact your local distributor or sales representative before
you make any changes.
Generally, you simply need a standard cable to make most connections.

2.6 Clear CMOS (J1)
Warning!
To avoid damaging the computer, always turn
off the power supply before setting “Clear
CMOS.” Before turning on the power supply,
set the jumper back to “3.0 V Battery On.”
This jumper is used to erase CMOS data and reset system BIOS information.
The procedure for clearing CMOS is:
1.
Turn off the system.
2.
Short pin 2 and pin 3.
3.
Return jumper to pins 1 and 2.
4.
Turn on the system. The BIOS is now reset to its default setting

2.8 Watchdog timer configuration
An on-board watchdog timer reduces the chance of disruptions which
EMP (electro-magnetic pulse) interference can cause. This is an invaluable protective device for standalone or unmanned applications. Setup
involves one jumper and running the control software (refer to Appendix
A).
2.8.1 Watchdog timer output option (J2)
When the watchdog timer activates (CPU processing has come to a halt),
it can reset the system or generate an interrupt on IRQ11. This can be set
via setting J2 as shown below:

2.9 Installing DIMMs
The procedure for installing DIMMs is described below. Please follow
these steps carefully. The number of pins are different on either side of
the breaks, so the module can only fit in one way. DIMM modules have
different pin contacts on each side, and therefore have a higher pin density.
1.
Make sure that the two handles of the DIMM socket are in the
“open” position. i.e. The handles remain leaning outward.
2.
Slowly slide the DIMM module along the plastic guides on both
ends of the socket.
3.
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 socket.
To remove the memory module, just push both handles outward, and the
module will be ejected from the socket.

2.13 Floppy drive connector (CN3)
You can attach one 3.5" floppy drive to the the PCI-6872's onboard controller. This is useful for notebooks, for example.
A daisy-chain drive cable converter (part no. 9681000044) is required for
a single floppy system. A 34-pin flat-cable connector is fitted on one end
of the cable converter, while the other end has one floppy disk drive connector. It consists of a 34-pin flat-cable connector (for the 3.5" drives).
2.13.1 Connecting the floppy drive
1. Plug the 34-pin flat-cable connector into the cable converter. Make
sure that the red wire corresponds to pin 1 on the connector.
2. Attach the appropriate conector at the other end of the cable to the
floppy drive(s). You can use only one connector in the set. The set at the
other end (after the twist in the cable) connects to the A: drive.
When connecting a 3.5" floppy drive, you may have some difficulties in
determining which pin is number one. Look for a number on the circuit
board indicating pin number one. In addition, you should check if the
connector on the floppy drive has an extra slot. If the slot is up pin number one should be on the right. Please refer to any documentation that
came with the drive for more information.
If your cable needs to be custom made, you can find the pin assignments
for the board's connector in Appendix C.

Chapter 3 Software Configuration
3.1 Introduction
The system BIOS and custom drivers are located in a
256 KB, 32-pin (JEDEC spec.) Flash ROM device, designated U10. A
single Flash chip holds the system BIOS, VGA BIOS, and network Boot
ROM image. The display can be configured via software. This method
minimizes the number of chips and eases configuration. You can change
the display BIOS simply by reprogramming the Flash chip.
3.2 VGA display firmware configuration
The board’s on-board VGA interface supports a wide range of popular
LCD, EL, gas plasma flat panel displays and traditional analog CRT monitors. The optimized shared memory architecture supports an 8/16/32 MB
frame buffer using system memory to provide resolutions of 1280 x 1024
@ 16 bpp, the interface can drive CRT displays with resolutions up to
1024 x 768 @ 16 bpp and 800 x 600 @ 16 bpp.
The VGA interface is configured completely via the software utility, so
you do not have to set any jumpers. Configure the VGA display as follows:
1.
Apply power to the board with a color TFT display attached. This
is the default setting for this board. Ensure that the AWDFLASH.EXE and *.BIN files are located in the working drive.
NOTE:
Ensure that you do not run AWDFLASH.EXE
while your system is operating in EMM386
mode.

Windows 98/2000/NT
• Further information
Chapter 6 PCI Bus Ethernet Interface
6.1 Introduction
The board is equipped with a high performance 32-bit Ethernet chipset
which is fully compliant with 802.3u 100BASE-T \Fast Ethernet CSMA/
CD standards (F version) and compliant IEEE 802.3z/ab 1000BAS-T
Gigabit Ethernet(FG version). It is supported by major network operating
systems. It is also both 100Base-T and 10Base-T compatible.
The Ethernet port provides a standard RJ-45 jack. The network boot feature can be utilized by incorporating the boot ROM image files for the
appropriate network operating system. The boot ROM BIOS files are
combined with system BIOS, which can be enabled/disabled in the BIOS
setup.
6.2 Installation of Ethernet driver
Before installing the Ethernet driver, note the procedures below. You
must know which operating system you are using in your board Series,
and then refer to the corresponding installation flow chart. Then just follow the steps described in the flow chart. You will quickly and successfully complete the installation, even if you are not familiar with
instructions for MS-DOS or Windows.
Note:
The windows illustrations in this chapter are
examples only. Follow the steps and pay attention to the instructions which appear on your
screen.
6.2.1 Installation for MS-DOS and Windows 3.1
If you want to set up your Ethernet connection under the MS-DOS or
Windows 3.1 environment, you should first check your server system
model. For example, MS-NT, IBM-LAN server, and so on.
Then choose the correct driver to install in your biscuit PC.
The installation procedures for various servers can be found on the supplied CD-ROM, the correct path being:

Appendix
A
Programming the
Watchdog Timer
The board 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 Supported Input Timing Modes
In order to program the watchdog timer, you must write a program which
writes I/O port address 443 (hex). The output data is a value of time interval. The value range is from 01 (hex) to 3E (hex), and the related time
interval is 1 sec. to 62 sec.

02
03
04
3E
Time Interval
1 sec.
2 sec.
3 sec.
4 sec.
.
.
.
62 sec.
After data entry, your program must refresh the watchdog timer by
rewriting the I/O port 443 (hex) while simultaneously setting it.
When you want to disable the watchdog timer, your program
should read I/O port 443 (hex).
The following example shows how you might program the watchdog
timer in BASIC:
