3.5 WDT Function

The working algorithm of the WDT function can be simply described as a counting process. The Time-Out Interval can be set through software programming. The availability of the time-out interval settings by software or hardware varies from boards to boards.

The built-in Mini-ITX board allows users to control WDT through dynamic software programming. The WDT starts counting when it is activated. It sends out a signal to system reset or to non-maskable interrupt (NMI), when time-out interval ends. To prevent the time-out interval from running out, a re-trigger signal will need to be sent before the counting reaches its end. This action will restart the counting process. A

EUDA PPC User’s Manual 3-6

System Installation well-written WDT program should keep the counting process running under normal condition. WDT should never generate a system reset or NMI signal unless the system runs into troubles.

The related Control Registers of WDT are all included in the following sample program that is written in C language. User can fill a non-zero value into the

Time-out Value Register to enable/refresh WDT. System will be reset after the

Time-out Value to be counted down to zero. Or user can directly fill a zero value into

Time-out Value Register to disable WDT immediately. To ensure a successful accessing to the content of desired Control Register, the sequence of following program codes should be step-by-step run again when each register is accessed.

Additionally, there are maximum 2 seconds of counting tolerance that should be considered into user’ application program. For more information about WDT, please refer to Winbond W83627HG-AW data sheet.

There are two PNP I/O port addresses that can be used to configure WDT,

1) 0x2E: EFIR (Extended Function Index Register, for identifying CR index number)

2) 0x2F: EFDR (Extended Function Data Register, for accessing desired CR)

Below are some example codes, which demonstrate the use of WDT.

BIOS Setup Information

The built-in Mini-ITX board is equipped with the AWARD BIOS stored in Flash

ROM. These BIOS has a built-in Setup program that allows users to modify the basic system configuration easily. This type of information is stored in CMOS RAM so that it is retained during power-off periods. When system is turned on, the built-in

Mini-ITX board communicates with peripheral devices and checks its hardware resources against the configuration information stored in the CMOS memory. If any error is detected, or the CMOS parameters need to be initially defined, the diagnostic program will prompt the user to enter the SETUP program. Some errors are significant enough to abort the start-up.

Turn on or reboot the computer. When the message “Hit <DEL> if you want to run

SETUP” appears, press <Del> key immediately to enter BIOS setup program.

If the message disappears before you respond, but you still wish to enter Setup, please restart the system to try “COLD START” again by turning it OFF and then

ON, or touch the "RESET" button. You may also restart from “WARM START” by pressing <Ctrl>, <Alt>, and <Delete> keys simultaneously. If you do not press the keys at the right time and the system will not boot, an error message will be displayed and you will again be asked to,

Press <F1> to Run SETUP or Resume

In HIFLEX BIOS setup, you can use the keyboard to choose among options or modify the system parameters to match the options with your system. The table below will show you all of keystroke functions in BIOS setup.

Selecting “Defaults” from the main menu shows two options which are described below,

EUDA PPC User’s Manual 4-19

BIOS Setup Information

Load Fail-Safe Defaults

When <Enter> is pressed, a confirmation dialog box with a message similar to:

Load Fail-Safe Defaults (Y/N) ? N

Pressing ‘Y’ loads the BIOS default values for the most stable, minimal-performance system operations.

Load Optimized Defaults

When <Enter> is pressed, a confirmation dialog box with a message similar to:

Load Optimized Defaults (Y/N) ? N

Pressing ‘Y’ loads the default values that are factory settings for optimal performance system operations.

4.12 Supervisor/User Password Setting

Either supervisor or user password can be setup, or both of then. The differences between are:

Set Supervisor Password : can enter and change the options of the setup menus.

Set User Password : just can only enter but do not have the right to change the options of the setup menus. When selecting this function, the following message will appear at the center of the screen to assist you in creating a password.

ENTER PASSWORD

Type the password, up to eight characters in length, and press <Enter>. The password typed now will clear any previously entered password from CMOS memory. You will be asked to confirm the password. Type the password again and press <Enter>. You may also press <Esc> to abort the selection and not enter a password.

To disable a password, just press <Enter> when prompted to enter the password. A message will confirm the password will be disabled. Once the password is disabled, the system will reboot and Setup can be entered freely.

PASSWORD DISABLED

When a password has been enabled, user will be prompted to enter it every time user tries to enter Setup. This prevents an unauthorized person from changing any part of your system configuration.

Additionally, when a password is enabled, you can also require the BIOS to request a password every time your system is rebooted. This would prevent unauthorized use of the computer.

EUDA PPC User’s Manual 4-20

BIOS Setup Information

User may determine when the password is required within the BIOS Features Setup

Menu and its Security option (see Section 3). If the Security option is set to “System”, the password will be required both at boot and at entry to Setup. If set to “Setup”, prompting only occurs when trying to enter Setup.

4.13 Exiting Selection

Save & Exit Setup

Pressing <Enter> on this item asks for confirmation:

Save to CMOS and EXIT (Y/N)? Y

Pressing “Y” stores the selections made in the menus in CMOS – a special section of memory that stays on after system off. During subsequnet booting of computer, the

BIOS configures the system according to the Setup selections stored in CMOS. After saving the values the system is restarted again.

Exit Without Saving

Pressing <Enter> on this item asks for confirmation:

Quit Without Saving (Y/N)? N

This allows user to exit Setup without storing in CMOS any change. The previous selections remain in effect. This exits the Setup utility and restarts your computer.

5.3 I forgot my password of system BIOS, what am I supposed to do?

You can simply short 2-3 pins on JP9 (CMOS Clear) to clean your password.

5.4 I’d like to know the System Memory Address Map

Each On-board device in the system is assigned a set of memory addresses, which also can be identical of the device. The following table lists the system memory address used for your reference.

5.5 I’d like to know more about the BIOS Setting

It is assumed that users have correctly adopted modules and connected all the devices cables required before turning on DC 12V power. 200-pin DDR2 SDRAM, keyboard, mouse, SATA hard disk, VGA connector, device power cables, ATX accessories are good examples that deserve attention. With no assurance of properly and correctly accommodating these modules and devices, it is very possible to encounter system failures that result in malfunction of any device.

To make sure that you have a successful start with the built-in Mini-ITX board, it is recommended, when going with the boot-up sequence, to hit “DEL” key and enter the BIOS setup menu to tune up a stable BIOS configuration so that you can wake up your system far well.

EUDA PPC User’s Manual 5-5

FAQ

Loading the default optimal setting

When prompted with the main setup menu, please scroll down to “Load Optimal

Defaults”, press “Enter” and “Y” to load in default optimal BIOS setup. This will force your BIOS setting back to the initial factory configuration. It is recommended to do this so you can be sure the system is running with the BIOS setting that Portwell has highly endorsed. As a matter of fact, users can load the default BIOS setting any time when system appears to be unstable in boot up sequence.

Auto Detect Hard Disks

In the BIOS => Standard CMOS setup menu, pick up any one from

Primary/Secondary Master/Slave IDE ports, and press “Enter”. Setup the selected

IDE port and its access mode to “Auto”. This will force system to automatically pick up the IDE devices that are being connected each time system boots up.

Improper disable operation

There are too many occasions where users disable a certain device/feature in one application through BIOS setting. These variables may not be set back to the original values when needed. These devices/features will certainly fail to be detected.

When the above conditions happen, it is strongly recommended to check the BIOS settings. Make sure certain items are set as they should be. These include the COM1/

COM2 ports, USB ports, external cache, on-board VGA and Ethernet.

It is also very common that users would like to disable a certain device/port to release IRQ resource. A few good examples are

Disable COM1 serial port to release IRQ #4

Disable COM2 serial port to release IRQ #3

Etc…
