1. Features and Specifications
Crystal-MM-HP is a dual-channel audio module for PC/104 embedded systems. It provides 16-bit stereo
recording and playback with sample rates up to 44.1kHz. Features include full-duplex (simultaneous
record and playback) capability, plug and play configuration, multiple input and output channels, multiple
input and output user connection options, on-board 6-channel mixer, and built-in 20-voice FM synthesizer
compatible with the Yamaha OPL3. The board can also perform ADPCM compression and
decompression of .WAV files. The board uses ESS Technology Inc.’s ES1868/1869 AudioDrive chip.
Inputs include stereo line in, stereo CD in (connected to auxiliary input), mono microphone in, and mono
PC speaker in. Outputs include stereo line out, stereo amplified speaker out, and analog version of PC
speaker out.
Crystal-MM-HP provides full SoundBlaster ProTM and Windows Sound SystemTM compatibility and will
operate with applications designed for those environments. Software drivers and applications from ESS
Technology are included for Windows 95TM, 98TM, and NTTM.
Crystal-MM-HP requires +5V from the PC/104 bus. Output power is 0.5W RMS per channel into 8Ω.
CMM-HP-EX contain a heatsink to dissipate the higher levels of heat generated by the higher output
levels of the audio amplifier. This heatsink fits within the envelope of the PC/104 specification and will
provide ample clearance for stacking a board above.

3. I/O Header and Jack Pinouts
In the header pinouts described below, note that the audio speaker amplifier outputs appear on three
headers: J3, J4, and J5. Also note that Line In has two connection points (J4 and J6) and Line Out has
two connection points (J4 and J5).
Configuration information for all headers is shown on pages 8-10.
Caution: Only one Speaker connection may be used at one time. If more than one
connection is used, the load impedance on the audio amplifier will be too low, and
the audio amplifier could be damaged.
Caution: Only one Line In connection may be used at one time. If more than one
connection is used, the line impedance will be too low. This could cause distortion or other
malfunction.
Caution: Only one Line Out connection may be used at one time. If more than one
connection is used, the line impedance will be too low. This could cause distortion or other
malfunction.

This header enables the user to control volume with an external stereo 100KΩ potentiometer. The output
volume on each channel is directly proportional to the resistance between the wiper for that channel and
ground.

This header provides standard PC speaker in (2-pin) and out (4-pin) connections on a single header. The
user may connect the PC speaker either to this point or to the main CPU connection point. The Mono
In/Out signals are available only on versions of the board with the ES1869 chip.
If PC Speaker Out is used on this header, then the main CPU PC Speaker Out signal must be
connected to PC Speaker In on this header. Otherwise there will be no signal on PC Speaker Out on
this header.
Both J8 and J13 are identical and are wired in parallel. Only one of these locations has a pin header
installed, depending on which version of the board you have.

4. Hardware Configuration
Quick List of Configuration Options
Base address options: 220, 230, 240, 250 Hex; Selected via plug and play configuration
Interrupt levels:
5, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 15; Selected via plug and play configuration
DMA levels:
0, 1, 3; Selected via plug and play configuration
Volume control:
A. Full volume, volume controlled in software only.
B. External stereo potentiometer control plus software control.
Volume control method is selected via jumper setting
Stereo jacks:
Output jack can be either stereo speaker output or stereo line out;
Input jack can be either stereo line in or mono microphone in
Address / Interrupt / DMA Configuration
The board’s base address, interrupt level, and DMA level are set at driver installation time. Jumper block
J9 is used to select which plug and play options are available. The diagram on page 8 explains all the
valid jumper settings. For normal installation, select IRQ E = 11, IRQ F = 12, and Internal ROM.
Speaker Configuration
The audio amplifier volume is always controllable in software via the volume control application included,
as well as other SoundBlaster Pro compatible volume control software. It can be additionally controlled
with an external stereo 100KΩ potentiometer, if desired. J10 selects this option. See page 8 for
configuration instructions.
Stereo Jack Configuration
Crystal-MM-HP provides two 3.5mm stereo jacks for convenience. Many PC speakers and microphones
use standard 3.5mm diameter stereo jacks for connection. The signals appearing on these jacks are
controlled by configuration header J11 located immediately to the left of these jacks near the bottom of
the board. Refer to the drawing on page 9 for valid jumper settings.
J5 (upper jack) is the output jack and can be configured for either Speaker Out or Line Out. Both settings
are stereo, with the following conventions: Tip = Left, Ring = Right, and Shield = Common.
J6 (lower) is the input jack and can be configured for either Line In or Microphone In. Note that CrystalMM-HP supports only a mono microphone input. If a mono microphone is used, then either jumper setting
will provide the same connection. If a stereo microphone is used, then either the left or right channel can
be used, but not both. For Line In configuration, Tip = Left, Ring = Right, and Shield = Common.

5. Installation
Before installing the board in your computer, make the following configuration selections:
Select the desired interrupt options with jumper block J9.
The default setting is IRQ E = 11, IRQ F = 12.
Select the desired plug and play ROM option with jumper block J9.
The default setting is internal ROM.
Select the desired volume control option with jumper block J10.
The default setting is Internal.
Select the desired stereo jack configuration with jumper block J11.
The default settings are J5 = speaker out, J6 = line in.
Add the board onto your stack and power up.
For DOS, run CMMHPDOS.EXE to extract the DOS configuration utility program ESSCFG.EXE. Follow
the instructions in the file readme.txt. The default extract directory is CMMHP\DOS.
For Windows 95, the system should detect the board automatically and install the default ESS driver.
Installation procedures will vary from system to system. Windows 95 may or may not ask for the Windows
diskettes and may or may not ask for the driver diskette shipped with the board. Note that the driver
diskette includes a self-extracting file CMMHPWin95.exe. Run this program to extract the driver files prior
to installation of the board. The default extract directory is CMMHP\Win95.
There are three devices seen by Windows 95: The audio board, the game port, and the control device.
The control device is used to configure the audio board and game port. On some systems it may be
necessary to configure the devices independently in Control Panel / System / Device Manager.
Also remember that since this board is plug and play, the CPU BIOS must support plug and play
operations. On some systems, the plug and play features must be enabled in the BIOS setup screens
that are accessed at boot time.
