System Overview
1.1
Introduction
PICMG organization published PICMG 1.3 specification in late year 2005 which
adopts PCI Express as external I/O expansion interface. The advanced PCI Express
Technology’s throughput balanced the modern extreme computing power that
makes the system much more powerful.
96M4321o, the PICMG 1.3 SHB (Single Host Board) supports Intel® Core 2
Duo processor that based on Intel® innovated Core Microarchitecture. The
attractive processor does not only posses amazing parallel computing power but
also generates 65W TDP (Thermal Design Power). That makes the system more
powerful and reliable with dual-core processor with smaller and quieter cooling fan.
The SHB was empowered by Intel® Q965 & ICH8DO chipset. The Q965 embedded
Graphics Media Adapter 3000 is the 4th generation Intel integrated graphics
controller that supports DirectX 9.0, Shader model 2.0, 256MB of video memory.
More than that, user could utilize even higher-end, the latest PCI Express x16
interface graphics card via backplane.
To meet bandwidth of storage and expansion cards requirement, the
96M4321o was designed flexible with four PCI Express lanes via backplane.
Those four PCI Express lanes could be four PCI Express x1 links or one PCI Express
x4 link. Four PCI Express x1 links configuration can support more PCI Express x1
devices via backplane and one PCI Express x4 link configuration can support RAID
card or special add-on cards such as image processing board. In addition, the
flexible configuration can be leveraged with bridge on backplane to support more
PCI or PCI-X slots that benefits industries with legacy support.
Advanced Management Technology (AMT) is feature that 96M4321o
equipped. This technology provides remote access capability via Intel® Gigabit
Ethernet controller. With software from 3rd party, the new technology allows MIS
or user to monitor system status and help the client to recover failure system.
Beside that, the hardware and software information can be gathering by 3rd party
software then storage in SPI interface EEPROM. Therefore, asset management
could be done at the same time.

socket or two single-sided DIMM in both sockets.
Watch out the contact and lock integrity of memory module with socket, it will
impact on the system reliability. Follow normal procedures to install memory
module into memory socket. Before locking, make sure that all modules have been
fully inserted into the card slots.
Dual Channel DDR2 DIMMs
Dual Channel DDR2 memory technology doubles the bandwidth of memory bus.
Adequate or higher bandwidth of memory than processor would increase system
performance. To enable Dual Channel DDR2 memory technology, install two
identical memory modules in both memory sockets is required. Following tables
show bandwidth information of different processor and memory configurations.

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.
96M4321o allows users 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 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 Timeout 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 W83627EHG data sheet.
There are two PNP I/O port DDR2 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.
// Enter Extended Function Mode
outp(0x002E, 0x87);
outp(0x002E, 0x87);
// Assign Pin 77 to be a WDTO, 0 write to CR2D:Bit0

SMBus
The System Management Bus is a two-wire interface through which simple powerrelated chips can communicate with rest of the system. It uses I2C as its backbone.
A system using SMBus passes messages to and from devices instead of tripping
individual control lines. With the SMBus, a device can provide manufacturer
information, tell the system what its model/part number is, save its state for a
suspend event, report different types of errors, accept control parameters, and return
its status.
The SMBus may share the same host device and physical bus as ACCESS bus
components provided that an appropriate electrical bridge is provided between the
interval SMB devices and external ACCESS bus devices.

96M4321o GPIO Programming Guide
There are 8 GPIO pins on 96M4321o series. These GPIO pins are from
SUPER I/O (W83627EHG) GPIO pins, and can be programmed as Input or Output
direction.
J46 pin header is for 8 GPIO pins and its pin assignment as following :
J46_Pin1=GPIO1:from SUPER I/O_GPIO 10 with Ext. 4.7K PH
J46_Pin2=GPIO2:from SUPER I/O_GPIO 14 with Ext. 4.7K PH

System Installation
There are several Configuration Registers (CR) of W83627EHG needed to be
programmed to control the GPIO direction, and status (GPI)/value (GPO). CR00h ~
CR2F are common (global) registers to all Logical Devices (LD) in W83627EHG.
CR07h contains the Logical Device Number that can be changed to access the LD as
needed. LD7 contains the GPIO10~17 registers.
Programming Guide:
Step1: LD7_CR07h.P [07h]; Point to LD7
Step2: LD7_CR30h_Bit0.P1; Enable LD7
Step3: CR F3h_Bit [7.0]. P [1,1,1,1,1,1,1]; to select multiplexed pins as GPIO10~17 pins
Step4: Select GPIO direction, Get Status or output value.
LD7_CRF0h; GPIO17 ~ 10 direction, 1 = input, 0 = output pin
LD7_CRF2h.P [00h]; Let CRF1 (GPIO data port) non-invert to prevent from
confusion
LD7_CRF1h; GPIO17~10 data port, for input pin, get status from the related bit, for
output pin, write value to the related bit.
For example,
LD7_CRF0h_Bit4.P0; Let GPIO14 as output pin
LD7_CRF2h_Bit4.P0; Let CRF1_Bit4 non-inverted
LD7_CRF1h_Bit4.P0; Output “0” to GPIO14 pin (J46_Pin2)
LD7_CRF0h_Bit0.P1; Let GPIO10 as input pin
LD7_CRF2h_Bit0.P0; Let CRF1_Bit0 non-inverted
Read LD7_CRF1h_Bit0; Read the status from GPIO10 pin (J46_Pin1)
How to access W83627EHG CR?
In 96M4321o, the EFER = 002Eh, and EFDR = 002Fh.
EFER and EFDR are 2 IO ports needed to access W83627EHG CR.
EFER is the Index Port, EFDR is the Data Port.
CR index number needs to be written into EFER first,
Then the data will be read/written from/to EFDR.
To R/W W83627EHG CR, it is needed to Enter/Enable Configuration Mode first.
When completing the programming, it is suggested to Exit/Disable Configuration
Mode.
Enter Configuration Mode: Write 87h to IO port EFER twice.
Exit Configuration Mode: Write AAh to IO port EFER.

Supervisor/User Password Setting
Either supervisor or user password can be setup, or both of then.
between are:
The differences
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.
96M4321o User’s Manual

BIOS Setup Information
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.
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.

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.

Troubleshooting
This chapter provides a few useful tips to quickly get 96M4321o running
with success. As basic hardware installation has been addressed in Chapter 2, this
chapter will primarily focus on system integration issues, in terms of BIOS setting,
and OS diagnostics.
5.1
Hardware Quick Installation
Backplane
96M4321o is a full-sized Signal Board Computer, and therefore is only able
to run on PICMG 1.3 backplane. To know whether your backplane is PICMG 1.3
backplane, please contact with vendor or manufacturer.
P4 Power connector
The CPU supplementary Power Connector (J10) has to be connected to a system all
the time no matter using ATX mode. Otherwise, the system won’t boot up properly.
Serial ATA Hard Disk employment
Each Serial ATA channel can only connect to one SATA hard disk at a time; there are
total four connectors, J27/J28/J31/J32. The installation of Serial ATA is simpler and
easier than IDE, because SATA hard disk doesn’t require setting up Master and
Slave, which can reduce mistake of hardware installation. All you need to do is to
plug in two cables and enable SATA in System BIOS.

Troubleshooting
5.2
BIOS Setting
It is assumed that users have correctly adopted modules and connected all the
devices cables required before turning on ATX power. CPU, CPU Fan, 240-pin DDR2
SDRAM, keyboard, mouse, floppy drive, IDE hard disk, printer, VGA connector,
device cables, ATX accessories or 12V 4-pin power cable 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 96M4321o series, 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.
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 floppy
drive, COM1/COM2 ports, Parallel port, 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

Symptom: There is neither no beeps nor screen output.
Solution: Indeed, you can do the stand-alone to identify the root cause by isolating
the board from other possible system devices such as PCI device,
backplane, and so on. If the system still cannot boot up, please fill out
RMA from which is provides on Portwell website, and then send back to
Portwell as a RMA. Besides, you also visit RMA site
(http://www.portwell.com.tw/rma/login.asp) to check RMA report if
necessary.
Information & Support
Question: Intel Q965 Chipset supports Dual Channel Mode, but how can I enable
this function?
Answer: Indeed, you don’t have to change any setting. You can simply plug DDR2
SDRAM Module on DIMMs, and then system will automatically enable
Dual Channel Mode.
Question: What kind of CPU supports Hyper-Threading?
Answer: All FSB 1066/800/533 MHz series CPU support Hyper-Threading mode.
Question: Why cannot I install USB 2.0 driver?
Answer: If you are using Windows 2000, you need to update your Service-Pack
