CHAPTER 1.
INTRODUCTION
The EM586 is an embedded single board computer with full functionality, LCD/SVGA,
LAN, Sound output & a PCI slot for Intel 430TX Processor. It consists of an on-board
SVGA & Audio output, a PCI Ethernet Interface and a PCI expansion slot (PCI). The
Intel 430TX establishes a new class of low-cost, high-performance system that offers all
the functions of an industrial computer on a single board, and fits in the space of a 5.25inch floppy drive (only 5.75” x8” ). The EM586 has an on-board 2nd level cache RAM of
512KB for maximum performance. This design eliminates system conflicts and enduser configuration problems.
For the embedded board market this means more memory, more processing might, and
more I/O can be packed tighter. The form factor dispenses with the complexity, cost,
and bulk of conventional motherboards, backplanes, and card cages. The embedded
single board computer in EM586 also comes with the most popular PC/104 self –
stacking bus connector that suits the small form-factor board standards (compact
PC/104 3.6 x 3.8-inch self-stacking, modular format.). Today, the basic PC architecture
is used in such diverse embedded applications as vending machines, communications
devices, portable systems, and medical equipment. Among PC/104 standardizes the
repackaging of desktop PC functions to satisfy the ruggedness, reliability, and size
constraints of embedded systems.
PC/104 lets you combine special-purpose
embedded functions with the basic PC computing core.
Other on-board features include four serial ports (RS-232 and RS-232/422/485), one
multi-mode parallel (ECP/EPP/SPP) port, a floppy drive controller and a keyboard
interface and a PS/2 mouse interface. The built-in high speed PCI IDE controller
supports both PIO and bus master modes. Up to two IDE devices can be connected,
including large hard disks, CD-ROM drives, tape backup drives and other IDE devices.
Its 6-layer printed circuit board combines with noise-tolerant and low power consumption
CMOS technology applied on the board makes EM586 able to withstand any harsh
industrial environments very well.

JUMPER SETTING AND CONNECTORS
2.2 JUMPER SETTING OVERVIEW
In order to select the operation modes of your system, configure and set the jumpers on
the your Embedded SBC to match the need of your application. To set a jumper, a
black plastic cap containing metal contacts is placed over the jumper pins as designated
by the required configuration as listed in this section. A jumper is said to be “ on ” or
“ 1-2 ” when the black cap has been placed on two of its pins, as show in the figure
below:
A pair of needle-nose pliers is recommended when working with jumpers. If you have
any doubts about the best hardware configuration for your application, contact your local
sales representative before you make any changes. In general, you simply need a
standard cable to make most connections.
2.3 INSTALLING THE SIM MODULE:
A SIM module simply snaps into a socket on the system board. Pin1 of the SIM module
must correspond with Pin1 of the socket.
Notch
Pin1
Key
1. Position the SIMM above the socket with the “notch” in the module aligned with the
“key” on the socket.
2. Seat the module at a 45 angle into the bank. Make sure it is completely seated. Tilt
the module upright until it locks in place in the socket.

CHAPTER 3.
AWARD BIOS SETUP
Award‘ s ROM BIOS provides a built-in Setup program that allows user to modify the
basic system configuration and settings. The modified data will be stored in a batterybacked CMOS RAM so that these data will be retained even when the power is turned off.
In general, the information saved in the CMOS RAM stay unchanged unless there is
configuration change in the system, such as hard drive replacement or new equipment is
installed.
3.1 RUNNING AWARD BIOS
The Setup Utility is stored in the BIOS ROM. When the power of the computer system
is turned on, a screen message appears to give you an opportunity to call up the Setup
Utility; while the BIOS will enter the Power On Self Test (POST) routines. The POST
routines perform various diagnostic checks while initializing the board hardware. If the
routines encounter an error during the tests, the error will be reported in either of the two
different ways, hear a series of short beeps or see an error message on the screen
display. There are two kinds of error: fatal or non-fatal. The system can usually
continue to boot up sequence with the non-fatal errors. Non-fatal error messages
usually appear on the screen along with the following instructions:
“ Press <F1> to RESUME ”
Write down the message and press the F1 key to continue the bootup sequence.
the POST routines are completed, the following message appears:
After
“ Press DEL to enter SETUP ”
Entering Setup
Turn on the power of the computer system and press <Del> immediately. If you don’ t
have the chance to respond, reset the system by simultaneously typing the <Ctrl>, <Alt>
and <Delete> keys, or by pushing the ‘ Reset ’ button on the system cabinet. You can
also restart by turning the system OFF then ON.

The Standard CMOS Setup utility is used to configure the following components such as
date, time, hard disk drive, floppy drive, display and memory. Once a field is highlighted,
on-line help information is displayed in the left bottom of the Menu screen.
Set Date : Month, Date, Year.
Set Time : Hour, Minute and Second. Use 24-hour clock format (for p.m. time, add 12
to the hour number, you would enter 4:30 p.m. as 16:30). When you select the
“STANDARD CMOS SETUP” on the main program, the screen display will appears as:
Hard Disks : There are four hard disks listed: “ Primary Master”, “Primary Slave”,
“Secondary Master” and “Secondary Slave”. For each IDE channel, the first device is
EM586 / 35
AWARD BIOS SETUP
the “Master” and the second device is “Slave”. Hard disk types from 1 to 45 are the
standard ones. To select or change the configuration, move the cursor to the desired
position and press <Page Up> or <Page Down> to change the option : (1) Press “Auto”
for IDE HDD auto detection, (2) Press “User” for user definable, and Press “None” for not
installed (e.g. SCSI). There are six categories of information that you must enter for a
HDD: “CYLS.” for (number of cylinders), “HEADS” for (number of heads), “PRECOMP”
for (write pre-compensation), “LANDZ” for (landing zone), “SECTOR” for (number of
sectors) and ”MODE“ for (Normal, LBA, LARGE and AUTO). The hard disk vendor‘ s or
system manufacturer’ s documentation should provide you with the drive specifications.
For an IDE hard drive, you can set “TYPE” to “ Auto” or use the “IDE HDD AUTO
DETECTION” utility in the main program screen to enter the drive specifications.
Here is a brief explanation of drive specifications:
l Type : The BIOS contains a table of pre-defined drive types. Each defined drive
type has specified number of cylinders, number of heads, write compensation factor,
landing zone, and number of sectors. Drives whose specifications do not
accommodate any pre-defined type are classified as type USER.
l Size : Disk drive capacity (approximate). Note that this size is usually slightly
greater than the size of a formatted disk given by a diskchecking program.
l Cyls : Number of cylinders.
l Head : Number of heads.
l Precomp : Write precompensation cylinder
l Landz : Landing zone.
l Sector : Number of sectors.
l Mode : Auto, Normal, Large, or LBA.
• Auto: The BIOS automatically determines the optimal mode.
• Normal: Maximum number of cylinders, heads, and sectors supported are 1024,
16, and 63.
• Large: For drives that do not support LBA and have more than 1024 cylinders.
• LBA (Logical Block Addressing): During drive accesses, the IDE controller
transforms that data address described by sector, head, and cylinder number
into a physical block address, significantly improving data transfer rates. For
drives with greater 1024 cylinders.
The AWARD BIOS supports three HDD modes: NORMAL, LBA and LARGE.
EM586 / 36
AWARD BIOS SETUP
NORMAL mode : This is a Generic Access mode in which neither the BIOS nor the IDE
controller will make any transformation during the accession.
is supported by the NORMAL mode that is 528 Megabytes.
The maximum HDD size
LBA mode : This is a Logical Block Addressing mode which is a HDD accessing method
to overcome the 528 Megabytes restriction. The number of cylinders, heads and
sectors that are shown in setup may not be the physical number contained in the HDD.
During the HDD accessing, the IDE controller will transform the logical address that is
described by the cylinder, head and sector numbers into its own physical address as
contained inside the HDD. The maximum HDD size that is supported by the LBA mode
is 8.4 Gigabytes.
LARGE mode : Some IDE HDD contains more than 1024 cylinders without the LBA
support. This access mode tricks DOS (or other OS) with the number of cylinders that
is less than 1024 by dividing it by 2. At the same time, the number of heads is multiplied
by 2. A reverse transformation process will be made inside INT13H in order to access
to the right HDD address. The maximum HDD size that is supported by the LARGE
mode is 1 Gigabytes.
Note : 1. To support LBA or LARGE mode, there are softwares located in the AWARD
HD Service Routine“INT13H”. It may fail to access a HDD with LBA or
LARGE modes selected if you are running under an Operating System that
replaces the whole INT13H service routine.
2. Entering incorrect drive specifications will result in a hard disk drive that will
function improperly or no function at all.
Drive A and Drive B : Select the correct specifications for the diskette drive(s) installed
in the computer.

AWARD BIOS SETUP
DRAM Timing : The value in this field depends on the performance parameters of the
installed memory chips (DRAM). Do not change the value from the factory settings
unless you install new memory that has a different performance rating than the original
DRAMs.
DRAM Leadoff Timing : Select the combination of CPU clocks the DRAM on your board
requires before each reach from or write to the memory. Changing the value from the
setting determined by the board designer for the installed DRAM may cause memory
errors.
DRAM Read Burst (EDO/FP) : Sets the timing for reads from EDO (Extended Data
Output) or FPM (Fast Page Mode) memory. The lower the timing numbers, the faster
the system addresses memory. Selecting timing numbers lower than the installed
DRAM is able to support can result in memory errors.
DRAM Write Burst Timing : Your system designer should select the timing that the
system uses when reading from and writing to DRAM. Do not reset from the factory
default value.
Fast EDO Lead Off : Select Enabled only for EDO DRAMs in either a synchronous
cache or a cacheless system. It causes a 1-HCLK pull-in for all read leadoff latencies
for EDO DRAMs (i.e., page hits, page misses, and row misses). Select Disabled if any
of the DRAM rows are populated with FPM DRAMs.
Refresh RAS# Assertion : Select the number of clock cycles in which RAS# is asserted
for refresh cycles.
SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay : This field lets you insert a timing delay between the CAS
and RAS strobe signals, used when DRAM is written to, read from, or refreshed. Fast
gives faster performance; and Slow gives more stable performance. This field applies
only when synchronous DRAM is installed in the system.
SDRAM RAS Precharge Time : If insufficient number of cycles is allowed for the RAS to
accumulate its charge before DRAM refresh, the refresh may be incomplete and the
DRAM may fail to retain data. Fast gives faster performance; and Slow gives more
stable performance. This field applies only when synchronous DRAM is installed in the
system.

Video BIOS Cacheable : Selecting Enabled allows caching of the video BIOS ROM at
C0000h to C7FFFh, resulting in better video performance. However, if any program
writes to this memory area, a system eror may result.
Video RAM Cacheable : Selecting Enabled allows caching of the video BIOS ROM at
C0000h to C7FFFh, resulting in better video performance. However, if any program
writes to this memory area, a memory access error may result.
8/16 Bit I/O Recovery Time : The I/O recovery mechanism adds bus clock cycles
between PCI-originated I/O cycles to the ISA bus. This delay takes place because the
PCI bus is so much faster than the ISA bus. These two fields let you add recovery time
(in bus clock cycles) for 16-bit and 8-bit I/O.
Memory Hole At 15M-16M : The default setting is “Disabled”. Set to “Enabled” when
the system memory size is equal to or greater than 16M bytes, then the physical memory
address from 15M to 16M will be passed to PCI or ISA. Thus, there will be 1M Bytes
hole in your system memory. This option is designed for some OS with special add-on
cards which need 15M-16M memory space.

aperture. The aperture is portion of the PCI memory address range dedicated for
graphics memory address space. Host cycles that hit the aperture range are forwarded
to the AGP without any translation. See www.agpforum.org for APG information.
Auto Detect DIMM Clk : The default setting is “Enabled”. To reduce the occurrence of
electromagnetic interference (EMI), the BIOS detects the presence or absence of
components of DIMM and PCI slots and turns off system clock generator pulses to empty
slots.
CPU Host Clock : Select default or select a timing combination for the CPU and the PCI
bus. When set to default, the BIOS uses the actual CPU and PCI bus clock values.
CPU Warning Temperature : The default setting is “66oC/151oF”.
Select the
combination of lower and upper limits for the CPU temperature. If the CPU temperature
extends beyond either limit, any warning mechanism programmed into your system will
be activated.
Current CPU Temperature : The default setting is “36oC/96oF”. This field displays the
current CPU temperature, if your computer contains a monitoring system.
Current System Temp. : The default setting is “40oC/104oF”. This field displays the
current system temperature, if your computer contains a monitoring system.
Current CPUFAN1 Speed : The default setting is “3692 RPM”.
This field displays the
current speed of the CPU fan, if your computer contains a monitoring system.

Used MEM base addr : Because BIOSes fail to auto detect some specific ISA Legacy
cards with requested memory space below 1M address, we have added the “Used MEM
base addr” and “Used MEM Length” to support such kind of cards. Now, with these two
functions, users can define where the used memory address is located and its length of
the legacy area correspondingly. Based on this, BIOS will skip the UMB area that is
used by the legacy device to avoid the memory space conflict. For example, if the user
select “D000” for “Used MEM base addr” and “ 16K” for “Used MEM Length” that means
the address region D0000H-D3FFFH is occupied by ISA legacy cards, and BIOS will not
assign this region for PnP/ISA and PCI cards.

AWARD BIOS SETUP
Onboard Parallel Port : This option is used to assign the I/O address for the onboard
parallel port. The options are “378/IRQ7” (defaults), “278/IRQ7”, “3BC/IRQ7” and
“Disabled” (disable the onboard parallel port). Note: Printer port always use IRQ7
when set to “378/IRQ7” or “278/IRQ7”, or from “3BE/IRQ7” to “Enabled”.
Parallel Port Mode: There are four options “Normal” (default), “ECP”, “ECP/EPP” and
“EPP/SPP”. Change the mode from “Normal” to the enhanced mode only if your
peripheral device can support it. When it is set to ECP mode, the printer port always
uses DMA3.
3.11 SUPERVISOR/USER PASSWORD
The “SUPERVISOR/USER PASSWORD” utility sets the password. The SBC is
shipped with the password disabled. If you want to change the password, you must first
enter the current password, then at the prompt -- enter your new password. The
password is case sensitive, and can be up to 8 alphanumeric characters. Press
<Enter> after you have finished typing in the password. At the next prompt, confirm the
new password by re-typing it and pressing <Enter> again. When you are done, the
screen automatically reverts to the main screen. Remember that when you use this
feature, the “Security Option” line in BIOS FEATURES SETUP will determine when
entering the password will be required.
To disable the password, press the <Enter> key instead of entering a new password
when the “Enter Password” in the dialog box appears. A message will appear confirming
that the password is disabled.
If you have set both supervisor and user password, only the supervisor password allows
you to enter the BIOS SETUP PROGRAM.
Note : If you forget your password, the only way to solve this problem is to discharge the
CMOS memory by turning power off and placing a shunt on the S1 (open pad) for
5 seconds, then removing the shunt.

GLOSSARY
8-Bit Bus – Data is transmitted to expansion slots and other components on the bus only
along 8 parallel data line.
10Base-T – It is a 10Mbps IEEE 802.3/Ethernet standard that uses unshielded twisted
pair cable specification. 10Base-T supports network configuration using the CSMA/CD
access method over a twisted pair transmission system up to 100 meters in length
without the use of repeater.
16-Bit Bus or ISA Bus – Data is transmitted along either 8 or 16 data lines, depending
on what kind of adapter card is used in an expansion slot. ISA is the abbreviation of
Industry Standard Architecture.
100Base-TX – It is a 100Mbps IEEE 802.3/Ethernet standard that uses UTP cable.
Also called Fast Ethernet, it uses RJ-45 connectors and EIA/TIA T568B pinning.
Maximum cable length from hub to node is 100 meters without a repeater.
Adapter – It is also called an expansion board, expansion card, or adapter card.
It is a
small circuit board that is installed in the expansion slots on the motherboard. You can
install a particular adapter that connects a new device such as internal modem, sound
card, and scanner.
AGP (Accelerated Graphic Port) – is a 32-bit, 66MHz external frequency data bus that
transmit a maximum of 528MB/s of data (4 times the speed of PCI transmission); this
design improves the speed of large amount in video transaction.
BIOS (Basic Input /Output System) – This is a chip on the motherboard that contains
the instructions for starting up, or booting, the computer, and more.
Bus – Data that travels in a computer along the circuits on the motherboard are called
buses.
Although three main buses (data bus, address bus, and control bus) manage
the computer’ s operation, often these are collectively called the bus. The bus carries
instructions back and forth between the CPU and other devices in the system. ISA,
EISA, VL-Bus, PCI and SCSI are examples of PC buses.
EM586-87
GLOSSARY
bps – Bits per second. Also often preceded by K (kilo/thousands), Kbps – Kilo bytes
per second, and M (mega/million), Mbps – Mega bytes per second.
Bus Mastering – A method of transferring data through a bus in which the device takes
over the bus and directly controls the transfer of data to the computer’ s memory. Bus
mastering is a method of Direct Memory Access (DMA) transfer.
Cache – Cache RAM is an extra holding area for program instructions that need to be
frequently used by the CPU or swapped in and out of RAM. Your CPU can usually
access those instructions from the cache more quickly than it could from a hard disk or
even RAM, so a cache helps the system work more efficiently. Most systems sold
today offer either 256K or 512K cache.
CPU (Central Processing Unit) – executes all commands and controls the flow of data,
providing the “ brain ” that enables the PC to calculate and perform the operations like
sorting information more quickly than a human could. The CPU makes perhaps the
greatest contribution to a PC’ s speed and power. Note: Any additional information is
subject to change without prior revision from the supplier.

EIDE (Enhanced IDE) – It is a hard drive controller that enables your system to be able
to handle fast hard disk drives at a speed of 10Mbps.
EISA or MCA Bus – Data is transmitted along 32 data lines to adapter cards designed
specifically to work with the 32-bit buses. MCA expansion slots cannot accept 8-bit or
16-bit adapter cards. EISA stands for Extended Industry Standard Architecture, while
MCA stands for MicroChannel Architecture. MCA is architecture used in IBM
Microcomputer.
EM586-88
GLOSSARY
Expansion slots – Expansion slots are plug-in connectors that allow you to insert
additional circuit boards that attach to the rest of the PC through special circuitry called
the bus. By inserting the right circuit board -- usually called an adapter or an
expansion card – you can increase the resolution and the number of colors used by the
display, or you can transform your PC into a machine for recording and playing music.
Fast SCSI – The common nomenclature associated with SCSI-2, the second generation
of SCSI offering mandatory parity checking improvements over SCSI-1.
IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics) – It was developed from ST-506 type hard drive
interface, utilizes BIOS INT 13h hard drive secondary software and supports two hard
drives (Master and Slave). Do not need extra software to drive since it is directly
initiated in the BIOS. Data transfer rate is 4.1 Mbps. Take note that this interface
cannot support other drive like CD-ROM drive.
IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers) – It is an international
professional society that issues its own standard, and is a member of ANSI and ISO.
Popular known standards is:
IEEE802.3 – is a physical layer standard for 10Base-T,
100Base-T, Ethernet, and StarLAN.
IEEE802.5 – is a physical layer standard for Token Ring.
IEEE802.11 – is a physical layer standard for Wireless
LAN/WAN compatibility.
IEEE802.12 – is a physical layer standard for 100VG AnyLAN.
LAN (Local Area Network) – A data communications network spanning a limited area.
It provides communications between three or more computers and peripherals, in most
cases using a high-speed media as it’ s backbone.
EM586-89
GLOSSARY
Keyboard – This is a component that comes in direct contact for you with your PC.
The
mechanism of keyboard converts a key cap’ s movement into a signal sent to the
computer. The most common key mechanism are “ capacitate ” and “ hard contact ”.
Capacitate keyboard has a spring that causes the plastic and the metal plunger to move
nearer to two pads that have large plates (plated in tin, nickel, and copper). These pads
are connected to the keyboard’ s printed circuit board. Hard contact keyboard causes
the key cap to collapse a foam rubber dome that presses against a sheet of plastic on
the bottom of which is metallic area connected to the rest of the keyboard’ s
circuit board.
LDCM (LANDesk Client Manager) – With the help of LDCM, PCs that are either standalone or on a network can not escape the control of a system administrator. Alerts will
be sent to the user if an abnormal condition is encountered in a PC. It allows the
administrator to give each PC a thorough check-up. Additionally, this feature is
available to multiple OS’ s on the market today. LDCM Key Features include
the
following : ¬Health Monitoring
¡ A
-Real-Time Alerting¡ A
®Remote Accessibility¡ Ā Extensive
Instrumentation.
This is a product from Intel.
Mouse – The keyboard is a barrier to learn how to use a computer.
Xerox Corporation
first developed the concept of a pointing device, something a computer user could move
with his or her hand, causing a corresponding move on screen. Because of its size and
tail like cable, the device was named for the mouse. Apple Computer made the mouse
a standard feature of its Macintosh computers, and with the popularity of Windows, a
mouse is becoming standard equipment on all PCs, as well. The “ Trackball ” have
survived more awkward methods of navigating with the keyboard. “ Digitizing tablets ”
are popular with architects and engineers who must translate precise movements of a
pen into lines on the screen. “ Touch screens “, on which you press either your finger
and a special light pen to control the software, are too tiring to use for any length of time.
MMX – CPU’ s with MMX technology are optimized to run multimedia application,
and therefore, offer faster multimedia playback than standard CPUs. However, when
manufacturers introduce any new hardware technology, the software makers need to
catch up. At this time of compilation, most applications can’ t yet take advantage of
MMX capabilities.
EM-586-90
GLOSSARY
Parallel port – Parallel ports (labeled LPT1, LPT2, and so on) are usually for plugging in
printers. It is also often called a Centronics port – has been almost synonymous with
printer port. Although a serial port can also be used to send data from a PC to some
models of printers, the parallel port is faster. A serial port sends data one bit at a time
over a single one-way wire; a parallel port can send several bits of data across eight
parallel wires simultaneously. Take note that a serial connection sends a single bit, a
parallel port send an entire byte. A parallel connection has one drawback.
PCI Bus (Peripheral Component Interconnect) – It is a connection slot in a
motherboard that supports 32-bit bus transfer rates. The now standard PCI Local Bus
carries data along at least 32 lines, that is, at least 32 bits at a time. Local bus
computer designs add special buses so the CPU can communicate directly with key
components like the monitor, resulting in much better performance. You should look for
PCI local bus capabilities in any system you buy, especially PCI local bus video (which
helps the monitor display more quickly).
POST (Power-On Self-Test) – is the first thing your PC does when you turn it on, and
it’ s your first warning of trouble with any of the components. When the POST detects
an error from the display, memory, keyboard, or other basic components, it produces an
error warning in the form of a message on your display and —in case your display is part
of the problem —in the form of a series of beeps.
RAM (Random Access Memory) – consists of a bank of chips that act as “ working
memory ”, holding program instructions and data only while your computer’ s on. Unless
the instructions and data are saved to a disk, RAM forgets them when you turn your
computer off. RAM is measured in megabytes (M). Most computers today come with
32M of RAM, though some sell with only 16M installed. There are a few different
flavors and speeds of RAM, as well. One of the most prominent today is Extended Data
Output ( EDO ) RAM, but an even faster type of RAM that has just hit the market is called
SyncDRAM.
Serial port – Serial ports are also sometimes called COM (short for COMmunications)
ports, and are labeled COM1, COM2, and so on. It is simple in concept: one line to
send data, another line to receive data, and a few other lines to regulate how data is sent
over the other two lines – from commonplace modems and printers to plotters and
burglar alarms. The most common use for serial port is with a mouse or modem. The
reason for this is that a serial port is not a very efficient way to transfer data, so little data
EM586-91
GLOSSARY
that speed is not crucial, and perfect for modems because. With current technology,
phone lines cannot transport more than one signal at a time anyway. The serial port is
often referred to as an RS-232 port.
SCSI (Small Computer System Interface) – An intelligent bus for transmitting data
commands between a variety of devices. There are many implementations of SCSI,
including Fast SCSI, Wide SCSI, Fast Wide SCSI, Fast-20, and Fast-40.
SCSI-2 – The second generation of SCSI; includes many improvements to SCSI-1,
including Fast SCSI, Wide SCSI, and mandatory parity checking.
SCSI-3 – The third generation of SCSI; introduces Fast-20 and Fast-40 as
improvements to the parallel bus.
The standard also includes a number of
specifications for high-speed serial bus architectures such as SSA, Fiber Channel, and
IEEE 1394. Also known as Ultra SCSI.
Ultra SCSI – Also known as SCSI-3, is a third generation SCSI standard that introduced
parallel bus speed improvements (FAST-20 and FAST-40), an the miniaturized 68-pin
