3.1 Anti-static Precautions
WARNING:
Failure to take ESD precautions during the installation of the
NANO-9453 may result in permanent damage to the NANO-9453 and
severe injury to the user.
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can cause serious damage to electronic components,
including the NANO-9453. Dry climates are especially susceptible to ESD. It is therefore
critical that whenever the NANO-9453, or any other electrical component is handled, the
following anti-static precautions are strictly adhered to.
Wear an anti-static wristband: - Wearing a simple anti-static wristband can
help to prevent ESD from damaging the board.
Self-grounding:- Before handling the board touch any grounded conducting
material. During the time the board is handled, frequently touch any
conducting materials that are connected to the ground.
Use an anti-static pad: When configuring the NANO-9453, place it on an
antic-static pad. This reduces the possibility of ESD damaging the
NANO-9453.
Only handle the edges of the PCB:- When handling the PCB, hold the PCB
by the edges.
3.2 Unpacking
3.2.1 Unpacking Precautions
When the NANO-9453 is unpacked, please do the following:
Follow the anti-static precautions outlined in Section 3.1.
Make sure the packing box is facing upwards so the NANO-9453 does not fall
out of the box.
Make sure all the components shown in Section 3.3 are present.

NANO-9453 EPIC Motherboard
C.1 DIO Interface Introduction
The DIO connector on the NANO-9453 is interfaced to GIO ports on the iTE Super I/O
chipset. The DIO has both 4-bit digital inputs and 4-bit digital outputs. The digital inputs
and digital outputs are generally control signals that control the on/off circuit of external
devices or TTL devices. Data can be read or written to the selected address to enable the
DIO functions.
NOTE:
For further information, please refer to the datasheet for the iTE Super
I/O chipset.
C.2 DIO Connector Pinouts

D Watchdog Timer
Page 205
NANO-9453 EPIC Motherboard
NOTE:
The following discussion applies to DOS environment. IEI support is
contacted or the IEI website visited for specific drivers for more
sophisticated operating systems, e.g., Windows and Linux.
The Watchdog Timer is provided to ensure that standalone systems can always recover
from catastrophic conditions that cause the CPU to crash. This condition may have
occurred by external EMI or a software bug. When the CPU stops working correctly,
Watchdog Timer either performs a hardware reset (cold boot) or a Non-Maskable Interrupt
(NMI) to bring the system back to a known state.
A BIOS function call (INT 15H) is used to control the Watchdog Timer:
INT 15H:
AH – 6FH Sub-function:
AL – 2:
Sets the Watchdog Timer’s period.
BL:
Time-out value (Its unit-second is dependent on the item “Watchdog
Timer unit select” in CMOS setup).
Table D-1: AH-6FH Sub-function
Call sub-function 2 to set the time-out period of Watchdog Timer first. If the time-out value
is not zero, the Watchdog Timer starts counting down. While the timer value reaches zero,
the system resets. To ensure that this reset condition does not occur, calling sub-function
2 must periodically refresh the Watchdog Timer. However, the Watchdog timer is disabled
if the time-out value is set to zero.
A tolerance of at least 10% must be maintained to avoid unknown routines within the
operating system (DOS), such as disk I/O that can be very time-consuming.
Page 206

NOTE:
When exiting a program it is necessary to disable the Watchdog Timer,
otherwise the system resets.
