1.1
Introduction
This new Half-size CPU Card SBC-657 with onboard VIA Eden 667 or Ezra
800MHz (fan required), offers great value in an embedded computing
platform for low power, low profile, fanless, mobile industrial applied
computing applications based using the PCISA CPU card / Slot PC
standard.
With its superior computing capacity using low power, embedded, x86compliant architecture for industrial embedded computers, the SBC-657
enables flexible system designs, including low profile and silent fanless
devices (667MHz only). The VIA Eden Platform is designed for optimal
heat dissipation and power consumption, allowing quiet-running fanless
device designs and saving on energy costs and battery life. With this
ultimate feature onboard SBC-657 saves energy in mobile designs.
Features onboard included: Integrated 4X 2D/3D Graphic Controller,
a 10/100Base-T Fast Ethernet port, and 18/36-bit LCD Panel support. Its
design is based on the half-size CPU card form factor and supports ISA
bus, PC/104 expansion. Other on-board features include 4 COMs / 1
Parallel / 4 USBs / 1 IrDA Port. The SSD solution supports
CompactFlash cards. Power management can be flexible with its ATX or
AT power support.
This product uses a VIA Twister-T chip VT8606 with Integrated 2D/3D/
Video Accelerator. The VGA/LCD interface has a frame buffer of up to 32
MB using system memory. It can display both CRT and Flat Panel (TFT)
simutaneously. The SBC-657 supports single 10/100Mbps Ethernet
connections through RJ-45 connectors. The SBC-657 can be the best
fanless solution if Eden 667MHz CPU is chosen. This is perfect for target
market segments such as modern gateway devices, VPNs, firewalls,
or machine controllers, especially for *Always on* devices.

Setting Jumpers
Configure your card to meet the needs of your applications by
setting jumper which is the simplest electric switch. It consists of
two metal pins and a small metal clip (often protected by a plastic
cover) that slides over the pins to connect them. To close a jumper,
connect the pins with the clip. To "open" a jumper, please remove
the clip. Sometimes a jumper will have three pins, labeled 1, 2, and
3. In this case you would connect either pins 1 and 2 or 2 and 3.

Floppy Drive Connector (CN4)
With support of different types of floppy, you can simply adopt any
of the combinations of 5.25" (360 KB and 1.2 MB) and/or 3.5" (720
KB, 1.44 MB, and 2.88 MB) drives onto the mainboard.
A 34-pin daisy-chain drive connector cable is required for a dualdrive system. On one end of the cable is a 34-pin flat-cable connector. On the other end are two sets of floppy disk drive connectors.
Each set consists of a 34-pin flat-cable connector (usually used for
3.5" drives) and a printed-circuit board connector (usually used for
5.25" drives).
Wire number 1 on the cable is normally red or blue, and the other
wires are usually gray.
Connecting the floppy drive
1. Plug the 34-pin flat-cable connector into CN4. Make sure that
the red or blue wire corresponds to pin 1 on the connector.
2. Attach the appropriate connector on the other end of the cable
to the floppy drive(s). You can use only one connector in the
set. The set on the end (after the twist in the cable) connects to
A: drive. The set in the middle connects to B: drive.
3. If you are connecting a 5.25" floppy drive, line up the slot in the
printed circuit board with the blocked-off part of the cable
connector.
If you are connecting a 3.5" floppy drive, you may have trouble
determining which pin is pin number 1. Look for a number
printed on the circuit board indicating pin number 1. Also,
the connector on the floppy drive connector may have a slot.
When the slot is up, pin number 1 should be on the right.
Check the documentation that came with the drive for more
information.
If you desire, connect the B: drive to the connectors in the
middle of the cable as described above.

IDE Hard Drive Connector (CN8)
You can attach up to two Enhanced Integrated Device Electronics
hard disk drives to CN8. The IDE controller of SBC-657 uses a PCI
local bus interface. This advanced interface supports faster data
transfer.
Connecting the hard drive
Connecting to ATA66/100 drives requires a 80 pins wire conductor
IDE cable and an adaptor to connect to the slim hard drive.
Wire number 1 on the cable is normally red or blue, and the other
wires are usually gray.
1. Connect one end of the cable to CN8. Make sure that the red
wire corresponds to pin 1 on the connector
2. Plug the other end of the cable to the Enhanced IDE hard drive,
with pin 1 on the cable corresponding to pin 1 on the hard
drives. (see your hard drive's documentation for the location of
the connector).
Connect a second drive as described above.
For ATA66/100, if you install two drives, the black end of the
cable connect to Master drive and the grey end connect to the
Slave drive.

BIOS CONFIGURATION
Award's BIOS ROM has a built-in Setup program that allows
users to modify the basic system configuration. This type of
information is stored in battery-backed CMOS SRAM so that it
retains the Setup information when the power is turned off.
3.1
Entering Setup
n
To Enter Setup Before Boot Press
<Del>
Power ON the computer and press <Del> immediately will allow
you to enter Setup. The other way to enter Setup is to power on
the computer, when the below message appears briefly at the
bottom of the screen during the POST (Power On Self Test),
press <Del> key.
If the message disappears before you respond and you still wish
to enter Setup, then please power off/on the board or reset the
system by shorting pin9-10 on CN6.

In Case of Problems
If, after making and saving system changes with Setup, you
discover that your computer is no longer able to boot, the Award
BIOS supports an override CMOS settings that helps you to
reset the system back to default configuration. (Please refer to
P.15 for JP2 - Clear CMOS setting.)
The Best Advice
The best advice is to alter only settings that you thoroughly
understand. In particular, DO NOT change settings in Advanced
Chipset Features unless you understand what you are doing.
The Chipset defaults have been carefully chosen by Award
Software or your system manufacturer for the best performance
and reliability. Even a seemingly small change to the Chipset
setup may cause the system to become unstable.
The displayed configuration charts in this chapter show you all
the default settings of SBC-657.

If you do not want to select drive type AUTO, other methods of
selecting the drive type are available:
1. NONE:
No drive type to be selected
2. Manual:
This will allow you to manually set the drive
type you are using in your system. (See
Below)
Mode:
Types of ACCESS: Auto, Large, CHS or LBA
Auto:
The BIOS automatically determines the optimal
mode.
CHS:
This allows the user to enter their own hardware
values
Large:
For drives that do not support LBA and have more
than 1024 cylinders.
LBA :
(Logical Block Addressing) During drive access, the
IDE controller transforms the data address described
by sector, head, and cylinder number into a physical
block address, significantly improving data transfer
rates. For drives with greater than 1024 cylinders.

Drive specifications
Here is a brief explanation of drive specifications:
Type:
The BIOS contains a table of predefined drive types.
Each defined drive type has a specified number of
cylinders, number of heads, write precompensation
factor, landing zone, and number of sectors. Drives
whose specifications do not accommodate any
predefined type are classified as type USER.
Size:
Disk drive capacity (approximate). Note that this size
is usually slightly greater than the size of a formatted
disk given by a disk-checking program.

3.6.15 Video BIOS Shadow
Software that resides in a read only memory (ROM) chip on a
device is called firmware. The Award BIOS permits shadowing
of firmware such as the system BIOS, video BIOS, and similar
operating instructions that come with some expansion peripherals such as, for example, a SCSI adaptor.
Shadowing copies firmware from ROM into system RAM, where
the CPU can read it through the 16-bit or 32-bit DRAM bus.
Firmware not shadowed must be read by the system through the
8-bit X-bus. Shadowing impoves the performance of the system
BIOS and similar ROM firmware for expansion peripherals. but
it also reduces the amount of high memory (640 KB to 1 MB)
available for loading device drivers, etc.
Enable shadowing into each section of memory separately. Many
system designers hardwire shadowing of the system BIOS and
eliminate a System BIOS Shadow option.
Video BIOS shadows into memory are C0000-C7FFF. The
remaining areas shown on the BIOS Features Setup screen may
be occupied by other expansion card firmware. If an expansion
peripheral in your system contains ROM-based firmware, you
need to know the address range the ROM occupies to shadow it
into the correct area of RAM.
The choices: Enabled(Default), Disabled.
These categories determine whether optional ROM will be copied
to RAM by 16K byte.

Programming theWatchdog Timer
SBC-657 is equipped with a watchdog
timer that resets the CPU or generates an
interrupt if processing comes to a standstill for whatever reason. This feature
ensures system reliability in industrial
stand-alone and unmanned environments.
72
SBC-657 User's Manual
Programming the watchdog timer
An on-board watchdog timer reduces the chance of disruptions
which CPLD (compact programmable logical device) interference
can cause. This is a valuable protective device for standalone or
unmanned applications. When the watchdog timer activates(CPU
processing has come to a halt), it can reset the system, or generate
an interrupt on IRQ10, IRQ11, IRQ15, and NMI. This can be set via
I/O Port 444, the functions as following:
0:
1:
2:
3:
4:
RESET
NMI
IRQ10
IRQ11
IRQ15
If you decide to program the watchdog timer, you must write data
to I/O port 443 (hex). The output data is a value timer. You can
write from 00 (hex) to FF (hex) for input second data, and the related
timer is 10 seconds to 255 seconds.
After data entry, your program must refresh the watchdog timer by
rewriting the I/O port 443 (hex) while simultaneously setting it.
When you want to disable the watchdog timer, your program
should write I/O port 80 (hex) a Hex value.
Appendix A Programming the Watchdog Timer
73
The following procedure is a sample program for the watchdog
timer:
•Type C:\DOS\Debug <ENTER>
•To start watchdog timer and set function "Reset" type;
o 444 0 <Enter>; out 444h data 0
•To input Watchdog timers time-out interval of 5 seconds type;
o 443 05 <Enter>; out 443h data 05
•To disable the watchdog timer type;
i 80 <Enter>
The time interval data of the watchdog timer is shown in binary
code (8 bits).
