2.1 Anti-static Precautions
WARNING!
Failure to take ESD precautions during the installation of the
KINO-945GSE2
may
result
in
permanent
damage
to
the
KINO-945GSE2 and severe injury to the user.
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can cause serious damage to electronic components,
including the KINO-945GSE2. Dry climates are especially susceptible to ESD. It is
therefore critical that whenever the KINO-945GSE2, 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 KINO-945GSE2, place it on an
antic-static pad. This reduces the possibility of ESD damaging the
KINO-945GSE2.

Only handle the edges of the PCB:- When handling the PCB, hold the PCB
by the edges.
2.2 Unpacking Precautions
When the KINO-945GSE2 is unpacked, please do the following:

Follow the anti-static precautions outlined in Section 762.1.

Make sure the packing box is facing upwards so the KINO-945GSE2 does not
2
fall out of the box.

Make sure all the components are present.

4.1 Anti-static Precautions
WARNING:
Failure to take ESD precautions during the installation of the
KINO-945GSE2
may
result
in
permanent
damage
to
the
KINO-945GSE2 and severe injury to the user.
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can cause serious damage to electronic components,
including the KINO-945GSE2. Dry climates are especially susceptible to ESD. It is
therefore critical that whenever the KINO-945GSE2, 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 KINO-945GSE2, place it on an
antic-static pad. This reduces the possibility of ESD damaging the
KINO-945GSE2.

Only handle the edges of the PCB:-: When handling the PCB, hold the PCB
by the edges.

4.2 Installation Considerations
NOTE:
The following installation notices and installation considerations should
be read and understood before the KINO-945GSE2 is installed. All
installation notices pertaining to the installation of the KINO-945GSE2
should be strictly adhered to. Failing to adhere to these precautions
may lead to severe damage of the KINO-945GSE2 and injury to the
person installing the motherboard.
4.2.1 Installation Notices
WARNING:
The installation instructions described in this manual should be
carefully followed in order to prevent damage to the KINO-945GSE2,
KINO-945GSE2 components and injury to the user.
Before and during the installation please DO the following:

Read the user manual:
o
The user manual provides a complete description of the KINO-945GSE2
installation instructions and configuration options.

Wear an electrostatic discharge cuff (ESD):
o
Electronic components are easily damaged by ESD. Wearing an ESD cuff
removes ESD from the body and helps prevent ESD damage.

Place the KINO-945GSE2 on an antistatic pad:
o
When installing or configuring the motherboard, place it on an antistatic
pad. This helps to prevent potential ESD damage.

4.6 Jumper Settings
NOTE:
A jumper is a metal bridge used to close
an electrical circuit. It consists of two or
three metal pins and a small metal clip
(often protected by a plastic cover) that
slides over the pins to connect them. To
CLOSE/SHORT
a
jumper
means
connecting the pins of the jumper with the plastic clip and to OPEN a
jumper means removing the plastic clip from a jumper.
Before the KINO-945GSE2 is installed in the system, the jumpers must be set in
accordance with the desired configuration. The jumpers on the KINO-945GSE2 are listed
in Table 4-1.

If the KINO-945GSE2 fails to boot due to improper BIOS settings, the clear CMOS jumper
clears the CMOS data and resets the system BIOS information. To do this, use the jumper
cap to close pins 2 and 3 for a few seconds then reinstall the jumper clip back to pins 1
and 2.
If the “CMOS Settings Wrong” message is displayed during the boot up process, the fault
may be corrected by pressing the F1 to enter the CMOS Setup menu. Do one of the
following:

Enter the correct CMOS setting

Load Optimal Defaults

Load Failsafe Defaults.
After having done one of the above, save the changes and exit the CMOS Setup menu.

4.7 Chassis Installation
4.7.1 Airflow
WARNING:
Airflow is critical to the cooling of the CPU and other onboard
components. The chassis in which the KINO-945GSE2 must have air
vents to allow cool air to move into the system and hot air to move out.
The KINO-945GSE2 must be installed in a chassis with ventilation holes on the sides
allowing airflow to travel through the heat sink surface. In a system with an individual
power supply unit, the cooling fan of a power supply can also help generate airflow
through the board surface.
NOTE:
IEI has a wide range of backplanes available. Please contact your
KINO-945GSE2 vendor, reseller or an IEI sales representative at
sales@iei.com.tw or visit the IEI website (http://www.ieiworld.com.tw)
to find out more about the available chassis.

C.1 Introduction
The DIO connector on the KINO-945GSE2 is interfaced to GPIO ports on the 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 Super I/O
chipset.

Page 137
KINO-945GSE2 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 EMIs 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. When 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 138

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