Specifications
EPIC Architecture
In 2004, five companies collaborated to fill the void between the EBX size and the PC/104 size with a new
industry standard form factor (115mm x 165mm, or 4.5" x 6.5") called “Embedded Platform for Industrial
Computing (EPIC).” The EPIC standard principally defines physical size, mounting hole pattern, and
power connector locations. It does not specify processor type or electrical characteristics. There are
recommended connector placements for I/O, graphics, and memory expansion. This embedded SBC
standard ensures that embedded system OEMs can standardize their designs and that full featured embedded
computing solutions can be designed into even more space constrained environments than ever before.
The EPIC standard boasts the same highly flexible and adaptable system expansion as EBX, allowing easy
and modular addition of functions such as Firewire or wireless networking not usually contained in standard
product offerings. The EBX system expansion is based on popular existing industry standards, PC/104,
PC/104-Plus, and PCI-104. PC/104 places the ISA bus on compact 3.6" x 3.8" modules with selfstacking capability. PC/104-Plus adds the power of a PCI bus to PC/104 while retaining the basic form
factor, but PCI-104 expansion cards only provide the PCI Bus to the PC/104 form factor. Using PC/104
expansion cards, an EPIC board can be easily adapted to meet a variety of embedded applications. See
Figures 2-1 and 2-2.

The EPIC standard also brings stability to the mid-sized embedded board market and offers OEMs assurance
that a wide range of products will be available from multiple sources – now and in the future. The EPIC
specification is freely available to all interested companies, and may be used without licenses or royalties.

Product Overview
Product Description
The ReadyBoard 910 is a mid-sized, EPIC-compatible, high quality single-board system, which contains all
the component subsystems of a PC/AT PCI motherboard plus the equivalent of up to 4 PCI expansion
boards. The ReadyBoard 910 is based on the high-performance, high-integration, Intel® Core i3, i5 i7,
and lower-cost Celeron® CPUs, which incorporate multi cores with integrated Northbridge Graphics and
Memory Hubs (GMHs), providing high-performance processor cores, memory controllers for up to 16GB of
standard DDR3 SODIMM memory, and graphics controllers for VGA, LVDS, and DVI signals driven by
the chipset. One of these processors combined with the matching chipset provide the designer a complete
integration solution based on the EPIC form factor and Revision 2.0 of the EPIC standard.
Each ReadyBoard 910 incorporates an Intel BD82HM65 chipset for the Platform Controller Hub (PCH)
function featuring two USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, two SATA 3.0 ports, one SATA 2.0 port dedicated
for the SSD, six PCIe x1 ports, one SMBus port, one GPIO port, and one HD audio port. The SMSC Super
I/O controller, SCH3114IU-NU, adds legacy I/O functions for PS/2 keyboard and mouse interfaces and two
serial port interfaces. The ReadyBoard 910 also supports two independent Gigabit Ethernet interfaces
through PCIe x1 Ports 3 and 4, one PCI-104 interface through PCIe x1 Port 2, and one PCIe Mini Card
interface through PCIe x1 Port 6.
The ReadyBoard 910 can be expanded through the PCI-104 expansion bus to accept PCI-104 cards that
offer compact, self-stacking, modular expandability for additional system functions. The PCI-104 bus only
implements the signal set for the PCI bus and is available on the 120-pin (4 rows of 30 pins) expansion bus
connector. The PCI bus operates at 33 MHz clock speed. See Figure 2-2.
Among the many embedded enhancements on the ReadyBoard 910 that ensure embedded system operation
and application versatility are a Watchdog Timer, serial console support, battery-free boot, optional
customizable logo screen (see Sales Representative), on-board PCIe Mini Card socket, and ACPI support for
sleep states.

The ReadyBoard 910 is particularly well suited to embedded applications by meeting the size, power
consumption, temperature range, quality, and reliability demands of embedded system applications. It can be
stacked with ADLINK MiniModules™ or other PCI-104 compliant expansion boards, or it can be used as a
powerful computing engine. The ReadyBoard 910 requires only a +5V power supply, however, certain
functions such PCI-104, LVDS, fans, and PCIe Mini Card require +12V.

following method: A 10-pin header with two rows of pins, using odd/even
numbering, where pin 2 is directly across from pin 1, is noted as 10-pin, 2 rows, odd/
even (1, 2).Alternately, a 10-pin connector using consecutive numbering, where pin 6
is directly across from pin 1, is noted in this way: 10-pin, 2 rows, consecutive (1, 6).
The second number in the parenthesis is always directly across from pin-1. See

NOTE
ADLINK Technology, Inc. supports only the features/options tested and listed in
this manual. The main integrated circuits (chips) used in the ReadyBoard 910
may provide more features or options than are listed for the ReadyBoard 910,
but some of these chip features/options are not supported on the board and may
not function as specified in the chip documentation.
This chapter does not include pinout tables for standard headers and connectors
such as PCI-104, Ethernet RJ45, SATA, USB, DB9 Serial, DB15 VGA, PS/2
Keyboard and Mouse, and PCIe Mini Card. See Chapter 1 for hyperlinks to
specifications of these standard interfaces.
CPU
The ReadyBoard 910 supports six versions of the Intel® Core i CPU—the 2nd Generation i3-2330E, i52510E, and i7-2710QE, and 3rd Generation i3-3120ME, i5-3610ME, and i7-3610QE—operating at 2.2GHz,
2.5GHz, 2.1GHz, 2.4GHz, 2.7GHz, and 2.3GHz, respectively. The 3rd Generation Celeron B810, 1.6GHz is
also supported as a lower-cost model version. These CPUs integrate high-performance, 64-bit, x86 multi
Processor Cores with Memory Controllers and 3D Graphics Engines. This single chip is based on 32-nm
process technology for the 2nd Generation version and 22-nm for the 3rd Generation version and provides
an Intel Flexible Display Interface and a Direct Media Interface for high-speed connectivity to the PCH. The
CPUs also support Intel Hyper-Threading Technology (up to 4 cores, 8 threads) [except for the Celeron] and
up to 16 GB of DDR3 memory at 1066/1333 MHz for high overall performance.
Graphics
The 3rd Generation Core i CPUs provide a refresh of the seventh generation graphics core, which features a
substantial gain in performance and a decrease in power consumption. The next generation Intel Clear Video
HD Technology includes a collection of video playback and enhancement features that improve the end
user’s viewing experience including Encode/Transcode HD content, HD content playback, and superior
image quality. Other graphics features of the Core CPUs include support for DirectX 10.1, OpenGL3.0,
DirectX Video Acceleration (DXAV), Advanced Scheduler 2.0, 1.0, and XPDM.
Memory
The ReadyBoard 910 features dual-stacked SODIMM sockets for up to 16 GB of DDR3 memory. The CPU
provides an Integrated Memory Controller (IMC) with DDR3 protocols and two independent, 64-bit wide
channels each supporting one unbuffered, non-ECC SODIMM, employing up to two device ranks per
channel.

The Super I/O (SCH3114I-NU) chip provides the circuitry for the two serial ports. The Super I/O chip
provides serial port 1 through a standard DB9 connector (CN17) and serial port 2 through a 10-pin header
(CN8). The two serial ports support the following features:
•
Four individual 16550-compatible UARTs
•
Programmable word length, stop bits and parity
•
16-bit programmable baud rate generator
•
Interrupt generator
•
Loop-back mode
•
Four individual 16-bit FIFOs
•
Serial Interface

Serial Port 1 (COM0) supports RS-232/RS-485/RS-422 and full modem support

Serial Port 2 (COM1) supports RS-232/RS-485/RS-422 and full modem support
NOTE
The RS-232/RS-485/RS-422 modes are selected in BIOS Setup under the
Advanced/Super I/O Configuration menu However, the RS-232 mode is the
default (Standard) for any serial port.
RS-485 mode termination is selected with jumper header JP2 (COM0), and JP3
(COM1), when the RS-485 mode is selected in BIOS Setup.
To implement the two-wire RS-485 mode on serial ports 1 or 2, you must tie the equivalent pins together for
the selected port.
For example, on Serial Port 2, tie pin 3 to 5 and pin 4 to 6 on the Serial 2 (COM1) interface header as shown
in Figure 3-1. As an alternate, tie pin 2 to 3 and pin 7 to 8 on the DB9 connector for serial port 1 (COM0) as
shown in Figure 3-1. Refer to Table 3-4 for the specific pin signals of serial port 2. The corresponding pins
on the DB9 serial 1 connector are also available in Table 3-4.

USB Interfaces
The ReadyBoard 910 offers state-of-the-art USB 3.0 support through the PCH using PCIe x1 Port 1 and a
USB 3.0 xHCI host controller module. Features of the USB 3.0 interface include up to two downstream
ports (each independently enabled or disabled), SuperSpeed, High-Speed, and Full-Speed signals, and
support for input frequencies between 20MHz and 50MHz. An 18-pin, standard dual-port connector (CN15)
delivers the signals for two USB 3.0 ports, ideal for HDTV, set-top box, and gaming console applications.
The PCH (BD82HM65) provides a USB solution for legacy UHCI controller and EHCI controller (USB
2.0) support. The PCH contains port-routing logic that determines which controller (UHCI or EHCI) handles
the USB data signals. A 10-pin header (CN14) delivers the signals for two USB 2.0 ports.
Table 3-5 describes the pin signals for the USB 2.0 interface, which provides a 10-pin, 2-row, header with
odd/even (1, 2) pin sequence and 0.100" (2.54mm) pitch. The USB 3.0 interface provides a standard

Oops! Jumper (BIOS Recovery)
The Oops! jumper is provided in the event the BIOS settings you have selected prevent you from booting the
system. By using the Oops! jumper you can prevent the current BIOS settings in Flash from being loaded,
forcing the BIOS to use the default settings. Connect the DTR pin to the RI pin on Serial port 1 (COM0)
prior to boot up to prevent the present BIOS settings from loading. After booting with the Oops! jumper in
place, remove the Oops! jumper and go into BIOS Setup. Change the desired BIOS settings, or select the
default settings, and save changes before rebooting the system.
To convert a standard DB9 connector to an Oops! jumper, short together the DTR (4) and RI (9) pins on the
serial port DB9 connector at Serial Port 1, as shown in Figure 3-2.

not connected to a keyboard and display.
Serial Console Setup
The serial console feature is implemented by connecting a standard null modem cable or a modified serial
cable (or “Hot Cable”) between one of the serial ports, such as Serial 1, and the serial terminal or a PC with
communications software. The BIOS Setup Utility controls the serial console settings on the
ReadyBoard 910. Refer to Chapter 4, BIOS Setup for the settings of the serial console option, the serial

During the Boot process – If the operating system fails to boot in the time interval set in the BIOS, the
system will reset.
Enable the WDT in the Boot Settings of BIOS Setup. Set the WDT for a time-out interval in seconds,
between 1 and 255, in one second increments. Ensure you allow enough time for the operating system
(OS) to boot. The OS or application must tickle the WDT before the timer expires.
•
During System Operation – An application can set up the WDT hardware through a BIOS call, or by
accessing the hardware directly. Some ADLINK Board Support Packages provide an API interface to
the WDT. The application must tickle the WDT before the timer expires or the system will be reset. The
BIOS implements interrupt 15 function 0C3h to manipulate the WDT.

Power Interfaces
The ReadyBoard 910 uses various voltages onboard and externally receives +12 volts through the external
Power In (CN3) interface, which uses an 8-pin header with 0.165" (4.2 mm) pitch. The +12V is provided for
the CPU Fan, System Fan, LVDS power, PCI-104 bus, and PCIe Mini Card power. All other onboard
voltage requirements, including the CPU core voltages are met with +5 volts DC +/- 5%, derived from the
externally supplied +12 volts.
Power In
Table 3-17 lists the pin signals for Power In header (CN3), which provides 8 pins in two rows with
consecutive (1,6) pin sequence and 0.165" (4.2mm) pitch.

Power On
The signals on this header allow the ATX power supply to be turned off (soft off) from the ReadyBoard 910
by operating system (OS) control. However, if you use a non-ATX power supply, then you will not have the
soft off feature for sleep states normally provided by ATX power supplies. Use the JP4 jumper to select
Power On options (S3/S5). Table 3-18 provides the pin signal names and descriptions of the Power On
interface, which provides a 3-pin shrouded header with 0.049" (1.25mm) pitch

Power-On Button
The Power-On button turns the ReadyBoard 910 and its attached power supply to a fully on condition, if you
are using an ATX power supply. Normally—if the operating system (OS) supports sleep states—the OS will
turn off the ReadyBoard 910 and its power supply during the OS shut down process. If the OS supports sleep
states, the Power-On button will also transition the ReadyBoard and its power supply between a fully
Powered-On state, various sleep states depending on the OS control setting, and a fully Powered-Off state. If
the OS does not support sleep states, then the Power-On button only turns on or off power to the
ReadyBoard 910.
The sleep states are OS dependent and not available if your OS does not support power management based
on the ACPI standard. An OS supporting ACPI will allow the Power-On button to be configured through a
user interface.
The Power-On button is provided externally by connecting a momentary button to the Power-On button
header (JP6). See Table 3-19.

Power and Sleep States
The following information applies to the ReadyBoard 910 only if an ATX power supply is used to provide
power. If a non-ATX power supply is used, the ReadyBoard 910 is controlled only by the Power On/Off
switch on the power supply and the various sleep states are not available.
Sleep States (ACPI)
The ReadyBoard 910 supports the ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) standard, which is a
key component of certain Operating Systems’ power management. The supported features (sleep states)
listed here are only available when an ACPI-compliant OS is used for the ReadyBoard, such as Windows
2000/XP. The term “sleep” state refers to a reduced power consumption state, which can be re-started
(awakened), restoring full operation to the ReadyBoard 910.
In these various sleep states, the ReadyBoard 910 appears to be off, indicated by such things as no display on
the attached monitor and no activity for the connected CD-ROM or hard drives. However, when the
ReadyBoard 910 detects certain types of activity (i.e. power button, mouse, keyboard, or LAN activity), it
returns to a fully operational state. The type of activity detected is based on those supported by the
ReadyBoard 910.
The ReadyBoard 910 supports at least four ACPI power states, depending on the operating system used and
its ability to manage sleep states. Typically, the Power On switch is used to wake up from a sleep state, or
transition from one state to another, but this is dependent on the operating system.
•
•
1st state is normal Power-On (S0).

To go to a fully powered on state, the ReadyBoard 910 must either be powered Off (S5), or in a
sleep state (S1 or S4), and then the Power On/Off switch is pressed for less than 4 seconds
(default).

The ReadyBoard 910 can transition from this state (S0) to the various states described below,
depending on the power management capability of the OS and how it is programmed.
2nd state is a standby state (S1).
In this state, no internal operations take place except for the internal RTC (Real Time Clock) and the
contents of RAM. This typically includes no activity for the CPU, CD-ROM, or hard disk drives. The
CPU may be active, and the peripheral devices may power down if no signals occur or power to the
device(s) is not provided. The ReadyBoard 910 appears to be off including the Power-On LED.
•

Normally, to enter this sleep state, the ReadyBoard 910 must be fully powered on (S0) while the OS
transitions the ReadyBoard into this standby state (S1) under user control.

To exit this sleep state, typically the power button is used to wake up the ReadyBoard 910 to restore
full operation, including the Power-On LED. Typically, pressing the power switch for less than 4
seconds (default) will restore full operation.
3rd state is Suspend to RAM or Standby [Windows] (S3).
In this state, main memory (RAM) and the internal RTC (Real Time Clock) are the only devices where
power is maintained. This state (Suspend to RAM) stores the state of the operating system prior to
shutdown including all open applications and open documents, etc. in main memory. This allows users
to resume their work exactly where they left off just prior to entering this state (S3) when the system
restores power and the contents of main memory.
This state takes longer to restore and uses less power than S1 or S2, but if AC power is completely lost,
the contents of main memory (RAM), including any changes to documents or data stored in RAM
during S3, is also lost.
38

To enter the Suspend to RAM (S3) or Standby state, the computer must be fully powered on and the
OS transitions the computer into this sleep state under user control.

To exit this sleep state, typically pressing the Power On switch for less then 4 seconds (default) will
restore full operation.
Reference Manual
ReadyBoard 910
Chapter 3
•
Hardware
4th state is a hibernate or suspend-to-disk state (S4).
In this state, no internal operations take place, except for the internal RTC. This includes no activity for
the CPU, CD-ROM, or hard disk drives. The ReadyBoard 910 appears to be off, including the external
Power-On LED if connected. Your system will take longer to wake-up in this sleep state, however, since
your data is saved to the disk, it is more secure and should not be lost in the event of a power failure.
•

To enter a hibernate or suspend-to-disk state, the ReadyBoard 910 must be fully powered on while
the OS transitions the ReadyBoard 910 into this sleep state (S4) under user control.

To exit this sleep state, typically pressing the power switch for less than 4 seconds (default) will
restore full operation.
5th state is the normal power off or shutdown (S5).
All activity stops, except the internal clock, if there is a backup battery installed. Removing the power
cord from the power source ensures all activity is stopped, except the internal clock.

To go to a fully powered down state, the ReadyBoard 910 must either be powered on, or in a
sleep state, and then the Power On/Off switch is pressed for more than 4 seconds.

To go to a fully powered up state, press the power switch for less than 4 seconds (default) and
full operation is restored.
The OS may provide additional programming features to change the activation time for each state, and to
shutdown or transition the ReadyBoard 910 at certain times, depending on the way the OS interface is
programmed. Refer to the OS vender’s documentation for power management under the ACPI standard.
NOTE
Some operating systems use the keyboard, mouse, Wake-on-Ring (serial port),
and Wake-on-LAN (Ethernet port) as an activity to wake up the system from a
sleep state. Refer to Table 3-22 for the wake up activity conditions supported by
the ReadyBoard 910.
Wake Up Activities
The wake up events listed in Table 3-22 can be used to wake up the ReadyBoard 910 from any of the
supported sleep states mentioned above.
Table 3-22. Wake Up Activities and Conditions
Signal/Device
Condition
Power-On Button
If the Power-On button is pressed, the system will wake up from any of the
sleep states.
Ethernet Ports (2)
(LAN Ports)
The system will wake from one of the sleep states through direct addressing
or magic packets.
PS/2 Keyboard &
Mouse
If you use a PS/2 keyboard or mouse, any activity from the keyboard or
mouse could wake the system.
USB Devices
If you use a USB keyboard or mouse instead of a PS/2 device, the USB
device could wake the system.
Serial Ports (2)
If Wake On Ring is [Enabled], then Serial Ports 1 and 2 can be used to wake
the system.
