Serial Port
The Mini DP++ port is a digital display interface used to connect a display device such as
a computer monitor. It is used to transmit audio and video simultaneously. The interface,
which is developed by VESA, has the same pin assignments as the full-size DisplayPort
connector but only in a much smaller form factor with dimensions of 7.50 mm (width) ×
4.60 mm (height) × 4.99 mm (depth).
COM 1 can be used for serial communication (RS232, RS422 or RS485) or 8-bit DIO via
jumper settings. Please refer to Chapter 4 for altering this port’s function via jumper settings.
The 8-bit Digital I/O connector provides monitoring and control functions to the connected
external devices. We have built support software called EAPI that enables the functionality of
hardware components. Please contact our tech support or sales representatives for the support
software package.

Chapter 7 - BIOS Setup
Legends
Overview
The BIOS is a program that takes care of the basic level of communication between the CPU
and peripherals. It contains codes for various advanced features found in this system board.
The BIOS allows you to configure the system and save the configuration in a battery-backed
CMOS so that the data retains even when the power is off. In general, the information stored
in the CMOS RAM of the EEPROM will stay unchanged unless a configuration change has been
made such as a hard drive replaced or a device added.
It is possible that the CMOS battery will fail causing CMOS data loss. If this happens, you need
to install a new CMOS battery and reconfigure the BIOS settings.
Note:
The BIOS is constantly updated to improve the performance of the system board;
therefore the BIOS screens in this chapter may not appear the same as the actual
one. These screens are for reference purpose only.
Default Configuration
Most of the configuration settings are either predefined according to the Load Optimal Defaults
settings which are stored in the BIOS or are automatically detected and configured without requiring any actions. There are a few settings that you may need to change depending on your
system configuration.

available fields not shown on the screen. Use the up and down arrow keys to scroll through all
the available fields.
The BIOS Setup Utility can only be operated from the keyboard and all commands are keyboard commands. The commands are available at the right side of each setup screen.
Submenu
The BIOS Setup Utility does not require an operating system to run. After you power up the
system, the BIOS message appears on the screen and the memory count begins. After the
memory test, the message “Press DEL to run setup” will appear on the screen. If the message
disappears before you respond, restart the system or press the “Reset” button. You may also
restart the system by pressing the <Ctrl> <Alt> and <Del> keys simultaneously.
When ““ appears on the left of a particular field, it indicates that a submenu which contains
additional options are available for that field. To display the submenu, move the highlight to
that field and press <Enter>.
