Chapter 2 Hardware Setup
To Get things ready for Hardware setup !
1. We recommend to install your CPU before any other components.
For detailed installation instructions of processor, you can also refer
to the pamphlet enclosed in your CPU package.
2. Installing a cooling fan with a good heatsink is a must for proper heat
dissipation for your CPU. Get ready an appropriate fan with heatsink
for proper installation. Improper fan and installation will damage your
CPU.
3. In case CPU Vcore, CPU clock or Frequency Ratio is adjustable on
board, please follow the instructions described in the User manual
for proper setup. Incorrect setting will cause damage to your CPU.

2-3 Memory Installation
How to tackle with the memory Modules:
• Make sure to unplug your power supply before adding or removing memory
module. Failure to do so may cause severe damage to both your main
board and the memory module.
• Pay attention to the orientation of the DIMM slots. Forcing a DIMM in a
socket improperly will damage the memory module and socket.
• Make sure you have the right type of memory module for your mainboard.
2-3.1 To Install DDR SDRAM Module for this Series :
• This series of mainboards only supports up to 3GB registered DDR
SDRAM or 1.5GB unbuffered DDR SDRAM, with 3 DDR DIMM sockets
on board. Do not insert other type of modules into these sockets.
• DDR DIMM socket has 184-pins and one notch. Insert a DDR SDRAM
vertically into the 184-pin socket with the notch matching the one in the
socket. Press the Module down in a gradual way until it surely reaches
the bottom and clicks straight up the two latches on the left and right of
the socket.
Key Point: Press the module down gradually until it has totally reached
the socket bottom and clicked up both two socket latches completely. If
any one of the latches has not turned up completely, you should unplug
the module and press it down the socket a bit more firmly.

An indicator ZD1 is designed on board. Whenever system is started or is
in STR status (Suspend to RAM), all the DIMM sockets on board will also
get powered on with the set voltage, resulting in ZD1 lighting up. This ZD1
indicator is to warn users that, whenever DIMM socket is powered, no
memory module should be removed from or added into it.

IDE cable to the primary (IDE1) or secondary (IDE2) connector on board,
and then connect the gray connector to your slave device and the black
connector to your master device. If you install two hard disks, you must
configure the second drive to Slave mode by setting its jumpers
correctly. Please refer to your hard disk documentation for the jumper
settings.

How to tackle with Jumpers:
• Do not remove the jumper when power is on. Always make sure the power
is off before changing any jumper settings. Otherwise, mainboard
could be damaged.
• In the Jumper setting diagram, all jumper pins covered with black marks
stand for closed pins by jumper caps.
2-7.1 Switch 1 CPU Clock Select
This Series of mainboards are shipped to users with a 5-DIP Switch 1,
by which user can select a CPU clock to match with the Pentium 4 processor selected on board. So users are not recommended to take Switch 1
as a tool for overclocking. It is saver and more advisable for users to
select the CPU clock as close as possible to the one marked on the selected CPU.

Advice from our Engineering Team:
CPU Overclocking should always take all other components on board into
account. No matter what Host clock your CPU has , any attempt to set
your CPU to higher clock than the host one will get no guaranty of success.
Instead, you are taking the risk of breaking the stability of your CPU as
well as the mainboard.

Jp16 is designed to support the S3 mode (Suspend to RAM) of ACPI
(Advanced Configuration and Power interface) which is usually integrated in such operating systems as Win 98se or Win 2000.
• To enable the STR function, you must first set up Jp16, and then enter
“BIOS Setup”, then “Power management Setup” to choose the item
“ACPI Suspend Type”. In this item, choose S3(STR) mode to enable
Suspend to RAM function.
• With STR enabled, you power off your system with Standby mode, and
you can reboot your system directly to the screen of power-off without
going through the reboot procedures.

These fan connectors support CPU/System/AGP/Chassis cooling fan with
+12V. When connecting the wire to FAN connectors, users should make
sure that the red wire is for the positive current and should be connected
to pin +12V, and the black wire is Ground and should be connected to
pin GND. If your mainboard has Hardware Monitor chipset on board, you
must use a specially designed fan with speed sensor to take advantage
of the monitoring function.
For fans with speed sensors, each rotation of the fan blades will send out
2 electric pulses, by which System Hardware Monitor will work out the
fan rotation speed by counting the pulses.
NOTE : 2 “Yellow” fan connectors are used on this series to mark that
they support fan speed sensor function. The other two white fan connectors
do not support sensor function.

This connector connects to a LAN card with a Wake On LAN output. The
connector powers up the system when it receives a wake-up packet or
signal through the LAN card.
This feature requires that Wake On LAN feature is enabled in the BIOS
setting called “Power Management Setup” and that your system must
be on ATX power supply with at least 720mA / +5V standby power.

• Both ISA and PCI expansion cards may require IRQs. System IRQs are
available to cards installed in the ISA expansion bus first, then any
remaining IRQs are available to PCI cards. Currently, there are two types
of ISA cards.
• The original ISA expansion card design, now referred to as “Legacy” ISA
card, requires you to configure the card’s jumpers manually and then install
it in any available slot on the ISA bus. To see a map of your used and free
IRQs in Windows 98, the Control Panel in My Computer, contains a
System icon, which gives you a Device Manager tab. Double-Clicking on a
specific hardware device gives you a Resources tab which shows the
Interrupt number and address. Double-Clicking Computers to see all the
interrupts and addresses for your system. Make sure that each ISA device
should be assigned to one IRQ respectively. If ISA device share IRQ with
any other device, your computer will easily get into trouble.

Drivers, Utilities and Software Installation
• Support CD:
This series of mainboards will always be shipped with a Support CD
which contains those necessary driver files, Application Softwares and
some helpful utilities. It is a user-friendly, auto-run CD which will open
itself up in a CD-ROM automatically.
• Contents of Support CD:
For this series, user will be able to find in the Support CD the following
drivers and utilities supported by Chipset VIA Apollo P4X266:
1. VIA 4-in-1 Drivers;
2. AC’97 Drivers;
3. Hardware Monitor Utility;
• Optional Floppy Diskette:
For SL-85DRV+ and SL-85DRV+-X, a floppy diskette containing Promise RAID Drivers will also be added to the package for the IDE RAID
setup.
This chapter is devoted to describing the installations of all these essential
drivers and utilities on Windows 9X, Windows ME and Windows 2000. The
installation procedures for all these operating sistems are programed into
an auto-run mode. What users have to do is read and follow the pop-up
instructions to carry out the installation. We therefore take the installation
on Windows 98 as the general illustration hereby. On occasion of RAID
Drivers installation where different status of your operating systems requires different installation procedures, we also insert respective installation procedures for various operating systems.
The priority of driver installation should also be noted. Users are recommended to take the following installation order:
3-1 Open Support CD and choose your drivers
3-2 4-in-1 Drivers Installation
3-3 AC’97 Audio CODEC Drivers Installation
3-4 Hardware Monitor Utility Installation

Chapter 4 BIOS Setup
THE BIOS
• BIOS stands for Basic Input and Output System. It was once called
ROM BIOS when it was stored in a Read-Only Memory(ROM) chip
Now manufacturers would like to store BIOS in EEPROM which means
Electrically Erasable Programmable Memory. BIOS used in this series
of mainboard is stored in EEPROM, and is the first program to run when
you turn on your computer.
• BIOS performs the following functions:
1. Initializing and testing hardware in your computer (a process called
“POST”, for Power On Self Test).
2. Loading and running your operating system.
3. Helping your operating system and application programs manage
your PC hardware by means of a set of routines called BIOS RunTime Service.
This Chapter includes the following topics :
4-1 About BIOS Setup
4-2 To run BIOS Setup
4-3 About CMOS
4-4 The POST (Power On Self Test)
4-5 To upgrade BIOS
4-6 BIOS Setup
51
Series SL-85DRV
4-1 About BIOS Setup
• BIOS setup is an interactive BIOS program that you need to run when:
1. Changing the hardware of your system. (For example: installing a
new Hard Disk etc.)
2. Modifying the behavior of your computer. (For example: changing
the system time or date, or turning special features on or off etc.)
3. Enhancing your computer’s behavior. (For example: speeding up
performance by turning on shadowing or cache)
4-2 To run BIOS Setup
• First access BIOS setup menu by pressing < DEL > key after “POST” is
complete ( before OS is loaded ). BIOS will then display the following
message:
Press “DEL” to enter “SETUP”
4-3 About CMOS
• CMOS is the memory maintained by a battery. CMOS is used to
store the BIOS settings you have selected in BIOS Setup. CMOS
also maintains the internal clock. Every time you turn on your
computer, the BIOS Looks into CMOS for the settings you have
selected and configures your computer accordingly. If the battery
runs out of power, the CMOS data will be lost and POST will issue
a “CMOS invalid” or “CMOS checksum invalid” message. If this
happens, you have to replace the battery and do some proper settings in
BIOS Setup.
4-4 The POST ( Power On Self Test )
• POST is an acronym for Power On Self Test. This program will test all
things the BIOS does before the operating system is started. Each of
POST routines is assigned a POST code, a unique number which is
sent to I/O port 080h before the routine is executed.
52
Chapter 4 BIOS Setup
4-5 To upgrade BIOS
• System BIOS is incorporated into a Flash memory component.
Flash BIOS allows user to upgrade BIOS without the need to
replace an EPROM component.
• The Upgrade Utility can be loaded on a floppy diskette to execute
saving, verifying, and updating the system BIOS.
The Upgrade Utility can also be run from a hard disk drive or a network
drive.
4-5.1 Before Upgrading BIOS
• It is highly recommended that you save a copy of the original
mainboard BIOS along with a Flash EPROM Programming utility
(AWDFLASH.EXE) to a bootable floppy disk so that you can reinstall
the BIOS when needed.
4-5.2 Upgrade Process
• Normally, to upgrade BIOS is unnecessary if the system is working fine
Users should only upgrade the BIOS when you experience incompatible
problems or need to create new features.
• “AWDFLASH.EXE” is a Flash EPROM Programming utility that up
dates the BIOS by uploading a new BIOS file to the programmable
flash ROM on the mainboard. This program only works in DOS
environment, the utility can not be executed in win95/98, ME, NT
or WINDOWS 2000 environment.
• Please follow the steps below for upgrading the system BIOS:
Step 1. Please visit the board maker’s website, download latest BIOS file
and award flash utility “AWDFLASH.EXE”. The BIOS file format will be *.bin,
of which “ * ” stands for the specific BIOS file name.
Step 2. Create a bootable diskette. Then copy the BIOS file and award flash
utility “AWDFLASH.EXE” into the diskette.
Step 3. Insert the diskette into drive A, reboot your system and boot from
the diskette.
53
Series SL-85DRV
Step 4. Type awdflash *.bin /sn/py/cc and then press <Enter> to run
BIOS upgrade program. (*.bin depends on your mainboard model and
version code. Instead of typing “*”, you should type specific file name for
your specific mainboard).
Step 5. Please press <F1> or <F10> to exit or reset your system.
Warning ! If the message “ Write Fail ” appears while Award “FLASH
MEMORY WRITER” is verifying Flash memory, just repeat the process. Please
DO NOT reset or turn off the system. If the award memory flash utility is not
able to update the BIOS successfully, your system may not be able to boot
up.
Step 6. You will need a message “CMOS checksum error-Default loaded”
during booting the system. Press <Del> to run CMOS setup utility, then reload
“LOAD SETUP DEFAULTS” or “Load Optimized Defaults” and save this
change.
The parameters of AWDFLASH.EXE
/sn: No original BIOS backup
/py: Program flash memory
/cc: Clear CMOS data (and update data automatically) after programming
Users can type AWDFLASH /? to get further details about the parameters. Incorrect
usage of the parameter will damage the BIOS information, so we strongly
recommend user to leave parameters alone unless you fully understand their

<F7>: Load all options with the Setup default values.
3. Press <ESC> to return to the Main Menu when you finish setting up all
items. The following item descriptions are provided as a quick guide to
your setup.
Virus Warning When enabled, you receive a warning message if a
program (specifically, a virus) attempts to write to
the boot sector or the partition table of the hard disk
drive.
You should then run an antivirus program. Keep in
mind that this feature protects only the boot sector,
not the entire hard drive.
NOTE: Many disk diagnostic programs that access the boot sector
table can trigger the virus warning message. If you plan to run such a
program, we recommend that you disable the virus warning.
CPU L1 & L2 Cache Cache memory is additional memory that is much
faster than conventional DRAM (system memory).
CPUs from 486-type up contain internal cache
memory (L1), and most, but not all, modern PCs
have additional (external) cache memory (L2).
When the CPU requests data, the system transfers
the requested data from the main DRAM into cache
memory, for faster access by the CPU.

CPU L2 Cache ECC When you select Enabled, it will speed up memory
Checking checking when the external cache contains ECC
SRAMs.

Boot Up Floppy Seek When enabled, the BIOS tests (seeks) floppy drives
to determine whether they have 40 or 80 tracks. Only
360-KB floppy drives have 40 tracks; drives with
270KB, 1.2MB, and 1.44MB capacity all have 80
tracks. Because very few modern PCs have 40-track
floppy drives, we recommend that you set this field
to disabled to save time.

IRQ Activity Monitor- The following is a list of IRQ’s (Interrupt Requests),
ing which can be exempted much as the COM ports
and LPT ports above can. When an I/O device wants
to gain the attention of the operating system, it signals this by causing an IRQ to occur. When the operating system is ready to respond to the request, it
interrupts itself and performs the service. When set
On, activity will neither prevent the system from going into a power management mode nor awaken it.

Choices: 2.5V ~ 2.8V in 0.1v stepping.
Auto Detect To reduce the occurrence of electromagnetic interDIMM/PCI CLK ference (EMI), the BIOS detects the presence or
absence of components in DIMM and PCI slots and
turns off system clock generator pulses to empty
slots.
Spread Spetrum When the system clock generator pulses, the extreme values of the pulse generate excess EMI.
Enabling pulse spectrum spread modulation
changes the extreme values from spikes to flat
curves, thus reducing EMI. This benefit may in some
cases be outweighed by problems with timing-critical devices, such as a clock-sensitive SCSI device.
CPU Clock This items allows users to adjust CPU frequency.
CPU Ratio This item allows you to select the CPU ratio, if CPU
clock Ratio is locked, the function will have no effect.

5-1 Creating Your Disk Array
To create your disk array, you have to open the FastBuild Utility, which
should have already been built in your system BIOS through the Promise
Controller. You can create two types of array with the help of FastBuild
Utility.
(1) An array for Performance in Striping type with 1 or 2 drives (or called
RAID 0).
(2) An array for Data Security in Mirroring type with 2 drives treated as one
disk array (or called RAID 1).
WARNING : To create a Security array using an existing hard drive,
backup any necessary data. Failure to follow this could result in data
loss.

(1) You may use a drive that is containing data or a bootable O/S.
Then you will need another new drive of identical or larger
storage capacity.
(2) Backup any necessary data before proceeding. Failure to follow
this accepted PC practice could result in data loss.
(3) If you wish to include your current bootable drive holding Window
NT 4.x or Windows 2000 O/S as part of a bootable Mirroring
(RAID 1) array on your FastTrak100-Lite controller , you SHOULD
first install the Windows NT4 or 2000 driver software to this drive
while it is still attached to your system hard drive controller (e.g.
IDE1/IDE2). For all other Operating Systems except Win NT4.0
and 2000, you can proceed with your hard driver(s) connected
to IDE3/DIE4.
1. Boot your system with FastTrak100-Lite Controller enabled by JP12
and your hard drive(s) connected to IDE3/IDE4. Suppose this is
the first time to create a Disk Array. The Promise BIOS on board with
FastBuild Utility built in will scan the IDE devices and display the result
as below:

5-2.7 Adding Fault Tolerance to an Existing Drive
FastTrak100-Lite will create a mirroring array using an existing system drive
with data. You must assign the existing drive and another drive of same or
larger capacity to the Mirroring array. The BIOS will send the existing data
to the new blank drive.
WARNING :
• Backup any necessary data before proceeding. Failure to follow this
practice will result in data loss.
• If you wish to include your current bootable drive using Windows NT
4.x or Window 2000 operating system as part of a bootable Mirrored
(RAID 1) array on your FastTrak100-Lite, do NOT connect the hard
drive to the FastTrak100-Lite Controller yet. You MUST install the
drive of Fast Trak100-Lite Controller first (see Section 5-3) to this
drive while it is still attached to your existing hard drive controller. For
all other Operating System proceed like here.
1. After assigning the drives to a Mirroring array, press <Ctrl-Y> key to
save your selection. The window below will appear.
Do you want the disk image to be duplicated to anther? (Yes/No)

5-2.8 Making a FastTrak100-Lite Disk Array Bootable
W A R N I N G : In order for you to boot from an array on the
FastTrak100-Lite, your PC or server must be configured in the CMOS
Setup to use the FastTrak100-Lite as a bootable device (versus the
on board controller or another add-in card). This option is not available
if the FastTrak100-Lite is being used as a secondary controller.

The system will now recognize this array as the first array seen.
5. The system will then use this bootable array as the (fixed) boot C: drive.
NOTE: The bootable array must contain your configured operating
system.
5-2.9 Creating a “Hot” Spare Drive for Mirroring Arrays
For automatic rebuilds of a mirroring array, attach an extra “spare” drive to
the FaskTrak100-Lite. Drives that are not assigned to an array and are the
same size or larger than the original will be used for the automatic rebuild.
This is performed in the background under all supported operating systems,
except DOS. At a later time, the system can be turned off and the failed
drive can be physically removed.
109
Series SL-85DRV
5-2.10 How FastTrak100-Lite Orders Arrays
During startup, the disk arrays on the FastTrak100-Lite are recognized in
this order: 1) The array set to bootable in the FastBuildTM Setup, and 2) the
Array number (i.e. Array 0, Array 1 ...). This would involve determining
which drive letters will be assigned to each disk array.
5-2.11 How FastTrak100-Lite Saves Array Information
All disk array data are saved into the reserved sector on each array member.
Promise suggests that users record their disk array information for future
reference.
Another feature of the FastTrak100-Lite disk array system is to recognize
drive members event if drives are moved between different FastTrak100Lite card connectors. Since each drive’s array data identifies itself to the
array, it is possible to move or swap drives without modifying the array
setup. This is valuable when adding drives, or during a rebuild.
5-2.12 Deleting An Array
The Delete Array <4> Menu option allows for deletion of disk array
assignments. This is not the same as deleting data from the drives
themselves. If you delete an array by accident (and before it be used
again), the array can normally be recovered by defining the array identically as deleted array (by Using Auto Setup).
WARNING: Deleting an exiting disk array could result in its data loss.
Make sure to record all array information including the array type, the
disk members, and stripe block size in case you wish to undo a deletion.

APPENDIX
Appendix-3 Technical Terms
AC’97
AC’97 is a device designed to include a digital processor for modem and
an audio CODEC for analog I/O. These two parts are linked together by
AC’97 link bus. Putting the digital processor into the main system chipset
will reduce the cost of sound/modem onboard solution.
ACPI (Advanced Configuration & Power Interface)
ACPI is developed together by Intel, Microsoft and Toshiba. This
interface provides a channel of management of the PC system and its
hardware such as CPU and BIOS, pushing the PC power management to a
more advanced and user-friendly level.
AGP (Accelerated Graphic Port)
AGP is a bus interface targeted for high-performance 3D graphics. AGP
takes advantage of both rising and falling edge of the 66MHz clock. For
2X AGP, the data transfer rate is 66MHz x 4byte x 2 = 528MB/s. AGP
4X mode is 66MHz x 4byte x 4 = 1056MB/s.
AMR (Audio/Modem Riser)
AMR is an interface to connect the CODEC circuit of AC’97 sound/
modem solution to the mainboard through an AMR card and an AMR
connector.
APM (Advanced Power Management)
APM is developed by Intel and Microsoft , intending for PC power
management through the system BIOS. Through APM, the PC power
consumption can be reduced to 5W or lower.
ATA (AT Attachment), ATA/66, ATA/100
ATA is the specification of disk drive interface, that integrates the
controller on the disk drive itself with the IDE technology.
ATA/66 uses both rising edge and falling edge to provide a data transfer
rate 16.6MB/s x4 = 66MB/s. To use ATA/66, you need special ATA/66
IDE cable.
ATA/100 also uses both rising edge and falling edge as ATA/66, but clock
cycle time is reduced to 40ns. The data transfer rate is (1/40ns) x 2 bytes x
2 = 100MB/s. To use ATA/100, you need special 80-wire IDE cable, the
same as ATA/66.
127
SeriesSL-85DRV
ATAPI (AT Attachment Packet Interface)
This is the exension of the EIDE (extended IDE) that enables the interface
to support CD-ROM players and tape drives.
BIOS (Basic Input/Output System)
BIOS is a set of assembly routine/program that resides in EPROM or
Flash ROM. BIOS controls Input/output devices and other hardware
devices of the mainboard. Generally, operation system and drivers will
access BIOS before accessing hardware devices so as to enhance the
portability of the hardware devices.
Bus Master IDE (DMA mode)
An IDE interface is an interface for mass storage devices, in which the
controller is integrated into the disk or CD-ROM itself. To reduce the
workload of the CPU, the bus master IDE device transfers data from/to
memory without interrupting CPU, and releases CPU to operate
concurrently while data is transferring between memory and IDE device.
You need the bus master IDE driver and the bus master IDE HDD to
support bus master IDE mode.
CAS (Column Address Strobe)
CAS is a technology of DRAM writes and reads. The number of clock
cycles of the CAS signals is depending on the DRAM timing.
CNR (Communication and Networking Riser)
CNR interface provides a cost reducing method of implementing LAN,
home networking, DSL, USB, wireless, audio and modem subsystems
through a CNR card and a CNR connector.
CODEC (Coder and Decoder)
Normally, CODEC means a circuit that can do digital to analog
conversion and vice versa. It is part of AC’97 sound/modem solution.
DDR (Double Data Rated) SDRAM
DDR SDRAM essentially doubles the memory speed of SDRAMs
without increasing the clock frequency.
DIMM (Dual In Line Memory Module)
DIMM socket is built with a 168-pin assignment and supports 64-bit data.
DIMM can be single or double sided. The golden finger signals on each
side of the module are different, and that is why it is called Dual In Line.
Almost all DIMMs are made with SDRAM now, which operate at 3.3V.
Some old DIMMs are made by FPM/EDO and only operate at 5V.
128
APPENDIX
DMA (Direct Memory Access)
Channel for communications between memory and surrounding devices.
ECC (Error Checking and Correction)
The ECC algorithm has the ability to detect double-bit error and
automatically correct single-bit error while parity mode can only detect
single-bit error.
ECP (Enhanced Communication Port)
ECP is a technology designed to improved I/O for parallel ports.
EPP (Enhanced Parallel Port)
EPP is a standard that supports data transfer rates of up to 500 kps for
parallel printers
EDO (Extended Data Output) Memory
Unlike traditional FPM (Fast Page Mode) memory that tri-states the
memory output data to start the pre-charge activity, EDO DRAM holds
the memory data valid until the next memory access cycle, which is
similar to pipeline effect in reducing one clock state.
EEPROM (Electronic Erasable Programmable ROM)
Both EEPROM and Flash ROM can be re-programmed by electronic
signals, but the interface technology is different. Size of EEPROM is
much smaller than flash ROM. BIOS is now generally stored in
EEPROM or Flash ROM.
EPROM (Erasable Programmable ROM)
Traditional mainboard stores BIOS codes in EPROM which can only be
erased by ultra-violet (UV) light. If BIOS has to be updated, you need to
remove EPROM from mainboard, clear data by UV light, re-program, and
then insert it back to socket.
FC-PGA (Flip Chip-Pin Grid Array)
FC means Flip Chip, while FC-PGA is a new package of Intel for
Pentium III CPU. It is compatible with SKT370 socket, but requires
mainboard to add some signals on socket 370.
Flash ROM
Flash ROM can be re-programmed by electronic signals. It is easier for
BIOS to upgrade by a flash utility, but it is also easier to be infected by
virus. Because of increase of new functions, BIOS size is increased from
64KB to 256KB (2M bit) or more.
129
SeriesSL-85DRV
FSB (Front Side Bus)
FSB is the data channel connecting the Processor to chipset, RAM,
mainboard buses, AGP socket etc. Its speed is in terms of MHz and is
talked to as FSB clock:
FSB Clock means CPU external bus clock.
CPU internal clock = CPU FSB Clock x CPU Clock Ratio
IEEE 1394
IEEE 1394 is a low-cost digital transfer interface with transfer rate at 100,
200 or 400 Mbps. It provides solutions of connecting digital television
devices and Serial Bus Management. There are two type of IEEE 1394
data transfer: asynchronous and isochronous. Isochronous data channels
provide guaranteed data transport at a pre-determined rate. This is
especially important for time-critical multimedia data where just-in-time
delivery eliminates the need for costly buffering.
Parity Bit
The parity bit mode of error detection uses 1 parity bit for each byte.
Normally it is even parity mode, that is, each time the memory data is
updated, parity bit will be adjusted to have even count “1” for each byte.
Next time when memory is read with odd number of “1”, the parity error
is occurred and this is called single bit error detection.
PC-100 DIMM
SDRAM DIMM that supports 100MHz CPU FSB bus clock.
PC-133 DIMM
SDRAM DIMM that supports 133MHz CPU FSB bus clock.
PC-1600 or PC-2100 DDR SDRAM
PC-1600 DDR SDRAM with a 64-bit data bus doubles the data transfer
rate of PC100 SDRAM and hence provides data transfer bandwidth up to
100x64/8x2=1600MB/s. PC2100 DDR SDRAM doubles the data transfer
rate of PC-133 and hence provides data transfer bandwidth up to 133x64/
8x2=2100MB/s.
PCI (Peripheral Component Interface) Bus
A high speed data channel for the internal connection of peripheral
devices and the computer system through a PCI expansion card.
PnP (Plug and Play)
The PnP specification suggests a standard register interface for both BIOS
and operating system (such as Windows 95). These registers are used by
BIOS and operating system to configure system resource and prevent any
130
APPENDIX
conflicts. PnP BIOS or operating system will automatically allocate the
IRQ/DMA/Memory. Currently, almost all the PCI cards and most ISA
cards are already PnP compliant.
POST (Power-On Self Test)
The BIOS self-test procedure after power-on. It is generally the first or
the second program shown on your monitor screen during system boot.
RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks)
A group of hard disks set up in PC system for data fault tolerance and
better performance. RAID is usually more used in servers than in personal
computers. Different level of RAID stands for different function and
performance:
Level 0 provides data striping or spreading out blocks of files across
multiple disks, and so improvement of performance but no fault
tolerance.
Level 1 provides disk mirroring, and so data backup.
Level 3 provides a dedicated disk for error correction of data, and so
better performance and some fault tolerance.
RAS (Row Address Strobe)
RAS is a technology that DRAM writes and reads to the Row addresses,
while a CAS (Column Address Strobe) signal is used to validate the
column address. The signals are generally sent CAS before RAS.
(in Network field, RAS stands for Remote Access Services).
RDRAM (Rambus DRAM)
Rambus DRAM is a memory technology that uses large burst mode data
transfer of up to 1.6GHz. It is import to know that RDRAM technology
helps set up a system level improvement, not just a component upgrade.
RIMM (Rambus Inline Memory Module)
RIMM is built with a 184-pin architecture module that supports RDRAM
memory technology. A RIMM memory module may contain up to
maximum of 16 RDRAM devices.
SDRAM (Synchronous DRAM)
SDRAM is one of the Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM)
technologies that allow DRAM to use the same clock as the CPU host
clock (EDO and FPM are asynchronous and do not have clock signal).
SDRAM comes in 64-bit 168-pin DIMM and operates at 3.3V.
131
SeriesSL-85DRV
SIMM (Single In Line Memory Module)
SIMM socket is only 72-pin, and is only single side. The golden finger
signals on each side of PCB are identical. That is why it is called Single
In Line. SIMM is made of FPM or EDO DRAM and supports 32-bit data.
SIMM is phased out in current mainboard design.
SPD (Serial Presence Detect)
SPD is a small ROM or EEPROM device resided on the DIMM or
RIMM. Memory module information such as DRAM timing and chip
parameters can be stored into SPD so that BIOS can access it and use it to
decide best timing for this DIMM or RIMM.
UART (Universal Asynchronous Receiver/transmitter)
UART is built in a chip that controls the data sent to and received from a
serial port. A 16550 UART is now standard in most PCs, and supports
modem speed up to 57,600 bps and beyond and direct connect speed of
115,200 bps. Many UARTs have built-in errors in the internal code and
just do not work correctly with many external modems. UART is also
found as the serial interface on internal modem.
Ultra DMA
Ultra DMA (or, more accurately, Ultra DMA/33) is a protocol for
transferring data at 33.3MB/s between a hard disk drive through the
computer’s data path (or bus) to the computer’s random access memory
(RAM). The transfer data is twice as fast as the previous Direct Access
Memory (DMA) interface. The latest Ultra DMA has advanced to Ultra
DMA/66 and Ultra DMA/100.
16.6MB/s x2 = 33MB/s
16.6MB/s x4 = 66MB/s
16.6MB/s x6 = 100MB/s
USB (Universal Serial Bus)
USB is a 4-pin serial peripheral bus that is capable of cascading low/
medium speed peripherals (less than 10Mbit/s) such as keyboard, mouse,
joystick, scanner, printer and modem.
132
APPENDIX
VCM (Virtual Channel Memory)
NEC’s Virtual Channel Memory (VCM) is a new DRAM core
architecture that dramatically improves the memory system’s ability to
service multimedia requirements. VCM increases memory bus efficiency
and performance of any DRAM technology by providing a set of fast
static registers between the memory core and I/O pins. Using VCM
technology results in reduced data access latency and reduced power
consumption.
VRM (Voltage regulator Module)
This is a small module installed on a mainboard to regulate the voltage
fed to the processor on board. Voltage regulator can be built on board in
various way. VRM is a socketed type of regulator module which is easier
to change when needed.
Zero Wait State
When memory is operating at its fastest speed in its course of fetching
and yielding data, it allows no “no-op” cycle and is called in a zero wait
state. On the other hand, a memory is in a wait state , after it gets a
command to fetch data, it waits for one , two or more cycles to assure that
the expected data is in the buffer.
ZIP file
Zip file is a compressed file with a reduced file size.
Zoom
To zoom is to make a window or screen larger or smaller in a Graphical
User Interface of a computer system. Usually, to “zoom in” means to
enlarge, and to “zoom out” means to reduce size.
