Introduction
If your requirements for a single board computer consist of a half-sized
footprint, dual Ethernet, pure PCI interface and Intel quality logic
chipset, then SBC-659 is the solution. This half-sized single board
computer is ideal for internet data access server.
The dual Ethernet socket ensures consistent high server throughput
and transparent backup connections in corporate servers. Two RJ-45
connectors controlled by two separate chipsets, Intel 815E and Intel
82559GD both offering 10/100Base Ethernet interface.
The processors used on this single board computer may vary, however
to acquire the full potential of this embedded computer we suggest
Intel Celeron or Pentium III offering 300~766MHz (With system bus
frequencies of 66 MHz), 450-850 MHz (With system bus frequencies of
100MHz), or 533-1GHz (With system bus frequencies of 133MHz). The
logic chipset onboard is entirely Intel, controlling the LCD, LAN and
audio functions.
This half-sized board features our first built in audio interface, supporting microphone in, line in/out, speaker out and CD in capabilities.
Codec job tasking are performed by ALC 200 chip. The VGA has a
display memory size of 4MB, supporting non-interlaced CRT and up to
18/36-bit LCD through DVI/DVO module.
On the solder side we offer a 144-pin SODIMM socket providing a
maximum of 256MB of memory. A compact flash connector is provided
onboard. For expansion modules a PC/104 + connector is integrated
into this half-sized card.
SBC-659 supports one IDE devise, dual floppy disk, four USB ports
onboard, two RS-232 serial ports and of which one can be configured
as RS-232/422/485. The single bi-directional parallel ports can support
SPP, ECP and EPP modes. The standard ATX power connector enables
this half sized SBC to be operated without a backplane if necessary.

Installation
This chapter describes how to set up the
main board hardware, including instructions on setting jumpers and connecting
peripherals, switches, and indicators. Be
sure to read all the safety precautions
before you begin the installation procedure.
Chapter 2 Installation 9
Safety precautions
Warning! Always completely disconnect the power cord
from your chassis whenever you are working on it.
Do not make connections while the power is on
because sensitive electronic components can be
damaged by the sudden rush of power. Only
experienced electronics personnel should open
the PC chassis.
Caution!
Always ground yourself to remove any static
charge before touching the CPU card. Modern
electronic devices are very sensitive to static
electric charges. Use a grounding wrist strap at all
times. Place all electronic components on a
static-dissipative surface or in a static-shielded
bag when they are not in the chassis.
Removing the CPU
The SBC-659 all-in-one CPU module supports most Pentium III/
Celeron or 586 CPUs. The system's performance depends on the
CPU you choose. You can install or upgrade the CPU in the board's
PGA socket by following the procedures outlined below. If your
system has an existing CPU, you need to remove it before installing
the new CPU.
Removing a CPU
1. Disconnect power from the chassis, and unplug all connections
to the CPU card. Then, remove the CPU card from the chassis
by following the instructions in the user's manual for your
chassis.
2. Lift the CPU out of the PGA socket. The old chip may be
difficult to remove. You may find spray chip lubricant, designed
for pin-grid-array (PGA) devices, and a chip puller helpful.
These are available at electronics hobbyists' supply stores.
10 SBC-659 User Manual
Installing A CPU
To install the CPU, follow the instructions that came with it. If no
documentation was provided, the general procedures for installing
a CPU are outlined below:
1. Lubricate the pins on the CPU with lubricant for PGA devices.
This makes the CPU slide in much easier and greatly reduces
the chance of damaging the pins and other components.
2. Carefully align the CPU so that it is parallel to the socket. Make
sure that the notch on the corner of the CPU matches the notch
on the inside of the socket.
3. Gently push the CPU into the socket. There will probably be a
small gap between the CPU and the socket even when it is fully
seated. DO NOT USE EXCESSIVE FORCE!
When you install a new CPU, you may have to adjust other
settings on the board, such as CPU type, CPU clock, and PCI
speed, to accommodate it. Make sure that the settings are correct
for your CPU. Improper settings may damage the CPU.
Chapter 2 Installation 11
Setting jumpers
You configure your card to match the needs of your application by
setting jumpers. A jumper is the simplest kind of 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 you connect the pins with the clip. To “open” a
jumper you 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.

The jumper settings are schematically depicted in this manual as
follows:

Open
Closed
Closed 2-3
A pair of needle-nose pliers may be helpful when working with
jumpers.
If you have any doubts about the best hardware configuration for
your application, contact your local distributor or sales representative before you make any changes.
Generally, you simply need a jumper to make most connections.
12 SBC-659 User Manual
Installing SODIMM
Supplementary information about DIMM
Your SBC-659 can accept both regular and PC-100/133 SDRAM
DIMM Module. Onboard one 144-pin SODIMM socket supports
up to 256MB of memory.
Single-sided modules are typically 16 or 128MB; double-sided
modules are usually 32 or 256 MB.
Memory Installation Procedures
To install SODIMM, first make sure you are holding the SODIMM
memory module at a 45 degree angle. Slowly slide the SODIMM
module along the plastic guides on both ends of the socket. Then
press the module right down into the socket, until you hear a click.
This is when the two handles have automatically locked the
memory module into the correct position of the SODIMM socket.
To remove the memory module, just push both handles outward,
and the memory module will be ejected by the mechanism in the
socket.

Award BIOS Setup
This chapter describes how to configure
the BIOS for the system.
40
SBC-659 User Manual
Starting setup
The Award BIOS is immediately activated when you first turn on
the computer. The BIOS reads system configuration information in
CMOS RAM and begins the process of checking out the system
and configuring it through the power-on self test (POST).
When these preliminaries are finished, the BIOS seeks an operating
system on one of the data storage devices (hard drive, floppy drive,
etc.). The BIOS launches the operating system and hands control of
system operations to it.
During POST, you can start the Setup program in one of two ways:
1.By pressing Del immediately after switching the system on, or
2.By pressing Del or pressing Ctrl-Alt-Esc when the following
message appears briefly at the bottom of the screen during POST:
TO ENTER SETUP BEFORE BOOT PRESS DEL KEY
If the message disappears before you respond and you still wish to
enter Setup, restart the system to try again by turning it OFF then
ON or pressing the RESET button on the system case. You may
also restart by simultaneously pressing Ctr-Alt-Del. If you do not
press the keys at the correct time and the system does not boot, an
error message appears and you are again asked to
PRESS F1 TO CONTINUE, DEL TO ENTER SETUP

Press F1 to pop up a small help window that describes the appropriate keys to use and the possible selections for the highlighted
item. To exit the Help Window press Esc or the F1 key again.
In Case of Problems
If, after making and saving system changes with Setup, you
discover that your computer no longer is able to boot, the Award
BIOS supports an override to the CMOS settings that resets your
system to its default configuration.
You can invoke this override by immediately pressing Insert; when
you restart your computer. You can restart by either using the ON/
OFF switch, the RESET button or by pressing Ctrl-Alt-Delete.
The best advice is to alter only settings that you thoroughly
understand. In particular, do not change settings in the Chipset
screen without a good reason. 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.

by pressing F1.
Date and Time Configuration
The BIOS determines the day of the week from the other date
information. This field is for information only.
Press the left or right arrow key to move to the desired field (date,
month, year). Press the PgUp/- or PgDn/+ key to increment the
setting, or type the desired value into the field.
The time format is based on the 24-hour military-time clock. For
example, 1 p.m. is 13:00:00 hours. Press the left or right arrow key
to move to the desired field. Press the PgUp/- or PgDn/+ key to
increment the setting, or type the desired value into the field.
HARD DISKS
The BIOS supports up to four IDE drives. This section does not
show information about other IDE devices, such as a CD-ROM
drive, or about other hard drive types, such as SCSI drives.
NOTE: We recommend that you select type AUTO for all drives.
46
SBC-659 User Manual
The BIOS can automatically detect the specifications and optimal
operating mode of almost all IDE hard drives. When you select
type AUTO for a hard drive, the BIOS detects its specifications
If you do not want to select drive type AUTO, other methods of
selecting the drive type are available:
1.Match the specifications of your installed IDE hard drive(s) with
the preprogrammed values for drive types 1 through 45.
2.Select USER and enter values into each drive parameter field.
3.Use the IDE HDD AUTO DETECTION function in Setup.
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.
Cyls: Number of cylinders
Head: Number of heads
Precomp: Write precompensation cylinder
Landz: Landing zone
Sector: Number of sectors
Mode: Auto, Normal, Large, or LBA
- Auto: The BIOS automatically determines the optimal mode.
- Normal: Maximum number of cylinders, heads, and sectors
supported are 1024, 16, and 63.
- Large: For drives that do not support LBA and have more
than 1024 cylinders.
Chapter 3 Award BIOS Setup
47
- 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.

Halt On
During the power-on-self-test (POST), the computer stops if the
BIOS detects a hardware error. You can tell the BIOS to ignore
certain errors during POST and continue the boot-up process.
These are the selections:
No errors: POST does not stop for any errors.
All errors If: the BIOS detects any nonfatal error, POST
stops and prompts you to take corrective action.
All, But Keyboard: POST does not stop for a keyboard
error, but stops for all other errors
All, But Diskette: POST does not stop for diskette drive
errors, but stops for all other errors.
All, But Disk/Key: POST does not stop for a keyboard or
disk error, but stops for all other errors.
Memory
You cannot change any values in the Memory fields; they are only
for your information. The fields show the total installed random
access memory (RAM) and amounts allocated to base memory,
extended memory, and other (high) memory. RAM is counted in
kilobytes (KB: approximately one thousand bytes) and megabytes
(MB: approximately one million bytes).
RAM is the computer's working memory, where the computer
stores programs and data currently being used, so they are accessible to the CPU. Modern personal computers may contain up to 64
MB, 128 MB, or more.
Base Memory
Typically 640 KB. Also called conventional memory. The DOS
operating system and conventional applications use this area.
Chapter 3 Award BIOS Setup
49
Extended Memory
Above the 1-MB boundary. Early IBM personal computers could
not use memory above 1 MB, but current PCs and their software
can use extended memory.
Other Memory
Between 640 KB and 1 MB; often called High memory. DOS may
load, terminate-and-stay-resident (TSR) programs, such as device
drivers, in this area, to free as much conventional memory as
possible for applications. Lines in your CONFIG.SYS file that start
with LOADHIGH, load programs into high memory.
50
SBC-659 User Manual
Advanced BIOS Features
The displayed configuration is based on the manufacturer's SETUP
DEFAULTS settings.
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 first disable the virus
warning.
Chapter 3 Award BIOS Setup
51
CPU Internal Cache/External Cache
Cache memory is additional memory that is much faster than
conventional DRAM (system memory). CPUs from 486-type on up
contain internal cache memory, and most, but not all, modern PCs
have additional (external) cache memory. When the CPU requests
data, the system transfers the requested data from the main DRAM
into cache memory, for even faster access by the CPU.
The External Cache field may not appear if your system does not
have external cache memory.
CPU L2 Cache ECC Checking
When you select Enabled, memory checking is enable when the
external cache contains ECC SRAMs.
Processor Number Feature
This option is for Pentium III processor. During Enabled, this will
check the CPU Serial number. Disabled this option if you don't
want the system to know the serial number.
Quick Power On Self Test
Select Enabled to reduce the amount of time required to run the
power-on-self-test (POST). A quick POST skips certain steps. We
recommend that you normally disable quick POST. Better to find a
problem during POST than lose data during your work.
First/Second/Third/Fourth Boot Device
The BIOS attempts to load the operating system from the devices
in the sequence selected in these items.
The choices: Floppy, LS/ZIP, HDD, SCSI, CDROM, Disable.
52
SBC-659 User Manual
Swap Floppy Drive
This field is effective only in systems with two floppy drives.
Selecting enabled assigns physical drive B to logical drive A, and
physical drive A to logical drive B.
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 720 KB, 1.2 MB, and 1.44 MB
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.
Boot Up NumLock Status
Toggle between On or Off to control the state of the NumLock key
when the system boots. When toggled On, the numeric keypad
generates numbers instead of controlling cursor operations.
Boot Up System Speed
Select High to boot at the default CPU speed; select Low to boot at
the speed of the AT bus. Some add-in peripherals or old software
(such as old games) may require a slow CPU speed. The default
setting is High.
Gate A20 Option
Gate A20 refers to the way the system addresses memory above 1
MB (extended memory). When set to Fast, the system chipset
controls Gate A20. When set to Normal, a pin in the keyboard
controller controls Gate A20. Setting Gate A20 to Fast improves
system speed, particularly with OS/2 and Windows.
Chapter 3 Award BIOS Setup
53
Typematic Rate Setting-
Key strokes repeat at a
rate determined by the keyboard controller. When
enabled, the typematic rate and typematic delay can be
selected.
The choice: Enabled/Disabled
Typematic Rate (Chars/Sec)-
Sets the number
of times a second to repeat a key stroke when you hold
the key down.
The choice: 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, 20, 24, 30
Typematic Delay (Msec)- Sets the delay time
