CHAPTER 1.
INTRODUCTION
The EM370 is an embedded single board computer with full functionality, LCD/SVGA,
LAN, Sound output & a PC/104-plus expansion bus for Intel Pentium III Celeron
Processor. It consists of an on-board SVGA & Audio output, a PCI Ethernet Interface
and a PC/104 expansion bus. The Intel 440BX establishes a new class of low-cost,
high-performance system that offers all the functions of a computer on a single board,
and fits in the space of a 5.25-inch floppy drive (only 5.75”x8”). This design eliminates
system conflicts and end-user configuration problems.
For the embedded board market this means more memory, more processing might, and
more I/O can be packed tighter. The form factor dispenses with the complexity, cost,
and bulk of conventional motherboards, backplanes, and card cages. The embedded
single board computer in EM370 also comes with the most popular PC/104-plus
self –stacking bus connector that suits the small form-factor board standards (compact
PC/104-plus 3.6 x 3.8-inch self-stacking, modular format.). Today, the basic PC
architecture is used in such diverse embedded applications as vending machines,
communications devices, portable systems, and medical equipment.
Among
PC/104-plus standardizes the repackaging of desktop PC functions to satisfy the
ruggedness, reliability, and size constraints of embedded systems. PC/104-plus lets
you combine special-purpose embedded functions with the basic PC computing core.
Other on-board features include four serial ports (RS-232 and RS-232/422/485), one
multi-mode parallel (ECP/EPP/SPP) port, a floppy drive controller and a keyboard
interface and a PS/2 mouse interface. The built-in high speed PCI IDE controller
supports both PIO and bus master modes. Up to two IDE devices can be connected,
including large hard disks, CD-ROM drives, tape backup drives and other IDE devices.
Its 6-layer printed circuit board combines with noise-tolerant and low power
consumption CMOS technology applied on the board makes EM370 able to withstand
any harsh environments very well.

JUMPER SETTING AND CONNECTORS
2.2 JUMPER SETTING OVERVIEW
In order to select the operation modes of your system, configure and set the jumpers on
the your Embedded SBC to match the need of your application. To set a jumper, a
black plastic cap containing metal contacts is placed over the jumper pins as designated
by the required configuration as listed in this section. A jumper is said to be “ on ” or
“ 1-2 ” when the black cap has been placed on two of its pins, as show in the figure
below:
A pair of needle-nose pliers is recommended when working with jumpers. If you have
any doubts about the best hardware configuration for your application, contact your
local sales representative before you make any changes. In general, you simply need
a standard cable to make most connections.
2.3 INSTALLING THE DIMM MODULE:
A DIMM module simply snaps into a socket on the system board. Pin1 of the DIMM
module must correspond with Pin1 of the socket.
Notch
Pin1
Key
1.Position the DIMM above the socket with the “notch” in the module aligned with the
“key” on the socket.
2. Seat the module at a 90 angle into the bank. Make sure it is completely seated.
Tilt the module upright until it locks in place in the socket.

CHAPTER 3.
AWARD BIOS SETUP
Award‘s ROM BIOS provides a built-in Setup program that allows user to modify the
basic system configuration and settings. The modified data will be stored in a
battery-backed CMOS RAM so that these data will be retained even when the power is
turned off. In general, the information saved in the CMOS RAM stay unchanged
unless there is configuration change in the system, such as hard drive replacement or
new equipment is installed.
3.1 RUNNING AWARD BIOS
The Setup Utility is stored in the BIOS ROM. When the power of the computer system
is turned on, a screen message appears to give you an opportunity to call up the Setup
Utility; while the BIOS will enter the Power On Self Test (POST) routines. The POST
routines perform various diagnostic checks while initializing the board hardware. If the
routines encounter an error during the tests, the error will be reported in either of the
two different ways, hear a series of short beeps or see an error message on the screen
display. There are two kinds of error: fatal or non-fatal. The system can usually
continue to boot up sequence with the non-fatal errors. Non-fatal error messages
usually appear on the screen along with the following instructions:
“ Press <F1> to RESUME ”
Write down the message and press the F1 key to continue the bootup sequence. After
the POST routines are completed, the following message appears:
“ Press DEL to enter SETUP ”
Entering Setup
Turn on the power of the computer system and press <Del> immediately. If you don’t
have the chance to respond, reset the system by simultaneously typing the <Ctrl>, <Alt>
and <Delete> keys, or by pushing the ‘ Reset ’ button on the system cabinet. You can
also restart by turning the system OFF then ON.

The Standard CMOS Setup utility is used to configure the following components such
as date, time, hard disk drive, floppy drive, display and memory. Once a field is
highlighted, on-line help information is displayed in the left bottom of the Menu screen.
Set Date : Month, Date, Year.
Set Time : Hour, Minute and Second. Use 24-hour clock format (for p.m. time, add 12
to the hour number, you would enter 4:30 p.m. as 16:30). When you select the
“STANDARD CMOS SETUP” on the main program, the screen display will appears as:
Hard Disks : There are four hard disks listed: “Primary Master”, “Primary Slave”,
“Secondary Master” and “Secondary Slave”. For each IDE channel, the first device is
EM370 / 36
AWARD BIOS SETUP
the “Master” and the second device is “Slave”. Hard disk types from 1 to 45 are the
standard ones. To select or change the configuration, move the cursor to the desired
position and press <Page Up> or <Page Down> to change the option : (1) Press “Auto”
for IDE HDD auto detection, (2) Press “User” for user definable, and Press “None” for
not installed (e.g. SCSI). There are six categories of information that you must enter
for a HDD: “CYLS.” for (number of cylinders), “HEADS” for (number of heads),
“PRECOMP” for (write pre-compensation), “LANDZ” for (landing zone), “SECTOR” for
(number of sectors) and ”MODE“ for (Normal, LBA, LARGE and AUTO). The hard disk
vendor‘s or system manufacturer’s documentation should provide you with the drive
specifications. For an IDE hard drive, you can set “TYPE” to “Auto” or use the “IDE
HDD AUTO DETECTION” utility in the main program screen to enter the drive
specifications.
Here is a brief explanation of drive specifications:
l Type : The BIOS contains a table of pre-defined drive types. Each defined drive
type has specified number of cylinders, number of heads, write compensation factor,
landing zone, and number of sectors. Drives whose specifications do not
accommodate any pre-defined type are classified as type USER.
l Size : Disk drive capacity (approximate). Note that this size is usually slightly
greater than the size of a formatted disk given by a diskchecking program.
l Cyls : Number of cylinders.
l Head : Number of heads.
l Precomp : Write precompensation cylinder
l Landz : Landing zone.
l Sector : Number of sectors.
l 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.
LBA (Logical Block Addressing): During drive accesses, the IDE controller
transforms that data address described by sector, head, and cylinder number
into a physical block address, significantly improving data transfer rates. For
drives with greater 1024 cylinders.
The AWARD BIOS supports three HDD modes: NORMAL, LBA and LARGE.
EM370 / 37
AWARD BIOS SETUP
NORMAL mode : This is a Generic Access mode in which neither the BIOS nor the IDE
controller will make any transformation during the accession. The maximum HDD size
is supported by the NORMAL mode that is 528 Megabytes.
LBA mode : This is a Logical Block Addressing mode which is a HDD accessing
method to overcome the 528 Megabytes restriction. The number of cylinders, heads
and sectors that are shown in setup may not be the physical number contained in the
HDD.
During the HDD accessing, the IDE controller will transform the logical address that is
described by the cylinder, head and sector numbers into its own physical address as
contained inside the HDD. The maximum HDD size that is supported by the LBA
mode is 8.4 Gigabytes.
LARGE mode : Some IDE HDD contains more than 1024 cylinders without the LBA
support. This access mode tricks DOS (or other OS) with the number of cylinders that
is less than 1024 by dividing it by 2. At the same time, the number of heads is multiplied
by 2. A reverse transformation process will be made inside INT13H in order to access
to the right HDD address. The maximum HDD size that is supported by the LARGE
mode is 1 Gigabytes.
Note : 1. To support LBA or LARGE mode, there are softwares located in the AWARD
HD Service Routine“INT13H”. It may fail to access a HDD with LBA or
LARGE modes selected if you are running under an Operating System that
replaces the whole INT13H service routine.
2. Entering incorrect drive specifications will result in a hard disk drive that will
function improperly or no function at all.
Drive A and Drive B : Select the correct specifications for the diskette drive(s) installed
in the computer.

system.
CPU Internal Cache : The default setting is “Enabled”. This setting enables the CPU
internal cache .
External Cache : The default setting is “Enabled”. This setting enables the external
cache.
CPU L2 Cache ECC Checking : When you select Enabled, memory checking is
enable when the external cache contains ECC.
Quick Power On Self Test : The default setting is “Enabled”. This speeds up the
Power On Self Test (POST) by skipping some items that are normally checked during
the full POST. If your system is functioning normally, you can choose this feature to
speed the booting process.
Boot Sequence : The default setting is “C:,A:”; the other options are “CDROM, C, A”
and “A, C” and “C, CDROM, A”. This setting determines where the computer looks first
for an operating system, the hard disk, or the floppy disk, … or other. The BIOS will
load the operating system from the disk drives in the sequence as selected here.
Swap Floppy Drive : The default setting is “Disabled”. This setting gives you an
option to swap A and B floppy disks. Normally, the floppy drive A is the one at the end
of the cable and drive B is at the other end. If you set this option to “Enabled”, the
Drive A will function as Drive B, and vice-versa under the DOS.
Boot Up Floppy Seek : The defaults setting is “Disabled”. When enabled, the BIOS
will check whether there is a floppy disk drive installed.
Boot Up Numlock Status : The default setting is “On”. If set “Off”, the cursor controls
will function on the numeric keypad.
Gate A20 Option : The default setting is “Fast”. This is the optimal setting for the CPU
card. The other option is “Normal”.
Typematic Rate Setting : The default setting is “Disabled”. If enabled, you can set the
typematic rate and typematic delay.
EM370 / 41
AWARD BIOS SETUP
Typematic Rate (Chars/Sec) : This setting controls the speed at which the system
registers the repeated keystrokes. The choices range from 6 to 30 Chars/Sec. The
default setting is “6” Chars/Sec.
Typematic Delay (Msec) : This setting controls the time between the display of the first
and second characters. There are four delay choices: 250ms, 500ms, 750ms and
1000ms. The default setting is “250” ms.
Security Option : This setting controls the password in the main screen. The options
are “Setup” and “System”. Select “Setup” and it will protect the Setup Utility settings
from being tampered with. Select “System” if you want to use password feature every
time the system boots up. The default setting is “Setup”. You can create your password
by using the “SUPERVISOR/USER PASSWORD” utility on the main program screen.
PS/2 Mouse Function Control : If your system has a PS/2 mouse port and install
a serial pointing device, select Disabled.
PCI/VGA Palette Snoop : The default setting is “Disabled”. Set to “Enable” if any IS A
adapter card installed requires VGA palette snooping.
Assign IRQ for VGA : Select Enabled only if your VGA card requires an assigned
IRQ. Most ordinary cards do not; some high-end cards with video capture function do.
Consult the information that comes with your VGA card to determine whether it needs
an assigned IRQ.
OS Select For DRAM > 64MB : The default setting is “Non-OS2”. Set to “OS2” if the
system memory size is greater than 64MB and the operating system is OS/2.
Video BIOS Shadow : The default setting is “Enabled” which will copy the VGA display
card BIOS into system DRAM to improve performance.
C8000-CBFFF Shadow to DC000-DFFFF Shadow : The default setting for the shadow
feature is “Disabled”. When enabled, the ROM with the specific address is copied into

automatically depending on whether the DRAM used is either 70ns or 60ns. The other
option is “Disabled” which allows you to change DRAM timing manually.
EM370 / 43
AWARD BIOS SETUP
EDO DRAM Speed Selection : The value in this field must correspond to the
speed of the EDO DRAM installed in you system.DO not change the default setting of
this field, as determined by the system board manufacturer for the installed DRAM. This
vaule is access speed,so a lower value means a fast system.
EDO CAS# MA Wait State : The board designer may select to insert one
additional wait state before the assertion of the first CAS# for page hit cycles, thus
allowing one additional clock of MA setup time to the CASx# for the leadoff page hit
cycle. Do not change from the manufacturer’s default unless you are getting memory
addressing errors.
EDO RAS# Wait State : The board designer may elect to insert one additional wait
state before RAS# is asserted for row misses, thus allowing one additional MAX{13:}
setup time to RAS# assertion. This field applies only if EDO DRAM is installed the
system.
SDRAM RAS-to-CAS Delay : This field lets you control the number of DCLKs
between a Row Activate command and a read or write command.
SDRAM RAS Precharge Time : The precharge time is the number of cycles it
takes for the RAS to accumulate its charge before DRAM refresh. If insufficient time is
allowd, refresh may be incomplete and the DRAM may fail to retain data. This field
applies only if synchronous DRAM is installed in the system.
SDRAM CAS Latency Time : When synchronous DRAM is installed, you can
control the number of CLKs between when the SDRAMs sample a read command and
when the controller samples read data from the SDRAMs. Do not reset this field from
the default value specified by the system designer.
SDRAM Precharge Control : When Enabled, all CPU cycles to SDRAM result in
an All Banks Precharge Command on the SDRAM interface.
DRAM Date Integrity Mode : Select Non-ECC or ECC (error-correcting code),
according to the type of installed DRAM.
System BIOS Cacheable : Selecting Enabled allows caching of the system BIOS ROM
at F0000h-FFFFFh, resulting in better system performance. However, if any program
writes to this memory area, a system error may result.
EM370 / 44
AWARD BIOS SETUP
Video BIOS Cacheable : Selecting Enabled allows caching of the video BIOS ROM at
C0000h to C7FFFh, resulting in better video performance. However, if any program
writes to this memory area, a system error may result.
Video RAM Cacheable : Selecting Enabled allows caching of the video memory
(RAM) at A0000h to AFFFFh, resulting in better video performance. However, if any
program writes to this memory area, a memory access error may result.
8/16 Bit I/O Recovery Time : The I/O recovery mechanism adds bus clock cycles
between PCI-originated I/O cycles to the ISA bus. This delay takes place because the
PCI bus is so much faster than the ISA bus. These two fields let you add recovery
time (in bus clock cycles) for 16-bit and 8-bit I/O.
Memory Hole At 15M-16M : You can reserve this area of system memory for ISA
adapter ROM. When this area is reserved, it cannot be cached. The user information of
peripherals that need to use this area of system memory usually discusses their
memory requirements.
Passive Release : When Enabled, CPU to PCI bus accesses are allows during passive
release. Otherwise, the arbiter only accepts another PCI master access to local DRAM.
.
Delayed Transaction : The chipset has an embedded 32-bit posted write buffer to
support delay transactions cycles. Select Enable to support compliance with PCI
specification version 2.1.
Auto Detect DIMM/PCI Clk : The default setting is “Enabled”.
To reduce the
occurrence of electromagnetic interference (EMI), the BIOS detects the presence or
absence of components of DIMM and PCI slots and turns off system clock generator
pulses to empty slots.
Spread Spectrum : 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

hard drive enters an idle state, and the L2 cache enters a power-save mode. All other
devices still operate at full speed.
Suspend Mode : After the selected period of system inactivity, the chipset enters a
hardware suspend mode, stopping the CPU clock and possibly causing other system
devices to enter power management modes.
HDD Power Down : After the selected period of drive inactivity, any system IDE devices
compatible with the ATA -2 specification or later power manage themselves, putting
themselves into an idle state after the specified timeout and then waking themselves up

GLOSSARY
8-Bit Bus – Data is transmitted to expansion slots and other components on the bus
only along 8 parallel data line.
10Base-T – It is a 10Mbps IEEE 802.3/Ethernet standard that uses unshielded twisted
pair cable specification. 10Base-T supports network configuration using the CSMA/CD
access method over a twisted pair transmission system up to 100 meters in length
without the use of repeater.
16-Bit Bus or ISA Bus – Data is transmitted along either 8 or 16 data lines, depending
on what kind of adapter card is used in an expansion slot. ISA is the abbreviation of
Industry Standard Architecture.
100Base-TX – It is a 100Mbps IEEE 802.3/Ethernet standard that uses UTP cable.
Also called Fast Ethernet, it uses RJ-45 connectors and EIA/TIA T568B pinning.
Maximum cable length from hub to node is 100 meters without a repeater.
Adapter – It is also called an expansion board, expansion card, or adapter card. It is a
small circuit board that is installed in the expansion slots on the motherboard. You can
install a particular adapter that connects a new device such as internal modem, sound
card, and scanner.
AGP (Accelerated Graphic Port) – is a 32-bit, 66MHz external frequency data bus that
transmit a maximum of 528MB/s of data (4 times the speed of PCI transmission); this
design improves the speed of large amount in video transaction.
BIOS (Basic Input /Output System) – This is a chip on the motherboard that contains
the instructions for starting up, or booting, the computer, and more.
Bus – Data that travels in a computer along the circuits on the motherboard are called
buses. Although three main buses (data bus, address bus, and control bus) manage
the computer’s operation, often these are collectively called the bus. The bus carries
instructions back and forth between the CPU and other devices in the system. ISA,
EISA, VL-Bus, PCI and SCSI are examples of PC buses.
EM370 / 62
GLOSSARY
bps – Bits per second. Also often preceded by K (kilo/thousands), Kbps – Kilo bytes
per second, and M (mega/million), Mbps – Mega bytes per second.
Bus Mastering – A method of transferring data through a bus in which the device takes
over the bus and directly controls the transfer of data to the computer’s memory. Bus
mastering is a method of Direct Memory Access (DMA) transfer.
Cache – Cache RAM is an extra holding area for program instructions that need to be
frequently used by the CPU or swapped in and out of RAM. Your CPU can usually
access those instructions from the cache more quickly than it could from a hard disk or
even RAM, so a cache helps the system work more efficiently. Most systems sold
today offer either 256K or 512K cache.
CPU (Central Processing Unit) – executes all commands and controls the flow of data,
providing the “ brain ” that enables the PC to calculate and perform the operations like
sorting information more quickly than a human could. The CPU makes perhaps the
greatest contribution to a PC’s speed and power. Note: Any additional information is
subject to change without prior revision from the supplier.

EIDE (Enhanced IDE) – It is a hard drive controller that enables your system to be able
to handle fast hard disk drives at a speed of 10Mbps.
EISA or MCA Bus – Data is transmitted along 32 data lines to adapter cards designed
specifically to work with the 32-bit buses. MCA expansion slots cannot accept 8-bit or
16-bit adapter cards. EISA stands for Extended Industry Standard Architecture, while
MCA stands for MicroChannel Architecture. MCA is architecture used in IBM
Microcomputer.
EM370 / 63
GLOSSARY
Expansion slots – Expansion slots are plug-in connectors that allow you to insert
additional circuit boards that attach to the rest of the PC through special circuitry called
the bus. By inserting the right circuit board -- usually called an adapter or an
expansion card – you can increase the resolution and the number of colors used by
the display, or you can transform your PC into a machine for recording and playing
music.
Fast SCSI – The common nomenclature associated with SCSI-2, the second
generation of SCSI offering mandatory parity checking improvements over SCSI-1.
IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics) – It was developed from ST-506 type hard drive
interface, utilizes BIOS INT 13h hard drive secondary software and supports two hard
drives (Master and Slave). Do not need extra software to drive since it is directly
initiated in the BIOS. Data transfer rate is 4.1 Mbps. Take note that this interface
cannot support other drive like CD-ROM drive.
IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers) – It is an international
professional society that issues its own standard, and is a member of ANSI and ISO.
Popular known standards is:
IEEE802.3 – is a physical layer standard for 10Base-T,
IEEE802.5 –
IEEE802.11 –
100Base-T, Ethernet, and StarLAN.
is a physical layer standard for Token Ring.
is a physical layer standard for Wireless
IEEE802.12 –
LAN/WAN compatibility.
is a physical layer standard for 100VG AnyLAN.
LAN (Local Area Network) – A data communications network spanning a limited area.
It provides communications between three or more computers and peripherals, in most
cases using a high-speed media as it’s backbone.
EM370 / 64
GLOSSARY
Keyboard – This is a component that comes in direct contact for you with your PC.
The mechanism of keyboard converts a key cap’s movement into a signal sent to the
computer. The most common key mechanism are “ capacitate ” and “ hard contact ”.
Capacitate keyboard has a spring that causes the plastic and the metal plunger to move
nearer to two pads that have large plates (plated in tin, nickel, and copper). These
pads are connected to the keyboard’s printed circuit board. Hard contact keyboard
causes the key cap to collapse a foam rubber dome that presses against a sheet of
plastic on the bottom of which is metallic area connected to the rest of the keyboard’s
circuit board.
LDCM (LANDesk Client Manager) – With the help of LDCM, PCs that are either
stand-alone or on a network can not escape the control of a system administrator.
Alerts will be sent to the user if an abnormal condition is encountered in a PC. It allows
the administrator to give each PC a thorough check-up. Additionally, this feature is
available to multiple OS’s on the market today. LDCM Key Features
include
the
following : ←Health Monitoring , ↑Real-Time Alerting , →Remote Accessibility ,
↓Extensive Instrumentation. This is a product from Intel.
Mouse – The keyboard is a barrier to learn how to use a computer. Xerox Corporation
first developed the concept of a pointing device, something a computer user could move
with his or her hand, causing a corresponding move on screen. Because of its size
and tail like cable, the device was named for the mouse. Apple Computer made the
mouse a standard feature of its Macintosh computers, and with the popularity of
Windows, a mouse is becoming standard equipment on all PCs, as well. The
“ Trackball ” have survived more awkward methods of navigating with the keyboard.
“ Digitizing tablets ” are popular with architects and engineers who must translate
precise movements of a pen into lines on the screen. “ Touch screens “, on which you
press either your finger and a special light pen to control the software, are too tiring to
use for any length of time.
MMX – CPU’s with MMX  technology are optimized to run multimedia application,
and therefore, offer faster multimedia playback than standard CPUs. However, when
manufacturers introduce any new hardware technology, the software makers need to
catch up. At this time of compilation, most applications can’t yet take advantage of
MMX  capabilities.
EM370 / 65
GLOSSARY
Parallel port – Parallel ports (labeled LPT1, LPT2, and so on) are usually for plugging
in printers. It is also often called a Centronics port – has been almost synonymous
with printer port. Although a serial port can also be used to send data from a PC to
some models of printers, the parallel port is faster. A serial port sends data one bit at a
time over a single one-way wire; a parallel port can send several bits of data across
eight parallel wires simultaneously. Take note that a serial connection sends a single
bit, a parallel port send an entire byte. A parallel connection has one drawback.
PCI Bus (Peripheral Component Interconnect) – It is a connection slot in a
motherboard that supports 32-bit bus transfer rates. The now standard PCI Local Bus
carries data along at least 32 lines, that is, at least 32 bits at a time. Local bus
computer designs add special buses so the CPU can communicate directly with key
components like the monitor, resulting in much better performance. You should look
for PCI local bus capabilities in any system you buy, especially PCI local bus video
(which helps the monitor display more quickly).
POST (Power -On Self-Test) – is the first thing your PC does when you turn it on, and
it’s your first warning of trouble with any of the components. When the POST detects
an error from the display, memory, keyboard, or other basic components, it produces an
error warning in the form of a message on your display and — in case your display is
part of the problem — in the form of a series of beeps.
RAM (Random Access Memory) – consists of a bank of chips that act as “ working
memory ”, holding program instructions and data only while your computer’s on.
Unless the instructions and data are saved to a disk, RAM forgets them when you turn
your computer off. RAM is measured in megabytes (M). Most computers today come
with 32M of RAM, though some sell with only 16M installed. There are a few different
flavors and speeds of RAM, as well. One of the most prominent today is Extended
Data Output ( EDO ) RAM, but an even faster type of RAM that has just hit the market is
called SyncDRAM.
Serial port – Serial ports are also sometimes called COM (short for COMmunications)
ports, and are labeled COM1, COM2, and so on. It is simple in concept: one line to
send data, another line to receive data, and a few other lines to regulate how data is
sent over the other two lines – from commonplace modems and printers to plotters and
burglar alarms. The most common use for serial port is with a mouse or modem.
The reason for this is that a serial port is not a very efficient way to transfer data, so little
data
EM370 / 66
GLOSSARY
that speed is not crucial, and perfect for modems because. With current technology,
phone lines cannot transport more than one signal at a time anyway. The serial port
is often referred to as an RS-232 port.
SCSI (Small Computer System Interface) – An intelligent bus for transmitting data
commands between a variety of devices. There are many implementations of SCSI,
including Fast SCSI, Wide SCSI, Fast Wide SCSI, Fast-20, and Fast-40.
SCSI-2 – The second generation of SCSI; includes many improvements to SCSI-1,
including Fast SCSI, Wide SCSI, and mandatory parity checking.
SCSI-3 – The third generation of SCSI; introduces Fast-20 and Fast-40 as
improvements to the parallel bus.
The standard also includes a number of
specifications for high-speed serial bus architectures such as SSA, Fiber Channel, and
IEEE 1394. Also known as Ultra SCSI.
Ultra SCSI – Also known as SCSI-3, is a third generation SCSI standard that introduced
parallel bus speed improvements (FAST-20 and FAST-40), an the miniaturized 68-pin
micro connector.
USB (Universal Serial Bus) – USB consolidates serial, parallel, keyboard, mouse, and
game ports into one async hronous and isochronous communications port with
bandwidth for data transfer speeds up to 12 Mbps without termination.
By
daisy-chaining USB hubs, up to 127 I/O devices can be connected to one USB port on
the PC. USB is completely plug -and play meaning peripherals can be correctly
detected and configured automatically as soon as they are connected.
UTP (Unshielded Twisted Pair) – Twisted pair cable with neither individual nor overall
shielding. Twisted Pair are two wires twisted together to reduce susceptibility to RF
crosswalk.
VGA (Video Graphics Array) – A video adapter that supports 640x480 pixels color
resolution. The Windows OS provides medium text & graphics standard.
VL-Bus – It is also known as Local Bus; this is an I/O interface that is directly connected
and depended of the system CPU. The VL-Bus is an abbreviation of VESA Local Bus.
