Introduction
The PCM-5894 is a Pentium single board computer with one onboard PCI SVGA controller, one PCI Ethernet interface and one
PCI expansion slot. Equipped with 64 bits local bus architecture,
the PCM-5894 releases Pentium's full potential and provides
unprecedented performance compared to current 32-bit processor boards. The PCM-5894 offers all the functions of industrial
computer on a single board, but fits in the space of a 5¼" floppy
drive (only 5.75" x 8"). For maximum performance, the PCM5894 also supports 2nd level cache 512 KB on board. SSD
interface supports one 32-pin DIP socket for M-system DiskOnChip 2000 series, memory capacity from 2 MB to 72MB.
On-board features include four serial ports (three RS-232 and
one RS-232/422/485), one multi-mode parallel (ECP/EPP/SPP)
port, one floppy drive controller and one keyboard/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.
The PCM-5894 also features power management to minimize
power consumption. It complies with the “Green Function”
standard and supports three types of power saving features: Doze
mode, Standby mode and Suspend mode. In addition, the board’s
watchdog timer can automatically reset the system or generate an
interrupt in case the system stops due to a program bug or EMI.
On-board peripherals with true PCI
performance
The PCM-5894 is a highly integrated, all-in-one single board
computer. All on-board peripherals (including PCI flat panel/VGA
interface, PCI Ethernet and PCI IDE) adopt PCI technology and
operate through internal PCI bus. Integrating a Pentium board with
PCI architecture has unleashed a revolutionary level of performance. The PCM-5894 is the smallest and most powerful all-inone Pentium board available.

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.

Open
Closed

Closed 2-3
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 standard cable to make most
connections.
14 PCM-5894 User's Manual
CPU installing and upgrading
You can upgrade to a higher power Pentium CPU at any time.
Simply remove the old CPU, install the new one, and set the
jumpers for the new CPU type and speed.
Warning! Always disconnect the power cord from your
chassis when you are working on it. Do not
make connections while the power is on as
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 PC board. 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.
When you install a new CPU, be sure to adjust the board settings,
such as CPU type and CPU clock. Improper settings may
damage the CPU.

Installing DRAM (SIMMs)
The mainboard provides two 72-pin SIMM (Single In-line
Memory Module) sockets and supports either Fast Page Mode
(FPM) or Extended Data Output (EDO) DRAM with a speed of at
least 70 ns. Unlike most other CPU cards, the mainboard supports
both single and dual insertion into the memory bank. Depending
on the combination of modules you use, you can install from 1
MB to 128 MB of RAM.
Installing SIMMs
NOTE: The modules can only fit into a socket one way. Their
chips must face the CPU, and their gold pins must point down into
the SIMM socket.
1. Ensure that all power sources are disconnected.
2. Slip the memory module into the socket at a 45 degree angle.
3. Push the module toward the vertical posts at both ends of the
socket until the module is upright, and the retaining clips at
both ends of the module click into place. When positioned
correctly, the pins on top of the vertical posts should correspond to the circular holes on the ends of the module.
4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 for each module you install.

DiskOnChip socket (U16)
The DiskOnChip 2000 family of products provides a single chip
solid-state flash disk in a standard 32-pin DIP package. The
DiskOnChip 2000 is a solid-state disk with no moving parts,
resulting in a significant reduction in power consumption and an
increase in reliability. The DiskOnChip is small, plug and play
Flash disk. It is easy to use and save integration overhead.
The DiskOnChip 2000 family of products is available in capacities ranging from 2MB up to 72 MB, unformatted. This way, the
same socket on the target platform will not have to be changed. In
order to manage the disk, the DiskOnChip 2000 includes the
TrueFFS, M-Systems' Flash File System proprietary software. The
DiskOnChip 2000 package is pin-to-pin compatible with standard
32-pin EPROM device.

IDE hard drive connector (CN11)
You can attach one or two Enhanced Integrated Device Electronics hard disk drives to the mainboard's internal controller. The
mainboard's IDE controller uses a PCI local-bus interface. This
advanced interface supports fster data transfer and allows the IDE
hard drive to exceed 528 MB.
Connecting the hard drive
Connecting drives is done in a daisy-chain fashion and requires
one of two cables, depending on the drive size. 1.8" and 2.5"
drives need a 1 x 44-pin to 2 x 44-pin flat-cable connector. 3.5"
drives use a 1 x 44-pin to 2 x 40-pin connect.
Wire number 1 on the cable is red or blue, and the other wires are
gray.
1. Connect one end of the cable to CN11. Make sure that the red
(or blue) wire corresponds to pin 1 on the connector, which is
labeled on the board (on the right side).
2. Plug the other end of the cable to the Enhanced IDE hard
drive, with pin 1 one the cable corresponding to pin 1 on the
hard drive. (See your hard drive's documentation for the
location of the connector).
Connect a second drive as described above.
Unlike drives, IDE hard drives can connect to either end of the
cable. If you install two drives, you will need to set one as the
master and one as the slave by using jumpers on the drives. If
you install just on drive, set it as the master.

Floppy drive connector (CN16)
You can attach up to two floppy disks to the mainboard controller.
You can use any combination of 5¼" (360 KB and 1.2 MB) and/or
3½" (720 KB, 1.44 MB, and 2.88 MB) drives.
A 34-pin daisy-chain drive connector cable is required for a dualdrive system. On one end of the cable is a 34-pin flat-cable
connector. On the other end are two sets of floppy disk drive
connectors. Each set consists of a 34-pin flat-cable connector
(usually used for 3½" drives) and a printed-circuit board connector (usually used for 5¼" drives).
Connecting the floppy drive
1. Plug the 34-pin flat-cable connector into CN16. Make sure
that the red wire corresponds to pin one on the connector.
2. Attach the appropriate connector on th eother end of the cable
to the floppy drive(s). You can use only one connector in the
set. The set on the end (after the twist in the cable) connects
to the A: drive. The set in the middle connects to the B: drive.
3. If you are connecting a 5¼" floppy drive, line up the slot in the
printed circuit board with the blocked-off part of the cable
connector.
If you are connecting a 3½"floppy drive, you may have trouble
determining which pin is pin number one. Look for a number
printed on the circuit board indicating pin number one. Also,
the connector on the floppy drive connector may have a slot.
When the slot is up, pin number one should be on the right.
Check the documentation that came with the drive for more
information.
If you desire, connect the B: drive to the connectors in the
middle of the cable as described above.

Parallel port connector (CN13)
Normally, the parallel port is used to connect the card to a printer.
The mainboard includes an on-board parallel port, accessed
through CN13, a 26-pin flat-cable connector. You need an adapter
cable if you use a traditional DB-25 connector. The cable has a
26-pin connector on one end and a DB-25 connector on the other.
Parallel port IRQ
The mainbaord supports one parallel port. The port is designated
as LPT1 and can be disabled or changed to LPT2 or LPT3 in the
system BIOS setup.

Keyboard and mouse connector (CN9)
The mainboard provides a keyboard connector which supports
both a keyboard and a PS/2 style mouse. In most cases, especially
in embedded applications, a keyboard is not used. The standard
PC/AT BIOS will report an error or fail during power-on self test
(POST) after a reset if the keyboard is not present. The mainboard
BIOS Advanced setup menu allows you to select "System Keyboard" under the "Present" or "Absent" selection. This allows nokeyboard operation in embedded system applications without the
system halting under POST (power-on-self-test).

CN3 consists of a 50-pin, dual-in-line header. Power supplies
(+12 V, -12 V) present on CN3 depend on the supply connected
to the board. Ensure that both CN8 and CN12 are connected for
±12 V power supply.
The mainboard provides a bias control signal on CN3 which can
be used to control the LCD bias voltage. It is recommended that
the LCD bias voltage not be applied to the panel until the logic
supply voltage (+5 V) and panel video signals are stable. Under
normal operation the control signal (ENAVEE) is active high.
When the PCM-5894's power is applied, the control signal is low
until just after the relevant flat panel signals are present.

Software drivers
This chapter describes the operation and installation of the software
drivers supplied on the Display Driver Diskettes that are shipped
with your VGA adapter.
Your VGA adapter is based on the CHIPS VGA Flat Panel/CRT
controller and is fully IBM VGA compatible. This controller offers a
large set of extended functions and higher resolutions. If you intend
to use your VGA adapter in standard VGA modes only, you do not
need to install any of these drivers. Since your VGA adapter is fully
compatible, it does not require any special drivers to operate in
standard modes.
The purpose of the enclosed software drivers is to take advantage of
the extended features of the CHIPS VGA Flat Panel/CRT controller.
Hardware configuration
Some of the high-resolution drivers provided in this package will
work only in certain system configurations. If a driver does not
display correctly, try the following:
1. Change the display controller to CRT-only mode, rather than flat
panel or simultaneous display mode. Some high-resolution
drivers will display correctly only in CRT mode.
2. If a high-resolution mode is not supported on your system, try
using a lower-resolution mode. For example, 1024 x 768 mode
will not work on some systems, but 800 x 600 mode is supported
on most.
64
PCM-5894 User's Manual
Necessary prerequisites
The instructions in this manual assume that you understand elementary concepts of MS-DOS and the IBM Personal Computer. Before you
attempt to install any driver or utility, you should:
• Know how to copy files from a floppy disk to a directory on the
hard disk
• Understand the MS-DOS directory structure
• Know how to format a floppy disk
If you are uncertain about any of these concepts, please refer to the
DOS or OS/2 user reference guides for more information, before
you proceed with the installation.
Before you begin
Before you begin the driver software installation, you should make
backup copies of the Display Driver Diskettes. Store the original
disks in a safe place.
Make sure you know the version of the application for which you are
installing drivers. Your Display Driver Diskettes contain drivers for
several versions of certain applications. For your driver to operate
properly, you must install the driver for your version of the application program.

Chapter 5 Sis 5598VGA Drivers 75
/F2: For 1024x768, set frame rate to be n2 Hz.
Four availabe frame rates are 87 (Interlace), 60, 70, and 75 Hz.
For example : Set 1024x768 graphic mode with 60Hz frame
rate.
>SVGAUTL /F2:60 <Enter>
/F3: For 1280x1024, set frame rate to be n3 Hz.
Two availabe frame rates are 87 (Interlace) and 60 Hz.

Ethernet software configuration
The mainboard on-board Ethernet interface supports all major
network operating systems. I/O addresses and interrupts are easily
configured via the BIOS Setup. To configure the medium type, to
view the current configuration, or to run diagnostics, do the following:
1. Power the mainboard on. Ensure that the RSET8139.EXE file is
located in the working drive.
2. At the prompt type RSET8139.EXE and press <Enter>. The
Ethernet configuration program will then be displayed.
3. This simple screen shows all the available options for the Ethernet interface. Just highlight the option you wish to change by
using the Up and Down keys. To change a selected item, press
<Enter>, and a screen will appear with the available options.
Highlight your option and press <Enter>. Each highlighted option
has a helpful message guide displayed at the bottom of the screen
for additional information.
4. After you have made your selections and your are sure that this is
the configuration you want, press ESC. A prompt will appear
asking if you want to save the configuration. Press Y if you want
to save.
The Ethernet Setup Menu also offers three very useful diagnostic
functions. These are:
1. Run EEPROM test
2. Run Diagnostics on Board
3. Run Diagnostics on Network

Programming the
Watchdog Timer
The mainboard is equipped with a
watchdog timer that resets the CPU or
generates an interrupt if processing
comes to a standstill for whatever reason.
This feature ensures system reliability in
industrial stand-alone and unmanned
environments.
Appendix A Programming the Watchdog Timer
89
Programming the watchdog timer
An on-board watchdog timer reduces the chance of disruptions
which EMP (electro-magnetic pulse) interference can cause.
This is an invaluable protective device for standalone or unmanned applications. When the watchdog timer activates(CPU
processing has come to a halt), it can reset the system, or
generate an interrupt on IRQ10, IRQ11, IRQ15, NMI. This can be
set via I/O Port 444, the functions as following:
0
1
2
3
4
:
:
:
:
:
RESET
IRQ10
IRQ15
IRQ11
NMI
If you decide to program the watchdog timer, you must write data
to I/O port 443 (hex). The output data is a value timer. You can
write from 80 (hex) to FF (hex) for input minute data plus from
00 (hex) to 7F (hex) for input second data, and the related timer is
2 second to 127 minutes plus 127 seconds sec.
After data entry, your program must refresh the watchdog timer
by rewriting the I/O port 443 (hex) while simultaneously setting
it. When you want to disable the watchdog timer, your program
should write I/O port 80 (hex) a Hex value.

Installing these modules on the mainboard is quick and simple.
The following steps show how to mount the PC/104 modules:
1. Remove the mainbaord from your system paying particular
attention to the safety instructions already mentioned.
2. Make any jumper or link changes required to the mainboard
now. Once the PC/104 module is mounted you may have
difficulty in accessing these.
3. Normal PC/104 modules have male connectors and mount
directly onto the main card. However, to ensure better bus
matching, the connectors on the mainboard and the PC/104
module are both female. For this reason, you may need to use
the "male-male" adapter included with the mainboard in order
to properly connect your PC/104 module. (Refer to the
diagram on the following page.)
4. Mount the PC/104 module onto the mainboard by pressing the
module firmly but carefully onto the mounting connectors.
5. Secure the PC/104 module onto the mainboard using the four
mounting spacers and srews.
