2-3. HOW TO SET THE JUMPERS
You can configure your board by setting jumpers. Jumper is consists of
two or three metal pins with a plastic base mounted on the card, and by
using a small plastic "cap", Also known as the jumper cap (with a metal
contact inside), you are able to connect the pins. So you can set-up your
hardware configuration by "open" or "close" pins.
The jumper can be combined into sets that called jumper blocks. When the
jumpers are all in the block, you have to put them together to set up the
hardware configuration. The figure below shows how this looks like.
JUMPERS AND CAPS
If a jumper has three pins (for examples, labelled PIN1, PIN2, and PIN3),
You can connect PIN1 & PIN2 to create one setting and shorting. You can
either connect PIN2 & PIN3 to create another setting. The same jumper
diagrams are applied all through this manual. The figure below shows what
the manual diagrams look and what they represent.

3-8. WATCHDOG TIMER CONFIGURATION
This board has watchdog timer function for monitoring whether the system
is still work or not after a period of time. The user can select watchdog
timer to system reset or NMI (Non Maskable interrupt) depending on the
jumper set in chapter 2. This is defined at I/O port 443H. When you want to
enable the watchdog timer, please write I/O port 443H, and then the system
will either reset itself or perform the NMI function. Likewise, when you
want to disable the function, write I/O port 441H, the system will run the
command to stop the Watchdog function.
In EBC-I845C watchdog function, you must write your program so when it
writes I/O port address 443 for enable watchdog and write I/O port address
441 for disable watchdog. The timer's intervals have a tolerance of 25%
(but for level 1 and 2, the tolerance is 4%), so you should program an
instruction that will refresh the timer about every second.
The following program shows you how to program the watch timer in your
program.
Watchdog enable program:
MOV AX, 000FH (choose the values you need; start from 0)
MOV DX, 443H
OUT DX, AX
Watchdog disable program:
MOV AX, 000FH (this value can be ignored)
MOV DX, 441H

Award BIOS Setup
4-1. INTRODUCTION
This chapter will show you the function of the BIOS in managing the
features of your system. The EBC-I845C Pentium® 4 5.25” Embedded CPU
Card is equipped with the BIOS for system chipset from Award Software Inc.
This page briefly explains the function of the BIOS in managing the special
features of your system. The following pages describe how to use the BIOS
for system chipset Setup menu.
Your application programs (such as word processing, spreadsheets, and
games) rely on an operating system such as DOS or OS/2 to manage such
things as keyboard, monitor, disk drives, and memory.
The operating system relies on the BIOS (Basic Input and Output system), a
program stored on a ROM (Read-only Memory) chip, to initialize and
configure your computer's hardware. As the interface between the hardware
and the operating system, the BIOS enables you to make basic changes to
your system's hardware without having to write a new operating system.
The following diagram illustrates the interlocking relationships between the
system hardware, BIOS, operating system, and application program:

IDE Primary Master / Slave:
IDE Secondary Master / Slave:
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 detect its specifications during POST, every time system
boots.
If you do not want to select drive type AUTO, other methods of selecting
drive type are available:
1.
Match the specifications of your installed IDE hard drive(s) with the
preprogrammed values for hard 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 pre-defined 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 predefine type are
classified as type USER.
•
Size: Disk drive capacity (approximate). Note that this size is usually
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 cylinders.
•
Landz: landing zone.
•
Sector: number of sectors.
•
Mode: Auto, Normal, Large or LBA.
Auto: The BIOS automatically determines the optimal mode.
ƒ
Normal: Maximum number of cylinders, heads, sectors
supported are 1024, 16 and 63.
ƒ
Large: For drives that do not support LBA and have more
than 1024 cylinders.

ƒ
LBA (Logical Block Addressing): During drive accesses, 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 greater than 1024 cylinders.
DRIVE A AND DRIVE B:
Select the type of floppy disk drive installed in your system. The available
options are 360KB 5.25in, 1.2KB 5.25in, 720KB 3.5in, 1.44MB 3.5in,
2.88MB 3.5in and None.

Chipset Features Setup Screen
This parameter allows you to configure the system based on the specific
features of the installed chipset. The chipset manages bus speed and
access to system memory resources, such as DRAM and the external cache.
It also coordinates communications between conventional ISA bus and the
PCI bus. It must be stated that these items should never need to be altered.
The default settings have been chosen because they provide the best operating conditions for the system. The only time you might consider making
any changes would be if you discovered that data was being lost while
using your system.

DRAM TIMING BY SELECTABLE:
This allows you to select the DRAM timing.
CAS LATENCY TIME:
When synchronous DRAM is installed, the number of clock cycles of CAS
latency depends on the DRAM timing.
ACTIVE TO PRECHARGE DELAY:
This item controls the number of DRAM clocks for TRAS.
DRAM RAS# TO CAS# DELAY:
This field let’s you insert a timing delay between the CAS and RAS strobe
signals, used when DRAM is written to, read from, or refreshed. Fast gives
faster performance; and Slow gives more stable performance. This field
applies only when synchronous DRAM is installed in the system.
DRAM RAS# PRECHARGE:
If an insufficient number of cycles is allowed for the RAS to accumulate its
charge before DRAM refresh, the refresh may be incomplete and the DRAM
may fail to retain data. Fast gives faster performance; and Slow gives more
stable performance. This field applies only when synchronous DRAM is
installed in the system.
SYSTEM BIOS CACHEABLE:
Selecting Enabled allows caching of the system BIOS ROM at F0000hFFFFFh, resulting in better system performance. However, if any program
writes to this memory area, a system error may result.
VIDEO BIOS CACHEABLE:
Select Enabled allows caching of the video BIOS, resulting in better system
performance. However, if any program writes to this memory area, a system
error may result.
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.

PNP/PCI Configuration Setup Screen
The PNP/PCI Configuration Setup describes how to configure PCI bus system.
PCI, also known as Personal Computer Interconnect, is a system, which
allows I/O devices to operate at speeds nearing the speed of the CPU itself
uses when communicating with its own special components.
This section covers technical items, which is strongly recommended for
experienced users only.
PNP OS INSTALLED:
This item allows you to determine install PnP OS or not.

RESET CONFIGURATION DATA:
Normally, you leave this field Disabled. Select Enabled to reset Extended
System Configuration Data (ESCD) when you exit Setup if you have
installed a new add-on and the system configuration has caused such a
serious conflict that the operating system cannot boot.
RESOURCE CONTROLLED BY:
The Award Plug and Play Bios can automatically configure all of the booth
and Plug and Play-compatible devices. However, this capability means
absolutely nothing unless you are using a Plug and Play operating system
such as Windows 95. By choosing “manual”, you are allowed to
configure the IRQ Resources and DMA Resources.
IRQ RESOURCES:
You may assign each system interrupt a type, depending on the type of
device using the interrupt.
DMA RESOURCES:
When resources are controlled manually, assign each system DMA channel
a type, depending on the type of device using the DM channel.
PCI/VGA PALETTE SNOOP:
Leave this field at disabled.

AUTO DETECT PCI CLK:
This item allows you to enable or disable auto detect PCI Clock.
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 timingcritical devices such as a clock-sensitive SCSI device.
