adhered to.

Wear an anti-static wristband: Wearing a simple anti-static wristband can
help to prevent ESD from damaging the board.

Self-grounding: Before handling the board, touch any grounded conducting
material. During the time the board is handled, frequently touch any
conducting materials that are connected to the ground.

Use an anti-static pad: When configuring the
NANO-PV-D4252/N4552/D5252, place it on an antic-static pad. This reduces
the possibility of ESD damaging the NANO-PV-D4252/N4552/D5252.

Only handle the edges of the PCB: When handling the PCB, hold the PCB
by the edges.

NANO-PV-D4252/N4552/D5252 EPIC SBC
B.1 One Key Recovery Introduction
The IEI one key recovery is an easy-to-use front end for the Norton Ghost system backup
and recovery tool. The one key recovery provides quick and easy shortcuts for creating a
backup and reverting to that backup or for reverting to the factory default settings.
To create the system backup the main storage device must be split into two partitions
(three partitions for Linux). The first partition will be for the operating system, while the
second partition will be invisible to the operating system and contain the backup made by
the one key recovery software.
B.1.1 System Requirement
The partition created for recovery images must be big enough to contain both the factory
default image and the user backup image. The size must be calculated before creating the
partitions. Please take the following table as a reference when calculating the size of the
partition.

NOTE:
Specialized tools are required to change the partition size if the
operating system is already installed.

NOTE:
The recovery CD can only be used with IEI products. The software will fail
to run and a warning message will appear when used on non-IEI hardware.
B.2 Setup Procedure for Windows
Prior to using the recovery tool to backup or restore system, a few setup procedures are
required.
Step 1: Hardware and BIOS setup
Step 2: Create partitions
Step 3: Install operating system, drivers and system applications.
Step 4: Build-up recovery partition
Step 5: Create factory default imageStep0:
The detailed descriptions are described in the following sections.

D Watchdog Timer
Page 128
NANO-PV-D4252/N4552/D5252 EPIC SBC
NOTE:
The following discussion applies to DOS environment. IEI support is
contacted or the IEI website visited for specific drivers for more
sophisticated operating systems, e.g., Windows and Linux.
The Watchdog Timer is provided to ensure that standalone systems can always recover
from catastrophic conditions that cause the CPU to crash. This condition may have
occurred by external EMI or a software bug. When the CPU stops working correctly,
Watchdog Timer either performs a hardware reset (cold boot) or a Non-Maskable Interrupt
(NMI) to bring the system back to a known state.
A BIOS function call (INT 15H) is used to control the Watchdog Timer:
INT 15H:
AH – 6FH Sub-function:
AL – 2:
Sets the Watchdog Timer’s period.
BL:
Time-out value (Its unit-second is dependent on the item “Watchdog
Timer unit select” in CMOS setup).
Table D-1: AH-6FH Sub-function
Call sub-function 2 to set the time-out period of Watchdog Timer first. If the time-out value
is not zero, the Watchdog Timer starts counting down. While the timer value reaches zero,
the system resets. To ensure that this reset condition does not occur, calling sub-function
2 must periodically refresh the Watchdog Timer. However, the Watchdog timer is disabled
if the time-out value is set to zero.
A tolerance of at least 10% must be maintained to avoid unknown routines within the
operating system (DOS), such as disk I/O that can be very time-consuming.
Page 129
NANO-PV-D4252/N4552/D5252 EPIC SBC
NOTE:
When exiting a program it is necessary to disable the Watchdog Timer,
otherwise the system resets.
