1.3 Memory Module Installation
The PCS-8279 has one 204-pins SODIMM slot for DDR3 1066MHz SDRAM memory
modules and supports memory up to 4GB.
These DIMM slots are intended for memory modules.
DDR3 SO-DIMM Slot
204-pin, 1.5V
Installing Memory Module
1. Locate the DIMM1 SO-DIMM slot. Align the notch on the DIMM with the key on the
slot and insert the DIMM into the slot at 45-degree angle.
2. Push the DIMM gently forwards until the slot levers click and lock the DIMM in place.
Follow the same procedures to install the second DIMM if necessary.
3. To uninstall the DIMM, flip the slot levers outwards and the DIMM will be released
instantly.
Important
You should barely see the golden pins if the DIMM memory is properly inserted in the
DIMM slot.

1.8 Power Ignition Management Quick Guide
Startup/shutdown conditions from the IGNITION signal:
1. IGNITION startup signal must be valid for 10 sec. (This is a protection mechanism
against power-noise generated inside the vehicle.).
2. IGNITION shutdown – IGNITION signal must be inactive for 5 minutes, then PIC
controller shall initiate Power Button off signal to turn off the system. (OS will
perform shut-down). Main Button shutdown event shall be generated, and then the
system will process power off completely.
Typically, the system’s power-on and power-off are controlled by IGNITION signal,
because startup PIC controller is disconnected from direct power source.
The system can be switched off by these means:
1. V e h i c l e ’ s IGNITION OFF signal.
2. ACPI OS shutdown
3. Power Button - generate ACPI event (OS Dependent)
36
Power Management
1. Power-off delay duration is selectable under BIOS. The selections for power-off duration
period are: 5 mins, 30 mins and 2 Hrs (Default setting is 5 mins).
2. Ignition On/Off status is detectable by SW
3. If the vehicle ignition status is turn-off, but the system stays running; after 5
minutes, PCS-8279 will process shut-down procedure automatically.
4. If the vehicle ignition is turned on, while the power-off delay is in progress, PCS8279 will cancel the power-off delay function, and continue to operate normally.
5. If the vehicle ignition is turned-on, while the power-off delay duration is ended, PCS-8279
will shut-down completely first, then power-on automatically.

3.3 Advanced
) CPU Configuration
49
» Max CPUID Value Limit
The Max CPUID Value Limit BIOS feature allows you to circumvent problems with older
operating systems that do not support the Intel Pentium 4 processor with Hyper-Threading
Technology. When enabled, the processor will limit the maximum CPUID input value to
03h when queried, even if the processor supports a higher CPUID input value. When
disabled, the processor will return the actual maximum CPUID input value of the
processor when queried.
» Execute Disable Bit Capability
Intel’s Execute Disable Bit functionality can prevent certain classes of malicious “buffer
overflow” attacks when combined with a supporting operating system. This functionality
allows the processor to classify areas in memory by where application code can execute
and where it cannot. When a malicious worm attempts to insert code in the buffer, the
processor disables code execution, preventing damage or worm propagation.
» Hyper Threading Technology
The processor uses Hyper Threading technology to increase transaction rates and reduces
end-user response times. The technology treats the two cores inside the processor as two
logical processors that can execute instructions simultaneously. In this way, the system
performance is highly improved. If you disable the function, the processor will use only
one core to execute the instructions. Please disable this item if your operating system
doesn’t support HT Function, or unreliability and instability may occur.
» Intel(R) SpeedStep(tm) Tech
EIST (Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology) allows the system to dynamically adjust
processor voltage and core frequency, which can result in decreased average power
consumption and decreased average heat production..

3.4 Boot
» 1st/2nd/3rd Boot Device
The items allow you to set the sequence of boot devices where BIOS attempts to load
the disk operating system.
» Try Other Boot Devices
Setting the option to [Enabled] allows the system to try to boot from other device if the
system fail to boot from the 1st/2nd/3rd boot device.
» Hard Disk Drives, CD/DVD Drives, USB Drives
These settings allow you to set the boot sequence of the specified devices.
