F21P - 3U CompactPCI® PlusIO Intel® Core™ i7 CPU Board
The F21P versatile 4HP/3U single-board computer is a continuation of MEN's
proven range of Intel® CPU boards. It is equipped with the high-performance
second generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor running at 2.1 GHz and offering the
latest quad core processor architecture from Intel® with full 64-bit support. The
CPU card delivers an excellent graphics performance and is designed especially for
embedded systems which require high computing performance with low power
consumption.
The F21P offers a 32-bit/33-MHz CompactPCI® bus interface and can also be used
without a bus system. 4 USB 2.0 ports, 4 PCI Express® x1 links, 2 SATA 3 Gb/s and
2 SATA 6 Gb/s interfaces as well as one Gigabit Ethernet are led to the J2 rear I/O
connector which is compatible with the PICMG 2.30 CompactPCI® PlusIO
specification.
The F21P is equipped with fast DDR3 DRAM which is soldered to the F21P to
guarantee optimum shock and vibration resistance. An mSATA disk and a
microSD™ card device which are connected via a USB interface and a SATA
channel offer nearly unlimited space for user applications.
The standard I/O available at the front panel of F21P includes graphics on a VGA
connector, two PCIe®-driven Gigabit Ethernet as well as two USB 2.0 ports.
The F21P can be extended by different side cards. Additional functions include a
digital video interface for flat panel connection via DVI (multimedia), a variety of
different UARTs or another four USBs, SATA for hard disk connection and HD
audio.
Thermal supervision of the processor and a watchdog for the operating system
complete the functionality of the F21P. As an option, a TPM (Trusted Platform
Module) chip can be assembled.
The F21P operates in Windows® and Linux environments as well as under real-time
operating systems that support Intel®'s multi-core architecture. The InsydeH2O™
EFI BIOS was specially designed for embedded system applications.
Equipped with Intel® components exclusively from the Intel® Embedded Line, the
F21P has a guaranteed minimum standard availability of 7 years.
The F21P is suited for a wide range of industrial applications, e.g. for monitoring,
vision and control systems as well as test and measurement. Main target markets
comprise industrial automation, multimedia, traffic and transportation, aerospace,
shipbuilding, medical engineering and robotics.
The F21P comes with a tailored passive heat sink within 4 HP height. The robust
design of the F21P make the board especially suited for use in rugged environments
with regard to shock and vibration according to applicable DIN, EN or IEC industry
standards. The F21P is also ready for coating so that it can be used in humid and
dusty environments.

Computer boards and components contain electrostatic sensitive
devices. Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage components. To
protect the board and other components against damage from static
electricity, you should follow some precautions whenever you work on
your computer.
• Power down and unplug your computer system when working on the
inside.
• Hold components by the edges and try not to touch the IC chips,
leads, or circuitry.
• Use a grounded wrist strap before handling computer components.
• Place components on a grounded antistatic pad or on the bag that
came with the component whenever the components are separated
from the system.
• Only store the board in its original ESD-protected packaging. Retain
the original packaging in case you need to return the board to MEN
for repair.

About this Document
RoHS
Since July 1, 2006 all MEN standard products comply with RoHS legislation.
Since January 2005 the SMD and manual soldering processes at MEN have already been completely lead-free.
Between June 2004 and June 30, 2006 MEN’s selected component suppliers have changed delivery to RoHScompliant parts. During this period any change and status was traceable through the MEN ERP system and the
boards gradually became RoHS-compliant.
WEEE Application
The WEEE directive does not apply to fixed industrial plants and tools. The compliance is the responsibility of the
company which puts the product on the market, as defined in the directive; components and sub-assemblies are
not subject to product compliance.
In other words: Since MEN does not deliver ready-made products to end users, the WEEE directive is not
applicable for MEN. Users are nevertheless recommended to properly recycle all electronic boards which have
passed their life cycle.
Nevertheless, MEN is registered as a manufacturer in Germany. The registration number can be provided on
request.

Functional Description
The following describes the individual functions of the board and their
configuration on the board. There is no detailed description of the individual
controller chips and the CPU.
More information on the individual controller chips and the CPU can be obtained
from the data sheets or data books of the semiconductor manufacturer
concerned, see Chapter 5.1 Literature and Web Resources on page 79.
2.1
Power Supply
The power sequence is compliant to the ATX Power Supply Design Guide.
There are only two possible ways to power the F21P:
• +5V, +3.3V and +12V via CompactPCI connector J1
• +5V only via CompactPCI connector J1
!
2.2
To supply the board with 3.3V and 5V is not allowed and may cause
serious damage. If +3.3V are supplied via CompactPCI connector J1,
the +12V supply always has to be present.
If the +12V are not present, the board automatically generates +3.3V
and also feeds them to the backplane, which would cause a conflict
with the external +3.3V supply.
Board Supervision
The F21P provides an intelligent board management controller (BMC) with the
following main features:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Board power sequencing control
Voltage supervision
System watchdog
Software reset functionality
Error state logging
Power mode settings
SMBus communication with main CPU
The watchdog device monitors the board on operating system level. If enabled, the
watchdog must be triggered by application software. If the trigger is overdue, the
watchdog initiates a board reset and this way can put the system back into operation
when the software hangs.
The watchdog uses a configurable time interval or is disabled. Settings are made
through BIOS or via an MEN software driver.
In addition, the F21P uses a temperature device to measure the local board
temperature.
MEN Mikro Elektronik GmbH

Functional Description
MEN provides dedicated software drivers for the board controller and the
temperature device. For a detailed description of the functionality of the driver
software refer to the drivers’ documentation.
You can find any driver software and documentation available for
download on MEN’s website.
2.3
Intel Active Management Technology (AMT)
F21P boards equipped with an Intel Core i7 or i5 processor support Intel Active
Management Technology (AMT 7.0). Intel AMT is powered by a separate hardware
engine in Intel chipsets which enables e.g. out-of-band (OOB) diagnostics, remote
control, IDE-Redirect, Serial-over-LAN (SOL), agent presence checking and
network traffic filtering.
AMT is supported on the lower front Ethernet interface (ETH2) of the F21P. For
information on how to enable the AMT BIOS extension see Chapter 3 BIOS.
MEN provides an application note on how to switch on the AMT
functionality and log onto the CPU board via VNC afterwards.
!
If the supercapacitor and/or the battery is empty, the F21P loses its
complete AMT settings due to Intel’s security standards.
As an option, a BIOS setting can be implemented which makes it possible to switch
the AMT interface to the backplane via the Ethernet rear I/O card. In this case, there
is only one Ethernet interface (ETH1) available at the front panel.
Contact MEN’s sales team for further information.
2.4
Trusted Platform Module
As an assembly option, a trusted platform module to protect the content of the SATA
storage devices can be implemented on the F21P. A TPM module compliant to the
TPM v1.2 specification can be used.
Contact MEN’s sales team for further information.
MEN Mikro Elektronik GmbH
20F021P00 E4 – 2015-01-13

Functional Description
2.5
Reset Behavior and Power States
The F21P can be reset using the reset button on the front panel or the PBRST# signal
on the backplane. It supports the S5, S4, S3, S0 and Mx power states. All voltages
which are not required are deactivated while the board is into a lower power state.
See also Chapter 2.17 Reset Button and Status LED on page 55.
2.6
Real-Time Clock
The board includes a real-time clock connected to the chipset. For data retention
during power off the RTC is backed up by a supercapacitor. The supercapacitor
gives an autonomy of approx. 14 hours when fully loaded. Under normal conditions,
replacement should be superfluous during lifetime of the board. The RTC can
generate interrupt requests to the chipset.
The RTC has an accuracy of approximately 1.7 seconds/day (11 minutes/year) at
25°C.
For retention of time/date data after a power off of more than 8-10 hours the RTC is
also backed by a battery.
For ordering options see MEN’s website.

Ethernet Interfaces
The F21P has three Ethernet interfaces connected to the processor and the PCH via
three x1 PCI Express (PCIe) links. They are controlled by two Intel 82574L
Ethernet controllers and one Intel 82579LM Ethernet PHY. They support 10 Mbits/s
up to 1000 Mbits/s as well as full-duplex operation and autonegotiation. The lower
front interface supports AMT.
The unique MAC address is set at the factory and should not be
changed. Any attempt to change this address may create node or bus
contention and thereby render the board inoperable.
!
The naming of the interfaces may differ depending on the operating system. The
MAC addresses on F21P are:
• LAN1 (upper front interface):
- 0x 00 C0 3A AE 80 00 - 0x 00 C0 3A AE FF FF
• LAN2 (lower front interface):
- 0x 00 C0 3A AF 00 00 - 0x 00 C0 3A AF 7F FF
• LAN3 (rear I/O) :
- 0x 00 C0 3A AF 80 00 - 0x 00 C0 3A AF FF FF
where "00 C0 3A" is the MEN vendor code. The last six digits describe the range
from which the addresses for the board are taken. The serial number is added to the
first number in the range:
• Serial number 0042 (0x2A): 0x 80 00 + 0x 00 2A = 0x 80 2A.
Also see Chapter 5.2 Finding out the Product’s Article Number, Revision and
Serial Number on page 81.
2.12.1
Front-Panel Connection
Two standard RJ45 connectors are available at the front panel. There are two status
LEDs for each channel at the front panel.
The pin assignment corresponds to the Ethernet specification IEEE802.3.

Side-Card Interface
MEN offers a number of side cards for F21P, featuring different I/O functionality.
The side cards are all standard 3U Eurocards in 4 HP (single) width. Access to I/O
connectors is given directly from the front panel.
The side-card connector is located at the top side of the board, so that one side card
can be attached to the right side of the F21P. As an option, the F21P can also be
supplied with the side-card connector at the bottom side, so that the side card may
be attached to the left side of the CPU.
The side-card connector on F21P supports the following interfaces:
•
•
•
•
•
•
One SATA channel (switchable to port A or B via BIOS)
Four USB interfaces
Three PCI Express x1 links
HD audio interface
One digital video output supporting SDVO, DisplayPort and HDMI (Port B)
One digital video output supporting DisplayPort and HDMI (Port C)
!
Neither the +3.3V nor the +5V pins of the expansion interface
connector are protected against a short-circuit situation! This
connector therefore should be used exclusively for attachment of a
side card.
See MEN’s website for available side cards and board versions.

Functional Description
2.15
PCI Express
2.15.1
General
PCI Express (PCIe) succeeds PCI and AGP and offers higher data transfer rates.
As opposed to the PCI bus, PCIe is no parallel bus but a serial point-to-point
connection. Data is transferred using so-called lanes, with each lane consisting of a
line pair for transmission and a second pair for reception. Individual components are
connected using switches.
At the electrical level, each lane consists of two unidirectional LVDS (Low Voltage
Differential Signaling) pairs. Transmit and receive are separate differential pairs, for
a total of 4 data wires per lane.
PCIe supports full-duplex operation and uses a clock rate of 1.25 GHz. This results
in a data rate of max. 250 MB/s per lane in each direction. (The standard PCI bus
with 32 bits/33 MHz only allows a maximum of 133 MB/s.)
If you use only one lane, you speak of a PCIe x1 link. You can couple several lanes
to increase the data rate, e.g. x2 with 2 lanes up to a x32 link using 32 lanes.
In addition, PCIe supports hot plug, for instance to exchange defect expansion
boards during operation.
In terms of software, most operating systems can handle PCI Express boards just as
well as the old PCI.
2.15.2
Implementation on F21P
On F21P the three Gigabit Ethernet channels are permanently connected via PCIe
x1 links. Another three x1 links are available for use over a side card. This means
that the side card implementation determines the usage of these three links.
Four PCIe x1 links are led to the J2 rear I/O connector in compliance with the
CompactPCI PlusIO standard PICMG 2.30. The interfaces on the J2 connector and
the side-card connector support the PCI Express specification 2.x with a data
transfer rate of 5 Gbits/s per lane.

Functional Description
2.16
CompactPCI Interface
The F21P is a 3U CompactPCI system slot board. It implements a 32-bit PCI
interface to the CompactPCI backplane which uses a +3.3 V signaling voltage. It
also tolerates +5 V.
The CompactPCI bus connects to the processor via a PCI-Express-to-PCI-Bridge.
The board supports seven external PCI bus devices.
In combination with a specific side card the F21P can also perform system-slot
functionality in a CompactPCI Express system.
2.16.1
CompactPCI PlusIO Rear I/O
The F21P is also compliant to the CompactPCI PlusIO standard PICMG 2.30. This
means that it offers a fixed pin assignment of one Gigabit Ethernet, 4 SATA, 4 PCI
Express and 4 USB interfaces at the J2 connector. A second Gigabit Ethernet
interface can be implemented by switching one front interface to the rear.
As a result, the pin assignment of the F21P rear I/O connector J2 is not compliant
anymore to the rear I/O of the F14, F15, F17 and F18.
MEN offers a rear I/O transition module on which all interfaces from the J2
connector can be accessed, the CT12.
Note: The F21P supports one Gigabit Ethernet interface at the rear whereas the
PICMG 2.30 CompactPCI PlusIO standard supports up to two.
See MEN’s website for further information.
2.16.2
CompactPCI Connector J1
The pin assignment of connector J1 as defined in the CompactPCI specification will
not be repeated here. The voltage supply for the battery can optionally be made
available on the A4 pin on the conduction-cooled board version.

Reset Button and Status LED
The F21P has a reset button and one status LED at the front panel. The reset button
is recessed within the front panel and requires a tool, e.g. paper clip to be pressed,
preventing the button from being inadvertently activated.
The yellow status LED shows board status messages. The LED is controlled by the
board controller. It is switched on when the BIOS starts, switched off when the
board is switched off and flashing slowly when the board is in stand-by (S3) status.
During normal operation the LED can be switched on and off using the MEN driver
for the board controller.
See MEN’s website for further information.
In case of a board failure, the LED displays the following error messages:

BIOS
The F21P is equipped with an InsydeH2O setup utility from Insyde Software.
InsydeH2O is Insyde Software's firmware product line designed to replace
traditional PC BIOS. It is an implementation of the Intel's Platform Innovation
Framework for UEFI /EFI. The UEFI/EFI specification defines a new model for the
interface between operating systems and platform firmware. This interface consists
of data tables that contain platform-related information, plus boot and runtime
service calls that are available to the operating system and its loader. Together, these
provide a standard environment for booting an operating system and running preboot applications. This product line is the next generation of PC BIOS technology.
The ">" character in front of a menu item means that a sub-menu is available. An
"x" in front of a menu item means that there is a configuration option which needs to
be activated through a higher configuration option before being accessible.
The F21P BIOS has two configuration modes. One mode shows only a selection of
the most important items and hides items where normally no changes in the settings
are required. This manual only describes the short mode. You can easily switch
between the two modes via a menu item.
For more details see Chapter Full Configuration Mode on page 58
