System Overview

1.1 Introduction

Powell Inc., a world-leading innovator in the Industrial PC (IPC) market and a member of the Intel® Communications Alliance, has launched its new

WADE-8078 series in response to market demand for a simplified embedded system board

(ESB) that combines a smaller footprint, lower power consumption, robust computing power and with longevity support.

Built with Intel’s latest chipset, WADE-8078 series take advantage of the Intel®

Atom™ Valleyview E38XX series processors.

WADE-8078 has lots of features, also features one SATA connectors (SATA

3Gb/s) storage specification , one DDR3 SO-DIMM memory slot for DDR3L ECC

SDRAM up to 4GB, support total 3 USB ports (1x USB3.0 on REAR I/O,2x USB2.0 on board), VGA / HDMI display ,one Gigabit Ethernet, and one PCIe x4 slot

(PCIe x2 signal) and support CFEX.

WADE-8078’s ability to drive two displays simultaneously makes them particularly suitable for lottery and gaming applications. They are also ideal for applications such as point-of-sale (POS), digital signage, kiosks .

The WADE-8078 package should cover the following basic items

9 One WADE-8078 Mini-ITX Main Board

9 One 8 Pin Power Cable

9

One SATA Cable

9 One I/O Shield bracket

9 One Installation Resources CD-Title

If any of these items is damaged or missing, please contact your vendor and keep all packing materials for future replacement and maintenance.

Chapter 2

Hardware Configuration

This chapter gives the definitions and shows the positions of jumpers, headers and connectors. All of the configuration jumpers on WADE-8078 are in the proper position. The default settings shipped from factory are marked with an asterisk (♣).

In general, jumpers on the single board computer are used to select options for certain features. Some of the jumpers are designed to be user-configurable, allowing for system enhancement. The others are for testing purpose only and should not be altered. To select any option, cover the jumper cap over (SHORT) or remove (NC) it from the jumper pins according to the following instructions. Here NC stands for

“Not Connect”.

BIOS Setup Information

WADE-8078 is equipped with the Phoenix BIOS stored in Flash ROM. These BIOS has a built-in Setup program that allows users to modify the basic system configuration easily. This type of information is stored in CMOS RAM so that it is retained during power-off periods. When system is turned on, WADE-8078 communicates with peripheral devices and checks its hardware resources against the configuration information stored in the CMOS memory. If any error is detected, or the CMOS parameters need to be initially defined, the diagnostic program will prompt the user to enter the SETUP program. Some errors are significant enough to abort the start up.

4.1 Entering Setup -- Launch System Setup

Power on the computer and the system will start POST (Power On Self Test) process.

When the message below appears on the screen, press <Del> key will enter BIOS setup screen.

Press <Del> to enter SETUP

If the message disappears before responding and still wish to enter Setup, please restart the system by turning it OFF and On or pressing the RESET button. It can be also restarted by pressing <Ctrl>, <Alt>, and <Delete> keys on keyboard simultaneously.

Press <F1> to Run General Help or Resume

The BIOS setup program provides a General Help screen. The menu can be easily called up from any menu by pressing <F1>. The Help screen lists all the possible keys to use and the selections for the highlighted item. Press <Esc> to exit the Help screen.

Troubleshooting

This chapter provides a few useful tips to quickly get WADE-8078 running with success. As basic hardware installation has been addressed in Chapter 2, this chapter will primarily focus on system integration issues, in terms of BIOS setting, and OS diagnostics.

5.1 Hardware Quick Installation

ATX Power Setting

Unlike other Single board computer, WADE-8078 supports ATX only. Therefore, there is no other setting that really needs to be set up. However, there is 8 Pin ATX

Connector—CN1 in the WADE-8078 board.

Serial ATA

Unlike IDE bus, each Serial ATA channel can only connect to one SATA hard disk at a time; The installation of Serial ATA is simpler and easier than IDE, because SATA hard disk doesn’t require setting up Master and Slave, which can reduce mistake of hardware installation.

The WADE-8078 can support two SATA interface (SATAII, 3.0 GB/s) with AHCI or

IDE mode. It has two J11 SATA ports in the board.

WADE-8078 User’s Manual 5-1

Troubleshooting

It is assumed that users have correctly adopted modules and connected all the devices cables required before turning on ATX power. 204-pin DDR3 Memory, keyboard, mouse, SATA hard disk, VGA connector, power cable of the device, ATX accessories are good examples that deserve attention. With no assurance of properly and correctly accommodating these modules and devices, it is very possible to encounter system failures that result in malfunction of any device.

To make sure that you have a successful start with WADE-8078, it is recommended, when going with the boot-up sequence, to hit “Del” key and enter the BIOS setup menu to tune up a stable BIOS configuration so that you can wake up your system far well.

Loading the default optimal setting

When prompted with the main setup menu, please scroll down to “Load Setup

Defaults”, press “Enter” and select “Yes” to load in default optimal BIOS setup. This will force your BIOS setting back to the initial factory configuration. It is recommended to do this so you can be sure the system is running with the BIOS setting that Portwell has highly endorsed. As a matter of fact, users can load the default BIOS setting any time when system appears to be unstable in boot up sequence.

5.3 Q&A

Information & Support

Question: I forget my password of system BIOS, what am I supposed to do?

Answer: You can switch off your power supply then find the JP6 to set it from 1-2 short to 2-3 short and wait 5 seconds to clean your password then set it back to 1-2 short to switch on your power supply.
