INTRODUCTION
The PCI Pentium™ TRS system board is a high-performance
personal computer system board based on a 3.3V version of the
Pentium microprocessor ~ the P54 microprocessor. The system
board supports the Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) Local
Bus standard and provides four 32-bit PCI bus master slots.
The system board uses the highly integrated Intel 82430VX Chipset
to support the PCI / ISA and Green standards, and to provide the
Host / PCI bridge. The 82430VX chip set integrates all system
control functions.
1.1 System Board Specifications
CPU:
e Socket 7 supports Intel®Pentinm™ family--P54C and P33C
75/90/100/120/133/150/166/200MHz.
e The Cyrix®6x836 and AMD®KS5 are also supported.
Chip Set:
+ Intel® 82430VX chip set.
Main Memory:
e Supports three memory banks using four 72-pin SIMM sockets
and one 168-pin DIMM sockets.
« Upto 128 Mbytes main memory.
e Supports EDO Hyper Page Mode DRAM or Standard Fast Page
mode DRAM, and SDRAM.

Memory Bank Confisuration
The system board supports a maximum of 128M of memory, and
provides four 72-pin SIMMs (Single In-line Memory Module) and
one 168-pin DIMM sockets. Each bank supports 4M, 8M, 16M,
and 32M. That is, 2MB and 16MB is the minimum and maximum
for one 72-pin single side memory module, And 4MB and 32MB 1s
the minimum and maximum for one 72-pin single side memory
module. This board supports 4 RAS. Each RAS supports memory
ranging from 4MB to 32MB.

Warning! Memory bank 0 de 1's SIMM power level is 5 vols.
Memory bank 2 s DIMM power level is 3,3.volts. We
suggest not to Install both the SIMM & DIMM at the same
time. But if vou want to install both SIMM & DIMM slot,
vou must use a 3.3 volt DIMM with 5 volt 1/0 signal
tolerance otherwise it may cause damage to the DIMM.
CHAPTER 2 HARWARE INTALLATION
Note 1: Important! The DIMM bank only support 3.3V EDO,
3.3 FP and unbuffered 3.3V 2-clock type SDRAM
Module. It can’t support 4-clock type SDRAM Module
Note 2: Make sure the SIMM banks are using the same type and
equal size and density memory.
Note 3-10 operate properly at least two 72-pin SIMM module
must be installed in the same bank or the one 168-pin
OIMM module must be installed. The system cannot
operate with only one 72-pin SIMM module installed.
vote 4. This mainboard supports Table Free so memory can
be installed on Bank 0 (SIMMI + SIMM2) Bank !
MSIMM3 + SIMMA), or Bank 2 (DIMMI).
