Sections include: • Card specifications • Board layout Chapter 1 General Information 1 CHAPTER Introduction The SBC-456/456E is an all-in-one single board 486 computer with an onboard flat panel/CRT SVGA controller and PCI Ethernet interface (SBC-456E). It packs all the functions of an industrial computer and its display capabilities onto a single, half-size card. This means the SBC-456/456E is your absolute best solution for embedded applica- tions. The onboard PCI-bus, flat panel/CRT SVGA controller uses the CHIPS 65550 chipset with up to 2 MB of video memory (onboard 1MB). This chipset, used with the local PCI-bus, enables 32-bit graphic through- put at up to 33 MHz. Excellent for display-intensive applications, it supports various LCD types including TFT, STN, B/W, and EL. The onboard Ethernet Realtek RTL 8029AS PCI bus Ethernet controller supports remote boot ROM functions (SBC-456E only). The SBC-456/456E supports the M-Systems DiskOnChip 2000 (option- al) which is a new generation of high performance single-chip Flash Disk. It provides a Flash Disk (as a BIOS expansion) which doesn't require any bus, slots, or connectors. It is also the optimal solution for Single Board Computers because of its small size, easy integration, plug-and-play functionality, and its low power consumption. The DiskOnChip is available in capacities from 2MB to 72MB and fits in a standard 32-pin DIP socket. Another feature of the SBC-456/456E is the inclusion of a high speed, local bus IDE controller. This controller supports (through ATA PIO) mode 3 and mode 4 hard disks, enabling data transfer rates in excess of 11 MB/second. Up to four IDE devices can be connected, including large hard disks, CD-ROM drives, tape backup drives, or other IDE devices. The built-in, enhanced IDE controller provides a 4-layer, 32- bit, posted write buffer and a 4-layer, 32-bit read-prefetch buffer to boost IDE performance. 2 SBC-456/456E User Manual Onboard features include one high speed RS-232 serial port, and one RS-232/422/485 serial port with 16C550 UARTs, one bidirectional SPP/ EPP/ECP parallel port and a floppy drive controller. In addition to the 486's 16 KB of onchip cache memory, the SBC-456/456E includes an extra 128 KB of L2 onboard cache memory. If program execution is halted by a program bug or EMI, the board's watchdog timer can automatically reset the CPU or generate an interrupt. This ensures reliability in unmanned or standalone systems. All configuration display and Ethernet (SBC-456E) is done through software. A single Flash chip holds the system BIOS, VGA BIOS, and the network boot ROM image. This minimizes the number of chips and eases configuration. You can change the display BIOS or install a boot ROM simply by programming the Flash chip. The SBC-456/456E supports 5 V EDO DRAM. It also provides two 72- pin SIMM (Single In-line Memory Module) sockets for its onboard system DRAM. These sockets give you the flexibility to configure your system from 4 MB to 64 MB of DRAM using the most economi- cal combination of SIMMs. Features • CPU: AMD DX5-133 CPU (SQFP Type) • Level 2 cache: Onboard 128KB L2 cache • VGA controller: C&T 65550 with display memory 1MB onboard, 2MB optional • DiskOnChip: One 32-pin DIP socket supports the M-Systems DiskOnchip 2000 series, memory capacity from 2MB to 72MB • Ethernet interface (SBC-456E): Supports 10Base-T, remote boot ROM function Chapter 1 General Information 3 Specifications CPU: AMD DX5-133 (SQFP Type) BIOS: AMI Flash BIOS Chipset: ALi M 1487 / M1489 Level 2 cache: Onboard 128KB L2 cache System memory: 4MB to 64MB.

Chapter 2 Installation 9 CHAPTER Jumpers and connectors Connectors on the board link it to external devices such as hard disk drives, a keyboard, or floppy drives. In addition, the board has a number of jumpers that allow you to configure your system to suit your application. The table below lists the function of each of the board jumpers and connectors: Jumpers and connectors Label Function CN1 HDD connector CN2 LCD connector CN3 Floppy drive connector CN4 Parallel (printer) connector CN5 Power connector CN6 RS232/422/485 connector CN7 Ethernet connector CN8 RS-232 connector CN9 VGA connector CN10 Internal keyboard connector CN11 KB/PS2 mouse connector J1 HDD LED connector J2 Ethernet link signal LED J3 Ethernet active signal LED J4 Buzzer or external speaker J5 Reserved IR connector J6 Clear CMOS J7 Power LED & keylock J8 Fan power connector JP1 LCD SHF/ASHF clock select JP2 LCD panel voltage setting JP3 DOC address setting JP4 Hardware reset JP5 RS232/422/485 select 10 SBC-456/456E User Manual iTE IT8661F Locating jumpers and connectors CN 8 CN 5 J 5 JP 5 CN 9 CN 11 20F001N J 4 CN 10 R YCL 9623GX J 2 J 3 CN 4 RTL8029AS J 6 CN 7 JP 4 CN 6 JP 2 JP 3 CN 3 CHIPS FS65550 J 7 CN 2 JP 1 Am486TMDX5-133V 168HC CN 1 J 8 J 1 P/N: 1907456001 SBC-456 Rev.A1.1 Chapter 2 Installation 11 ALi M1489 RTC ALi M1487 Setting jumpers You configure your card to match the needs of your application by setting jumpers. A jumper is the simplest kind of electric switch. It consists of two metal pins and a small metal clip (often protected by a plastic cover) that slides over the pins to connect them. To close a jumper you connect the pins with the clip. To "open" a jumper you remove the clip. Sometimes a jumper will have three pins, labeled 1, 2, and 3. In this case you would connect either pins 1 and 2 or 2 and 3. 3 2 1 Open Closed Closed 2-3 The jumper settings are schematically depicted in this manual as follows: 1 2 3 Open Closed Closed 2-3 A pair of needle-nose pliers may be helpful when working with jumpers. If you have any doubts about the best hardware configuration for your application, contact your local distributor or sales representa- tive before you make any changes. 12 SBC-456/456E User Manual Safety precautions Warning! Always completely disconnect the power cord from your chassis whenever you are working on it. Do not make connections while the power is on because sensitive electronic components can be damaged by the sudden rush of power. Only experienced electronics personnel should open the PC chassis. Caution! Always ground yourself to remove any static charge before touching the CPU card. Modern electronic devices are very sensitive to static electric charges. Use a grounding wrist strap at all times. Place all electronic components on a static-dissipative surface or in a static-shielded bag when they are not in the chassis. Chapter 2 Installation 13 Installing DRAM (SIMMs) The SBC-456/456E CPU card provides two 72-pin SIMM (Single In- line Memory Module) sockets and supports between 4MB and 64MB. When installing SIMMs, make sure that Bank 1 is filled first. Installing SIMMs Note: that the modules can only fit into a socket one way. 1. Insert the memory module into the socket at a moderate angle. 2. Push the module toward the vertical posts at both ends of the socket until the module is upright and the retaining clips at both ends of the module click into place. When positioned correctly, the pins on top of the vertical posts should correspond to the circular holes on the ends of the module. 3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 for each module you install. Removing SIMMs If you need to remove a SIMM, follow the procedures below: 1. Supporting the SIMM with a finger, use a pen or a similarly shaped object and press one retaining clip straight down. 2. Repeat for the other side. When released, the retaining clips will push the SIMM up and out of its upright position. 3. Carefully pull the SIMM out of the socket with your fingers. 4. Repeat the above steps for each module you remove. 14 SBC-456/456E User Manual IDE hard drive connector (CN1) You can attach two Enhanced Integrated Device Electronics hard disk drives to the SBC-456/456E's internal controller. The card comes with a 40-pin flat piggyback cable. This cable has three identical 40-pin flat-cable connectors. Connecting the hard drive Wire number 1 on the cable is red or blue, and the other wires are gray. 1. Connect one end of the cable to the IDE connector. Make sure that the red (or blue) wire corresponds to pin 1 on the connec- tor, which is labeled on the board (on the right side). 2. Plug the other end of the cable to the Enhanced IDE hard drive, with pin 1 on the cable corresponding to pin 1 on the hard drive. (See your hard drive's documentation for the location of the connector.) Unlike floppy drives, you can make the connections with any of the connectors on the cable. If you install two drives, you will need to set one as the master and one as the slave. You do this using jumpers on the drives. If you install just one drive, set it as the master.

Your VGA adapter is based on the CHIPS VGA Flat Panel/CRT controller and is fully IBM VGA compatible. This controller offers a large set of extended functions and higher resolutions. If you intend to use your VGA adapter in standard VGA modes only, you do not need to install any of these drivers. Since your VGA adapter is fully compatible, it does not require any special drivers to operate in standard modes. The purpose of the enclosed software drivers is to take advantage of the extended features of the CHIPS VGA Flat Panel/CRT controller. Hardware configuration Some of the high-resolution drivers provided in this package will work only in certain system configurations. If a driver does not display correctly, try the following: 1. Change the display controller to CRT-only mode, rather than flat panel or simultaneous display mode. Some high-resolution drivers will display correctly only in CRT mode. 2. If a high-resolution mode is not supported on your system, try using a lower-resolution mode. For example, 1024 x 768 mode will not work on some systems, but 800 x 600 mode is supported on most. 66 SBC-456/456E User Manual Necessary prerequisites The instructions in this manual assume that you understand elementa- ry concepts of MS-DOS and the IBM Personal Computer. Before you attempt to install any driver or utility, you should: • Know how to copy files from a floppy disk to a directory on the hard disk • Understand the MS-DOS directory structure • Know how to format a floppy disk If you are uncertain about any of these concepts, please refer to the DOS or OS/2 user reference guides for more information, before you proceed with the installation. Before you begin Before you begin the driver software installation, you should make backup copies of the Display Driver Diskettes. Store the original disks in a safe place.
