Sections include: • Card specifications • Card layout and dimensions Chapter 1 General Information 1 CHAPTER Introduction The PCM-5894/5892 is a Pentium single board computer with one onboard PCI SVGA controller, one PCI Ethernet interface and one PCI expansion slot. Equipped with a 64-bits local bus architecture, the PCM-5894/5892 releases Pentium's full potential and provides unprecedented performance compared to current 32-bit proces- sor boards. The PCM-5894/5892 offers all the functions of an industrial computer on a single board, but fits in the space of a 5¼" floppy drive (only 5.75" x 8"). For maximum performance, the PCM- 5894/5892 also supports a 512 KB. L2 cache onboard. An SSD interface supports one 32-pin DIP socket for the M-Systems DiskOnChip 2000 series, memory capacity from 2MB to 72MB. Onboard features include four serial ports (three RS-232 and one RS-232/422/485), one multi-mode parallel (ECP/EPP/SPP) port, one floppy drive controller and one keyboard/PS-2 mouse interface. The built-in high speed PCI IDE controller supports both PIO and bus master modes. Up to two IDE devices can be connected, including large hard disks, CD-ROM drives, tape backup drives, and other IDE devices. The PCM-5894/5892 also features power management to minimize power consumption. It complies with the “Green Function” standard and supports three types of power saving features: Doze mode, Standby mode, and Suspend mode. In addition, the board’s watchdog timer can automatically reset the system or generate an interrupt in case the system stops due to a program bug or EMI. Onboard peripherals with true PCI performance The PCM-5894/5892 is a highly integrated, all-in-one single board computer. All onboard peripherals (including PCI flat panel/VGA interface, PCI Ethernet, and PCI IDE) adopt PCI technology and operate through an internal PCI bus. Integrating a Pentium board with a PCI architecture has unleashed a revolutionary level of performance. The PCM-5894/5892 is the smallest and most powerful all-in-one Pentium board available. 2 PCM-5894/5892 User Manual Features • Accepts Intel Pentium MMX 166~233MHz, AMD-K6/200~300AFR, Cyrix /IBM/6x86MX-PR166~266GP and IDT winchip C6 180~225MHz • DiskOnChip (SSD) up to 72MB • C&T 65554 LCD controller supports 36-bit TFT panels • 10Base-T/100Base-TX Ethernet, supports remote boot ROM function • Bus Master IDE and Ultra DMA/33 supported • Three RS-232 and one RS-232/422/485 serial port Chapter 1 General Information 3 Specifications Standard SBC functions • CPU: Intel Pentium MMX 166~233MHz, AMD-K6/200~300AFR, Cyrix / IBM/6x86MX-PR166~266GP and IDT winchip C6 180~225MHz • BIOS: Award FLASH BIOS • Chipset: SiS5582 (PCM-5892)/SiS5598(PCM-5894) • Level 2 cache: Onboard 512KB pipeline burst L2 cache. • System memory: 8MB to 128MB.

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 represen- tative before you make any changes. 14 PCM-5894/5892 User Manual CPU installing and upgrading You can upgrade to a more powerful Pentium CPU or compatible at any time. Simply remove the old CPU, install the new one, and set the jumpers for the new CPU type and speed. Warning! Always disconnect the power cord from your chassis when you are working on it. Do not make connections while the power is on as sensitive electronic components can be dam- aged by the sudden rush of power. Only experi- enced electronics personnel should open the PC chassis. Caution! Always ground yourself to remove any static charge before touching the PC board. 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. When you install a new CPU, be sure to adjust the board settings, such as CPU type and CPU clock. Improper settings may damage the CPU. Chapter 2 Installation 15 Installing DRAM (SIMMs) The mainboard provides two 72-pin SIMM (Single In-line Memory Module) sockets and supports either Fast Page Mode (FPM) or Extended Data Output (EDO) DRAM with a speed of at least 70 ns. Unlike most other CPU cards, the mainboard supports both single and dual insertion into the memory bank. Depending on the combination of modules you use, you can install from 8MB to 128MB of RAM. Installing SIMMs NOTE: The modules can only fit into a socket one way. Their chips must face the CPU, and their gold pins must point down into the SIMM socket. Due to that the 72-pin SIMM module can only support 32 bit data output, in order to full fill tha 64 bit data input Pentium or compatible processors requirement. It is essential to use two identical 72-pin sIMM modules w/same memory capacity and type. 1. Ensure that all power sources are disconnected. 2. Slip the memory module into the socket at a 45 degree angle. 3. 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 corre- spond to the circular holes on the ends of the module. 4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 for each module you install. 16 PCM-5894/5892 User Manual Internal VGA setting (J1) (for PCM-5892 chipset only) This jumpers is reserved for factory use.

You can use any combination of 5¼" (360 KB and 1.2 MB) and/or 3½" (720 KB, 1.44 MB, and 2.88 MB) drives. A 34-pin daisy-chain drive connector cable is required for a dual- drive system. On 1 end of the cable is a 34-pin flat-cable connector. On the other end are two sets of floppy disk drive connectors. Each set consists of a 34-pin flat-cable connector (usually used for 3½" drives) and a printed-circuit board connector (usually used for 5¼" drives). Connecting the floppy drive 1. Plug the 34-pin flat-cable connector into CN16. Make sure that the red wire corresponds to pin 1 on the connector. 2. Attach the appropriate connector on the other end of the cable to the floppy drive(s). You can use only one connector in the set. The set on the end (after the twist in the cable) connects to the A: drive. The set in the middle connects to the B: drive. 3. If you are connecting a 5¼" floppy drive, line up the slot in the printed circuit board with the blocked-off part of the cable connector. If you are connecting a 3½" floppy drive, you may have trouble determining which pin is pin number 1. Look for a number printed on the circuit board indicating pin number 1. Also, the connector on the floppy drive connector may have a slot. When the slot is up, pin number 1 should be on the right. Check the documentation that came with the drive for more information. If you desire, connect the B: drive to the connectors in the middle of the cable as described above.

However, it depends on the CPU/chipset design. Quick Power On Self Test This category speeds up Power On Self Test (POST) after you power up the computer. If it is set to Enabled, BIOS will shorten or skip some check items during POST. Boot Sequence This category determines which drive to search first for the operating system. Swap Floppy Drive This item allows you to swap the floppy drive assignments so that drive A is treated as drive B and drive B is treated as drive A under DOS. The default setting is Disabled. Boot Up Floppy Seek During POST, the BIOS will determine if the floppy disk drive installed is 40 or 80 tracks. 360KB type is 40 tracks while 760KB, 1.2MB, and 1.44MB are all 80 tracks. Boot Up NumLock Status This allows you to determine the default state of the numeric keypad on an IBM-compatible extended keyboard. Boot Up System Speed This allows you to determine the Boot Up Speed. The choices are High/Low. Chapter 3 Award BIOS Setup 55 Gate A20 Option This entry allows you to select how gate A20 is handled. Gate A20 is a device used to address memory above 1 MB. Initially, gate A20 was handled via a pin on the keyboard. Today keyboards still provide this support, however it is more common and much faster for the system chipset to provide support for gate A20. The choices are thus: Normal and Fast. Security Option This category allows you to limit access to the system. The choices are System: which requires a password at boot up and Setup: which only requires a password to access the setup utility. Video BIOS Shadow Determines whether the video display card BIOS will be copied into system DRAM in order to increase display speed and is required for system performance. However, it is optional depending on the chipset design. The default setting is Enabled. Shadowing Address Ranges The next six lines, from C8000-CBFFF Shadow to DC000-DFFFF Shadow are address ranges for shadowing other expansion card ROMs. If there are any expansion cards with ROMs installed in your system, you have to know the address range they use in order to shadow them specifically. The default setting for all of these is Disabled. 56 PCM-5894/5892 User Manual CHIPSET features setup By choosing the BIOS FEATURES SETUP option from the INITIAL SETUP SCREEN menu.

RAS Precharge Time DRAM must continually be refreshed or it will lose its data. Normally, DRAM is refreshed entirely as the result of a single request. This option allows you to determine the number of CPU clocks allocated for the Row Address Strobe to accumulate its charge before the DRAM is refreshed. If insufficient time is allowed, refresh may be incomplete and data lost. RAS to CAS Delay When DRAM is refreshed, both rows and columns are addressed separately. This setup item allows you to determine the timing of the transition from Row Address Strobe (RAS) to Column Address Strobe (CAS). CPU to PCI Post Write Set this option to Enabled to give priority to posted messages from the CPU to PCI bus. CPU to PCI Burst Men_WR Set this option to Enabled to allow write instructions to be com- bined in PCI burst mode. The settings are Enabled or Disabled. ISA Bus Clock Frequency This item allows you to select the ISA bus clock PCICLK/3 OR PCICLK/4. System BIOS Cacheable When enabled, accesses to the system BIOS ROM addressed at F0000H-FFFFFH are cached, provided that the cache controller is enabled. Chapter 3 Award BIOS Setup 59 Video BIOS Cacheable As with caching the System BIOS above, enabling the Video BIOS cache will cause access to video BIOS addressed at C0000H to C7FFFH to be cached, if the cache controller is also enabled. Memory Hole at 15M-16M In order to improve performance, certain space in memory can be reserved for ISA cards. The memory must be mapped into the memory space below 16 MB.

In the power management scheme there are four system states which proceed in the following sequence: Normal � Doze � Standby � Suspend 62 PCM-5894/5892 User Manual There are four selections for Power Management (PM): Disabled Turns off PM Max Saving Maximized power saving by activating maxi- mum power saving settings after one minute of system inactivity. Min Saving Produces less power saving by activating moderate power saving settings after one hour of system inactivity. User Defined You set the power saving options manually. With the exception of Disabled, three of the above selections have "fixed-mode" settings. Therefore, when PM is set to Disabled, some items which are predefined will become unmodifiable. PM Control by APM When this is set to Yes, the Advanced Power Management feature in Microsoft Windows controls power management operation. The default setting is No. Video Off Option User can select 4 different modes for turning off the video. The modes are a function of the PM mode of the computer. The choices are All Modes�Off, Always On, Suspend�Off, and Susp, St- by�Off. The table below summarizes the behavior of the monitor in relation to the four PM modes. PM Mode Monitor Behavior All Modes Off - Always On Suspend Off Susp, Stby Off For example, if you choose Suspend�Off, then the monitor will turn off if the computer is in the Suspend PM mode. Chapter 3 Award BIOS Setup 63 Video Off Method This governs monitor power saving by controlling how power management blanks the monitor screen. The default setting blanks the screen and turns off vertical and horizontal scanning and requires a monitor with "green" features. If you don't have this type of monitor, use the Blank option. DPMS (Display Power Management System) allows the BIOS to control the video display card if the card has the DPMS feature. V/H SYNC+Blank (Default) BLANK (non-green monitor, less saving) DPMS (Display card must support DPMS) Modem Use IRQ If you have a modem installed in your system, you can enter which IRQ it is using so that APM can control it. Hot Key SMI This allows the user to use the hot key to enter the Suspend mode. Press any key to wake up the comput- er. The default setting is Disabled. 64 PCM-5894/5892 User Manual HDD Off After When enabled and after the selected time of system inactivity, the hard disk drive will be powered down while all other devices will remain active. Doze Mode This sets the period of system inactivity after which the system goes into Doze mode, the most limited power saving state. The settings range from 20 seconds to 40 minutes and can be set manually when power management is in User Define mode. The default setting is Disabled. When the system goes into power saving mode, power management will skip to the next mode in the sequence if this is disabled. Standby Mode This sets the period of system inactivity after which the system goes into Standby mode, the intermediate power saving state. The settings range from 20 seconds to 40 minutes and can be set manually when power management is in User Define mode. The default setting is Disabled. When the system goes into power saving mode, power management will skip to the next mode in the sequence if this is disabled. Suspend Mode This sets the period of system inactivity after which the system goes into Suspend mode, the maximum power saving state. The settings range from 20 seconds to 40 minutes and can be set manually when power management is in User Define mode. The default setting is Disabled. When the system goes into power saving mode, power management will skip to the next mode in the sequence if this is disabled. Chapter 3 Award BIOS Setup 65 PM Events PM events are I/O events whose occurrence can prevent the system from entering a power saving mode or can awaken the system from such a mode. In effect, the system remains alert for anything which occurs to a device which is configured as Enabled, even when the system is in a power down mode. When an I/O device wants to gain the attention of the operating system, it signals this by causing an IRQ (Interrupt ReQuest) to occur. When the operating system is ready to respond to the request, it interrupts itself and performs the service. The following is a list of IRQs, which can be disabled: • COM Ports Activity • LPT Ports Activity • HDD Ports Activity • VGA Activity • IRQ3 (COM 2) • IRQ4 (COM 1) • IRQ5 (LPT 2) • IRQ6 (Floppy Disk) • IRQ7 (LPT 1) • IRQ8 (RTC Alarm) • IRQ9 (IRQ2 Redir) • IRQ10 (Reserved) • IRQ11 (Reserved) • IRQ12 (PS/2 Mouse) • IRQ13 (Coprocessor) • IRQ14 (Hard Disk) • IRQ15 (Reserved) 66 PCM-5894/5892 User Manual PNP/PCI configuration setup By choosing the PNP/PCI CONFIGURATION SETUP option from the initial SETUP SCREEN menu, the screen below is displayed.

PCI IRQ Activated By This sets the method by which the PCI bus recognizes that an IRQ service is being requested by a device. Under all circumstances, you should retain the default configuration unless advised by your system manufacturer. The choices are Level/Edge. PCI IDE IRQ Map To This allows you to configure your system to the type of IDE disk controller in use. The more apparent difference is the type of slot being used. If you have equipped your system with a PCI controller, changing this allows you to specify which slot has the controller and which PCI interrupt (A, B, C, D) is associated with the connected hard drives. This setting refers to the hard disk drive itself, rather than individu- al partitions. Selecting PCI Auto allows the system to automatically determine how your IDE disk system is configured. Primary IDE INT# Refer to the above discription of PCI IDE IRQ. Chapter 3 Award BIOS Setup 69 Load BIOS defaults/Load setup defaults LOAD BIOS DEFAULTS loads the default system values directly from ROM. The BIOS DEFAULTS provides the most stable settings, though they do not provide optimal performance. LOAD SETUP DEFAULTS, on the other hand, provides for maximum system performance. If the stored record created by the setup utility becomes corrupted (and therefore unusable), BIOS defaults will load automatically when you turn the PCM-5894/5892 on.

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 mode 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. 82 PCM-5894/5892 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. Make sure you know the version of the application for which you are installing drivers. Your Display Driver Diskettes contain drivers for several versions of certain applications. For your driver to operate properly, you must install the driver for your version of the applica- tion program.
