Hardware Installation and
Upgrade
3.1 Jumpers and Connectors
The ARK-3384 Embedded Box Computer consists of a PC-based computer that is housed in an aluminum top cover, a metal bottom case with
accessible bottom cover and Front/ Rear metal Face plate. Your HDD,
SDRAM DIMM, are all readily accessible by removing the bottom cover.
Any maintenance or hardware upgrades can be easily completed after
removing the top cover, and front with rear metal face plates. If you are a
systems integrator and need to know how to completely disassemble the
embedded box computer, you can find more useful information in Chapter 9.
Warning! Warning! Do not remove any mechanical parts,
such as the top cover, bottom cover and front/
rear face plate until you have verified that no
power is flowing within the Embedded Box Computer. Power must be switched off and the power
cord must be unplugged. Every time you service
the Embedded Box Computer.
3.2
Setting jumpers
You can configure your ARK-3384 to match the needs of your application by setting jumpers. A jumper is the simplest kind of electrical 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 pins 2 and 3.
ARK-3384 User Manual
18
The jumper settings are schematically depicted in this manual as follows:
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 representative before
you make any changes.
3.3 COM2 RS-232/422/485 Jumper setting (J3/J4/J5
Located on internal motherboard)
The COM2 port located on rear face plate of ARK-3384 unit can be configured to operate in RS-232, RS-422 or RS-485 mode by setting up the
Jumper Pins of J3/J4/J5 located on internal motherboard of ARK-3384
unit. The default setting of COM2 is RS-232.

The ARK-3384 embedded box computers provides a jumper J6 located
internally on the PCM-9380 or PCM-9386 motherboard for selecting the
LCD signal power of 5V or 3.3V. When you connect your LVDS LCD
Panel display, you need to set up J6 for LCD power setting selection for
your LVDS Panel display.

Award BIOS Setup
4.1 Introduction
The Award BIOS ROM has a built-in setup program that allows users to
modify the basic system configuration. This information is stored in battery-backed memory (CMOS RAM) and it retains the setup information
when the power is turned off.
4.1.1 CMOS RAM Auto-backup and Restore
The CMOS RAM is powered by a system board button cell battery. When
BIOS setup is completed, the data in CMOS RAM is automatically
backed up to Flash ROM. If operating in a harsh industrial environment
causes a software error, BIOS will recheck the data in CMOS RAM and
automatically restore the original data from Flash ROM to CMOS RAM
for booting.
Note: If you intend to change the CMOS setting without restoring the previous backup, <Del> must be pressed within two seconds of the "CMOS
checksum error..." display screen message appearing. Then enter the
"Setup" screen to modify the data. If the "CMOS checksum error..." message appears again and again, please check to see if the system battery
needs to be replaced.
ARK-3384 User Manual

4.2 Entering Setup
Turn on the computer and check for the .patch code. If there is a number
assigned to the patch code, it means that the BIOS supports your CPU. If
there is no number assigned to the patch code, please contact an Advantech application engineer to obtain an up-to-date patch code file. This will
ensure that your CPU system status is valid. After ensuring that a number
is assigned to the patch code, press <Del> to enter Setup.
