Safety Instructions
Integrated circuits on computer boards are sensitive to static electricity.
To avoid damaging chips from electrostatic discharge, observe the
following precautions:
Do not remove boards or integrated circuits from their anti-static
packaging until you are ready to install them.
Before handling a board or integrated circuit, touch an unpainted portion
of the system unit chassis for a few seconds. This helps to discharge any
static electricity on your body.
Wear a wrist-grounding strap, available from most electronic component
stores, when handling boards and components. Fasten the ALLIGATOR
clip of the strap to the end of the shielded wire lead from a grounded
object. Please wear and connect the strap before handle the HS-6238 to
ensure harmlessly discharge any static electricity through the strap.
Please use an anti-static pad when putting down any components or
parts or tools outside the computer. You may also use an anti-static bag
instead of the pad. Please inquire from your local supplier for additional
assistance in finding the necessary anti-static gadgets.
NOTE:
DO NOT TOUCH THE BOARD OR ANY OTHER SENSITIVE
COMPONENTS WITHOUT ALL NECESSARY ANTI-STATIC
PROTECTION.
Chapter 1
General Description
The HS-6238 is a 133MHz FSB Intel® 82815 chipset-based board
designed for PCI-ISA Bus Celeron™/Coppermine™/Tualatin™
800MHz~1.2GHz CPU compatibility. These features combine and
make the HS-6238 an ideal all-in-one industrial single board computer.
Additional features include an enhanced I/O with 4COM ports, Dual
LAN and CRT/Panel interface.
Its onboard ATA/33/66/100 to IDE drive interface architecture allows
the HS-6238 to support data transfers of 33, 66 or 100MB/sec. to each
IDE drive connection. Designed with the Intel® 82815 core logic
chipset, the board supports all Celeron™/Coppermine™/Tualatin™
CPU series operating at 800MHz to 1.2GHz. The 82815 integrated
CRT/Panel display controller supports up to 1280 x 1024 at 16-bit CRT
high color resolution, and a digital RGB interface for panel displays.
For suitable installation into any size system with 8/16/32-bit ISA and/or
PCI slots operation, the board’s advanced PCI-ISA bus add-on feature
allows user to easily obtain both ISA's 16-bit and PCI's 32-bit full set
signals from a half-size PCI-ISA slot. System memory is also sufficient
with the two DIMM sockets that can support up to 512MB.
1
Additional onboard connectors include an advanced USB and IrDA
ports providing faster data transmission, and two external RJ-45
connectors for 10/100 Based Ethernet use.
To ensure the reliability in an unmanned or standalone system, the
Watchdog Timer (WDT) onboard HS-6238 is designed with pure
hardware that does not need the arithmetical functions of a real-time
clock chip. If any program causes unexpected halts to the system, the
onboard Watchdog Timer (WDT) will automatically reset the CPU or
generate an interrupt to resolve such condition.

If the system is not using the ATX power function, you may SHORT
pins 4 and 5 of CN2 so that the ATX power supply can be used as an
AT power unit. If not, CN2 must be connected to a corresponding
connector on a PCI-ISA Bus backplane in order to use the ATX Power
function.
When using the ATX Power, CN8 is used to turn on the power. In this
case, a BOSER PCI-ISA Bus backplane must complement HS-6238

Chapter 4
AMI BIOS Setup
The HS-6238 uses AMI BIOS for the system configuration. The AMI
BIOS setup program is designed to provide the maximum flexibility in
configuring the system by offering various options that could be
selected for end-user requirements. This chapter is written to assist
you in the proper usage of these features.
4.1
Starting Setup
The AMI BIOS is immediately activated when you first power on the
computer. The BIOS reads the system information contained in the
CMOS and begins the process of checking out the system and
configuring it. When it finishes, the BIOS will seek an operating system
on one of the disks and then launch and turn control over to the
operating system.
While the BIOS is in control, the Setup program can be activated in one
of two ways:
1. By pressing <Del> immediately after switching the system on, or
2. By pressing the <Del> key when the following message appears
briefly at the bottom of the screen during the POST (Power On Self
Test).
Press DEL to enter SETUP.
If the message disappears before you respond and you still wish to
enter Setup, restart the system to try again by turning it OFF then ON or
pressing the "RESET" button on the system case. You may also restart
by simultaneously pressing <Ctrl>, <Alt>, and <Delete> keys. If you do
not press the keys at the correct time and the system does not boot, an
error message will be displayed and you will again be asked to...
PRESS F1 TO CONTINUE, DEL TO ENTER SETUP
25
4.2
Using Setup
In general, you use the arrow keys to highlight items, press <Enter> to
select, use the <PageUp> and <PageDown> keys to change entries,
press <F1> for help and press <Esc> to quit. The following table
provides more detail about how to navigate in the Setup program using

PCI / Plug and Play Setup
This section describes configuring the PCI bus system. PCI, or
Personal Computer Interconnect, is a system that allows I/O devices to
operate at speeds nearing the speed the CPU itself uses when
communicating with its own special components. This section covers
some very technical items and it is strongly recommended that only
experienced users should make any changes to the default settings.

Clear NVRAM on Every Boot:
When this option is set to Yes, the system can auto clear NVRAM.
PCI Latency Timer (PCI Clocks):
This option specifies the latency timings (in PCI clocks) of PCI
devices installed in the PCI expansion slots. The available
settings are 32, 64, 96, 128, 160, 192, 224, and 248.

The settings made on this field identify the type of display
controller used in the system. The available choices are Auto,
Internal, and External AGP/External PCI.
Allocate IRQ to PCI VGA:
Set this option to Yes when allocating an IRQ to the VGA device
on the PCI bus. The available settings are Yes, and No.
DMA Channel 0/1/3/5/6/7:
These options allow you to specify the bus type used by each
DMA channel. The available settings are PnP, and ISA/EISA.
IRQ3/4/5/7/9/10/11/14/15
These options specify the bus on which the specified IRQ line is
used. The options allow you to reserve IRQs for legacy ISA
adapter cards. The options also determine if AMIBIOS should
remove an IRQ from the pool of available IRQs passed to devices
configurable by the system BIOS. The available IRQ pool is
determined by reading the ESCD NVRAM. If user needs to
remove more IRQs from the pool, he can use each option to
reserve the IRQ by assigning an ISA/EISA setting to each.
Onboard I/O is configured by AMIBIOS. All IRQs used by onboard
I/O are configured as PCI/PnP.

4.9
Peripheral Setup
The IDE hard drive controllers can support up to two separate hard
drives. These drives have a master/slave relationship that is
determined by the cabling configuration used to attach them to the
controller. Your system supports two IDE controllers--a primary and a
secondary--so you can install up to four separate hard disks.
PIO means Programmed Input/Output. Rather than having the BIOS
issue a series of commands to affect the transfer to or from the disk
drive, PIO allows the BIOS to tell the controller what it wants and then
let the controller and the CPU perform the complete task by them. This
is much simpler and more efficient (also faster).
