11 PCI-104 General Information
Specifications in accordance with the PC/104 committee (also see: PC/104 = ISA bus (8 or 16 Bit) PC/104-Plus = ISA bus + PCI-Bus PCI104 = PCI bus (without PC/104) Microbox PC 427B is equipped with a PCI104 interface PCI104 and PC/104-Plus cards are consistently usable (use of PCI signals) Old PC104 cards (only ISA bus) are not usable Up to three PC/104 modules can be integrated With extension frame Numerous suppliers of basic and special functions No manufacturer offers a full-range portfolio The long-term availability of PC104 modules from the embedded market bears considerable customer benefits Typical 3 W power consumption per slot possible Two "non-shared interrupts" available for high-performance extensions Optimum EMC connection of interfaces through slot plates on the extension frames PC104

12 Extension Frame Extension frame Extension kit PC/104
Required for the integration of PC104 modules Extend the enclosure towards the front and create space for modules Can be modularly stacked Can be ordered separately as extension kit Extension kit PC/104 6AG4070-0BA00-0XA0 6 extension frames, including mounting material and slot plates 1 extension frame (17 mm) required per PC104 module The basic device's front cover also serves as front-side cover when using the extension frame. Any interfaces of the PC104 modules are routed to the extension frame‘s slot plates via short cables. PC104

13 I/O Cards Selection and Integration
A&D SE IPC provides support in the form of pre-sales services regarding the selection and integration of PC104 extension modules. Integration by customers or by the IPC Customization Center The following steps must be performed by customers: Routing the connection cable between the PC104 module and the slot plate these are partially included in the modules‘ scope of supply Placing cutouts in the slot plates for the interface plugs PC104 modules can be integrated in the Microbox PC by means of customizing, for which the above-mentioned steps have to be performed. The delivery conditions of the manufacturers apply PC104

14 Zero Maintenance The zero maintenance of the Microbox PC results from the complete abolishment of rotating parts, i.e.: Abolishment of fans and abolishment of a hard disk by focusing on CompactFlash operation – as far as permitted by the application. Moreover, a battery is not necessarily required, only if remanent data are to be stored in the SRAM due to: Remanent storage of setup data (settable in BIOS) Time synchronization possible via LAN (via DiagMonitor) The Microbox PC offers zero maintenance if the hard disk and battery can be done away with! Zero Maintenance

15 Operating Systems Windows® XP embedded
Why Windows XP embedded? The bulk memory requirement of Windows XP Professional is too large for a CompactFlash-based system The license costs of Windows XP embedded are considerably lower than those of Windows XP Windows XP embedded contains additional features for embedded applications, e.g.: Enhanced write filter: Activatable write protection for partitions to increase system stability Message box interception: Configurable output suppression of system and fault messages for unattended systems Windows® XPe

16 Operating Systems Windows® XP embedded
Windows XP embedded is pre-installed on the Microbox PC to allow for manifold applications Small size facilitates application on CF card 512 Mbyte or larger Standard drivers/functions included, e.g. CD-ROM, memory stick, print service, UPS support, etc. If required, drivers can be subsequently installed The pre-installed Windows XP embedded is system-tested Turn-key system Cost reductions in terms of system generation, tests and commissioning Can the customer subsequently install, e.g., Microsoft Word? Yes. For license reasons, the Microsoft Office packages must only be used application-specifically; no general use (e.g. letter preparation) permissible. Incl. Service Pack 2 Feature Pack 2007 Latest hot fixes and security patches for increased system reliability Booting of USB bulk memories, e.g. to boot USB flash drives in service cases Improved Enhanced Write Filter (EWF) allows, e.g., for the write protection for individual files instead of partitions only Windows® XPe

17 Windows® XP embedded Optimization
If required, XPe can be further optimized for special applications Adding of components not contained in the standard image Reduced demand for CF cards thanks to abolishment of unnecessary components A special tool chain (Target Designer) and respective know-how are required for these adjustments A&D SE IPC CC offers a project-specific generation of XP embedded Windows® XPe

18 Windows® XP embedded Basic Images
Two basic versions cover the basic requirements. 1. Basic image for applications in rough environments Application on Microbox with CF card ( 512 Mbyte) Restricted Windows functional scope Full interface support Enhanced Write Filter enabled Support of Win AC Basis 2. Basic image for universal applications Application on Microbox with hard disk Full functional scope of XP Professional Subsequent installation of any customer software Enhanced Write Filter possible but not enabled Windows® XPe

19 Windows® XP embedded Updates / Virus Scan / Firewall
XPe fillings contain a “Desktop Update” component for the subsequent installation of XP Professional hot fixes via USB devices (CD-ROM, USB stick ..) or via LAN Subsequent installation of complete service packages not possible Microsoft offers correspondingly updated components for XPe time-delayed to the respective service packs . These components are integrated in the XPe fillings as required. Virus scanner With its configurable Enhanced Write Filter (EWF), XPe offers a better protection against viruses than Windows XP Professional A virus scan can be installed, updates are carried out with the conventional mechanisms as with XP-Professional in consideration of the EWF (disabling with installations) Firewall The XPe fillings of the Microbox contain the “Internet Connection Firewall” It has to be configured by the end user Windows® XPe

20 Operating Systems Others
Thanks to the standard architecture, also other operating systems can be employed. Installation and switch-on test with Suse Linux Further operating systems (QNX, VxWorks ...) upon request Project-specific solutions are realized by the SIMATIC PC Customization Center. If required, a customer-provided software image can be pre-installed ex works. Realtime operating system SICOMP RMOS3 system-tested on Microbox PC 427B Other Operating Systems

21 Back-Up and Restoration
A restore DVD is included in the standard scope of supply. For data back-up and restoration, the standard IPC tools ("SIMATIC PC/PG Image & Partition Creator“) or comparable products can be used. With the CompactFlash version, the application of a PCMCIA adapter in the programming device is recommendable. For monitoring the Microbox PC, the "SIMATIC PC DiagMonitor" monitoring and remote signaling software can be employed. Data Back-Up

22 Restore DVD The restore DVD contains the as-delivered XPe image of the SIMATIC Microbox PC 427B for the respective filling Transfer of the image to the hard disk / CF card via Ghost (component DVD) Delivery of SIMATIC Microbox PC without restore DVD Customers can order the restore DVD from the Customer Support SIMATIC Microbox PC + Customer application SIMATIC Microbox PC + Customer application Data Back-Up Siemens CS Fuerth Customer SIMATIC Microbox PC + Customer application SIMATIC Microbox PC + Customer application Machine image Restore DVD + Customer application

23 Data Back-Up via Buffered SRAM
2 Mbyte SRAM for data back-up in case of network failures High-performance bus interface (32-bit PCI, memory-mapped) Data storage via integrated battery High-capacity battery (> 5-year service life) Remanence strategies Cyclic storage of important data Storage of all required data in case of network failure Initialization of data recovery via Powerfail and NMI Storage time after interrupt at least 10 msec, depending on HW configuration Currently application-specific implementation of data back-up Data Back-Up Storage time in full configuration 10 msec (with max. power demand) Network failure Computer power OFF 5msec min. 10 msec 1-3msec frequent normal voltage interruptions NMI, initialization of the interrupt service routine

24 Microbox PC Data Back-Up Customer Benefits
Important data can be rapidly stored in the battery-buffered SRAM even after switch-off Faster writing of small data volumes on SRAM than on CompactFlash or hard disk WinAC can store data blocks and continue operation with the saved data upon the next start-up SRAM on-board, i.e. no additional HW (memory board) required Data Back-Up

25 Microbox PC Data Back-Up Status Win XPe
Windows XPe works with the same mechanisms as Windows XP Professional Storage of remanent data in the SRAM via access to memory in the SRAM by employing an I/O driver (e.g. IMCEA driver) via WinAC and use of suitable remanence library Data back-up is carried out application-specifically by means of suitable cyclic storage measures Safe shutdown in case of voltage failures (incl. prior storage of open files) via UPS Data Back-Up

26 BIOS Boot devices Adjustment of Microbox PC-specific functions
