6. My ADL Embedded Solutions SBC will not boot up. When I turn it on there is no display or keyboard, but I can see a flashing YELLOW LED on the board. What could be the problem?

The ADL Embedded Solutions SBC’s ADLS15PC, ADLGS45PC, ADLD25PC, ADL2000PC, ADLQM67PC, ADLQM87PC, and ADLE3800PC, employ a power management PIC that monitors and controls the gating of supply power into the SBC. This Power Management PIC includes a status LED that can provide some indication as to the condition of the system power as it pertains to…

4. How do I implement the LAN activity LED on the ADLGS45PC?

The LED configuration for the GS45 LAN ports are based on the diagrams in the Intel 82579 User’s manual. (see the link below). The reference diagram is on page 239 of this manual. http://www.intel.com/content/dam/doc/datasheet/82579-gbe-phy-datasheet-vol-2-1.pdf There is a 300-ohm current limiting resistor in the reference diagram. The ADLGS45PC has a built-in 330-ohm resistor for both the…

3. What is the expected life of the CMOS Battery?

ADL Embedded Solutions CMOS batteries (p/n 100-9655) are based on a 3.6V Lithium Thionyl Chloride battery, with a 100k ohm, 5%, ¼W, current limiting resistor installed to protect battery life. The resistor provides a voltage drop for a 10uA or smaller load so that the 3.6V potential does not produce excessive on-state current. Current does…
