Notice
 

This guide is designed for experienced users to setup the 

system in the shortest time.   

 

Safety Precautions   

Always completely disconnect the power cord 
from your board whenever you are working 
on it. Do not make connections while the 
power is on, because a sudden rush of power 
can damage sensitive electronic 
components. 

 
Always ground yourself to remove any static 
charge before touching the 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

4-port Mini PCI module will show 4 AAEON PCI   

Communications Port and 2-port Mini PCI module will show 2 

AAEON PCI Communications Port as the figure 4 shows 4   

ports Mini PCI module

If the module is a 4-port Mini PCI, you don’t need to proceed with the   

set up process, you can use it directly. 2-port Mini PCI module   

please use following the sequence below to set up the module.   

1. Open 

the 

Terminal screen and make a   

cat /proc/tty6/driver/serial command to check your   

COM port settings.

As the screen showing, use 16550A to be UART prefix is   

the system COM ports, and we can see this system have   

2 COM ports, leave each other ttyS0, ttyS1. 

2. Make lspci -v command to find OXmPCI952 IRQ and I/O   

address 

 

 

 

As the screen showing, we can find ”Serial controller:   

Oxford Semiconductor Ltd:” this alphabetic string then to   

see the next line have IRQ number and the next have   

I/O address   

3.  Open the file: /etc/rc.local and add two commands   

setserial /dev/ttySX1 port IOADDR1 irq Y uart 16950 baud_base 115200 

setserial /dev/ttySX2 port IOADDR2 irq Y uart 16950 baud_base 115200

In above command line X1,X2 is the COM port number   

and it must be beyond beforehand. So in this case X1 is 4,   

X2 is 5. Besides, Y is IRQ number . Finally, we can set the   

I/O address individually. 

setserial /dev/ttyS4 port 0xe000 irq 9 uart 16950 baud_base 115200 

setserial /dev/ttyS5 port 0xe100 irq 9 uart 16950 baud_base 115200 

4. 

Please re-start your computer. 

5. Make 

cat /proc/tty/driver/serial command to see if the   

display is as following, if yes you already set it up.
