Introduction
VL-EPM-P2/VL-EPMp-P2 Reference Manual 2
RoHS Compliance
The VL-EPM-P2/VL-EPMp-P2 is RoHS-compliant.
ABOUT ROHS
In 2003, the European Union issued Directive 2002/95/EC regarding the Restriction of the use of
certain Hazardous Substances (RoHS) in electrical and electronic equipment.
The RoHS directive requires producers of electrical and electronic equipment to reduce to
acceptable levels the presence of six environmentally sensitive substances: lead, mercury,
cadmium, hexavalent chromium, and the presence of polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and
polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) flame retardants, in certain electrical and electronic
products sold in the European Union (EU) beginning July 1, 2006.
VersaLogic Corp. is committed to supporting customers with high-quality products and services
meeting the European Union’s RoHS directive.
Warnings
ELECTROSTATIC DISCHARGE
Warning! Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage circuit boards, disk drives, and other
components. The circuit board must only be handled at an ESD workstation. If an
approved station is not available, some measure of protection can be provided by
wearing a grounded antistatic wrist strap. Keep all plastic away from the board,
and do not slide the board over any surface.
After removing the board from its protective wrapper, place the board on a
grounded, static-free surface, component side up. Use an antistatic foam pad if
available.
The board should also be protected inside a closed metallic antistatic envelope
during shipment or storage.
HANDLING CARE
Warning! Care must be taken when handling the board not to touch the exposed circuitry
with your fingers. Though it will not damage the circuitry, it is possible that small
amounts of oil or perspiration on the skin could have enough conductivity to cause
the contents of CMOS RAM to become corrupted through careless handling,
resulting in CMOS resetting to factory defaults.
EARTH GROUND REQUIREMENT
Warning! All mounting standoffs should be connected to earth ground (chassis ground). This
provides proper grounding for ESD and EMI purposes.

HARDWARE ASSEMBLY
The VL-EPM-P2 uses both PC/104-Plus (PCI + ISA) connectors, and the VL-EPMp-P2 uses
only the PCI connector. The module can be installed in PCI stack position 0-3. As shipped, the
VL-EPM-P2 is configured for position 0 (first on the stack adjacent to the CPU board). Make
sure that jumper V2 matches the chosen stack position (see Jumper Summary). PC/104 (ISA)
modules must not be positioned between the VL-EPM-P2 and any PC/104-Plus (PCI + ISA)
modules on the stack.
The entire assembly can sit on a table top or be secured to a base plate. When bolting the unit
down, make sure to secure all four standoffs to the mounting surface to prevent circuit board
flexing. Standoffs are secured to the top circuit board using four pan head screws. Standoffs and
screws are available as part number VL-HDW-105 (metric thread) or VL-HDW-106 (English
thread).
An extractor tool is available (part number VL-HDW-201) to separate modules from the stack.
Use caution when using the extractor tool not to damage any board components.
STACK ARRANGEMENT EXAMPLE
The figure below shows the VL-EPM-P2 installed above the CPU board in the PC/104-Plus
stack. The module can be installed in slots 0-3. Jumper block V2 must be configured to match the
module's stack position.

LED_WWAN#, LED_WLAN#, AND LED_WPAN# SIGNALS
The LED status indicator signals are provided to enable wireless communications add-in cards to
provide status indications via the built-in LEDs at positions D1 and D2 (for J1) and D3 and D4
(for J2) on the module. The behavior of the LEDs is determined by the add-in card manufacturer.
The table below shows the routing of the D1 and D2 LEDs to the Mini Card LED status signals.
