Operating Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)
Electrostatic discharge tolerance is specified at ±4 kV on all interface connectors.
Temperature Range
The Intel® Joule™ module is designed to operate normally while the Ambient Air Temperature remains between 0°C and 70°C. This assumes open air operation (no enclosure), no solar heating, and workloads that are appropriate for the cooling solution in use.
Cooling Fan (J17)
The expansion board provides a three-pin fan connector (J17) which is located on the bottom side of the board. The connector provides a +5 volt (+V5P0V) supply. Accessories, such as the Reference Fan with Mounting Block or Integrated Fan Heatsink (Fansink) Assembly, could connect here for power.
Refer to the Thermal Management Guide for related information.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
