Module Board-to-Board Connectors

The Intel® Joule™ module uses two board-to-board connectors to separate communication buses, power, and GPIO signals to the expansion board. Module connectors J6 and J7 mate with Hirose* Electric Co LTD part number DF40C-100DS-0.4V or other compatible hardware.
To properly interface with the module, keep the board-to-board connectors parallel, and maintain 19 mm between long-edge centerlines and 15.5 mm between short-edge centerlines, as shown in the figure below.
The board-to-board interface connectors have a nominal stacking height of 1.5 mm between the inside planes of the module PCB and expansion board. See Module Retention for more information.
The following figure provides pertinent dimensional information for the expansion board for reference only. This information can change at any time. See the Mechanical and Environmental Information in the Expansion Board Datasheet for more details.
The module requires a keep-out area of 52 mm by 32 mm. Provide extra clearance for the installation tooling, accessory cabling, and module removal methods required by service and maintenance.

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.
