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.
