The folowing document describes and explain what rhomb.io labels means and how to read them to understand how to use them. Rhomb.io is a modular system with diferent Sockets used to implement the functionalities and the specifications of a diferent kind of processors and uControllers.

The Sockets

The sockets you will find in rhomb eco-system are listed below with the diferences between them. some of the sockets are compatible also between them, alowing the user grow and modify the specs of his product.

S100

The S100 Socket is the most simple and flexible of the family, S100 alows to connec diferent Master Modules like simple uControllers and pheripherals, is the fastest and flexible way to implement any kind of functionality.

Contains 100 Mechanical conections where you will find diferent interfaces and functionalities.


add functionalities --------------------

the Mechanical interface

the rhomb.io conectivity from S100 to S500 is based on Molex confidence. alowing 5GB/s of conectivity. the S100 shows as described in the folowing image.

The S100 Master Module and Slave Module

S100 means flexibles easy and low profile uController, in the same socket you can connect a module that can work like master or slave, this option regards to the IC integrated in the module, some devices have the option to work as slave or master. also depending the AP you are focussed.

some modules like :


add examples ---------------------

The ThinyS100 Socket

ThinyS100 is the smallest solution for S100 modules, the only diference between S100 and ThinyS100 is the mecanical size, mantains the same conectivity and flexibles, in the same socket you can connect a module that can work like master or slave, this option regards to the IC integrated in the module, some devices have the option to work as slave or master. also depending the AP you are focussed.

some modules like :


add examples ---------------------


S200

The S200 Socket is the next step from S100, only have the option to be implemented as master and he diference from S100 the S200 has other two connectors placed in Horizontal, total S200 has 4 Connectors and the vertical connectors are compatible with S100.

Contains 200 Mechanical conections where you will find diferent interfaces and functionalities.

S500

The S500 Socket is a Complex Processor Socket, up to 500 Signals brings from MonoCore to MultiCore processors. The big Diference between S400 is the Hig-Power Connector and the new interfaces. Contains 500 Mechanical Conections with the diferent functionalities and interfaces. 10 connectors placed to bring all the conectivity you can find in each silicon.
