While Technologic Systems ensures long term availability and support for this product, customers are strongly encouraged to upgrade to the more capable TS-8550 for the same price.

The TS-8500 is a complete platform for development, evaluation, and prototyping with TS-SOCKET macrocontroller CoMs. It is compatible with any TS-4xxx module. All signals on the board to board TS-SOCKET connectors are brought out to external connectors on the TS-8500.


With the exception of high-speed signals where it would affect data integrity, all TS-SOCKET connector pins are brought out to standard .1" spacing male headers. In many cases, this allows TS-SOCKET functionality to be proved out before thousands of dollars are invested in hardware prototypes. The pin numbering is clearly labeled on the TS-8500 silkscreen.

Ethernet, USB, SD, and SATA lines are not connected to the pin headers due to signal integrity concerns. Instead, these signals are brought out to standard headers.


Please refer to the TS-SOCKET Manual for information on TS-SOCKET software.
