STS-RBM

TABLET USB HOST & CHARGING ADAPTER

The enhanced STS-RBM adapter board, featuring SIMULCHARGE® and RBM technology, is designed for large deployment commercial/OEM applications. SIMULCHARGE® allows select Samsung Android tablets to operate as a USB Host and permits simultaneous battery charging, while RBM is responsible for tablet battery modulation and DHCP connection recovery. These features are critical when installing tablets in kiosks or other commercial applications.

LAVA’s new RBM products are designed exclusively for Samsung Tablets. The RBM name breaks down as DHCP Recovery [the ‘R’] and Battery Modulation [the “BM”] for Samsung Android tablets. The RBM products improve tablet longevity, enhance DHCP network operations and reduce tablet heat generation.

The DHCP Recovery ensures that a Samsung Tablet does not fail to acquire a network address when using DHCP. If the network address lease expires, DHCP Recovery ensures that the Samsung Tablet re-acquires and restarts the network connection.

Battery Modulation works to mimic a standard operating Samsung Tablet both in its charging and discharging cycles; while minimizing trickle charging helps lengthen battery life as well as conforming to the standard Samsung “use case” for tablets.

Furthermore, there is an option to manage the screen brightness based on the time of day, which reduces heat build up.
