Multiemisja 透明图标

这Multiemisja图标是一个负责任的图标。这意味着它的四项决议进行了优化,从微小的16×16,直到非常详细的80×80。风格来自于最新的Microsoft Office,这使得它适合任何Windows应用程序,特别是那些具有带状工具栏控件。不同于仅仅有数以百计的图标其他图标包,这个怪物图标包包含15,000图标,都在相同的风格和品质。
There is a medium sized circle on the left. Attached are two squiggly arrows directed towards two of four small circles vertically aligned to the right of the larger one.

Master/Slave, Client/Server, Broadcast, Unicast, Multicast (5 icons)

From a Digital Electronics background perspective there are digital components, like the JK Flip Flop, or the D Flip Flop, which implement a Master-Slave principle. In the computing world another term used to indicate the master/slave principle is server/client. If you want to describe by means of iconification the Master/Slave principle, how would you iconify this?

I've been thinking about it, but I can't seem to design such icons to indicate wether a machine or component is acting as a master or as a slave. Besides that: you can have multiple masters and multiple slaves. For example: three masters and ten slaves. Each master waits for his turn to use the databus, while the slaves follow the master to which they have a corresponding relation (mostly an ID or bitregister). It goes too deep to start lecturing about master/slave, but my goal is to have two icons showing that "the thing" is either a master or a slave. I don't mean client or server icons! Another important thing is the communication of the master/slave principle. Does the master broadcast? unicast? or multicast? It's all related, not only within the digital electronics world, but also in the computing world.

Please feel free to come up with any good icons for master and slave. I think it is a design challege, because I can't figure out how on earth you symbolize these meanings. Icons for unicast, multicast and broadcast are welcome too, because they visualize the communication between the master and slave. Thank you for your design skills, I wish I had these too.
