Anyone have the pinout for the iMac revs A/B mezzanine/perch slot? Or any other mezzanine slot info? I Googled 'til my eyes bled but found nothing other than references to the Game Wizard and Formac's scsi adapter.

I have the crazy notion to add a PCcard cage, arguably the most useful of all upgrade slots short of an actual PCI slot.

i've heared of somthing

it was a video out and serial port card for early iMacs, it did use the mezzanine slot, but i think it wasn't supported by apple (it might have voided the warranty or summit) it was called the iPort and made by Griffin, it cost about
$60-$90 and scroll to the bottom of the page

The iPort didn't use the Mezz

The iPort didn't use the Mezzanine slot. It just connected to the internal headers on the motherboard for onboard video and IrDA adapters.
