doug-doug the mighty's blog

why am I 'the mighty'?

For those who have followed my saga, you will notice that I have now updated many of my older blog entries to catalog them as part of the Lost Chronicles of Sarnia - for those of you not 'Fritter Critters during that era, the joke may be lost on you...

This is because I have begun a new chapter in my life and can truly say that my therapuetic venting has ended.

Connie, my 8600 PM

Connie, as I have lovingly named my 8600 PM, has a few upgrades. Because I can (my mantra), I am documenting in this blog, what has been done and what is planned or in process.

Pinout info for the Revision A iMac's 'mezzanine' (aka PERCH) connector

The first version of the iMac had a strange connector on the underside ot the motherboard. A manufacturer for the connector (and subsequent mates to it) is Molex and the part number is 52760-1609. The original purpose of this port was to connect a logic analyzer and quickly diagnose board problems. It was intended to make servicing the boards easier. It was never intended at any time for an upgrade card, and thus, the PCI loads were calculated for that board with the intention of no real PCI load being present. As such there are pull down resistors on the board to 'tune' the performance of the bus for not having a load on the connector
