Thread: Apple IIe card Y cable pinout

  1. #1

    Default Apple IIe card Y cable pinout

    I know This issue has been discussed here some time ago on other threads, but although i have checked the websites mentioned on these threads, i cannot find the cable pinout. Of course i can find the floppy and joystick pinouts but cannot find the pinout for the connector that plugs on the card itself. Does anyone owning the original cable, have been so patient to check the pinout for the rest of us willing to make a compatible replacement?

    Inakito.

    Does anyone know if the pinout for this cable is available? There's a couple of dead links in this thread (looks like the site vintagemacworld.com doesn't exist any more?). The cable that is for sale is also out of stock.

    Here you go...

    C4 - Can I make my own Y-cable?

    Possibly. The connector at the IIe card end uses an unusual connector (3 rows of pins, 26 pins in total). Connectors in the right hand column are those on the IIe card; for pin numbering, please see this image file. The connector is shown as viewed from the back of the Mac LC.

    Note: these pinouts have not been tested and you use this information at your own risk.

    I couldn't leave well enough alone, so I did a circuit board version of the Apple IIe Y-Cable replacement. It's Open Source Hardware, so you can download the Gerber and make your own, see this GitHub for the design...

    Or people can DM me and I'l send a board, I have 7 left.

    This is very cool! I think I have a IIe card that has been waiting for a Y-cable.
