Holy Smokes! how'd I miss that? I thought I looked high and low on mouser.... Thanks eelhead, I'll be sure to get some of these for a revised circuit design
Yes! I am interested! That looks incredible! So, I will look for a solution to the firewire jack situation. You are right, the jack pins all seem to go in the opposite direction on the vertical 1394 (Firewire 400) jack.
I was thinking, a solution might be to use another board on the opposite side of the one you are mounting...
What are the specs on the other Firewire port? It's a firewire 800 9 pin connector or something like that?
Also, would it be possible just to salvage old connectors from the original apple motherboard?
How can I get in one these? This is an elegant solution for an elegant case! - The primary reason I am doing the OS X 86 mod! I do love your solution zammykoo - super props!
OK, So, I found the 9 pin connector. It is here! I am not sure how it mounts onto the board, but... something is better than nothing!
Thanks student_al, it looks like your second link is broken, I can't access the page for some reason...
