SE/30 PDS Slot
PDS slot of Macintosh SE/30


Information about pin-assignments of the SER/30 PDS slot may be useful, particularly when you try to modify your SE/30.
The PDS slot of Macintosh SE/30 is made of a 120-pin EuroDIN connector.
The pin-assignments, signal-assignments, and meaning of the signals are shown in the figure and tables below.

Pin Assignments of the PDS Slot

Numbers 1, 40, 81 and 120 are printed on the logic board for right positioning.

Numbers from 1 to 120 are actually assigned to the PDS slot (EuroDIN connector) pin positions on the logic board circuit.
Four positioning numbers 1, 40, 81 and 120 are printed on the component side of the logic board.
On the rear side of the logic board, mesh patterns indicates the ground (GND) lines.
By comparing the GND pins (B2, B16, B22, B28, B34, A39, B39, C39) with the mesh patterns, we can determine the correspondence between the actual pin positions/numbers (1-120) and the assignment numbers (A1-A40, B1-40, C1-C40) in the above figure.
