We are gathering and investigating information about hardware interfaces of modern and obsolete hardware, pinouts of ports, expansion slots, and other connectors of computers and other devices. This information is essential for everyone who wants to investigate modern computer hardware, explore the way how it's works, connect various devices to computer.
Our handbook includes more than 1400 documents:
- Pinouts of computer hardware components, internal connectors, buses and input/output ports (i.e. PC Serial port pinout, PCI Bus ).
- Pinouts and brief information about some common computer hardware interfaces (RS232 interface, USB, SATA connector and many others).
- Pinouts of audio/video connectors (i.e. S-Video connector or VGA connector pinout)
- Pinouts of cellular phones, consumer audio/video hardware and over devices (i.e. Nokia Pop port pinout or Apple iPod, iPhone, iPad Dock connector)
- Schemes of cables and converters for computer peripherals and other devices (i.e. USB to RS232 serial converter schematic)
- Layout and numbering scheme of common and device-specific connectors
All documents are free and available online in English and Russian.
The hardware investigated here includes modern (PC, Apple,...) and obsolete (Atari, Commodore, MSX,...) computers,
mobile phones and some other devices (like digital cameras, GPS units, PDA,...).
Most of our documents are created by our visitors, written by pinouts.ru team or collected from public available sources (with link(s) to origin(s) included).
Content of this site is a result of our collective work. Something left uncovered? You may add new pinouts! Submit your information to pinout wizard and the new pinout webpage will be created for all of us.
You are welcome to ask any questions about pinouts, connectors and wiring at the forum.
Feel free to correct existing documents, add explanations, fix errors, suggest related links at this forum (don't forget to include title of document(s) affected).
In addition, you may submit your suggestions and comments via guestbook.
