A project log for G4 iMac Display Connector

One of the biggest pain points for repurposing old G4 iMacs is having to rewire the display connector. I’m designing a PCB to streamline it.

Got a box of goodies from DigiKey the other day, but I think I ordered the wrong 26 pin connector for the inverter/speaker/fan. The big one in the picture is the one on the board, and the tiny one to the right is the part I ordered. Some of the spec sheets don’t have the connector dimensions which makes things extra fun.

I was able to track down a copy of the board schematics, so I’m hoping there’s a BOM there with part numbers, but I haven’t had a chance to dig into it yet.
