CTPCI - 3.3V input - what socket?

Postby wongck » Wed May 05, 2010 1:30 pm

I looked several times (actually more lile hundreds) at the photos of the CTPCI at powerphenix website.
I cannot make out the connector/socket for the 3.3V that must be used.
Does any know what type of connector it needs?

I read pmandin blog on fitting the CTPCI, & he wrote that he obtained a 3.3V from the SATA power.
I checked my PSU, and the SATA lines are yellow, red & black - 12V, 5V and ground.
There is no 3.3V for SATA on my PSU :(

The orange wires (pins 1, 2 and 11) on the main ATX power plug are 3.3V.

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_ATA#Power_supply . With 'standard' and 'micro' SATA connectors, you have 3.3V available, however you do not have it on 'slimline' connectors.

See also http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ATX_Power_ ... wer_supply for the ATX power connector.

Yes, thanks.
While at work I researched about ATX power supply.
Mine is a 20pin with 4 pin detachable... so there is a orange power on the detachable 4 pin. :D

Also researched on the SATA power.... mine is the lame type without 3.3V. It seems most HDD manufacturer does not need 3.3V so they plain do not bother to connect it.

Now that's sorted out...... the real question is 'What type of socket is that 3.3V on the PCI board section?"

seen it many times, but just can't make it out.

The man himself :thumbs:
Yeah, I researched that this afternoon, thanks.

what type of socket for 3.3V is on the PCI section of the CTPCI board?

There is no socket but a clamp where you can put the wire into. Just strip off some insulation, push the lever and put the wire in. Alternatively, solder the orange wire to the PCB.
What Atari do you want to modify today?

Wow.... excellent. Neat idea. :thumbs:
So i can just take from my 4-socket connect that is not used by CT63.
Thanks!!
