You should follow these instructions if you want to put the electronical parts onto a mini-adaptor, which you can hide inside the case of the parallel port plug.
On circuit diagrams, plugs are displayed as viewed from the back side, the solder side. Chips are displayed as viewed from above; also, see the small semicircular cut for finding the correct orientation. When in doubt, see the corresponding description on the legend page.
First, create the XA1541 mini-adaptor.
You need the following parts to build this cable:
One solderable 6-pin male DIN plug (Commodore serial plug)
A shielded 4-wire or unshielded 5-wire cable of, preferably, at most 2 meters
Step 1. Solder one end of the cable onto the DIN plug.
Step 2. Solder the other end of the cable onto the XA1541 mini-adaptor port. These include the following connections:
|DIN plug|| Adaptor port |
|2, GND|| 1 |
|3, ATN|| 2 |
|4, CLK|| 3 |
|5, DATA|| 5 |
|6, RESET|| 4 |
You can find the description of all parts used on the diagrams at the legend page.
