Title: Help to identify wacom board to board connector
Post by: Adlorem on December 30, 2011, 07:52:26 PM
Does anyone know what kind of connector is this? This is board to board connector which connects Intuos3 logic board with controller board. I need to extend this with cable (if possible). Thanx for your help in advance :)

This appears to be quite high-density. How many connections?  Take a picture of the cable.  You really need to extend this(?)

As I thought Japanese piece of art. Hirose FX8C High-Speed (3.125Gbps) Stacking Connector. There will be no way to extend it in easily.

At 3.125Gbps you do not want to extend this. But I suspect this is not the speed it is running at.

Why do you want to extend it?  Are you thinking of trying to move the magnetic reflector sheet farther away from the sensor to reduce jitter and the daughter board is in the way?

I am building my cintiq on aluminium composite plate. It has to layers of aluminium that could be used for shielding purpose. I wanted to move the whole electronic under this plate, but with this connector it looks now quite difficult. I will experiment with reflector hight to determinate if it has any positive or negative effects on pen reading hight.

Cool.

I just created a new tool you can use in the fight against jitter over here (http://forum.bongofish.co.uk/index.php?topic=2052.msg16344#msg16344).
