MIDIbox SID-NUXX - Display Cable
This is the pinout of cable from J15 of the MIDIbox SID-NUXX to the Crystalfontz CFAP2002A-Y-ECS PLED / OLED, the CFAH2002A-RMI-JP LCD, and other similar displays. Note that J15 of the MIDIbox SID-NUXX uses the same pinout as the reference MIDIbox core schematic and SmashTV's MBHP CORE Module, so this cable will likely be usable with other MIDIbox implementations as well.
Please confirm this pinout before using it, as you don't want to let the blue smoke out of your display. Also be certain to note which way the cable goes. Connecting either end incorrectly (or reversing the cable) could damage your MIDIbox, your display, or both!
On my cable shown here, Pin 1 is the side of the connector near the pink edge of the ribbon cable.
In order to make this cable, I used the following parts:
- 517-89116-0001 - .100 Wire Mount Connectors 16P IDC SOCKET (x2)
- 517-3448-89116 - .100 Wire Mount Connectors 16P STRAIN RELIEF FOR 89110 SERIES (x2)
- 16 Place .100" Flat Ribbon Cable
Additionally, a 16 place, double row (2x8) .100" pin header needs to be installed on the Crystalfontz display in order to allow the socket to connect. I used part 571-1032408 from Mouser for this.
I repurposed an old floppy drive cable in order to make a ribbon cable. Simply cut off the connectors on an old floppy drive cable and trim it to the needed width, being careful not to stretch the cable nor nick any of the conductors. If you use an 'IDE' cable for, be sure it is an older .100" spacing one and not the newer, finer type used with ATA-66 and faster controllers/drives.
