Golden Finger Debug Board Connector

#1 Post by jal2 » Wed Apr 24, 2019 4:06 pm


some older Thinkpads (at least the *00 - *20 series) feature a so-called Golden Finger for Debug Board on their mainboards which let you connect to the LPC bus. This is a 2x13 pins connector with a 1mm pitch.
Does anyone know where to get a fitting connector for this finger? I'm thinking about cutting a PCIe slot into a fitting piece but maybe there is an off-the-shelf connector?
Getting the LPCCLK_DEBUG_33M to the connector usually requires an additional resistor.

EDIT: I'll try to use a nVidia SLI bridge connector, just got this idea in another forum.
