MS3X Card dimensions.

Postby thomas505 » Thu Sep 08, 2011 3:59 pm

Hey, i'm currently designing an expansion board to sit where the MS3X card would sit, so I was wondering if anyone knew:

  • How wide the MS3X card is (or the mainboard - they should be the exact same width)
  • The offset of the DB37 connector, as I want to put a DB37 connector to fit in the premachined slot in the endplate.

Thanks, Thomas.

The MS3X is 4.000" wide, and the distance between the bottom of the primary DB37 connector and the bottom of the MS3X DB37 connector is 1.040".

I actually need the offset of the connector relative to a side of the card - in essence where to place the DB37 connector in my PCB layout. (as the vertical distance is easy to fix by just mounting in a different slot).

Thanks, Thomas.

It's the same as the v3.0 board, about 1.415".

Hey, so are you saying the dimension in yellow is 1.415"?

Sorry, that comment did deserve clarification. It's 1.415" from the edge of the card to pin one.
