Hey /diy/, quick question here.

I need to connect a second 3.5" HDD to my cubieboard2 via USB (the only SATA port is already populated).

Power for the HDD is not an issue - I'll hook it up to a 5V/12V dual rail power supply, so I basically need the cheapest USB SATA controller I can get.

The catch is that all the crap on ebay has the combined data/power connector which is a no go because it's 5V only (no good for 3.5" drives).

Rewiring something like pic related seems like too much hassle for something that should be really simple.

Can't believe I didn't think of that!
Thanks a million, anon.
>>
>>904329
there are connectors with TWO usb cables that, combined, power a 3.5"
>>
>>904358
I considered that option but figured it's neither smart nor efficient to route 5V through the tiny arm board and then convert up when I have a 12V source waiting at the ready.

i'd do a bit of surgery on the USB board, slicing off any traces connecting to the +5 and +12 SATA pins, and soldering in 3 wires from the ext power supply: +5, +12, and joining the grounds.

While there's a thread up....
Can anyone ID this connector? Does it even have a name? 5 pin DINs have a different spacing.

Its probably customer for Hakko. This list the irons that work with that station in their manual. I'm sure you can pick up one on eBay or something.

>proprietary shit

figures...

problem is, I need the pokey bit receptacle not the pokey bit itself. Thanks for the manual tho.

it's not necessarily proprietary. there are companies, like Hirose, which make a huge selection of odd connectors which are often impossible to find at any retailer.
>>
>>904370
There's lots of open-source soldering station projects for Hakko-compatible handles. Search for one that uses the connector and you'll get a part number.
>>
>>904450
The connector itself is a 5-pin DIN; the actual pinout will be proprietary as it's a soldering station, not an audio device...
>>
>>904361
>>904358
And anyway, they don't power a 3.5", because 3.5" drives actually need the 12v to power the spindle motor, and don't produce it themselves from the 5v rail because why would they when there's a perfectly good 12v rail available?

Even if you connected them up to a 5v nuclear power station, they still wouldn't work.

>>904370
"DIN" means it's a standard defined by the German equivalent to ANSI, there are a fuckton more of them than MIDI connectors.
>>
>>904370
I'm new to this but can't you replace the current connector with a new connector from a different company and also replace the one on your handle? Maybe even remove the connectors and hard wire it?

..as above anon noted, that is a standard connector - its 5-pin 240 deg DIN (more commonplace is the 180 degree 5-pin DIN, where degree is the 'sweep' - see Pic).

Used to get these (240° `s) a lot in old vcrs, but, you'll still find them everywhere, good quality would be Amphenol, for example - dont use the plastic crap variants for this, lifes too short.
