SCSI hardware uses a variety of different connectors. Here are a few of the more common ones.
Figure 396 shows the Ribbon IDC 50, an internal 50-pin connector for hard drives, CD drives, etc.
Figure 397 illustrates the popular Centronics 50-contact connector for external peripherals such as scanners and tape drives.
Figure 398 shows the DB-25 SCSI connector, an external 25-pin connector used by Zip drives, scanners, and many Mac devices.
The 50-pin DB-50, an external 50-pin connector used by Sun workstations, is illustrated in Figure 399.
Figure 400 shows the Half-Pitch DB-50, a smaller version of the full-sized external 50-pin DB-50. It is used as a host and peripheral connector by Jaz drives and many CD drives.
The Half-Pitch DB-68 SCSI connector is the 68-pin (wide) version of the Half-Pitch DB-50. Illustrated in Figure 401, it is used with Low Voltage Differential (LVD) cables and accessories to achieve peak performance with U2W drives.
Figure 402 demonstrates the Very High Density Centronics 68, a 68-pin contact connector used on many servers & RAID controllers.
Finally, Figure 403 shows the SCA-80, a compact 80-contact connector used by SCA drives for RAID controllers.
