If you have purchased the SimulConn  INPUT IO-board, you have it in one of these configurations:

  • SC-SIMVIMX-INPUT-R1 (raw PCB, no components. Add and solder DIP components yourself)
  • SC-SIMVIMX-INPUT-R2 (pre-soldered SMD components. Add and solder connecters yourself)
  • SC-SIMVIMX-INPUT-R2-COMPLETE (fully mounted and tested board)

Revision 1

The rev1 of the INPUT board has no SMD components but uses DIP components.

  • IC6: L7805CV
  • IC2: 74HC4067DB
  • C1: 100nF
  • C2: 1uF (polarized electrolytic capacitor)
  • C3: 100nF

Revision 2 : SC-SIMVIMX-INPUT-R2

This version has all the SMD components pre-soldered, and all you need is to mount the connectors of your choice.

What you need is:

  • J1 : Connects to the Extension board.
    It is recommended to use an IDC connector, as this is the same type used on the Extension board.
  • X1 : Connect to your cockpit switches.
    There are 16 input pins, one for each switch. The other side of the switch is connected to GND.
    Is it recommended to use screw terminal block connectors. But you can use pin headers and even solder cables directly.
  • X2 : This connectors outputs 5v. This is optional use as some switches requires 5v input.
    Is it recommended to use screw terminal block connectors. But you can use pin headers and even solder cables directly.
  • X3 : This connector provised GND to use for the switches.
    Is it recommended to use screw terminal block connectors. But you can use pin headers and even solder cables directly.

The following components are recommended/required for the IO Input board.
