Daily Deviation

Given 2009-08-08

Knowing exactly what's inside your machine can be invaluable, be it when you're planning for hardware upgrades or having a hardware related emergency situation, or simply for the sake of knowing what you are using. Well, let me introduce to you your new best friend: Computer hardware poster 1.7 by *Sonic840. Drives, ports, cards, slots, connectors and sockets. - This image shows and names them all! The best part? You can actually buy this as a print, for maximum full-size offline use! ( Featured by MidnightExigent )

Why so damned many?  There are already too many kinds of electrical outlets, but not nearly as many as there are computer connectors.  Why?

I love this poster and have pointed a few people at it. Makes it a lot easier identifying some old bits of hardware that land in our test area.
drakenstark Featured By Owner Edited Mar 30, 2015
Some of what you have listed as Desktop Card Slots are also known as EDGE connectors. PCI, PCIe, and AGP are just three examples. A different variety, of many numbers of pins, are used in a lot of arduino projects as well as in some proprietary computer parts.

Oh, there's also IDC in the same sense. Commonly used with power buttons, 3.5mm audio ports, and USB ports from computer cases going to headers on motherboards.…

Very Good !!! Thanks !!

I love how you collect and compile all of these in one screen (I should say). It is so informative, despite the new ones aren't here, but that's okay. I'm going to share this to my students who also have passion to computers and wants to learn more about them.
Morris2015 Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2015
The different type of SAS connectors and Fibre optic ports on modern workstations and servers are not the poster (yet)
i could make some pictures of those if you are planning on adding them?

Sonic840 Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2015  Hobbyist Artist
That's a question for Deviant Art support as I am not involved in the ordering/shipping process. sorry!
Colton18k Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2014

Aww... No sata cables?
Sonic840 Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
you typically don't see normal SATA ports on the outside of the case. which is why I did not include it. eSATA was include.
