  • 5-pin DIN Connectors - These connectors have an arrangement of 5 pins circular pattern and are widely used for older computer keyboards.

  • S-Video connectors - These have 4 pins arranged in 2 rows and a keying block so that it cannot be inserted incorrectly.

  • PS/2 connectors - These connection types have 6 pins and a keying block. This connector has become an industry standard for connecting mice and keyboards although was first used on PS2 consoles.

  • 8-pin Mini Din - These connectors have 3 pins at the top and bottom and 2 in the middle. They are commonly used on portable video devices and projectors.
