Anton Gorbunov did a teardown of his Nexus 7 dock and discovered that there are only some passive components on the PCB. He notes that with some pogopins it should be easy to make your own Dock.

    Sweet. This should be cloned and sold on ebay from sketchy chinese sellers in a heartbeat then :)

  5. The diameter of the Pins is 0.9mm in eBay you can find the P75 J1 or the P100 J1. OK this pogopins are long then from Asus.

  • KH: Really? They are digital inputs driven by an MCU. The MCU GPIO probably has diode clamps and ESD protection. Have you experienced such failures? Please...
  • KH: Neither. Google "Marco Schweighauser’s 8-bit virtual Javascript CPU" and see the first result. Sounds more like a very limited feature toy CPU.
  • Alan: "8-bit x86 like CPU" - isn't that an 8080, or Z80?
