This is another version of a connector, not so universal like the 34-pin one, but with a tap on the green LED, that can be used for the transmission and reception of infrared remote control signals.
It's easier to install and less mechanical work.

Note that it lacks USB and JTAG, so this is not for hardware developers. The 34-pin universal connector may be used to include this functionality if desired.

The pinout:

PinFunctionConnected to
1+3.3VJ2: Pin 1
2Serial Port 1: RXDJ2: Pin 2
3Serial Port 1: TXDJ2: Pin 3
4GNDJ2: Pin 4
5N.C. (key for correct orientation)nowhere
6+5VFB4, RHS
7I²C: SCLIC X1205: Pin 6
8I²C: SDAIC X1205: Pin 5
9Serial Port 2: CTSR142, LHS
10GPIO[1] (green status LED)R53, RHS

For more information about the pins 1-4 see AddASerialPort, for pins 1-4 and 9 see also Info.PinoutOfInternalSerialPort and for pins 7-8 see Info.PinoutOfI2CPort.

This is how it looks: (The key at position 5 is a bit hard to see) Attach:TenPinConn-Case-closed.jpg Δ

HOW-TO implant it:

It should look like this:
Attach:TenPinConn-Case-Indent.jpg Δ
  • Prepare the pins of the header:
    Pins 1,2,3,4: leave alone
    Pin 5: bend it or cut it off
    Pin 6: bend to the left
    Pin 7,8: bend to the right
    Pin 9,10: bend to the left
This is how it will look like:
